Purple Friday Bird Droppings

The weekend is almost here and it’s raining again around the Baltimore region.

Check out the links as you dry out.

Ravens Looking to Jumpstart Running Game / Carroll County Times

The running game is a vital part of this offense. When the rushing game is stuffed the passing attack can not carry them.

Rams Face Uncertainty with with RBs Jackson and Williams / NFL

Just one reason why I think the Ravens have enough this week to win on the road.

Carr Pronounces Himself Healthy and Ready for Sunday / Ravens Insider

I hope so because they’ve missed him. Players say all kinds of things though.

Will the Real Ravens Please Stand Up? / NFL

It’s sooooo early. We still have no idea just what this team is all about yet.

Ricky Williams Getting Acclimated to New Running Scheme / Ravens Insider

After a strong start Williams fumbled last week and looked generally out of it. It’ll take time.

Rams Run Defense Could Prove Vulnerable Sunday / Press Box

It’s possible but I wouldn’t sell this young unit short. They are a concern for Sunday.

Ngata, Ravens Teammates Grateful for New Contract / AP

I wonder who is buying the drinks if the team gets a win on Sunday?

Locking Up Offense is Next Priority / ESPN

Grubbs, Flacco, and Rice are next in line – but in what order?

Who Should be Next in Line for an Extension – Rice or Flacco? / Baltimore Sports Blitz

You lean to Rice because he’s THE best offensive player but isn’t it harder to find a competent Quarterback?

Birk Returns and Evans Out of Practice / L.A. Times

Have a strong feeling Evans will be on the sidelines this Sunday.

Foxworth on Knee: “It Hurts, It Sucks”. / National Football Post

It takes about a year to get back to speed from ACL surgery. I applaud his willingness but he isn’t ready.

Morgan Fined for Hit on Flacco / FS Tennessee

The hit didn’t seem like much but it was after the whistle. In understand he is appealing it – not sure why other than the fact that he can.

Ravens Prepping for Quick Release/ Ravens Team site

Mentioned this on the radio show, if you can’t get to him then the Corner must press and bump to throw off timing. That did not happen last Sunday. Pitch and Catch. Easy Peazy.

Flacco: Time to Trust Young Receivers / Ravens Team site

Use that speed.

Can the Ravens Secondary Rebound? / CSN Baltimore

They should see a similar game plan to the Titans since the St.Louis running backs are hobbled. Preparation shouldn’t be a problem.

Gurode Calls Switch to Left Guard “Challenging” / Ravens Insider

It’s easier to understand why LeVoir started last week. I think Grubbs is out again and LeVoir may get another shot in St.Louis.

It’s Too Early to Give Up on Torrey Smith / The Sun

I agree. But we need someone to start to contribute as a viable third receiver- and soon.
