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 beat the Jaguars in convincing fashion in Week 15, 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 15:
5. Offensive Lineman Tyre Phillips
Here’s the problem. There are SOOOOO many options from yesterday’s game. I’m not including Gus Edwards, J.K. Dobbins, Mark Andrews, Miles Boykin, Patrick Queen, etc. But the offensive line played really well and Tyre Phillips deserves some love for one of my favorite plays of the NFL season. So he’s on the list.
4. Linebacker Matt Judon
I know there are other options who had big games. But there was only one point in the game where anything was in doubt-and that was right after the interception.
3. Wide Receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown
Hopefully what happened in Cleveland will prove to be the turning point for his season if not his entire career.
2. Linebacker Yannick Ngakoue
Boy was he dominant. May there be much more of that to come.
1. Quarterback Lamar Jackson (two pats)
He wasn’t perfect but he was damn good.
Kyle’s Pats on the Ass, Week 15:
5. Justin Madubuike
This was an encouraging performance from a player who was expected to contribute perhaps a bit earlier this year. Even still, his work against the run in place of Calais Campbell and his ability to rush the quarterback proved very useful.
4. Matt Judon
His safety was one of the few plays in this game that could be argued to be pivotal toward the outcome. After that, the Ravens never feared for the outcome once.
3. Lamar Jackson
It’s a funny bit. He threw the ball as well as he did in this game as he has all year (absent the first throw, which was awful). Yet, we don’t really want him throwing as much when there is space to run, which, at times, there was. So, it’s weird.
2. Hollywood Brown
After a disappointing stretch, he has managed to string together consecutive encouraging performances. While he is not a go-to receiver, he is still more than capable of being an impactful one.
1. Mark Andrews
It was good to see him back out there making big catches. This felt like the first game in a while where he and Lamar were really clicking.
