Yo, what's up, guys? Joe knew Bo here.
So sorry I'm a little late on the pregame stream.
As you can see, I am probably a little bit sweaty.
It's not because I'm a larger man.
I mean, that's probably part of the reason, but it's also because it's super hot outside and I just got back from the gym.
So, you know, this just is what it is.
My face is gonna be all oily for the stream.
Sorry about that. But that's just how it is.
So there is some stuff going on.
There's a lot to talk about before the game starts.
Let me just go ahead and pull it up here before we really dive deep into it.
Because for those that don't know, Lamar is not gonna be playing tonight or today.
Well, tonight for you guys today for me? Um, I guess that according to Jeff Zerby IQ, who is the resident, um, Ravens reporter for on Twitter, he said that Lamar is not out there.
He's not in his, uh, he's not out there practicing with the with the quarterback soap that goes to show us that he is This is not at all what I wanted.
What is this? A Bengals Giants game? That's not what I'm trying to watch.
Um, anyway, so, yeah, apparently, um, Lamar's not playing tonight, So let me just tell you.
I think I know people are gonna be upset about it, but I think it's a good approaching decision.
Let me tell you why.
Because so if you guys have been watching the pod cat, if you watch the podcast yesterday live or if you've been watching my just my thoughts on the gin jj, um, these past couple days, I thought that Lamar was gonna get terrorized by the Eagles defensive line.
So I'm actually I'm happy that, um that John is is opting to keep Lamar out of this game.
So And I know people are upset, so but it's all good.
Um, what's up, Cory? What's up? Craving some rave in.
Apparently, Sam Cooke was thrown some balls in the pre Jacobo got.
Imagine if we have to see Sam cooks that, but have been there because apparently trace McSorley shattered to trace man.
He's gonna get the starting job.
I feel bad for the kid man, I really do feel bad for the kid because that means that's oh, boy, he is gonna get He's gonna get pressured up the ass today, man.
Uh, Ronnie Stanley apparently isn't playing Germaine Aluminum or isn't gonna be playing younger.
We already know Young is not gonna be playing.
So it looks like the starting offensive line is probably gonna be Senate.
I would imagine Bozeman would be taken the left guard rolls center score, of course.
James Hurst and then o b J Orlando Brown Jr.
Um and we're going up against the eagle starters on the defensive line.
So that's not gonna be fun.
It's not gonna be fun.
I feel really bad for Trace.
I really, really feel that for Trace.
He's gonna get just Oh, my God, it's gonna be bad.
Lamar's not playing. Yeah, he's not playing tonight.
Apparently, according to Jeff Zrebiec, if you follow him on Twitter.
Yeah, he's just not gonna be playing tonight.
I guess that, uh, like I mentioned earlier, Harp's felt like he's seen enough from Lamar this preseason.
And I guess that's it.
I guess that's it So crazy crazy that he's not gonna be playing because the week three preseason game is usually the dress rehearsal game, as they call it, Cheers sipping on some blue moon, not sponsored.
Although if I would love to be sponsored by Blue Moon because I This is my game day drink men either this or shocked up.
But anyway, Hollywood is playing, so that's something to look forward to.
Is that confirmed? Because I did see Jeff also tweeted out that Hollywood has been out there with pads and he's practicing and everything, but I don't know if it's confirmed yet that he's actually gonna be playing.
You know, that's about time that he gets some some reps out there.
Let him actually get in an actual game situation.
And, you know, maybe him and Trace can actually connect deep a couple times, once or twice.
Maybe we'll see.
But, yeah, this game, as I told you guys before, I'm pretty sure our winning streak in the preseason is gonna be done.
It's gonna be over, Um, not because I think we're a bad team, but because I think the Eagles actually, I've always talked about out depth thing.
The other team and I don't I just don't think that we can out depth the Eagles here.
I think they're one of the few teams in the NFL that can actually match us for having depth on their team.
So it's It's gonna be tough, man.
And especially since we don't really have many starters playing, uh, it's gonna be a test. But I'm glad.
I'm glad that the younger guys we're going to get their chance to shine.
This is the game to really show what they got.
This is, um, you know, this is it.
And I'm not sure who's gonna be playing on the Eagle side.
I don't know if once and all of them are gonna be playing, But if they do great, because then that's even better.
It's gonna be a bigger test for us.
So I'm excited, man.
