I've seen Barwin get around the QB in multiple games this season.. he just hasn't been able to get the sacks, but it's not like he was being shut out from supplying pressure (Like Mario in Buffalo). He didn't have a sack until week 5 last season.. it took a extra game this year. Sometimes when they come, they come in bunches. Let's hope that this is a sign that the law of averages are starting to level out and Barwin's sack #s are about to blow up.

I want to see Reed, Barwin, Mercilus and Brahman all on the field at the same time. Put Reed and Brahman in the middle.

By the way Brahman's name should start going on some probowl ballets soon if he keeps up his special teams play.

There are special teams specific pro bowl slots. Usually they are reserved for return guys though

This! I think if Reed can handle the defensive calls then this would put our most athletic LBs on the field. Would be fun to watch some plays of this team on the field.

Braman is not going to the pro bowl in his current role either which was my initial statement.

No they do not. Kick returners usually occupy the special teams position.

And please show me where molden was ever on anyones pro bowl radar.I don't remember that. I searched the net and couldn't find anything. Maybe I missed it.

Will demps was an alternate one year, but he was a starter at safety.

It doesn't really matter. When someone says "Great Special Teams!" they aren't thinking of the Houston Texans. Braman could be the best gunner in the NFL and he wouldn't garner a second look on our awful squad

My bad.. they don't hold alternates for ST positions, but he was up for consideration one year as he was one of the best gunners in the league.. the only year he was healthy. Osgood of the Chargers went that season.

However gunners do make the probowl.. they actually have a position on STs. There's 4 ST positions in the probowl.

Kicker
Punter
kick returner
and
Special teams player... usually elite gunners. Like Osgood was.

Did your magic 8 ball tell you that?

I understand that it's not likely, because he doesn't have a lot of notoriety, but I don't understand the motive of writing him off with 100% certainty.. he has been a top gunner this year and whether he goes or not, he is deserving.

Braman isn't s gunner...

Do you even know what you're saying?

You sound ridiculous trumpeting Braman for the pro bowl.

You need to learn how to read. I haven't given any reason. I haven't even commented in what I think of his special teams play. But hey, if you want to live in your fantasy land where Braman is on the pro bowl radar go ahead.

Default Re: Our first round pick Whitney Mercilus

I was very satisfied by the OLB play today, top to bottom and I think at least some of their success stems from the fact that we actually saw a rotation today. Fresh legs doing damage. It's hard to talk up a player that isn't producing but I think the more focused fan can see that Barwin hasn't been completely absent despite the numbers. It's a helluva lot harder to flat out IGNORE production though and I gotta say, Mercilus has been producing at a higher clip than Barwin this season. I'm not trying to say switch them out....but I am trying to say keep the rotation alive. It's clearly enough to keep Barwin/Reed on their toes and Mercilus/Braman getting some snaps is only going to push them to do better.

Looked to me like the Ravens sold out on Watt and said somebody else beat us....and EVERYONE else did lol.
