Just curious who everyone thinks is more important to the team if only one can be re-signed.  I personally feel a lineman is more essential due to his effect on the run on pass game and adding some stability to the o line.  The upcoming draft is also deep at TE and WR.  A LT will who can perform at Monroes level at his age will difficult to find as well.  I'm not sure if the team would be able to afford both and think Pitta is out for a payday, which I feel he deserves.

Pitta is easily one of my favorite Ravens. Love the guy! But we have a better chance of winning with Monroe and not Pitta than we do with Pitta and not Monroe.

 

It's gotta be Monroe.

It's obvious, it's gotta be Monroe.  Franchise LTs are hard to find.

...uh...Monroe. It's a no-brainer. I like Pitta a lot but Monroe's protecting Joe. If Monroe isn't there Pitta won't be able to get open and even if he does he won't be able to get the ball.

Pitta is clutch but Monroe actively improves the ground game as well as nullifying the blindside rusher.

LT will always be the more important position. Owen Daniels was an amazing TE under Kubiak. How do we compare Daniels and Pitta? They are completely different types of TE.

Pitta is a decent TE, that's about it. Not sure why people even consider using the tag on him and pay him 5-10 mil. per year. Let him walk, we'll be fine with most other options we have at TE. Dickson is ok and has looked way better than Pitta early on, then he hit the wall. And who knows what we have in Furstenburg, give him a shot.

 

Monroe it is. Lock him up.

Monroe, or a LT signing is more important.

 

I agree about Furstenburg, but historically speaking the Ravens haven't advanced many players from the practice squad so I see his chance as very slim. The rare advancement from practice squad has caused me to wonder about the quality of practice squads around the league and how the quality of ours may rank.

 

I know it would be just another meaningless column or article but I'd be interested in reading where analyst ranked the quality of team's Practice Squads, maybe twice or quarterly during the season.

Absolutely by far Eugene Monroe is the more important player. We traded a 4th and 5th round pick to get him and LT is a far more vital position and Dennis Pitta could more easily be replaced.

 

It seems that we are more concentrated on getting Dennis Pitta resigned though...he may in fact be a higher priority than Monroe...or it sure seems that way. Keep hearing talks of using the franchise tag on Pitta if a long term deal cannot be reached before the deadline, while the Monroe talks have been slow at best.

 

Hopefully we could keep both of them but if one must go it has to be Dennis Pitta if not we are going to have a gaping black hole of an o-line.

I think a better thread could be Art Jones vs Pitta.

Easy choice. LT 2nd most important position on O after QB. Plenty of receiving options in the draft. Only 3 stud LTs in the draft and they'll probally be gone.

Gotta protect the $120 mil investment. Monroe is the obvious choice.

I do not think we should break the bank for Monroe.. He is a slightly above average LT...

 

I would offer him around 7 million a year and not a penny more

 

Pitta

 

I would offer 5 million and not a penny more..

 

 

Both are replaceable.... I don't see pereniall pro bowl in either one of their futures.
