      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 »

My hope for the next couple of years

3 posts in this topic

The Ravens have had different DC's the last couple of years and i think that hurts us a lot. I hope that we can keep Pees here for a few years to get some sense of stability with the defensive play. I am not sure how much it affects the guys as they are pro's but i do think stability on that side of the ball would help.

Do you guys think it hinders our Defense at all ?

Well, the difference between Dean Pees and someone like Chuck Pagano, Rex Ryan, or Marvin Lewis is that Pees was never groomed in Baltimore, nor did he [i]really[/i] work his way up to being the defensive coordinator. Sure, Dean Pees was once the linebackers coach for the Ravens, but he already was a defensive coordinator in New England.

That said, there has been two ways to look at the Baltimore Ravens dominance on the defensive side of the football: 1. It's even more phenomenal and impressive when you factor-in that, in the free agency era, to have a defense dominate, that much, and even have to deal with coaching changes and different schemes, it IS just downright scary.
2. The Baltimore Ravens have been [i]too [/i]good, on defense, that the organization has lost many great geniuses because of it.

Still, I HIGHLY doubt Dean Pees will get a head coaching job. In fact, after seeing the "struggles", this year, practically all teams have shied away from making Pees their head ocach. But, then again, I'm pretty sure no one ever saw Pees as a defensive mastermind, but, rather, a solid guru who can get the job done.

[quote name='nextgen_RavensFan' timestamp='1352983451' post='1219568']I never thought to look at it from your point of view. So unless we find him very inadequate Pees will be here for a while.[/quote]

It depends; if Dean Pees, who has appeared to "right-the-ship" (for the time being) and isn't on the hot-seat, per say, remains in good standing with John Harbaugh, he'll stay for however long. But, if his contract expires, or Pees accepts another job (like what Greg Mattison did), then, obviously, the Ravens will have to get another defensive coordinator.

My prediction? Whenever the time comes for a new D.C., most likely it will be someone from within the system.
