New chapter of Steelers-Ravens rivalry has different feel
Thursday’s podcast takes a trip down to Baltimore. We check in with Jeremy Conn of 105.7 The Fan.
The Ravens come to Heinz Field Sunday afternoon to play the Steelers.
Conn gives us the reasons behind the ups and downs of the Ravens so far in 2019. Few teams looked better than they did in the first two weeks of the season. Now they’ve lost two straight and have sunk into the soft middle of the conference.
Strangely, the Baltimore offense is ahead of its defense. That’s not something we are used to saying as we get ready for another chapter of the Steelers-Ravens rivalry.
Brandon Williams is questionable. The Earl Thomas signing hasn’t worked out. Plus, those two were reportedly arguing in the locker room after last week’s loss.
We try to find out why.
The corners are suspect. The pass rush isn’t what it used to be. Plus, the defense is giving up too many big plays.
This is all very un-Raven like. Conn tells us if he thinks they can turn that around in Pittsburgh.
Meanwhile, offensively, the Steelers are getting their first look at quarterback Lamar Jackson. His tight ends and receivers are helping the cause. But is he helping himself by trying to stay in the pocket for as long as he has been doing?
Also, Conn and I get into the landscape of a shaky AFC at the quarter pole.