Um, I know people who have said that John's keeping a lot of lot of the starter's out, but that's just how it is, man, Would you rather just go out there preseason game and risk injury to your starters on some of the guys already shaken up, or would you rather just keep him out and just let her let her assets get blasted.
That's really all it is.
Just just allow the fastest again blasted man.
Um, but I think we'll put up a fight.
I don't think it's gonna be like a blood or anything, but I think I do think we're gonna lose this game.
So, um, Jeff said James Hurst is starting at left tackle.
Let's just hope that he doesn't freak in causing a c l tear on Trace McSorley because you know, as he does as Jane Worst, he's not James Hirsen Maury's Jane.
Worst as Jane. Worse does.
He likes to, ah, injure quarterbacks.
And, uh, hopefully he doesn't do that today to trace because it's gonna be tough, Man, it's gonna be tough going up against the Eagles.
Do you like, like I said, God, and it sucks that our starters, they're gonna be out.
But here we go, Trace. It's time.
And I think that they were saying that Lamar has really showed enough in the joint practices.
He showed enough during the preseason, so I would imagine they're going to just keep him out this game and next week as well for a preseason week for and just let him, you know, get ready for week one against the Dolphins.
So it is what it is.
I'm excited about it.
I'm happy about it.
Um, you know, it's all good.
But anyway, I'm trying to see if I can find a reliable stream, because, yeah, they totally linked to the wrong game.
Here, let me see.
Okay, We might have to use this one, because the one that I usually use Buff Stream is actually, um, it's showing that a wrong is showing the wrong game.
That sucks, because the two reliable websites I go to from reddit dot com slash nfl streams or a slash far slash NFL streams top streams and, um, up streams.
And neither of them are really reliable right now. That's a shame.
So hopefully I can find a good stream to watch the game, because if not, I'm not gonna be able to watch it with this, so that's a shame.
But anyway, so, um, I'm not sure who is slated to play tonight.
That's That's something I gotta look out for if far secondaries out there.
If Earl Thomas, Marlon Humphrey.
And all of them are out there.
We're gonna be tested against Alshon.
Jeffery, maybe if you does play again, I just I have no idea.
It was gonna be playing today on the legal side.
So it's just this curious.
You're curious or man, I broke down and just got game passed.
This year, I had game passes.
Well, but the thing is, um, I don't think they show the live games unless unless I'm tripping.
And I just never figured that out.
I think they only show replace.
So I mean, it's still good because you can watch a replay of any game that you want, but I'm not sure if they show live games.
Maybe on tripping, though I might be wrong, but they showed, like preseason.
Okay, there you go.
So, I mean, it's it's not bad.
I think it's worth it just cause, especially like if you want to look at coach's film, if you're into that.
I used to be into that.
I used to like analyzing games, even though I'm not very good at it, because I just I'm not a coach or anything, but, um, I did like having the coaches film to be able to just analyze it a little bit, Um, and you can watch replays.
It's pretty cool.
It's a pretty cool thing.
So, but aside from that, I think really the only reliable way to watch games out of market.
If I wanna watch Ravens games, I usually just either stream it or I just go to the bar or if I'm lucky, they're they're showing it on prime time.
Um, but I think the only reliable way is Sunday ticket.
So and that's like 100 bucks, which I mean, you know, maybe I'll have the extra money to buy that, but I don't know.
I have to see, because I I try.
I'm pretty bad with money.
I gotta be honest with you guys.
So I got I try to be, you know, I try to not spend so much because I could be bad with money.
It's one of my one of my biggest, uh, one of my biggest issues as a human being.
But anywhere it helps the post game for the pod. There you go.
So you know, you you you do your podcast, craven.
So you know you want to watch some of those? Some of those game replace for sure.
But anyway, uh, I'm trying to find a reliable stream, man. This sucks.
Hopefully, I can find one, because if not, it's gonna be It's gonna be a problem.
You see? You see if this works, okay, I think this one might work.
So you guys check this link out if you need a stream.
I mean, I know most of you live in Baltimore, so you probably don't need a stream.
But if you need one, I'll just go ahead and posted here in the chat.
So far, it looks like it's working pretty well anyway, so let me go through Twitter really quick so I can give you guys updates on who's playing, at least from what I see.
Um, and it looks like Hollywood Brown is gonna be playing, and Earl Thomas is gonna be playing cool.
