Welcome to the second episode of Purple-Painted Roundtable, a Baltimore Ravens podcast brought to you by Ebony Bird and Fansided. This episode airs on the Charm City Bird Watch Podcast Network.
On this episode, site experts Chris Schisler and Joe Schiller, and contributor Jake McDonnell, are back to go over the top stories surrounding the Ravens. At the time of recording this episode, 24 hours separate the Ravens from their first preseason game against the Washington Redskins. What are the top storylines going into the game? What should fans expect on Thursday? Who are some players to watch?
Of course, not all of the news concerns the game. It is no secret that the Ravens endured a rough start to training camp, particularly with injuries. Yesterday, head coach John Harbaugh lashed out at a reporter for asking about Marlon Humphrey, who has missed a string of practices with an undisclosed injury. Hear the guys’ response to this, and their thoughts on if Harbaugh’s answer was appropriate.
Check out articles from all three of these guys on Ebony Bird.
The first big topic revolves around one of the most polarizing figures in sports, Colin Kaepernick. Will he end up in Baltimore? Does the news about Kaepernick’s girlfriend lashing out at owner Steve Bisciotti change things?
The biggest positional concern for Baltimore appears to be the offensive line. Will the Ravens get by with what they have, or are they in trouble? Who could they target out on the market?
Finally, the guys spend some time discussing the Ravens defense. Can the unit carry then team?
