MV: We haven't chatted since the Ravens signed Pro Bowl pass rusher Elvis Dumervil, but I know that you weren't as big of a fan as the signing as others. Can you explain your stance for our readers?
GM: Ha ha! My stance on Dumervil did get me a fair amount of backlash earlier in the offseason. To clarify, I don't think he's a bad player and he was the best available option as an edge rusher. However, for me he's just too inconsistent as a pass rusher and not good enough against the run. As a pass rusher he has averaged six games per season, since we began grading in 2008, where he has two total pressures (sacks, hits and hurries) or less and, for me, that's just not good enough for the contract he received.
