    Re: Shout out to Jarrett Johnson!



    Is there even a precedent for giving rings to former players? This is ridiculous to be handing out rings to all of the fan favorites who had nothing to do with this Superbowl run. I don't even think the players would want a ring that they didn't earn.

    Irsay gave Edgerrin James a ring when the Colts won it even though he played for the Cardinals that year.

    I wouldn't do it though. If you not part of the team that wins it, why would you even want the ring?

    I think maybe one or two special cases could exist, but can't really convince myself that we'd do it. JJ, Heap, Mason...they are all great guys who did great things for our team, but we're two years removed from Mason and Heap, and JJ actively went to another team.

    If Ray had retired after LAST year, he'd get a ring this year. That's the exceptions I can see. Or Reed, had he retired, would get a ring this year.

    Johnson was a lunch pail player. He was stuck in the unenviable position of having a lot of value (to the Ravens or other teams), but the team had limited cap space. I miss not seeing him in there - but Kruger's growth would have continued to be stunted. I wish him well.

    don't see Pags getting a ring as he's HEAD coach elsewhere, and will want to earn his own (and might)
    ...does Cam get a ring? I guess they have to!

    I think Pagano would be insulted by getting a ring from the Ravens. I mean, C'mon, we had to beat his team to get to the dance.

    Don't have to, but I'd be shocked if they didn't. He's probably best example of former team personell getting a ring.

    Pagano is a stretch, the more I think about it.

    He was great while he was a Raven but he has nothing to do with the team in the SB this year

    Yes.

    I don't understand why anyone would want to give a ring to a player playing on another team.

    The ring this year represents this year only.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Even though I was a huge JJ fan while he was here, we arguably upgraded our edge defenders this year with the emergence of Kruger, and with Upshaw being so solid setting the edge for a rookie. I feel like the way JJ played this year for SD he would have been a liability and would have kept Kruger back from a career year.

    Re: Shout out to Jarrett Johnson!

    Yea, I forgot to mention that JJ didn't do so hot this year. He had 1.5 sacks, same as the
    rookie Upshaw and much of the year JJ didn't do a damn thing. I think he ended up with
    40 tackles but that was about it.

    Shows the depth we had w/o him and why Ravens let him walk.
