coming at you live from the West Wing, Ladies and gentlemen, thank you so much for joining me for the n f podcast Live today we give my eye or I'm going to give my state of the Ravens address.
Think of me as, like Ulysses s Grant at Gettysburg.
Now, that's probably just totally incorrect.
Was it Abraham Lincoln, bro? History was not my strong subject.
As you can probably tell, I just It just was so boring to me.
I'm sorry, U s history.
I like world history.
That was a little more entertaining for me, but for some reason, U S history is not my thing, man.
It just didn't interest me that much.
Anyway, I'm going off on a tangent.
So State of the Ravens were talking about that today.
Obviously, men, we already know what's going on.
The game has been postponed once again.
First of all, this game against this Pittsburgh Steelers was supposed to be taking place on Thanksgiving night.
It was a Thanksgiving night primetime game, right? And then, you know, the covert stuff happened, and then we had to get it postponed to Sunday morning or Sunday morning for me Sunday afternoon for you guys.
And then it had to get postponed again to Tuesday.
And now we just learned right now, pretty recently that is going to be postponed again for Wednesday.
So, Matt, it's it's just crazy.
So we're gonna talk about that.
We're going to get into that.
This is gonna be more of a relaxed type of stream.
I'm gonna be answering a lot more questions than I usually do, because, to be quite honest with you, there's not a lot to talk about aside from, You know what's going on with all the tough with all the covert stuff and all the postponements and stuff.
But let's get in the chat.
Hopefully, my Internet is actually working, man, because it zbinden appointing for me.
It's been disappointing for me lately.
Shout out to my guy in raven vids in the House team Keep it clean.
Shout out to you. All right, there.
We got my guy, Matt.
We got venomous Rave in.
We got Lawrence, and we got the running bull.
Thank you guys so much for being a part of this man.
I appreciate you so before we get started on today's podcast, Fellas.
Time to mention the members that we got that have joined the ball so hard.
University, Thank you for being members of the Ravens.
We got my guy, Justin Parnell.
We got Anthony Valdez.
We got and we Tuck.
We got Marco Reyes sl Ford 80 Ken Dog BT Comedy Darrell West Matt Magnin, Johore Let Kowski and the Living Dummy Thank you guys so much for being members of the channel as it really helps me out.
And it shows me that you appreciate what I do here, which is just kind of talk about the Ravens.
I mean, what else do I do here? I don't know.
I try to make you guys laugh if I can, if possible, but a anyway.
So first things first, guys, before we get into today's news, I do want to talk about some perks that I'm going to start giving some of these members, like I just mentioned, shout out to all you guys.
I think we have about 11 members of the ball so hard university currently.
So you guys see how I usually dio the Ravens therapy sessions right I bring on guys that also have their own channels that have their own podcasts.
And the reason for that is if you guys have been watching the podcast for a while.
I was bringing on you guys, you know, audience members.
It was just pretty much a free for all.
Anybody that wanted to come on could come on the show, but we had some some some unfortunate things happen where? You know, if you guys remember, we did have somebody that his parents were into, uh, weren't too fond of him talking about the Ravens because he happened to work for the Ravens.
I don't know if you guys remember that a lot old school new beau fence.
Remember that the old school Nubes will remember that stream.
It went down in history, but I'm bringing that back.
But the way that I'm going to be doing it is I'm gonna be starting to bring.
I'm gonna start to bring members on to the podcast.
Alright? It's basically, you know, like a radio show.
They have people call in and ask questions.
That's kind of the format that I'm thinking about.
What I'm gonna be doing is I'm gonna be doing member posts only from here on out.
And I'm gonna be putting basically the stream yard the thing right here that you guys can join the stream.
You can ask a question or two, and then I'll have you on your way.
So I think that it's a way to get you guys to, you know, wanna become members.
I'm going to start doing that very soon.
I'm thinking maybe rolling it out here on Thursday, maybe Wednesday.
I don't know, because we're probably gonna have to have another Ravens therapy session.
At least that's what I'm assuming.
Because I mean pretty much half our team is on the covert list right now, So let's be honest here.
I don't I just don't feel too confident going against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
So, um but yeah, man.
So look out for that.
I'm basically thinking that we are going to have you guys if you remember.
If you guys join the channel, if you don't know how there should be a little button right next to where it says Subscribe.
If you're watching on desktop.
If not, if you go into the description box below where you feel little click the little arrow next to the title.
There's a little link that says Become a true Nube.
So if you click that link where it says become a true Nube, then you will actually become a member.
And I am gonna be starting to bring some members onto the show so you guys can feel free to ask questions one or two questions.
And depending on how many people there are, maybe I'll let you guys stay on for a little bit longer.
So I think that this gives you a reason to become a member of the channel.
So I hope you guys like that idea.
We'll see how it goes.
Hopefully, we don't get another, uh, another drummer shy moment there.
So Okay, let's talk about this thing, man.
Let me let me get in the chat real quick before we get started to see what's going on.
See what the Ravens flock is feeling.
So, um, we got my guy.
We got rave in pride.
Shadow to you we got I am infinite.
We got the one we got spongy, kid.
We got Marco Reyes shadow to you, my man.
Thank you for being a member.
Um, Turtle, Thank you for that.
And Kate and Miller shadow to you, Zach Schubert.
Shout out to you guys. Realistic one.
I like that name.
We got azo bands.
We got Walter Martinez.
We got It's a pretty full house today, man.
Don't forget to smash that like button.
I appreciate you guys being here.
So state of the Ravens, right? Six and four were currently six and four.
A lot of question marks.
Especially now with this just this whole outbreak that the team has been having to deal with.
It's so painful.
It's so painful.
Right? So let's talk about this, all right? I actually pulled up the entire full covert list.
All the guys that have been put on the on the cove in 19 reserve list or whatever you wanna call it.
And starting on Monday, let me.
Actually, you know what? Let me actually bring this up for you guys so you can see what I'm reading here.
