    They tried to bring back as many as possible for one last run, but Joe Flacco has a hold on this division now.

When you take their top 23 players, including their RFAs, they go up to around $125 million. So that's $4 million over the cap before we even add the other 28 players needed to determine their "rule of 51". Assuming the average for those other 28 players is $575-600, that puts them about $22-25 million over the cap.

    They're screwed.
    Well, I am not ready to right them off at this point....but they cannot afford another bad draft like last season. (who can?)

    I'm sure that's it. Most writers are only basing their stories on the present Cap status of teams which only includes the players presently under contract.

    I was thinking along the lines of the play of the MVP QB...making passes to the young TEs and wide-out Torrey Smith.

    Don't get me wrong...they don't win the SB without the veterans...but outside of Anquan Boldin, all the other veterans (Reed, Suggs, Lewis, even Ngata) had a fairly quiet post-season run.

    Oh, because I thought you were talking about the bone crushing fumble causing hits by Courtney Upshaw, and the play of Arthur Jones.

    EXACTLY! People are foolish to equate youth with poor play. It's all about BALANCE.

    You got to love the way the Ravens have Been doing business the last couple years. I personally think the Ravens organization has grown over the last couple years.
    But for me I live behind enemy lines and it will be so good To hear this city cry for a while. I hope they gut the team.

    Cincy Got cap room and look dangerous. They just might be something to reckon with next year.

    But the mighty ravens will not go out without a fight.

    Cincinnati could still use some help on the back end. Dre Kirkpatrick was supposed to be some of that help, but he didn't even play the season. Cincinnati is all pass rush. They struggled to stop the run on the edge, because they don't maintain gap discipline. They struggled in the secondary, because they just don't have a lot of talent back there.

    Their cap is in bad shape. I HOPE they play the shell game and keep the old vets and restructure deals, but I seeing them cutting alot of bait. Most of that defense is on the wrong side of 30. But, they did finish FIRST in defense and will always have a top 10 defense as long as Dick LeBeau is DC. As far as thier draft class of 2012, it grades as an imcomplete: losing thier first 3 picks to injury was freakish. I never count out LeBeau and Big Ben even though challenges are up ahead.

    Was listening to SiriusNFL this morning and they used the figure "currently $23M over the cap" when referencing Pitt

    Exactly. They see Ray retiring and Reed a free agent and assume the Ravens are gutting the team. The Bengals will compete for the division just like they did this year. I don't see a window opening for them though.
