07:08 AM ET 10.07 | Ravens left tackle Bryant McKinnie may just have played his final game in a Ravens uniform on Sunday. McKinnie struggled mightily against the Dolphins' pass rushers, whiffing in the second quarter on a sack by outside linebacker Koa Misi. "We know we have to work on some things protection-wise," coach John Harbaugh said. "We're going to be a good pass-protection team, I guarantee you that." The Ravens acquired a potential replacement for McKinnie at left tackle on Thursday when they traded for Jacksonville Jaguars offensive tackle Eugene Monroe. Monroe was a healthy scratch Sunday as he continues absorbing the playbook, but it appears McKinnie is operating on borrowed time. The Ravens didn't land a younger, more athletic offensive tackle to not play him. McKinnie, 34, is in limbo.

Trade him to the Dolphins!

Maybe the Raiders can use him to make David Carr feel at home, like when he was the Texans first QB and holds the got sacked record?

didn't they run a story last week about him being GONE?

McKinnie? Doing the limbo? That could go viral on YouTube.

or we could trade him to your Patriots. Your O-line made Brady looked like Blaine Gabbert lastnight.

No one looks like Blaine Gabbert. That's a special kind of "overmatched" that few can hope to achieve.

one friggin' game! they will crank it up against the Saints next week at home. I don't think anyone had them going undefeated.

I sure hope Monroe is ready for next week.

If they cut McKinnie, it would be for the roster spot, not the money. I think I read last week that the Ravens wouldn't save any money by cutting him, so they should probably keep him as a (fat, overpaid) backup.

The Denver Post is reporting that Denver has opened as 27.5 point favorites over the Jags. That takes overmatched to a whole new level.

They could sit Manning for the entire game

After being a number 1 draft choice out of Miami a few years ago by Minnesota and later years being cut by that organization for being over weight and slow, he needs to think the Ravens for the extra years of service and the ring he got last year.

Relax, it was a joke. Crank it up against the Saints? You do know Saints is ranked #6 in sacks. G'luck!

Not one of our better outings.

But, it was a day game, unless you were watching from London.

Heee heee! It makes to much sense.

All the all-you-can-eat buffets are about to go broke in the metroplex.

He will do something more foolish like trade all his picks to move up to get Manziel.

Full circle. He has spent his whole life first in line in the cafeteria. Now last?