Hold on a second.
Might as well, because I don't have anything else.
Plan to show you, so might as well show you this.
So Monday we had Mark Ingram, J.
Dobbins and Brandon Williams placed on the Cove it list.
And then this thing keeps lagging out, Man.
Hopefully that's my Internet is not letting me down.
So on Monday we had to put both our running backs, Mark Ingram and J. K.
Dobbins, as well as Brandon Williams on the list.
And then on Tuesday, it was Purnell McPhee who says the positive Wednesday we got Kallias Campbell, Patrick Macari and Matt Skara on Wednesday There.
Then, on Thursday, it was Jihad Ward free Hattie, as he says.
Then Friday, of course, we know it was Lamar, then Patrick Ricard than just a meta BK.
Then Morgan Cox.
And then on Saturday, it just keeps getting worse.
As the as the week continues to go on, Jalen Ferguson the pressure daddy shouted to the pressure Daddy, D J.
Fluker will hold in.
Broderick Washington Tavon Young while he was on, I are already but still Khalil Dorsey.
And then on Monday, yesterday or today was it? I guess it was today.
Mark Andrews, Terrell Bonds, Jude On and Willie Snead.
So I mean, I feel like Mark Andrews and those guys in Jude on.
We're probably announced over the weekend, but or on Sunday. Maybe.
And they just weren't put on the list because I thought I heard about it earlier on them today on Ben.
Of course we learned about today.
So, Man, man, I mean, we're just it za dumpster fire.
I mean, I just don't know how else Thio address it.
Man, I don't know how else to call it. It's been bad.
It has been bad.
So we got about I think at this point, it's like, what? Last I checked, it was like 21 people on the covert list.
Now it has to be getting up there.
Um, I it's just rough.
It's it's rough, like, What are you supposed to do? So we have RG three, as we all know, starting at quarterback.
Unfortunately, I know everybody wanted Trace McSorley the goat to be starting at quarterback when Lamar went down.
But it's gonna be RG three on Wednesday, apparently, if the game isn't postponed again, because just think about it.
And it's almost been a week that we were actually supposed to play the Steelers game, and it's just been continue to have t be pushed back and something I want to say about that because I hear a lot of people talking about the Bronco situation right that why can't the NFL do the same thing that they're doing for the Ravens with the Broncos? To me? In my opinion now, a lot of people have their own opinion on this.
Feel free to leave yours in the chat.
But in my opinion, the situations are not comparable, right, because the Baltimore Ravens are dealing with a full on outbreak, and it's just we haven't had any negative tests throughout this week at all, right? So but the Broncos, on the other hand, just there. Three quarterbacks.
It seems like that they were at risk or one of them tested positive.
I'm not sure exactly what happened there, so they didn't have a quarterback.
But it's not like this.
It was just spreading through the rest of the team, and it's not like they were having positive tests every single day, right, so that's the reason that we're getting pushed back because we're having positive test, literally every single day.
We have not had a single day with a negative test, so that's the difference to me between the Ravens and the Broncos game.
Um, you know, it sucks for the Broncos because they didn't have a quarterback.
They were forced to put a practice squad wide receiver as a quarterback.
Their candle Hinton.
And, you know, he wasn't that good.
But, I mean, what do you expect? You know, you can't really expect him to just come in and be a starting caliber quarterback.
It just doesn't work like that.
So I feel for the Broncos, I do.
But for me, it's just not the same.
I just don't think it's the same situation whatsoever.
I think that is very different.
So, um, that's just how I feel about it again.
You guys let me know in the chat, but yes, so for the Ravens, man, we just We we gotta hope that we could get some negative test here because it's been rough.
I I really don't know what they're going to do if we go in tow Wednesday and it's the same situation.
We don't even know what time we're playing as far as I know right now, So I don't even know if they're gonna practice.
It's just so it's It's a mess Dude, it is a mess and believe if you had asked me at the beginning of the season, like before the season started, do you think that like, if I had to guess a team that would get this huge Covic outbreak and like pretty much get their half their team ruined and just not be able to play, I never would have guessed that it would have been my own team, the Baltimore Ravens.
Why? Because usually, usually the organization is very good, and I thought that they were like, Oh, man, these guys were wearing masks like they're following Protocols are being very safe.
So I thought for sure, man, like I would expect this from a team like the Browns or from the Washington football team or, you know, some of these terrible organizations.
That's what I would expect it from never from the Baltimore Ravens.
Dude never would have.
I have expected this.
A lot of people want to put the blame on Saunders, right, the strength and conditioning coach.
They're kind of saying that he was the start of this whole outbreak and it's very possible to be honest with you, I don't really know um, it kind of makes sense because the strength and conditioning guy, he's probably, you know, after the game, working with every single one, stretching them out, you know, getting very close to them.
So if he wasn't wearing a mask and he just happened to have the covert without knowing it, that could have been the cause, right? So I think that's why everybody's putting the blame on Stephen Saunders.
He's not getting fired.
He just got suspended.
It's been a mess, dude.
It has been just a nab salute.
Straight up Dumpster fire and it's crazy.
Shout out to engraving.
He thinks he's the fall guy. Could be.
I actually posted a meme, and I don't get why people take my memes so seriously, dude, like it's just me joking.
Most of the time, I don't even know what I'm talking about.
I'm just kind of like whatever I think is kind of funny.
I put it out there.
You know, that means the Gordon Ramsay mean where he's like, Oh dear, oh dear, gorgeous.
You know, he's talking to the girl, and then he also and then the next picture is like you you f ing donkey, right? So I put that and then I put as a caption that I'm describing the meme to you rather than showing it to you because that makes it more funny, Right? I said the Ravens flock when they saw that Marlon Humphrey had co vid and I said, Oh dear, oh dear.
Gorgeous that like that's how people reacted.
Whereas you f ing donkey to Stephen Saunders for for spreading the covert, right? I don't know.
