    Re: Free agent the Ravens should sign.



    I'm sure Roy Williams would love to escape Detroit. He'll definitely be looked at. I think Anquan Boldin's on the last year of his contract with the Cardinals. I'd look at him as well.
    Sick and tired of transplants. If Pissburgh is so great, carry your black-lung asses back there.

    Re: Free agent the Ravens should sign.

    How are you hating on Heap? He had a few drops, but he also had some body shots in the blocking game.

    He also went Decon Jones on the Clown who tried to take him down in the open field. Did you catch how he head slapped him and then changed hands and gave him a bdy blow, open hand pimp slap. He went Chuck Norris Kung Fu mustach darth vader grip for a second there.

    I just want some depth at TE becasue they get hurt. Gates, Shockey, Winslow and LJ Smith in Philly have all missed as much time as Heap recently. That is just a collision position that is very dangerous and tough on every play.

    I'm not "hating on Heap".

    I'm just not wearing Todd Heap colored glasses that distort reality and make me think he's a top 5 TE.

    He isn't.

    He would probably be in the top 3 slot receivers in the game period. I do not think the man can't catch and i do, as you do, appreciate his ability after he catches the ball.

    That said, is that the 'job description' of a TE?

    hell no it isn't.

    a TE has to block, if a TE can't then he's a LIABILITY, not an asset.

    The greatest TEs to ever play were more like an offensive guard with hands than a wide receiver in a big body, that is what Heap is, a big slow WR.

    If you think for one minute Heap is the best TE the Ravens have ever had then i want some of what you're smoking. Shannon Sharp was everything Heap is but he was a TE first, it's really not a comparison.

    I don't criticize his pass catching abilities, i criticize his spot on the roster, he belongs in the receiving corps, he's like a big slow Brandon Stokley, he's not a small Shannon Sharp.

    Face it we need a TE, and we need to use Heap at what he's good at and stop letting him be a liability in the running game.

    Would you ask Derrik Masson to line up next to Terry Allen or Willie Anderson and take on the linebacker or DE lined up over him?

    If so then i'm glad you're not the coach, that's about how bad Heap is in the blocking area. By using a guy in that position we're limiting the options the team has over all.

    Picture Heap lining up in the slot, doing what he does best and going in motion a lot. He could be quite a distraction and could scare defenses because he's almost like covering a TE, but as fast as an average possession receiver.

    It's a sweet image, almost as sweet as Heaps blocking is ugly.

    PS. i don't expect a warm welcome because i think Heap is the most over rated TE in the league.

    I enjoy watching people who don't see to remember football is a team game, that is all about strategy and playing within a set system, flail away trying to defend a guy who can only perform half his positions duties.

    ?

    Shannon Sharpe: 6'-2", 228 (http://www.nfl.com/players/shannonsh...e?id=SHA468534)

    Todd Heap: 6'-5", 250
    (http://www.baltimoreravens.com/Peopl...Todd_Heap.aspx)

    I would never argue that Heap is better than Shannon, but Todd is not a small guy.

    There is another theory which states that this - has - already - happened…

    fair point, but he's the worst blocking, most injury prone 250 pound tight end i've ever seen.

    also to look at him i'd have said 225 tops, he just doesn't even look, or play that big. must be cause he's tall.

    EDIT: one other thought, Sharp wasn't a great blocker, simply a good one.

    That is crazy talk. Did you see Todd's man make any tackles in the run game? They have him playing tackle and blocking DEs in the unbalanced looks. What are you talking about he can not block.

    Did you see the open hand heap slap? That is worth 3 drops and a missed block.

    He gets hurt but less than Shockey and less than Winslow. TEs get hurt. That is why I decided to only play DE. Much rather hit than be hit. TEs take some of the nastiest hits in football.

    Re: Free agent the Ravens should sign.

    I can see where Morbius is coming from, but my outlook on Heap isn't at that level of pessimism. Heap can do a lot to repair his image with some fans by going out there and getting back to his 2005 and 2006 form...

    I personally think he has a lot left in his tank and will get back to being a Top 5 TE...

    UNLEASH THE BEASTS!!!!
