    Claiming someone called Boldin a washed up bum and accusing us who see the thought process behind the moves have their "head in the sand" allowing us to "sleep at night" ....

    Who's attacking who, Sting?

    This is what I love about you guys. First you say that, and then follow up with......

    Boldin was clearly over paid, and is an ageing slot receiver who cannot get separation.
    Soooooooo...........washed up bum.

    And you even went on to say:

    He makes some good catches, but some of those throws were right on the money by Flacco, the money he was earning was quite simply not justifiable to pay. It was Torrey Smith who was the real match up nightmare in the play offs, teams were double teaming him, which allowed Boldin more room. Lets also not forget that he wasn't facing the best corners in the world. Torrey was beating HOF corners while Boldin was matched up with undrafted corners some of the time.
    Translation = washed up bum non deserving of $7 million.


    No, I don't think the point of trading Boldin was to re-sign Ellerbe, they didn't even start negotiating till Tuesday morning.
    And yet the conventional wisdom here, around the league, etc: was that Boldin would be a cap casualty, and Flacco MUST be signed to a long term deal so that they could make keeping Ellerbe a priority.

    Do you actually think Ellerbe is worth $7M a year? The same guy who a lot of people didn't even want back after the 2011 season? You would invest $7M a year for a player you can likely replace in the draft (maybe not quite as much to start with, but maybe said player would be able to stay healthy all year)...? If that's a yes, you are saying Ellerbe is worth just as much as Ray Rice is, a guy who's been to three pro bowls, and has been one of the most consistent and best backs in the NFL since 2009. Ellerbe has struggled to stay on the field, and only this year did he even look close to breaking the top 10 in his position. Signing Ellerbe to that amount would have been poor value, and would have probably cost us re-signing key players down the line, like maybe Torrey Smith.
    And you base that last sentence on what exactly?

    And who is coming in here Leach? So we know it's not a high-quality wide receiver because we're not paying money for one. It's not Jake Long because he signed elsewhere. When you have Josh Bynes and Jameel McClain as your potential starters, you may want to think about paying Ellerbe $7 million for a guy that got it together and was/is your best LB on the team. You think with the 2nd or 3rd round pick you're going to get another LB better than he was this year?

    Who is still out there Leach that can come in and make that impact. On second thought, since you don't have Pollard, Lewis, Reed, Kruger, or Ellerbe your drop off in production is so large that any middleing journeyman FA will be an improvement over what is left I suppose.

    So to answer your question Houston, see above.

    It continues to amaze me how much attacking someone who isn't on board the Ozzie is Awesome train happens here. That's fine.

    On the day Kenny Phillips signed with the Eagles, the Giants announced they signed former Steelers safety Ryan Mundy.

    Not sure if it'll be good enough, but this much is sure: Miami making a strong push to re-sign OT Jake Long.

    Re: Free Agent & Other Player Moves from Around the NFL

    I was shocked Knighton went so cheaply. Even Jean Francois didn't wind up costing that much. I think we definitely should have stepped up and at least entered our name into the running for either player.

    I'm not panicking yet, but the list of quality guys seems to be shrinking daily, and we are still stuck with $9.5 million in available money and fewer decent guys to spend it on.

    We seriously need to sign a decent LB IMO, I'm really hoping for Brad Jones now.

    There is a glut of ILB's out there.

    I don't think we are going to sign a young guy necessarily...it will likely be a vet to hold the fort for 2-3 years max.
    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.

    My feelings exactly, but Jean Francois' deal would have been too rich for my blood at 4/$22m. That's a lot of money for a guy who has never been a starter at a non-premium position.

    I'm not squirming about the CUTS the Ravens have made, but rather the cheap deals they HAVEN'T made with the good amount of cap space they have. They could still make a few moves but the market is shrinking fast. The two top guys on my list right now are LB Daryl Smith and FS Kerry Rhodes.

    I do think there might be something to the notion that the Ravens want to carry over as much as possible into 2014 given a lot of cap numbers spike that year (Webb, Ngata, Flacco, Rice, etc. all have spikes next year, and some are pretty big.)

    I don't have a list, but off the top of my head...

    Brad Jones
    Daryl Smith
    Karlos Dansby
    Brian Urlacher
    DJ Williams
    Rey Maualuga
    Dan Conner
    Larry Grant
    Bradie James

    I'm sure there are more.
