    Re: Boller torn Labrum?



    After seeing Boller's potential ruined by being thrown into the fire too early, I definitely don't want to see Flacco go the same route.

    Although I did predict that he'd be playing by Game 9...

    Dude, there are people in this town that I think would celebrate if he died in a car wreck.

    Thousands of people cheering when he got hurt have the mentality of wanting to see Boller get a season ending injury.
    Somehow I doubt those cheering morons all vanished off the face of the earth.

    How exactly did starting too early ruin him? He's had 5 years to learn the position and is no better than the day he was drafted.

    He was overrated in college, a reach of a pick and nowhere near a first rounder. Ozzie fell in love at first sight. Boller looked like a qb, that is it. Please prove me wrong.

    i dont look so dumb now do i?

    like i said from the jump lets sign a veteran to go with the 2 BUMS we already have.granted boller is now hurt and it could be serious and smith has a sore throat.but niether might be ready to go sept 7 or even after that.

    i have said lets give flacco the ball and let him learn on the fly.or bring in a vet who has had success.so would it hurt if we called up culpepper like hey buddy wanna come play for the ravens for a year????????
    At the time you first suggested bringing in Dante it was a stupid idea IMO. But things change day to day in the NFL. I don't see us bringing in Dante and would prefer it if we didn't, but it makes a hella lot more sense now then it did 2 weeks ago.

    I don't have to prove you wrong because it's my OPINION.

    I feel that throwing him into the fire immediately, vice allowing him to sit on the sidelines, carry a clipboard and LEARN, hindered his development tremendously.

    Kyle Boller and Carson Palmer were the first two Pac-10 QBs picked in the 2003 NFL Draft.

    Carson Palmer sat his entire first season with the Bungles and it paid dividends.
    Kyle Boller was inserted immediately, got injured his 9th game in Saint Louis (I was there) with a 5-3 record and was never the same.

    Based on that example and many others over the course of my football-watching career, I don't consider starting a rookie QB in the NFL, unless there's just no other option, a wise move for his long term development.

    im not to sure if i had posted it and very sorry if i didnt.but i liked the thought of him coming in at the beginging of camp name him the starter and let boller and smith fight to see who makes the team.with that said your right we need something and we need something FAST.

    Re: Boller torn Labrum?

    as for kyle boller being ruined because he was thrown into the wolves.well that sounds like some b/s if you ask me.is P.Manning ruined?what about ben from the sorry ass steelers?lets go back in time when aikmen from the cowboys went 1-15 with the cowboys and turned out to win 3 super bowls?are all these guys ruined or were they?thats just a few examples....there are plenty more.


    so what i am getting at here kyle just doesnt and never had what it takes to be very good in the NFL.he is ALWAYS rattled.big game,meaningless game,pressure,no pressure.he sucks just cant do it.flacco seems to be a little more relaxed at this point then what kyle did at this time when he started early.there aint any wolves and there isnt any reason why flacco shouldnt get a chance to go out there and compete on opening day and start for the baltimore ravens.

    Just my opinion: Culpepper gives us the best chance of being competitive this season of all the names being tossed about. And I think that Culpepper has a better chance of returning to his pre-injury form this year than Flacco has a chance of having the game slow down for him, or of Smith passing for 50% or growing a few inches.

    My hope is that the FO is just leaking a bunch of names - Beck, Bramlat, Hill etc. - as a stalking horse to posture Culpepper's agent to back down his demands. Culpepper has no other option out there where he could be starting within a few weeks.

    If not Culpepper: please give us Simms, Harrington, even Redman. I fear a big ass losing season under Flacco too early, or under Smith at all.

    According to Ozzie, Boller Doesn't Need Surgery at this time, and may still be able to play this year.

    Hey Crazy, I didn't mean it like that. I know even Boller's worst critics (the ones here, anyway) wouldn't wish an injury on him. My comment was a bit of understatement, the proverbial whistling past the graveyard.

    I should have put some kind of smiley or something there. This one's for you: :toast:
    Festivus

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    IMO it's purely a smokescreen.

    To IR Boller now with surgery takes away what little leverage they have now in either trading for or signing a QB.

    I be very surprised if this time next week we didn't have a new QB on the team and Boller on IR.

    Yup, I took it as a load of crap myself.
    I think the key words here are "at this time".

    If it was me, I wouldn't trade for anybody right now.
    I'd wait to see who gets cut.
    We're already spending draft picks to fill holes with injurys for roational and depth guys.
    I doubt whoever we may get to replace Boller will be looked at to come in and start.
    I'm a thinkin' they're more looking at somebody to be the #3 and are set on Flacco and Smith as the #1 & #2 QBs.
    Not necessarily in that order though. although that wouldn't surprise me right now either.

    Hopefully we can get through tommorrow night with Flacco in one piece and see what shakes loose next week.

    What a freakin' mess!!

    Bramlet was just recently cut by SD.

    I know there was some interest.

    Maybe it just happened?
