Quick Analysis of the Ravens WR corps



Department of Redundancy Department

Much has been made about the Ravens recent acquisition of T J Houshmanzdadeh, on top of their prior signing of Anquan Boldin.  But I don't think the Ravens are doing Joe Flacco any favors here. Consider their top 3 receivers and their attributes:

Receiver #1:  Anquan Boldin is a very good receiver who gets open, makes the tough catch and can get yards afterwards.  However, he is not a deep threat or a playmaker.  He is 30. 

Receiveer #2: Derrick Mason is a good receiver who gets open, makes the tough catch and can get yards afterwards.  However, he is not a deep threat or a playmaker.   He is 36.

Receiver #3:  T J Houshmanzdzadeh is a good receiver who gets open, makes the tough catch and can get yards afterwards.  However, he is not a deep threat or a playmaker.   He will be 33 this month.

Flacco has 3 solid receivers there.  But Flacco has a cannon for an arm.  That arm will largely go to waste with a short to intermediate passsing game.   The only deep threat on their roster (Donte Stallworth) is out with a serious foot injury.   The Ravens have no deep threat.  What Flacco needs is a Mike Wallace or even an Emmanuel Sanders. I think that teams will be able to cheat their safeties with impunity.  Even their drafted rookie (David Reed) is not a speedster.  What do you think?
