    My official bring back C-Mac thread



    Unless it was really ugly what happened last year between he and Harbaugh, I think it may be time to give C-Mac a call. I'm not in panic mode but we look pretty suspect in the secondary and I would think he could step right in and help. Not to mention the dude must be a little humbled these days.

    Here is where I stopped reading.

    It's well known that yes it was THAT ugly.

    Not to mention the fact that there are plenty of teams in the league who could use DB help, yet McAlister's phone's not ringing. Either his contract demands are too much, or the rest of the league sees him as a liability.

    Or maybe both.

    Not gonna happen. This is not the first "official" bring back C-Mac thread. For as many threads as we have had about this and every other "bring back" thread, none of tem have gotten the attention of the Ravens org.
    I'm normally not a praying man, but if you're up there, please save me Superman!

    I'll see your situation and raise you a situation...

    BRING BACK THE WHOLE 2000 DEFENSE!

    Every single player. Oh, wait, I'll grant you let's leave Ed Reed at FS and replace Kim Herring.

    NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

    NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Chris McAlister would come back against the Broncos and Marshall would burn him for 3 TDs. Then, what would you be saying?

    CMAC IS GARBAGE, along with EVERY other FA CB available right now. They haven't been playing FOR A REASON.

    Is it really our secondary or has our secondary always been mediocre and benefited from pressure on the QB!!!! Pressure makes secondaries look much better than they really are.

    There was a couple changes this year that have changed our play dramatically...

    #1 - DC - I still won't say that losing Rex breaks this D...but everyone can admit, when you change a coordinator, there is an adjustment period. Mattison is trying to bring his own flavor to the D, and I think he's trying to go from the "organized chaos" which could be spot on at times, and totally blowout at other times, to a balanced, more fundamental defense. Players have to learn different styles and calls.

    #2 - CB - We did make some changes here...Last year, we had CMac and Rolle to start. CMac was out most of the season, Rolle was back and forth with Frank Walker and Fabian filling in, along with Ivy. This year, we go with Fabian and Foxworth...two speedy, cover corners. These guys are not built to shutdown a WR. They are built to stick with fast WRs and stop the burn play. You will notice, the only real long TD catch we've given up this year was a swing pass to Sproles. But the fact is, we're built to concede the 5-10 yard pass to bigger receivers.

    #3 - Safeties - Ok, I'll finally admit it...Leonard was more of a threat in pass defense than Landry. Landry is built to play the run better.

    #4 - LBs - Losing Bart Scott and going to Gooden/McClain/Ellerbe is a bit of an adjustment. Bart was a big time gamer, and you have to give those three some time to grow into their role, like Bart had a few years to develop.

    Give it up on McAllister. Stop living in the past. He is not coming back, no matter what!

    How about getting Ronde Barder from Tampa. I'm sure he would like a shot to be on a contender his last couple of years. Is Rolle comming back or what?

    You think a slow, aging, career cover-2 corner is going to come in and help our secondary? Barber is great at what Tampa has asked him to do, which is play zone a majority of the time. Our defense, for some unknown reason, plays a lot of man with the corners.

    Barber just wouldn't fit into our scheme.

    I have heard that C-mac wants top corner money and that is one reason why nobody has touched him. I don't know if it's true or not, but i do know billick was asked about C-Mac in the offseason and he said he didn't see Chris as the type of guy that would play for vet minimum because he loves the game.

    I think C-Mac could help, and his off the field issues were personal demons that I feel anyone would deserve a second chance with, however it seems that once you enter Harbaugh's dog house there is no getting out. Who knows we may have a really good receiver in a healthy D-Will, but we will never find out as long as he is in that doghouse.

    Re: My official bring back C-Mac thread

    D Wil did play yesterday...you can see him on Mason's TD catch, throwing a block on the CB in the endzone, allowing Mason to dive in for the TD.

    We're not a team that generally goes 4 wide very often, and it's hard to throw D Wil out there when Washington is playing pretty well (and outplayed D Wil in the preseason as well)

    CMac wasn't "in a doghouse"...he was a locker room problem who just didn't get along with Harbaugh. Also, he wasn't all that good anymore, so we let him go. You can argue about who replaced him, but you can't argue that replacing him wasn't a bad idea, because he was out most of last season and we managed to hold our own with Fabian Washington, Samari Rolle, Frank Walker, and Corey Ivy (Also Oglesby).
