      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 »

Goodluck in Philly, Dennis. You're going to need it.

Dixon is probably better than Vick at this point in time and Kelly knows him , and likes him. He could very well end up with at least a temporary starting gig in Philly. Just hope he still has his legs because with that O line, he'll need them. I do believe that Foles is their future though. At least if they have any sense.

Good luck to him. I'm glad he could come in here and play a version on the pistol/option offense for us. I'm sure he's one of the unsung heroes of this season.

Good luck to Dixon ... I bet he was invaluable on the practice squad to get our guys ready for RGIII and CK. Hope he does well.

A little off-topic ... do they even have Editors or at least Proof Readers at the Sun anymore? One, it's Nick Foles and not Nick Folk (isn't he a kicker on the Jets?). And then, "Comfortable with Tyrod Taylor as their primarily backup to Joe Flacco ..." Primarily backup?

At some point Dixon will be the starter of the Eagles. I can see it now... Foles to KC in a trade, Vick gets hurt in the pre-season and Dixon becomes the week 1 starter for the Eagles.

Same. I wanted Dixon as back-up & to trade Tyrod. Dixon has starting experience & IMO is a better pistol-option QB for preparation for these new breeds. Regardless, I think Tyrod will be good. I just liked Dixon better TBH.

I think Dixon will also start. He has a really good chance and that's all he can hope to have. Eagles should trade Foles. He doesn't fit their system at all.