I thought it was funny, but at the time I posted it.
Uh, sometimes I make myself laugh, and it's just like some people find it funny.
But some other times they don't.
I don't I really don't know what I'm doing here.
So Ravens says you're not.
You know you're not allowed to joke, man.
You aren't allowed to joke or be happy.
People don't like that.
You're absolutely writing Raven.
I totally forget that every single time I post to mean or I make a joke on Twitter, people are like, What are you saying? That you could make any sit actually, scientifically speaking in reality, like bro, just It's a mean just chill out like stop taking everything so seriously.
But anyway, yeah, um, yeah, it's it's just a mess.
You know, the game is supposed to be played on Wednesday.
At this point, I don't even know if it's gonna be played.
Like, Are we gonna have to forfeit? Are they gonna make a week 18 like there's just so many different things that they could potentially do the NFL here If I had to guess.
I think they're just gonna force it and played on Wednesday because they don't wanna have to push it anymore.
And they definitely don't wanna have a week 18.
So in my mind, I think they're just gonna just kind of dive right through it, just go right through it.
And also, I wanted to say, Man, I find it funny that as soon as the Steelers players started complaining about the Ravens, especially Judy, you guys remember that video I made about juju? Another team can't get their covert situation to get and look what happens.
Look at what happens as soon as you talk ****.
Some of your players go on the covert list, so I just find that funny.
It's just interesting, right? You know, just don't be throwing rocks when you live in a glass house breath.
That's all I'm saying.
But yeah, listen, the Ravens air screwed straight up, at least for right now, if everybody could get healthy like I said by the Cowboys game, we could still potentially win out.
But let's be honest here.
It's gonna be a tough matchup against the Steelers.
The Steelers air undefeated.
They're a great team on.
We're starting RG three a quarterback.
Not to say I don't think we don't have a chance.
I know it sounds stupid and insane because we don't have Mark Andrews.
We don't have Willie Snead.
We don't have our starting centers on.
I say centers because we've been, you know, uh, Matt score A and then Petra Macari even they would play garden stuff.
We don't have d J Fluker pretty much the entire offensive line will hold and even their all out.
Um, you know, we have a skeleton crew, the defensive line, pretty much the entire defensive line is out.
So why do I think that the Ravens still have a chance? I don't know.
Maybe it's because we have Gus Edwards and we have the secondary That's really the only reason.
Like those air the Onley to sparks of hope that I still have, you know, for this season.
Or at least for these next two games until everybody gets healthy.
Those air, literally the Onley to sparks of hope that I have is that, hey, you give Gus Edwards 40 carries against the Steelers.
Maybe we can put a points.
And if Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters and Jimmy Smith step up and the rest of the secondary steps up against those receivers, then you know, I'm just saying it's possible.
But no, but let's be honest here.
We're probably gonna go six and five.
There's no reason that that we should win this game.
And if we do, if we imagine if we beat the Steelers with half of our team on the co vid list, could you imagine I would love that? I would love that.
To be honest with you, I don't even care.
People are People are gonna say RG three is better than Lamar Jackson.
You already know that would happen.
If if that's if we do somehow pull out a win out of our ass, you already know that that's what happened.
But I wouldn't care.
I would just I would just be so happy that we beat the Steelers with RG three and a skeleton crew of a team.
That would just be incredible.
But, I mean, you know, it's just wishful thinking at this point, we're probably gonna get blown out, to be honest.
All right, let's go to the chat here, man. Again.
If you guys want your chats to be seen quicker, super chat is the way to go.
It should be turned on, and it also helps me out.
Helps the channel grow.
I appreciate that.
And if you guys miss the beginning of the podcast, I'm going to be starting to bring members into the podcast to the streams.
So you guys can ask a question or two or just, you know, say something to the Ravens, flock anything that you want to say, anything you want to get out there.
So that's gonna be for members only, fellas.
So if you do wanna be a part of the show starting, I would say, probably on Thursday.
Please make sure you join the membership, get a membership for the channel, enroll yourself into ball so hard, university.
All that good stuff.
And of course, don't forget to smash that like button and subscribe and hit that bell.
Okay, so if you guys want your questions answered immediately and put on the screen, I will, Um, all you have to do is have a super chat.
Put a super chat in there, so all right.
And we got our first one shout out to my guy, Abdul.
He says the Titan stomped up stumps of Rhona dust on our shield.
That might have been what it waas.
You know, the Titans came in and they're like, we have We have Verona contained in this little container, we're gonna spread it all over the field.
That's probably what they were doing, man.
Abdul, I don't even doubt that, honestly, the types would do some crap like that.
They definitely would.
Um, all right, so let's take a look at this. Chatman.
It's It's been rough.
It's been rough.
Um, like I said, the Ravens.
Right now we're a dumpster fire.
You know, it's not pretty at all.
It is not pretty at all.
So let's let's take a look here.
Let's scroll up a little bit here, Jacqueline says.
Juju talk so much trash to the Ravens just to get locked up by Marlowe every time. That's what I'm saying.
That's exactly what I said in my video when I reacted is sweet.
It's like you're talking crap about Oh, the Ravens can't get there's covitz situation together.
But you act like you're going to do anything against the Ravens. Anyway.
Marlon Humphrey locks you up.
You know, you get absolutely shut down by Marlon Humphrey every single time you go up against him.
So I don't even know why you're concerned.
If you're not even going to do anything, you're gonna have, like, one reception for 16 yards. Probably.
Um so let's see what else we got.
These two last weeks have been crazy.
They absolutely have man J E.
T s just and the suffering I feel you man, you know what? In a way, it could be worse, right? We could be Jets fans.
So there's that.
But I mean, the jets, the problem with the Jets, The problem is that they went back to Sam Donald when they should have just stuck with Joe Flat goat, the elite dragon, right But anyway, that's the problem there.
Um, game postponed.
A Wednesday? Yep.
