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 Titans in the first round of the playoffs, 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, Super Wild Card Round:
5. TE Mark Andrews
His inclusion is all about one play, that just so happened to be the single biggest of the game (and came after we worried that some of his past playoff issues had returned. The final play of the first quarter-he stayed alive and made himself available as Lamar Jackson rolled out to his right. It absolutely changed the course of the game.
4. WR Marquise “Hollywood” Brown
What a long, strange trip it’s been.
3. QB Lamar Jackson
If it weren’t for the pick, he’d be number one.
2. DL Derek Wolfe
Just dominant. Absolutely outstanding.
1. EDGE Pernell McPhee (two pats)
Kyle’s Pats on the Ass, Super Wild Card Round:
5. Pat Ricard
An unsung hero for this offense, he has not been featured heavily in the passing game, and it has been a criticism of their augmented three-TE sets. However, he demonstrated his versatility on full display during that touchdown drive in the third quarter.
4. Pernell McPhee
Was flat out dominant against the run and showed that he still is every bit as powerful as he once was.
3. Hollywood Brown
Perhaps his best overall game as a Raven, he most notably ran and fought for yards after his catches on nearly every reception.
2. Derek Wolfe
His job stopping the run and rushing the passer was paramount to yesterday’s success. He saved a touchdown when he tackled Derrick Henry from behind on that 8-yard gain, the longest of the day for Henry.
1. Lamar Jackson
The way he responded from the early interception was tremendous. The run was what makes him so special. He was everything the Ravens needed him to be.
