    Re: Ravens Roster Moves

    I disagree. If he's not healthy, he's not going to help us on the field. Putting him on IR allows us to bring up a healthy body and I believe we can't make roster moves during the playoffs, correct?

    Justin Bannan playede EXTREMELY well this season.

    I sat in the rain in Denver and watched that guy make plays all over the field.

    There is no way in hell he was IR'd for anything else but an injury that will prevent him from playing the rest of the season.

    Players get IR'd with turf toe. And a dislocated toe might sound like nothing but it's a major problem, especially for a guy weighing over 300 lbs.

    If Ray Lewis had a dislocated toe, he'd be IR'd too.

    I was very disappointed to see Bannan shut down for the season. He was playing like a starter. Clearly he's not as consistent as the guys in front of him, but when he was in the game he was getting good movement on the OL in front of him and being disruptive. While his loss won't have the same impact as the loss of Sams, it's still pretty significant. Remember, Ngata is a rookie and history tells us that most rookies start to wear down at about this time. Losing the guy helping to keep Ngata fresh can't be underestimated.

    We definitely need some contribution from Dwan Edwards to keep this line fresh and playing well.

    Re: Ravens Roster Moves

    I would like to clarify what I have tried to say. First, I am not saying Bannon did not play well, I am saying the team considered him expendable. He never seriously challenged to start, did not see significant playing time and did not even play in 4 of the last 5 games and that was not due to injury. Second, I have no idea if he is regarded highly in the locker room or not. What I am saying is his injury is new and is normally a 2 week injury (without ligament damage requiring surgery but that is not listed for Bannon) but for some reason, he gets IR'd. Since this comes out of left field, IMO, you have to look beyond the injury for an explaination. My suggestion is that they needed a roster spot and Bannon was the odd man out. Maybe they wanted to protect Atiyyah Ellison or some other player; teams use the IR to protect players and maybe the Ravens did it here.

    MdLawBirds....maybe, it is always a possibility. It is also a possibility that we are not the doctors who are treating the injury and the injury maybe more serious than you personally think.
