    Oh, they can afford to trade Kelce now because they just signed a nice un drafted rookie at Center in Tyler Orlovsky. We could have signed him but they apparently don't see the holes like us fans do
    They were considering cutting Jason Kelsey anyway. It's not because of some UDFA either. They have Stefan Wisnewski.

Wagner was coming off a disappointing season and Zuttah was still our center. People on here were speculating that Steve Smith would not return from his Achilles tear. Remember all the pics of one calf being tiny. Joe Flacco was not able to participate. Perriman was also not participating. We had no idea if Pitta was going to be able to play. Boyle and Waller were suspended. Ducasse was not even part of the team yet. Trestman was our OC. Castillo was the Oline coach. Last year there was no commitment to the run by Trestman. MM inherited an offense mid season and really could not make many changes during the season. The offense is in a better place now than it was a year ago. MM has a history of more balanced offenses than what we saw last year. Greg Roman is definitely a run first offensive mind. A change at Oline coach is a welcome addition. We have Lewis and Stanley who are no longer rookies.

    The Ravens have 7m in cap space and can clear another 5m by cutting Watson and Arrington. The Ravens are also paying Jeremy Zuttah not to play this year. They clearly think that no matter who they put in at C is going to be an upgrade. There will be some quality veteran Oline guys who hit the market. The TE position could not be any worse than where we were last year. I believe the Oline will be fine. I doubt we are able to add anyone to wr spot. At least not anyone who is going to make an impact.
    AS CURRENTLY CONSTRUCTED I stand by my statements. Theres no center no one knows who is playing RT. No one even really knows how good Lewis is. No one knows whether or not he can play RT. The team lost its number 1 go to receiver and its best back is only going to play 3/4 of the season at most. I'd say there is plenty to be concerned about. And last years offensive squad was not good at all

    wicked, I'm not being contrary here, just a reminder : Elam, A. Brown, Kindle, Brooks, all high defensive draft choices that failed. If a team drafts a higher percentage of defensive players then it stands to reason that more of them will succeed. Perhaps not a higher percentage, but a higher number... Bc

    Depth my friend. Depth of a really good young Center behind Wisnewski is why they now afford to trade Kelce.

    How many posters here wanted Kelce even before Zuttah was gone?

    The point of the statement is the Eagles have a luxury of a move like that because they don't have the holes at Center and WR positions like the Ravens do?

    I would take Kelce any day of the week over Jensen.

    From what I've seen, Orlovsky isn't any better of a prospect than Matt Skura was/is. That's why they were undrafted.

    You left off a few names

    Courtney Upshaw ( Decent player but never lived up to expectations) We could have found a guy much later if not undrafted who could have played the same role.
    Terrance Cody (absolute bust) Was never in shape or motivated. This name should ring heavy with all the Ozzie apologists on this board.
    timmy Jernigan ( Had a few flashes but never played or lived up to where he was selected )

    Law Firm of McCauley, Dickey and McMillan.
    The WR corp in GB is full of 2nd Rd draft picks. Nelson. Cobb. Adams. Even montgomery is a 3rd Rd pick.

    They just signed Bennett at TE.

    They surrounded Rodgers with weapons. They've invested in the offense.

    You are being intellectually dishonest.

    Are you employed by the Ravens?

    How do you come to this comparison?

    Matt Skura from Duke played with Acc competiion.

    Tyler Orlosky played in the big 12, way better completion. The guy was a redshirt guard, 3 year starter and team captain. He sure seems a hell of a lot more NFL ready than Skura.

    LOL, now this is the funniest statement since the draft.

    The Ravens have Weapons?

    Who?
    What are their names?
    When did they get here?

    But even if that bat shit crazy statement was true you still throw out there (Flacco needs to make the players better) statement.

    What team in the NFL besides the cheating clowns up in New England have a great offense with below average talent surrounding them? ??? Even the Patriots offense improved when they got talents like Moss, Welker, Gronk etc.... It wasn't always Hogan and Edelman likes there.

    No team in the league has a worse WR group than us. Not 1 team on paper looks worse right now

    saw, I left them out because they did have some measure of success even if for a limited time... Bc
