    Re: All-time Ravens "dream team"



    Okay, so let's vote for the starting and backup QBs,

    The nominees are:

    Vinny Testaverde (1996): 4-12 record, 4177 passing yards, 59.2 completion %, 33TD-19INT, 88.7 passer rating
    Joe Flacco (2010): 12-4 record, 3622 passing yards, 62.6 completion %, 25 TD-10 INT, 93.6 passer rating
    Steve McNair (2006):13-3 record, 3050 passing yards, 63.0 completion %, 16TD-12INT, 82.5 passer rating.


    One first place vote equals 2 points, 2nd place vote equals one point. First QB to collect 25 points is our starter. Next to collect 20 points is our backup.

    Also, we will narrow down the roster by voting for Heap 2005 vs. Sharpe 2000

    Webb 2011 vs. Starks 2000

    Holmes 1998 vs. McGahee 2007

    Vote for each of those three categories. First to collect ten votes wins.

    Our starting defense is all but set. Webb vs. Starks is currently up for vote for the #2 CB slot.

    For the OLB spot, I present the following candidates:

    Jamie Sharper, 2000 (AV 11, 59 tackles, 13 assists, 1 INT, 5 FF, 2FR, 0 sacks)
    Jamie Sharper, 2001 (AV 10, 77 tackles, 30 assists, 1FR, 1TD, 6 sacks)
    Jarrett Johnson, 2009 (AV 9, 36 tackles, 14 assists, 6 sacks, 2 INT, 1 FF)
    Adalius Thomas, 2006 (AV 18, 64 tackles, 19 assists, 11 sacks, 1 int, 1 FR, 1 TD)
    Adalius Thomas, 2005 (AV 11, 71 tackles, 15 assists, 9 sacks, 2 INT, 1 INT TD, 4 forced fumbles, 4 fumble rec. 2 Fumble recovery touchdowns)

    I vote Adalius Thomas 2006 over Adalius Thomas 05 and Sharper 01.

    Sharper 00 or 01 should make it as a reserve. Johnson 09 might make it too. You could substitute Sharper and JJ for Thomas and Boulware on obvious running downs.

    I'm not sure there is an O-line in history that could block McCrary 98, Suggs 11, Thomas 06, and Boulware 01

    Re: All-time Ravens "dream team"

    I'll go Flacco and McNair. I know Vinny's numbers blow them away but I like not having to constantly worry about my QB throwing picks and let's face it, with that O-line and those running backs play action would be available whenever you want it.

    I'll go Sharpe with a very slight nod over Heap for two reasons. Number one - Sharpe's intangibles meant so much to the 2000 team and number 2 - he was a great blocking TE as well. Heap in the #2 TE spot and Green #3.

    Starks over Webb. If we could base this on potential and not one season I would have gone Webb.

    McGahee over Holmes. If we could base this on later performance (when he was with the Chiefs) I definitely would have picked Holmes.

    I like Vonta Leach too.

    But don't forget that we had Sam Gash and Lorenzo Neal at one time, too. I think both, but epsecially Neal, compare well to Leach as devastating blockers.

    Or are we only counting their years as Ravens? I would love to have seen Neal block for Jamal Lewis.

    And dont forget Alan Ricard, who paved the way for Jamal's 2000 yards in '03.
