Lowest rated offensive players
Jah Reid (-6.0), Javorius Allen (-3.4), Leon Brown (-2.9), Matt Schaub (-2.4), Justin Forsett (-2.1)
Jah Reid has had a decent offseason that has most analysts predicting that he will survive final cuts. Perhaps he got a little too confident, because he was downright terrible on Saturday night.
Forced to play 46 snaps due to the incredible number of injuries on the o-line, Reid allowed 2 sacks and two hurries, and was equally bad as a run blocker (-2.8).
Allen was a huge disappointment as well after assuming #2 running back duties following Lorenzo Taliaferro’s injury, and got called out following the game by head coach John Harbaugh for fumbling. He played 26 unimpressive and uneventful snaps.
Leon Brown played a whopping 4 snaps yet managed to give up a QB hit, and graded out poorly as a run blocker. It won’t help his chances at a roster spot.
Schaub, as we’ve discussed before, is simply done. Arguably overpaid with a $1 million dollar salary, it makes you wonder if the Ravens would be better off just rolling with a younger backup. Schaub played only 15 snaps but managed a fumble, interception, and he absorbed 3 sacks. It was a bad night even by his standards.
The incredibly bad play of the offensive line effected even Justin Forsett, who couldn’t find any room to run across 14 snaps. He did OK as a pass blocker, however. The Ravens clearly need to get healthy up front if they stand any chance of repeating last year’s performance on the ground.
