      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      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. I have no doubt in my mind that if Jimmy wasn't hurt we were going to make the playoffs, even with Joe playing the way he did. Depending on FA and the draft, I think there is a good chance we are better next year. Maybe if the FO would have provided adequate weapons and this has been his career then I would actually agree with you. But going through the offensive scheme changes he has and all the different OCs, not to mention getting rid of Boldin after the SP, not correctly finding a replacement for Torrey, Pitta getting hurt, losing the RB that helped make the offense what it was. I have no issue admitting that Joe has no played good in quite some time, but I also put half of that on the FO for not surrounding him with playmakers. Give him Julio Jones and he still won't throw the ball any better !
  2. or another playmaker for Joe Flacco ? Flacco won't throw the ball any better with 10 play makers ! Draft all defense with the first 3 picks.
  3. Not a good fit for the Ravens, he is to slow to cover WRs and to small for a ILB , not great value for 1st rd pick , Ravens could and should do a lot better with the 1st rounder The genius above scolded you by saying "please do your research before making comments". LOL Funny how people act so tough on here. hahaha. The only reason I bicker at one user is because he's hating on others for no reason, kinda like outkast1 just did to you. Its pretty sad lol. And yes outkast 1...because we've never seen players run faster 40 times with their schools timing them as opposed to the combine....lol, what a joke. I agree with you The Beak. I would be bummed if we took Peppers in the first or esp. at 16. Just stop it ! We are all fans of the same team. Your trying to create friction from a simple 1 minute fact search. I'm not a bully for asking to use the search option.We owe to each other to present facts. You shouldn't use the word HATE for asking people to be responsible for what they write. Ok. But my question is why are you talking to him like he's an idiot? Maybe he doesn't have the time to look up college football research, no matter how long it takes. Maybe he just wants to read about the ravens and put his 2 cents in without being "corrected". It's funny cuz you say it's a "simple 1 minute fact search". Cmon, really? It's NOT a fact. Players sizes and numbers are enhanced all the time when their school's in charge of it. You can call it a fact once his numbers come out at the combine. I agree. There's no reason to bicker. I just can't stand it when people on here put others down cuz they think they know what they're talking about. Like all this stuff is fact, and not opinion. I'm done with it though. I guess your comment wasn't as bad as I thought at the time, but it was still completely unnecessary. And stupid cuz they aren't even facts. Just really seemed like you were putting down a random user for no reason at all, just like one of the very unhappy users on here This is a forum for Ravens fans to talk about football and not about you and your feelings. Moderators would have taken my comment down if it was as bad as you say. Just stop it !

  5. We just need play makers because the Ravens can't even sell jerseys anymore ! The Sun reports 17 qbs in the top 50 jersey sales,but not Flacco ?
  6. Not a good fit for the Ravens, he is to slow to cover WRs and to small for a ILB , not great value for 1st rd pick , Ravens could and should do a lot better with the 1st rounder Please do your research before making comments. A simple google search puts Peppers at 6.1 207lbs and his 40 time is around 4.34.Ed Reed 5.11 207lbs and ran his 40 time at 4.57. Ray Lewis 6.1 at 240lbs.and his 40 time was 4.37. A quote from Ray Lewis before he retired,"The game is changing," Lewis said. "The game ain't no more 250, 260-pound fullback and you don't have offenses running the ball 25, 30, 40-plus times. That was my thought process was coming into this year. Playing lighter is much smarter for me." Exactly. Peppers is faster & stronger than both Weddle & Webb. Nobody would ask him to cover Antonio Brown (just like we don't ask Weddle to). But next year, we face Tyler Eifert x 2, Zach Miller, Eric Ebron, Delanie Walker, Jared Cook, Kyle Rudolph, etc. Not to mention that if we make the play-offs we'll probably see Gronk, Kelce, etc. Peppers could easily match-up with all of those guys in a big nickel package. He's really good at stopping the run, so our defense doesn't suffer against the run when going to a nickel package (as most defenses do). You could even line him up next to Mosley (taking Orr's spot) like the Cardinals do with Deone Bucannon (6'1" 211lbs 4.49 40 - 203 tackles in last 2 years). I would bet that he could cover Brown if needed ! The upside of this kid is worthy of a 1st round pick.

  8. Jabrill Peppers at safety, enough said !
  9. Jabrill Peppers is a gamble with super high upside ! The speed to cover the field like Ed Reed and the speed of a young Ray Lewis.
  10. Why burn a 4th rounder when you can wait until the 6th round and pick the next Tom Brady? Next year we will draft in the top 10 with this lame coaching staff.Qb Luke Faulk -)
  11. Draft a back-up Qb for 2 years and let sloppy Joe Flacco fly ! Cousins threw for 9,083 yards, 54 touchdowns and just 23 interceptions over his last two seasons. A 4th round pick, 40 miles away blowing the stats out of average 1st round Joe.SMH
  12. Why are we talking about running backs when this coaching staff won't run the ball when West & Dixon CAN run the ball !
  13. He had given poor regular season performance his entire career !
  14. Yes ! draft a Qb in 2018 because we will pick at 6.
  15. You can see the fire in every Qb that made it to the playoffs.Flacco looks like hes going to a funeral .