We already mentioned that, uh, why don't we get Ray Lewis to come out of retirement? Hey, man.
That's why I have the jersey right here to try to conjure him up and try toe try to get him to come back and play for the team.
The game is a 3:40 p.m.
Kickoff on Wednesday.
Is that confirmed? Did that just come out? Is that breaking news that I missed? Oh, yeah.
So officially, it is now 3.
That is the kickoff on Wednesday.
So that for me means that it's gonna be a 12.
40 noon since I'm a West Coast Ravens fan on California.
Um, well, there you go.
So, Wednesday at 3.
40 in case you guys were wondering, we'll see how that goes.
Man, Um, that means that I'm gonna have to kind of schedule my work around that I'm gonna have to maybe hit a store in the morning and then hit one after the game.
Uh, if I even want to, because maybe I'll be drunk because of how frustrating it will be.
But to be honest, I'm just expecting a loss anyway.
So why even, you know, there's no reason to stress Raven Pride.
Thank you for the super chat.
My man, he says, could be worse.
Our offense or wait, what could be worse? Our offense or cove in 19 juju needs to eat.
Raven Pride. Thank you for the donation, my man.
I appreciate that.
Um well, our offense was already bad as it waas, right? So, I mean, it's not like the cove.
It is going to really make that much of a difference.
We're probably still gonna be endemic on offense.
Unless we do the right thing and feed Gus Edwards like, 40 carries, which is what I've been clamoring for.
But knowing Greg, Roman, he's gonna he's gonna go past heavy.
Probably he's not gonna run the ball.
Um, you know, you would think that that the game plan would be just toe pound Gus down the field, um or, you know, run gusts up the middle, Theo entire game and then hit with the play action.
And hopefully you can hit guys like I don't know, Hollywood potentially, or I'm sorry, Markey's potentially if he could get open.
Um, it's rough, Dude, it's rough.
I mean, what do you want me to tell you? You know, it's It's not a It's not a good situation of being with the Ravens right now.
The offense was already bad as it waas.
Well, we do have Dez so Dez could be a viable option for RG three men.
He could potentially be, especially because he was showing hard out there, man.
He was like, the one player against the Titans that was actually showing heart.
Um, so let's see what else we got.
Our secondary needs to be shut down.
I absolutely agree, man.
Especially going up against these guys Chase Claypool juju.
Well, Judy is not gonna do anything.
Um, Who else? Deontay Johnson, James Washington.
They got some boys over there men.
But if the secondary steps up and they play to the level that we know that they can, I'm just saying I'm just saying Well, but But the other worry is that we don't have any defensive lineman, right? So I mean, James Connor could have a big day on us because we're just not gonna be able to stop the run.
We already know how how we play with without Brandon Williams.
So yeah, and especially because Kallias Campbell is gonna be there.
Um, so I don't know, maybe James Connor has, like, 200 yards, To be honest with you, even though I don't think he's that good of a running back, I think he's decent.
I just don't think he's like a top tier elite talent.
I think he's a solid runner, but yeah, I mean, if the Steelers air smart, honestly, because we still have our secondary healthy, so that's gonna be the strength of the defense.
They would just run the ball pretty much the entire game.
That's that's really all you have to do against this defensive line because we have nobody right now.
So that's that's what the game plan should be for.
The Steelers don't try to get cute and try to just throw for like, 400 yards with large Benjamin.
That wouldn't be the right idea.
I think if you're the Steelers, you just got to run the ball and pretty much you should have success.
If you could do that, that's that's really all it is.
But I like our chances if for some reason they decided to go pass heavy, which I would think would be foolish.
Um, but, you know, you never know.
Especially with the way that Marcus Peters and Marlon Humphrey played against the Titans.
They'll probably end up beating them anyway, so I don't know.
I'm just not feeling confident at all. Okay.
O Connor is out, okay.
I totally forgot about that, man.
That slipped my mind.
I remember he was one of the players that got tested positive.
You guys all right? Thank you for reminding me. Okay.
So Okay, whatever.
They have the guy McFarland right, they have.
That's his name.
Anthony McFarland. I believe right from Maryland.
So they have him.
They have Benny Snell.
They still have running backs, bro.
You know, they're viable enough that they could still run.
To be honest, man, I think anybody at this point could run on us because we have no defensive line.
We're not gonna be able to set the edge.
Nomad Jude on no jail in Ferguson.
We don't even have any pass rushers.
We have Tyus Bowser and unique and gawk way, I think. And that's it.
They they're not the best of setting the edge.
Well, Bowser isn't too bad at it, but on God, we can do it sometimes.
But he's more of a pass rusher, right? So, yeah, if you're the Steelers, just run the ball.
That's that's really all you gotta do, in my opinion, to beat the Ravens at this point and, um, and try to stop the run.
That's That's really all it is because you can get to RG three, especially with the way the offensive line is right now, with no center, no guards like it's it's gonna be tough.
But we just got it run with Gus and hope that he can carry us to the Promised Land.
So, yeah, but I just don't see a way that we win this game.
Um, but hey, man, I don't know, it's it's not.
It's not too crazy.
That's all I'm saying.
I know it sounds insane.
It sounds stupid, but just look out for that man.
It's Dez Bryant's time, says B G.
I like the positivity men and I got to say I did like what I saw from Dez Bryant.
Oh, and you guys were saying that pressure Daddy is back.
Okay, See you guys already.
You guys are on top of this a lot more than I am.
It's It's my fault because I just like everybody says, You got to do your research before you do your streams.
What do you want me to do? I'm just a Ravens fan.
You know, I'm not really anything else aside from that, So I'm sorry, but hey, that's why have you guys here to keep me, you know, keep me in check.
Keep me in the loop.
So pressure, Daddy apparently is going to be back.
Okay, so hey, that's good to know.
Let me go back to him.
I like what I saw from him against the Titans.
He only got, like, 30 yards, But just that that those few 30 yards was, like, better than pretty much Miles Boykins.
