    Re: Future Ring of Honor inductees?

    jburns, LOL. Obviously, humor does not translate well into writing. You need some sort of seltzer bottle emoticon. I'm actually surprised no one commented on the "where would we be without Mike Flynn?" question. Well certainly there would have been many more delay of game penalties without a center to snap the ball, and it would have left a large hole in the center of the line that would have impacted both passing and running plays.

    What will determine who makes the Ring of Honor is the pace of induction. If the Ring of Honor is delivered only like a retired number in baeball, then we should take 50 years or more with a name every 5-10 years.

    If, however, it is treated like the Orioles Hall of Fame, then it will be the Ring of Adequate. Such Oriole greats as Doug Decinces, Dennis Martinez, Hal Brown, Dick Hall, and Gene Woodling have already been inducted, as has Bob Brown (a tremendously nice guy who was traveling secretary for the Orioles for a number of years).

    Sadly, I think the large empty concrete lip already induced Art M. to make a below-the-line induction. I'm hoping the new management will take the longer view.

    Re: Future Ring of Honor inductees?

    WOW!! some of these names make NO SENSE!!

    Ray, JO, and Stover will all be there. The biggest name in the end should be Ozzie Newsome! He is the one who brought in our draft picks that turn into Pro-bowlers!! Reed, Heap, Mac, Suggs.....etc. These are the same names that will probably go up in the end as well.

    DEFINATELY Ozzie Newsome. No doubt. Now, I started this to ask opinions of who deserves to be in the Ring of Honor. So far, it's all been blasting "Mike Flynn? Are you serious?" I never said he IS getting in. It's just my personal opinion that if he made it, I would support it. He's a blue-collar workhorse who's been an important and solid contributor year after year after year. Since 1997. I said earlier that no Ravens fan wants it to be the "Ring of Adequate". Filmstudy made a good point with the O's. Yeah, there's alot of guys deserving. I think Woodson and Burnett and Siragusa are more deserving right now for the Ring than anyone. Especially Jamal (only because of the off-field issues). But I think by the time the Ravens are wearing "XX" on their jersey's celebrating their 20th Anniversary, M&T will have the names of Newsome, Billick, Ogden, Stover, R. Lewis, Heap, Woodson, Reed, McAlister, Burnett, and Siragusa. The only reason why I leave Suggs off is because he could be gone after this year and he's only what, 25 years old? Now if he stays here for a longterm deal, then that's a different story. I just don't see why everyone's making such a big stink about having alot of Ravens inducted into our Ring of Honor. Isn't that suppose to be a GOOD thing? And I don't think the Ravens are gonna be allowing guys in left and right. The only mistake they've made, and I can GUARANTEE that pretty much every single Ravens fan agrees with me on this, is having Earnest Byner up there. But these guys I've listed are deserving. It's a GOOD thing we've had classy and talented Ravens throughout our history.

    Re: Ring of Honor poll

    Personally, I think it should be someone who started AND ended his career with the Ravens.

    Ray Lewis
    Jonathan Ogden

    Those right now are the only two I can think of. If he can get healthy and get back to being productive, I would put Todd Heap in there eventually as well.

    Anyone who left this organization to play elsewhere should not be in the ROH. JMHO.

    Re: Ring of Honor poll

    Ray and JO obviously. Reed is still young, we will see.

    McAlister has been a real class act the last couple of years and a huge credit to the organization. I don't know if anyone else noticed, but I thought his post-game comments after the Cleveland game were a reminder how far he's come as a stand-up guy. So he can be on my bubble.

    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.

    Re: Ring of Honor poll

    Chris McAlister has been nothing but an elite CB for pretty much his whole career so far. He has been considered a "shut down" corner for a long time. 3 time Pro-Bowler, including the 2006 season. He was drafted by the Ravens, and if he retires a Raven then he belongs on the ring.

    Matt Stover is a no brainer.

    Re: Ring of Honor poll

    Jamal Lewis If it weren't for Jamals many off the field issues this would probably be a yes. He brought as many negatives as positives to the Raven organization so it's a no for me.

    Edwin Mulitalo Great guy he just didn't do enough special things on the field.

    Re: Ring of Honor poll

    Oh yeah. Matt Stover obviously.

    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.
