    Yeah that's a lot of money for an average QB. The Ravens are in a very tough situation.

    What's the plan if an average QB is eating up all of the cap room and makes it impossible for us to improve the team player wise? I am thinking either draft a QB in the second round, and maybe make a play for Alex Smith, who will be a lot cheaper than Flacco.

    The team is really over a barrel here. It'd be nice to have the luxury of evaluating Flacco for a year in a new offensive system, but you only get that with the tag and that's 14 million off your cap. Is Flacco worth that? I don't know anymore.

    At this point, Flacco's contract should look like Matt Schaub's... 5 years, 66 million. No more than that, IMO. But do you even want to commit that much? I gotta say, maybe I'm overreacting to this last game, but I am losing my faith in Flacco VERY quickly.

    I dunno. There aren't any day 1 starters in the draft or free agency, so the team's hands may be tied.

    We don't have Jim Harbaugh him to design an O that Alex Smith can run efficiently.

    Would SD be open to any offers for Philip Rivers by any chance?

    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
    Nobody would give Dickson a contract and give up a 3rd round pick, not a chance. I think at most they could get a 6th or 7th round pick which would be smart for a guy that still has talent and could be a productive 2nd TE

    I would love to get Chip Kelly as the new HC.

    Yes, I agree. Flacco isn't even worth the tag, it'll just screw us for next season. I don't think you're going to get much more out of Flacco, the guy will be 28 in January. I don't know what they do, it's very disheartening. The defense has gone to hell and a lot of the guys that are getting these big pay days are either over the hill or not playing up to it. I truly believe they have many tough decisions. The front 7 lacks speed, that HAS to change. Cary Williams should be gone. Today sealed it for me, he's just average and gets owned by precise route runners and he gave up on a play today which he's done throughout the season. Ellerbe and Kruger are two players I like, but I'd only bring them back for a deal that is worth their value. The OL is in shambles too...

    Going to be a long offseason...

    You can bring in ANY QB you want but unless you fix the Oline and fix the Dline they are not going to be successful

    Yea its a QB driven league but at the end of the day the game is still won and lost in the trenches. No matter how much the game changes that remains a constant. You can get away with so-so but right now both of our lines are just poor IMO.

    And how do you pay Flacco and pay to fix those lines with no cap space?

    Alex Smith is trash that Jim Harbaugh made into something vaguely resembling treasure. He's not an upgrade over Flacco at all.

    Seriously, there are no FA QBs who are an upgrade over Flacco. Smith? Vick??? Jason Campbell???? No thanks...

    Now, here's a thought: if the Seahawks want to cut bait with Matt Flynn and we can pry a new OC off the Packers' coaching staff, like their QB coach Ben McAdoo, or possibly Karl Dorrell out of Houston (as they run a similar WCO), then Matt Flynn might be the best trade bait.

    The drafts lately haven't been too stellar either...

    I dont really see a viable option that makes us a better team so imo they'll have to franchise Joe, that is probably gonna put some vets on the chopping block to clear space to improve the team.

    I thought last years draft was pretty solid.

    The previous 2 however were not very good and the 2010 draft in particular was awful considering the amount of picks we had and the high quality of the draft in terms of depth and quality.
    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.

    Given our recent (2-3 years) draft history, I am not optimistic we can put together the kind of draft we so desperately need.
