    My dad smoked and it killed him. He died at 71 and would have lived a lot longer. My mom
    is 88 and never smoked or drank and didn't eat much.

    Re: McKinnie?

    I heard something interesting on the NFL on sirius yesterday. Not sure which show it was. McKinnie was on the show sometime during the season and was blasting Cam. He said that Cam hates him and that was why he was not playing. Maybe it was not Harbaugh but Cam who put McKinnie in the doghouse. Could make the firing of Cam look even better, if that was possible.

    I have an eating issue too, I just love food so much lol. The worse thing is I stack on so much weight if I don't go to the gym or when I'm not playing sports, so I literally have to spend my life working out. Other issue is probably too much beer.

    True. I wonder how much of that is (if any) his inability to practice or workout fully. I noticed when he made a tackle in the Pats game, that he seemed to be struggling with his knee.

    IMO, this was all on McKinney. The LT position is way too important to the success of Flacco and the offense for Harbs not to over rule some hidden agenda by one of his coaches. Harbs is in tune to what is going on with all of his players and coaches. As for Cam's demise I think it was because of the very things that almost everybody was talking about. His play calling and lack of game time adjustments.

    Re: McKinnie?

    Ngata is fat? Yeah, never seen a fat DT in my life, like ever.

    And btw, Ngata has been outstanding in the play offs so far, so any talk on him being ineffective lately is total garbage.

    He has 12 tackles, 3 QB hits, 3 QB hurries, and 10 defensive stops so far in the play offs. That's pretty awesome for someone so big, this late in the season. This is arguably his best play off performance since he's been here. I wonder where Vince Wilfolk was against us btw? Oh yeah, on his back because of Yanda and Birk. The NE and Denver interior offensive lines are two of the best in the league too.

    Didn't Haloti say the loss of weight last season made it more difficult to be effective down the stretch? He's bigger this year, no doubt, but it definitely hasn't rendered him ineffective.

    Re: McKinnie?

    Initially I was content with the understanding that McK's sitting was to ensure that he did not reach the escalator snaps percentage to restore the million+ renegotiated at the "you are cut...no you are not" final roster.

    I thought it was 50% ??
    then as the mid-point of the season passed, I wondered why was he still sitting?
    Jah's injury seems to have forced the issue, but I'm also strongly leaning to Cam's doghouse... and to a degree Harb's doghouse also.
    With 2 doghouses he was sitting, Caldwell not having a doghouse opened the door and Jah's injury had Harb's relenting due to best for the team logic.

    McK is playing his way onto somebody's roster next year... I don't think it is going to be ours, but he has every motivation possible to play every play

    McKinnie needed to play and play well this year (which he is doing) to get film out there for other teams. I doubt he wants to play for the Ravens anymore. Would you want to work for a company that cut your pay? He will get a contract with some other team, and will go to the highest bidder. It's a shame, because the Ravens are not going to have much cap room to sign a quality free agent LT, and are unlikely to find a quality LT with the 32nd pick. McKinnie was due to make $3.2 million for this season, which was cut to $2.2 million. That is not a lot of money for a decent LT.

    According to Preston, McKinnie wants to stay here.

    Marty from Columbia: Does Bryant McKinnie have a chance to come back next year to the Ravens? As you’ve stated, there is no doubt the offensive line is much better with him and now can be considered a strength and not the team's weakness. By the way, congrats on calling this ALL SEASON LONG.

    Mike Preston: Marty, McKinnie definitely wants to come back next season. He doesn't want to start new again in another city and he likes his teammates, especially the group on the offensive line. He works well and has a strong relationship with Osemele. But now is not the time for thoughts like that.

    Yes, he does seem fat(er) than before. He's always been big, but he does look like he;s carrying more around the stomach area than he has before.

    I'd like you to point out though where any one talked about his effectiveness or lack of...

    Maybe, but I think this may be McKinnie's agent telling him to say what he needs to say to look like a team player. It would look very bad right now to announce that you plan to play elsewhere next year. I think the only way he re-signs with the Ravens is if they offer him the most guaranteed money, which will be tough given the lack of cap room that the Ravens will likely have, and the fact that there is a major shortage of even decent LTs in the league. Some other team will offer McKinnie more money than the Ravens will be willing/able to play. Offensive linemen can play for a long time (barring injury). I think McKinnie could probably play at a decent level for at least 2-3 more years.

    I live in the gym man. In fact, I retired early at 55 to spend more time in the gym. The doc said I will live longer if
    if can afford to retire. I get up at 11 and get lunch and go to the gym. I swim for 2 hours and then work out for 2 hours
    on the weights. For additional exercise we throw Steeler fans out of our bar on Fri nights-lol. NObody in that gym spends as much time there as me. Several months after I retired Admin Steve came up to me at a Nest 1 party and said Trap, have
    you been working out? I said yea, I'm retired now and that's all I do. He could tell from the muscles and my expanded chest.


    I lost 70 lbs as soon as I retired, regained 30 and lost 20 over the summer. I weigh 245 right now and the doc still wants
    me to lose another 30 lbs. Actually, that's my playing weight and it worked for me in fighting but Working out has saved my life. The only thing I do is go to the gym and sing at night and follow the Ravens around the country. I tell people it's a hard life but nobody believes me.

    Okay, that is the last time I'll razz you on that topic.

    Seriously, though, I believe holding McKinney out until the end of the year was a calculated move to ensure he was in good shape and rested for a playoff run. Bringing him in earlier in the season for substantial time would wear him down and potentially expose him to injury. Besides, it probably took 15 weeks at least for him to get into football shape.
    so people are really still holding on to the "he was out of shape" excuse?

    No, he was in shape during camp. He was reported as in good shape during camp.

    This was completely on the coaches, nothing more nothing less

    Right, but how many games did he participate in for that $2.2 million? While I'm glad we have him for the playoff run, he certainly got paid well for the games he was in... Bc
