it is a good signing by the ravens.....but it is dumb to say they wont miss ed reed....he changed the whole game.
Now granted I haven't read through this entire thread, but did anyone say they won't miss Ed Reed? Did anyone say Huff is a better player than Ed? I think the whole basis of the thread is that the Ravens have signed two pretty good players this week.
Of course you didn't read the whole thread. You're busy filling muffin tins and have a short attention span which is why you don't read big boy books, have poor reading comprehension and feature a lower IQ.
Name one NFL team in the cap era that has swapped out large swaths of their D and then were as good or better?
It doesn't exist. Either name the team or move on. So far, no one has raved about these moves can present a team that swapped out 80% of their starting D, in this case a SB winning D, and were as good or better.
I don't care if Baltimore signed Mickey Mouse or Superman, they won't be a better D after losing Ed Reed and Ray Lewis and having no one in the pipelin to take over, short of moving a CB to now Strong Safety (Jimmy Smith), which is an entirely different skill set.
Yes, we have people on this thread claiming Reed and Lewis were hanging by a thread and won't be missed because of their age.
Laughable premise. You can't replace experience, legendary instincts and HOF pedigree with Mike Huff or some other MLB they bring in to pair whoever else they have in mind at MLB.
There aren't many experienced 3-4 MLBs available, and they still aren't set up to play a straight 4-3 either.
Dumervil absolutely sucks as an OLB vs the run, too.
But, they're a "dream team" without Lewis and Reed not there now. LOL
I'm sorry, what's your point? You think this is about the Ravens having a better defense next year? Wow, it's almost as if you are a bulb on a chandelier that is not the brightest, kind of flickering on its way out:(
This is about the salary cap hell Ravens, who weren't supposed to be able to field a team according to you. This is about a Super Bowl Champion that understood they needed to spend to win, yet is still able to add solid players to their roster while replacing older, more expensive ones. That's it. It's not about them having a better, or worse defense next year (because without playing one single game it's pointless to really debate it)....it's about them spending and winning.
Do you seriously think I or anyone else would spend one second researching teams that were "swapping out large swaths" of their defense and returning to be better??? Hahaha! There is no point. None. Why debate with a guy that actually spends half his day complaining about Tom Brady, while praising free agent and draft busts? It's pointless.
