I hope Flacco is a team player. i just hope he is not the type of player that will leave the team in debt to build around him to go at another Superbowl. you deserve to get pay Flacco, just dont take the team for every cent.

Lets just get Flacco's deal done that is gonna be fair to both sides. That way we don't have to play the "what if" game.

None of this is new to us. Anyone who watched our press conference know what the variables are. Ozzie's stated that priority 1 is getting a fair deal with Flacco. If that "fair deal" isn't attainable before the deadline, then so be it - they are not going to sign a deal they believe is bad for the team just to get in before the deadline.

If we fail to reach a deal, Ozzie's comments seemed to suggest that he felt if we used the tag non-exclusive tag, someone would come get him. Therefore, I have to think that we'll use the exclusive tag and suffer the consequences as it relates to the rest of the roster. I think the specter of the Browns or some other cap rich/QB poor team swooping in is almost zero.

So - this really comes down to whether the notion of "fair" for both sides of this negotiation is close or not. If it is close, I am hoping that Joe steps in and says ... "good enough, let's get this done so the team can go about its business of securing the players that surround me".

OMG if the Browns acquired both Wallace and Flac that would be bad news! We definitely need Flac more than ever!

The answer is NO !
Flacco will get he's deal.
Boldin does not need anything, he still has a year on his contract, He's not going anywhere.

The only person drooling at the prospect of $35 million from Cleveland is Joe Linta. Flacco has to realize he's better off with a contender, which the Ravens are. He said himself he wanted to be a Raven for life.

Anyone who thinks Flacco is going somewhere else is a complete idiot. Ossie doesn't make stupid moves like that.

We can't afford to lose our defense. We need Joe on offense to win. Joe needs a solid defense behind him to win. The balance is essential to win the championship.

If I was Joe I would ask how much money will it take to keep the key players andupgrade a few positions. Then sign and repeat.

back loaded contract in years 3-5 will help this team because the salary cap is increasing and suggs and ngata will either retire or be released in another 3 years which will free up a ton of $$. a back loaded contract will also allow us to retain kruger and ellerbe

Flacco isnt going anywhere, if the FO offered him a Top 5 contract last year you better believe they're offering more now. Plus Flacco seems like a guy who is happy where he is, and would probably take less to be with a winner in B more rather than a loser in Cleveland.

If Flacco leaves I will be devestated. I don't see it happening, but there's always that possibility.

Wish and hope all you want Peter King, Flacco wants to be in Baltimore, Baltimore wants Flacco, he is not going anywhere.

People are drawn to the Ravens because they see "down to earth" guys facing struggles that we all can relate to. They meet these challanges head on time after time, even if they fall short, they never quit. In a crazy world facing daunting obsticles, this example inspires us. It helps us teach such lessons to our children who can use this to succeed. Is the Ravens the new "America's team"? No, They are the "Peoples Champions".

Thank you for being who you are, never change.

GO RAVENS!

Joe is never leaving Baltimore even if we pay him $20 million a year from here on out! We could have signed him before the season began and saved a million or two. I say that we should do the deal sooner rather than wait!
