    We need some more of this on our defense. IF you come across the middle, you have to pay a toll.

    I take This quote differently. Buck Allen was a very valuable, versatile piece of a roster that fills a lot of cracks. Heís about the opposite of expendable. The flashy star seeking players usually have far less versatility. Kenneth Dixon is an example of a player on a similar level to Buck Allen but with more star/starting potential, but dramatically less versatility. A roster needs half a dozen players like Buck Allen, and the roster cutdown numbers game doesnít work well at all without them.

    Mac, I have to disagree. Chuck Clark in his two years as a Raven has 34 tackles (28 solo), 1 INT, and 3 PDs. While most of those have come on Special Teams, I think he has talent to get onto the field in the "D" too. I'm not for outright cutting Deshon Elliott, but he'd have to show something pretty good before I'd send C.C. packing... Bc

    That play on tori Hunter Jr is a flag, fine and possible suspension in the nfl

    On the other hand, Levine does a number of things well on the field and might allow another position to be roster-squeezed. In a passing league, it's possible that the Ravens could go with fewer LBs and more DBs.

    I'm a Deshon Elliot fan. However, my hazy memory is:
    One year college starter
    4.6 40 (?)
    Not much really matters, and the rest doesn't matter at all.

    I think we have room for 5 safeties given their role on ST, dime packages, & what Filmstudy calls the Big Nickel packages.

    If Elliott is healthy & plays well enough to earn it this summer, then I'd say we'd have room.

    Not to mention Levine is aging & if you want to move on from TJ (which I doubt) then Clark & Elliott are a nice pair left in the chamber.

    Elliot will be a major starter/contributor within 2. He's a monster coming up to lay the smack down. High ceiling. He was a steal in the draft. You'll see, you all will seee........

    Glad to be back

    Above average speed for a safety but not overly rangy. Heís not the best cover safety but heís not terrible at it either. Iím a Texas fan, and you could easily tell he was the best player on the field most games. The best comparison I can come up with is Dashon Goldson when he was one of the best safeties in the game. He reminds me a little of HaHa Clinton-dix too but heís more violent.

    I understand BC and itís tough to make a case for him because he was injured his first year and didnít show much outside of the HOF game. At this point all I can say is just wait and see. This guy has some serious talent that we stole in the 5th round. 2 time first team all American at Texas and the best player on their Defense.
