Coming off a decisive victory against the formidable CLEVELAND BROWNS, the Ravens prepare for another slobberknocker matchup with the fighting Irsays!
Jason and Jerry give a full recap of Sunday’s expected, but needed win in Cleveland before looking ahead to the Ravens’ Saturday matchup against the Colts.
Then, the boys touch on the O’s trepidation to actually keep themselves open to different sorts of trades involving Manny Machado — and Jason has a trade proposal for a certain in-division rival.
We’re joined this week by one of our favorite guests, our own VoiceOver talent, Kenny Albert! Kenny talks his experiences (or lackthereof) with Baltimore rats, life at Madison Square Garden, and!!! …not much more.. hey, it’s the holidays ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
And as always, we have Jason’s Married Guy Rant, Adam’s homework assignment (a special investigation edition!), and much more!
It’s an age of existential crisis when it comes to Baltimore sports. The Ravens lose a heartbreaker to the Steelers in frustrating fashion, the Orioles are (finally) coming to their senses as fans start to grasp the idea of a post-Manny Birdland…. and we’re talking it all!
We start with a full recap of Sunday Night’s epic matchup (4:05), and preview the scariest game vs. a winless opponent this city has ever seen.
Then, we discuss the news coming out of MLB’s Winter Meetings that the Orioles are fielding offers for superstar Manny Machado… a year too late for our liking, but what can you do? (26:00)
Our guest this week calls in from none other than the Winter Meetings itself, as Mark Feinsand of MLB.com — formerly of the NY Daily News — talks all things AL East in the Winter Meetings. (34:45)
And as always, we have Adam’s homework assignment, Jason’s Married Guy Rant, and a whole lot of Jerry being Jerry… check it out!
As the Ravens gear up for prime time rivalry week, Jason and Jerry recap Sunday’s big win, Jimmy Smith’s woes, and look ahead to Sunday night vs. the Steelers!
Then, we’re privileged to be joined again by former Ravens running back Ray Rice.
Ray goes into detail about his work as a speaker, coach, and the rest of his life away from the playing field. As always, Ray is amazingly humble, candid, and accountable. Ray also shares his perspective on Colin Kaepernick’s circumstance as someone who also has never gotten to work out with a team — let alone get the chance to start again in the NFL. We also talk Ravens, mental wellness, building a post-playing career life, and more.
As always, we have Jason’s Married Guy Rant, Adam’s homework, and some Orioles talk hon!
While the Ravens continue to sputter towards a likely pointless playoff push, we take a step back and see how falling fan enthusiasm is sending waves through Baltimore.
After recapping Monday Night Football’s partially-attended yawn’er, we’re joined by our old friend Johnny Crabcakes of Jimmy’s Famous Seafood to talk about how business based around Ravens games and fans have fallen off and why. (14:00)
Then, we’re thrilled to be joined by Lions linebacker Brandon Copeland — whose story you’ll have to hear to believe. From Baltimore’s Gilman School to the Ivy League to Wall Street to the NFL, Copeland’s a pretty remarkable human who does Baltimore proud every day. Don’t miss one of our best interviews yet! (30:45)
And as always, we have Jerry (and Adam)’s homework, Jason’s Married Guy Rant, and our predictions for this week’s game. Don’t miss it, hon!
Happy Thanksgiving from B-More Opinionated!
After a rough stretch heading into the Bye week, the Ravens bounced back with a vengeance on Sunday against the Packers. Our own Jason La Canfora and Jerry Coleman break down the shutout victory and what it means for the team’s playoff hopes.
The boys then look ahead to the Ravens’ Monday Night Football matchup against the Texans, and look around at the rest of the AFC and see what the Ravens’ have in store ahead.
Then, Jason and Jerry touch on the latest with the O’s as the team locked in its protected minor leaguers on the 40-man roster this week — with one notable omission that we revisit from our interview with Orioles Manager Buck Showalter.
And as always we have Jerry (and Adam)’s homework, Jason’s Married Guy Rant, and more.
Bring BMO Show with you on your Thanksgiving travels! We are thankful every week for Natty Bohs, Otterbein’s Cookies, Bob Bell Nissans, and listeners like you!
As the Ravens wrap up their Bye week, there are still plenty of questions swirling around ‘The Castle.’
Jason and Jerry spend time discussing former-Raven Dennis Pitta’s comments about the team’s offense and QB Joe Flacco’s limitations within it. [5:30]
The boys also go into what the Ravens need to solidify in the final stretch to make the most of an unexpected (undeserved?) realistic shot at the playoffs.
Our own Jason La Canfora goes more into detail about the latest on Jerry Jones, as well and Colin Kaepernick saga — particularly those in and around the Ravens’ organization who are likely to be affected by the ongoing lawsuit. [14:20]
Then, we’re privileged to be joined by former NFL Wide Receiver Donté Stallworth. Since retiring from football, Donté has been a part of many meaningful discussions with both Congress and the NFL about racial inequality, criminal justice reform, and activism as both a professional athlete and a concerned citizen. [19:40]
We also go into the latest Orioles’ rumors stemming from this week’s GM Meetings, including Zach Britton’s trade market and the search for starting pitching. [48:40]
As always, we have Jerry (and Adam’s) homework assignment, Jason’s Married Guy rant, this week’s Ravens picks, and much much more!
As the Ravens head into a much-needed bye week, Jerry and Jason have taken it upon themselves to review the team at this crucial checkpoint!
To help, we brought in the likes of Head Coach John Harbaugh, Terrell Suggs, Mike Wallace, Breshad Perriman, and WR coach Bobby Engram. You’ll hear clips from all of them as we lift the curtain on an NFL open lockerroom media availability.
The boys also revisit our great interview with Buck Showalter one week removed, and talk a little Orioles as Free Agency officially opens in baseball.
As always, we have Jerry (and Adam’s) homework, Jason’s Married Guy rant, and more!
It’s a jam-packed episode this week, as we are privileged to be joined by Orioles manager Buck Showalter! (28:00)
Buck opens up candidly about his views on the organization’s depth, development, roster building philosophies and more! He goes into detail about his view on Starting Pitching following his rotation’s tough season (29:00), the importance of being able to better develop homegrown pitching (31:30), looking to insert athleticism and youth into his defense (34:00), the idea that the proverbial window is closing (35:45), other quality managers losing their jobs (37:15), the progress of top prospect Chance Cisco (41:15), and even joins in our frustration about the lost talent in poor trades over recent years (44:30). This is an absolute must-listen for any Orioles fan.
The boys also discuss at length the Ravens’ pleasantly surprising drubbing of the Dolphins on Thursday Night Football, the Ravens’ place in the playoff picture (15:08), and our own Jason LaCanfora goes in-depth on Jerry Jones’ recent tantrums with the NFL League Office (21:10).
As always, we have Jerry (and Adam)’s homework, Jason’s Married Guy Rant (with a bonus 50-year-old Guy Rant from Jerry), and this week’s picks! Don’t miss it!
Another week of the B-More Opinionated podcast means another week of trying to identify the problems of the Ravens’ inept offense! Jason and Jerry open the show talking all-things Ravens, including their short week looking ahead to Thursday Night Footbal vs. Miami.
Then, Ravens legendary linebacker Bart Scott joins the show (30:45) to share his take on the Ravens, the quality of NFL’s on-field product, how he would fare if he were still in his prime, and more!
And of course, what would an episode of the BMO Show be without checking in on our beloved O’s? Jason and Jerry discuss a new crop of pitching coaches that have recently come available (46:20).
We also have Jerry (and Adam)’s homework, Jason’s Married Guy Rant, and our picks for Thursday Night Football. Check it out!
