    However, I dont know if anyone else noticed this, but did you guys see how Matt Ryan's passes majorly (MAJORLY) died after like 15 yards unless he put a ton of loft on the pass? It seemed like all of his receivers were having to go down low to get passes that were longer than 15 yards.

    Ryan better hope he is a Falcon for life, because there is no way in hell he could play at a high level for an entire season in an outdoor stadium...especially in the north.

    Eric DeCosta told us at Nest 1, I'm not sure we would have drafted Matt Ryan even if he was there because of all the
    work my dept did on Joe Flacco.

    Bingo.

    Now we're seeing why with both QBs.

    I used to respect Bleacher report and used their scouting reports prior to the draft until you posted that.

    Screw em. They don't know a damn thing about football to say that.

    I was reading an article today on the scouting that went into flacco. The main things they wanted was someone that could play in less then ideal conditions and someone that could beat Pittsburgh. Flacco was that guy. Especially after seeing him in a practice throwing darts in pouring rain.

    Do you remember the link to that article? Would love to see it.

    ERic said something like that to us. He said his scout called him and said you should see this kid at Delaware. He's the
    real deal. Eric didn't even know anyone at Delaware and never heard of Flacco. He said it was so hard to go to that
    small school and give him a high grade but he did.

    So he waited for Joe to come down here to play Towson State. ERic just got back from a long scouting trip and
    wanted to be with his family on a Sat afternoon. He saw this giant walk on the field before the game and pick up the
    ball and landed it on a dime from 40 yards. Eric said, damn, I have to see this kid play.

    Then he took all his scouts to see Flacco bring Delaware from behind with 2 mins left to beat Navy. Sound familiar like
    in Denver? Joe is still doing it. Afterwards every scout gave him an A and they went to work on Joe Flacco.

    Cam worked him out at Delaware with his coach and father watching and was impressed especially how quickly
    he changed his mechanics. He told DeCosta to get him.

    Never heard that about the rain but we lost some games especially in Denver when McNair was here.

    So that makes sense.

    National media have hit bottom, and have started to dig

    http://gma.yahoo.com/blogs/abc-blogs...opstories.html

    Ravens cheerleader "announces her retirement" (!!!), then doesn't get picked to go to the Super Bowl. Ravens have 60 cheerleaders, but are only allowed to bring 32 per NFL rules. 23-year old drama queen is left behind. I wonder why.

    And this is an ABC News "Top Story". Sunday can't get here soon enough.

    She retired before the Super Bowl and she's mad she can't go? Technically your not part of the team anymore.

    "We're just angry," Kammerer said. "She was 57th among the hottest NFL cheerleaders this season. People want to burn their jerseys and don't want to support the Ravens anymore. My heart isn't even wanting to go. I could save $3,500. This is totally wrong."

    If hardly call a story that sits at the bottom of the homepage a "front page" story. There's only one page to their web site.

    There is a facebook page that someone created 3-4 days ago just to go over all the reasons why she didn't deserve to go. According the originator, she's had multiple conduct issues, and was previously kicked off the team.

    It was their front story right as you open up their home page just 15 minutes ago. I'm embarrassed to admit I actually opened it.
