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 Washington Football Team in Week 4, 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 4:
5. P Sam Koch
It must be nice to be able to have utter and complete confidence in the most effective passer in football history.
4. LB Matt Judon
The Ravens could use significantly more of that moving forward.
3. QB Lamar Jackson
It’s so tough to judge a day like that from Lamar Jackson. He perhaps wasn’t up to his typically brilliant standard-he missed some throws (particularly tough to make deep ones), but he made some massive plays-including the throw to Brown while he was being pushed to the sideline and the huge touchdown run. He has to be on the list.
2. TE Mark Andrews
So maybe we calm down a little bit?
1. CB Marlon Humphrey (two pats)
At the only point at which the game was competitive, he was the one who made the play that turned things.
Kyle’s Pats on the Ass, Week 4:
5. Marlon Humphrey
His forced fumble was a crucial play and further illustrated why he is so integral. He has proven time and again to be a player who can be counted on not only for consistency, but also for game-changing swings.
4. Patrick Queen
While he surely was partially responsible for the successful day from Antonio Gibson as a receiver, he still made numerous plays stopping the run, capped off by the impressive goal-line stand that harkened back to the days of Ed Hartwell and others.
3. Lamar Jackson
Not his best day by any stretch, but still a day that would be more than worthy of praise for any other quarterback. We hold him to an impossible standard, but that goes to show how good he’s been up until this point. Want to see better downfield accuracy still.
2. Matt Judon
While the sacks weren’t impressive individual displays, they hopefully represent a sign of things to come for the player the Ravens most heavily rely upon to get to the quarterback.
1. Mark Andrews
A statement game after a quiet two-week stretch, he showed once more why opposing defenses must zero in on him. His efficiency in the redzone is second to none.
