Had they drafted a Center during that period, then they wouldn't have needed to spend the money on Birk that is going to cause dead money to hit the Cap next year.
    Yea, they've been cheaping out on center for a long time.

    Cheaping out on center is one thing. But why they didn't at least grab some center along the way in the draft to be grooming a replacement for Birk years ago is a mystery.

    wow the real eye opener is the dead money. McClain, $2.4M really? This team will look a lot different next year; good thing they have all those draft picks

    We could suit up DEN's/ESPN's Tom Jackson and get better production than what McClain has turned in. Ridiculous.

    I don't get the infatuation with Jacoby Jones. The Ravens can spend that $4+ million in more needed areas, find cheaper replacements for what he brings to the table and not have a huge drop off in production.

    Notsureifsrs. He single handily won the Pitt game with his TD return. Plus, he consistently has long returns to put us in great field position. He's shown good things as a receiver too. Blame the coaching staff for not using him more.

    I'd like to extend Jones to lower his cap number. Great returner, and I think he does a decent job as a WR. His hands are iffy at times, but I think he's been underused this year. If Boldin gets cut, which seems likely, I think we'd want to have Jones back next year to go along with Smith and Doss.

    Smith, Doss and Jones would be my ideal receivers. Smith and Jones on the outside and Doss in the slot.

    Remember everyone posting those analysis links about how Birk was the 2nd best Center in the NFL last year? I said bullshit then and I say bullshit now.

    I remember getting damn near run off this board by some folks for claiming that Birk didn't have the legs anymore.

    I don't know how that's possible. I guess because he maintained his block even if it was into flacco. Lol
