    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.

    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.

    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.
