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.
The Ravens managed to pull out a victory on the road against the Bears despite not having Lamar Jackson, Marquise Brown, and Anthony Averett, so Glenn and Paul have some Pats on the Ass 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 slap just wouldn’t isn’t enough.
Without further ado:
Glenn’s Pats on the Ass:
5. K Justin Tucker
Field conditions were brutal, you may be aware that Chicago is known as “The Windy City.” These were not “gimme” kicks by any stretch of the imagination.
4. LB Patrick Queen
Not only is he back up to having played 75% of the team’s defensive snaps, he was all over the field. He’s looked better of late as a whole and honestly played well yesterday.
3. TE Mark Andrews
He was of course the most reliable option for Huntley all day, which makes sense all things considered. The extension he made to catch the ball that Huntley overthrew to the left was phenomenal.
2. LB Tyus Bowser
Obviously the best player on the defensive side of the ball, probably the best player on the field. Come see him tomorrow night at Alonso’s for “The Tyus Bowser Show” presented by PressBox, Great 8’s Memorabilia, Window Depot Baltimore, Duffy’s Garage in Baldwin and MyBookie.
1. QB Tyler Huntley (two pats)
Was he brilliant? No…not brilliant. But did he play as well as anyone could have reasonably expected and am I willing to grade him on such a curve? Yep. Hell of an effort.
Paul Valle’s Pats on the Ass
5. Marlon Humphrey
The Ravens needed a big game out of him, and they got it. He was lockdown
4. Justin Tucker
Old reliable was just that. Reliable. Three FGs and an extra point. The Bears missed a FG and it was the difference in the game.
3. Mark Andrews
He seemed to be the only guy Huntley was comfortable throwing to, and he showed up in a big way.
2. Tyler Huntley
He wasn’t spectacular, but he didn’t need to be. He did exactly what the Ravens asked him to do, and on that final possession he was poised and led a GW TD drive
1. Tyus Bowser (Two Pats)
Two sacks, a forced fumble, and a tackle for a loss. He was a menace and an enforcer
