    True, but we'll never know what Evans may have done for us if he'd been healthy all season. Certainly his track record (as a receiver) coming here was significantly better than Jones'.

    Besides, no one ever said Ozzie was perfect - merely the best.

    He said they wouldn't use the franchise tag on anyone else but Joe (if necessary).

    As far as restructures go, Ozzie is always very careful with his word, and what he actually says isn't always what he really means. He didn't say they wouldn't do any restructures - he said they "wouldn't not repeat what we did 2001". That's a big difference because in 2001, they basically restructured EVERY meaningful contract in an effort to maintain the roster, re-sign Sharper and bring in Grbac and Searcy. So, he's saying they aren't going to load up to repeat like 2001, knowing that it was going to cause the need for a sizeable Cap purge, but he's not saying that they might not do a restructure or two.

    Agreed...Boldin and Jones for example would be extensions and not the typical restructures as both are only signed for one more season I believe...and I fully expect the team to explore giving each guy a 2 or 3 year extension that would lower the cap number while also giving them another couple years here.

    The only guys that I think would be up for the restructure that everybody reads and talks about are Ngata, Suggs, and Yanda.
    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.

    It doesn't. They go for 2500 or so. Methinks the number was incorrect.

    Steve B said he if he had $7M worth of cap space he would rather invest it in 3 quality veterans rather one dynamic player.

    I'd like to see, but doubt it'd happen, Camden Yards open up as a "spillover" spot for people to watch the stadium ceremony. You wouldn't see them on the field, but it'd be a great spot with a video screen already setup....

    Matbe the next SB year(2013-14?) it will be an ACTUAL screen? not the rinky dink cardboard box it is now?
