Default Arthur Jones: Ravens are a Dream Team in the Making

Arthur Jones thinks the Ravens are “a dream team in the making”

Posted by Michael David Smith

The last time a player gave his team the “Dream Team” label, it didn’t work out well. But Ravens defensive lineman Arthur Jones isn’t worried about that.

Asked about the Ravens’ acquisition of Elvis Dumervil, Jones echoed Vince Young’s infamous comment about the Eagles two years ago.

“That’s awesome. It’s like a dream team in the making. I can’t wait until we all get together,” Jones told Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.

Jones also said he has no fears about how the holdovers will fit into a Ravens front that has also recently added Chris Canty and Marcus Spears, saying that any time General Manager Ozzie Newsome brings players in, he has a good plan for how those players will be used.

“Don’t worry. Ozzie Newsome always has a plan. In Ozzie, we trust,” Jones said.

Newsome has earned that trust, consistently putting together one of the best rosters in the league in his time running the Ravens. Even if “dream team” is probably not the word Newsome would use to describe his handiwork.

-- The Ravens lose 7 starters and they're a dream team in the making?

Back to Clown college, Arthur.

Arthur is just glad he doesn't have to play much this coming season.

Newsome is excellent at spotting and acquiring talent.

You're not a fucking "dream team" when you lose the two HOF defensive players who MADE YOUR TEAM for the past decade. Dumervil is a nice signing but it hardly constitutes this bullshit.

Wow..... just wow. This is even dumber than when Vince Young referred to the Eagles as the Dream Team.

Which in turn lead to every sports writer referring to that season in the following manner:

"The Dream Team has become a nightmare"

So I guess the 2013 Super Bowl Champion Ravens' team wasn't a Dream Team because, you know, they won the Super Bowl?!?! Don't anyone tell Ray Lewis that. He might kill somebody.

Too late. What I mean is, I'm sure somebody's already told him about it.

Lucky for Joe Flacco, Cam Cameron got fired and Jim Caldwell was able to call the correct play to win the Super Bowl and curb Lewis' bloodlust for a little while longer.
