ERU prepare for the rath of BigDawg, I remember in my elementary school days I was a big Mike Bordick fan, I was in 3rd/4th grade at the time and I actually cried when Mike was traded to the Mets. I dont know why I liked him so much he wasnt that good.

In the Derrick Brooks Ray Lewis thread people are saying Bart Scott, Adalius Thomas, and some even said T-sizzle are more valuable last year then Ray. I came back and said that Bart and Suggs are not as good as Ray. I was wondering what are all your thoughts about that?

Agreed. Suggs is a great player, but he's not in Ray's class. Neither is Scott. They are all far more athletic than him which makes them seem like better players. But no one has the instincts of Ray. I mean Ray's the one callin the play in the huddle and making at the line adjustments and telling his guys where to go. Adalius is a freak of nature athlete and is very instinctual as well, as he is a student of the game like Ray. His blend of athleticism and smarts made him a better player than Ray last year, but I don't think he could lead a Defense better than Ray. We really were stacked at LB last year.

Im going for Cal. My weekend will be arrive at hotel Saturday (an hour away from Cooperstown). Drive to Cooperstown. Go To Hall Of Fame itself, see the Aberdeen Ironbirds play the Oneonta Tigers in rigorous New York Penn League action, stay in Cooperstown some more, Drive an hour back to hotel. Wake up at 3 am, drive back to Cooperstown, arrive at induction site, camp out until the induction begins at 1:30, than proceed to pass out.

So ERU, did you want the dinette set and the brand new Kia Rio or an hour with all of the Barker beauties?

I'll take the Kia Rio, cause I won't lie the hour with the Barker beauties would be more like the 5 minutes with the Barker beauties. So I'll just take the Kia and drive it up the Avenue and get some classy White Marsh snootch.

Yea but you know we wouldn't pick up a good young qb we like the old work horses there cheaper....and Brees is a pocket guy they dont work here...they gotta constantly keep on the move here....

No we didn't, we were locked into McNair. You assume Brees would fit into our system and make us better but you don't know that and sound foolish in making that assessment. Brees would not be a Pro Bowler in our system which isn't designed around the QB like he is down in New Orleans. Stop making ridiculous posts for the love of everything.

07-27-2007, 09:19 PM
You do realize I never said anything about him being a pro bowler because he probably wouldn't have what I said was we could have won a super bowl with him, I was just thinking about that because I remember he was a FA and we were looking for a QB and I didn't remember if we showed interest in him or not.

I wouldn't say it is rediculous we were 2 games from the superbowl and lost to the champs 15-6, and had so many chances if McNair would look down field, it would be foolish to think it would be rediculous that we would have won the super bowl had we Brees, but that's all moot point, we don't have him, I wanted us to go after Culpepper last season. http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/forum/images/icons/icon10.gif

This is what I'm talking about stupid, the Ravens would not have changed the offense for Brees, they didn't for McNair! Brees may have made better decisions, then again he could have dropped dead on the kickoff. Drop this idiotic subject!

I have faith in him now because when Billick was calling plays he did look fairly decent, our o-line was clicking, we had a big streak of no sacks allowed until Boller trip and a d-lineman dived on him. Plus he did lead us to our best record ever. Also it was only his 1st year in the system. Plus with his check downs McGahee can turn 2 yard check downs into 7-8 yard gains which will help the offense.

So in other words your swayed by the media as opposed to forming your own opinion? Or are you just waiting for the next big free agent out there and put your faith in him and blame us not winning because we didn't sign him? McNair is crap!

Ravens1991
07-29-2007, 12:34 PM
so everybody that supports a QB that had come from behind victories and led us to our best record ever is a media drone and can't form their own opinion about QB. Yea he won't put up flashy # but he has shown to be a winner. You didn't understand my post about Drew Brees I was bored and I was just wondering what you all think would have happened. It was just a what if question.

TR is actually one of my good friends, he got suspended because he had 2 infractions. 1 for making a Chris Beniot joke and one because he he said "Thats the sh*t" Instead of letting it automatically be censored as " Thats the ****" Which I honestly think is stupid, you can use context clues to figure out whats being said anyway. We mind as well crack down on people using the censors because you can figure out any cuss word pretty easily.

