Alex Collins Activated For Today
« on: September 17, 2017, 09:51:21 am »

In a surprise, late move, Baltimore moved AC up from the practice squad, he'll be active for today's game vs the Browns.

The Ravens lost Danny Woodhead on the first drive of the game last week, he was utilized heavily as a receiver out of the backfield.

Collins may be the best receiving back they have now, once he is up to speed he may prove as good an all around back as they have.  Hope he sees the field today.

Hold on to the darned* ball.




Just for clarification I would never use the word "darned"".  I hate that word.

But somehow the powers that be for some reason think that the word I did use must be a cuss word of some sort.

marred what would have otherwise been a great debut, 7 carries for 42 yards.

by contrast, the starter went 8 carries for 22 yards.

Not For Long will be his career because of this stuff.

Because of how he looked, and because of the Ravens need at RB, I bet they give him another chance.

But I'd say he can't afford to fumble again for the remaining 1st half of the season at least.

It was at the end of a 13 yard run, he lost the 3 points of pressure after spinning around, going for extra yards, and a 2nd defender came in and punched it out before his knee was down.

He's gotta fix that, it looks promising for him in Baltimore if he can, Raven's O really seems to fit his style. looked darn good today.  It'll be interesting to hear the coach's post game PC.

He definitely looked like a starting back until the fumble.  There are only so many chances for running back in the NFL.  If he doesn't have this issue fixed at this point, I doubt he ever will.  We can hope for the best, but in the end it's up to him to perform.

Alex is one of my favorite former players of recent years. He seems like a great young man who truly loved being a Razorback. I hope that he makes it in the NFL, but more importantly, I hope that he succeeds in whatever path in life he chooses to take.

Harbaugh on Alex:

"Alex stepped up there. He had a little bit of quickness and speed. He was kind of fresh at the end, and I thought it gave us something in the fourth quarter, against a defense that was playing fourth-quarter football. He was fresh, and he has some quickness to him, and he ran really hard. The one thing I would say – and we talked about this on the sideline, so he knows it – sometimes, enough is enough. You don’t do too much to jeopardize the football. He has never been a guy who has had an issue with that, and I’m sure he’ll do well in the future with that.”"

82 yards on only 9 carries for AC today in London, in what was a lopsided game.  He looks like their best back out there.

The Ravens lone score came on a late Ryan Mallet TD pass, they lost 44-7.

AC could be their starter soon.
