    Who else are we going to count on? KO and Pierce seemed to do fine replacing the players we lost (Grubbs and Williams).

    No one is paying 7 million for Ed Reed.

    I still think Ed retires. Once the grind of the preparing for the season starts to rear it's ugly head and he starts thinking about his son asking him why are you leaving again... I think he hangs it up.

    If not, I think he comes back to the Ravens as what he'll command based on his skills by another team will be something that's affordable to us to.

    Nobody is paying Reed 7 million. If they get Flacco signed before the deadline, I think there's a good shot that Reed is re-signed. It all hinges on Flacco's contract negotiations. If we are forced to use the exclusive tender, expect to be out of free agency, expect nobody to be re-signed other than ERFAs and one or two RFAs (Pitta and Art Jones), and expect many to be cut (Boldin, Jacoby, Leach, Birk, Williams).

    Not to whizz in anyone's cornflakes, but folks should read this content while they can--the OP has C&P'd a lot more from the Sun website than the 3 paragraphs customarily considered the max for fair use. I expect Tony will (at a minimum) edit out most of the text & replace it with a link to the original to head off any legal problems.

    I agree. What does he have to prove? He's a HoF'er already.

    I think the incentive for Reed to return is a lot less now that he has his ring. Where is he supposed to go from here? I expect him to take a fat paycheck with the Colts or Saints and I wouldn't blame him for trying to cash in before he hangs it up.

    $1.8 million in dead money for Billy Cundiff
    That stings a little bit . . .

    The dead money or Billy Cundiff? That dead money is just a blip on the radar screen. No sting their in my opinion but watch last year's AFC championship yeah that one stings...and that's why I have yet to rewatch that game or kick.

    I think he was just referring to them together because Ray was retiring, not necessarily that he was also retiring or not going back to the SB.

    Because Ed already got a ring, I can see him just taking the money and running.

    I'm sure some teams that could be in the hunt come January will be looking at the guy (Patriots, Saints, Texans, Niners, etc).

    However, I could totally see the guy going to a team like the Bucs or Jets because they throw a ton of money at him.

    I hold no ill will to Ed if he leaves for a chunk of cash, I would do the same. He gave us awesome years, helped being us the Lombardi back. Anytime I feel bad over the players we may lose, I just look to this - XLVII SUPER BOWL CHAMPION BALTIMORE RAVENS!

    As for idiots on the radio that bitch that Flacco is asking to much, that people pay these guys, no we don't. Last time I checked, no where in my last pay stub was there a deduction to Joe Flacco.

    I think some people around here have some sort of defensive complex from always having a stronger defensive team. If the Ravens want to pay an offensive player a lot of money, they throw a temper tantrum.

    this team has a lot of opportunity to improve. the interior defensive line was awful except for nghata and the linebacking position was lacking as well.

    that being said the challenge for this team will be to somehow come close to the intensity and drive it showed in 2012. its been over a week and i am still fired up about last season. the thing that fires me up wasn't joe's play or the defensive stand but the team unity that the ravens exemplified.

    harbaugh will need a PHD in psychology to duplicate last years effort and intensity.

    I mentioned in another thread that Harbaugh won't have his wingman (Ray Lewis) next year to get all the ducks in a row. Sure we'll have different leaders next year (Flacco, Suggs, Ngata etc) but Ray leaves a huge leadership vacuum. It will be interesting to see how Harbaugh steps up his leadership but damn if he hasn't done enough already.
