    Re: I've Come to Terms with K. Boller



    After all we've been through with Boller the biggest mistake the front office could do is to let him go.

    He won't be elite -- but I have a feeling that if someone will let him make the big play that some of those other issues -- tripping, not hanging in the pocket -- will become less -- and he could be a QB in the top half of the league.

    Thank god for no Boller / Wright debates this year . . .

    And to be honest, I think Brown is now a very big upgrade over Mule. I wasn't sold on Edwin at the beginning of the year. Kept hearing what great shape he was in etc..... but it was pretty much the same old Edwin. Slowfooted and often injured.

    Either way, Im excited about a Brown/Chester combo. A few people have said to me they think Chester will become a center and we know Brown played center in college. I would hope we'd grab another young G this offseason and really solidify the middle of the OL for years to come.

    NFL's stat pages for linemen always confuse me. He did start 3 games. But they have him listed as playing in 9, and "Did Not Play" in 6. I have no idea what that means.

    I agree. I think it was important to get Mule back into playing shape this year, but Brown has really done well next to Ogden. And maybe helping Flynn out too which could be why Flynn hasn't been blown up so much.

    So the question becomes, what happens when Ed becomes healthy?

    I totally agree -- Brown has played very well. I might not call him a very big upgrade, but the OL has actually pass-blocked better (IMHO) since Mule went out. There hasn't been a drop-off, that's for sure. The OL has been much better at pass protection than I expected at the start of the season.

    And while I think that McNair is very good at avoiding a pass rush, to give him all the credit is a little silly. The pass protection has improved largely because of the blocking, and that might be due to a combination of factors, including coaching, but whatever the reasons, it's a welcome change.

    Yea, they have "did not play" for Ogden for every game. I went to NFL.com.

    I said it as soon as he got injured that we saw the last of Mule in a Ravens uniform. He's just too slow and never healthy to warrant keeping him IMO.

    Im certainly not giving him all the credit. I don't think anyone really was.

    Re: I've Come to Terms with K. Boller

    As far as "coming to terms with Boller" is concerned, the ONLY way I could see Boller having a second chance as a starter here is after a lot of the current vets depart. While players such as Clayton, Suggs, Bart, DWill, Terry, Pashos, Landry, etc., will be able to grow with Boller and tolerate him, guys like Ray, Reed, Mason (and don't buy the company line he touts on his show. He is not feeling Boller), and CMac will continue to view Boller with skeptical eyes.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    Sigh........

    So he told you this personally, did he? Because I remember last year him telling a radio personality off the record (one who does not like Boller BTW), that he still had confidence in him.

    So what did he tell you that was different?
