#73689 Ravens Will Unveil Ray Lewis Statue Outside M&T Bank Stadium Before 2014...

Posted by papasmurfbell on 25 March 2014 - 06:56 AM

I have always thought that the statues of HOFers should go down that walk between CY and M&T.  The O's would be on the stretch from CY and the Colts/Ravens towards that stadium.  It could be the walk of legends.

#74318 Ray Rice Arrested

Posted by dc. on 01 April 2014 - 02:52 PM

My biggest chuckle is the reference to mods here like this is an ESPN board w one million users and these mysterious mods who zap unsuspecting posters like big brother in some totalitarian state.

The biggest modding I've ever done here is moving a post or two and sending a PM asking folks to behave. I'm like the freaking bartender at brunch.

But whatever straw man you wanna fight...

#71123 Now That The Dust Has Settled .......

Posted by vmax on 13 February 2014 - 04:37 PM

Don't quite understand why Mods here discourage long threads. One would think that a sites' value is measured by the activity it attracts. The better sites attract many more views and many more replies. This site does not. Are the Mods restricting activity on this site because they do not wish to become bigger and better?


14271.jpg  Good thing that you asked. We spend untold hours and very large amounts of money a week trying to figure out how we can remain a small and obscure site. Once a thread topic gets more than 2 replies we scramble to see how we can stop it. At the top of our agenda items this week we are currently deadlocked on the issue of warning posters if they post more than 2-3 posts a week. Half of us are leaning toward 2. Using the Ignore button on everybody is another action item.

Yeah ....the comradery they would have grown over that weekend in April could have meant Torrey would've went up and fought for that ball.

#87167 2014 Draft Class making an impact

Posted by Spen on 13 November 2014 - 11:13 PM

The Ravens have 11 players injured or out for the year. That is a lot of teams roster gone.That's either the most of any team or 2nd most.  It's a huge dent in team depth.
So I read this article and he's right. This was one very good draft...

Mosley, Brooks, Jerrnigan, Gilmore, Talifarro, Urschel and Campanaro. Then the undrafted rookies Hurst, Jacobs and Orr. 
These guys are filling the gaps and helping to hold it all together. "Next man up"...Mr Opportunity has called and these guys are responding.
It's a long season, it's a grind. Sure it would be great if Pita and everybody else were 100% healthy and playing and the Ravens had more wins and lopsided victories but that's not reality.
Reality is that it's football on Sundays in Baltimore and we have a lot of good players to watch who are giving everything they have on the field. :gorave:

What does this have to do with Joe and/or his contract?

I wouldn't think an offensive system would be set in stone a week after an new OC is hired in the first week of February. I wouldn't think anyone intelligent would think that either. Oh wait.

#67653 How Is Joe Flacco Playing?

Posted by dc. on 10 December 2013 - 02:43 PM

Have never been a part of this thread and hesitate to enter the stupidity that seems to surround it.


But a question to Geronimo/Rasta - please go look at other threads, especially the game threads. I see a lot of Joe criticism. I see a lot of "tired of Joe" criticism. I see a lot of people blaming the picks on him (as most should be). I see a lot of people blaming the sacks on him and slow decision making.


If you're not hearing/reading/seeing that - then sure, you'd think he gets all love and no hate. But you're ignoring a lot of the conversation. ESPN has even written articles in the past (and recently) about how Joe is the most loved/hated player in the city. Every time I go to a bar, half the people tell me Joe's a bum. 


Meanwhile, on a different note, I have to 100% disagree with the thought that "a good quarterback can overcome" the obstacles of a bad defense, bad line, bad receivers, bad run game, etc. Two main thoughts here - I think Peyton and Brady have had to deal with poor run games and rotating receiving corps, but I don't think they have ever had a line as inconsistent as ours. I would also argue their run games were not bad, they were just unused because of the quality of the line and pass games. The Pats' run game is consistently low in the rankings, but not ineffective in game. The Ravens are presently dealing with a disastrously bad run game. Simultaneously, if you watch Brady, he makes some great throws after 5-6-7 seconds in the pocket. When Joe gets that time, we see great plays. But how often does he get that much time?


