    I can't wait to see what this offense can do next year with Flacco having the entire offseason and camps to work with Caldwell as OC I think this team can average around 30 points per game home and away

    Do Flacco haters have anything really to say anymore? I know theyll still pop up from time to time but i feel there should be an official "Flacco hater Crow Feast" thread.

    As far as the future, I think its bright but this offseason is critical in continuing the success, short term. replacing a legend, possibly 2, revamping the O-line (which is critical to Flaccos success), all while still trying to inject youth and talent overall and improve in problem areas. I think long term theyll be fine regardless.

    If were relying on Flacco going forward, I cant see how LT isnt our biggest issue this offseason. More important than Kruger, Ellerbe, Reed, etc. Flacco needs a solid O-line, but at the same time maybe thats addressed in a change of offensive philosophy where he can get rid of the ball quicker.

    OL is definitely a big deal.

    While our 2013 schedule will be challenging, it amplifies your point that those are projected numbers applicable to playing elite PO competition for 16 games straight.

    Yep. There are some significant roster changes coming this off season, but I trust Ozzie to figure something out. Hopefully that means a faster and more athletic defense.

    Offense will be excellent as long as there's a semblance of a solid line.

    This team will look a lot different next year but we have tons of draft picks. And the 'old' Ravens team started 3 rookies in the SB while the 9ers started none.

    FWIW - Vegas has installed the 9ers and Broncos as next year's SB favorites underdog role again, here we go

    Agree - they really need more speed on defense, especially in the LB core.

    We may suffer a little from losing ellerbe and kruger, but the future looks bright
    Upshaw is gonna be a good one

    You have to bring Boldin back... I know he's on the back end of his career, but he could play a Mason like role on this team for years.

    I also think Ellerbe needs to be here.

    Re: The Best Part: ...this is just the beginning

    I agree with everything you guys are saying! I personally feel like we have to keep Boldin and Ellerbe. You just canny argue that some of joes succes was throwing it up and letting Boldin out muscle and go up and get it. I think with a full offseason with Caldwell joe will continue to progress. In the draft we need to get back to what made our defense great, stop the run and force 3rd and long. Yes it may be a passers league but with our corner depth this has to be the focus. Run stopping NT and double dip at linebacker. Throw in a safety and a developmental LT(assuming we can keep McKinnie) and we have the potential to continue to be great. We also have Castillo as the new online coach to coach developmental LT. I am so excited about this team! Honestly I didn't think we would get another one for a while. Cam must be so pissed that everyone knows he was holding flacco back

    Absolutely.

    Obviously, there are any number of impacting variables to those numbers, but based on Flacco's performance this playoff series I definitely think that - under Caldwell - he could throw for over 5,000 yards.

    I wouldn't say next seasons schedule will be hard as this one was.

    It's so hard to tell, a few key injuries for the opposing teams can turn what appears to be a tough schedule upside down. I try not to even pay attention to the schedule in the offseason...
