It was interesting to see the comments of reserve outside linebacker Pernell McPhee, who told the team website earlier this month that his goal was to lead the Ravens in sacks. This is the time of year for great optimism and you can't fault McPhee, or any other player for that matter, for establishing high goals. Perhaps, it's just McPhee being his free-spirited self, but I also wonder if the statement reveals a little about how he's feeling health-wise. Whether it has been his knees or his groin, McPhee just hasn't been healthy since his impressive six-sack rookie season. He has totaled just 3 1/2 sacks over the past two seasons. He has clearly lacked the quickness and explosion that he showed when he came on the scene in 2011 and left several veterans, including Jarret Johnson, predicting big things for McPhee. The Ravens have to create a much more consistent and formidable pass rush than they had for much of last season, and a healthy McPhee could be a big part of that. But it has been a while since he has been healthy.
