    I had to register as the washington post to show you guys this one, so be thankful. [​IMG] Hopefully you won't have to as well.

    Its not perfect; it demeans his appearance while hyping the Ravens' black defenders. However, the Raven players themselves are nothing but complimentary about his skill.

    Cool. The D-line is black dominated. but statistically whites are stronger.

    I'm glad the players and coaches finally gave him some credit. The reporter doesn't with that opening line, but any lineman capable of playing tight end and fullback is surely "athletic," not to mention his freaky strength.

    Wow.

    Great article.

    Another guy who 'would never play a down in the NFL' according to all the caste system scouts and coaches who first watched him play.

    But not only does he play, he obviously seems capable of playing several positions, not just defensive tackle.

    I wonder how many other Kelly Greggs are sitting at home reading this article instead of playing in the NFL because of the caste system?

    Kelly Gregg got axed! (rw.com)

    Ravens informed NT Kelly Gregg of his release.

    The move was made to clear $3.5 million in salary, but Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun speculates that Gregg could re-sign for a one- or two-year deal worth $1-2 million this season. The Ravens definitely want him back for a rotational role. Now 34, Gregg is going to lose his starting job to Terrence Cody

    Thats to bad about Gregg. He was a really good player over the last 9 years for the Ravens. I doubt Cody will be able to do what Gregg did for all those years all the while doing it without much recognition. They might resign him to a 1-2 year deal.

    I would be surprised if Cody actually came into training camp in shape.

    Wow. I don't watch the Ravens much, but I'd heard so much complimentary about Gregg that this is a surprise even with the caste system.

    That's really funny! As if "Mount Cody" will ever be half the DT that Gregg is/was. Cody will join the really, really long list of colossal black busts.

    Didn't know he was gone. Would have been nice if someone picked Kelly up. He has to be better than Cody, who is a backup at best.

    He's starting for Kansas City. The post above yours was from a spammer and has been deleted.

    Gregg in his prime was a top 3 NT. I think age and injuries have caught up to him, yet he is still better than most defensive tackles out there, some of these super hyped guys that came out a few years ago. Its not easy carrying 310 pounds on a 6 foot frame, yet he manages to do it without a bunch of blubber at age 35.
