    What makes the Ravens d line so good is the rotation of young and older players. Ozzie always finds guys in the draft that fits the system where they're able to produce.

    Let the younger players gain experience by playing situational downs, and give the veterans a breather and fresh legs late in games.

    Did you read the article? Lots of counter-intuitive information there......

    Yeah. The Ravens wouldn't be last in that category if they still had Ngata. He was the only "star" on the line that was getting paid the big bucks. Typically the Ravens don't resign DL after their rookie contracts because they'll be highly valued in free agency. The Ravens don't sweat it because they always find replacements in the draft or have the next man up to produce.

    It should also be noted that defensive players rarely put up better (or even similar) numbers on another team when the leave the Ravens.

    The Ravens have several position groups that are like that. One maybe two vets and the rest are in their rookie contracts. RB, WR, TE, and DL. The money is in QB, OL, LB, and CB's.

    Very true, and that is an indication that Ozzie and co. know what they are doing and our system is what makes
    most of these players excel at their position....Ngata may still do pretty well but he was an exceptional player...
    And even that is yet to be seen...

    Ozzie has been phenomenal as GM. He needs to retire!

    I think you'd be better off without Oz than we'd be without Belichick.....

    Fortunately, we have Eric DeCosta waiting in the wings. I don't know if he will be able to fully replace Oz but he's there waiting so Baltimore may be around at the top for a long time.

    Why Eric DeCosta Stays With Ravens
