      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 »

Although it's great that Caldwell had such a nice status with Manning, we all know Joe is not Peyton. Will Flacco improve, of course he will. Is he ever going to reach Peyton's status, not in a million years. Let's just win the Super Bowl and everyone goes home happy.

I will just be excited to not know what play is coming before we snap the ball... I have a good feeling about this though, and after reading this from Peyton it just got that much better. ={D>

Ya, Joe has had a whole stable of famous QB coaches since he's been here.
The first couple years, we saw improvement in his game. That all stopped last year.
If someone has the talent, I don;t think it would take 5 years of expert coaching to get a 1st round pick to be better. I don;t hold out a lot of hope that Joe is going to get much better but having said that, I don;t believe we even NEED a Brady or Manning back there if we shore up some issues we are having on our D and O line.

I just went back and watched the game again and I really didn't notice Oher or Birk losing too many battles. I assumed a few on here was paying more attention to them than I was. Evidently not. I just didn't see either of them losing their one on ones.
I did see #72 Osemele get his butt handed to him on a regular basis though.

We knew at the beginning of the season that our O line would be a work in progress so this shouldn't be too big a surprise. I just don't think it's time to call for anyone elses head just yet but then again, ask me again after the Denver game! :-)
GO RAVENS!!!!

If you're going to run the no huddle, run the friggin no huddle. Does our no huddle look like New England's? Denver's ? No. Does it even look like Atlanta's? No. The truth is, whether its becaus Flacco's not smart enough or Cam was a control freak Flacco I not running the entire offense at the line the way Matt Ryan is. They came out the same year. He wants big $$-have him earn it. He wants an up tempo offense, let him run it for real. We need to see who this guy is, and we need to see it now. It's what he did in college anyway.

I have known Mr. Caldwell since Wake Forest. I admire him for taking time to reach out to the one's that are somewhat forgotten. He is a great man of integrity. I Pray that God continue to Bless him with great health and strength. He leadership off the field is just as important as what he achieves on the field. He definitely has my support. Coach keep up the good work. Keep doing the things that got you there in the beginning. Stay focused. Google prospect Dekota Marshall http://www.nfldrafts...=2011&genpos=CB

I greatly appreciate Peyton stepping up to make these comments about Caldwell. It helps put my mind at ease. I think though that Peyton and Flacco have different learning styles and definitely are different talent-wise. When Peyton is on the sidelines he always is pouring over photos, reading stuff, etc. I want to see more of that from Joe.

I dont think anyone, even the late Ray Charles would confuse those two but if Jim can make Flacco more efficient with the ball and with the offense, that may be all we need. To be honest, If we did have manning, we would probably be 12-1 right now(at worse) but hopefully Jim can give Joe enough coaching to make him a potential SB QB. If we could get there riding on Dilfer, Flacco should be able to as well.

Classic Peyton. More interesting than what he actually said is what he didn't say. He didn't say that Caldwell could not call plays, but he did admit that he could not endorse him as a play caller. "You're talking to the wrong guy there." Kind of a hard statement for a quarterback to make.

I think Caldwell will do fine, and I can't wait until Sunday.

It took Manning 8 years to win a Super Bowl.

It took Elway 13- THIRTEEN! - with some really crappy seasons in between, including the most lopsided loss in SB history. Until Shanahan came in to turn things around, he sucked.

Coaching does make a huge difference, and those of you expecting Joe to peak in his 5th season, especially with Cam calling plays NOBODY had confidence in, are delusional.
