    Re: If Gaither showed up to practice...



    Well, now we know why Hue Jackson's crew did not bring him in for keeps.

    You are correct. The other $225K was to be paid out in cheese burgers and fries (to get him up to playing weight), plus massages for his bad back... Bc

    I'm willing to give Oher another year to settle in and see what happens at left tackle.

    Here's my bet: Oher stays at left tackle, Yanda at right guard, and they sign a veteran to play right tackle. (if Cousins fails to show much at right guard they may cut him and sign a second veteran to play behind Yanda -- and perhaps start the season at center).

    I think Ozzie is just waiting another couple weeks for roster cut downs and he'll pounce on a veteran or two.
    Good bet.

    Oher did not play terribly last year. If my memory has not betrayed me, the Ravens did not give up any sacks against the Steelers in the first game last season. Oher later began dealing with a knee issue. It was only his first year at LT. Gaither's first year at LT was not spectacular either. The Ravens went to max protection several times that year, against the tougher defenses they faced.

    Oher's early success at RT is working against him. Now, people are skeptical as to whether or not he can improve at LT. I believe he can and will.

    Ex, IMO moving a player from his dominant position (Oher = RT, Yanda = RG) to another to cover a deficiency does downgrade the OLine as a whole. Oher's early success works FOR him if he continues to play @ RT. It's not his fault that Gaither has his "problems", and he had to move over to cover LT. Same as Yanda had to move to his right to cover RT, when Oher was transferred. Personally, I do not believe that Oher can be the Pro Bowl player he could be @ RT. IMO the Ravens need a sufficient LT to make this OLine it's strongest... Bc

    I love that we have a thread about a former player, that is five pages long. He got a one year, min vet deal because of his injury, not rumors from bad past behavior. If the rumors were true, the first guy going after him, wouldn't be his former Ravens coach, who knows him. He let him go, because of the injury, nothing else. He even said he would like to revisit it, once the injury was healed. You guys think what you want though.

    It's the same guy, different angle. If he was fat, it would show in his face...he looks the same as always.

    He lost the weight because of the back injury. You're right, the Ravens didn't give him permission to get hurt.

    HUH???

    Ok when did said back injury happen? And when did said weight loss happen?

    HINT.... The loss was first.

    He hurt his back in the Patriots game...you know the one where he left on a stretcher. Back injuries are very tricky, to those who have them. More amazing was how quickly he came back from that devestaing collision, to help his teammates to the playoffs. Kinda like the year before, when he played with one arm.

    I'm gonna go back there, Sean, even though I know you are passionate in your defense of Gaither. The dude lost all that weight first and then hurt his back. I am still convinced Rosenhaus had a master plan to coerce the Ravens into playing Gaither at LT, and that plan "backfired" figuratively, literally and physically. I used to question whether or not his back was actually injured, but I believe now that it truly was - and I also believe his unsupervised weight loss contributed to the injury.

    Looking at his Chiefs TC pic, though, I gotta say, that tummy blubber does not look that pronounced to me.
