    I'm in the same camp. I'll always root for the locals, but unless he becomes an in-line "stoner", he's at-risk unless someone goes down.
    Back to the AFCCG we go. So get ready!

    I think the most likely scenario is we go after a cap casualty. Nate Washington anyone?
    Possibly if they decide to hold on to Britt and see Wright and Hunter as theur future. He would not be a bad fall back option at all.

    I agree. There is a reason we have been drafting WRs with some talent.
    It is time for someone to rise above the rest or maybe, just maybe, we have a stable of receivers ready to play.
    Streeter and Thompson have that year under their belts to mature.
    Gurley is such a huge receiver, Boldin could hide behind him.
    Only one of them needs to step up. I think two of those 3 will.
    We still have Jones and two new H-back types, plus Pitta and Dickson.
    This offense will be extremely versatile.
    The ball will come out quicker, but we have at least 4 receivers with 4.4 speed or better to go deep.
    Remember, Caldwell creates and runs plays to naturally help the receivers gain separation. That was a huge part of the playoff success.
    Now he has the entire offseason and camps to fit the pieces where they will be most successful.
    Hang in there gang...if the OL gets their act together, this offense will take off.
    Our defense will be out to attack QBs who have to score early and often to keep up with the Ravens.

    How about trying to sign Brandon Stokley for one more go around? Peyton Manning sure did like his sure hands. Stokley made some Anquanlike catches in that Ravens vs Broncos playoff game.

    Re: WRs the Ravens could trade for

    The Ravens think one of two things:

    1) the WR group is sufficient, or
    2) someone is going to shake out when teams start paring their rosters.

    It could well be that someone shakes loose that the Ravens would want to bring in for a look. I haven't checked out rosters, but the 49ers traded for Boldin, drafted Patton, and had Jenkins on the bench the whole year, so they might be flush with receivers. St. Louis drafted two WRs in this draft, so they might have someone shake loose. Seattle may be in the same boat (traded for Harvin, drafted Harper). The Vikings signed Jennings, and drafted Patterson. Those teams may not drop a guy, but maybe they find themselves with one too many. I recall Seattle trading Josh Wilson to the Ravens during training camp because they thought they had too many CBs.

    On May 1st, it's really hard to tell what might happen in the fall.

    I don't care about signing a WR anymore, I just hope they get a LT.

    But I'm not so concerned about the depth chart as I am concerned about JJ12. I know he's a vet, but his mind is so far away from football right now...

    On top of that, last year, I think he felt he had something to prove. With a ring, an all-Pro selection, and one of the most memorable plays in NFL history in his lock box, is he going to work as hard this OS as he (apparently) did last OS? Where is his mind going to be? I might be overstating and overthinking things here, but I have more confidence that Doss, Streeter or Thompson will step up and make a strong challenge for the #3 than JJ12 being a reliable asset on offense.
    Would definitely like to see Jacoby step up during the upcoming regular season. Especially considering he is an almost $5 million dollar cap hit who only hauled in 30 passes last season. I wasn't worried about it then because Boldin was there. But with losing his 65-70 catches, who knows how many for first downs, it would be nice to see Jacoby have more of an impact on the offense.

    Other than that, I don't even know why David Reed is even still being mentioned.

    Re: WRs the Ravens could trade for

    Without checking the available receivers list I would much rather us sign someone like Brandon Lloyd, Dominik Hixon or Ramses Barden at this point.

    I think James Jones would be a great fit for our offense, but I'm not sure we would be willing to pay the price in draft picks and contract money

    The Ravens might as well go with the youth competition if they are thinking about trading for the Nate Washington's of the world.
    "When questioned, the Elders explained that they were in search of magical powers. However, they're actually searching for the whereabouts of a certain ring. This ring is a legendary treasure that long ago was known to exist"

    I'd pay Brandon Lloyd to completely stay away from my team.

    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.

    Re: WRs the Ravens could trade for

    I would bet money that the ravens pick up a vet WR that gets cut over the summer. Either way, its time for Flacvo to elevate his game and make these younger receivers that we have look better than they maybe are. Joe is hitting his prime, with all the confidence in the world. I wouldn't be surprised if he makes something out of Doss or Thompson. Reed and LQ are ST guys. Streeter is a big unknown.
