It was an offseason of change in Baltimore as Todd Monken arrived from School Soccer nationwide champions Georgia to steer a brand new period for the Ravens’ offense. In changing Greg Roman he sought to put in essentially the most numerous offense but, designed to protect not solely Lamar Jackson’s explosiveness however showcase his passing skills in a extra expansive aerial assault.

“That is not only a distinctive and inventive tough-to-stop working sport, it is like ‘ohh there’s open receivers down the sector, I have not seen that previously!’
“They nonetheless have working sport as a result of Todd Monken coaches that up, the offensive line is nice and Lamar makes the working sport higher. However you see Odell Beckham open, Zay Flowers open, Mark Andrews open; I see Lamar extra correct and higher from the pocket.
“I do know individuals will say ‘Lamar has all the time been good from the pocket’, however guys do get higher as they age, mentally he is even higher than he was 4 years in the past and he is actually enjoying properly.”
Derrick Henry stays the ever-familiar heartbreak of the Tennessee offense as he comes up in opposition to a Ravens protection that has ranked second in opposition to the run by 5 weeks this season.

“They lose a whole lot of gamers however they’re so well-coached it is arduous to run in opposition to them.
“If he can get to the second stage he could make huge performs. I might like to see him with a giant future. It is not simply him, although. They’ve a rookie Tyjae Spears who went to my alma mater Tulane, he’s making a very nice influence as a second working again.”

“Their offense is rating close to the underside of the league in a whole lot of classes however there are items there. They added a veteran receiver in DeAndre Hopkins who has actually performed properly for them, Ryan Tannehill is a veteran quarterback who has confirmed earlier than he can lead a crew to a deep playoff run.
“King Henry (Derrick Henry) is without doubt one of the nice working backs of his period, it will likely be powerful in opposition to the Ravens protection however he has the power to go for 150 yards.”
Marc Sessler is, in the meantime, braced for essentially the most dynamic and harmful MVP-winning Jackson but because the Ravens search to bypass the Titans’ stern floor blockade.
“They have been actual up and down the Titans, and it begins with their quarterback play,” stated Sessler. “I actually assume Tennessee’s energy in most video games has been their run protection, and Baltimore needs to assault you with the run however they’re much extra competent by the air proper now.
“This can be a far more completely different Ravens offense by the air than we have seen up to now. We’re getting one of the best model of Lamar Jackson that we have gotten shortly.”
