It’s very obvious why the apparently-finished Joe Flacco deal is good for the Ravens. They’ve got their starting quarterback in place for what’s rumored to be about six years after winning a Super Bowl title.

But finishing this deal is good in several ways and for everyone. The two sides were on the verge of the Ravens having to slap a franchise tag on Flacco. If they still couldn’t finish the job on this, it would be an issue or question that would hang over everyone’s head until the deal did get done.

And that could be a bad thing.

There’s no question it would be a negative. In today’s NFL, situations like this happen with deals on regular basis, and they’re not good. Flacco and the Ravens would have to answer regular questions about why they couldn’t finish the deal, did he still want to play here, how much money he wanted, etc. etc.

That would just hang over the team until they finally got a contract finished. Flacco showed he was willing to wait to get the numbers he believed he wanted.

No question that this was a good deal all around. And, the fact that Flacco apparently made it clear that he didn't want his deal to cost other players their jobs speaks volumes about the man's character! All the other personnel who may be endangered species due to "cap" and/or free agency are relatively interchangeable, particularly on defense where the Ravens proved they could win a Super Bowl without having to dominate on defense. As long as the offense stays in tact and continues to be prolific in the pass happy NFL, they should be competitive for many years to come......

Top two in my opinion is Ellerbe and McKinny. We need not to pu tOher on the Left side and KO at tackle again. When big boy played, jow had protection and we rocked. We also need as much beef on both sides of Gino to help young lion out! Ellerbe is key. We can draft a DT in the first round, A DE or OLB in the second, Saftey in the third and MLB in 3rd or fourth depending on our compensatory pick situation. That way we stay young on D with Sizzle and Ngata and Ellerbe as the vet leadership.