I hate to say it, man, and it sounds rough.
It sounds like I'm being an *******, but let's be honest, Broke.
Dez Bryant was playing with more physicality.
He's playing like Miles Boykin should be playing, you know.
And you could say Miles Boykin is only in the second year, but I just I feel like it's just him is a person that he just doesn't have that dog in him, you know? Um, kind of the same thing with with marquees.
Um, I just don't think they have that dog.
You know, I thought marquees had that dog in him in his rookie season.
But the way that he's been playing this year, e just I just don't think it's there like he had like, he was a little No, I never mind.
I'm not going to say that I was going to say he's a little Chihuahua, but no, I'm not gonna say that, man.
Just forget I ever said that I still said it Anyway.
Listen, it's a tough situation, but yeah, says he played like a dog.
I love to see that we need that aggressive receiver, because that's when we always do our best work when we have that type of receiver on our offense, right? Steve Smith.
Que Anquan Boldin.
When you have those guys that air just aggressive, they go up.
They fight for the ball.
They fight the quarterbacks like they.
They Those are the types of receivers that I think the Ravens need, and especially for Lamar's, is to help him out with the big bodies, Right? So I like what I saw from Dez.
I'm glad that he's officially on the active roster.
I'm still not going to say that he is the savior to this offense because I don't think that's the case.
But I will say that I love that dog mentality.
You know, just it seems like he's playing with heart, you know? So we'll see how it goes, man.
You know it, Z, we'll see what happens there.
So let's see what else we got.
Fluker is Bacca's.
Well, okay, good to know.
So we're actually we're not as decimated as you know.
Originally, we thought we were, as originally we thought we were Smallwood is Connor's call up.
He played with the Eagles last year.
Oh, that does sound.
Is it like Wendell Smallwood or something like that? I have to look it up because that sounds very familiar.
It's not Wendell, is it? Oh, it is Wendell.
Okay, I don't know how I remembered that name.
Okay, so apparently the Steelers have Wendell Smallwood.
I didn't even know that you guys were coming in with all these facts that I don't even know, man, it's crazy.
Usually I'm the one that knows, like, pretty much all the goings on, But it's just been a crazy holiday season, man, It's been a crazy month that has been hard, hard for me to keep up with everything.
So Steelers 11 and Oh, So I guess we're assuming that we're just gonna lose this game, which I think is the right thing to do.
Because like I said, if you go into this game with the mindset that we're gonna lose this game, then we could be pleasantly surprised if we somehow come in and keep it close.
Right? So, um oh, hold on.
Something just broke.
Now cowboys and Ravens could be moving to Tuesday night.
Apparently, is what Adam Schefter just tweeted out, brah.
Okay, well, I think this is crazy, man.
So to breaking news is that came out today during the stream for won.
The game is gonna be played a 3:40 p.
Eastern time on Wednesday.
If it doesn't get postponed again.
And apparently the Cowboys and Ravens game could be played on Tuesday.
So I'm assuming that would be, you know, next Tuesday, obviously.
So Hey, there you go.
That's That's the news, man.
That's the news.
It says Cowboys Ravens now might kick off Tuesday at 8 p.m.
One more scheduling change during a slew of them.
Okay, so we could.
So it looks like we're probably gonna be playing on Wednesday and then we get at least almost a week of resting time to play against the Cowboys and Ravens.
Hopefully, man on to buy that Tuesday.
You know, pretty much everybody that's on the covert list will be healthy because we need to start winning games here.
You know, we like I said, even before all this cove, it came out.
I said, We can still afford to technically dropped, like one game, right? And especially since the Raiders just lost to the Falcons yesterday, shout out to my guy Chen dog.
By the way, I don't even know if he's in here right now.
He's a Raiders fan, but they got destroyed.
Um, so they're six and five, right? now, right? So that helps us out.
We kind of need some help.
But listen, I said we could drop like one more game and still get into the playoffs.
So assuming that we dropped the Steelers game, if everybody's healthy by the Cowboys game, we win that game.
Hopefully, then you only got to play the Browns, which is the last remaining tough game.
But look at how they played against the Jacks, not saying they didn't play well.
But, I mean, you beat them by 2 27 to 25.
Oh, but here's the counter.
Here's the counter.
I can already picture Browns.
Fan. There's no Brown's fence here.
Well, there might be.
I don't know if there's any Brown's fence in the chat, but you know what brownstones will say? Well, they kept it close with the Packers, 24 to 20 so they're a better team than you think.
Okay, fair enough, but also tend to seven to the Texans like I don't know the Browns. They're winning games.
Credit to them, you know that's good for them.
They're eight and three, can't really complain, but there's still a flawed football team, and I think that the Ravens, if fully healthy now let me let me give it the that car. Caveat.
If fully healthy, I think the Ravens can actually beat the Browns.
I'm just saying so, and after that, you have the Giants who are the NFC East leaders.
By the way, you have the Jags and the Bengals very winnable games, so it's very it's, you know, it's bad.
It's been with this covitz stuff.
I still think that we can win out after the Steelers game, right? We could still go 11 and five, and you need to go 11 and five to make it to the playoffs.
In my opinion, unless the Raiders continue to do us a solid and keep losing games, please, or at this point, you know, the Colts and the Titans look like they're gonna make it for sure.
So we really need the Raiders to lose games.
They could help us out, and maybe we have.
You know, we could potentially drop a game.
We could go 10 and six and still make the playoffs.
I don't know, man.
It's it's crazy.
Let me see if there's anything else going on.
Oh, some other breaking news.
Oh, this is great, man.
We're getting a lot of breaking news during the end of Podcasts Live and I love it.
Dobbins and Mark Ingram will now be eligible for Wednesday's game against the Steelers, but a boom Baltimore still will be down.
A dozen players, including quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Thank you for the donation, my man.
I really do appreciate that.
