No way we cut Joe. Some QB needy team would take him off our hands of that I have no doubt.
I think it's simple really. We present Joe with the facts. We want to spend money on getting him some weapons and keeping the O-Line intact to keep him healthy. The last couple of years has proven he needs help. To do that we need him to give us some money back but we will sweeten the pot by guaranteeing more $ and extending his deal. Joe gets a long term deal, the Ravens get more cap space and both sides win by having a better chance of winning. If Joe doesn't want any of that then he is not the QB we want leading this team and we trade him.
Or the Ravens could do when they see a shiny apple on the horizon what Indy did and eat the season. Do the full rebuild and accumulate every pick they can get.
This is total horse shit. Indy didn't suck on purpose to get Luck. They had no one to replace Peyton Manning when he got injured. Do you think the FO approached Jim Caldwell and told him we want you to lose every game so we can get the #1 pick and draft Luck but oh by the way we will fire you at the end of the season for losing. No team will ever lose on purpose in order to get a higher draft pick as the draft is such a crap shoot. For every Manning there is a Leaf, for every Luck there is a RGIII, for every Flacco there is a Ryan.
I think we should petition some NFL teams to get Papa an interview for one of the open GM spots. Can you imagine the interview with the owner?
Owner: "So tell me how you intend to turn us into a winner and get us a Superbowl?"
Papa: "I start by trading every player with any value for draft picks"
Owner: "I don't think other teams will give up a lot of picks for aging Vets with big contracts."
Papa: "There will always be an idiot GM that I can Jedi Mind trick into giving up a 1st round pick for a player. If I had been Ravens GM I would have got a 1st round pick for Boldin when he was traded to the 49ers."
Owner: "Wow, impressive what else would you do to improve the team?"
Papa: "I would tank the next couple of seasons so we can get the #1 draft pick and draft a can't miss QB."
Owner: "What!?! We can't do that the fan base would stop coming to the games and we would lose money."
Papa: "Don't worry about losing money, I would have traded you for a 1st round pick to another team that would still be making money."
A change of scenery can help RGIII. Look at Sanchize in Philly. Go somewhere as a backup and take your chance when a starter gets injured. Somewhere like the Bills or Lions where there are some weapons there might not be a bad fit.
No. Use your scouting dept to look yrs into the future and ID a guy you like. Put yourself in positionto grab the person you like.
So what you are saying is identify a college freshman to lead your team and then tank a season 2, 3 or 4 years in to the future to make sure you get him. You sir are a fucking idiot and we all get a little dumber reading the shit you spout daily. Sure once in a while you say something intelligent but then a broken clock is also correct twice a day so you do have that going for you. SMH.
