The Caw: Justin Forsett's #BandAidGang Begins


Let's start this up right now.

When fans come to M&T Bank Stadium for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, or watch from home, they should wear a Band-Aid over their nose – Justin Forsett style.

Forsett will play against the team that (for God knows what reason) cut him on March 11. He has gone on to be one of the NFL's best players this season, averaging a league-high 5.6 yards per carry among running backs and racking up 1,080 rushing yards (third-most in the NFL).

He's done most of that damage thanks to with a cut on the bridge of his nose, a physical sign of the battles the long-time backup has gone through.

Wouldn't it be cool to show Baltimore's love for Forsett by emulating his style?

Forsett told me that he's too stubborn to change his helmet, which would perhaps allow the cut to heal instead of busting it open every Sunday. He's had the Band-Aid ever since Week 4, which has grossed out his kids and baby boy.

At this point, it's taking on a life of its own. It's too late to change.

Ravens fan Kevin Sneed of Perry Hall kicked things off, and the movement has spread on Twitter. The #BandAidGang has been born.
