      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

  1. make PI reviewable.
  2. Von Miller is just 1 player on 1 team that is not even in our division. Drafting a RT in round 1 or 2 just to consider him is crazy tbh. Not to mention with Stanley being pretty darn good , we can easily give the RT all the help he needs to slow any pass rusher from that side down.
  3. if we do i hope its to the first pick lol. might as well do it with a bang
  4. Jealous about what?
  5. we where not in a play off spot when flacco got injured in 2015 nor was he playing good at the time. the ravens where 3-7 before he got put on IR.
  6. based on the fact that we have spend almost 50% of our cap on offense and have spend our high picks in the last 2 drafts mostly on offense , i come to have high expectations for that unit. there are only 11 teams who are spending more on offense so an offense barely cracking the top 20 is just not going to cut it. the QB is the most important player on offense and even on the team. if he plays bad the offense has no chance so safe to say he is that important to what how that unit will play. when you then also consider that flacco has the 2nd highest cap hit in the entire NFL then you can say a lot is expected from him. he is getting paid to carry this team so he should. there are only 3 teams spending less on defense so im actually tempering my expectations for them. pretty logical so far imo. then when you consider the amount of picks we have , how many of them become immediate contributors on offense/defense and the amount of vets we bring that make a significant impact at this point , its safe to say that you can make a pretty good guess at the shape of our roster already. majority of the 53 man squad is already on the team. barring injuries i think at least 8 out of 11 starters on defense are set in stone with at least 1 guy we know will be the 3rd corner. losing any of them will lead to a downgrade and thus will put more pressure on flacco and the offense. maybe you are totally clueless on who will be on the team but i already have a pretty good idea on who will be on it or at least has a very high chance to make it. considering the make up of this team and the importance of the QB position and the often used its a passing league , id dare to say to QB play will play a huge role in if we are play off bound or not. the only way we make the play offs with flacco playing badall season is if we get a 2000 yard caliber RB (committee) and the defense playing like the 2000 unit for 16 games for the entire game and not just 3 quarters lol
  7. then what is the point of disagreeing with me when i say he needs to play better? just replies for the sake of defending flacco even though you agree?
  8. so he played good in your eyes last season? no need to improve at all ? PS: that is some utter disrespect for yanda tbh and stanley played pretty darn good as well. flacco vs 11 really?
  9. so when my point is that flacco needs to play better for us to make the play offs its ignorant , yet you yourself say he needs to play better. interesting. you do know that if he played better last season we would have made the play offs regardless of jimmy going down right? offense was the biggest issue last season and im pretty sure jimmy does not play offense.... ..
  10. i did not randomly posted what you quoted. it was a reply to a question the person i quoted asked. if flacco keeps playing as bad as he has been doing then i dont see how we make the play offs. do you think the ravens are a playoff team if flacco plays like he did in 2015 and 2016?
  11. steelers fans are the ones who think flacco is doing just fine the way he played the last 2 seasons or heck last 3 out 4 seasons since winning the SB.
  12. not really. 3 out of the last 4 years we missed the play offs and flacco was bad all 3 of those seasons. so if he keeps playing the same then the odds are we will miss the play offs again. its ignorant to think that if he keeps playing this bad that we are a playoff team. unless you think that ozzie will fill all the holes with topnotch talent and pees will have this defense play like a top 5 unit for all 16 games from start to finish.... our ticket to the play offs are in his hand and he is getting paid to carry this team. if he does not play better im not confident at all that we will be play off bound. sure that is why i want flacco to play better rather then make excuses and act like he is playing like a top tier QB.......
  13. prepare to miss the play offs again.
  14. dont forget that those excuses are only exclusive to him as well. god forbid you use them for others QBs or even other ravens players lol.
  15. quite curious if you also know what the QBs job is. interesting how you always manage to list everyone else job and what they are supposed to do except the highest paid position in the NFL.....
  16. barry sanders? arguably the best RB ever barry sanders?
  17. so dude is an all pro already without even taking a snap in the NFL yet?
  18. even if you combine the defense and special teams , the offense still has over 23 mil off the cap tied into them.. offense 83 mil defense 53 mil ST 8.4 mil. maybe the offense just needs to start pulling their weight rather then needing huge investments again... also i dont get using the pats as an example. the way brady has been playing it makes sense to give him all he needs. you know he is going to come out and play like MVP for majority of the games from week 1 all the way to the SB. with flacco you dont know what you get on a weekly basis in the regular season but you do know that he steps up his game in the play offs. makes more sense to build a team that can carry him to the play offs and he then takes over rather then build a team that relies on him to get them to the play offs.
  19. The games wright was playing he wasn't making any plays either. Not much difference then jimmy not playing and thus not making any plays. ill go on record and say that jimmy is a far better player then wright even when jimmy isn't playing and wright is lol carr has been the better player though and i dont think its only due to his health.
  20. unless the trade comes with him agreeing to an extension at a reasonable price , i would not give up a 3rd rounder. not worth risking losing him after the season in a bidding war.
  21. a guy on the field has the opportunity to make more plays. does not mean he will. just take wright and jimmy last season. wright played 707 snaps (673 defense 34 ST) while jimmy only played 582 snaps( all defense) you really wanna argue that its a FACT that wright made more plays then jimmy?
  22. in 5 seasons claiborne has 4 picks. in 5 seasons with the cowboys carr has 7 picks. seems to me carr made more plays based on your idea of what a playmaker should be....
  23. not at all. the offense still has about 30 mil more tied up into them. we actually have at this point the 4th cheapest defense in the NFL lol
