Welcome to Episode 25 of the Charm City Bird Watch Podcast with site owner Jake McDonnell, editor Nolan McGraw, and author Ian Schultz.

Since we recorded this week’s podcast only hours before the Mike Elias news broke in Baltimore, the top of the show features Jake’s reaction to the Orioles hiring their new general manager (4:45). The Orioles have yet to confirm the hire, but barring a last-minute setback, Elias is on his way to Charm City. What does this mean for the future of the Orioles? Hopefully Jake’s reaction paints the picture for you.

Up next, Nolan and Ian join the program to address the quarterback rumors surrounding the Baltimore Ravens ahead of their game against the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday (16:35). Joe Flacco has a hip injury and missed practice on Wednesday while reporters flocked to Lamar Jackson to talk to the rookie first-round quarterback days before what’s likely his first NFL start. The guys also run through some things to watch for against the Bengals on Sunday (25:04) and project the Ravens’ wins/losses through the rest of their regular season schedule (38:17)

To wrap up the show, Ian calls out Draymond Green on this week’s edition of What An Idiot (49:16). We also dive into our weekly numbers segment, taking a look at the best Baltimore sports athletes to wear the number 25 (54:41).
