    Re: McGahee Knee To Be Scoped



    mcgahee just gotten his knee scoped.he played fairly well last year and even more so for the lack of passing game we had.give the man some credit.yes,i agree him showing up out of shape and not reporting to more then one of the OTA's is bullshit.but let the man get into the year and THEN judge.it doesnt take only one player to win a super bowl.but if we win one in the next 3 years with him and he rushes for 1,500 yards all you haters will jump right on the #23 band wagon

    Ravens winning the Super Bowl in the next 3 years is just as likely as me beating Michael Phelps in the 200m Fly. Our front office just does not know how to assemble a legit SB contender.

    I am starting to agree w/ the view our FO is not as good as its reputation.

    The depth and salary cap issues have been continuing problems and they need to get better sooner vs later.

    Depth yes.

    Cap issues though? Last two years we were fine with the cap. There are teams out there that are in cap jail every year. We hardly come close to that problem.

    All teams bump up against the cap from time to time -- thats what it is designed to do.

    Ive been following a team called the Baltimore Ravens. Not sure who you're looking at.

    Lets recap ....

    2008 -- we're in moderate cap trouble, but still under so far at $5 Million.
    2007 -- under; $5.7 Million
    2006 -- under; $15 Million
    2005 -- under (not by much; depending on the site, it varies from $4 Million to $7 Million)
    2004 -- cant find any data but memory serves me as this was an over year
    2003 -- ditto. over big time

    So they ride the tide that all teams ride.

    I've never seen you swim, but methinks this is a Streeeeeeetch! ANY team has more chance to win the SB in the next 3 years than you or anyone has to beat Mr. Phelps, I'm-a-thinkin'!

    Except that you at least have depth at the RB position when you look at Ray Rice, and now the possibility of even LeRon McClain possibly getting some snaps back there.

    I just don't think you pick up a Shawn Alexander knowing you have to dump one of these guys when McGahee does come back.

    No I think a guy more like Jesse Chatman or Musa Smith, both potentially on the chopblock up in New Jersey are more inline with what we may need before Willis gets back.

    Houston Raven,

    In regards to salary cap, its not whether the Ravens are in jail or not, its how they divvy it up. The Front Office devotes too much of it to our 'star players', and those players' contracts are way more than they deserve. I would have liked to save some of the cap to attract a better than league minimum OT this year. Maybe if the FO did not overpay McGahee & Heap & some others... they could have had some extra dough to attract Barry Sims earlier. Sims sure would have helped considering the current situation. Perennial good teams like the Patriots, Colts, and the Eagles (last year notwithstanding) are much better at manipulating the cap with their players. Our future cap situation is going to get interesting with Suggs, Scott, Ray, Ngata, Jason Brown... all up for renewals. If all our high paid star players stay healthy, sure we can have a very successful season, but that is not realistic in today's NFL.

    ravensnhokies,

    I dont dispute anything you say. Fanman made the claim the Ravens had perenial cap issues. I was pointing out that it was incorrect. Compared to other teams, we do not have nearly the level of management that teams like the Raiders, Cowboys and Redskins have.

    How that money is divided is certainly open for debate.

    I hope this was only a clean up.

    I'm starting to worry about his health.

    If I read correctly that is what it was.

    But I'm with you. I'm starting to worry a little too. I hope Ray Rice is everything he's cracked up to be.

    O, they are gonna stick to the story that it was only a clean up.

    And it certainly could've been. But if it wasn't, they aren't gonna tell anyone that on August 13.

    First of all, we had one of the biggest cap purges in the history of the cap in 2002.

    The are strapped right now.

    They give out ENORMOUS contracts to star players which hampers then when signing mid-level players and players for depth.
