    Re: Ryan Clark in Purple?



    I guess every offseason we will have interest in a Steeler retread.
    Like Harrison, not happening

    By the time any playoff game in Denver happens, the Ravens will have had an entire season to get a draft pick ready to play at an acceptable level in the NFL.

    Ah I stand corrected. Thanks for finding that one.

    Why would you think Ward wouldn't be an option anymore even if we signed Clark or whoever else at FS?
    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.

    Yeah, he's still made some remarks that have pissed us off though.

    Remember the "it's not a rivalry until the Ravens beat us" statement? lol

    Actually I would strongly advocate drafting Ward in the 2nd even if we signed Clark. The Ravens could run a really nice 3 safety package in some nickel situations with Elam dropping down to play the slot, where he has quite a bit of experience and could be a threat to blitz or cover. Kind of how the Steelers used Polamalu in the past and the Giants used Antrel Rolle.

    That would also help cover up our weakness at #3 CB if Chykie Brown or Asa Jackson don't end up playing that well.

    I knew that was coming (again).
    I've upped my standards. Up yours.

    Only if there is no signing bonus, and no guarantee .... meaning we plug a roster hole pre-draft without committing ourselves to much more than a fighting chance for the 53. Anything else wait, or let him go elsewhere
    To understand paranoid people better, follow them around.

    I'm not saying move Webb, I'm saying move a rookie before he takes a snap in the NFL. It happens regularly at other positions, why not at CB to FS?

    I was saying the same thing...it's just like WR...just because we signed Smith doesn't mean that we shouldn't still draft a WR in the first 3 rounds.

    Clark won't make the Ravens pass on Ward in the second if they really like him...and from all indications, we apparently do.

    Re: Ryan Clark in Purple?

    Best thing I can say is the dude hits people. Can't say he's ever been on my wish list though. Old and certainly not the centerfielder I was hoping for. I don't hold the Steeler thing against him though. I don't feel toward him the way I feel toward Hines, Woodley and especially Harrison, who I just can't stand. In fact, it would be kind of fun when we played Pitt and he was trying to lay their guys out. If we get him I just hope he doesn't disappear altogether like Ed Reed did. He does bring veteranosity though, maybe too much, but we probably have the youngest safety group in the league. I'm sure Ozzie would still draft a FS. Clark's obviously a stopgap.

    Ryan Clark is a bad fit for a lot of good reasons, e.g., can't play in high altitude, old, not a playmaker, etc.

    But all those things aside: I hate him and hope he never plays for us.

    I never said he wouldn't. But, to me, Ward looks like a day one starter. And Clark, again, is horrible.
