Patrick Willis only had .5 of a sack so i guess JJ is a better player than him? context is everything when comparing players.

    He didn't do anything vs us.

    I'm just saying as others, he went the same as so many others that left the system. Not so hot.

    But not this year, not with just 1.5 sacks.

    I saw on a Texans board that they mostly are happy that their former Texans got rings. THe funniest line I saw was something like: " Baltimore gets the most out of Jacoby because they have a QB that makes passes look like punts and those are the only things he can catch."

    I gotta say after ours, the Texans are quickly becoming my second favorite fan base.

    That's actually pretty hilarious.

    It was a great draft so far, KO is ALL PRO material at G, and Peirce is a very good back (better than Rice IMO). Wait and see on the backside of the draft as they develop. Tyson was good value as a wave player as a 7th rounder, IMO.

    Texans seem pretty fair. That line is basically dead accurate. He catches them just like a punt.

    The Ravens need to keep Ted Monachino on staff to make sure Upshaw develops. That guy did wonders for Suggs.
    After 5 years of early exits, the journey is finally complete.

    I love JOe's punts-lol. They work for us. We're the champs and beat Houston twice last year and won the SB
    after they killed us this year while they watched their guys win it for us.

    Leach made a couple of big catches when they shut down Rice. They just can't shut down everyone not to
    mention his usual blowing people away blocking.

    Fun fact of the day: Courtney Upshaw won a BCS title & Super Bowl back to back in the same stadium.

    Yea, I bet Hightower is pissed now that Bellicheat snuck in front of Ozzie to get him or he would have the back to back
    titles. He had a better rookie year with a few more sacks and tackles but he played more, I think.

    Does anyone still want Hightower? A lot of us were upset. I was devastated. A lot of people said after that draft that Upshaw was better and the brains of that defense. He was projected higher but dropped on the boards.
