The alignment of their secondary looked like they were playing run support on almost every play. Our run game is great but they really needed to adjust at halftime.Lamar's deep passes were things of beauty.
Short passing looks good but I'll reserve judgement on those until we play a decent defence.

There aren’t too many great secondaries around, so we might have to wait a few weeks to get really tested.
Perhaps they thought we would stop passing with such a big lead and just run for the second half.DT Davon Godchaux
On the game plan vs. the Ravens offense:
“We wanted to keep – basically make Lamar [Jackson] throw the ball. Like I said, I [take] my hat off to the Baltimore Ravens. Lamar had a great game. He threw the ball, threw some touchdowns. I don’t know how many he threw, but he threw some touchdowns. Hats off to those guys. Those guys had a great game plan, great execution. They just flat out beat us."
You're right though, it's crazy they didn't make any adjustments after half time.
Torrey Smith retired today. Such a icon of the team while he was with us.
I'll never forget that game after his brother passed away and he played the very next day scoring 3 touchdowns against the Pats.
My one Ravens game I saw live he scored a TD right in front of me on Thanksgiving against the Steelers.
The game in Denver on our SB run also stands out to me as one of his best for us.
Did very well to end up with two rings in his career.
I wouldn't be surprised if he becomes involved with the team again in a community role.
I was bullish about Boykin, who has been almost invisible. While, Hollywood is just a playmaker and exactly who we needed on the outside.
On another note, Hollywood looks like a great pick in these early stages.
Would you be happy if we made that trade? EG a 1st and a 3rd for Ramsey?Having Ramsey and Marvin locking down the outsides would be unfair.
While I would love it to happen, I don't have high hopes for it because it'll take at least a 1st and another fairly high draft pick and EDC doesn't seem the type to be happy to do that. He's a self described "pick whore" and was annoyed at not having a 2nd rounder this year because we had traded it to get Lamar
Ramsey is easily worth a first and third. Would have to negotiate a deal first that had a big increase next year. Jimmy Smith will leave and Carr is getting old. We need Jalen for the main target and Humphrey can dominate the secondary one.Would you be happy if we made that trade? EG a 1st and a 3rd for Ramsey?
I would love us to use a first round pick to sure up the O-line or get a blue chip pass rusher (or will our pick be too low)?
I would do our next two firsts IF we got a second and third back. Not much difference between pick 25 to pick 50.What the three of you have mentioned does make sense. It seems that the Jags want 2 first though. If we back Lamar in (as we should) I doubt either of those firsts will be top 15 picks, so it is probably worth it if we can tie up Ramsey for the next 5 years. Having more cap space after Flacco's dead money is gone next year helps.
