I can just hear 70% of football fans across the Country saying to themselves, "Tyler Huntley? WTF is that?"

If they are going to have flag football I would make it an old-timer's game. I'd give that a watch.

Only 70?

I was being generous.  I figured 30% of football fans are astute enough to know the name.

I remember watching parts when I was a kid. I think the last one I ever watched was a ridiculous high scoring game. I think, the AFC was trailing by one and was lining up for a game winning FG, and the NFC actually tried to block it, and maybe did for the win as the AFC lineman just stood there, like both lines do in these games. But for that 5 seconds one team actually tried to play defense. 

 

 

There was always that extra money incentive for the winner, and if the game was close at the end the defense stepped up for that extra 25K.

Wasn't it a flag football game in the preseason that the Ravens mascot broke his leg. An over zealous kid decided to tackle him.

I'd like to meet someone who actually watches the Pro Bowl. The ratings are pretty high, yet I don't know a single person who watches it. 

 

In all seriousness, a skills competition is something I'd rather watch, but probably still won't. 

 

 

It still draws more viewers than an NBA game.

He just signed a one year contract before the season.  I think it was worth close to $900,000.  Wouldn't it have been wild if his agent had them throw in a clause that pays him $2 million if he makes the pro bowl.  Can you imagine Steve Biscotti writing that check for a 2 TD performance?

For 5th year options at least the incentive is tied to the original ballot only, so I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s standard. Makes sense, as it’s not that crazy for a 6th alternate like Carr to make it when everyone else is hurt or bows out.

There should only be one question, who will be the starting quarterback? Everything else is predicated on that.

As much as the Ravens may wax poetic about how there's a 200% chance Jackson comes back,I think the true answer they'll give when that is asked this that they don't know yet.

The idea that the offense is built around Lamar Jackson's unique abilities is overblown. Certainly his running ability gives them great options, but if Jackson is not here I'm sure the next guy will be mobile. And they sure do need to feed Dobbins and keep the ground game as the focus of Ravens football. I will even say the problem is not the receivers; a lot can be done with healthy Bateman and Duvernay, Robinson and some draft or FA additions.

 

The new OC needs to balance the running with passing that is creative and effective. Don't give up on the run so easily. The idea that Jackson can't pass is not true. He would read defenses better if he got to the line with a few seconds to look at it. Do something aggressive with all those quality TE pass catchers. Run WRs out of the backfield. Go deep sometimes. Hit the seams quick in stride, getting guys into space.  It's OK with me if the new OC brings in all new people. The offense needs revival

2 things. When did a $16 million bump become almost $20 million? In football money that's 4 players.

 

How did the Jags get to $22 million over the cap .?  I expect that from the Packers, Saints & Vikings each year.

Brian McFarland of RSR had the Ravens Rule of 51 commitment for the 41 players currently under contract at just over $190 million. That's based on an estimated $225 million cap (which actually came in at $224.8), which would give the Ravens about $35 million in cap space to work with.

 

Of course, that figure doesn't represent the team's cap with a full roster. The Ravens are in better shape cap-wise than a lot of teams, but they still have a lot of work to do between now and when the new league year begins on March 15, particularly if they have to use the franchise tag on Lamar Jackson.

They went heavy into free agency last offseason when they had about $56 million of cap space.

Those must have come with big 2nd yr jumps up in pay.
