    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.

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

    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.

    Well, I came to say that I think Torrey Smith looks like a true bust. Yeah, I don't care that's it's only 4 games in. You can just tell. He's not an NFL player. I think Ozzie totally and completely blew this one.

    I'm sure someone will think I'm a Stooler fan now or something like that becuase I don't blindly follow everything Ozzie does. Oh well - go ahead and flame me now.
    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.

    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.

    I'm curious how many times this guy is going to post before people realize he is stirring the pot on purpose.

    Was your point of this thread to come up with something so stupid that poeple would say to ban you?

    OR

    That your point is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul

    Doesn't that constitute trolling...?

    Ok please tell me what that you've seen this preseason to label our 2nd round pick a bust? By the way, the kool-aid is as cols as they get for me right now. Sunday is that start of the season and when I will see what this team can do.


    Just was wondering since you can just tell what is going to be or not going to be...Any idea what tonight's lottery numbers will be?

    Unless the OP starts upping his game and offers something other than a needle poke, then yes, I will consider it trolling and will trash the thread.

    Stirring the pot just to get a rise out of people is something for The Sun, not here.
