However what I'm ready Sparage welcome a countdown to kick off brought you by Verizon official wireless service provider of the NFL. Today we're talking about the Ravens with Edley of the Baltimore Sun and Eddie Ravens defense. Pretty banged up right now we have even played a regular season game yet. Cornerback Domonique Foxworth towards ACL adopt this season. Pro Bowl safety Ed -- could miss the entire pre season maybe part of the regular season as well. How concerned -- the Ravens about the secondary. I think there's a lot of concern the Sosa among the coaches and at the front office sitting. Yeah this was an area that was going to be a question. Even if thought I think our first then Hedrick were healthy because it gives it secondary position it was still missing. Fabian Washington and gregarious -- put the from the torrent. The -- in the mean. -- -- -- mr. process of recovery. -- you watching and it has returned he expects to start -- -- Washington Redskins but. There is Webb is still on the teams that physical physically unable to perform list. You know he may not come back until maybe it would into the -- -- so. It certainly hit situations that the team is monitoring Internet that. Yes they have sort of -- out -- to try to see if there's the potential trade out there for a starting caliber quarterback but. In this -- it's kind of hard to find and in the you know the thing is that -- department have to give -- player. Maybe someone of that caliber of that was McKee you or Mark Clayton -- Antoine Carr -- -- outside linebacker at. They didn't find someone who. -- me hat means one of those players for their team but it's certainly an area that team is looking into. So a lot of questions. On defense right now on offense the Ravens acquired wide receivers Anquan Boldin and Donte' Stallworth. What are these two guys bring the table. Army they bring a lot of experience they bring a lot of veteran leadership and seems lately they've really fit in quite well. With the flyers series they have right now and you know Anquan Boldin. She's appease certain. Didn't well in the entire media me he looks faster than we thought he with his hands are much better than we thought it where. Finishing. He's really devote to report we Joe Flacco and the doctor Stallworth. Brings the kind of speed on the outside that this team has lacked for years and so. I'm liking the addition of both Anquan Boldin doctor Stallworth. Has been having huge benefit for Joe Flacco and assault and -- You know I think -- I'm having those kind of playmakers on the outside. That might open up things -- ability -- -- -- I'd like hockey particularly outside for a -- like ray Reitz. So Flacco obviously happy to have those two guys. On offense other seems to be an issue though at right tackle position Jared Gaither missed the first week -- conditioning and now he's hurt. But he should start at right tackle for the Ravens with a season starts. Well at this point I don't know I would include Cherokee there in that in the conversation. You know he's. In diapers the parents back that's calling back spasm. That -- timetable for his return. The team that fought that colonial cousins in the next. To fill that void -- has. He suffered a headache. -- opposite field. Yesterday and he's also coming back from. Surgery during offseason through -- not interest citrus throw it to -- exactly 100% right now either. When you look society appreciating game right now. They got that they have penciled in as starters Tony ball who's you know I think it three or four year better. Formally at the Green Bay Packers he's been with -- now for many years so. Yeah he's he's a guy who who can fill in. But the question -- holes and hold up -- sixteen games if that is indeed what happens but. I think it certainly in the area where -- little love to have Jerry it to come back sooner rather than later. Obviously finally Baltimore seems to be the trendy. Super Bowl pick in the AFC so does that make this a championship or bust here for the Ravens. All you certainly I think every king and has championship aspirations that. With this team particularly you know there there are star players are. Tend to be on the older side -- ray Lewis and Ed Reed and triple pride and Derrick Mason and met her in these are guys -- Know that that would have boxing slowly closing -- Yeah it -- it. Charlie -- that as one of the strongest teams in recent memory and so. I think there's quite a lot of pressure so actually -- internally for his team to succeed and -- that you poacher. And we appreciate you being -- thanks so much for coming up. That's good for this edition of countdown to kickoff brought you by Verizon. The official wireless service provider of the NFL.