Thank you for the $10 donation, my man.
So Mark Ingram and J.
Dobbins can play on Wednesday.
Okay, Okay, now the one concern I have about that I love that Dobbins is coming back.
I absolutely love it, because if you could remember what they did against the Steelers last time, the combination of Gus and Dobbins they both put up over 100 yards.
But the problem? The problem is the coaching staff, because what do they do in Mark? Ingram is healthy.
Let's let's keep feeding Mark Ingram, even though he's getting tackled behind the line of scrimmage or he's only getting two yards per carry.
Let's continue to feed Mark Ingram.
Why? Because he had big trust and he did all that stuff Listen, I have to say it every time I talk about marking group.
I love the dude.
He is awesome, great personality.
He brought us big trust.
Nobody's ever gonna forget that in the Ravens flock.
He's a great dude, and he's a great locker room leader, but he is not.
He should not be out there on the field. I'm sorry.
He should just not be out there on the field.
K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards are your guys.
They need to be the guys.
So that's my concern.
I'm glad that J.
Dobbins is coming back, and I'm glad that I hope that him and Gus Edwards will be the 12 punch against the Steelers.
Because if they can, we might have a little bit more of a chance to win this game, you know, and I know it sounds crazy because everybody's saying it to Ingram gonna mess it up.
Uh, I know, man, and it's It's not even it's not even anything against Ingram himself.
It's the coaching staff.
It's their fault for putting him in in crucial situations when he should not be the running back on the field.
I'm sorry again I have to say it again because people are going to say that I hate on Ingram.
I'm not hating on him.
I love the dude, great locker room leader, great personality, and he's awesome to have on your team.
But, man, he's just not the same as he was last year.
He's not that workhorse that he was for us last year.
It's clear to everybody that watches the Ravens that J.
Dobbins and Gus Edwards should be the starting running backs.
They should be the 12 punch, right? I think it's clear to everybody watching.
Let's see if there's any other news that came out today.
Um, so, yeah, it looks like that's pretty much it, man.
So it looks like we're still on for Wednesday at 3:40 p.
Gus, Edward, I mean, J K.
Dobbins is back.
You love to see it, so it looks like we're not as decimated as we were originally.
Now we're still gonna be out, Lamar, we're still gonna be out Mark Andrews, and we're still gonna be out.
Willie Snead, right? Is what I'm assuming.
Because they just tested positive recently.
So those air really are three main offensive weapons.
But in a way, if Greg Roman his smarts, which I know it's asking a lot, it's asking a lot for Greg Roman to do the right things to make the right play calls.
But if Rick Greg Roman is smart, he will run 50 times with Gus and J K straight up straight up.
You give 30 carries to Gus and you give 20 carries to J.
Dobbins and let them carry you to the promised land because we were gashing the Steelers on the ground last time that we played them.
And if it wasn't, I say it again.
If it wasn't for Lamar's turnovers, in my opinion, we would have beaten the Steelers at home.
But we didn't because Lamar decided to just throat like three interceptions and fumble it twice, right? So, man there there's there's a path to victory.
There's a path to victory right now.
This just gave me hope, seeing that J.
Dobbins will be back.
There is a path to victory over the Steelers, but I'm still gonna I'm still going to keep my expectations low for Wednesday.
I'm still just gonna assume that the Ravens.
They're gonna lose because I think it's better that way because that way they can surprise you or they can.
You know they can pleasantly surprised you, right? If it's a close game, or maybe if we somehow pull off the upset, I don't know.
And I know if we do believe me, I can already picture it.
I can already picture it.
Oh, um, the Ravens only one, because of all the covert stuff that it kept having to get pushed back, You know, it's the NFL's.
There's gonna be excuses, right? I already know there's something else.
Oh, yes, there is.
Let let's read it straight up.
Another ultimate 2020 note.
The Ravens Steelers game is kicking off Wednesday at 3:40 p.
Because NBC wanted and was committed to broadcasting the 88th Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting ceremony on Wednesday night.
Okay, so that wasn't that important.
But hey, hey, man, I love that we're getting news here on the live on stream.

And I'm going to start bringing people on to the podcast starting on Thursday.
Now I'm gonna get in the chat.
Let's see what's going on.
If you guys have any questions.
If you want your question to be seen quicker, don't forget Super chat is the way to go because I will put it on screen for everybody to see.
And we will answer your question immediately as its asked.
But aside from that, I'm just gonna be picking random chats that I see here and we're going to talk about it.
All right? Uh huh.
If RG three does well, people are gonna hate on Lamar.
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, No for sure, RG three is an okay quarterback and I think you could do it.
And again, that's why I'm saying like, I don't think that this game is especially now with the news that J K.
Dobbins is coming back and some of our players are coming back I like, you know, the chances were slim to none, and now they're you know, they're they're getting a little bit husky.
Er, you know, it's not a slim to none is.
It originally was not saying that our chances are great of beating the Steelers because they're not.
But I'm just saying, you know, RG three, he could do his thing.
He's beating the Steelers before.
Let's not forget.
And I know what Steelers fans they're going to say.
Well, we had duck Hodges starting at quarterback.
Yeah, but you guys needed to make the playoffs, right? I'm not gonna forget that.
And And you know what? I kind of see this as a win win for the Ravens.
****! Either way, I'm sorry.
I know I keep skipping the chat and I just go off on tangents.
That's kind of what I do here.
That's what the whole new beau is about, right? Napster, Thomas. That's what I do.
So if the Steelers sweep us this year, we have an excuse.
All we have to say is, well, RG three was the starting quarterback.
That's the reason that you guys beat us in that second game right, because that's exactly what the Steelers did last year when we swept him.
That's exactly the excuse that they had.
Well, if we had large Benjamin starting, we would have beaten you guys and gotten into the playoffs, right? That's what they said.
So we have an excuse.
Well, you guys beat us because we had RG three starting quarterback.
So it's a win win.
