      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. Am I the only one who thinks its funny that these mayors of teams who relocate always come out and say they are disappointed with the move. That they are disappointed in the NFL, when in fact they only say that to make themselves look good and the NFL look bad. How many years did they have to secure new stadium deals in the past? Yet they always wait for the last minute to try to do something. That'a part of why teams leave in the first place, no support from said city.
  2. I think it's time the NFL to open expansion back up, yeah figuring out conferences, divisions and playoff format with new franchises will be a giant hurdle but expansion to new cities is better than cities losing teams. Vegas and LA could have had expansion teams, not taking teams from their old cities.
  3. So because he renovated the stadium he voted no? Or is he against the move using taxpayer money to build a stadium?
  4. I wonder why the Dolphins voted against it, be interested in finding out why
  5. Michael Fabino posted this on his Twitter: Report: Marshawn Lynch arrested in Oakland on suspicion of DUI. https://twitter.com/Michael_Fabiano Ok it did happen. Apparently Lynch was arrested Saturday Night. http://www.mercurynews.com/california/ci_21089868/nfl-star-oakland-tech-grad-marshawn-lynch-arrested
  6. So a Bears CB and a Packers CB walk into a bar. Bears CB Deiondre Hall and Packers CB Makinton Dorleant were arrested on Saturday Night for interference. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/03/26/bears-packers-cornerbacks-both-arrested-in-iowa/ So Roger Goodell is now arresting players for committing interference? He's lost it.
  7. Bills GM Doug Whaley may be on the way out. Since they hired Scott McDermott as HC, they haven't gotten along. The decision to keep Tyrod was McDermott's not Whaley is just one example. http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/nfl/356285/just-matter-of-time-until-bills-axe-whaley?ls=roto:BUF:topheadlines
  8. Jets have signed one of their own to a new contract. Guard Brian Winters who was a pending Free Agent, signed a 4 year extension worth $8M a year. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/01/16/jets-sign-brian-winters-to-four-year-extension/
  9. Webb says "double digit" teams have told him that he's a first round pick. So be interesting to see where he ends up in the real draft. Think he could end up like Derek Carr and be a steal for someone in the second round.
  10. Even I usually am a lot more excited playing this game but this year. I don't know if its because of limited activity or what but I feel the game is almost at the point of run its course. Or maybe the board closing has something to do with it, it doesn't have that feel to it like it has in the past. I hope on the new board we can revive this game next year and make it what it has been in years prior.
  11. Trade talks between Broncos and Browns could see Joe Thomas heading to Denver. http://broncoswire.usatoday.com/2017/03/20/joe-thomas-trade-agent-denver-broncos/
  12. Not saying I wouldn't want it to happen if we can pull off a second or third round pick for him. He won't net us a high round comp pick so if we can trade him for higher than the compensatory pick we would have got, then awesome job Ozzie.
  13. LombardI also said the Seahawks were open to trading Richard Sherman. I doubt his credibility as he's never broken any big news before.
  14. Since the league annual meeting is coming up, some details have been released about proposed changes and officials no longer will determine the outcome of a challenge. Won't list everything here but just click the PFT link to see all what is being suggested for the upcoming season. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/03/23/nfl-to-consider-15-new-rules-6-new-bylaws-3-new-resolutions/ Now for the fun part... Roger Goodell has said that Dean Blandino, yes his right hand man will have FINAL SAY on replay reviews. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/03/23/roger-goodell-dean-blandino-will-have-final-say-on-replay-reviews/
  15. Mark Sanchez has sank so low that he is now backing up.... Mike Glennon. Sanchez officially is a Chicago Bear. http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/nfl/356243/mark-sanchez-taking-his-talents-to-chicago?ls=roto:CHI:topheadlines
  16. Since the start of the season, the NFL has run into a major issue. Their TV Ratings are declining when it comes to prime-time games. Each week, whether it's TNF, SNF or MNF the ratings have seen a decline from the 2015 games in those weeks. The Colts/Texans on SNF saw a massive 38 percent drop from the 2015 Week 6 SNF game of the Patriots and Colts. Arizona's blowout win over the Jets saw a 34 percent drop from the 2015 Giants/Eagles Week 6 MNF game. Even more, it represented a 27 percent decline from the 2014 Week 6 MNF game between the Rams and 49ers. Is the NFL Bubble about to burst? Was Mark Cuban right about the NFL imploding and is this the start of said imploding? What is it that the NFL can do to turn things around or will ratings continue to decline and potentially drop in the playoffs and carry over to the Super Bowl where even the big game's ratings is down? Once I gather info, I'll post the full breakdown ratings comparison soon.
  17. So Jon Toth started 47 consecutive games you say...........
  18. With the 9th Pick in the 4th Round, the Baltimore Ravens select..... Jon Toth C Kentucky
  19. How am I supposed to take him if you already drafted... oh you mean in real life.
  20. I figured OL would be the pick in the first after Zuttah was traded but trading down to take Lamp unless we were confident in his skills to take him at 16. Robinson wouldn't be bad but much rather wait on a better OT class to find our book end to Stanley. Just find a veteran or trade for one that can man down the RT spot until a better class comes along. Like the approach of taking the Dallas route but wait for a better class which I think 2018 is.
  21. Za'Darius Smith is available for a late round pick if anyone is interested.
  22. My pick is in, Titans are now on the clock.
  23. With the 35th Pick in the third round, the Baltimore Ravens Select DeMarcus Walker OLB Florida State
  24. Walter Football's Charlie Campbell is now reporting that we are high on Cam Robinson and have him rated as the number one OT in the draft.
  25. Strange that Zach Brown is still available but we haven't shown any interest in him.
