“That’s awesome. It’s like a dream team in the making. I can’t wait until we all get together,” Jones told Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.

Why do you have to go and say anything even remotely like "dream team"? I knew the minute I heard that quote there would be an article written about it by every major website. Sure enough PFT and NFL.com have written articles about it already.

Hopefully this story just blows over. If anything good was to come from us losing all these players it was that we would be underdogs again heading into next season. I like being the underdog.

Just the media looking for a story. No big deal. Arthur already corrected himself on Twitter.

WHO CARES.

Holy crap. When Vince Young said it, guess what it was like playing on a dream team.

Don't make a big stink, because it isn't. It's a passing fart in the wind.

Oh Art you should know that is a dirty word. All that word is is an open target for criticism though. That's all. Harbs is gonna have to reinforce that we haven't won anything yet and we have a lot of hard work to do.

The good thing about this is that the media for whatever reason does NOT LIKE us. Lol

This story won't blow up to be as big as the Philly story

If the media chooses to make it a story it will be a story all year especially if we sign another cheap veteran or two like Michael Huff or Carlos Dansby.

The media this time of year are like vultures looking for anything to pick at. It's why I've learned to understand why coaches like Belichick and Harbaugh give us "coach speak". The media will make a story out of anything they can.

Well, we DID just win the SB. We DID just grab the top FA to go opposite Suggs. We DO have Webb coming back. And we DO have 12 draft picks.

Reload and go again!

Remember when some people were worried about Ray Rice 'disrespecting' the terrible towel? About how its cursed so many teams and how it was bad karma for the rest of the season...

We won the Super Bowl. Jinxes aren't real. Relax B)

I understand not wanting to hear that. Like with the Eagles. That brought on a ton of criticism and pressure that team didn't need. I can't say that part of the reason they sucked so bad wasn't that they were trying to live up to the Dream Team label. I think in this case, it won't be taken too seriously because it's Arthur Jones. If it had been Ray Rice, Terrell Suggs or Flacco this would be the beginning of a media crap-storm.

The Eagles lacked team cohesion, chemistry, good, disciplined coaching, and a good QB. We are not the Eagles.

Well. we DID just win the Superbowl, but I don't like it. It might be true from a personnel standpoint, but I still don't want to hear about this for the next 6 months.

You guys are missing the point. It's all about what the media can and will blow out of proportion. BA's comments and Rice and the stupid towel are relative non stories. The "dream team" though played out for a full year already with the Eagles. How many times has that been written about? Now Arthur opened the can of worms.

I can honestly see reporters asking Raven players about the "dream team" at mini camp, training camp, preseason, and into the regular season. I hope I'm wrong though.

I understand fans might not like it, but I don't find this to be a big deal. Totally different than Vince Young's comment. That was truly a dream team with the amount of high profile players the Eagles signed.

The Ravens just followed the same blueprint we always have. That's all.

As for Jones' comment, not a big deal. He said it's "like a dream team in the making", key words 'like' 'in the making'. It's not that big.

The only reason anyone cared about Vince Young saying it was because people actually believed it.

No one thinks we're a dream team.
