Default Ravens' Leach: 'It's really just another game'

Ravens' Leach: 'It's really just another game'

Preston: Leach best free-agent acquisition in Ravens history
http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/b...5711901.column


Quote:
Ravens fullback Vonta Leach has several nicknames like "The Hammer," "Coke Machine" and "Sweet Feet," but he already has made a name for himself as one of the best free-agent acquisitions in team history.

Only tight end Shannon Sharpe in 2000 made such an immediate impact as a free-agent signee on a Ravens list that includes safety Rod Woodson, receiver Derrick Mason, defensive tackle Sam Adams and defensive end Michael McCrary, who is in the team’s Ring of Honor.

But old "Sweet Feet" has brought instant success and helped running back Ray Rice, who tweeted on the day the Ravens signed Leach, "Let the fun begin," have one of his best seasons.

Since the off season when Leach signed a three-year deal worth $11 million, the Ravens have rushed for 1,996 yards with Rice gaining 1,364 on 291 carries. During the first half of this season, offensive coordinator Cam Cameron toyed with the idea of trying to make quarterback Joe Flacco the centerpiece of the offense.

But in the second half , the Ravens turned to Rice, who then turned to his 6-foot, 255-pound body guard, Mr. Leach.
I always liked Vonta.

I think he played in the playoffs w green bay. But I think the main point is playing against his former team.

That's a bit harsh. I took it as his response to playing his old team.

Playing against his old team or not, it's a playoff game. It's more than "just another game"

His response was answering a direct question - actually a series of like questions: "Since this is the Texans, would a victory over them be sweeter vs. some other opponent?" As usual, the press, always looking to start some sh*t, pressed him on the "well, they didn't pay you blah, blah, blah..." aspect. To his credit, he said the situation ended up being a win-win. He essentially said that he got his money and the Texans' offense is chugging along fine with Casey and Vickers. Everyone is happy.

He had already addressed the importance of the game from the playoff aspect.

I thought his responses were rather classy; he gave props to Foster, and he had nothing but respect for our defense - "they're one of the best front sevens we've faced all year" or words to that affect. So he didn't let the press bait him into saying something really stupid.

No reason to crack on him. He didn't bad mouth this team when he found out they wouldn't pay him what he wanted. I don't think he'd hate on this team or its fans when we all got Leach to the Beach and helped him get some acclaim.

This quote came back to haunt DeMeco last year against the Cowboys. You think Vonta would have learned.


Hopefully a similar outcome results in our favor, and just as one-sided.

I heard on the radio that the reason Leach and Pollard downplay this game is because they have a lot of good friends here in Houston.

They both like it here, especially Leach.
Pollard might have matured personally by being here; he becomes more of a professional (attitude-wise.)

Pollard will always be one of my favorite Texans. He was the only guy willing to take time before the Seahawks game and sign stuff for myself and some kids. He was really nice and because of him I will always have a great keepsake from my first Texans game.

He plays great as a very old school SS and it's just too bad (to me, at least) Wade doesn't employ that kind of system, because Bernard is definitely one of the best in that role.

Lol at everyone getting bent out of shape over one of the most over-used cliche's in the book.

I like Vonta a lot, as a player and a person (as you can tell in my sig). I'm not sure what we offered or what he was paid, but I would've loved to have seen him still in a Texans uni.

In the end, he gone. I'll always root for him when we aren't playin them.

*Still trying to figure out which 'Beast' I should make a new sig out of*
