Jason Cole joined Ed & Steve to talk about the Ravens off-season.
I was looking at the Ravens salary cap and I think one of the big issues facing the team is that their highest paid players underperformed this year. Every single one of them.
It’s an odd feeling for the Baltimore Ravens. They aren’t playing football in January. They have done so every year since John Harbaugh took over as head coach.

The Ravens took a huge hit to their playoffs aspirations on Sunday when they lost to New England. Now Baltimore will face off against the newly crowned division champs in a game that they must win in order to continue their season. It’s truly win or go home for the Baltimore Ravens.
Joe Flacco’s knee is problematic for the Ravens. With Flacco banged up, the passing game is a concern for Baltimore heading into its critical regular season finale in Cincinnati.
The Ravens may not make the playoffs in 2013. After losing to the Patriots on Sunday, Baltimore no longer controls their destiny. They’ll need some help to get in to the playoffs. But they also need to win to have any kind of shot.
