Thoughts on Kyle and other notes from 1 Winning Drive today

January 21, 2009 |

One of the more interesting things that I though came out of today’s press conference was the praise that Steve Bisciotti gave to Kyle Boller and what he has meant to this team. Bisciotti talked about how Kyle wanted to be around the team, and how he traveled with the team, and was one of the biggest supporters of Joe Flacco. There are several people in the organization that think the world of Kyle Boller and the character that he has. Like Kyle or not, he has always been a stand up guy and a guy that his teammates like.

I personally would not rule out Kyle coming back here next year. He will obviously want a chance to compete for a starting job in the NFL, but those jobs are sort of few and far between in the NFL now a days at the quarterback position.

Here are some other news and notes from this afternoon :

Drew Forrester has a really good piece as it relates to the news regarding Ray Lewis from today’s press conference.

You can also listen to the audio and see some exclusive video from the press conference on WNST’s website.

– The Ravens will probably announce a new defensive coordinator in the next week or so for the team. It will definitely be done from in house and it appears that the front runners are Chuck Pagano or Vic Fangio.

-Do not expect to see any other coaches from the Ravens defensive staff leave to go join Rex Ryan in New York. Mike Pettine got a huge oppurtunity to become the defensive coordinator of the New York Jets, and the Ravens are happy to see him get such an oppurtunity.

– Coach Harbaugh will soon be flying to Hawaii to coach the AFC in the Pro Bowl, where he will oppose his former co worker and mentor in Andy Reid. Maybe Coach Harbaugh will be able to see some guys up close and personal that he would like to add to his football team next year.
