    Harbaugh agrees to extension

    Whats hilarious is the statement that we "won't be winning meaningful football anytime soon" coming off a 10-6 season winning the division with no playmakers on either side of the ball. A terrible coach doesn't have his team consistently in contention with a lack of talent. When Lamar took over they changed the whole offense mid season and it worked great, I don't see how the coaching doesn't get any credit for that. I agree with a lot of what atomic said in his post, but to act like Harbaugh is or has been holding this team back from greatness is ridiculous. Also to say Lamar scrambled repeatedly and that got them to the playoffs is also just flat out wrong. He definitely scrambled at times and extended plays or took off running on passing plays for big plays but the success of the offense was based on the running game. Designed runs, not Lamar scrambling. You know the plays the coaches called.

    Harbaugh agrees to extension

    I don’t think Harbaugh is the great coach that the national media makes him out to be but I also don’t think he is terrible like many around here do. He got them to the playoffs this year and a play away last year, two teams that really didn’t have a lot of talent and a total lack of playmakers.

    This is according to Chris Mortenson. He doesn’t have any details yet on the contract.

    Flacco's Fate ...... Possible trades

    Maybe, but if it is in a trade I don't see any reason why Flacco would renegotiate when he can go to free agency and get more. Spotrac has the Panthers with 11.6 million in cap space with the raise in the salary cap figured in and Flacco's base salary for next year in his current contract is 18.5.

    The Panthers do not have much cap room right now but I don't know much about how much they may able to free up with extensions and releases.

    I'd rather use the money on Z. Smith.

    They aren’t all bad. I like listening to Mike Preston and Vinny Cerrato (even though he sniffs into the mic every two seconds) break down games.

    Flacco's Fate ...... Possible trades

    Wasn’t trying to put words in your mouth. You’ve said multiple times he is a “good” QB and I said you thought he was above average. I just thought good meant above average or maybe even better.

    That grade for Jefferson is surpising. I see they graded Weddle as the #10 safety which is even more surpising considering he played all 16 games without an interception and only 3 passes defenses. I realize there’s a lot more to being a safety than the stats but still that’s pretty unimpressive.

    One of them should go. We shouldn’t go into next season with two slow safeties that can’t cover again.

    I actually think Jefferson may be addition by subtraction. Chuck Clark filled in for him well and has done well in limited playing time in the past, now I don’t know if he is solid over 16 games but IMO Jefferson is a liability so I’ll at least take the cheaper guy if it came down to those two.

    Flacco's Fate ...... Possible trades

    Literally no one has argued that Flacco is the best QB in Ravens history. People are simply stating that he is clearly not the same QB he was when he won the Super Bowl but you seem to think he is still an above average starter with nothing to back that up. I love how if anyone points out flaws for Flacco they are a Lamar apologist even if Lamar isn’t even in the conversation. That’s the only argument that you ever fall back to besides all of the excuses is that he is better than Lamar. Also a point I didn’t get to in one of your prior posts was about seeing where Flacco goes and making a bet on how he or his team does. I have no interest in betting considering I will be rooting for Flacco to succeed. The only way I wouldn’t is if he were in the AFC North which is extremely unlikely. I was hoping for him and Kubiak to go to Jacksonville.

    Flacco's Fate ...... Possible trades

    http://www.espn.com/nfl/boxscore?gameId=330929002 But Joe Flacco never had a terrible game! One terrible game from Lamar makes him a bust! Flacco only threw 5 interceptions because he didn’t have good receivers and the offensive line couldn’t block anybody and the play calling was terrible! The Ravens section of this board has become a joke.

    Flacco's Fate ...... Possible trades

    Yes it is. It’s like trying to have a conversation with a little kid and the kid just covers his ears and keeps yelling “it’s not Flacco’s fault” an offense can’t underachieve for 3 years and the QB not shoulder any of the blame.

    Flacco's Fate ...... Possible trades

    It is crazy. The offense has been disappointing for year because of the line, the running game, the receivers, the coordinators, and Harbaugh, but Flacco was fine, its hilarious. Then we switch to Lamar and all of a sudden the QB is the problem with the passing game. Well the QB was a big part of the problem all along, it's just a much different situation now.