I remember one time we went up to New England and it was the game Boller just scrambled out and dropped the football and then the TV announcer said that Billick said "the thing I like about Boller is he never makes the same mistake twice." And Sharpe bashed him for it. I think after our 6-10 season at one point Sharpe said we should fire Billick.

People can say a lot about Billick's Offense and Billick can't develop a QB or Billick is overrated. The bottom line is we never get blown out, he keeps the Team focused on the game, he develops Head Coaches (Jack Del Rio, Mike Nolan, Marvin Lewis), he manages ego better than anyone in the league hands down, Works with the Front Office better then anyone in the league and he is great with the Fans. Billick's job is not to develop players thats the assistant coaches job to develop the talent, Billick needs to manage the entire ordeal and orchestrate a game plan to help us win and stay competitive. If you can find another HC that does that as well as he does then bring him in and see if he can do better... till then Lets not 2nd guess Ozzie and the Front Office and let them make the choice to who is going to run the Team !

Good luck this week in what should be a pillowfight between two equally unproductive offenses. The difference maker however is the fact that you have much more consistent players on defense.

Jonathan Ogden

If Jonathan Ogden is not able to play in the Baltimore Ravens' Nov. 5 game at the Pittsburgh Steelers, the 10-time Pro Bowl tackle might not play again this season, Coach Brian Billick said Monday.

Ogden has been recovering from a hyperextended big toe that he initially injured last season and aggravated in the season opener. He has been practicing with the team in recent weeks, but has been unable to play in a game. If he still can't play after the bye (Oct. 28), then the Ravens might consider placing him on injured reserve.

Chris McAlister

Chris McAlister said he has been told by the Ravens that he will miss three weeks with a strained right knee, but the cornerback wouldn't rule out returning for the Pittsburgh Steelers game on Nov. 5.

McAlister acknowledged the knee has bothered him the past couple of weeks.

I know everyone wants a corner and at this point I can't blame em, but I've said for a bit now that I love Derrick Martin and I think if he gets his shot he could shine. I know the odds are probably against him but I just want him to get a shot to possibly become a starter. Andre Woodson would be a godsend, but as bad as we may look right now, I don't think we'll be that bad. I think Woodson and Brohm will fight it out to be the first quarterback taken, but both will end up top 10. I would love Matt Ryan in the first round, as of now I think we'll find ourselves in the 15-20 range, and that could be where his stock lies. 2nd round I'd like to see us go for a receiver, a guy with size and physicality who can give us some stability as a 4th receiver, because I'm not sure about Yamon and Darling will be gone. If Limas Sweed somehow slips with his season ending injury that would be amazing.

I agree, I think running back should be addressed with one of our top 3 picks. A reliable backup is definitely needed. Musa may be gone next year, along with Mike, who I don't think is garbage but is 34. P.J. is just an enigma and I don't see Cory Ross contributing in the RB department. I actually wouldn't mind us going for a back as early as the second round, kinda like the Bengals did with Kenny Irons. He has to be a good value though. It's more likely that we look at a running back second day, somewhere around the 4th round. I like Justin Forsett as a possible suitor. He's a tough runner and I just think he could be one of those guys that is a great NFL reserve back, i.e. Kevin Faulk. Who knows, with all the underclassmen running backs that could enter this draft, we could find ourselves a great steal on day 2. It'll be interesting but I agree, I want us to go after a running back in the draft who can be a stable #2 for a long time.

I would flip as well, there's no way we spend a first on a RB. But a second is possible, especially if there's a guy that's a great value. I think Musa is gone next year, and I'm not too unhappy about it. I like Musa, but it wouldn't pain me one bit to see him go. A reserve running back is extremely important in today's game. Wheter your back is injury prone or not. You need a guy who can come in when ur #1 is tired, and not lose a whole lot. When Musa is in, we lose a lot. McGahee's my favorite player, but he's not invinceable. We saw him go in for an IV at Buffalo. We need a back that can come in and spell him and not lose a whole lot. Since we don't have a 3rd rounder, I want us to take a back in the 4th round or earlier. One of my favorite picks would be Felix Jones in the second, who I feel is very underrated and may be one of the top 3 backs for the draft should he come out.

