More importantly, he proves we need to find a young NFL caliber left tackle.

I said this in the game thread but I can see us consider bringing him back. The problem is he has serious consistency issues and has an issue with dedication in the offseason. I can see us bringing him back, though.

i'll admit hes been great the last 2 games but that doesn't change my mind we need to get a younger and more balanced LT this offseason. I think the last 2 games have shown THIS is the best 5 we have. At least if we had to find the best 5 sometime, let it be in the playoffs.

The past two games to me solidifies that we are going to jump up in the draft for a LT. We won't resign McKinnie because he breaks down too fast and he's old.

But I think the last two games definitely shows what Flacco can do with protection and that Ozzie will try to jump up for a quality LT prospect.

What this move shows me is KO is a left tackle and oher is a very good right tackle. He dominated von millar minus maybe two plays all game. I'd be happy with McKinnie being resigned as long as we get someone behind him to push him.

If we don't draft Aboushi or Wagner. We'll have too. I'm prepared to let Oher walk in 2014 if he doesn't lift his game.

This.

Let's see how he plays the rest of the playoffs.

I was initially against it, but I would be in favor of a one year deal so we can draft a great prospect at LT to groom. McKinnie would be great insurance if the draft does not turn out.

Agreed. If anything this just shows the other parts of the line are where they should be. We still need a LT. Regular Season motivation has been a problem with McKinnie the past few years. I have no doubt about him bringing it in the post season. But next year he'll be a year older, etc.

I would have said no, but seeing McKinnie play the past two games at LT, shows that we should give him a 1-2 year contract where he plays LT with Oher staying at RT. Plus I also believe re-signing McKinnie allows us to go elsewhere in the Draft in the first or second rounds, and with another year of McKinnie in 2013 could just be a bridge to 2014 when we could jump up in the Draft for Taylor Lewan or Jake Matthews for our Franchise LT.

All this talk about McKinnie's lack of motivation made me think. If the Ravens win the SB, he should definitely not be brought back. He would probably take the term, "SB hangover" to an all new level. lol.

Completely agree. If you would've asked me before the playoffs, it would've been a definite no. Now, after these last 2 weeks, its changed for me. Plus not to mention, McKinnie won't be expensive.

I think we would be doing ourselves a disservice if neglect the LT position (especially since it looks like Oher is not the answer). We can't ride McKinnie and Birk until the wheels fall off. Because if we do, its going to be tough keeping Joe upright for a while.

He sure helped to keep the pressure off of Flacco!

Honestly, I am surprised that you (Poe) got second. After the draft I thought your team was doomed for failure.

You get used to it. Even posts that don't violate the rules aren't safe.

I'm pretty sure this team is happy with Grodkowski starting at center. They seem really high on him.

We won't be able to extend Mckinnie. Some team will end up overpaying for his services which is unfortunate because I'd like to have him back.
