Hey All! I'm new around here so please bear with me as I try to learn how things work around here, lol.
BaltimoreRavens.com reports that Anquan Boldin commented that the Ravens should be in good shape should there be a work stoppage due to CBA talks. He's hopeful that an agreement will be reached but given the low turnover of coaching staff and players the Ravens have an edge. Now that sounds great and all and I think highly of my team but could we really be prepared in a matter of weeks, without OTAs, training camp, minicamp, etc.? That means relying on players individually prepping and staying in the best playing condition on their own. I would like to think that the Ravens have some of the most disciplined players in the NFL but they have a lot of resources available to them at 1 Winning Drive that they will no longer have access to.
Which leads me to my other area of concern, what about those player-led workouts that are being proposed by various players, including Michael Vick and Eric Berry. How likely is that to happen? I think it's a great idea but it seems inevitable that there will be a whistle-blower/complainer and nothing will come of it or perhaps very little. I want to be optimistic, I really do, but I'm concerned. Let's hope something comes of this week-long extension. What say you?
