Believe It Or Not, Lamar Jackson and Marquise Brown (And Two Others) Made It On Both Lists

September 9, 2019
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.

As you all are surely aware, the Ravens turned in a dominant victory against the hapless Dolphins in Week 1, and as a result, we have some Ass-Pats to hand out.

They will count down in sequential order before we name the ultimate honor -- Pat On Both Cheeks.  That one player who one single Pat just wouldn't sit right (pun intended).

With no further ado:

Glenn's Pats on the Ass:

5. S Earl Thomas

He stepped up and made a play when the game was still a game. It was tough to identify specific defensive players to choose from because it became a laugher so quickly. But when it was still a football game, he made the play.

4. LB Patrick Onwuasor 

He was all over the field when it came to making plays. He made an impact seemingly at every level.

3. Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman

The scripted part of the gameplan was so perfect that they never needed to go off-script. May it forever be that way. 

2. QB Lamar Jackson

It was nearly impossible for me to choose between number two and number one. In fact I wanted to make it a tie. Lamar was obviously incredible. 

1. WR Marquise Brown (Pat on Both Cheeks)

The only reason I went with Brown at #1 and Jackson #2 is because of the "cause and effect" nature of what happened yesterday. It seems like Brown's greatness had a pretty direct impact on Jackson's. But if you went with Jackson at #1 because ultimately he's the quarterback and that's the most important thing, you're not wrong. 

Kyle's Pats on the Ass...

5. Patrick Onwuasor

Flew around the football field, and was particularly impactful with his pass rush, which was an encouraging sight.

4. Earl Thomas

Showed early that he brings a true playmaking aspect to the defense that both shores up coverage on the back end and provides a spark in the turnover department.

3. Mark Andrews

Diabetics stick together. He also looked really effing good.

2. Marquise Brown

What a difference it makes to put electric athletes on the outside (and slot). Not only did the athleticism stand out, but the nuances of both his route running and hands were also on display. What a debut.

1. Lamar Jackson (Two Pats on the Ass)

Copy. Paste. Forever and ever.
