Happy Friday, Flock Nation, as we head into a tough matchup against the Green Bay Packers this weekend.

It’s also an especially happy Friday in Baltimore, as we have two big birthdays: J.K. Dobbins (23) and Pernell McPhee (33) on the team today.

An Aaron Rodgers visit in December is like the opposite of Christmas for most NFL defenses, and the Ravens’ loss of Chuck Clark only makes things worse.

But the good news is that the Color Rush jerseys are back, boding well for their chances against Green Bay.

The Ravens have historically dominated in their purple-on-purple uniform combo, so here’s hoping they get a little extra luck against the Packers on Sunday!

In case you missed it yesterday, ex-Ravens QB Robert Griffin III called for Wink Martindale to replace Urban Meyer in Jacksonville.

But I’m sure many Ravens fans would rather send a different coach to the Jaguars…

Wink also compared Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams to legendary filmmaking duo Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro this week, and it’s actually a pretty great comparison.

 

Scorsese and De Niro do amazing things when separated (The Departed, Awakenings), but they do their best work together (Casino, Cape Fear).

The same goes for Rodgers, who has found ways to win without Adams, but clearly does better with his top receiver in the lineup.

In fact, John Harbaugh even talked about how Rodgers “runs the offense” on Wednesday, which sounds like a director’s job to me.

Then if you factor in Adams’ acting skills on his route-running, the comparison becomes even more apt.

If they want to win, the Ravens will have to make like the Oscars and rob Rodgers as many times as possible on Sunday, and I think that’s about as far as I can stretch this particular metaphor, though you could argue that the Ravens’ injury-riddled season has been like the Goodfellas’ “Layla” montage at times. Everywhere you look, there’s another injury!

 

That’s the main story heading into Sunday’s game: the status of Lamar Jackson. It seems unlikely that he’s going to play, but even without no. 8, I believe in this Ravens team to GIVE US ALL THEY GOT!

 

Oh wait, that’s Al Pacino. And Michael Mann. Ah well, you get the point.
