"He's a physically imposing man who is very athletic and smart on top of that. He really has the full complement of weapons." Great description - add "motivated" and you have nailed it - one of the brightest spots on the Ravens.

And he deserves to be in the Pro Bowl.

I know that this has nothing to do with this story,but why haven't the Ravens tried to talk Chris Simms into coming to Baltimore,I know it would take a while for him to learn the system,but he would be better then what they have right now until Flaaco is ready,that way they could get rid of Boller right now.

Simms hasnt played a meaningful down in the NFL in years and the last time I saw him he didnt look good at all.

Hey guys did you see Amy Fadool on fox 45 sports news last night. Wow! She's a knockout! I'm sorry I digress but Cam pull out all the stops in game 1. He's gotta run the ball more than pass for Flacco to have a chance. Go with 4 wides, empty backfield, shotgun, trick plays, shuffle passes, sweeps,etc, etc. Rex has got to put the pressure on Palmer to have any chance of stopping their offense. I want to see how good Rex is as a defensive genius this week. He has a real challenge on his hands with the DB's we have available. Let's hope that Yamon Figurs scores a touchdown on a kickoff. I don't know about you but I am so excited about Ravens football. 6 days to kickoff!!!!

I remember that. Goes to show you that most of these so-called experts dont know jack. It would be great if Ngata asked him on national tv(espn) about his comments.

What is the latest on Willis Mcghee? I think we are about to see why Buffalo was so happy to get rid of this man. Is it a smart move to bring in Chad Jackson who was cut from the Patriots? I remember that he was a high draft pick with great speed. Who starts at corner back this week with Fabian Washington out with suspension. Is C-Mac and Rolle ready to go?

a 12th overall pick should develop into a pro-bowl canidate. he is one of the few draft picks ozzie didnt whiff on.

One of the few draft picks Ozzie didn't whiff on? How many cans of paint didn't you huff on? No denying the fact that he's made mistakes at the QB position and on offense in general, but let's keep it real here - there is a reason people who know the business of football regard Ozzie as one of the best at his job. I'm not talking about the morons who cry all day on these forums, I'm talking about people who make their living in the business of professional football. But don't let facts get in the way of your opinion, you're entitled.

I'm tired of people ripping on Ozzie. Name some whiffs, not including Wr's or Qb's since over half of ALL those drafted at those positions fail within a few years, you cannot account for injuries either as it has nothing to do with drafting talent... just bad luck. And if someone tries to mention Derek Anderson I'm going to punch you in the face, we were trying to get him on the practice squad but he didn't make it through waivers... it happens all the time, we just didn't get lucky. At the time could you really have justified wasting a roster position for another qb?

Thank you finally maybe a ravens fan with some common sense. Ozzie is one of the best in the business. What picks did he "whiff" on? Your counting boller, thats it. If you remember he also got suggs in that same draft before boller. So use some commmon sense all these ravens fans do is believe everything espn tells them and believe everything that the radio says. Believe me nothign will be as bad as they say it will be. So think for yourself and stop saying whatever anita and preston tell you
