Let’s take a look at the Ravens topics of note and decide what we are on board with:
Well, here we sit, another week of not knowing if there will even be a 2020 NFL season.
Actually, let’s forget that last line. There will be a 2020 NFL season. Of course, there will be a 2020 NFL season — and it will start on time, with no interruptions and I will find myself sitting in M&T Bank Stadium with a beer in one hand and a phone in the other, capturing selfies of me, well, sitting in M&T Bank stadium with a beer in one hand and a phone in the other.
Don’t worry. Sometimes I confuse myself, as well.
Though we’re firmly planted in the Desert of the Great Unknown right now, a stubborn rumor mill continues to spit out topics to chew on. Let’s take a quick look at a few things Ravens-related, and offer each topic a “yay” or “nay” decision from a brilliant and astounding mind — mine.
• The Ravens should sign Colin Kaepernick as their backup quarterback, reuniting him with Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman and offering similar skills to MVP quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Nay. I kind of like the player, and I really like the fit. However, what’s wrong with Robert Griffin III? He also can play that role in Roman’s offense. He has developed a strong relationship with Jackson from this outsider’s perspective and I’m not sure he’s a lesser player than Kaepernick. Remember Kaepernick hasn’t played competitive football since 2016.
I mean, he’d probably be good as a third-string option, particularly in a season when there is a strong possibility teams could lose players for two to three weeks at a time due to COVID-19, but all things being equal, I’m taking Griffin as Jackson’s main backup.
