It's so hard to tell sometimes without the icon
The problem the Ravens have is cap space.
They paid BIG cap money to Ngata, Rice, R. Lewis and E. Reed and several other current players.
The Ravens have to pay 42 players, they can't tie up a major chunk of their cap space on a handful of players.
The NFL expert in keeping the salary cap under control is Bellichek. He seems to have an uncanny knack to know when to release veteran players who are no longer productive.
While we're at it, Boldin is scheduled for a $6M cap number next year. Might be time to see what Laquon Williams and Tandon Doss can do
if you think about flacco's great games they are few and far between.He had one of the best defenses to back him up, while learning to QB for the ravens.He's not what he could be and not as bad as we ve had in the past . he's no manning either of them. But he's no K Boiler , even though some fumbles and interceptions and very painful and at the worst time.He needs to concentrate more and his joe cool is his lack of foucus in the game . Peyton should be a tool for flacco's improvement . the awareness in the game would bust a blood vessel in his brain. but Joel's going into overtime he just blind his eye's look up with a Jeff and drag's his butt on the field like he we go .Take up karate joe wax on wax off
See, the difference between a Flacco and a Brady or a Brees (or the Mannings) is that they didn't ALMOST make it to a Super Bowl. They took their teams there and won it. (In Brady's and Eli's case, multiple times.) We don't need to do a mega-deal with Flacco for almost being good.
You know, there's like 10 sure-fire future Hall of Fame quarterbacks like Manning, Brady, Brees, and Rodgers just waiting to get signed or drafted. The Ravens need to dump that Flacco guy and get one of those Hall of Fame guys.
This debate between the bashers and the supporters is silly in my opinion. I believe the bottom line is Joe is an above average QB who often does well in spite of some offensive challenges that stand in his way. On the other hand, he has too many clunkers to be considered one of the best. This year, by most objective measurements, he has had more bad games than good games. I don't think it is all on him. There has been poor O-line play and poor play-calling, but to say Joe doesn't deserve some blame for some of his poor games is myopic in my opinion. Joe should get a deal but it shouldn't be a Brees type deal. It should be a deal based on what he has done so far which is above average but not great.
