    Question If Boller is placed on IR would you...



    Sign Trent Dilfer?

    Dilfer once said that he always wanted to someday return to the Ravens. Might the time be now?

    NOTE: This isn't my endorsement by any means, just a simple question.

    Hmmm... The story of redemption for Dilfer would be legendary, but I doubt if he's looking to return.

    UNLEASH THE BEASTS!!!!

    No. I really don't see what benefit he would be.

    I think he'd be welcomed back with open arms by pretty much everyone in the city right now. That's a pretty bad slap in the face to Billick though, so I'm not convinced the organization would do it.

    I'd love it if Dilfer were willing to come out of retirement to come play for us. When he retired though, he really sounded like he was done.

    It would be a great story, and I don't think it would be a slap in the face to Billick at all since they seem to have patched things up. But I can't see how it could happen. One of the main reasons Trent called it a career was because of his offseason injury (to his knee, IIRC). Besides, he has a sweet gig at ESPN now, and I'm guessing he's not going to walk away from that after he's already started, and months after he retired.

    So it's fun to think about, but it will never happen.

    Agree with Ravenous ....

    Good story but it will be hard to walk away from his ESPN money.

    That would be great. I would love to hear Ozzie explain once again that it was an organizational decision to move on from Dilfer. You may remember, but I seriously doubt it, that Billick wanted Brad Johnson who had no interest in playing with the awful offensive talent here.

    Trent is done, you could see it the past few years. He is getting paid good $$$ by ESPN to work in the studio. Great story, maybe he can sign a 1 day contract so he can retire as a RAVEN!! Thanks Trent

    Re: If Boller is placed on IR would you...

    he retired due to an Achilles tendon injury, so if he signed, it would only be to hold a clipboard...

    I would think it'd be a nice story, but I don't think he'd do it. I think he'd be more open to assisting in camp next year as a coaching assistant.

    honestly, if Boller goes on IR, I think we're looking at whoever gets cut on Saturday for his replacement.

    I think how its funny that the Sun Paper still lists Vinny Testeverde as one of the veteran QB's still out there....are they serious?? I do think that would be better then dilfer...come full circle....vinny started here in 96 and can come back to baltimore for one more year to retire! hahaha (sarcastic)

    well out of the remaining players from last year, Testeverde would be the best mentor. I don't want a Daunte Culpepper or Aaron Brooks mentoring Flacco, Kelly Holcomb and Tim Rattay were never that good anyway, and Craig Nall and Jaime Martin barely qualify as experienced QBs. I can't think of anyone else sitting out there waiting.

    Only if Culpepper, Simms, Griese, Garcia, Redman, Harrington were not available. But if that case, compared to the stiffs that we have on the payroll right now: hell yeah.
