It was no surprise that Alabama coach Nick Saban acted like a Crimson Turd last night Authentic Tarvarius Moore Jersey , working himself into a needless frenzy by twisting an innocuous question from ESPN’s Maria Taylor into something much more nefarious and dastardly. It was a surprise that Saban actually apologized for being true to his own constitution and character.

Saban, a salty curmudgeon who seems to be happy only when he’s miserable, reportedly called Taylor on Saturday night to apologize for his outburst, which sort of resembled a real-time transformation from Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde, but for the fact that Saban rarely plays the Jekyll role.

Saban has been more sensitive than usual of late because of questions regarding his quarterbacks. Despite the obvious importance of the position and the natural interest in knowing whether one or the other will emerge as the guy, Saban would prefer that no one who serves as the de facto liaison for the fans ask him those questions.

Here’s hoping that they keep asking the questions, and that Saban finally figures out how to properly respond to questions he’d rather not answer.

BALTIMORE RAVENS (9-7)

New faces: QB Lamar Jackson, WR Michael Crabtree Rasmus Ristolainen Jersey , WR Willie Snead, TE Hayden Hurst, QB Robert Griffin III, WR John Brown, defensive coordinator Don Martindale.

Key losses: WR Jeremy Maclin, WR Mike Wallace, RB Danny Woodhead, CB Lardarius Webb Patriots Game Jerseys , WR Michael Campanaro, TE Benjamin Watson, RB Terrance West, QB Ryan Mallett, defensive coordinator Dean Pees.

Strengths: Defense kept Ravens in playoff hunt until final game of season. Baltimore led NFL with 22 interceptions, 34 takeaways and three shutouts. Ravens allowed 18.9 points per game, sixth best in league, but that also faltered in latter stages of 39-38 loss to Pittsburgh and crushing 31-27 defeat against Cincinnati in finale. Terrell Suggs had 11 sacks last year and still looks strong at age 36. Brandon Carr led DBs with four INTs Jason Zucker Jersey , and must come up big while CB Jimmy Smith opens season serving four-game suspension.

Weaknesses: Offense sputtered last season, and there are no guarantees new receiving corps and rejuvenated QB Joe Flacco will make difference. Flacco averaged meager 5.72 yards per attempt, threw 13 INTs and was sacked 27 times. Return of guard Marshal Yanda, who missed 14 games with leg injury, could give Flacco protection he sorely needs. Addition of Crabtree, Snead and Brown can only help offense that ranked 29th in yards passing last year.

Fantasy Players To Watch: Brown. Speedster gives Ravens deep threat missing since Torrey Smith was sprinting downfield in 2013. Brown signed one-year contract in hopes of showing rest of league he’s more like player who amassed 1,003 yards with Arizona in 2015 than injury-riddled receiver who last year had 21 catches for 299 yards with Cardinals.

Vegas Says: Super Bowl 50-1. Over/under wins 8.5.

Expectations: Ravens haven’t reached playoffs in three straight years, longest dry spell since 1990s. General manager Ozzie Newsome Isaac Yiadom Color Rush Jersey , who enters final year before handing reins to Eric DeCosta, has assembled team capable of threatening Pittsburgh in AFC North. For that to happen, Flacco must return to form and get some help from set of receivers that represents upgrade from 2017 group. Martindale promises to deliver aggressive defense after earning promotion from LB coach. It’s worth noting, however, that Martindale hasn’t been defensive coordinator since 2010 with Denver, when team gave up more yards and points than any.
