    Yeah I am not advocating to tank the season, we should still try to win, but maybe a more strategic approach that protects the teamís coming 40mm investment when it is clear that he will have no real protection. Reducing contact time by 40 to 50% over the course of the season given the number of sacks in the first game will in theory help LJ in the long run and the team. We could get creative because I think we need to think about his long term relationship with the team and LJ by his nature will want to put this team on his back and that is a bit much to ask in this circumstance leader of the team or not.

    If Trace McSorley is going to be healthy soon, it makes sense to promote him to the active roster if the o-line is going to play as bad as we expect.

    And if Trace isn't going to be ready to play bring in another QB.

    Yikes if true

    A couple of months ago there was talk of Stanley starting the season on PUP. Then after camp starts they say he's okay. That was a story though so they must have known that this was a possibility. I remember we discussed it a lot around draft time. He had another surgery a month before the draft. That was a big story

    Let's say the Ravens did draft an OT in this year's draft is it a greater than 50% chance that Stanley begins the season on the PUP list? I really hope this isn't a case of rushing Stanley back because there was no viable short term alternative.

    I feel like, in the event Stanley wasn't ready to start the year, the team was already comfortable with the notion of swapping Villanueva to LT and swinging Phillips out to RT (I'm not sure I've seen enough agility from Phillips to ever project him as an NFL-quality tackle, but what the hell do I know).

    To me, the combination of not drafting an OT and starting your Plan B - and putting him in the position to, himself, get injured - compounded one risk with another. And now here we are.

    Re: Stanley out multiple weeks.

    Well regardlessÖwhat inspired my thought was the Mariota play on Monday night. It could be an interesting wrinkle that simultaneously takes pressure off the OL and reduces the scrambling of LJ. That said turned around some people may see this as an opportunity for LJ to really earn a paycheck.
