Maybe he misremembers.

To be fair, his stats with the Ravens weren't that much worse than his stats with the Titans even though he was older and past his prime. When you take that into account along with the fact that he had Steve McNair throwing to him on the Titans, but Kyle Bowler throwing to him on the Ravens, that's pretty significant.

Mason's QBs on the Ravens:

Flacco: 48 starts
McNair: 22 starts
Boller: 17 starts

/Anthony Wright & Troy Smith started the other 9 games.
//Mason's statements during the retirement conference showed the epitome of class.

Well, his passes did sometimes look like he was hucking a bowling ball, so maybe you had it right the first time.

I wanted to just amend the quote to:

To be fair, as a Ravens fan I can tell you that the Boller era seemed to last much longer than it actually did.

WTF did I just read? If your last job was with the Texans, then you're retiring as a Texan. The rest is horseshiat.

I like to think of it as the Kyle Boller error and yes, it did feel like it lasted forever.

He signed a one day contract with the Ravens in order to retire with the team. It's not that uncommon.

So, is he retiring as a Raven for future endorsements? Baltimore is a bigger market than Tennessee.

I'm pretty sure the used car salesman market is about the same no matter where you live. That being said, Eastern Motors does have some of the best abuses of our local sports personalities.

Alex Ovechkin

Of course he could always go the law firm route like Matt Stover and Bubba Smith.

Guy was one of the most reliable fantasy football roster spots out there for a number of years. Always knew about exactly what you were gonna get.

Yep. Mason was kind of Exhibit A for not drafting wide receivers in the first round. Every year you see advice along the lines of "Why draft Player X in the first round when you can get very solid production from Player Y in the sixth round?" Mason was Player Y for the better part of a decade. Player X was alternately Randy Moss/Marvin Harrison/Terrell Owens/Torry Holt.

Absolutely serious. I guess you don't play fantasy football, but that's pretty standard wisdom. All of those players were better than Mason, year in and year out; but the difference was not so great that it would justify taking that high pick. If instead you took a running back in the late first round (say 10th-12th pick), you could get someone like Tiki Barber, whereas if you waited until the 6th round for a running back you'd probably wind up with a second-stringer or a fullback whose best hope was the occasional "vulture touchdown." Barber + Mason is a much better combination than Moss + scraps at RB. It's the same today, though the names have changed. (Marshawn Lynch in the 1st and Greg Jennings in the 6th will be much better than Calvin Johnson in the 1st and Pierre Thomas in the 6th.)