So okay, here's the ravens that Jeff is reporting that he didn't see in warm ups for the offense.
Of course, we know he's not gonna be playing rg three.
I think everybody knew that he's not gonna be playing Mark Ingram.
So is it just gonna be Justice Hill just the entire game? That be interesting? Willie Snead, Seth Roberts, Marshal Yanda, Ronnie Stanley, a women or Brandon? Kristy Lius and Greg said Not so, My God, there's a lot of players that seems like they're not gonna be playing.
Um, so that's crazy.
I wonder what we're gonna do with running backs, though.
Because if you just put justice still out there the entire game, Well, I guess you do have, like, the Lance Turner and Tyler Urban.
So Yeah, I guess he's not gonna play the entire game.
I would like to see him start, though. That's for sure.
Um, we'll see if the streams air running off game passer probably won't show up till the game starts.
So you know this book craving and men can you play offensive line? Fuck it, man, we need we need something.
Let me go through Jeff's Twitter really quick, so I can really Okay, here's the defense.
The players that aren't cracked or that are warming up.
Jalen Ferguson, which is a little bit questionable, puzzling to me at least, um, Chris board, I guess, isn't playing well.
We had expected that cause he's been he's been shaken up Brandon Williams as to be expected.
That's that's not a good sign.
I don't think that's a good sign that you're old.
Willis isn't gonna be playing today.
I think, unfortunately, that means that he might not even make the team.
That's a shame, because I was really hyped up the Gerald Willis man.
I really thought he was gonna show out this preseason.
I thought he was gonna make a name for himself.
I hope that, you know, that's a shame.
That's a real shame, anyway.
Save on young Iman Marshall.
Um, so it looks like Humphrey Thomas, Jimmy Smith and Car World dressed, but it doesn't mean they're gonna play.
So that's that's crazy, man.
That's it's It's because you expect Week three of the preseason like I mentioned earlier to be the dress rehearsal game.
So this is where you're like, OK, let's put all the starters out there.
Let's see what we got.
But no, it seems like we're actually gonna be keeping a lot of players out, and it seems like more teams or starting to do this nowadays.
So I think I saw earlier that the Packers are actually planning on keeping their starters out as well.
So it seems like NFL coaches are just trying to be a little bit more careful.
They don't want it.
They don't want injuries.
Ah, little more safe.
But that's interesting, man.
That's definitely interesting.
Preseason just ain't the same shadow to you A J Thank you for coming along, man.
Yes, that's crazy.
So okay, here's the starting offensive line in warm ups for the Ravens.
Worst at left tackle, like I mentioned earlier.
Just please, just please don't tear.
Trace McSorley is a c l. Jane.
Just don't do it.
Just just don't fall back like Come on, bro. Don't get pancakes.
You're supposed to be doing the pancaking, and instead you're getting ran over anyway.
Bradley, Bozeman and left guard.
To be expected, Matt Skirt, Center Ben Powers that regard OK.
And Zeus Junior at right tackle.
That's very interesting.
So I'm glad to see Ben Powers taking the starting role.
Um, hopefully, he looks good because, like I said, this old line is gonna need to just play out of their minds tonight because this dealing is not gonna be easy for us.
Um, marquees Brown and Miles Boykin are lined up.
It's starting ride receivers.
That's very interesting.
Okay, so hopefully they do Both of them get some playing time.
I hope Miles Boykin gets a lot of playing time.
Hollywood, um, if he does play tonight, I don't think he'll be on the field for a long time.
I think he'll just be there for, you know, maybe 10 snaps at the most.
I think that was the number that Sonny put out there.
So you know Ronnie Stanley and Jermaine Aluminum or are not there? Jalen Ferguson, like I mentioned, isn't gonna be playing Chris board as well.
So let me see what else we got.
So it looks like we're gonna be seeing a lot of trace McSorley and a lot of Joe Callaghan.
Um, and aside from that, it looks like everybody else is slated to play.
So what I'm gonna be looking for today, guys, is how our pass rushers do.
Because if the offensive line for the Eagles are their starters, then we could potentially struggle.
We're probably not going to get pressure on wins if you place so hopefully, hopefully they do start their starting tackles.
I don't know if I doubt Jason Peters will play because you know he's a veteran.
He doesn't want to play in the preseason lane.
I don't know, I'm not sure.
