I don't get it. For the past five years or so I see us draft these players at need positions, give them 4 or 5 year contracts, let them ride the bench for 3 or 4 years and then let them start for a year or two, and then suddenly they are stars that we can't afford to sign them. Evidently some teams out there think that they should have been starting way before we came to that conclusion. I thought that my season tickets were being raised by a third so we could compete in the free agency market?

Joey Porter!? We can't be so desperate that we'd consider that guy. He has no respect for the organization and would clearly just be looking to get paid. Let him take his bad attitude someplace else. He's no Raven.

Why do we even try 2 renegoiate with Jamal Lewis he has proven to be incosistent. I feeL Willis McG would be a great asset for the team but it doesn't seem like our team feels like we need 2 upgrade? I don't understand?

We need to start from scratch, we suck!, last year was so hard to watch, we had such a good team, and we blew it, outside of embarassing pittsburgh twice, last year was a joke, Gay lewis needs to retire, adulis should have never been let go, Mcnair is done, our coach is a douche, Ogden is done, Suggs is the Man, and we could solve all of these problems if we could just find a way to sign Joey porter, he could replace the has been lewis, and would be better at it, what we should do is get Cowher, Porter, Randle El, and Bettis to come to bal., change our name to the steelers, move to pittsburgh, and then maybe we could have a real fan base! yep thats what we need

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is doing a great job! He's keeping the Ravens competitive and in pursuit of a Super Bowl but also keeping up in a position where every year we can draft good picks, look at the free agency picture or re-sign keep people.

I think the ravens just need to draft a running back like tony hunt from Penn St. who is a big bruiser who performed well in the senior bowl and then maybe sign corey dillion or we could let Mike anderson who is a good veteran start and pair him up with a good rookie. I will miss Adalius and losing him to a AFC team is not what we needed but Jarret Johnson is similar in body build and could be a good starter.

We shouldn't waste trading a draft pick on McGahee and we definetly do not need Joey Porter who does not respect our team. the ravens are still a great team.

I would like to see the Ravens go with a speed back either in the draft or signing a FA such as Dominick Rhodes.

Letting go of Ovie was a massive mistake that could spell disaster this year. If Justin Green cant do it then the only other person that can possibly take over is Mike Anderson. Overall the position is not deep, and a rookie would scare me. The salery locked Ravens need to find a way keeping drafted players here longer. Also, Jamal (Ballerina) Lewis needs to go. That tap dancing stuff that he does does not belong on the Ravens. The Ravens need to draf a third string QB because Mcnair is almost done and Boller proved that he was a fluke. Offensive linemaen should be on top of the Ravens draft board as well backups for defensive lineman and saftey. Billick and his coaching staff are doing a great job so no one should be complaining about them.

I don't understand. My tickets went up 33 1/3%, we've lost three key starters (and I 'm not including J. Lewis who we should let go) including possibly the best player on the team and the Raven's line is that the team is strong enough to compete. Come on, Mcnair is a has been almost certain to go down via injury this year, R. Lewis is almost done and Ogden is on the down side.

We were a good running back away from a super bowl ring last season. That must be obvious to everyone by now. How can we allow these competing teams to stockpile two running backs when we can't sign one good back. Smith and Anderson were so little used last year that I wonder why they're even on the roster. Jamal, as much as I love him, is no longer an option. Let's get a back.

You've got a tough, though not front liner, in Mr Corey Ross. Don't overlook this impressive young guy. I admit I'm biased as I'm a Nebraskan and a big fan of Corey's. He's got heart, and can get you the tough yards.