It's a win win, you know, we get Thio diminish the Steelers record on the Steelers winds over us because of that excuse that they use themselves.
So throwing it right back at them.
Um, any more news? Let me check Twitter real quick, just in case.
I am going to get out of here very soon.
Guys, I've got about 15 more minutes. So not too.
Um oh, it's just the Ravens announcing that.
Okay, okay. So Tuesday.
So news from the Baltimore Ravens, we already know the Steelers and Ravens game is gonna be on Wednesday at 3 40 then the Cowboys and Ravens game will be on Tuesday, December 8th at 805 p.
So pretty much a prime time game on Tuesday. Okay.
So there you go.
So for me, that's 5 p.m.
So, Hey, men, You know, I came into here saying that the state of the Ravens is, uh, is a dumpster fire, and we're actually getting out of here with a little bit of positivity.
I don't know what my my voice got so high I went into my falsetto there.
But, hey, you know, no feeling too bad.
That's that's what happens when you come to my streams, man.
Maybe good things start happening.
So maybe we should keep streaming.
Maybe more good news.
Maybe maybe we'll actually get news that Oh, actually, the covert tests were false.
Everything was actually negative.
It was just It was a mistake, right? That would be awesome.
No, but that's not gonna happen, so All right, let's take a look at some of your guys chats.
Uh, start putting your questions again.
If you want to see a quicker put the super chat in there, I'll make sure to answer your question on the spot.
Ravens flock will shock.
That's a good That's a good little thing.
I know you had a California Republic hat.
You live in Cali? Yes, sir.
I am a California Ravens fan coming at you live from the West Wing, baby.
As you already know, that's what I always say.
Um, Hollywood will have to catches for 14 yards.
I'm calling it now.
You're probably not wrong there.
To be honest, I would assume that Dez is going to outperform marquees Brown, which is which is sad to say, but, hey, um, the game should be played week 18.
Ah, lot of people wanted week 18 for me.
It's like if they want to do that, that's fine.
I really don't care.
Um, you know, it's up.
It's up to the organization.
It's up to the NFL.
Whatever they wanna do, however, they want to do it.
But things are looking up, man.
Hopefully we don't get another.
Hopefully, we don't get another, you know, positive Koven test today or tomorrow, because I would just I just want to get this game done and over with, right? I'm just sick and tired of talking about it.
Do you think Lamar is gonna be back against Dallas? I assume he will I assume he will? Um, you know, we're seeing that a bunch of players are already coming back who tested positive.
So or they were high risk.
So it's possible Raiders gave the Ravens a break.
You know, you're absolutely right.
I mentioned that earlier.
That thank you to the Ravens.
I mean, thank you to the Raiders for helping out the Ravens by losing to the Atlanta Falcons.
That that's just beautiful.
So thank you guys. Shout out to my guy, Chen dog.
Um, there was something else who is gonna play full back.
That's a good question.
Because, as we know, Ricard, big part of the offense, great blocker for us.
Big part of the running game he's on the covert list is Well, um e don't know.
I really don't know.
I'm just imagine if the Ravens pull something like this, Imagine if they put Gus Edwards at full back and say, Gus, you're just gonna block today, even though we should ride you and J.
Dobbins to the promised land against the Steelers.
Now, you're gonna be a fullback today.
They could probably pull something like that.
But what if What if they bring in? What was that guy's name? That everybody loved Bronson wreck? Steiner.
The Steiner, bro.
That would be funny.
No, but I just think they'll figure something out.
I'm sure Greg Roman will have to scheme something else up without a full back.
Um, or maybe they'll put they'll put the tight ends that we have. Luke Wilson.
And, uh, whoever else we signed from the practice squad, I forgot his name.
So, um, Hollywood having a break out game? Well, E I mean, you gotta hope that there's gonna gonna be a moment that you're not wrong about that.
Because we've been calling you for a while.
That marquees Brown will have his breakout game this season.
Hasn't happened yet, But let's see Northern Cali in the building.
Okay, shout out to you men.
I'm from Southern Cali, but hey, men, California is a big state.
Hope we can still win games after this and not get messed up by Covic.
Yeah, man, that's that's really That's really the hope.
Um, my team is doing really bad. It's the Cowboys.
Yeah, man, But, hey, you guys are still still in it for the division.
So you never know.
You guys are still fighting, man.
Uh, but yeah, it's It's rough.
I like like I said earlier, because we've had Jets fans in here.
We've had Cowboys fans in here kind of, you know, say, like, Hey, man, it could be worse.
I even talked to a Giants fan who are in the lead for their division now, Um, so it could always be worse, but, you know, it's it's we're still Ravens fans.
We just we don't We don't like we We don't accept failure, right? It's hard for us to accept failure.
Um, okay, we got we got an angry We got an angry boy in the chat.
I actually showed this comic because I want you guys to see this shout out to Shawn Watson.
He is ****ed off.
Let me Let me let me read it in his voice or what? I'm assuming that this is what's his voice when he typed it.
So sick and tired of this **** forfeit.
If you guys can't feel the team, your lack of taking control of your team has now screwed the Steelers and taking from other teams down with you.
Play or forfeit.
Why does Steelers fans want the Ravens to forfeit so bad? Are you scared of losing toe RG three and being the laughing stock of the NFL? Is that what it is? Are you scared of losing the RG three twice in two seasons? Is that what it is? I think that's what it is.
I think that Steelers fans just don't wanna accept that RG three is going to come in and look like 2000.
What was the 2012 RG three? And he's just gonna come in and ball out and absolutely destroyed and passed for four 100 yards on that Steelers secondary.
No, but seriously, man, I'm just playing here.
No, I think the game will be played on Wednesday, all right, and the fact that Steelers players and Steelers fans want the Ravens to forfeit that's just ***** ****, bro.
Straight up, straight up.
That's ***** ****! And it's been 50 minutes in the podcast, so I can actually curse now.
