Everyone knew this was coming. The contract was too much for how he has performed of late. I think theres a chance they still restructure but I dont really care either way.

i see them picking a hb in the late 1st round or trade up in the early 2nd- the player will probably b a reach but michael bush comes to mind

Most likely trade Our 3rd rounder for Thomas Jones and your 4th rounder.

Not surprising. I expect the Panthers to do this with a couple of our guys too.

I don't Angelo is that keen on trading him (which probably means he won't be traded at all).

Last year he was apparently offered a 2nd and a 3rd (if I remember the link I'll post it) and insisted that he wanted a first, which is insane. This year is different though as I think the team is more open to trading him now that Benson has at least shown a little.

I'm the #1 TJ fan on the boards but a 2nd and a 3rd and he demanded a 1st that is a big laugh, the Bears should expect a 4th in return for him a 3rd is being generous. For his age and the fact that running back is the easiest position to find in the league he will not demand any more than a early 4th.

Thomas Jones is what the Ravens need.

Lewis was a weak spot for them last year. He's the one glaring weakness I saw.

Kevan Barlow got a 4th and he sucks.

Hell, Travis Henry got a 3rd. Jones should get a 3rd or they shouldn't move him at all. There's no point in getting ripped off for no reason.

I cant really find his place in the league. He hasnt been doing very well, a backup type performance, but he isnt old and still has that potential behind him. When you take into account his attitude, he's going to ask for starter money, something which I dont think most teams will pay him.

the problem with this guy is you dont really know where he is at right now. all of the past season he was playing with bone spurs and had to get numbing injections from week 8 on.

yeah our run game really wasn't that good. if we could have run the ball well then we would have been much better

Never really the same since his prison term

yeah he came back that year unprepared and then he was injured. and then this year he had bone spurs impairing his ability to make cuts. he may still have something but who knows?

maybe something happened in prison that caused him to not walk right? :wink: :wink:

i think that jmal is definitely not worth his contract and that he deserved to be cut. Thomas jOnes is a very good back but if anything like a second rounder was offered he would be traded in a heartbeat.

Why wouldn't the Ravens want Michael Turner over Thomas Jones? Turner is younger, bigger, more physical, cheaper, and has far less tread on his tires. In fact he is very much like Lewis before his ankle surgery.

they would love turner. in fact every ravens fan will love to have him but what is his price tag?

Scratch my post. Hot off the news wire, Turner is tendered for a 1st and 3rd which effectively takes him off the market. Sorry I rushed the point a bit.

damn. too bad, he is worth a lot, but that is just too much.

^ No it's not. Did you read the article? Keeping LT as healthy as possible is vital to his future. With the amount of cap space we have, this was the obvious move made by AJ. I would rather keep Turner for one more year than get anything in return now for the health of LT.

no i mean a 1st and a 3rd is too much to try to get him for the ravens. hes a damn good back and gives you guys two good RBs

Id hate that. Irons in the 2nd and Jarvis Moss/Anthony Spencer in the 1st.



I really think we will restructure Jamals deal and have him back. Apparently he wants to play here still and Ozzie Newsome wants him here also.

It is a lot but it was the right thing to do. That would be sweet if some team really gave. us a 1st and a 3rd for turner. If not, that's allright too.

it all depends on if he comes back in my mind. if he does then i think we wait on a RB and go Moss/Spencer in the 1st.

all i know is that ozzie will get it what ever the best value is.

Well Staley in the first is a must, but I say Pittman if we draft a RB.

I've watched plenty of Ravens games and hes still a pretty good back. He's not big enough to be a "pound it" back and truck people like Bus, but not fast enough to be a speed back. He takes way to many steps in the backfield and does not hit the hole hard enough. With some proper coaching, and heal back to 100% I think he could improve.

hes around 250 lbs so i think he has the size. hes a back that likes to grind down a defense

I don't think so... He must be confused.

I was hoping they'd keep him, I feel like he's one of the few things holding them back.

shut up. :)

for the future i think the ravens should always slick up the K ball for you guys now.

im a little afraid of the bengals. their wr.s are really good and they take advantage of our defense. they also were good at picking up our blitzes too well. i want to substitute Carson for B. Roth on some of those hits.

I dont think he is a "very poor mans" Bettis. Afterall he has had some much better seasons that the Bus ever had.

yes he did have a couple good seasons but the Bus always ran with such power and authority. jamal doesn't hit the hole like he used to and doesnt break tackles like he did. Jamal now seems like a shell of his former self. although he might still have some left in the tank.

omecool20
03-01-2007, 01:51 AM
I would advise Jamal to do a Bettis and feature himself as a third down back, primarily, and a change of pace. All he needs to do know is get healthy and well rested. The pounding that he got these past few years, really caught with him last season. Get some rest Jamal n come back better ! :D

All you did was add to what I said. Bettis was more consistent than Lewis however Lewis peaked at a higher level.

You know damn well that I have been against trading for Turner from the get go. Besides Jamal's coming back plus we got Mike Anderson and PJ Daniels. We need a good and sold offensive game plan.

Smith also ran with a lot of power for one thing. For another, that may seem true (the shifty, pass catching back fit), but it doesn't fit the character of his team. Billick has adapted his philosophy to fit his personel, which is defenseively driven. The result is he needs a big back is to wear down defenses and control the clock. It's not about his offense, it's about his defense. That's how he won the SB.
Anyways, I'm not sure how I feel on TJ for a third at this point, but it's a very nice option to have. I'd like to see what the draft brings us before we make any moves.

ok i think turner is really good, but i agree that we do need a better game plan.
