Webb’s back injury could be a big concern

89px-Lardarius_Webb_2012Baltimore Ravens starting corner Lardarius Webb has missed most of training camp with a back injury.  There looks to be no structural damage to Webb’s back which is a good sign but the fact that he is still not practicing is something to be worried about.  The Ravens are thin at corner right now with the loss of Aaron Ross and the fact that Chykie Brown has not had a good camp.

The Ravens right now are taking things easy with Webb.  Webb is a very good corner when healthy and they need him to start opposite of Jimmy Smith.  The Ravens may look to add more cornerback depth as the training camp and preseason go on.  Read the rest of this entry »

Can Alfred Morris stay productive?

The Washington Redskins have relied on their running backs for many years. In 2012 the Redskins selected Alfred Morris in the sixth round. In his first two seasons Morris had over 1,000 yards in each season and 20 total touchdowns in his career. The last two years Morris has the second most rushing yards only behind Adrian Peterson.  After becoming a well known player in his rookie year Morris made his first Pro Bowl in the 2013-14 season.

Orioles lineup 7/29/2014

The Baltimore Orioles start a three-game series with the Los Angeles Angels tonight.  The Orioles are returning home after a long road trip that saw them going six and four.  The Orioles do not have Chris Davis in the lineup tonight.  Davis was sent home because he is sick.

The lineup is a little odd today.

Here is the lineup.  Read the rest of this entry »

Ravens sign Norman, waive Sheppard

The Baltimore Ravens have signed defensive back Marrio Norman and waived Gerrard Sheppard.  Sheappard is a local product out of Towson University and a wide receiver, his chances of making the team were very slim.  Norman also looks like a camp body, he played his college football at Coastal Carolina and recently played Arena Football.  I see Norman as a practice squad player at best.

The Ravens do need more defensive backs as Aaron Ross was just put on injured reserve and Lardarius Webb has been out of practice with a back injury.  Read the rest of this entry »

The FIBA World Cup Should Matter

Embedded image permalinkAs I was listening to Bill Simmons and Zach Lowe talk about the FIBA World Cup this morning, and its lack of popularity in the United States, it got me thinking as to why nobody seems to care about this event over here in the good ol’ US of A. Other teams such as Spain, Argentina, Greece etc. take this tournament very seriously while having way less to work with; and we are over here complaining because our starting five potentially “only” consists of Durant, Curry, Harden, Davis and possibly Paul George.

Is the U.S.A. just so spoiled with great basketball events throughout the year that they don’t even want to waste their time with simple things such as international competition? It’s not as if the competition is terrible, there have been many good games in FIBA World Cup (previously just the FIBA World Championship) history, and it isn’t as if the United States just breezes through each game by 30+ points (the US has actually only won the event 4 times since it started in 1950).
