    Re: According to McKinnie...



    Again, people that saw him this offseason all have said that he looked slimmer at various points.

    Maybe he didn't lose 50 pounds at the rate some of you wanted, but the guy was in the process of losing weight.

    Re: According to McKinnie...

    If McKinnie gets himself into shape and is ready to go for the season, does anyone think that the Ravens will still make him pay that fine? I doubt they will.

    He had his Dr call out of work for him. Harbs was obviously pissed about that. Maybe he lost his weight, maybe he is ready to roll. But its hard to trust a man that can't make the phone call himself. We all want him in shape for the sake of the team, but we all also want him to be motivated and ready to roll come September.

    Some of you are arguing a point that I never, ever made.

    I am ONLY talking about his weight.

    NOT whether he had a good excuse to go AWOL last week. I am not debating that he is an idiot and was completely unprofessional with the way he handled the AWOL situation. I TOTALLY AGREE with that.

    My only point was for the people who tried to make it out as if he let himself go this offseason and/or didn't lose any weight and tried to use that as his excuse.

    I think the real answer is he's an idiot and he's used to teams/people taking his bullshit. NOT that he was a fat piece of shit who sat on his couch and ate burrito's all day.

    I would. It's not like he has anymore money coming to him. Why should the Ravens go out of their way to keep McKinnie happy? Let him earn his paycheck

    Re: According to McKinnie...

    A little satanic advocacy here:

    Would any of the negative chatter here have been any different if McKinnie had called in himself with a story about how he hurt his back? Doubtful. Most of the same folks who ordered the pitchers of Haterade would've been insinuating (or flat out claiming) he was lying so he could stay away for a few more days.

    It is at least possible that McKinnie wanted the doc to call the team in order to prevent that sort of reaction ("I'm his doctor & I'm treating him for a back problem" would seem to carry a bit more credibility than "Coach, I hurt my back").

    The only problem I have with having the doc call is its lateness. I haven't reviewed the timeline but it's at least possible that there is a good (or at least plausible) reason the doc couldn't make the call until when he did, or that McKinnie didn't impress upon him the need to do it ASAP.

    On another note, should we at least start to become concerned with Birk? He has yet to practice, and according to Harbaugh, it's back spasms.

    I am, based on last year, how the knee surgery was last minute. Hopefully it is nothing, holding a vet out a day or two I can roll with, as it gets longer I get concerned there is a structural component also at work. Fortunately Birk can get ready quick, unfortunately his older body doesn't heal as fast anymore.
    To understand paranoid people better, follow them around.

    FWIW, McKinnie looked noticeably smaller in the camp video the Ravens put up today.
