Offseason changes 

Post#1 » by reeDfense » Thu Jan 26, 2012 9:38 pm

What changes do you think the ravens have to make to get back to the AFC championship game....I personally think you focus on signing rice, tag grubbs and get younger on defense...smith will be better.next year having been in the system for a year...as well as getting Evans back to 100%. Boldin is still decent. I also think we need to find the heir apparent to rays throne..possibly burfict if he falls....also congrats to pagano he has my full support in indy.

I've been wondering this at work all the time. I always have a lot of time to think about things at work. I think get a fast linebacker next to Ray, and i want another pass rusher. Terrell Suggs really slowed down in the playoffs, maybe because he was hurt but still. Our secondary is awesome, i dont want any changes there, but i wanna pressure the QB a lot better than we did this year. We started great with Kruger and McPhee really having an impact, but at the end of the year they regressed. McPhee was a rookie and will come back stronger maybe.

Also since Matt Birk will retire, Center is a big concern. Maybe go with Gurode? I wouldnt mind Gurode, he was great in Dallas.

I think konz might fall to the second round..if so that would be very nice..in the first i would be happy with hightower or burfict if they fall..newsome is great at finding talent in the lower rounds will be interesting to see what he does

Vontaze Burfict would be nice imo. Dude is kinda crazy but a really good linebacker... he would be awesome under "coach" Ray Lewis. I havent seen that kid hightower play much, so i dont know how good he is.

Do we stick with McKinnie at LT? I think so, a full training camp will hopefully make our OL a lot better.

I would stick with mckinnie he brought some stability to the lft side of the line that wasn't there the last couple of seasons....burfict reminds me alot if ray..and as far as hightower goes in my mind he is the.best LB in the draft...and he is versatile he can play inside or out..YouTube some film of him..and he is a great leader...

Robert Mathis, Reggie Wayne, Jeff Saturday and Pierre Garcon are all free-agents this off-season. Boy would they all fit perfectly with the ravens.

Ricky Williams will come back to back-up Ray Rice. I like it, although i'd like to see Anthony Allen a lot more this season. I know he had hip-issues all season long, so it will be exciting to see what he can bring. I am big on this kid.

Man i hate the NFL off-season.

I wont watch the superbowl once again, i just cant decide which team i want to lose more.

By the way i want the Ravens to draft Ronnell Lewis from OU in this years draft. This guy has potential to be a great pass-rusher.


And whats up with Sergio Kindle? He disappeared completely.

Meh I never watched the kid before..not a big fan of OU...as far as kindle goes..when he fractured his skull he lost hearing in one of his ears so he has been using hand signals..not to mention every snap he plays he risks severely hurting himself..I think they are just taking it very slow with him..and giving him time to adjust

It is shqipe.


Ricky Williams retired. I think Anthony Allen will be ready. I like him a lot. If not, sign Kevin Smith or some other back-up RB. Not worried about that position at all. I want a great O-Line. Fixing the O-Line has to be our No.1 priority.

Matt Birk is coming back. Not sure how i feel about that since he didnt play that well in the playoffs.

This is a great vonta leach hit by the way:
