Ravens team unity was the deciding factor for Jacoby Jones over Panthers

Recommended Posts



No leaders since Jake and Minter. Jon Beason is close. Luke will be the one.

What's your idea of a leader? You cannot force feed leadership. Flaco is the QB but you can tell he's more than happy letting a Vet like Ray lead the Ravens. I don't think this team lack leadership. It's just a matter of asking oneself, who spirit is leading this team?

Remember, every team breathes their own culture. No outsider nor rookie can realy change a culture. Those within who breathe that continuous culture has to want to change.

This team was took its slumps in the past but I feel we are rising. By the way, do y'all remember that season where brad Hoover was being interviewed and he was like its a shame that some players don't really care?

“They were kind of decided of Brandon LaFell” as the second wideout, Jones said. “He played pretty well. They had a returner (Kealoha Pilares). And they had a guy (Joe Adams) they drafted. I was looking at that, too.”

Sounds like the team locker room unity thing was the PC way of saying, "I got more of a chance to be on SportsCenter returning punts and kicks AND being the #3 receiver in Baltimore than just being the #3 receiver in Carolina. Big plays=Big payday$$$ on my next contract."

So Beason's not a leader, but Luke's going to be one?

And Jones made the right choice choosing the Ravens over us. All you have to do is look at where each team is at now.

Yeah, I seen that and I could see him being on our team this year sitting down during special teams. Meanwhile, Pilares and Adams continue to have the underwhelming seasons they had. It took Ron 13 weeks into the season before seeing a 7th round safety was better than both guys in front of him. He would have been wasted here.

Let me choose between the team that hasn't made the playoffs since 2008, or the team that makes the playoffs every year. I'll say it was because of "team unity"

also at the time it probably looked like the ravens were a better bet for him to meet escalator clauses.

like he said, we'd just drafted Joe Adams, and had he'd probably have been the fourth/fifth receiving option.
