Fright Night for the Baltimore Ravens

Halloween crow

Today is Halloween. Tonight is Fright Night!

For local football fans these things are among the most feared terrors of the darkest nights for those who bleed purple:

Offensive Line: The pass protection of this group has been as effective as a linen shirt to the talons of Freddy Kruger.

Joe Flacco injury: Nothing personal Tyrod Taylor but this represents an apocalypse of epic proportions for fans of the Baltimore Ravens.

Defensive Line: They hold their ground about as effectively as a vampire on a tanning bed.

Jimmy Smith: Can he pick up the slack for the injured Lardarius Webb? Will he continue to go for WR tricks and fail to deliver treats? Is he a star on the rise or a bust in the making?

Lack of investment in LBS: The Ravens too often shop at the Dollar Store when it comes to new soldiers for General Ray Lewis. His flanks are as exposed and a nightmare, once unthinkable has become a frightening reality – a bad linebacker corps.

Dean Pees: Like a mad scientist how performs a lobotomy on your favorite super hero, he has been the equivalent of Ravens kryptonite. His strange brew has dropped the team’s defense to among the league’s worst.

Cam Cameron: His Zombie-like play calling has the Ravens offense playing like the living dead on the road.
