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 came up short in their loss to the Browns in Cleveland this week, so Glenn and Paul have some Slaps to the Helmet 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 slap just wouldn’t isn’t enough.
Without further ado:
Glenn’s Slaps to the Helmet:
5. DB Brandon Stephens
He’s a young player but you HAVE to make that interception. HAVE to.
4. CB Tavon Young
Jarvis Landry is a tough matchup and the day was difficult for everyone. But Young is the veteran, experienced player in the group and the guy they most need to step up right now.
3. QB Tyler Huntley
On the whole, Tyler Huntley is vastly outperforming expectations. But he’s the quarterback that was playing. And the two fumbles were a direct swing of AT LEAST 10 points. That’s disastrous. There are a lot of context issues here, but we have to acknowledge all of it.
2. OT Tyre Phillips
I understand Myles Garrett has made a lot of players look bad. But I only do Slaps for one particular team and Tyre Phillips was the guy playing for the team that I do Slaps for.
1. OT Alejandro Villanueva (two slaps)
If only there was any way for us to see this coming.
Paul Valle’s Slaps to the Helmet
5. Brandon Stephens
The ball hit him in the hands/chest twice on the same play and he couldn’t make something happen.
4. Tyre Phillips
He got beat badly all day, and the strip sack returned for a TD was on him and was the difference in the game
3. Tayvon Young
He just hasn’t been good this season, and he looked awful on that Landry TD
2. Patrick Queen
Was he even on the field? The only time I remember seeing him was arguing with a ref that a pass was uncatchable on a DPI. 2 tackles. Thats the extent of his stat sheet.
1. Alejandro Villanueva (2 Slaps)
I am so done with this man, and that is coming from an Orioles fan who has yet to give up.
