LIKE A GOOD NEIGHBOR C. BROOKS IS THERE!

For years one of the most dependable units of their team has been the Ravens defensive line. Since the club’s inception they have held opponents to under 4 yards per carry and since the 2005 season that unit has been managed by Clarence Brooks. Here’s a tip of the hat to an often under-appreciated member of John Harbaugh’s staff.

THE PLAY THAT ENDED A SEASON

Many have criticized the backbreaking interception at the 1:46 mark of the Divisional game in Foxboro and with good reason. There’s plenty of blame to distribute between Torrey Smith and Joe Flacco. Flacco had options on the play but clearly the play (or lack thereof) that Smith made on the ball was the major culprit – an effort not becoming of a professional wide receiver in the National Football League.

REACH FOR THE STARS

Save the brilliant catch he made in Denver over Champ Bailey, Torrey has never been known as a high-point receiver and that’s something that could be of value to Joe Flacco and his long-ball capabilities. Might Michigan’s Devin Funchess be an answer? We let the tape tell the tale HERE.

HE SAID WHAT?

Joe Flacco when asked to comment on Ray Lewis’ speeches once said, “Half the time I don’t even know what Ray’s talking about.” He left many scratching their heads after his comments on Tom Brady. More HERE.


FRIED (BY) RICE

This week the Ravens settled with Ray Rice before the court rendered its decision. Here’s a look at how that settlement might hurt the Ravens in 2015.

WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

The problem with being a playoff participant is that the season can come to a screeching halt. Hopes are piqued and then seemingly nuked on the result of one play. We’ve experienced that twice in New England as fans of the Baltimore Ravens.
But all is not lost. In January 2012 the Ravens, led by Ray Lewis took the bitter defeat and used it as a rallying cry – one that galvanized the team during the 2012 season. Can John Harbaugh do the same in January of 2015? Here’s a look…

 

Which Ravens rival do you despise most?
