re: NFL Offseason: DRAFT TODAY (and all through the weekend)
Not sure why people are going crazy over the Ravens "losing" Ellerbe, Pollard, and Kruger. Ellerbe and Kruger weren't consistent and are easily replaced in the draft. Pollard was terrible in coverage.
The dolphins way overpaid Ellerbe, that's hilarious to me. Linebackers always flourish under the Baltimore system and then they get a big contract elsewhere and way under-perform.
Losing Reed will suck on an emotional level, but let's face it, he has maybe one good year left, and he was already slipping quite a bit.
Losing Boldin sucked but it was inevitable. We didn't trade him for a 6th round draft pick, we managed to get a 6th round draft pick as we lost him. The alternative was losing him and getting nothing.
I'm not hitting any panic buttons until I see where we're at after free agency and the draft.
