What are the Ravens Saying About the Bolts?


On the team…

"They're a great football team across the board. Very talented (and) know how to win tough games. You saw last week against the Chiefs they did it." – G James Hurst

"They're playing outstanding football. It's going to be a great matchup, us versus them. They're on a roll all season. Again, we're going against one of the best teams in the league – we relish that situation. … We're excited for the challenge and the matchup. Everything is there. They have a lot riding on it; we do, too. Two great teams going at it – let's see what happens." – S Eric Weddle

On Chargers offense…

"They have speed, they have shape, they have it all. They have a quarterback that really – he doesn't really want to check it down right quick. He'll take the hit if he has to, to let a route develop. He's not really a big scrambler guy, but he'll definitely sit in that pocket and wait for routes to fully develop." – CB Marlon Humphrey

On Philip Rivers…

"Philip is probably one of the smartest (quarterbacks). He's probably in the category with the top two or three guys. Dissecting the defense, playing the chess game … I'm sure he and Eric (Weddle) will have a lot of that going on during the game. He really finds the weakness. He's not afraid to take chances. The thing that's jumped out to me watching the tape of him (that) I'm really, really impressed by is his courage. He stands in there, and he waits until the last second. He's not waiting just to wait, he's waiting because he has something coming open, and he'll throw it to a spot. Most of the time it works out well for him. Sometimes you get it – sometimes you pick it off. He only holds it when he absolutely has to, and he'll take a sack if he has to. He gets the most out of every play." – Head Coach John Harbaugh

"Phew, he's good! Really, I mean, in respect to the game, he's going to go down as one of the greatest. Everybody sees it, everybody knows it. You can't say that he's like somebody else; he's Philip Rivers. I think the young quarterbacks aspire to be like him, the way he has command of the offense. I heard John (Harbaugh) say in his press conference – and I told him I thought it was perfect – the analogy of, 'He tries to get the most out of every play that he calls,' whether it's a run play, whether it's a pass play. He has such a competitive spirit. As a defensive coordinator, it's a lot of fun to go against it, because it's a chess match on every play." – Defensive Coordinator Don Martindale

"I've heard some of the guys talking that he's a pretty emotional guy – he'll say some things. I hear he does a lot of chirping. He has a lot of confidence in his game, and rightfully so – he's a great player. Most great players, just about all of them, definitely have high confidence." – CB Marlon Humphrey

"He's one of the best men I've ever been around and look up to in a lot of ways. I'm grateful that I can say he's one of my friends, one of my brothers." – S Eric Weddle

"He's a precision passer. A lot of his stuff is based on timing and he directs all that stuff. Anytime you can get those kind of guys, those Drew Brees-type of guys, to throw off their timing and get pressure in their face makes a hell of a difference." – DT Michael Pierce

On Mike Williams…

"He's definitely a jump-ball guy. Even when he's covered, he's not really covered, just because of how big he is. He can box guys out really well. You have to try to get your work done early with him. When the ball goes up, you have to try to win the 50/50 (battles)." – CB Marlon Humphrey

On Chargers defense…

"Los Angeles is a very fast defense. Every single guy out there can really run and (has a) motor, which will be a challenge for our offense." – Head Coach John Harbaugh

"The speed. I feel like that's going to be the fastest team we face all season. We're just preparing right now. … All of them (flock) to the ball – all 11 to the ball at all times. They're flying around, making plays, making turnovers. They're a good defense." – QB Lamar Jackson

"Very good defense. The last I checked, I believe they were (ranked) somewhere around eighth total. They do some very, very good things. They have a couple edge rushers. They have some very good men inside. Their secondary is very aggressive (and) skilled. Certainly, it's going to be quite a challenge, along with an opportunity." – Offensive Coordinator Marty Mornhinweg

On Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa…

"They're All-Pro talents. Obviously, Bosa hasn't played that much this year, but he's still had All-Pro production in the little bit that he's played. Obviously, Melvin Ingram is in the Pro Bowl. … Bosa and Ingram are two of the best at what they do." – T Orlando Brown Jr.
