I really do feel for all the coaches that get fired every year. I know this much - every coach puts in an incredible amount of time and preparation and sacrifice so much for this game... more importantly their families sacrifice just as much in that their husbands, fathers, etc. are never home much. The insecurity of the NFL must be really taxing on all of them. But, I am glad the Ravens have so much stability and that must be a factor when we recruit! Go Ravens!

Owners are shuffling, arm-fighting, and mouth spitting, trying to get through DeCosta's door; unfortunately, the door is forever shut and sealed with high-tech concrete wall with thermal lance installed.....

AND SO IT STARTS AGAIN!!!
I hate this time of year when it comes to this stuff.
We lose so many good coaches every year.
I am glad they set Decosta up for life here. One less coach to worry about losing.

A number of GM's were shown the door today and its a good thing we have a GM in waiting. As much as we like to think " The Wizard of OZ" can do no wrong, just like players, there needs to be competition for positions.

Thanks Eric. For that fateful day that Ozzie retires I hope that we still have you around to take over the reigns.

Happy New Years everyone, stay safe.

To Eric,
This speaks volumes of how well this organization is being run. When a person in your position shows that he wants to stay in Baltimore, it means a lot to us fans. I wish you all the best and want you to know how much I appreciate all that you have done to improve this team.

Go Ravens and let's win some championships!!!!

Another example of how we are trying to emulate the Steelers long-term approach to success.

Other teams see how the Ravens run things and want what we have because we win here and keep pushing though all the headaches and stick together as a organization.I'm glad we have the staff we have.Class A ORGANIZATION!

Yes, it is nice that Eric will be here when Oz leaves. Personally, I love post-season football... especially when the Ravens are playing.

Ozzie Haters:

You folks just make me laugh. It's not just about having an outstanding draft record (which is comprised from a staff effort, headed by Ozzie), but it's about key FA signings, key trades, and key Undrafted FA signings. It's about assembling the right coaches, timely extensions, and timely releases. Success!...Success!...Success!

He has headed the fielding of a record-breaking Super Bowl team, and a continuous presence in the post-season. He has led the way to surpassing our fiercest rival, and a domination of the division. He has GM'd this organization from perennial joke to elite-of-elite in class and talent. Even with this year's problems there is no team in the playoffs that really wants to face us.

The track record speaks for itself, no matter how much you try to rewrite the facts. Yet, you still [complain] and whine! You people really need to stop it! Really!!!

I'm glad that we made sure last year that DeCosta would stay where he belongs. Good solid move on our part and it will pay dividends for years to come.
