  • Landry open field tackling isnt that good. He is a in box SS at 220. His coverage is sketchy. I honestly dont want him back considering we have Zbi. It is unfortanete because he was a lot better before that neck injury in 2008;

    • Great vs. the run, wasn't as aggressive as he was before his neck injury but he was still a force. 2nd on the team in tackles behind Ray.

      Coverage is another story though. Zbikowski IMO was a lot better in that part of the game.

        Its tough for me to forgive him for that and that horrible tackle attempt, then tripping Ray Lewis in the process. He also really had a terrible tackle attempt against ATL

        That video reminds me how dumb Mattison was as a DC

          He's not likely to be re-signed right? I get the sense he's gonna ask more then what he's worth to your team. He's obviously not a guy you can build around, but if you were starting Alan Ball and Gerald Sensabaugh he'd have to be an upgrade. Just not sure how much of 1 and if it's worth the price tag.
          The other posters pretty much covered it. He's not a very good tackler in the open field and if you have him in coverage on anybody but a TE you're in trouble. Against the run he's very good and can tackle at the LOS. America made a good point in that he's has a good feel for the game and I think he actually has decent ball-skills. He's a SS only for sure.

          I'm not sure where the $5 mil. a year figure came from but I think we'll let him walk unless we're able to keep him as a RFA.

          • Thanks for the responses guys, I knew I could get a good read on him here. I was a huge fan before the neck injury, after he came back I hadn't watched him as much. It makes me leary because we require both safeties to cover quite a bit with so much blitzing, and then I have to consider Landy got to play with Ed Reed roaming the entire back half of the secondary.


            He wouldn't have that here. Then again, I keep telling myself it's FA, your not gonna get a longterm answer, just a stop gap solution more often then not.


            I have heard alot of good things about Zibby though, I'll have 2 look out for him next season.

              "Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent SS Dawan Landry may look for a contract that would pay him $5 million per season once free agency begins." - It's KFFL. My bad, I glanced at it earlier that day and thought I read he was looking for a contract that size. But I'm sure he's gonna get a nice payday either way.

              • Apparently Kindle has been cleared to play according to Sergio himself. He said he was cleared in January, I guess we kept it quiet as a draft tactic.

                • Good move keeping it quiet for the draft. If they already knew he was back the I can understand not going after a pass rusher in the draft. I'm really hoping for big things from him. Just someone who can get after the QB opposite Suggs.

                    • Ravens DC Chuck Pagano indicated that he plans to use No. 27 overall pick Jimmy Smith like the Jets do Darrelle Revis, allowing Smith to shadow opposing No. 1 wide receivers.
                      Pagano gave a glowing review of Smith, and isn't wasting any time. "You're gonna match up with everyone's finest," Pagano told Smith. "We've had elite shutdown corners in the past, and we just got the next one. The next great Raven cover corner." The Ravens don't have any other surefire starting cornerbacks under contract for 2011, so Smith will be thrust into the No. 1 role.
                      I'm just praying that Pagano is gonna be an aggressive DC and that J. Smith is going to be the great corner he has the potential to be.

                      • you cant get less agressive then Mattison. rushing a 34 line and having everyone play soft zone is probably the dumbest thing I have ever seen on a football field no debate. So we will be making progress with Pagano

                          great read on Flacco.

                          • #5 is the most important part to me. He is still very young and has only 3 years experience. He will continue to get better and will be able to take advantage of the weapons around him and his own unique tools.

                            I think the problem with his perception around the league is that people showered him with praise after his rookie year (undue praise IMO), and then were shocked that he wasn't some all world QB the next year. I have seen him grow in bits and pieces over time. In no way has he plateaued.

                            I'm very happy with Flacco as our QB. We could be in a lot worse shape back there. Just remember Boller and McNair.

                              Glad to see Flacco recognizes one of our greatest weaknesses. Hopefully Cam will listen.

                              • That is good to see, but i think that may shove the stick up Camerons ass even deeper.



                                Also I read in the baltimore sun the other day that Ellerbe has fallen asleep in some team meetings, rarely takes notes and has shown up late to home games before. I could see why McClain gets more time over him with that.
