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 were dominated by the Bengals in a statement game by Cincinnati, and as a result, we have some Helmet Slaps to hand out.

They will count down in sequential order before we name the ultimate prize — Two Slaps to the Helmet.  That one player who one single Slap just wouldn’t sit right.

Without further ado:

Glenn’s Slaps to the Helmet, Week 7:

5. S DeShon Elliott

I think you can make an argument for a ton of guys when it comes to the tackling issues yesterday. I’m choosing Elliott but I’d accept an awful lot of names here. 

4. OT Alejandro Villanueva

Similarly, there are a few other names from the Offensive Line that could make the list but this was probably Villanueva’s roughest day since being moved to left tackle. 

3. QB Lamar Jackson

His throws were off the mark early, he didn’t want to run until after they fell behind, the timeout was unforgivable and there seemed to be times where he was trying to hard to be the hero instead of simply taking what was there or throwing the ball away. He also carries the burden of significant expectations. 

2. Head Coach John Harbaugh

The decision to punt was puzzling at best. Perhaps the timeout wasn’t his fault at all and was just a total brain fart from Jackson. But he also seemed to be overly aggressive late because of earlier decisions and the second half challenge is inexcusable. Plus, y’know, they really didn’t seem all that ready to go yesterday. 

1. CB Marlon Humphrey (two slaps)

Speaking of high standards, Marlon Humphrey is a really good football player. But he sure as hell wasn’t really good yesterday.

Paul Valle’s Slaps to the Helmet, Week 7:

5. Brandon Williams

I suppose he thought it was a playaction pass, but Williams let Joe Mixon run right by him in the backfield on his game-icing TD run in the 4th quarter as Williams inexplicably changed directions and moved towards the QB while the ball carrier went right by him

4. Odafe Oweh

We never heard his name on Sunday, and that’s a problem for somebody who has been a difference maker at times this season. The only time I saw Oweh was on a blow to Burrow’s head that didn’t get called

3. Le’Veon Bell

Bell had no burst, no acceleration, nothing. Six touches, four yards. Some of that wasn’t his fault. But by and large, he’s done.

2. Ty’son Williams

He already is thought to run timid at times, and he doesn’t block well. On top of that, on a 4th and 15 with the game on the line, he ran out of bounds two yards shy of the first down rather than fight to gain the extra yardage. Sure, it looked like a lost cause, but coaches notice that sort of thing, and he isn’t making a strong case to be part of the offense moving forward.

1. Marlon Humphrey

He had an interception, and Ja’marr Chase acknowledged that he took away all of the over-the-top passes, but we saw far too much of the back of Marlon’s jersey. He got cooked on Sunday.
