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’ won against the Eagles despite a scare at the end in Week 6, 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 6:
5. TE Nick Boyle
It was almost impossible to pick a second offensive player this week. While the unit scored points, some came off short fields and a lot of it was thanks to Lamar Jackson’s feet. But Boyle established himself early as an additional target to Andrews and Brown, something the Ravens have badly needed.
4. S DeShon Elliott
It would have been REALLY nice for those of us that had postgame shows to do if he could have actually hauled in that interception. But still, he forced two fumbles, each of which turned into a touchdown*.
(*Yes, one of them was an Eagles touchdown. But it was still a good play.)
3. QB Lamar Jackson
Sure, he was uneven. But his success on the ground proved to be a major story in how the Ravens won the game.
2. CB Marlon Humphrey
Sometimes it doesn’t always show up in big plays/turnovers, but it’s rare to watch a Ravens game these days and not think to myself “he’s the best player on the field.”
1. DE Calais Campbell (two pats)
But when someone has three sacks, they’re the best player on the field.
Kyle’s Pats on the Ass, Week 6:
5. Nick Boyle
He made the touchdown catch and made himself available. It wasn’t a great offensive day, so he is more or less the de facto pick.
4. Matt Judon
The two-point conversion stop at the end was clearly pivotal, and he was at least involved in some quarterback hits before then, even if Wentz still found a way to complete a pass.
3. DeShon Elliott
Felt like his coming out party. Had he come up with the interception at the end, he would have been a slam dunk for No. 2.
2. Lamar Jackson
In a game where there was only one genuine standout, Lamar has to slot second for me. It also says plenty about how amazing he is that we still leave a 180-yard passing, 100-yard rushing performance as somewhat underwhelming.
1. Calais Campbell
That’s why they brought him in this offseason. There is still something left in the tank, that’s for sure. Hopefully he has a few more afternoons like that one left.
