    We have 11 draft picks though. Twelve if we trade Ed Dickson (I'm not getting off of that bandwagon, sorry).
    We can make a really nice stride this OS, if we draft well and dump our old mens' salaries for a few solid FA signings.

    At this point i think Dickson has more value to us as the #2 TE then for a 6th or 7th round pick. We couldnt possibly expect more then that for him at this point. To his defense he has got better as a run blocker and its not lik e he got a ton of opportunities this year then get's hurt.

    I am aware of that, but he has a bigger frame and looks more athletic, looks to be in great shape, similar player to Chris Myers.

    I haven't crossed the "Harbs must go" bridge yet, but if I had, I'd support any young, innovative, cerebral, successful coach out there...college or pro.
    Kelly is on my list, but Jaws makes some good points here on why the spread might not work

    So maybe Kelly running the hurry-up or some spread hybrid would work.

    He is a junior and returning.

    With a low tender on Dickson, anyone signing him would give us a 3rd rounder (since that is the 2010 round in which Ed was drafted).
    The Rams could use a TE and with 2 1st rounders, the impact of trading away a 3rd is lessened.
    Of course, they could just go ahead a draft Eifert or Fauria in the 2nd.

    KC could also use a better target for Geno Smith...especially with their crappy #2 WR production, #1 TE's injury history, and the prospect of not re-signing Bowe. Their 2nd round pick could go to Woods, Hunter, Patterson, whomever. A better move than taking Eifert or Fauria IMO

    Joeckel - KO - ??? - Yanda - Oher

    Looks pretty nice. Unlikely though.

    Ozzie has a HUGE offseason to deal with when this season over.

    Depth is a huge...HUGE problem.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Agreed. This team has too many bloated contracts for players who aren't doing squat, particularly guys over the age of 30. Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Matt Birk, Anquan Boldin... all should be gone. Ngata has a huge contract he's not living up to. Suggs only gets more expensive in the last few years of his deal. Not suggesting Ngata and Suggs should be gone but their contracts might need a looking at.

    They need to free up a lot of money and make a lot of aggressive moves to rebuild this team. The Flacco contract situation is just impossible to even think about... what are they gonna do for this guy? Do they even WANT to move forward with him? I don't know. I don't want the Ravens to take a chance on something uncertain in the draft, but I just don't know anymore.

    Haloti can't do much when he's surrounded by undrafted players and Terrence Cody. Suggs will be back strong next year, and will hopefully get healthy.

    I really think they clean house next year, franchise Flacco, and try to restock in the draft. We have to many holes
    to fill. Could be a down year next year. I hate to say it, but I think this is all your going to get out of Flacco.

    I agree 100%

    The Ravens are going to have some tough choices to make regarding personnel. Ozzie made some a couple years ago and I have faith he will again.

    Most important of all they need to have a more productive draft. I tend to agree with WickedSolo that even though we have many holes to fill, we need to move up and get a impact player on either the Oline or Dline. That is a must IMO. This team is losing in the trenches and thats the FIRST thing that needs to be fixed.

    Flacco is not worth 14 million, I wouldn't even franchise him.
