Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

April 28, 2009 | Glenn Clark

Do the Ravens have a plan for the wide receiver position?

I don’t know.

I’m baffled by the Ravens’ decisions at their biggest position of need; and I’m the biggest Derrick Mason fan on the face of the planet. In fact, I thought he was the MVP of the team last season.

If the Ravens go into the season with the same group of Wide Receivers, I just cannot consider them a Super Bowl contender.

But there’s plenty of time.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say…..
