Homerism aside. Pick a team that has made the playoffs a lot recently vs a team who hasnt. Easy pick.

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.

I don't know that he's saying the locker room was bad here so much as saying it was better in Baltimore.

Exactly, when you have a leaders like Ray Lewis and Ed Reed and you've went to the playoffs for five consecutive seasons. I mean it's a easy choice if you're not a Panthers fan.
