#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.

#74318 Ray Rice Arrested

Posted by dc. on 01 April 2014 - 02:52 PM

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...

#71123 Now That The Dust Has Settled .......

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.

#90653 Flacco-Rasta

Posted by RavenMad on 07 January 2015 - 06:48 AM

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."

Owner: "Great, you are hired."

#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?

#82321 Worst Day in Franchise History?

Posted by ForceEight on 08 September 2014 - 08:49 PM

Today has been a bad day. Let's summarize.




Our star RB, who was suspended for what most considered too short of a sentence, becomes a world headline again when video emerges of the actual punch of his wife months earlier (which none of us have ever seen).


The Ravens initially report no reactions (as evidenced by Hensley when he sought information this morning).


Then they decide to cut him, announced around 2 P.M.


The NFL announces minutes later that Rice is indefinitely suspended from the league. This appears to be some sort of "obstruction of justice" reaction, obviously because playing double jeopardy would be especially disastrous when the result (for the second time) doesn't fit the crime or the outlined suspension guidelines (e.g. a suspension "correction" would have been six games given the new domestic violence rule).


Ray Lewis, our Ray Rice of 2000 and fairly inarguably still the team's face, speaks publicly about how different he is and how disappointed he is.


The team schedules a late-evening press conference for Harbaugh, who vaguely and retrospectively answered questions. No other persons form management or ownership were present or provided comment.


The team is found to have deleted tweets previously involving the case (specifically, the tweet insinuating that Palmer was a victim by stating that she was sorry for her actions).


News swirls that the team, the NFL, and of course obviously Rice and his attorney, knew about the video and may or may not have seen it. Calls for Goodell's resignation and boycotting of all future Ravens games (made by Olbermann on ESPN; I'm not going to provide him any more attention with a video link) sprout.




Now, can you point to even one event that happened today surrounding this situation that could in any way be considered a "good" thing or even the right thing to do, or a thing that was done in honesty and integrity?


I don't think I've ever been more embarrassed by something I've invested so much in. I can't think of many other situations where a team and/or the league more deserved the ill will coming to it, to be perfectly honest.


Can you?

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....

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.

Well one things for sure Joe is not a leader. he can't even audible into the correct play. Boldin is gone , Joe can't live off of him anymore. joe is really showing what he's really worth this year.

#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.
