The recent surprise retirement of Derrick Mason has got me thinking about good ol' 59. Yes,Mason and Fletcher play completely different positions,but there are a few similarities that concern me. Both players are/were by far the team leaders at their positions. Derrick Mason had 80 catches for 1,037 yards and 5 TDs in 2008. Mark Clayton was second in all those stats and he had only 41 catches for 695 yards and 3 TDs. London Fletcher had a monstrous 133 tackles in the '08 season. Rocky McIntosh was second in tackles with 87. In other words,the Ravens have some huge cleats to fill with Mason's retirement,as would the Redskins if London Fletcher were to call it quits. Both players also provide a veteran presence at their positons and are game changers. I leave you with two questions: How do you think the Ravens will replace Derrick Mason?(In the event he does not pull a Favrerooski and try to return) Personally,I think Marvin Harrison would be an excellent pick-up if they could get him reletively cheap and he'd provide the veteren presence at WR that the Ravens now lack. How much longer do you think Fletch will play? Forgive me for the lack of quality of this post,this is my first one and I haven't a damn clue what i'm doing. Constructive critisism is welcomed.
