Running backs.

 

They have four good backs going into the 2018 season.

 

Alex Collins, Buck Allen, Ken Dixon, and Terrance West. I think West is the odd man out. Could he be traded? Can we get something for him?

West has no value now.  Collins is the only one that ppl might trade for.

yep, there's some silver lining.   Decent cadre of RBs; really like Collins esp if he can enhance his receiving skills. 

Still would like a hammer - i.e. Gurley, Fournette type - back there. 

 

Ya know; someone who can carry the rock and kill the clock when nursing a 3-4 point lead late in the 4th quarter.

Ring a bell ?

"For 17 years, we could point to No. 52 and tell the other players: 'Follow his lead. Practice like Ray practices. Prepare like Ray prepares. Be a great teammate like him,'" Ravens general manager and executive vice president Ozzie Newsome said in a release from the team. "It was our privilege to have him as a Raven. We are all better for having him here. His play on gamedays speaks for itself.

"Even in that small group who have the honor of being a Hall of Famer, Ray stands out. When you talk about the great players of all time, no matter position, he is among the greatest of the great."

Plenty of players on the defensive line, but they did not have the energy to put pressure on qbs late in games, late in the season.

The offensive line, while not great, could not sustain its energy late in games, late in the year.

That is training and conditioning, even with the "new" coach, same issue as years past.

...and that (training/conditioning) could contribute to injuries as well as late game pooping.
