    Re: Bryant McKinnie talking to Harbaugh



    The bottom line is they have no LT right now and are IMO unlikely to secure a "day one starter" there in the draft unless they trade picks to move up, which is a bad idea since they need to use those picks to fill the holes that have opened this offseason. McKinnie, despite what some may think, is a perfectly adequate option at LT while they groom a guy behind him.

    I'm a believer if any player should call Harbs doghouse home it was McKinnie- Last March or there about he recieved a 500K bonus with the agreement that he report in shape and I'm sure on time. McKinnie not only waffled (no pun intended) on that agreement but also didn't feel it important enough to inform the staff of why he was late nor the circumstances behind it. Eventually his Chiropractor called... I mean you can't make this up...

    The end result was Harbs methodology worked, he has the ring to prove it. McKinnie was not a victim.


    If they are willing to sign him it needs to be an incentive laden deal, he's proven over his career to be a guy that cannot be counted on to self motivate. McKinnie is quality but I'm a believer he could have been so much better with dedication.

    That's why I think an incentive-laden contract is key. He needs the motivation.

    BMc : "I'm worth double last year's salary."
    Harbs : "Are you kidding? I've let go of a half dozen guys better than you, you fat, lazy slob."
    BMc :" Does that mean I can't come back at Left Tackle for the Ravens."
    Harbs : "I'd rather lose with Oher at Left Tackle than suffer looking at your fat ass chowing
    down in the locker room."
    BMc : "So I guess I'd better pack my bags and look for a better offer elsewhere."
    Harbs : "Don't bother. I'll pack your bags myself and provide a one-way ticket out of Baltimore."

    It's amazing that even with putting in the minimum amount (and sometimes less) of effort Bryant McKinnie has turned in a 10-year career as an above-average LT. You've gotta think he'd be a HOF'er if he had any sort of drive or motivation.

    I think he didn't start most of the year because of McKinnie.

    The man who kept McKinnie from playing was McKinnie, not Harbaugh.

    The truth is...we'll probably never really know.

    Nothing wrong with McKinnie on the cheap. The only other team that was supposedly interested was the Bears and they lost interest once they spoke with him. He can make all these comments about getting paid but everyone knows that McKinnie has tons of debt and not too many options.

    Re: Bryant McKinnie talking to Harbaugh

    I think its funny last year we debated what the best OL on the team was, the mckinnie supporters were basically proved right in the playoffs and now well still argue if mckinnie is worth it. I dont give a shit that hes not maximizing his talent and totally focused on football. Hes played at a good level everytime hes touched the field and is probably the best pass blocker on the team. No brainer to bring him back since hes still available. You can blame him for not "practicing good enough" but harbs needs to put the 5 best out there and he didnt do that until injury forced him. Still a mistake on harbs part to make practice more important than games.

    I like McKinnie. But for the love of all that's holy and good, will you please stay focused on keeping in some semblance of shape over the off season and report to whatever team you are playing for on time?

    Go look up anyone who charted the o-line and you'll see that McKinnie wasn't even that good. KO playing next to him made the big difference. He was still the best option at the time but there is no way he's worth paying up to get. Every team in the league has analyzed the way the Ravens line played in the playoff and no one else is calling him. That means they don't think that McKinnie was anything special either. McKinnie can sign at the Ravens price or deal with his creditors.

    I don't think Mckinnie was that good at all the year before when he had full slate of games. I may be wrong but I think he rated very poorly. Don't get me wrong, I want him back on the cheap, but he has not been a world beater every time on the field by any means.

    Re: Bryant McKinnie talking to Harbaugh

    Allegedly the Saints are interested also since they lost Bushrod.

    Take a look at this info from Brian Baldinger re: Castillo on Osemele

    “I think Juan is the single-best developer of talent on the offensive line in the entire league,” Baldinger said. “If Juan tells me he thinks that Kelechi Osemele can play left tackle, I want to see it. I want to see what he looks like if he lines up there.”

    Any player that can be called the most frustrating player ever seen on tape, by Greg Cosell, is a player who wasted talent.

    The Saints at it again, raiding our offensive line.
