  1. No, I'm saying he's not going to take as many of those hits as others would. And a lot of the hits he will take should be more glancing blows than squared-up destruction. There are running backs who have/had the same sort of deal going for them. Jackson will too.

    Smith is better than Webb.

    I would be fine with Judon in a rotational role... because that's what all five of Baltimore's pass-rushers should be in. Suggs, Judon, Smith, Bowser, and Williams are all good enough to see the field. Keeping a consistent rotation and having them fresh(er) on the field would be wonderful. It's really not that hard. Biggest obstacle is getting them off the field if the opposing offense is in hurry-up but there are plenty of instances in every game where they are not.
  4. Jackson is a vastly different runner than Newton or Wilson though. Griffin too. He's fast/athletic enough to avoid defenders being able to square him up for a bigger hit. Those other guys aren't. Lamar is an elite athlete and not just for the quarterback position. The parameters of his playing style are different from others because he's that much better and more capable of it.

    But yeah lets cut Jimmy Smith after this season...

    Bryant singing now would be kind of odd, but not bad. Him and Crabtree providing size on the outside that Flacco hasn't gad since... Boldin (when he wasn't in the slot)? With Brown and Snead working the slot. The latter two going out wide to attack deep in that area when needed. Makes sense. Screws over Chris Moore though. I'd like to see him get reps in a real, planned offensive role. Wouldn't mean much for Scott or Lasley since they probably aren't getting real playing time this season regardless. Not sure what it would mean for Hurst and Andrews but probably nothing terrible. They will get reps at tight end, it isn't like the Ravens would be going full 4/5 receiver spread all the time. I'm envisioning an offense with a lot of options, none great but serviceable, which would work for Flacco. He can spread it around fairly well to all of his targets. And that's kind of what you want if the alternative is his lock-on syndrome. But... this hasn't happened yet. Just kind of rolled off the fingers.

    Most Eagles fans say he's a liability in coverage. Kendricks was pumped up as a fast/athletic linebacker prospect that should be able to cover... not one that actually can or has at the NFL level. He's small too so his ability against tight ends is limited regardless.

    However, he's also Richie Incognito. I'd rather not.

    Building an elite run-stopping defense is building an ineffective defense against the most dangerous teams in the league. If you expect the Jaguars to sit atop the AFC for a number of years it might make sense. Seriously. That's not the direction I'm interested in the Ravens taking. Neither should you or anyone else. Pittsburgh's most potent weapon is still their passing game too. Bell is a monster, but one you can live with. At least on the ground... but linebackers/multiple linebacker sets aren't stopping him catching passes. Mosley can cut weight without anything else happening on the roster. And he should. I'm not really much of a believer that he deliberately added weight though. That's just the result of being a full-time football player in the NFL. Sure he can lose some again and reshape his body, but that would actually be on purpose as oppose to what has happened.

    What does Hankins bring to the team that Williams and Pierce don't? Nothing, and there really isn't room for three of those guys on one roster/rotation. If you like any kind of explosiveness from your defensive line at least. So Dean Pees would like that actually. Chris Wormley is sorta the DE/5-tech version of that kind of player too. Baltimore has absolutely no need in that regard. Still don't buy Lewis at center. Especially in regards to this upcoming season. Same goes for Siragusa with all the time he has missed and probably won't be quite full-speed by training camp either. If the Ravens don't sign or trade for somebody the opening day starter at that spot will be Skura, Bozeman, or Thompson. I'm definitely not one opposed to gambling on the unknown.... but that's scary. Not really concerned about ILB. If a lack of talent there just means more dime being played that's a good thing. As long as their health holds up the secondary has a lot of players that should be seeing the field consistently. Utilize that. Bring Jefferson up. Bring Weddle up. Levine did well there last season and Clark was interesting. If Nacua makes the team he's the guy we actually want back at FS. That is the type of defense you want in the NFL right now. Not sets with two ILBs on the field 95% of the time.
  11. Cowherd is awful regardless of what he's talking about. ESPN, and especially ESPN Radio, is much better off without him.

    Your disgust for Allen is impressive. You would think he's the Hayden Hurst of running backs or something.

    There are two "sources" from that article, but one is just quoting the other which is this: So where was that news from yesterday?
