    Look bottom line is that I saw enough in Upshaw to feel confident he is going to be at the very least solid. For a rookie I thought he showed good instincts, was one of the better defenders vrs the run and has room to grow vrs the pass. He showed more as a rookie IMO than Kruger did in every season leading up to this one.

    I may be in the minority but I think Kruger is very limited as a defensive player. He sucked vrs the run. He became very effective vrs the pass ONCE Suggs came back. That's not a guy the Ravens hand 9-10 million a year.

    Kruger is nowhere near worth 60 million. He really turned it on in the pass rush dept but he's not a complete lb. he wasn't great against the run.

    Totally agree. It only took him till 10 games prior to free agency to figure out how to get to the QB lol

    Let the Browns throw him 50 or 60 million ...its why we have the Lombardi and they have nothing lol

    All ILB's get beat like red headed step children more times then not my friend. We don't pay ILB's to be great in coverage, we pay them to stop the run first. If they can hold their own in coverage, which I think Ellerbie can, then that's all you can ask.

    Bart Scott and/or Spikes? Really? They're on the downside of their careers. Why do you think Scott is no longer in NY?

    Cosell thinks Ellerbe has improved in coverage and is adequate. Says that he's easily a 3 down LB because he's arguably the best A gap blitzer in the league. Ellerbe is athletic enough to become good in coverage IMO. There is no getting away from this guys, Ellerbe is a very good player that would be a huge loss if we don't get him re-signed.

    Re: Ravens ellerbe close to deal

    I really do hope we resign Ellerbe. He's our best linebacker right now on the roster. I hate to go into next season with a linebacker core of Upshaw, McClellan, Bynes, future draftee and Mcclain (coming of injury). We would have some serious depth issues.
