    Both have made a huge impact. Good free agent production at a great price.

    We had a really solid draft too IMO.

    KO alone has been worth it. Then you get some nice play out of Upshaw and Pierce as well.

    Good point ! Upshaw, while not spectacular, was steady; KO started and helped solidify the Oline (my post in May 2012 was that he should start @ LG, then switch to LT in 2013); and Pierce has become the perfect compliment to Ray Rice... Bc

    Add thanks for undrafted Free Agent Tucker

    and I'll give a pass for Considine

    Not a player, but getting Caldwell is also proving to be a big pick up.

    And Kemo - he plays too much - well that is not his problem, anyhow that signing was perfect.

    I really liked the Graham signing at the time, but was lukewarm to JJ. Both turned out great though...

    Our 2012 Draft is really starting to pay dividends and kudos to Ozzie for having the balls to cut a former pro bowl kicker in favor of an untested rookie. Our depth has really been tested this year yet we manage to keep our heads above water.

    And kudos to the front office for making the move to Jim Caldwell as OC, no matter you spin it there's always a risk-reward associated with a move of this magnitude this late in the season. It's a toss up. Will the move pay off or will it backfire? We know the answer to that one.

    Heck, I think the coaching staff needs a high five too.

    I don't think it's coincidental that Jones and Graham were valued so lowly by other teams only to be studs here.

    I think you can go back to a guy like Chris Carr too. He was primarily a dimeback/#5 cornerback guy with special teams/kick returner experience who morphed into a solid starter for several top-5 defenses with the Ravens.

    Heck, we turned Fabian Washington (who the Raiders traded---can't get much lower on the NFL totem pole than that) into a valuable cog for 1.5 years too.

    Also, wasn't Cary Williams released by a mediocre Titans team halfway through the 2009 season, only to starting a year and a half later for a 13 win Raven team?

    On a down note...we have Bobbie Williams....uggg...can't win em all.
