    Good move by Baltimore, but I still think that defense will not be the same next year, lost alot of leadership.

    This makes Denver weaker so there is a silver lining in this.

    All the talk of Baltimore's implosion is totally over-stated, imo. Dumerville is undoubtedly an upgrade over Kreuger. If they can find a MLB, they'll be ok.

    Let me guess. You didn't watch him play at all this past season and are assume he's great because of his sack totals a couple years ago when no one knew about him.

    He is a massive liability against the run. Like, if Tom Brady were to play DT and you compared him to Wilfork, that is what the disparity is like between Dumervil and Ninkovich (who in himself is pretty piss poor against the run).


    Well maybe not that bad, but he was awful last year. Just another big name with little substance.

    Now you see why there are franchises like the Ravens and franchises like the Browns.

    Ravens are getting a better player for less. Suggs, Ngata, Dumervil, Webb ... I wouldn't underestimate that D.

    i think elvis is past his prime, i'm not gonna say he's like simeon rice team hopping past his prime, but i think freeney would actually work out better for denver if they get him.

    i think elvis will miss von miller more than he thinks

    Works for me, especially at those numbers.

    And with Denver going after Freeney, hopefully that means Abraham will sign here.

    And another MLB, two starting safeties, a center and a #2 CB and someone to replace Boldin.

    Kruger signed for 5/40 mill so do you think Kruger is a better player than Dumervil?

    That's obnoxious logic. No team, in the free-agency era, can field a team without multiple, noticeable holes.

    Baltimore? The D really isn't that bad, particularly the front-7, aside from MLB...

    You do? They still have gaping holes in half their defense. This move puts last years #1 on the bench and leave nothing at ILB or S. Possibly their 4 most effective players on defense last year are gone with no replacement.
    The are also down a starting Lt and #1 WR.
    They were 10-6 last year, it would be a miracle to get back to it.

    There's nothing wrong with the logic at all. They have a large number of quality starters to replace, and that's a tall order for any team.

    Let's see, they lost 6 defensive players, all who started at some point in the season, 3 LB, 2 Safeties and 1 corner. Of their two remaining inside LBs, one is 37 years old. They still have plenty of issues......

    They were terrible when Lewis was out, and not exactly dominating in the playoffs other than against us.
    They have no one at ILB or S. They were not a real good D last year and lost more than half their players, replacing one.

    Love it. I am actually making popcorn right now in hopes of a 6th starter lost. Want some?

    It sounded like you were actually saying you like it from a Ravens viewpoint rather than liking it because you are a Patsfan and they have been decimated.

    Dumervil isn't going to make the Ravens two or three wins better. In fact I seriously doubt they win 10 games this year unless their schedule is really weak.

    They were a team that won on emotion last year (Torrey Smith's brother, Art Modell dying, and Ray Ray retiring). They lost their best WR (who was average), a very good guard, and six starters on defense. Dumervil doesn't replace all that.

    Dumervil is a nice pick up, but the Ravens have a lot of holes to fill.