Ravens1991
10-26-2007, 07:27 PM

This is how I feel our top 5 needs go:

1. Defensive Line: Pryce is a force but he's not getting any younger and the depth is very questionable.

2. Wide Receiver: We need a guy who can come in and give us some stability as a 4th receiver. A physical player to complement guys like Clayton and Mason.

3. Running Back: For the reasons I already stated.

4. Quarterback: I honestly don't know how this will work out, Boller could have a future with us, all I know is if one of the big 3 (Brohm, Woodson, Ryan) falls to us in the first, they will be extremely hard to pass on.

5. Cornerback: As I've said a hundred times, I really hope we don't go corner early, because I think Derrick Martin's gonna be a stud if he gets a shot. But you can't deny corner is a bit of a concern.

Add Erik Ainge to that list. He's going to be a very good NFL QB. If either of the 4 are there when we pick, you can't pass any of them up. I think the only one that will be around when we pick is Ainge. I see us picking in the late teens-mid 20's.

Yeah Edwards is a guy who I wouldn't have minded in that spot, but to be honest I feel his play and the impact he's had with the Bills has been overrated a bit and I'm not sure if I'd want him as the future guy. Yanda wasn't a bad pick. I think he's been ok, he's a good run blocker, just needs a bit of work on pass blocking. Plus he's pretty valuable. He's like a super sub in a way. It looks like Jared Gaither and Adam Terry should be the future at left and right tackle, but both haven't been lighting it up so Yanda could beat one of them out, and if he doesn't he's the primary backup. Not to mention that he'll be the primary backup at guard so if anyone outside of our center goes down, we know Yanda can step in and we won't miss much. I liked the pick of Yanda in April and I still do.

We have too many holes on this team to take projects on the 1st day in this draft, and hopefully Ozzie and company realize this and make some offseason deals to get more picks and address these holes.

If not then the 2008 season maybe more frustrating then this season has been.

True we have alot of needs and not enough draft picks to fill them but Im sure Ozzie will realize and make some trades.

As for McNabb, Id rather give Kyle Boller the starting job and see what he can do rather than start a aging veteran with not much left in him. I would only like to bring in McNabb if we draft a QB round 1 and bring McNabb in to mentor him.(Ryan or Woodson)

McNabb kind of scares me at this point, ala a Steve McNair. McNabb has definitely regressed since the Super Bowl year and has definitely shown he needs a full compliment of weapons on offense to be successful and we know we don't have that. I know I called the McNabb to Baltimore thing after the Eagles drafted Kolb with their first pick this year but now I'd be really tentative about bringing him in.

I agree, I think we start over and build around a QB we take in the 1st this year. If we get McNabb it will just be us trying to squeak out another contender year but I believe our window is shut.

I'm tired of this "window" talk quite frankly. All it does is build expectations for players and fans and in the NFL too many things can go wrong to expect to only be able to compete for a 2-3 year "window". We have some guys in place at certain positions to be a solid team for years to come and Matt Stover is going to kick until he's 67 or something. We need to rid ourselves of some bloated contracts, draft a few impact studs, get a completely new offensive system and see where 2008 takes us.

Ravens1991
11-23-2007, 04:00 PM
about our new offensive system, I could actually see us developing a nice offense in the future. We have 2 stud WR, a O-line with good potential perhaps we re-work Heap deal and he gets healthy he is a quality TE and we got McGahee, we draft a young QB and if he develops to a above average QB we will have a nice offense.

Lets stop saying Clayton and DWill are "studs" until they actually prove it on the field. We as Ravens fans always overhype our players and this is no different. I mean Mason and Clayton are basically the same receiver, DWill is still unpolished, Darling had one decent game in 3 years, its not like we're set in the receiver department.

Yeah I'm not high at all on bringing McNabb here. Like you said it could turn into a bit of a McNair situation. Not only will he cost a boatload, but I'm just not sure how good he is or would be with us.

