Kyle Boller’s “Journal”


Boller’s Night Out (AthleteNightly.com)Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the NFL Players’ Association website has a special section where their members can keep online journals, or blogs as the Internets commonly refer to them.

Imagine the bigger surprise when I found our favorite quarterback Kyle Boller has been getting his diary on for quite a while now. Check the sample on Boller discussing the offense holding up it’s end of the bargain.

When you have a defense like ours–you turn the ball over, and they hold inside the red zone–that’s big. That says, “Hey, offense, let’s go.” These guys have our back, and we have to hold our side of the bargain, too.

Couple of interesting things with this entry.  One, it seems like turning the ball over was almost a given. Maybe he was referring to “if” the ball gets turned over, but it’s almost automatic now, so go figure.

Second, Boller’s previous update before this one was 2005. Between throwing picks and picking up hot chicks, our boy Boller must not be that into writing down his feelings on how an entire city wants to like him, but just can’t.

And I was so ready to nickname him Kyle Blogger.

    Anyone think Andre will be drafted by the Ravens? I read this on a <a href="http://www.andrewoodson.org">Andre Woodson</a> site. There are rumors swirling that the Ravens may lose franchise left OT Jonathan Ogden to retirement. If that happens, it’s possible that the Ravens may look to the draft to add a high-end tackle, though they landed Maryland OT Jared Gaither in the 2007 Supplemental Draft, and if he has developed as they hoped he would, it’s possible that Gaither may be starting at left offensive tackle in 2008. The Ravens only have one major free agent to be in Terrell Suggs. They could go with a linebacker here, since in this mock the big names (Dan Connor, James Laurinaitis, etc.) would all be on the board. But, with the Ravens having so much difficulty performing on offense, and Steve McNair turning 35 this upcoming February, a quarterback like Woodson would be a great addition to the team. Brian Brohm would be a consideration here as well, but I’d think that Woodson would get the nod over Brohm with his pinpoint accuracy. We shall see. Kyle Boller played a great game against the Patriots two weeks ago, but he came off of that game with a three interception debacle against Indianapolis on Sunday night. I strongly suspect that Boller will not be in the team’s long-term future. An "X Factor" is the presence of Troy Smith on the roster, and how the team evaluates his development will also play a role in what they do in this spot.  Is this possible? I think he would be great for the Ravens.
