It’s another beautiful Wednesday in the best city in the world… unless you live outside of Baltimore, like me, in which case it’s another great day wherever you’re at. But Baltimore is home to the greatest NFL team there is, the Baltimore Ravens. Yes, I still stand behind this after a brutal loss to the Cincinnati Bengals this past Sunday… but the past is the past! It’s time to lick our wounds and move on.

The best way to do just that? Scroll through Twitter, obviously. And I got some exciting and overall satisfying tweets and news for you on today’s edition of Out to Lunch.

Let’s start with some good news for the defense:

That’s right, starting defensive lineman Derek Wolfe is finally back to practice and, provided there are no setbacks, should be playing for the Ravens in their next game vs. the Minnesota Vikings. It’ll be much needed reinforcement, as the defense needs some more attitude up front, and Wolfe provides just that for this team.

Wolfe may not be the star that he was six years ago, but he showed last year for Baltimore that he still has some gas left in the tank. Hopefully, that remains true, and he can give a little more umph to this defense.

Robert Littal of Black Sports Online (BSO) had an awesome and accurate take on the Lamar Jackson slander here:

Seriously though, it’s somehow ALWAYS Lamar Jackson’s fault when the Ravens lose games. Ravens Wire’s Kevin Oestreicher added this to the same topic:

It is so true that it’s not even funny anymore.

Jackson gets so unfairly scrutinized every single week no matter how great a performance he puts up. Somehow, someway, it is ALWAYS Jackson’s fault for a loss. It’s truly mind-boggling just how big a target is on this young man’s back when the reality is he’s one of the five best players in football and literally every single team would love to roster him.

Let’s start a dialogue: Not every Baltimore Ravens loss is because of Lamar Jackson.

Moving on, some great news for people looking for some silver linings after the defense got manhandled vs. the Bengals!

We all knew that Patrick Queen was severely underwhelming to start the season, but he’s begun to flourish over the last couple of weeks. Credit it to moving from MIKE linebacker to WILL linebacker, but I will give a nod to a boost in confidence for Queen. Queen is clearly playing more comfortably than he previously was and it shows. Here’s hoping that this trend remains in a positive direction and Queen only plays better with each passing week. I’m sure a bye week will only help his chances of this, too.

Another update from PFF here for the top-five highest graded Baltimore ravens through seven games:

Mark Andrews is playing like the best tight end in football right now and I don’t care who disagrees. Meanwhile, Jackson remains stellar and Calais Campbell is outstanding. The big fella got his first sack of the 2021 season vs. Cinci, too. Hollywood Brown has been a Pro Bowl-caliber receiver this year and even with a couple bad games, Marlon Humphrey is still a top-5 corner in the game.

Real quick, because I am mad online about this… HOW IS THIS NOT TAUNTING?!

THIS IS LITERALLY EXACTLY WHAT TAUNTING LOOKS LIKE. I MEAN, C’MON REFS. We know you don’t like giving Jackson proper calls for late hits, but at least give us something is blatantly obvious as this. Goodness gracious.

To end it on a good note, here is a clip of picture day for the 2021 Baltimore Ravens:

Man, I love this team so much…

Always remember this Ravens Flock: Win, lose, or tie… RAVENS FLOCK UNTIL WE DIE.

The Baltimore Ravens will rebound from this devastating loss; they always do. The sky isn’t falling over one game… believe me. Baltimore will be back and even angrier following this bye week and get a decent Minnesota Vikings team at home. I have a feeling that the team has a lot in store for those poor Vikings.

Next Sunday can’t come fast enough, but until then have a great rest of your week, Flock!
