The Ravens still have issues that have not been addressed thus far. They don't have a pass rush or a receiver that can stretch the field. Torrey Smith was drafted to be our deep threat, but the Ravens have a bad track record when it comes to drafting WR's. Some secondary help wouldn't hurt either. I would like to see them grab ex-49er Nate Clements and then make a trade for Osi Uminyora. There's really no reciever available out there right now that could help this team. We just have to hope that Torrey Smith is the guy.

Torrey is a good pick, he will kill the Steelers, I can feel it. The Steelers still have no OL depth and a bad secondary and aging LBs/DL so we're in the same boat.

Our LBs and DLs may be old but they're still damn good 8)

Harrison is a complete headcase. He's a good player, but I wonder how much more the Rooney's will put up with before they send him packing.

Ever since he beat the crap out of the defenseless punter in the Super Bowl against Arizona, I stopped appreciating his talent and now want him out of the game.

Manning re-upped for 90/5, same AAV as Brady (72/4). It was good of him to take less money, Irsay wanted to give him 20+ AAV so that he could earn more than Brady... I think he forgot that there's a cap now.

He didn't beat the crap out of a defenseless punter, he threw some punches at a blocker on the ground. Not cool no matter how you slice it, but it wasn't a punter.

He did it to a punter. You may be thinking of a different incident.

He was engaged with a blocker on a punt, who went low on Harrison, pissing him off and causing him to basically try to kill the dude. I don't remember any incident in which he tried punching a punter multiple times.

I think I was sitting next to the President of the NY Metro Jets Nutswingerz society last night.  Pretty sure the dude wanted Rex Ryan to tickle his feet...

That's freaked up dude.  :rofl:

I'd love to see that dude sitting next to UMD for a couple of hours. They can take turns fantasizing, one minute Rex Ryan the next "Big Ben".

Top 6 teams to beat in the NFC and AFC respectively.

I currently have in the NFC (in no particular order): Green Bay, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Atlanta, Chicago and either Tampa Bay or Dallas. In the AFC (again in no particular order) New York, New England, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, San Diego and Indianapolis. I'll have to think it through more thoroughly before actually ranking them.

ESPN seems to be reporting that Burress is signing with NY.

I'm pumped about the Raven's signing of Vonta Leach. That guy is easily the best fullback in football. He should be able to open up some holes for Ray Rice this season. I'm liking their renewed focus on going back to smashmouth football.

I call bogus on the Randy Moss retirement. He'll play for someone this year.

Leach is solid, but i wouldn't call him the best FB in the game.

I think the Ravens are going to miss McClain. I know he hasn't been used as a rushing threat much recently, but who's going to be Rice's backup? And if he gets hurt? I think McClain's bruising style was a great compliment to Rice, and he at least was proven to be a legit rushing threat if something did happen to Rice.