Hopefully straight a bit.
****, that's like we're these all have to be new Steelers fans Air new Steelers, right, because it doesn't make any sense Yeah, it makes sense.
Juju and Eric Ebron.
You know, they they're fairly new Steelers.
So it makes sense to me the Steelers that I know would want to play a full strength Ravens.
The Steelers fans.
I know the true Steelers fans would say, Take all the time you need.
We want you guys to be a full strength.
You know? Who did say that? That I will give credit to Vince Williams? He's a true Steeler to me because he said the same thing.
I want the Ravens to be at full strength, so there's not any doubt.
That's what a Ravens Steelers matchup is.
That's what the rivalries about it's not about.
Oh, you guys have to forfeit because you can't feel the team because of this and that.
That sounds like ***** **** straight up.
I'm sorry, dude, but this is football.
This is man sport, just like Ray Lewis used to say, Man, this is Ravens and Steelers, bro.
This same, the Bears and the Packers.
They think they have the best rivalry in the NFL.
No, this is Ravens Steelers.
This is the best rivalry in the NFL, and for all these Steelers fans, to say, Just forfeit, Just forfeit.
Or these Steelers players just forfeit the game.
What is this, dude? Come on, bro.
What has this turned into? What has Ravens and Steelers turned into? This is supposed to be a physical, violent football game that when you know you win, you deserve to win.
Because you were the better team that day.
That's what Ravens Steelers means to me.
That's what it's always meant, right? So I just don't get this whole Oh, you have to forfeit breath.
Get that **** out of here, bro.
Get that **** out of here.
And yeah, if we lose, we deserve to lose.
Because you know what? But we have the excuse that we had RG three starting, but anyway, no, but yeah, man, that just it doesn't make any sense to me that to me Sounds like you're a new Steelers fan if you want the Ravens to forfeit, because that just sounds That sounds something that Jews.
You would say that Eric Ebron would say soft ass players straight up, and they're not doing anything against the Ravens anyway.
Get the hell out of here.
Steelers wanted easy win because they scared of a healthy Ravens team.
Uh, shout out to my man.
There's gonna be scheduled changes were in the middle of a pandemic.
Yeah. I don't know what's gonna happen there.
Um, they want an eighth team in the playoffs because they know they're out.
If not, what are these guys talking about, bro? Even though they already beat a healthy Ravens team.
Uh, yeah, but like I said, Rahim shout out to you.
My men, By the way, I appreciate you being in here.
Um, to me, the Ravens should have won that game.
But Lamar just he screwed us, right? He straight up screwed us with all his turnovers.
If it wasn't for Lamar turning the football over, In my opinion, the Ravens should have won that game like, pretty handily, to be quite honest.
Um, but, you know, if ifs and buts were, I don't know what the phrases ifs and buts, or I'm thinking, no, but no cuts, no butts, no coconuts.
But that's not the phrase I'm thinking of.
Um, I can't think of the phrase right now.
So anyway, uh, if it wasn't for Lamar selling the game two steals would be nine and one. Exactly.
That's what I'm saying.
What else? Ravens showing their inner rural Thomas keeping it in the building.
Okay, Sammy d shout out to you, man.
Eso Nobody watched that game.
We destroyed them.
Yes, you're absolutely right. King tape.
That's what I said.
If it wasn't for Lamar, we would have won that game.
Um, work on the red zone. Ravens? Yes.
Thank you, Mathias.
I said in the last podcast in the last or the last video that we need to work on the red zone.
The red zone defense is just it bent.
You know, it's like we're the opposite of the bend.
Don't break defense.
Right? Because between the twenties were pretty **** good.
We don't really give up that much, but once they get into the red zone Oh, they break no problem.
Right? And then on offense, we just can't score.
We can't finish drives, we have toe settle for field goals or we turn the football over.
So yes, the red zone is a huge problem for this year's Ravens.
Thank you so much for the donation, My man, he says.
Brother, the Ravens could go 10 and zero Steelers.
Oh, and 10 we would lose.
You never know when these teams play.
Absolutely right. Raven Pride.
I keep saying it.
I keep bringing it up.
Don't forget the 2015 Ravens season, where we went five and 11.
We went five and 11, and two of those five winds were against the Pittsburgh Steelers, one of which had Ryan Mallett as the starting quarterback and the Steelers were at full strength.
So people that are saying that the Steelers, they're just gonna dominate the Ravens or that the Ravens should forfeit.
Um, it's Ravens, Steelers, baby.
It za different level of football.
And you should know this.
If you truly are a Steelers fan, right? If you didn't just come on in 2020 because, oh, this team is doing well, their their tenants.
Oh, I think I'm going to be a Steelers fan.
I like yellow and black.
Nah, brah, if you're a true Steelers fan, you know what this rivalry means.
And you know what this game means.
It's never a given for either team.
No matter how good of a team you are, No matter how bad of a team you are, it always comes down to the wire straight up, straight up.
So no offense to the Ravens, but if the game gets postponed again, they should have to forfeit again.
I just I'm not I'm not big into forfeiting, bro.
I am really not in big into forfeiting.
I think the game just needs to be played.
Um, I really don't want Ravens to forfeit.
I want to see a real wind.
Thank you, Rahim.
Totally agree, man.
Uh, just think about it.
If we were the Ravens and it was the Steelers dealing with all these issues with the co vid, I wouldn't be calling for a forfeit.
I would not be calling for a forfeit, because to me, that would ***** your record if we were under If the Ravens were 10 and oh, right now and we had a date with the Steelers coming up, but they were dealing with issues with co vid.
I wouldn't call for them to forfeit straight up.
That's ***** ****! I said it earlier to me.
That's ***** ****! I would not call for a forfeit.
I would say I want the Steelers to be a full strength or as as full of a strength as they could possibly be going into this game because I want there to be no doubt left after this game who the better team is? That's what Ravens Steelers is about.
I keep keep telling people, man.
