    Exactly!! Doss have seen in game action much more last season and was dropping balls, i remember him getting targeted back to back on redzone drive and drop both LQW made some crucial in game catches last year one against the steelers he seen less reps that marshmellow doss reps or not as a wideout u still gotta catch the ball.

    Because Streeter has shown anything?

    At least Doss has game time experience.

    Streeter will be lucky to make the team this year. Clearly you haven't been paying attention to camp notes.

    Re: Ravens are signing Brandon Stokely

    I feel this is another example of fans judging way to early. I really dont get it. Last year everybody was complaining about ellerbe getting a tender and he should have been cut. Glad we cut the possible mvp of the D for that meager 2m salary he wasnt worth. I really hope Doss strings some plays together gains the confidence hes lacking and makes a lot of people eat crow.

    The team signed Stokley, not the fans. I've been getting flamed ( as well as some others like 21215, Trap, Haloti, bmorecareful to name a few) for my concern about the WR position since the moment the rumors about us cutting Boldin started. The typical response was Ozzie believes in these guys so they will step up...and since he never brought in anyone else, these guys were showing they could do the job. Well, it looks like they finally had seen enough. If anyone is suddenly panicking, it's Ozzie for making this move this late in the process.

    This concern is based off of WAY more than a preseason game. Other than Thompson, these guys have participated in at least 9 preseason games and 32 regular season games. They have had 2 and a half months of intense training camp practices...3 years of minicamps.

    I don't see anybody panicking about the team or our season, just frustration that the team placed so much faith in these guys and none of them have come through. No team is perfect...we certainly weren't perfect last year. We'll see how this season goes, it's up to the coaches to use what we have to make it work and Stokley is a good piece to add at this stage.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Re: Ravens are signing Brandon Stokely

    Doesn't hurt to add depth, and Stokely provides that.

    Stokely's old, but Caldwell knows how to use him, so he should know which route to run when a play is called, at least. Still not sure I can say the same for the 3d-6th Wrs on the roster. If nothing else he helps patch up the gaps a little bit while the team dumps even more time into getting this flotilla of crap to show some signs of life.
    No one likes us, and we don't care.

    When they sign Stokely it showed all we needed to know, you have a bunch of young guys who haven't stepped up. 37yr old slot guy who can barely stay healthy yea thats the Fo showing confidence alright

    BTW, the preseason game was 3 days ago and while there was a little frustration noted immediately after the game, it didn't blow up until this signing and this thread.

    So if there is a ground zero for some fans that are realizing that these WR's aren't getting it done in the teams opinion, it's this Stokley signing...not the preseason game.

    54 receptions and 5 TDs last season is barely staying healthy?

    Re: Ravens are signing Brandon Stokely

    I will say this about Ozzie. How many times have you rooted for a team, and "This guy sucks" or "we really need a new (insert position here) or "we just need one more pitcher"


    At least when I say this about the Ravens it seems like Ozzie is always a step ahead.

    I hope I am wrong and one or more of these guys come through--but I am glad I follow a team that sees the same weaknesses we all see, and follows up and tries to fix them.

    I think "depth" is a very generous way to try to frame this. I think that in order for there to be depth, there actually has to be something there in the first place. I'm not even seeing that, so I don't think Stokley provides depth; I think he provides substance.
