    Okay, I won't blast you. You have the right to an opinion. But, for the sake of discussion:

    You get to be GM, and you even get the benefit of seeing these guys throughout preseason. What would you have done instead with the 58th pick instead of selecting Torrey Smith? Keep in mind the Ravens' needs at the time.

    You're on the clock - you have ten minutes.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinions. It's just that sometimes their opinions are wrong, misguided, and fool of asshatery.

    Try the scout message board or Baltimore sun board. Your I.Q. would fit better there. This board is too advanced and difficult for you. We drink Kool Aid that's flavored with intelligence.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    Your still allowed to have an opinion, just don't expect everyone to agree with it. Now hopefully those who don't agree can have some intelligent discussions with you about it.

    Personally I still think it's too early to tell, the guy needs a couple real games under his belt.

    Actually, sadly - I did a backflip when we drafted Torry. I would have drated him too if I was Ozzie. In fact, I was on this very board that night in late April flaming Ozzie and saying he had no balls if he didn't take Torrey smith.

    Maybe I'm just disapointed in him so far and took it out on others instead. I'm going to apologize, take my purple ball, and go home now.

    It's cool if you expected him to be better than he has been and you are disappointed in that but don't crush the player or the team for having your own expectations foiled.

    Drew Brees was a 2nd rounder, and most people in SD thought he was a bust. And that was after 3 years of mediocre performances.

    Let's give the kid one bad preseason and see what he can do in the regular season. Who knows, maybe he suddenly gets it after a week or two and starts pushing even Evans for the spot.

    I am not going to blast you but I think this might be a bit premature. Now, I will say the post above does not provide me any insight.... So state your case: why do you think he is a bust, what qualities is he lacking, what evidence have you seen to support your opinion... Etc.

    I would say the one thing I have seen from him that really concerns me is he catches every ball with his chest not his hands which is a huge red flag for a receiver to me.

  11. Re: Ain't the Kool-Aid Cold Today

    I understand your concerns and I have my concerns about T. Smith and I'm not questioning your fandum or love for the Ravens...However, not having mini-camps or OTA's? Yeah, let's give up on every draft pick this year who hasn't gotten it. Get a grip, it's going to be alright

    Re: Ain't the Kool-Aid Cold Today

    Wow... if we were to go by this posters logic, we would pretty much have to cut 85% of our rookies.

    I thought Torrey looked a little better last nite. He's a work in progress at skill postion that takes time to craft. Hoepfully we see him in there a bit this season and see what he's got.
