Notice how nearly every player deflects credit elsewhere?
I hope the NFL weenies were paying attention to the size, energy and excitement of the crowd.
Salary cap situation in the AFC North
Ravens - 12.9 Million Under (Assumes Flacco's current rookie contract)
Bengals - 50.6 Million Under (Only time he lets go of a nickel is to get a better grip)
Steelers - 13.8 Million OVER (That's money well spent! NOT!)
Browns - 45.6 Million Under (If they ever get their heads out of their collective backsides, they might be able to resurrect a storied team)
It will not be easy for the FO to retain as many impact players as we fans would like. Remember, however, the FO will try to keep as many as possible (meaning as many as the cap will allow).
They have faced this problem nearly every year for the last decade - good record of accomplishment equals low draft position. The FO seems to have excelled in facing that problem. Let's wait and see how they pull it off.
As fans, we know the Ravens will never do anything the easy way or in a pretty way. I have faith that the organization (Owner, GM, FO, coaches, staff and players) will make us proud to be fans.
Didn't say they won't give us heart palpitations from time to time, only that they will make us proud!
Feel free to chip in!
