Clayton was a guy I was targeting going into this season, but it seemed like in every draft someone would take him just before I was going to.

What made me angry then makes me happy now.

It's a bit soon to rush to judgement, methinks. Clayton is still hobbled by his ankle. Once he heals up he should be on the field every play and then we'll see who gets the better looks.
It does worry me that McNair is already hurt and looks lost. And that Boller looks like....Boller O:-) But it is only one game.

Fwiw, Boller's presence will likely be a boon to Demetrius. McNair just can't huck it as far as Boller can, and the ability to get downfield fast for the long ball is what sets Demetrius apart from Clayton and Mason.

Yeah, Clayton only runs a 4.45 and WIlliams runs a 4.5+, but using gorilla math...Demetrius is faster.

Gorilla math? Is that where 2 + 2 = Smash! I win ?

Huh? Did I say that Demetrius Williams runs a faster 40 yard dash than Mark Clayton? "Getting downfield fast for the long ball" involves a lot more than just running fast. Speed's important, but you have to run routes well, not get jammed at the line, extend your body and arms properly, etc. Sorry, but Demetrius is the Ravens' primary deep threat.
