Prokection: Shazor, Reed, Smoot, and McAllister form the best secondary in the league, the Ravens finish in the top 3 in pass defense and top 5 for overall defense. Bill Swancutt, Anthony Weaver, and Terrell Suggs put up 25+ sacks. Peter Boulware has his first healthy season and returns to form. Derrick Mason ignites Kyle Boller and thus ignites the Ravens passing game. Mason finishes the season with 70catches for 1100 yards and 7TDs. Boller throws for 3200 yards and 20 TDs with only 10 INTs(good for Boller's standards) Jamal Lewis returns to form with a rejuvinated Oline and rushes for 1400yards and 12 scores. Ravens finish 11-5 and challenge the steelers for the division crown.

**Did this mostly out of boredom(and fun) without a lot of serious thought, but it turned out alright. Feel free to comment.

Looks good, and realistic off-season moves.

David Terrell on a one year contract mightn't be too bad but I would sign someone more proven.

The draft picks are very solid, although I think you could get a better safety prospect a little lower in James Butler. I think he's an ideal fit for the Ravens alongside Ed Reed, and I really hope we get him!! Adam Terry and Logan Mankins were nice picks.

I think Suggs could get between 15 -20 sacks himself. He'll have a massive year along with Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, and all three will be in contention for Defensive Player of the Year.

I don't know Boller will throw 20 TD with only 10 INTs, and Jamal Lewis mightn’t find the end zone that many times, but hopefully that will be because of guys like Mason, Heap and Moore are in there more often.

I think we'll be up there in the AFC North and I'm looking forward to clashes with the Steelers (especially Ben Roethlisberger versus Ed Reed and our Secondary).

yea your probly right about Boller and Lewis now that i look at it. a little bit of wishful thinking taking over there. I i think 9 or10 TDs for Jamal and 16-18 with 11-13 INTs for Bolller might be more likely

Jamal could get 12 rushing TDs. I just think we might be a little more balanced, and you don't know whether his off-season will have any affect on him or not. Chester Taylor might be a big factor again, I hope we re-sign him.

I think you will see closer to 1800yds for Jamal Lewis this season. He missed 5 games I think, had off the field issues (court appearance) and still the guy put up 1000yd+ season. A return to form and with no off the field issues will easily see a 1800yd season. Easily!