I guess I don't understand how we can blame Joe for Ray's 2.7 ypc. Or Dickson's dropped passes. Or Oher's penalties. Or McKinney's missed blocks. Should he be able to "overcome" that with other plays? Perhaps....

#65280 Ray Lewis hit it on the head

Posted by deeshopper on 06 November 2013 - 06:46 PM

For some reason, I keep reading this thread title as "Ray Lewis Hit On The Head".


Sure, there is a lack of leadership, but I also agree with the player that said Lewis' statement is a little self-serving.

#64724 a "debate"

Posted by thesteelhurtin on 30 October 2013 - 12:54 PM

What do you think you're doing right now, Goober ?.....I wasn't talking to you or about you but you feel a need to set me straight...
Child Please !!!.....Read the whole thread, you'll see who attacked who....They just swatted at the wrong guy this time, that's all...
But please try and explain how it is a Pittstown trolls biz on a Ravens board for us, Einstein ..

I'm over here because I was invited here and unlike you a few people like having me here. Seriously I don't think one person would notice or care if you just went away in fact most would celebrate. So what does that say that they would rather talk with a "pittstown troll" rather then a fellow raven fan. Also you are going to get onto me about spelling maybe you should look at your last sentence.

#53210 Feeling a little bad for

Posted by RavenMad on 15 February 2013 - 07:34 AM

I feel bad for Todd Heap. He was drafted with the 31st pick of the draft after we won our 1st Superbowl and then had to endure Boller hanging him out to dry for most of his career and then he is gone a couple of seasons and the Ravens win their 2nd superbowl.


I wonder how good Todd would have been with Joe throwing him the ball all that time and Caldwell calling the plays.

Posted by vmax on 12 January 2015 - 04:40 PM

Why woudl I be joking that Joe and the guys he throws to should work out all the bugs in their game?  Other than Daniels and SS nobody was totally on the same page with Joe.  I think it is from Daniels being experienced in this system and Smith being a consummate pro and being able to adapt.  Working with guys is more for the guys Joe throws to than him.  


I would say Unitas, Berry, and Moore knew what they were talking about.


i know all about Unitas and Berry working out and that was evenings after practice. They had jobs in the off season.


1. There is more than enough opportunity for them to get down timing and chemistry during OTA's and Training camp....plus the 5 day grind each week between games (another 16 weeks worth).

2. What can they accomplish on some high school football field? In a few hours? There's nobody to press and defend or rush. How nice would it be for Torrey or somebody to blow an ACL stepping in a hole/divot on some non NFL field.

2A....and I don't want Joe unwinding and throwing all out until his arm strength is 100%. It would bee too cool for him to blow something out because he is not in shape.

3. Joe's been throwing the ball to Torrey for 4 years. The reps have to be in the thousands. Thousands of them.

4. Torrey has hit his ceiling. He's not going to get better. What you see is what you get with Torrey. He has a significant body of work to make it plain to see the weakness in his game. He'll never be a #1. He's not tough enough. He can't break press coverage. He has a limited route tree where he's an effective weapon. He disappears.

5.Yea...All that 2 hours on one or 2 Saturdays in the Spring can accomplish is to shut your yap that this is all they need to be great. If they don't do it, then this will be your great insight as to why Torrey drops passes, has trouble getting open unless it's a go route,  doesn't see the ball, doesn't fight for the ball and still catches with his chest. 

6. 4 Friggn'n Years of Torrey running the same route and Joe throwing the same pass...and a couple of Saturday afternoons in the off season will change everything.


51 NFL players got more catches than Torrey this year. 51. 42 averaged more yards per catch. 42.

What kind of dent in these numbers do you see a couple of Saturdays in the off season playing pitch and catch will do?
