What if we did offer T.J. and he just didn't want to come here?

Would everyone still be blasting our front office? I'm just curious, because a lot of people act like T.J. had no personal preference as to where he wanted to go? Maybe Baltimore seemed more lucrative to him? I think the price that Baltimore paid for T.J. was a steal, but whose to say he would've taken the same deal here? I hate to say it, but it doesn't take a genius to see that Baltimore has a more appealing team in terms of winning a Superbowl THIS year. Plus, they're battling for an AFC North championship and the top contenders look to be his former team.

It just seems to me that T.J. saw a better opportunity for himself in Baltimore over any other franchise. I'm sure even if we did not offer him that our front office was atleast aware of the situation at hand, and I'm sure they evaluated it.

Many experts are predicting us to go to the SB this season. This is a team on the rise, with a lot of young, solid talent. There is no reason he would not have wanted to come here, other than money.

Many experts are predicting Baltimore to go to the Superbowl team this year. They are a young team on the rise on both sides of the ball, with a pretty good playoff history. They have one of the smartest front offices in the leagues, and have consistently built their team up with solid draft picks. I'm not trying to show more love to them over us, but I think Baltimore is in a much better situation than the Falcons in terms of bring home a Lombardi this year with or without T.J. Houshmandzadeh. Also, while we have a lot of potential, we also dealt with a lot of injuries on some key players last year, it's really hard to predict how a team can recover from something like that. So, with that I think Baltimore still stands as a more appealing team to someone like T.J.

I've been making this argument all morning with no success. People are acting like the Falcons are the ones that decide where TJ goes. This is the NFL, not madden.

Yeah, but then TJ read our MB and saw posts from Jedi & assumed we'd be going 3-13 and every minor injury any player on this team has immediately turns into a career ender, so he decided Baltimore would be the place to go.

the Ravens have always been my favorite AFC team, with that being said.....

it is going to be a GREAT year for em, but the Ravens defense has a LOT more question marks this year than in a LONG time. Foxy went down, Ed Reed (soul of the secondary) is out for 1/2 the season(maybe) as well as the LB corp getting older. Offense might have to carry the defense this year.

Honestly, they are right there in the same place as our Falcons - tons of potential but all depending on a few key players to RISE UP
