There's no way around the Ravens' top priority this offseason: improve the pass game.
You simply can't go far in the playoffs with the 32nd-ranked pass unit. Whether you want o-line improvements, new WRs, better schemes, or Lamar Jackson taking another step, it must get better.
"They were the stars of the game tonight." -- Rodgers on the O-line
This loss isn’t on Lamar. His o-line sold him and his kicker missed left 6 points on the board. Play calling also didn’t help.
Aaron Donald vs the Packers o-line is going to be fun to watch 👀 @SteveMariucci
O-Line into ‘20 with like 7 guys on the line who had played snaps and a couple highly touted freshmen, and we were thrilled at what a step up from 2019 it was. Now we could have the same 7 + a healthy 55, Rivers with exp, Walker, and legit young talent in reserve. That is MAJOR.
ICYMI a great article by @MattParrino
to kick-off #BillsMafia mania today: Bills’ Feliciano brings the ‘savage’ to o-line, embraces pressure with ‘alpha’ mentality https://t.co/svhzFZdzq2
Deshaun Watson threw for 4,800 yards and 33 TDs with no O-Line and me as his WR1 the last six weeks of the season. That ain’t it. https://t.co/ec0uDbWy8n
O-Line and defense didn’t show up at all —— guarantee people will say this was Goffs fault somehow.
1. Hollywood is good
2. Lamar needs coverage work
3. Stop pulling random dudes off the street in Baltimore and asking them to play O-Line
4. Google “furthest city from Baltimore” and put Greg Roman there
5. Draft receivers and linemen with every pick we have
What Lamar does for the Ravens is absolutely astounding. An absolutely dreadful o-line and receiving core, and yet he manages to put the team on his back year after year.
Please for the love of god get this man some help! A center that could snap and A big body WR is a start...
lamar obv didn’t play perfect, but that loss is 95% on the o-line
If y’all blaming Lamar, you didn’t watch how poor our O-Line was, it barely had time to throw. Yes he made mistakes, but when you don’t have time to throw or players don’t catch the ball, it’s not on the QB
2 out of 5 of the starting O-Line LIKED my tweets.
These dudes in the trenches!!!
Give these Maulers some credit #BillsMafia #Boettger #Feliciano #Dawkins #Morse #Williams https://t.co/2L3ZdCPAcY
Tough day to be a Raven😢
• O-line couldn’t block a soul
• D-line didn’t get any pressure
• To many crucial dropped balls
• To many penalties
• To many missed kicks
As always, #RavensFlock
O-Line and D-Line training starting this Spring... Well keep y’all informed
All in all, I blame Harbaugh, Roman, Wink to a certain degree; the o-line, WRs incl. Andrews & Dobbins, Tucker & Koch. And of course Lamar Jackson. Who’s now 1-3 in playoff games. Which is concerning heading into his 4th szn next year; 3rd as a full-time starter.
What he said.
Our O-Line looked really sloppy tonight as well.
No solid WR1 is a big deal too when we don’t have a “go to” guy to make Lamar an actual Dual-threat. Hollywood’s great but he gets thrown like a rag doll after catches.
I want Boykin gone, Snead gone, Ingram gone, Judon gone, Njakoue can come back at a discount, reshape that o-line, get a new passing coordinator and OC, draft a receiver and TE
I know it’s a team loss, but would you say a big responsibility lies on Lamar? He was sacked on important moments and threw that pick-6? Or was it more on the O-line and play calling?
Aye this loss pointed out our glaring weaknesses. Questionable play calling in big games & poor O-line play, & the lack of a receiving threat . https://t.co/lweldEF9cP
I’m curious about what you thought about our O-line play? I thought they played with the most intensity I’ve seen all season.
...also the defensive strategy was suspect when they didn’t know how to stop BUF’s screens out of the bunch formation. And the center/o-line’s performance was abysmal. On top of the fact that Lamar was bad. Bad read on the pick 6, held on to the ball too long & took sacks...
What does “wake up call” mean? Is that code for get rid of Roman or what? Lamar can be a game changer, but is the O-line the only issue?
This is one thing I'll disagree with you on. Roman needs to go. The formula isn't working and our QB getting slammed to the turf tonight needs to be a wake up call for the front office.
We need o-line help and a new OC. Time to move onto something new.
maybe if our o-line could block and receivers could get open. but that’ll be asking for too much so i don’t bother getting my hopes up😕
my point was Seattle has never addressed o-line and depended on RussellWilson to escape&extend plays,Wilson not the problem in Seattle AND Rams d-line met their match today vs GB, 0sacks, and a loss, LA was leaning on their pass rush and failed
Was the O-line cleared to travel to Buffalo? Sure didn’t look like it.
Thanks for the response, kind of what I was thinking. A couple receivers would help free up Andrews and diversify the pass game. O-Line seemed solid (even after Stanley's injury) except for center all year. Glad to see thinking we're only a few pieces away isn't illogical.
