#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.

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...

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.

Wrong, the Jets were supposed to be a contender for a #1 pick before this season. With Sanchez done, Revis gone, and rookie Gino in with a buttload of rookies, the Jets were supposed to be a non entity this season, but as in season's past, the Jets have surprised the media critics and the NFL. That's hellufied coaching.


Wrong. Yesterday they were in the driver spot for a playoff spot and they had a piss poor effort. That was not great coaching. Donnt be a Rex groupie.

#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?

#74760 Just did our taxes

Posted by dc. on 06 April 2014 - 09:55 AM

Crav... no one disagrees that it's rude. But the point here is that it's not an offense or a rudeness worth being shot over. 


And yet, in Florida, people ARE getting shot over it. 


So, your "oh, they'd have to think twice" is resulting in exactly the opposite... Instead of thinking twice, people who are angry are able to quickly and WITHOUT THINKING fire at people they find "rude." 


Seriously, I can't tell if you think we're just talking hypotheticals or if you're just that dense. But there's a 16 year old dead for playing his music too loud at a gas station ... and in Florida all the guy had to do was say, "It made me afraid." Who in that case "should have thought twice?" 


There's a guy in Florida dead because the guy behind him was mad about his texting - during the previews, just to clarify. Once again, who there should have thought twice? Because in that case, the old man didn't think twice, he just fired.


But sure, give everyone a gun and it will certainly reduce our likelihood of committing crimes. Instead, it will make us all much quicker to shoot. People talk about arming teachers to prevent school shootings. Absurd. Schools see teachers throw chairs and curse out students on a regular basis - and students do much worse of course. What happens if there's a gun in those situations? 


#1 reason I'm not moving to Florida -- Crav is there and seems pretty clear he'd acquit my killer because "I should've thought twice" before bumping into someone in the men's room.

Imagining you spending most of your time drying glasses and talking about last night's fight on HBO.


I ignored Oldschool's post the other day (like I do all of his others), because there's just no sense in fighting a punching dummy. It just bounces back, time and time again--predictably so, but nevertheless.


Racist is as racist does.

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....

#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.

#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.
