    He mentioned it on the radio, yes. He volunteered the information, no one asked him, "hey is Hostler in line for OC?" or anything like that.
    On the heels of his revealing Sun article, I'm personally taking it as if the team is considering Hostler as the first/only in-house choice for OC...IF they go in-house at all.

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    Ok, thanks for clearing that up.

    I would love to quote pieces of it, but it really deserves to be read in it's entirety.
    The word accomplishments should be in quotes LMAO. Sound like we could be getting Cavanaugh 2.0.

    That's a great way of putting it.

    I seriously doubt that they go with Hostler. I think promoting someone from within on the offensive side is a tough sell to both Bisciotti and the overall fanbase. I don't think Bisciotti would veto it, but again, as you said, it's going to fall on Harbaugh hard if it fails. For that reason alone I see them looking outside and Harbaugh distancing himself from any of the rumored "control" he may have exerted over Cam and Jim while they were here in terms of playcalling.

    I don't think the Ravens would make Hostler the offensive coordinator if that was the case then he should had been the offensive coordinator in 2012 instead of Caldwell. Hostler been a Raven since 2008 and he was clearly the only offensive staff member at time with the most offensive coordinator experience when Harbaugh had to make a decision on who to promote as offensive coordinator when Cam was fired but Harbaugh chose Jim Caldwell instead. I don't see how Hostler would be qualified now but we shall see.

    Thanks GOTA! I think five years of doing the Report Card piece burned me out a little bit and so, like Ray Lewis, I became semi retired. And my personal life changed a lot in the last year (for the better)...but I have been paying attention. Good to see old friends here. (Talking to you, too, Beau, wherever you are).

    Caldwell deserves a lifetime contract. IMHO.
    I want a Flacco jersey! Johnny Bench wore #5

    shas-
    I'm honored by your comments! Hope your "personal life" truly is going well.

    One question based upon your overall perspective (1st post) of what the draft will look like --
    Do you see the Ravens essentially following that pattern because of need v. their advertised Best Player Available mantra? I'm sure BPA is augmented by some "Hey, we're dying on the OL" type needs, so I'm wondering if we'll see some "unusual" picks that might seem like head-scratchers.

    OTOH, now that I think about it, is there really ANY position/area that doesn't need some enhancement? I suspect that Ozzie and Harbaugh will be conferencing with their respective staffs in order to come up with a wish list, and it may just have a few surprises from what many fans feel are priorities.

    No idea how credible this is, but it has an eery feeling of familiarity to it.
    Hostler sounds like the perfect candidate for OC. NOT!

    The notorious matt furstenberg. We won't ignore the tight end position as long as you have

    whoa

    But here’s the thing. After returning from hip surgery, Pitta ran 79.7 percent of his routes out of the slot, the highest rate of all NFL tight ends, according to The Baltimore Sun.

    Thus, Pitta could be considered a receiver, which would mean his franchise tag would go up by nearly $5 million to $11.539 million.

    There is no way that the Ravens franchise Pitta as a TE or as a WR. He is a good player, and is tight with Flacco, but he is not worth $6M/year much less $11M/year.

    If there is a no way in this equation, it would be the team (and the owner) letting Pitta sign elsewhere. There is no way they go into next season, paying Flacco what they are paying them, with exactly none of the tight ends coming back -- meaning, for the second consecutive year, they will have allowed their QB's best receiving option walk from the team. No way in hell. If it means overpaying him or franchising him, I guarantee that happens before they let him walk.
