Agatha Crispy: 26 years old and still in single A?
Representative of the unwashed masses: There's an 'elite' joke there somewhere...
Rhypskallion: Super Chronic: Seriously, you're happy about keeping a somewhat-above-average QB who is now the highest paid player ever and forced the team to cut ties with Reed, Boldin, Ellerbe, Kruger and Pollard?I mean, Ozzie Newsome is entitled to a lot of deference given his track record, but I can't see how fans can be happy with this.Well, since you're uninformed of the real salary cap numbers; Flacco is costing the Ravens under 7mil in NFL league year 2013. The departed players who are now on other teams rosters so far have 2013 cap numbers totaling over 30mil for 2013. Even if they had chosen to not re-sign Joe, they could only have kept 1 of the others. ONE. Are Ravens Fans happy? No. Is this Joe's fault? No. Is Joe more valuable than any ONE of those departed players? Oh ya.The Ravens assumed the total cap number would rise faster than it has over the past few years. And frankly, with the NFL Network on Time Warner for the first time, it probably should have jumped more this year than it did.
