All solid questions oldno82.

On offense the Ravens have too much to prove before I can call this a legit playoff- contender.

I do think the offense will be better than last years 21st scoring offense.

All I hear on Flacco is good. Motivated, running sprints, working out real hard....I think Joe is on a mission.

But what about those around Joe?

We won't know about this line until game 4 and they are the key to success or failure.

Same for the running game and receivers.

Will Greg Roman make a difference in the running game and team commitment to run?

Let's count on Parity to make this season real interesting.  :gorave:

Yep, the defense is looking good both short term and long term. I don't think we'll have to worry about it for several years.

 

But the offense...who's going to protect Flacco? Who's the 'go to' receiver? Is Terrance West really an answer at running back?

 

That's what has me concerned. Right now I'm thinking 8-8 subject to change depending on what Ozzie does for the offense in the weeks ahead.

No West is not the answer, not a bad guy to have around but full time carry a team, no. Just me but I they were/are counting on Kenneth Dixon. Lorenzo Taliaferro is a good back-up. And don't forget Javorius "Buck" Allen. Keep in mind teams stopped drafting RB. Wasn't it just last year or the year before there was a RB taken in top ten for a very long time.

 

LT seem to be looking good last season, Stanley seems to have much upside. Hurst at this time look to be on the other side. Yanda still out there smashing along. Let the rookies fight it out. There is that date out there when teams can sign guy without it costing compensatory picks. I look for a center and maybe WR.

 

Also keep in mind this team is loaded at TE.

 

My biggest worry of the coming season is Joe and if the fear is gone

We have seen where Joe is ready to go basically every yr the last 4 and he only showed up with Kubes.  He is only a game mang and unless that OL is destroying in the trenches Joe will let the offense down.

Max, I think the biggest problem on offense is the center and right tackle positions. Hurst is a below average RT and there's no legitimate center even on the team 

 

I still think they should pick up Mangold to play C. I don't know what anybody can do now about the RT.

These speculation on bringing in 30 year old Blount....

 

 

 

The Baltimore Ravens turned back the clock this year by investing heavily on defense in free agency and in the draft. How can the Ravens continue their old-school offseason?

Sign running back LeGarrette Blount.

He's the hard-hitting, battering-ram big back who can return the punch to Baltimore's running game. Blount led the NFL with 18 rushing touchdowns last season, and he gained more rushing yards (1,161) than any back to hit free agency this season...http://www.espn.com/...egarette-blount

 

Jamison wants the Ravens to go back to Old School football. And he's right. They haven't been able to win or make the playoffs without the running game.

Dixon really hurt this team by getting suspended. Asshole.

Baltimore now has one open spot on the roster. The Ravens can sign unrestricted free agents tomorrow without affecting how many compensatory picks they would get in next year’s draft.

You don't make an old school team by just adding a RB.  It starts at the OL and this line is not built to be that.  They have one guy who can be that in Yanda.  Dixon is not an old school RB so his suspension is not that big a deal.

Welp, this should settle it, Pats put the rare May 9th tender on Blount, meaning if he signs with any team before July 22nd, said team would have to give up a 2018 draft pick. If he doesn't sign with a team before then, then he can only sign with the Pats.

Brilliant.

The smartest run team in the league by a long shot.  Be a copycat and emulate them.
