    But considering he probably worshiped Johnny U as a kid, it must pain him to own a team now with a baffoon behind center that can't string two good games together or put the team on his shoulders.
    Yea, now Flacco's a baffoon? And, it's buffoon. I'd get that right before I'd call anybody else that...

    He's like a good coach, in that he puts his team (his organization) in the best position to succeed.

    Whether they execute on the field (or in the front office or coaching rooms) is mostly out of his control.

    Put it this way...the Ravens could have a much, much, much worse owner.

    Just look around the division, or down the road, or across the street in the Warehouse.

    Great guy, still local. You can run into him in Anne Arundel County. Doesn't act the billionaire and I can say that from experience.

    I've seen him twice in the Woodfire right there in SP. Seen him on the road in his bently too.

    I shouldn't bite, but after 3 posts like that I can't help myself.

    Yea, Flacco is no Johnny U, but who is? He's far from a buffoon, and he's actually the reason we are consistently making the playoffs. I'm not saying he's perfect, but some of what you wrote is rediculous.

    And do you seriously believe that Ozzie is just a mouthpiece? Was Eric DeCosta responsible for drafting the defense that won us a Super Bowl?

    By the way, nice post GOTA. I totally agree. We're very fortunate to have such a great owner.

    Coaching and FO working together.

    Last year was probably one of the greatest displays of coaching this league has seen in several decades.

    20+ players on IR. Several years of coaching a young QB behind a living legend that led up to the culmination of last season. Game plans that worked more often than not. A healthy mix of veterans and young players working the plan to help accumulate wins. Winning on the road through the playoffs.

    I hope Mike McCarthy wins another SB (not against my Ravens, though). He deserves to go down as one of the greats.
    After 5 years of early exits, the journey is finally complete.

    Like I said, they have a great system even if it doesn't include spending.

    They still do have that shot at another SB even with as little as they spend. They have all
    their guys back from last year so think how much better they will be.

    Also, they played lousy like Ravens last week. Panthers almost beat them
    but GB found a way to win just like Lombardi's great teams while the
    Ravens couldn't.

    At this point Ravens have a shot at the Super Bowl but they'll have to beat
    GB. I'd hate to see Rogers picking on these corners and a rookie who will
    be back.

    This is such a short-sighted post.

    The Packers won the first two championships, then went underground for 2 decades (that's 20 years). I don't know what formula that is and I don't wanna know.

    Ozzie will leave before Bisciotti, and when he does, this organization damn well better have a targeted replacement hand picked/blessed by Ozzie...... otherwise, the Ravens could be facing a Raiders/SanFran/Cowboys circa 2000-2010 decade of futility (I know the Raiders were still good in '02, but winning 5 or less games for 7yrs straight gives them extra years of futility).

    The Ravens are a special organization. One of the best run in the league. We have a gem in Baltimore and I hope it never tarnishes.

    SC - dont you think that's why DeCosta has been sticking around?

    Re: Why Ravens Fans Should Love Steve Bisciotti

    Bisciotti is a terrific owner that loves his team and understands that his franchise represents the city of Baltimore (and surrounding burbs). He clearly takes a lot of pride in that. He's not a corporate pawn like a lot of locals have labeled him.

    Having seen Angelos destroy baseball in this town, I'd say we're pretty lucky to have a guy like SB owning the Ravens.

    Short sighted? Guess you don't know that Ravens haven't won the SB in a decade while everyone
    here including myself is praising them.


    GB won the most recent one and have an excellent chance for a repeat with
    all their injured players back from last year and the best young QB in the game.
    Plus they've made the POs while usually beating us along the way. With everyone here
    praising our organization, when was the last time we beat GB and with their lack of
    spending?
