    The season Sam Adams had at DT in 2000 was one of the best I have ever seen a player have. Big Sam didn't just collapse the pocket, he eradicated it.

    Re: All-time Ravens "dream team"

    I think the ones above are all pretty safe.

    I'll ask people to vote for the following:

    Starting CB: Lardarius Webb 2011 (59 tackles, 15 ast, 5 INT, 81 yards, 1TD, 0 passing TDs allowed, 10 AV) vs. Duane Starks, 2000 ( 45 tackles, 4 ast, 6INT, 125 INT yards, 11 AV)

    Starting TE: Todd Heap, 2002: 68-836-12.3-6 (plus 38 rushing yards)
    Todd Heap, 2005, 75-855-11.4-7
    Shannon Sharpe, 2000, 67-810-12.1-5

    3rd string RB: Willis McGahee (15 starts), 2007, 294 carries, 1207 yards, 4.1YPC, 7TD 24 catches, 173 yards
    Priest Holmes (13 starts), 1998, 233 carries, 1008 yards, 4.3 YPC, 7TD 43 catches, 260 yards

    Yea, I'm thinking Adams 2000 and Ngata 2010 should be our two starting interior DLinemen. Thoughts?

    Re: All-time Ravens "dream team"

    You have to have Siragusa 2000 in the rotation.
    THe man didn't look good, but his play defied the way he looked.
    He moved like a much smaller player and he had that swagger and character that added to the 2000 defense.
    No one ran between the tackles with Adams and him, nobody.
    Less than a thousand yards rushing for opposing offenses, for the season. First defense to do that during a 16 game season.

    Sharper 2000 would be my pick for the linebacker next to Ray in a 3-4.
    Bouleware 2000 and Suggs 2011 as the starting outside backers in a 3-4.

    As great as Starks was in 2000, Webb might be right there, too.

    I also will throw a shout out for Cunningham 2001 as a backup QB.
    He came off the bench and went 2-0 while GrBac was out.
    One of those wins was against the Steelers, I believe it was 13-10.
    No Jamal, no GrBac, and Priest Holmes was gone.

    Samari Rolles 2006 season i would think should be at least good enough for 4th or 5th db if not debatable with starks 2000.

    Re: All-time Ravens "dream team"

    The offensive line that blocked for Vinny's pro bowl year in 1996 when he passed for over 4000 yards was very good.

    Ogden 2000, of course, would be LT,
    But I would have Wally Williams 1996 at LG,
    Steve Everitt 1996 at center,
    Blackshear 1996 at RG,
    and Zeus 1996 at RT.

    With Grubbs 2011 and Yanda 2011 as backups.

    Shannon Sharpe 2000 as TE.
    Boldin 2010 in the slot.
    Vonta Leach 2011 at FB.

    Marshall Yanda deserves the starting right guard spot IMO. Played through a very painfull injury in the play offs, and has been paving the way for Rice for the past 3 years. Ben Grubbs is debatable, and I think Matt Birk in 2010 or Jeff Mitchell deserve the starting center spot in 2000.

    Odgen (2000)-Ben Grubbs (2010)-Jeff Mitchell (2000)-Marshall Yanda (2011)-Zeus(1996)

    Jarred Gaither (2008), and Matt Birk (2010) as reserves.

    Don't forget Vonta Leach (2011) as the starting full back without question .

    Re: All-time Ravens "dream team"

    Yeah I think I'd go with Vinnie's 96 year over Flacco, hard to argue with 4000+ yards and 33 TD,s. Match that up with J.Lewis and R.Rice in the backfield. Boldin, MJ and Mason, along with Shannon and Heap as the TE's.

    Re: All-time Ravens "dream team"

    For some reason I forgot Jason Brown of 2008. He led the center of that line that ran over everyone, including the Steelers. IF you recall, the Ravens ran straight down the Steelers throats in the AFC title game of 2008, scoring those two late rushing TDs. And with the score 16-14, along came Darren Stone...I can't talk about it anymore!!!

    Anyway, I might go with Jason Brown 2008 as the starter.
    After all, we are talking about the best one season performances.

    What we should be going for is an offensive line that can, to a man, drive everyone down the field in the rushing game, and also wall off any pass rush in the passing game.

    So, I will retry an Oline and say,
    Ogden 2000 LT,
    Wally Williams 1996 LG,
    Jason Brown 2008 C,
    Yanda 2011 RG,
    Zeus 1996 RT.

    I would go:

    1. CMAC '03 or '06
    2. Starks '00
    3. Webb '11
    4. Rolle '06

    CMAC in his prime was as good as any CB we have seen in the last 15 years.

    Starks was the #1 CB on the greatest defense of all time. He led the team in ints that year. Once the playoffs came around he was as shut down as it gets. 2 ints in the afccg against oakland and his int/td in the SB essentially sealed the win for the ravens.

    Webb's 2011 season was almost as good but falls short simply on the merits of starks return td in the SB, imo.

    Rolle would have to be the dime back on this alltime ravens squad.
