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 Colts with little resistance in Week 9, 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 9:
5. TE Mark Andrews
Yes, he had a largely quiet day. But so did the rest of the offense. But his block on Lamar Jackson’s TD run was so amazing that it warrants attention.
4. QB Lamar Jackson
He was terrible in the first half. Thankfully they play two.
3. S Chuck Clark
Not only did he have the touchdown but he also recovered the fumble after the Marcus Peters “interception.” We’ll get back to that.
2. OC Greg Roman
Sure, you were ready to fire him at halftime. But the thing is that when someone makes adjustments, they deserve credit. Greg Roman deserves credit.
1. CB Marcus Peters (two pats)
Look, none of us really think the interception was actually an interception. But it says it happened in the scoresheet and so in judging the game, we recognize it.
Kyle’s Pats on the Ass, Week 9:
5. Orlando Brown
You didn’t hear his name called much at all during the game, but we always say that’s a good thing for an offensive lineman. Further research reveals a creative utilization on both sides of the line, an interesting wrinkle to an already impressive performance.
4. Chuck Clark
The fumble return was pretty damn entertaining. He also recovered the Peters forced fumble. The defense played great in this game, and he is the leader.
3. Matt Judon
I thought this was Judon’s best game of the season. While he didn’t jump off the stat sheet, he (and Ngakoue) generated pressure in key third (and fourth) down scenarios.
2. Lamar Jackson
While the numbers aren’t eye-popping, his second-half efficiency was. More importantly, there weren’t costly mistakes.
1. Marcus Peters
Weird game. Weird “interception.” All things considered, he still made the plays. It was also good to see him defend Lamar on the late hit, though we don’t necessarily want him getting in trouble for leaving the sideline…
