Peyton Manning (2015) worse than Trent Dilfer (2000)? Maybe


Peyton Manning (2015) worse than Trent Dilfer (2000)? Maybe

The next time former Ravens quarterback Trent Dilfer sees Peyton Manning, Dilfer can talk some trash.

Dilfer had a slightly better season statistically when the Ravens won their first Super Bowl title than Manning had this season for the Broncos. Here’s how the numbers stack up:

Dilfer in 2000 regular season

Eight starts, 12 TD passes, 11 interceptions, 59.3% completions, 76.6 QB rating.

Manning in 2015 regular season

Nine starts, 9 TD passes, 17 interceptions, 59.8% completions, 67.9 QB rating

Dilfer in 2000 playoffs

Four starts, 3 TD passes, one interception, 47.9% completions, 83.7 QB rating

Manning in 2015 playoffs

Three starts, 2 TD passes, one interception, 55.4% completions, 75.4 QB rating

Dilfer has heard for years that he’s one of the worst quarterbacks, maybe THE worst, to win a Super Bowl. But just like the Ravens’ great defense led them to a championship in 2000, the Broncos’ great defense, not Manning, was the force that drove the Broncos’ run to a title. Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was the Super Bowl MVP the year Dilfer got his ring, while Broncos linebacker Von Miller won the MVP award Sunday.

What about the rest of Manning’s career compared to Dilfer’s? Well, that’s a comparison Dilfer may want to avoid at all costs.

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season


Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Enjoying a game at M&T Bank Stadium just became a little more affordable.

On Thursday, the Ravens introduced their new "Flock Friendly Fare," reducing the price of 21 of their most popular food and beverage items.  

The change comes as the organization focuses on revamping the fan experience in 2018. Fans will see an average of 33 percent in total savings and up to 53 percent savings on a single item.  

"As a lot of you probably know, after every game we survey fans to see how we're doing; what have we done well and what have we not done well. Over the years, one of the biggest criticisms we received was for the gameday concessions prices," Ravens President Dick Cass said on the team's website

Alcoholic beverages were all reduced by $1 with the addition of domestic 12 ounce beer for $5.

Chicken tenders with fries went from $11 to $7, while a slice of pizza went from $8.50 to $6. No single item will cost above $9.

On average, you will now be able to feed a family of four for $44 compared to $66.75 in years past. To see all of the reductions, click the arrow in the post below. 

In 2017, the Atlanta Falcons reduced their concession prices upon opening their brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Ravens, however, are expecting to lose $1.5 million in concession revenue due to the change.

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas has spoken and they are not optimistic about rookie Lamar Jackson starting under center for the Ravens in 2018.

Bovado, an online gambling site, has set the odds on how the top 2018 rookies will perform and they have Jackson getting 0.5 starts this season.

That number will come as a surprise considering the popular narrative that Lamar Jackson will be the Ravens' starter in no time. The team made it clear they are planning for life after Flacco when they traded back into the first-round of the 2018 draft to select the quarterback out of Louisville at No. 32

Flacco - who is entering his 11th season with the organization - is experiencing a decline in his performance of late, one that can not be put entirely on his shoulders as the team has failed in finding him valuable weapons to throw to. Nonetheless, Flacco's projected 2018 season is very much up in the air and it appears Vegas is betting on the one-time Super Bowl MVP to bounce back. 

However, the Ravens have failed to make the playoffs four of the last five seasons, and if that trend continues into 2018, the rookie could get his shot at flipping the script.

If you're a betting man, it could payoff to bet the over on Jackson. Low risk, seemingly high reward.
