1. What made you stick with Head Coach John Harbaugh?

 

2. What are your thoughts on Dean Pees joining the Tennessee Titans?

 

3. What are your thoughts on the declining fan attendance in the past couple of seasons?

1) why, historically, has this team not been able to draft nor develop a wide receiver?

2) why does this team contiue to start the season out slowly, then collapse in the 4th quarter of games late in the season?

3) do you mix the yolks separately from the whites then add them together to make a Biscuit?

1 and 2 are the reason why Ozzie and Harbs should be there.

1. Has Joe Flacco has lived up to his end of his contract?

2. Do you think the Ravens are managing their CAP well?

3. Are you putting an entertaining product on the field?

An airtight defense can get the Ravens to the playoffs, but the Flacco who showed up Sunday resembled the one who led the franchise to its last Super Bowl berth. He was the one who coaches and teammates, all preseason long, had said was capable of this.

Martindale will bring pressure from anywhere on the field under any situation. He has the psyche of former Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan. He doesn’t give a damn because his style rules.

1. How would you account for the general, gradual decline of our drafts over the past 5 years ? And what are going to do about it ?

2. How do you intend to address the loss of the team's swagger and absence of a single playmaker (offense or defense) over this same period ?

3. About 5 years ago you said you were building this team to not just make the playoffs but win multiple SBs. Do you remember that ? Given the team's mediocre play and absence from the playoffs, what happened and why did you abandon the winning mantra. Most importantly, how do you plan on restoring the winning, smashmouth style of football that we enjoyed the first 10-15 years of this team's existence ?

Maybe a bit verbose but these are legit questions, no ?

Good stuff. Hopefully the media will pose these questions instead of having a love-fest.

1. Have season-ticket renewals dropped appreciably, and how does the team intend to win back disenchanted fans?

 

2. You have often stressed continuity within the organization. But how long will you continue to maintain the status quo in the wake of mediocrity?

 

3. Did you personally agree with the organization's one-sided emphasis on building up the defense last spring? 

 

4. At last year's "State of the Ravens" address, you said, "We've seen a better Joe Flacco in the past.  ... We need to get more out of Joe." In your opinion, did that happen? And is the organization preparing for life after Flacco?

 

5. To what extent do you think the Ravens' limited salary-cap flexibility is to blame for the team's struggles during the past five years, and how much have early-round failures such as Matt Elam, Arthur Brown and Breshad Perriman played a role in that?

I like the questions posted on the board better. They're more directly to the point.

Agreed.  I have said the press has treated the team way to leniently.  I think they should be far more aggressive.  That said these questions are better than in the past.  So they are getting there.

Why don't you run the team like I would?

Don't you think my ideas are the bestus?

If you don't do everything the way I would I'm going to pout and cry. Are you going to do things my way? +Sniffles+

No I don't think ppl are asking for the team to be run in their image.  They are asking why they keep running it in a way that isn't successful.

So the bottom line is no young qb to be drafted this year? This year’s class is supposed to have good potential for qb even in the second and third round.

Actually I have shifted in many ways over the yrs.  I was very pro Joe for a long time.  Then I gave up him when he wasn't getting better and and started regressing.  I really gave up on him when he wanted a ton of money.  I have shifted in several ways over the yrs.
