People talk about Heap being injury prone, but how about Wilcox. He's always hurt and will now miss Sunday.
That is a good point.
I believe the Ravens understand the constants for this team and organization.
Ray Lewis being in the middle is clearly a constant for so many generations of LBs he has been apart of. We haven't heard from the Hartwell's, Sharper's and Thomas's since they left, while new young talent continues to explode on this defense.
Ozzie Newsome may have made some miscues on drafting certain offensive positions such as WR and a big mistake with Kyle Boller(That high at the very least), but he is another constant of why our defense continues to be great. Ed Reed already has former players and experts saying that he has the potential to be the greatest safety of all time(aside from Ronnie Lott). He already has one defensive player of the year award and can turn any interception into 6 points in a heartbeat, all the while laying the lumber as good as the other safeties in the league.
Haloti Ngata may be looking at a Pro Bowl year this year alongside Albert Haynesworth. He pushes the pile so far back at times, team are forced to go side to side where Ray Lewis and company eat them up.
Antwan Barnes and McClain have great potential and seem to have the right attitude along with it.
It is for this reason that I believe this is Bart Scott's last season as a Raven. His liability in pass coverage is a weakness that will not be overlooked at the end of the year. I just hope that he doesn't go to New England and, rather than just take his money and be happy, run off at the mouth about Ray Lewis and his former team *coughs* AD *coughs*. Oh Wait, that's almost every linebacker except for Boulware that's left Ray here. Hartwell did it too.
