1. Tyrod Taylor needs to get snaps every week.
Taylor’s speed is a dimension the Ravens need, and gives opponents something else to worry about. I’m not saying Taylor needs 10 to 15 snaps a game. But he deserves at least three to five snaps, considering how much the Ravens’ running game has struggled. As a quarterback, Taylor is a threat both running and throwing. Taylor ran for 17 yards the first time he touched it, and also converted a third-and-two for a three-yard run. His only pass attempt should have been caught, but was dropped by tight end Ed Dickson.
Giving Taylor more snaps may not thrill Joe Flacco, who wasn’t crazy about lining up as a wide receiver Sunday. “I want to line up behind center,” Flacco said. “Fun for a little bit, but that’s it.” However, the Ravens need some semblance of a running game, and Taylor can help. There is room for him to have a role, and for Flacco to still play well.
