Former Poly High star, Antonio Freeman, joins Bob & Steve to talk about the chances of a Ravens to repeat next year as Super Bowl Champions. He gives his keys to staying focused and enjoying the “taste of victory.” He also explains that it’s different when a team is expected to be in the big game and when a team just “figures it out” in week 15/16 and makes a great run in the playoffs.
‘Buttons’ talks about falling 7 points short of being back-to-back champs. How they didn’t take the Broncos too lightly but at the same time they were confident and expected to win.
Listen to the interview here:
Free agency is another matter of discussion starting to come up now that the season is over. Who do we keep? Who can we afford to let go? What receivers are expendable and who can you not afford to let go?
Anquan Boldin was the leading receiver. Torrey Smith is young and possibly the future. Jacoby Jones is amazing in the return game but his season numbers as a receiver weren’t that impressive over all. As far a running backs go, are Ray Rice or Bernard Pierce the same without Vonta Leach blocking for them?
Essentially it turns into a numbers game and a business at this point in the year. Emotional attachment has to be put on the back burner, as hard as it would be to see some of our players go, especially after such a successful, emotionally driven season.
