Yes, for the better
No, get an new OC, and franchise Flacco
Rivers is a dirk...
Who's gone further in the playoffs, Flacco or Rivers? I don't see what your gaining.
Until Rivers BEATS a Maryland team how do you expect him to WIN for a Maryland team?
Never beat MD while at NCSU, never beat the Ravens in his pro career....
No way would I franchise Flacco because he's not worth that kind of money.They're gonna need that cap space to help fix the OL and the Defense. If Flacco would be willing to sign a reasonable contract I would be all for re-signing him.
It would be ridiculous to go out and dump a boatload of money on Rivers because that would essentially put them in the same position in regards to the cap.
Lewis,Reed,Boldin,McKinnie and Birk all need to be put out to pasture and that cap savings needs to be investing into adding quality young talent to the OL and the Defense.
Rivers is a good QB, but he's missed the playoffs every year since Tomlinson left the Chargers.
Flacco is not a top 5 QB and until he shows that he belongs in that group he shouldn't be paid like one.
Lets see Flacco gets his $18million,Haloti his $10 million,Suggs his $10 million and Boldin his $10 million.That would leave the team with $72 million to pay the salaries of the other 49 players.May as well brace for a whole bunch more mediocrity and cheap castoffs from other teams because the cap simply will not allow for anything better.
The only way you can sustain that is by getting players on the cheap through the draft who can be solid consistent contributors to the team.Something the Ravens have failed to do these past few drafts and a big reason why the Defense has fallen into the current state that it's in.
Who was the QB the last time the Ravens won the SB?
1. Peyton Manning, Broncos - $19.2
2. Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers - $17
3. Michael Vick, Eagles - $16
4. Tom Brady, Patriots - $15.7
5. Eli Manning, Giants - $15.27
