Ravens get no relief from Bears

Baltimore owner Steve Bisciotti is not pleased with Chicago (US Presswire). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

NEW YORK – The trade deal that fell through at the last moment and cost the Ravens the No. 26 pick in the first round of the NFL draft continues to fester in the mind of Baltimore owner Steve Bisciotti a few days later.

(In case you need a behind the scenes look at what happened, click this link. )

Though the Ravens wanted the Bears follow through and give them the fourth-round pick Chicago originally had agreed to trade (and though commissioner Roger Goodell apparently encouraged the Bears to give Baltimore some retribution), Chicago has refused to do.

Instead, the Bears traded their fourth-round pick in order to move up in the second round and take DT Stephen Paea.

Bisciotti is not happy with it.

“I’m disappointed in the Bears and the McCaskeys,” Bisciotti told the Baltimore Sun, via the Chicago Tribune. “It is, in my opinion, a deviation from their great legacy. They concluded that their heartfelt and admirable apology was sufficient for our loss. All of us at the Ravens strongly disagree … probably end of story.”

On the Bears side, they feel they don’t owe anybody anything. They’d already called Baltimore on Friday to give an apology, but as far as following through on a trade that never actually occured, Chicago’s management wasn’t prepared to give up any of its draft picks.

“We made an honest mistake,” Bears GM Jerry Angelo said. “No more than that. There was total transparency. You make your apologies and we did and if there are consequences, you accept those consequences and then you move on. So be it.

Pay back is a Biatchhh!! Ozzie how does it feel?? I just about broke my TV wondering why the Vikings hadn't picked a player in 2003.

Couldn't have happened to a better team then the Ravens. The Bears made you knuckleheads look like fools. I heard one of the Bears draft team gave a thumbs up to the Vikings draft table. FANTASTIC!!

It certainly wasn't Ozzie's fault, Jerry Angelo can usually screw up his own draft and this time tried screwing up Baltimore's. But Ravens fans are total two-faced morons if they were on here whining about it because the Ravens did EXACTLY the same thing to the Minnesota Vikings in 2003, and it made the Vikings look like complete fools when they had two teams jump in front of them. That's why Ozzie didn't throw Jerry Angelo under the bus: He'd have looked like a total hypocrit

I love how steeler fans are the ones always running their mouths about this "off field issue." When you team has more Off field issues with your players then any...Ever hear of the saying "dont throw stones when you live in a glass house"??

The Ravens still drafted a guy with "off-the-field issues", so all is right with the world.  One more convict on a team of criminals.
