    Sorry if it was insensitive. FWIW the Ravens were concerned about it. It wasn't anything physical or serious. Just kids making jokes about Cam's play calling.

    The last one is a FAVORITE.
    So it's a bad thing to hire a young guy for a low grade position, and then give him opportunities for advancement?

    Fair enough. This is part of a larger problem, IMO, in that ppl (in general, not you specifically) are taking football just a little too seriously in the big picture. But that's for a different discussion I guess.

    I definitely agree. I'm not the type of person that would do that.

    Also, apparently he thinks that McKinnie is in harbaugh's doghouse.

    Re: Some Inside Info

    This thread reminds me of Ferris Bueller ....

    "My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious."

    These posts are quite the enigma. 99% of them end up being bogus but then the occasional one is legit.

    I calling BS on this one. No offense, just playing the odds. These claims are nothing more than a patch work of things we already know (minus the kid getting hazed -- which I dont buy either since his youngest is 18, IIRC) and unverifiable conjecture. There's no way the FO has already made a decision about Ray and Ed and even if some way they have, they're not going to share it with the coaches yet.

    I am not saying whether or not you actually spoke to the coach. Rather, the info listed seems like a lot of hooey.

    That doesn't surprise me, but contrary to many others, I don't fault Harbaugh for this. By all reports, McKinnie is a slug who exhibits zero effort in practice or in the few plays he's been on the field this year. Shoot, in August, a whole lot of ppl on this board were screaming for his release when he no-showed the first week of camp. Now all of a sudden according to some posters he's the answer to all of the problems? That's a dubious notion at best IMO.

    Anyway, thanks for sharing the info.

    Hey I'm not guaranteeing the info, but I have a good source.

    Just curious. Did you speak directly to this source or was this info handed down from a friend of the "source".

    Like I said, I wasn't doubting you. Just the info.

    The guy I'm talking to is a former co-worker of mine that is close to a member of the coaching staff. Leach was actually at his house the other week checking out his new Tesla. I saw the pics.

    That's the truth.

    And Ravens fans (in general, not anyone specifically) sure appear to have been spoiled by years of success.

    I think we've discussed all of these items on the board at one time or another. To me it's just common sense that Flacco and Harb will be back next year and Reed and Lewis likely won't.

    I'd actually be pretty interested in that.
    Sure they do, Harbaugh has a dartboard with my picture on it

    Yep. It's not set in stone, but don't expect them back. If Ray comes back, it's going to be a reduced role.