The scenario that I want to see and I think we will probably see is us take one of the big three quarterbacks in the first (Brohm if I had my choice). Then you let Kyle start for a year and hand it over to the draft pick when Boller's contract is up. If we are unable to get any of the big 3 in the first, I think you look at the free agent market for a guy who is fairly young who can give Boller some competition for that #1 spot. If I had my choice I'd shell out a pick for Matt Cassell of the Pats.

BigDawg819
11-24-2007, 07:36 PM
My only problem with Cassell is he's never been "the guy" in college or in the pros. Yes he's had incredible talent in front of him at both places but still that doesn't mean he can be "the guy".

This is true but I personally see him as a low risk high reward type guy. Yes we'd likely have to give up a decent pick for him, but nothing outrageous and if he doesn't work out as we planned, we have a nice backup. I think we've seen how important that is this year. If he's good enough to be the top backup at QB for the best team I've ever seen, I've got to think he's good enough for us. Also keep in mind that I favor this situation if we are unable to grab one of the big 3.

Come this offseason, we really need to part ways with Derrick Mason. While he's still a valuable commodity on the offense, him being here is curtailing the production and overall development of Mark Clayton. Clayton is our future and is more or less a Derrick Mason clone, so with that said we need him to step up and take over that role. With Clayton assuming the #1 slot, DWill can then be #2, we resign Devard Darling, draft a big, physical receiver (my personal favorites would be DeCody Fagg or Marcus Monk) and my surprise move is moving Todd Heap to WR full time as a #3 or #4. That way we can leave Sypniewski on the field as our full time TE and have a more explosive and balanced offensive presence on the field.

Heap is too slow to be a wideout, Quinn is good but you are severely overrating him if you'd be willing to move a top 10 TE in the game and make him a useless backup wideout. Heap doesn't have the lateral quickness to get open on a regular basis against a DB. If you were so crazy for Quinn that might as well just trade Heap.

I want the best offense possible out there and frankly Heap as a TE is becoming a liability with all the poundings he's taking and him getting hurt all year. You complain about anyone who knocks Heap, why not get over your mancrush on him? He is a disciplined route runner and he's most effective as a over the middle target, a perfect fit for a slot receiver.

I explained it a couple of posts ago but for you I'll do it again. Heap is a precise route runner and most effective as an over the middle target. Thats a perfect fit for a slot receiver and since Boller will likely be starting next year it makes sense to install an offense he's comfortable in which would be a spread offense. That way we would be running an offense with alot of 3 and 4 wide sets and still utilizing Heap in the offense and not getting him as banged up as he would if he was still a TE.

ECU was up 38-31 with about 1:30 left. ECU had the ball and was about to enter Boise territory. They were milking the clock and Johnson fumbled. Boise returned the fumble 50 yards for a touchdown and tied it up. ECU ended up winning 41-38 but it was a crazy development.

As for Johnson possibly coming to the Ravens, I wouldn't mind it if it's one the second day, but Johnson will probably go 1st day with his athleticism and upside, probably 2nd round. A few weeks ago I would have been happy to go RB in round 2 but with these past few games it's clear that we cannot afford to RB that early, with the problems at corner and with our pass rush.

The only way I see Chester being able to develop into a quality starting C is for him to truly have hold of the job and with Flynn still in the fold thats just not happening. Maybe Chris can develop into a starter but then again maybe he's just quality backup at G and C. To me this is a make or break season coming up for him.

what during the pro bowl practice Chad Johnson was wearing a Ravens hat? either way CIN wont trade a top 5 WR to their rival but one can only dream.

i really dont think we have the cap space anyways and hes definitely gonna want a ton more then we'd be able to give him. Would be pretty sweet though...

It's really no big deal. Players wear different teams hats all the time at the pro bowl. For instance Ed Reed was wearing Peyton Manning's helmet during a practice.

Calais Campell DE from da U just ran a 5.04 40 in the combine, do you think he could be there at our second? if so would you take him? I personally would deeply consider it.

Eh, no from me. I wouldn't touch Calais in the first 2 rounds at this point. Any hype he has now is from the way he played in his junior year and the fact that he's 6'8". He's still a raw prospect who seriously needs to refine his pass rushing skills, and with his combine performance it's clear he's not even the athlete that we were expecting.
