If I was Rhys Lloyd I would tell the Ravens take Flying Leap every week he get cut and resign .One week its not going to happen someone will sign him .You just don't do that to a kicker that kick a 55 yard FG that could of went for 70 yards in preseason .Jonathan Ogden is DONE put him on RI list and kept Lloyd on the 53 man roster.The Ravens are starting the sound like the O's making wrong moves!

I'm not disputing Boller and the Ravens road woes. But to begin with, it's more like ancient history, since the makeup of the 2004 team isn't anything at all like the makeup of the 2006/2007 teams.

Closer to modern history, when does the spotlight shift to Steve McNair having to prove he can still be an effective QB? He hasn't had a really decent outing since before the Buffalo game last year.

This business of Boller always having to prove himself while McNair gets a perpetual free ride is old.

McGahee will do something stupid, what the hell does that mean. Maybe he'll pull out a water gun and spray all you Bills fan? What kind of comment was that..

McGahee run'em over bro...

And who was that reporter who "had" to get a comment from his old teammate stating McGahee was "borderline, retarded" now why would you even report that? Do us a favor and tell us about what we can do to win not about someones mental being, moron....

Seems to me it's a motivational tool for McGahee. Let's hope it is and it pisses Willis off.

Rhys does look like a potential replacment to Stover if/when he retires. I hope Boller has a good day but that line is young. That kid has a great attitude!

I thought this post was about Boller's anticipated performance in the Bill's game. If only he had an offensive line to help him out. I think if he had an offensive line of first string players he would show much improvement. I commend the play of the rookies; however, I think Boller and McGahee would perform better if they had some offensive blockers. I'm concerend about our play today. defense was spotty and offense was not impressive. How will we ever beat Indy, NE and Pitt? I'll keep the faith GO RAVENS

As far as Boller goes, he had a real up/down kind of game. He made some GREAT passes, and some real duds. All in all, we still could have won this game if there had been better play calling and execution in the final two minutes.

Yes, I agree. I noticed that if McNair fumbles the snap, or the ball falls out of his hand while he is trying to pass, or if he trips over center, nothing is said--it is as if nothing happened. If Boller does anyone of those things, then we have to hear a story about why the Ravens got McNair. One of my favorite comments from a sport caster around the half-way point last year was that the Ravens offense is not doing too well, but that will all change now that McNair is the QB. I guess it never occurred to the sport caster that those poor offensive statistics were mainly McNair's statistics.(Boller did help the statistics with his 104 QB rating.)
