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 turned in a disappointing loss to the Chargers to end the 2018 season, and as a result, we have some Helmet-Slaps to hand out.
They will count down in sequential order before we name the ultimate honor -- Two Slaps To The Helmet. That one player who one single Slap just wouldn't sit right.
Without further ado:
Glenn's Pats on the Ass:
He had opportunities to make plays and didn't. On a day where it was difficult t pick two defensive players, that's enough to make the list.
Just wasn't his day-which was disappointing after his big week against the Browns.
Plain and simple-he wasn't good. Sure, he did some things in the fourth quarter when the Chargers stopped trying (which proved to be a major mistake by them). But it was a bad day and we have to be willing to recognize that.
As is all too common. And John Harbaugh deserves blame in this department too.
The defense played great, but they could have really, really used some more turnovers, and let one slip through his hands.
Seemed like he was on the other side of most of the Chargers’ big gains, which is not ideal.
Looked like the worst-case scenario for three quarters, salvaged only slightly (and statistically) by the fourth. Hopefully his struggles this game (and beyond) throwing the football have been public enough to force some re-evaluation.
The failure to adjust — both entering this game and coming out of the second half — shed light on the greater concerns about this coaching staff’s ability to adapt and evolve.
1. Ronnie Stanley (two slaps)
Rough afternoon for him, especially after the reports that the Chargers keyed in on a mechanical tell of his. Even Ogden looked pedestrian against Freeney, but Stanley still has a ways to go before he can earn those mulligans, no matter how good Ingram and Bksa may be.
