He should have done everything he could to stay on the Jets the first time. Oh wait it was that $$ thing. Boller is no baller and the Ravens keep getting older. The Texans are as much a contender as they are.

With Porter resigning with Oakland, and with the Vikes new owner saying he won't trade Moss, Coles could very well be the top free agent receiver along with Derek Mason. He won't come to any team cheap if he gets cut, and until March 2nd the Redskins are trying to arrange a trade. The Ravens seem to be eager to snatch up a quality WR, and if they can't trade for Moss they'll probably set their sights on Coles or Mason.

The Ravens are the 3rd youngest team in the NFL and we are not as close as the Ravens to becoming a legitimate contender. Take off your homer goggles.

I don't think receiver is much of a high priority need. Maybe some would say TE is if that Joppru (sp?) doesn't work out.

And to be honest I like Mason better. I think the guy is just really talented and between Coles and Mason I'd pick Mason.

Good point, I'm definitely sure the Ravens will pursue Mason strongly, plus they would also have the cap room to pursue Burress also if he too becomes a UFA. If they do sign Mason, I wonder if they will still look to draft a WR in the first round

That said - AJ is a great receiver also - dont get me wrong, but Competition for him at his level I think would make him a better player - not the other way around. How great would the options be if you have 2 Pro bowlers on the field? It would be real nice to have a Coles / Johnson combo on the field much like the Irvin Harper comboy combo was when they made their SB runs. Having 2 great receivers on a team gives the offense options and keeps the defense pinned back into more coverage and that will help give David more time to pass. Eventually one of the 2 will get open. With the Cover 2 most teams are using now on defense, Quick hitting hitches, short outs, curls, slants ie: a west coast style offense or run and gun would need to be mixed in to the current Run 60 pass 40 mix they have going to use the talent the way it should be and give us the cahnce to be a more passing team which caters to David's style moe. Then you also have Gaffney and Miller and DD too to think about. So many weapons - so many options. The thing is it's on Palmer to use the weapons if he gets them and thats where an offensive shift in playcalling would be necessary. IMO if you Mix in a dose of DD and 2 pro bowl receivers and you will see a huge difference in the Offenses production numbers.

my 2 yards
This is also a good point, but I think we could find a good WR to compliment Andre in the draft. Like how the Colts drafted Wayne to compliment Harrison so Harrison won't see that many double teams or like how Denver drafted Lelie so Smith won't see so many double teams.

I'd read conflicting reports that Randy Moss might be traded also; adding another quality receiver to be had by some team. Although his conduct might turn some off I suppose but I imagine there would be plenty of interest irregardless.

Ray - 29

I don't see much of a problem there.

Any team that signs him should make it a condition of the signing that he have surgery on it before the season starts. Otherwise, he'll be relying on quick-fix cortisone shots to the toe to make it through the season and that might kill the pain prior to/during a game but it won't help the toe out. Any stress that toe absorbs will only exacerbate the arthritic bone and increase the rate of its disintegration. If he has surgery on it right now, there'll be enough time before the season starts for it to heal.
Uhhh yeah, I was about to say the same thing... about the...stress, bone, arthritic, disintegration.....ok im done.

Doesn't everybody know about Coles' toe. Get with the program DC ROCK or do we need to start quizzing the board about AJ's left big toe?
