  1. Joe Flacco has a hip injury

    There was never really a concern of that. Flacco was going to be the starting for as long as he gave them the best chance to win. This was still the case, so this injury is no way good news. This from the original Lamar to the Ravens hopeful on this forum.
  2. If McCarthy and Harbaugh get fired, what next for them?

    This is not true. In fact, Bisciotti said the opposite: "He's under as much pressure than probably he's ever been in his life, and I expect him to keep his chin up and take his positivity and his talents and make the most of the season," Bisciotti said. "I may as well replace him now if I tell him to make the playoffs or you're out of town next year. That's not the way we run business here." The national media believes this Harbaugh hot-seat story a lot more than the those that follow the team; they are pulling from the same quotes, but it seems like the national media doesn't have time to read/listen to the whole statements from the the press conferences they are quoting. I think Harbaugh is a top tier coach. The Ravens roster isn't bad, there's a lot of "good" players, but with the seasons Mosley, Jimmy Smith, WIlliams, etc are having... there really isn't a great player on the team. Is there a top 100 player on this team? 150? It's not like Harbaugh is overseeing an all-star team that is producing like a .500 team. My feeling watching this team, is not that the coaching is holding them back. There are tangible weaknesses of the roster that need addressing. I think it's totally unfair to lump him in with a guy coaching a HOF QB in his prime. Kind of a much easier job there...

    I doubt it'd even be discussed, and yes, 2nd contract running backs don't live up to their contracts. OTOH, I don't believe money/cap space is an actual issue that keeps teams from winning. Lacking playmakers does. So, it's nice to think about.
  4. John Harbaugh on the hot seat with the Ravens

    Along the same line, Sean Payton had 3 straight 7 win seasons (with DREW BREES!) They hit on an amazing draft class... and right back to the top of the league. Saints fans must be pretty thrilled all those moving on from Sean Payton reports didn't materialize.
  5. 2018 CFB/2019 Draft Prospects

    I'd LOVE to have a great do-it-all RB to pair with LJ8. That route running RB is a necessity and would be even harder to defend with Jackson in the backfield. He could be our McCaffrey.
  6. John Harbaugh on the hot seat with the Ravens

    Pollard did NOT leave on good terms for whatever reason (very uncommon for ex-Ravens). He was going after Harbs immediately after the SB season.
  7. Random Ravens Thoughts: New Forum Edition

    Yea, that's not a thing. The signing bonus portion of his contract is a sunk cost for us and would not be carried over to a team that traded for him. He's got basically around a 20M a year salary for up to (at the team's discretion) 3 more years. With a salary cap at near $180M and likely to rise, Flacco's contract is not on the top 20 list of concerns we should have. https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/baltimore-ravens/joe-flacco-4000/ Alex Smith got traded for a quality young corner and a 3rd round pick AND he needed a fresh 4/$94M with $55M contract that is a lot more of a commitment https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/washington-redskins/alex-smith-3337/ So yea, I absolutely consider Flacco to have positive value. If a contender with a bad QB situation could give him a better set of protection/receivers/running game, he'd have interest. Or even someone who want a stopgap, competent starter, like the Cardinals tried to do with Bradford at similar cost or Broncos with Keenum.

    NFL media decided in the offseason, that Brees should have an MVP by now.... and he's totally deserving it, so both pieces are there. If it's remotely close between him and Mahomes, they'll give it to Brees... cuz Mahomes has so many years ahead of him to win MVP.
  9. Week 9 GDT

    He got into an awkward as F twitter battle with Josh Norman recently. I'm not saying he's the worst person in the NFL. I'm just saying someone's probably coaching him up real good to keep his personality under wraps so he can run the quiet, professional, unselfish, team-first WR bit. And I'm not even saying players should even go for that. I just think he's acting.
  10. Week 9 GDT

    Michael Thomas has really outed himself as an idiot this season ,albeit a hyper talented idiot. He and his team had a good thing going with him being quiet.
  11. Week 9 GDT

    They made Justin Tucker miss an extra point. They aren't losing no more.
  12. Week 9 GDT

    Ben Watson is 37
  13. Week 9 GDT

    Ah.. didn't know that. That's dumb... No incentive to slide then.
  14. Week 9 GDT

    He wasn't sliding. He dived forward. He would have had to have been touched.
  15. Week 9 GDT

    Uh... so why wasn't that a fumble?
