    Ravens offense gonna shock the world.

    I truthfully think the Ravens have a massive range (12-4 and 4-12 are both very possible), but the man who ran the Colin Kaepernick offense in 2012 is running Lamar Jackson's offense now. Very similar skill set. Mark Andrews and Hayden Hurst is going to be a great TE combination. They added 3 guys who run sub 4.4's in Brown, Boykin and Hill. Ingram can be a bell cow. They're gonna be a lot of fun to watch and everyone is sleeping on Jackson.

    The only thing I'm sure about in that division is that the Bengals will finish last.

    Duke Williams was targeted twice but had zero catches in his first preseason game for Buffalo. Someone on the radio the other day (I believe Buffalo sport media) said that Williams was in tough for a roster spot, saying his style of game is not a fit with the Bills offense - take that for whatever it is worth.

    Bryant Mitchell and Brandon Zylstra get their first shots of the year Friday night. Hopefully they can have better results.

    On the note of ticket prices...I just got tickets to a preseason game between the Titans and Patriots this weekend for $51 USD - taxes and fees included.

    Absolutely ludicrous prices in Winnipeg.

    Sounds like Duke made an impression tonight. Don't know if it's enough, but have to think with the change to a single cut-down this year, he's going to get the full camp to change minds.

    Typical Duke. Good for him.

    And Rapistburger will somehow still cause drama.
