    Guys like Ed Reed and Ray Lewis can be had at the tail end of the 1st round.


    Drafting high just means more risk.


    Yeah, its petty, but I understand why he's saying it.....

    No, this is not to be understood or forgiven. This sort of fan sentiment is the sort of thing that led to Irsay moving the Colts.


    You root for you own team. Period. F*ck draft position, or politics. You never bet against your own team.


    This phenomenon in sports fandom has to die, that you care about the politics of the sport more than winning itself.

    So when we got JO in the top 5 we blew it? Give me a break.

    Sad to say this but losing today increases our chances of winning in the future. We need help at different positions. Picking at higher positions throughout the draft helps us. Winning today doesnt help.

    Baltimore pride shouldnt get in the way of this. Lets all plan on a loss and move forward next season.
    WOW! I feel so fortunate that the Ravens did what they had to do to make this happen. Thank you. My Heart is with the Raven....My Heart is with Baltimore and its great fans. What can I say. Here We Go!!! --Ray Lewis
    No, Thank you Ray...

    I'm with you -- this thread baffles me. Any Ravens fan who is okay losing to an 0-13 team is not a real fan.

    If, as a player, you don't come into the game being certain of a victory then you are wasting your time, and your team mates time. The Ravens don't need players who simply go through the motions. they need players with heart, and character. The coaches should be watching for players that just mail it in, and mail them a one way ticket out of town!

    I was numb 2 hours ago. I don't know where I am at now.
    I am just glad I don't have any alcohol in the house.

    I'm still not numb about the loss, I've been numb since Stover missed that FG. Looked like there was a problem with the snap or the hold and Matt didn't get his foot around the ball or something, but damn, I'm in a complete and utter daze.

    I defy anyone to be in a good mood right now about how this defeat sets us up. It's not even as if it sets us up for a good pick. There's 8 teams with 4 losses or worse right now and we've played one of the strongest schedules in the league and have beaten two of the other teams down here!

    that was fugly. And to boot, I was sitting with several Miami fans who were (understandably) elated. I turned down several offers of free beer, and for me to turn down free beer, that is RARE.

    Please right this ship, NOW!
