We are going to lose some good players in free agency like we do every year. I'm not worried about it because Ozzie will take the comp. picks and restock the team like he always does.

Ellerby needs to stay. He has played very well this year.

I'd like to see Reed stay, but he's been making noise about getting more money for a while now. I also think that his play has slipped in the last couple of years. IMO right now his name is bigger than his on field production. He is a leader, but you still have Suggs and Ngata left behind to fill that role. I have a feeling he goes and gets paid somewhere else.

I hope that Cary Williams gets a fat contract from someone else.

Kruger is getting paid somewhere else. It sucks too because I worry about the pass rush without him. It's too bad that Sergio Kindle was such an amazing bust.

I agree that Kemoeatu probably stays. He'll be cheap and the coaching staff seems to like him. They need to look at a DT and/or MLB early in the draft though.

Hopefully Boldin and Jacoby Jones take extensions and restructure their deals for next year.

Hopefully they get another year out of McKinnie as well. I don't trust McKinnie though. He's old and not exactly driven when it comes to football. There needs to be a plan B behind him if they bring him back. I'd like a LT in the draft if someone good drops, but we have bigger pressing needs.

Birk is gone as well, so I'm assuming they grab a FA Center for insurance just in case Gradkowski can't handle the starting job.

My feelings for the Crows aside, watching the parade on the internet I am impressed with the sheer number of people that have come out for this parade. Parade route is packed, with people close to getting run over by the military monster trucks the Crows players are riding on, but M&T is packed. Every seat filled and the field is packed with standing room only people. WJZ says 80,000 in the stadium easy. Impressive considering the stadium holds like 65,000 just in the seats.

Ray Ray has his own Hummer, of course, and now some fools are storming the Hummer to get a picture of him. Crowd control is breaking down. Crazy.

Parade was pretty crazy. I'm a life-time Redskins fan but a friend of mine is a diehard Ravens fan, so we made the 10 hour drive up Monday night and it was well worth it. Standing on the field watching Ray Lewis do his dance with the Lombardi trophy is something I'll never forget.

Been a Ravens fan since their inception and it was awesome.

Trying to go out after was pretty crazy. Every place was either packed to the brim, or closed because the owners & employees were at the festivities.

I watched the Super Bowl game in a Federal Hill bar. And that was something I'll never forget. Celebrating the great plays and eventaul win with complete strangers. Highfiving, laughing and hooting and hollering down the street, the mob of happy people, Baltimore's finest in choppers and on horses, horns beeping and people just super happy.

We left town on Monday but I guess in retrospect, and to complete the experience, it would have been cool to see the parade.

I'm an Eagles fan but was at a Ravens' game earlier in the year so we decided to go to Inner Harbor for the Super Bowl.

Saunders is awful and better suited for Safeco than Camden Yards.

**** a petty arse SI jinx or the added pressure created by being everyone's pick to represent the NL in the Series, how about a comparison between our boys and one of the greatest teams ever assembled!?

Tough loss for the Wiz, but Beal looks like a keeper.

Beal's going to be terrific, John Wall's jumper on the other hand...not so much.