But either way, it's gonna be a big test for Jude on.
We've got to see if he's the truth like he's shown these past two weeks.
He's looked good in preseason, but we got to see.
We got to see that you're ready to take the leadership role Drood on.
You want to be that main pass rusher? Let's see that.
And then Bowser and Williams.
I want to see more from them.
This has to be their game men.
You only have two more weeks to really show us something.
This I feel like the other side of the pass rushers.
Aside from Judah, it's still up for grabs.
No one to me has really stepped out like no one has really put themselves in front of the pack, at least for me.
I know Bowser has had some flashes.
Williams's looked pretty good aside every now and again, but Ferguson had a pretty good game Week one.
But it looks like that's pretty much all he's gonna do this preseason, and Shane Ray hasn't done anything.
I know that he was really hyped up amongst Ravens fans, including my buddy Sonny and coach Evans.
He really hasn't shown much.
Um, aside from that, nobody else has really stepped up.
Jude on has only been has been the only really viable option, so that's a shame.
I will make FIA's well.
But I mean, we expected that he's a veteran, so I don't know.
It's We got to see men.
We got to see what's who.
That's the pass rush.
We're gonna I'm gonna be looking out for the linebackers.
I want to see more of a lakha.
Hopefully, he gets a lot of playing time because I really liked the kid.
Um Kenny Young, Of course, Peanut.
I'm sure they're gonna get some playing time.
See how we perform against? They're really good receivers.
Nickel, nickel corner roll.
That's something that we definitely gotta be looking out for.
Because with Tavon is injury.
Who's gonna step up? Is it gonna be Cyrus Jones? Is it gonna be Maurice Candy? Is it gonna be Anthony a Brit like they were talking about the other day? Is there gonna be to Sean Elliott? That was another name that somebody threw out.
Um, we need someone to step up.
We need someone to step up at the nickel because without Tavon, it's a big loss.
It's a really big loss.
Um, aside from that D line, you know, maybe you will see more of Patrick or car just absolutely destroying the offensive. Linus.
He has been He's been playing really well, shot up to Patrick Ricard, man, because he was one of the players that I just did not think was gonna make the team this year.
But with the way he's been playing, it's gonna be hard.
Thio cut him so, and the way he's so versatile is a fullback and is a defensive tackle, it's It's gonna be tough to keep him off the roster, So I think we might end up keeping him for sure.
Aside from that, Chris Wormley has had some pretty decent games.
Um, it's really a big shame that Gerald Willis isn't playing, man, that's just so disappointing.
That's just so disappointing to hear.
Uh, aside from that, um, offense the offensive line.
I talked a lot about that.
The running backs.
Justice Hill, Tyler, Ervin, The Lance Turner.
Let's see how they do today.
Um, wide receivers marquees, brown Miles Boykin.
See how many snaps they get.
Hopefully, they just keep feeding the bolts of them tight ends.
We haven't seen much from the tight ends, and I think it's because we're not really showing much with them because they're gonna be probably one of the main total points of our offense.
So we don't want to show too much from them.
Um, you think Lamar is sitting this one out because they're starting offense isn't out there.
I think that's a That's a big reason.
I think that, um, I think the fact that we have some injuries on the offensive line is a big reason why John Harbaugh decided to keep Lamar out of the game.
But also, you know, it's probably just because he's impressed him enough like he showed him enough.
I think he had two good preseason games.
Um, he had a good, good games.
He had a good joint practice against the Eagles.
So to me, that's telling me you know what, Lamar? You've shown me enough.
Just stay healthy.
Get ready for the dolphin scheme.
So the sign from that guy's, um Am I missing anybody? I don't think so.
So Okay, guys, I think I'm gonna go ahead and shut down the stream as the game is about to start in just under two minutes.
Hopefully the stream that I do have.
Yeah, it looks like it's gonna work.
So for those that need a stream, let me go ahead and post it once again in the chat.
And there it is.
So All right, guys, Thank you all so much for joining my stream.
The game's about to start, so catch me on here once again.
After the game is over, I'm gonna be doing a postgame stream.
Lets you know my thoughts on the game.
Some of the players that I saw, how they performed all of that.
You guys already know what's up.
Hopefully you guys have a few beers with me, just like I am.
And, uh, I'll see you guys then.
So thank you so much for joining.
And I'll see you after the game.
Piece out, guys.
