Will Ozzie Finally Take a More Aggressive Approach to Gathering Pass Catching Talent?

[QUOTE=Gabrosin;885303]Assuming Jimmy Smith returns to his pre-injury form, and with Will Hill under control as an RFA for at least one more season, I think there's more reason for optimism with our defensive backs than with our receiving corps. Even if they burn the rest of the squad to the ground, you figure we'll have Jimmy Smith, Asa Jackson, Rashaan Melvin, a draft pick, and a bargain free agent at CB, with Will Hill, Terrence Brooks, a draft pick, and a bargain free agent at safety. There's a lot of optimism for that, when you factor that our pass rush, even without McPhee and possibly Ngata, can remain an elite unit.

What is there to be optimistic about with our receivers? Torrey Smith will either be gone or much more expensive than he currently is. Steve Smith will be back, at a higher cost, but he can't be a long-term solution. MAYBE Pitta is able to resume his career... that would be the biggest help to Joe from what we've got now. Crockett Gillmore didn't show me anything as a receiver to make me think he'll be a real weapon... quality player, fine #2, but he doesn't have speed and separation abilities and probably never will. Owen Daniels is with Steve Smith, not a long-term solution. Marlon Brown? Kamar Aiken? They're depth talent. They don't make Joe better.

Rob Gronkowski. Demaryius and Julius Thomas. TY Hilton. Antonio Brown. AJ Green. Jordy Nelson. Dez Bryant. Calvin Johnson. Julio Jones. Jimmy Graham. These are players that make their QBs look good time and time again. We've got to get one. And you only get those guys in the draft. And they usually take a season or two to develop, so every time we put off spending a draft pick on fixing the problem, we make it that much harder to do.[/QUOTE]

Gronk was gone by the time we took Pitta who won the SB with his
TD while Gronk lost his SB unable to run after Pollard ruined him in
POs. He had big game tonight vs a guy who wasn't even playing
football 3 or 4 weeks ago.

Dallas moved up to gert Dez Bryant so he wasn't there. Mike Smith
was just fired for trading the farm to get Julio and it was just him
and Julio down by the junk yard. Calvin went high. Oz wanted
Pitta more than Jimmy Graham who hasn't won a SB either like
Gronk. Ravens beat Antonion Brown 2 of 3 games this year
including last week up there in POs. Ty Hilton was gone by our
turn in that round.

That's why we don't have those guys and Ravens are doing
pretty well w/o them going to POs 6 of 7 years and winning
the SB with Pitta, Dickson and Torrey and coming up one player
short of winning tonight - Jimmy Graham.

He turned out to be the difference of the game but when training
camp started, Ravens had more talent than any team in football
until Webbie went down followed by Jimmy and a ton of other
guys and still came w/o 1 play of the AFC CHampionship game.

That is all.
