10 things Baltimore Ravens fans want to see against the Titans
10. Michael Crabtree turning it around:
The Baltimore Ravens fanbase is pretty mad at Michael Crabtree at the moment. The frustration towards number 15 is justified. The Baltimore Ravens lead the National Football League in drops and Michael Crabtree has been the drop king this season. While Crabtree has put up some decent numbers, that only adds to the frustration. Imagine what Crabtree’s stat line would look like without the seven drops in five games.
The Ravens new look offense was built around the passing game. It was built around a new trio of wide receivers, and Crabtree was supposed to be the leader of said trio. Instead John Brown has taken the crown as the most productive receiver. While it’s good to see the Ravens investment in Brown paying dividends, they have to get Crabtree to consistently produce. Dropping first downs is frustrating. Dropping a game winning touchdown… that’s something Ravens fans are a little extra sensitive about (Lee Evans). It just isn’t acceptable.
Crabtree has had a history of drops, but he also has a history of being a good receiver. Even great receivers have had these kinds of problems before. Terrell Owens went through some drops, but when it’s all said and done he may be the third best receiver in the history of football. Crabtree can be a good player for the Ravens. Baltimore can’t give up on him. Still, there’s only so much patience in Baltimore for drops.
