Week Two's Grades:
Chris Redman, in the forbidden black hightops did not throw a touchdown, and should have had about five passes picked off more then he did. He finished 16 of 38 for 141 yards, a 42.1 completion percentage. The quarterbacking for the Ravens was in a word, disheartening.
Jamal Lewis looked ok, but generally average, as he carried the ball 17 times for 53 yards, a mediocre 3.1 yards per carry. He caught the ball fairly well.
Honorable mention to Brandon Stokely here, who was able to consistently get open, and haul in balls, but the lackluster award goes to Todd Heap, who managed to drop his share of balls.
No consistant pass protection for Redman, but began to come on towards the end.
For being undersized, held up very well against the run, but generated no pressure on Brad Johnson throughout the game.
Played well, with Cornell Brown getting his first start and making an impact, and Ray Lewis recording a career high in tackles.
Played poorly in pass coverage, letting Brad Johnson have his way. They were helped of course, by the lack of pass rush, but were fooled again and again.
Allowed a punt return for a touchdown with some horrible coverage, and the only field goal attempted was blocked. The only reason this unit doesn't receive a D is the consistant play of Zastudil.
Entire team looked unmotivated, had virtually no blitzes called, and another very poor showing by the constantly unimaginative Matt Cavanaugh. Every Ravens fan should wonder why this guy isn't riding the garbage truck yet.
Thank god for the bye week.
