Hesitant to sign flacco

Recommended Posts

If I were the ravens I would be extremely hesitant to sign joe flacco for a lot of money and years, because this is a contract year and everyone knows how ok players become great during contract years ex. Albert haynesworth. So while flacco is doing well, the ravens should be hesitant to give flacco big money and long years

So because it didn't work out for Haynesworth, that means that the Ravens should be hesistant to sign Flacco?

Please, it's in their best favour to sign Flacco now.

No I'm saying sign flacco just not for big money or many years

Not just haynesworth but a lot of players perform in a contract year then never perform again

Flacco isn't exactly elite

If Flacco keeps playing the way he has been he deserves good money. He doesn't strike me as the type who only puts his all in when money is on the line, I just think the Ravens have finally got the right pieces in place for him to work with. I've never thought too highly of his ability but I'll be forced to change my mind if he keeps this up.

Lol I don't like the Eagles but I really really don't like the Ravens. Plus it's another AFC loss, can't be mad about that hahaha.

I can at least respect the Ravens defense, even if their fans are annoying and Flacco is an abominable QB when it counts.

I can't respect the Eagles anything.

Yeah, I too can respect their defense but there's a list of players on their team that I just do not like, nor their head coach or fans. The Eagles have a lot of cocky guys too but I at least like Reid, Vick and 'Meco, those guys deserve to be successful in my opinion ( just this season, anyway).

I've always liked Ryans, which is unfortunate considering my distaste for that team. Vick is an overrated player and an awful human being and Reid is... well, he'd probably be the best offensive coordinator in the league but he just lacks certain skills to succeed as a head coach (e.g., time management). I dislike Reid because of the company he keeps.

True that, but I think Vick's made great strides in improving his image. It will never take away what he did of course but he's definitely improved. He is definitely overrated, but we'll see if he can actually stay on the field and lead his team this year. If he does, he definitely makes the Eagles a serious threat in the playoffs, much moreso than Edwards or Foles can anyway. We'll see if he has what it takes, but the Redskins, Cowboys, and Giants defenses will have something to say about that of course lol.

    • Coutee was a late waive (last cut day) by Houston that surprised a lot of folks, and we jumped on him quickly (I think it was around the time we knew TY would miss time). I don't mean necessarily that someone will grab him for a starter roll, but he'll get grabbed by someone (PS or 53). He's been in the league 4 seasons, but not sure he's met the accrued 4 year stipulation (weeks on 53). Strachan and Patmon both have a little film out there which will interest teams. Patmon has a bit of a rep for not being a my-ball guy, so that likely hurts him. Strachan is seen as raw with a high ceiling so teams are more likely to romanticize lol. All three would at least make it to a team, 53 or PS. But I think Strachan is the most likely claimed for a 53 spot. 
    • This happens every year with a late round pick. Fans go crazy and they wind up doing nothing. I just don’t get invested in that late of a draft pick because chances are slim they contribute.
    • Its not that Strachan was only a 7th round pick, so who cares?    Ballard and the scouts think they’ve uncovered a Diamond in the rough.   He’s 6’5” and 225 and runs 4.5.   And he played zero high level football until he came to the Colts.    Think of all of our draft video’s over the years where Ballard says we want traits, high level traits.   Those are things you can’t coach up.   And you can’t coach up 6’5” 225 and 4.5.   But we can coach up his ability to read defenses and the routes that he runs, and even his hands.   Those you can make better.    If you’re hung up on the round we drafted him in, think of it this way….  Had he gone to a Big Boy school like Georgia,  or Notre Dame, or USC, he likely would’ve been drafted higher.   The kid has raw talent.   We’ve given Patmon two years of polishing, odds are we’d like to give Strachan the same. 
    • I think they keep 6, and that Strachan makes the 53 man squad. As for Patmon, the guy looks like a TE these days. Been pumping that iron overtime. 
    • Probably more to do with the Colts and Chargers are fringe playoff teams that could be battling for the postseason that late in the year.  Should be a big game for seeding or possibly an actual playoff spot.
