    Willie Gay

    is having a heck of a game... and a solid season for that matter. Great off season pick up by the black and gold.

    Absolutely. He got lucky on the under-thrown deep ball, but overall, he had a very good game.

    He got very lucky on that deep ball and while I admit he's playing better, his history suggests it's only a matter of time before he comes up small in a big spot.

    Which is ironic, because I recall Flacco getting $100M because "he throws the best deep ball in the NFL".

    I don't want to be the guy who says I told you so, but the biggest loss to the Ravens wasn't Ray, wasn't Reed...it was trading away Boldin. Now Flacco can't just close his eyes and heave the ball and expect Anquan to fight to come down with it. He made Flacco, and the Ravens have now handcuffed themselves with $100M contract for an average QB.

    ...and they gave Boldin up to the HC's brother's team for a 6th. The dumbest thing Flacco did was sign for big money and then acting like Boldin should get paid too. No, you idiot.. you got Boldin's money. If Flacco truly wanted to win he would have found a way to structure his contract and keep Boldin. A few years from now we will see Flacco on the block because he isn't that type of QB.

    Flacco is going to become Daunte Culpepper. The only time Culpepper looked like an NFL QB was when he could drop back, sky the ball, and let superfreak Randy Moss go up and come down with it. All it took was a big arm.

    Last season, Boldin did that for Flacco time and time again. He could have easily finished with twice as many ints as he had, and a fraction of the yardage, if it was not for Boldin. He was outstanding and a very underrated factor in their SB run...he was the most important offensive weapon for them.

    And he is a top shelf character guy, too. Good to see him having success.



    Never argue with stupid people.
    They will drag you down to their level
    and then sick beat you with their experience.

    Willie has been solid, Allen has been a disappointment but even he seems to be getting better as the weeks go on and he heals.

    I was vehemently against this signing. But I will man up and gladly recognize I was wrong. He has had a real solid start to the year and I am glad to see it. You really can't ask for much more, he has played well vs the run and the pass.
