    Weren't you one of those wanting us to bring in smith and not resign flacco only a couple of months ago?

    The report I read said he might be through with football. I don't know if that's of his choosing or the fact that no one will take him, but it's an incredible waste of talent. What a schmuck.

    No, I didn't flat out say, lets trade Alex Smith for Flacco. I said Alex Smith can play for a talented team and have success for a very cheap price, which is pretty much true. I said that IF Flacco priced him self out of Baltimore (bearing in mind this was after arguably his worst performance in his career) that Alex Smith may be someone to look at.

    Again, I love how you like to bring up things people said back in Novemeber/December, when I already admitted that I was wrong about where Flacco ranks in the league. We've moved on past that now.

    This is a target/carry tape, not a highlight tape...at least I think so, b/c that's what the "owner" usually posts on his YT page.
    You can see several blocking plays as well.
    Expectation-wise, he's no way the blocker that Leach is, but he's a much better receiver. Based on this tape, he'd be better than Rice. His route and catch at 2:48 is pretty damn good. Generally, he has above average wiggle for a guy carrying 240lbs. Definitely, a nice player overall. Has some attitude also, which is good. However, I didn't see it at the Senior Bowl, but maybe he was just a bit star-struck and more "respectfully" of the much, much better competition.
    Yeah, that's from DraftBreakdown which is a very nice site for pretty comprehensive game tape. Juszczyk is a really nice player, obviously the level of competition is a concern but his ability jumps off the screen in a big way. He actually got good reviews from the Senior Bowl practices, even being compared to Vonta Leach at one point when he pancaked a LB in a blitz pickup drill. I would really like to see the Ravens pick him up.

    Reminds me of another Woodson that was brought in years ago.

    Honestly I see Woodson getting more than the vet minimum. If Birk can get more why can't he?

    According to NFL Draft insider Tony Pauline, Cal WR Keenan Allen has "not looked anything special" in pre-Combine workouts and "failed to separate himself" from the receivers he's training with. Allen has reportedly not showed the "wow" factor typically associated with a high draft pick, according to Pauline's sources. Allen, listed at 6-foot-3, 210, is coming off a knee injury that cut his junior season three games short. As a sophomore in 2011, Allen racked up 98 receptions, 1,343 yards, and six TDs.

    Yea, I could actually see him sliding into the 3rd round.

    There is no structure in Detroit and it starts with the head coach. Greg Williams, Jim Schwartz and Jeff Fisher are all of the same mold: Player coaches who will stomp on your throat when the get the chance, but who struggle to manage team disruptions and other issues.

    Titus Young needs structure and I think he could get it here. Look at how many players have come here, from other teams, and raved about the structure and overall uniqueness of the organization?

    My issue with Titus Young is whether or not he can stay healthy. However, for 1-2 million, I would be willing to find out.

    As for Randy Moss, need I dig up the seemingly endless thread about Moss from last year? The one where I have actually quotes from some of the best talent in the league, coaches and personnel alike, that detail how the general fanbase misconstrues Randy's ways?

    I'm not saying the man's an angel. He had a blip on the radar, his second time around in Minnesota and the story about the caterers was true. However, much of this idea that he constantly takes plays off, is actually Moss setting up his routes and that's part of what makes him great. Player quotes and coaches quotes show it.

    No way I would want Titus Young. He's been trouble everywhere he's been.

    Young was frequently in trouble off the field during his career at Boise State. He was suspended for most of his sophomore season after fighting with a teammate. This led many NFL teams to pass on him in the 2011 draft. In May 2012, the Lions sent Young home after he sucker-punched Louis Delmas. In November 2012, the Lions sent him home again for conduct detrimental to the team. According to Lions coaches, Young deliberately lined up in the wrong position twice and got into a verbal confrontation with receivers coach Shawn Jefferson.[7][8] It was the last down Young played for the Lions. He was declared inactive for the team's Thanksgiving Day game a week later and told to stay away from the facility. On December 5, the Lions placed Young on injured reserve, ending his season. To express his frustration, Young tweeted about not wanting to play anymore if he did not get the ball.[9] Young was released a little more than a month later.

    Dwight Freeney has been told that he will not be with Indianapolis next season.

    Apparently, Austin Collie will be right behind him.

    You know, this might be turning out well for the Ravens. With the cap not increasing, it will force many teams to release valuable players, thus flooding the market. Remember how many ILBs were on the market last year?

    Good point Ex.

    That could definitely be a big possibility.

    My gut still tells me that someone will outbid the Ravens for Paul Kruger. However, it might work in their favor for Ellerbe. Pass rushers are in high demand. Personally, I think that Kruger will continue to struggle against the run, in coverage and without another quality pass rusher opposite him, but someone will pay him to be the man.

    No, you're right. More wishful thinking on my part. Obviously no one is going to pay him was he was going to make this year in GB (~$9M) but someone is going to give Woodson good money to play Safety in their backfield.

    Was hoping at his age he might come a little cheaper.
