This was an unfortunate situation. I too found it difficult for both DBs to stay healthy, but I thought that we could possibly have one of them healthy for a while.

Now, I'm not going to bash the front office for not drafting a DB, because Fabian Washington has the talent to be a starter. He has played well and the only big plays I've seen him give up have been a pass against Pitt when he nearly got his hands on the pass(Great throw by Ben), and a few deep passes against Oakland where their recievers actually went up and fought for the ball(Unlike our recievers).

If we would have drafted a rookie, chances are, he'd be getter burned anyway, so the immediate problem still would not be fixed.

I do agree that we definitely need to draft some Cornerbacks in 09. I agree with the best player available policy our front office has in most cases though. There's no point in drafting a DB in the first round, just because we need one, if he isn't good. Still, I would think we should keep a close eye on the corners that come out for the 09 draft.

Well they made a mistake not drafting CB's, everyone excpet the Ravens front office new this was coming, hell even Preston got this one right. Ozzie likes to avoid reality like he did years ago with Terry Allen as RB thinking he was going to fill the void for Jamal Lewis when he got hurt.

I agree. It blows my mind that we didn't pick-up a CB in the draft. We better be looking for a CB and a WR in the early rounds next year.

Flacco is gonna have to start winning games as opposed to managing them.

We did pick up a CB in the draft, his name was Fabian Washington. We gave up a 4th round pick, for a first round player. Now, do we need another?? Yes we do, but we need some real Recievers too. Mark Clayton is a BUST and Demetrius Williams is a joke. I wont even mention the other WR clowns we got in the draft this year. Trouble is, out TE situation is terrible too. Heap is done, and Wilcox cant stay healthy. Quinn is a very good TE, but who knows if he'll ever be right again after the injury.
