Is This It?

Talked to some people from the Ravens and they are trying to get packed up and out of here. Heard both coaches are totally cool with calling this thing and looks like most people are either stuck in the parking lot or jammed up on 95 right now, so not sure who would actually stick around if they resume play, save for the drunkest of the drunk.

But it's up to the Commish in NY to make a final call on this one. We'll see which way Rockin' Roger goes.

Too bad for Palmer. I was sort of looking forward to seeing him get a shot.

Anthony Trucks, an undrafted free agent, who is most likely to be cut, but could possibly end up as a back up on special teams, blew by Gaither and delivered a crushing hit on Kyle Boller that led to the winning touchdown. Anthony Trucks is not known as a pass rushing linebacker. The Ravens gave up a 5th Round PICK in the 2008 draft for Gaither, who was declared ineligible for the draft because of poor grades.

One NFL Executive I've spoken to said, "Gaither has the size you dream about to be a left tackle, but, he is very slow off the ball and has no football intelligence. No one would put him in the lineup yet."

Jason,

Trucks won't be cut. You can see that. Williams has mentioned him on more than one occasion during press briefings.

Its Khary Campbell first.

I live in South Florida and cannot wait for opening day. So many Dolphin fans down here who are quite obnoxious. I remind them frequently of our success over them (ala Riggo off left tacke on 4th and 1 to lock up our 1st superbowl) which usually shuts them right up!

Now they are talking trash about the opener. If we win one game all year, please let it be this one or I may have to relocate.

I disagree with Stop's second point ... the risk of re-injury to a top player, whether its CP, Springs, Washington, or whoever is just not feeling 100% means that keeping a player out of an exhibition game is just smart coaching, as in chapter one titled "duh".

'Sween, I agree and stand corrected. All I am saying is that we can't seem to make up our minds whether he is healthy and ready to go or not. If he is healthy, he should take some snaps--not a lot but enough to get his feet wet again. If he is not, then we can't claim he will be in top from and ready to go. Right now and until I see it otherwise, I don't think he is the RB that showed up in 2005. Again, I hope I am wrong.
