    Bad Timing, Good Guy



    Todd Heap had a solid career in Baltimore, but while he was a warrior (taking many hits over the middle), his timing couldn't have been worse. He was drafted in the 1st round the year AFTER the Ravens won Super Bowl XXXV. He was released by the Ravens two years BEFORE we won Super Bowl XLVII. IMO he was a player worthy of a ring. What say you ? ... Bc

    Nope.

    Ring's are for players, coaches, team employees who led the team to the SB win that particular season.

    Yes, bad timing. But he had zero to do with our Super Bowl run.

    His reward will be the RoH and rightfully so.

    I am huge Todd Heap fan, but a SB ring is for people who were part of the team and organization that particular year.

    No. It's been two years. If anything the appropiate discussion would be whether he's worthy of being inducted in the ravens hall of fame.

    Well. If that's the case, perhaps we could consider giving Kyle Boller a ring too?

    The intentions are good but I don't see how players who were on the team in 2012 would ever go for that.

    He's the reason Flacco was drafted, so ...

    You're right, but my verbiage stinks. I did not mean the Ravens should give him a Super Bowl ring...I meant that he was unlucky to not have been on a championship team during his years in Baltimore.

    No way would Heap even accept a ring, if it was offered.

    If Heap was still here, I wonder how Pitta (and to a lesser extent, Dickson) would have progressed, or if we would even have drafted them. Everything happens for a reason. Heap's not being here enabled the emergence of Pitta, Joe's best friend and favorite target.

    and Kelly Gregg and Jarett Johnson. I was really hoping we could get a ring for them. Ah well, let's just appreciate the ones who did (REEEEED)

    Maybe we give rings to the 49ers for "beating themselves".
