moranis is in for a rude awakening. Who the hell is Flacco going to be throwing to? Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones. Good luck with that.
Smith, Jones, Dickson, Clark, Shiancoe, Stokley, Thompson, Doss
Johnson, Martin, Daniels, Graham, Martin, Posey, Jean
Amendola, Edelman, Fells, Sudfeld, Aiken, Slater, Boyce
Green, Sanu, Gresham, Eifert, Jones, Tate
Wayne, Heward-Bey, Allen, Fleener, Brazill, Hilton
Sure Denver has a great set of receivers, but they are the only top tier AFC team that even goes 3 deep and even their TE's are of a lesser quality and they have a way less than average running game. And I'm not saying Baltimore has the best receiving core of those teams, merely that they are in the same general area as them. Trading Boldin and then losing Pitta to injury were certainly blows, but they will be fine overall.
Colts, Broncos, and Bengals are easily better. Houston is dicey since everything depends on Andre Johnson, who is now 32. The Pats group is worse than the Ravens. The Pats have the luxury of being in an awful division though.
Stokely was a good pickup for the Ravens. He's old, but reliable to move the chains. I hate the Torrey Smith/Jacoby Jones combo. That's just a disaster unless they plan to go an Air Coryell offense.
