Found March 24, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:

Every NFL player should have learned two years ago that it isn’t smart to refer to your team as a “dream team” after Vince Young claimed the Eagles were such. Arthur Jones of the Baltimore Ravens clearly doesn’t agree with me.  After the Ravens signed Elvis Dumervil today, Jones told Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun that they’re like a “dream team in the making.” Arthur Jones on Elvis Dumervil addition: ‘That’s awesome. It’s like a dream team in the making. I can’t wait until we all get together.’ — Aaron Wilson (@RavensInsider) March 24, 2013 I hope Mr. Jones realizes that his team has two glaring holes at the safety position as well as at wide receiver and left tackle now that Anquan Boldin, Ed Reed, Bernard Pollard, and Bryant McKinnie at no longer on the team. Of course you can also bring up the losses of Ray Lewis, Dannell Ellerbe, and Paul Kruger, but I believe Dumervil’s arrival negates those departures.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();

  • I like the Ravens for a lot of reasons this next season, but "Dream Team" is way too premature, and even a stupid remark. JOnes is part of the crowd that gets all full of themselves, and I guess that goes with the turf now-a-days, but it would be nice if they didn't keep popping off.
  • I see nothing wrong with the comment. Everybody dreams of being on a Super Bowl team and every fan loves to dream of being a fan of a Super Bowl team.
  • I like his high hopes and mine after all of the departures. I love Ravens football. But I wouldn't go as far as dream team. Since they let Ed Reed go, they could have signed Boldin. He was worth 6 mil a year. That's what other receivers are getting.
