Here at Glenn Clark Radio, we always reflect on the Baltimore Ravens game in a more jovial manner. In retrospect, we like to choose five players on the team who — depending on the outcome of the game — deserve a Pat On The Ass or Slap To The Helmet.
The rules are simple: pick two players on defense, two players on offense, and one “wild card” (an offensive player, defensive player, special teamer or coach) who stuck out from the pack.
As you all are surely aware, the Ravens’ handled the Texans in Week 2, and as a result, we have some Ass Pats to hand out.
They will count down in sequential order before we name the ultimate prize — Two Pats on the Ass. That one player who one single Pat just wouldn’t sit right.
Without further ado:
Glenn’s Pats on the Ass, Week 2:
5. LB Patrick Queen
It was tough to leave Mark Ingram off the list, but his performance was more about one massive play. Queen was all over the field again making an impact from start to finish.
4. QB Lamar Jackson
It’s almost unfair because by most quarterback’s standards, Lamar had a REALLY good day. By Lamar Jackson standards, he was…kinda meh. The only real issue was the throw he missed to Hollywood Brown in the endzone which he should have had and one of the sacks he probably could have avoided.
3. RB Gus Edwards
Is 7.3 yards per carry good? All this dude has ever done is run freaking hard and hold on to the football. I know we’re all excited about J.K. Dobbins but let’s not forget how good this guy has been since arriving.
2. CB Marcus Peters
I genuinely thought the story of yesterday’s “dominance” was the play of the cornerbacks. Peters’ interception was spectacular.
1. CB Marlon Humphrey (two pats)
Best player on the field throughout the course of the game and made the play that caused the separation and allowed the Ravens to get comfortably ahead and play the style of football they want to play.
Kyle’s Pats on the Ass, Week 2:
5. LJ Fort
He has been a very effective presence alongside Patrick Queen through the first two weeks, accented by his scoop and score.
4. Marcus Peters
His interception was a thing of beauty and there’s no arguing with the fact that his presence across from Marlon Humphrey is one of the league’s best pairings.
3. Gus Edwards
His effectiveness is only slowed by volume, as whenever he touches the football, it seems he rips off a chunk of yardage.
2. Marlon Humphrey
Stellar in all facets of the game. Truly one of the best corners in football.
- Lamar Jackson
Was it his best game? No, not by any stretch. Was he still the most important player to the team’s success? Yes. Perhaps I should introduce a curve that contrasts against expectation, but for this week, I haven’t.
