CAMP NOTES: Steve Smith Sr. Knows His Role

stevesmithjohnharbaugh
If there was ever a football player that was destined to be a Raven, that player would have to be new wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. “I love the personality. It’s not really about how you say it; it’s about what you do, and that’s the part I love about it. I’m not really concerned more about the perception,” Smith Sr. stated at the podium on Wednesday. “It’s more about what’s going on. So, that’s the thing that I love about it – what’s really going on, what are we...

Camp Notes: Suggs Says Last Season Was a Rude Awakening

Suggs Stretches 1
Terrell Suggs isn’t happy about the way the Ravens 2013 season played out. “When we all left, we all felt like we all kind of let each other down,” Suggs commented when asked about last season’s disappointment. “It was definitely a rude awakening. It sucks. It sucks. You just have to watch teams compete and teams that you played get the opportunity to win a championship. It sucks, and it’s definitely something we don’t want to feel again.” The Ravens spent much of the offseason after the 2012 season upgrading...

Flacco Confident 2014 Will be Better

flacco2013camp
For quarterback Joe Flacco 2013 was a disappointing season to say the very least. In 2013, Flacco set career highs in passing yards (3,912) along with passing attempts (614), but also in interceptions (22) as well, while throwing for just 19 touchdowns. Some will say that his careers highs were a byproduct of an inept running game while others will say it was his offensive line giving him zero protection as he was sacked a career high 48 times. Both are valid points indeed. Joe certainly isn’t without fault as the former...

CAMP NOTES: Mosley Ready to Make an Impact

Less than a year removed from his playing days at Alabama, rookie linebacker C.J. Mosley is happy to be back on the football field in preparation for the regular season. Throughout OTA’s and minicamp, the Ravens first-round draft pick has looked like a rookie who is ready to make an impact for the team in 2014. As training camp opened up on Tuesday for rookies, quarterbacks and veterans returning with injuries, Mosley has seemingly picked up where he left off. While the youngster realizes it’s a learning process, the two-time...

CAMP NOTES: QBs, Rookies & Injured Vets Get Started!

flaccowenningtaylortc2014
Quarterbacks, rookies and those veterans returning from injuries took to the field today as the Ravens kicked off their 2014 training camp under sunny skies at the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills, Maryland. Wearing just shorts and pads along with helmets, the players went through their drills much like they did throughout OTAs and minicamp last month. Two returning veterans to hit the practice field today were running back Bernard Pierce (shoulder) and offensive lineman Jah Reid (calf). Pierce, who was limited in offseason activities after having shoulder surgery...

Training Camp Preview: Secondary

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens won the Super Bowl in 2012, but it wasn’t due to the play of the secondary. Aging faster than desired, Baltimore’s safety duo of Bernard Pollard and Ed Reed didn’t help much as cover guys and Lardarius Webb’s ACL injury made the cornerback depth sparse throughout the now legendary playoff run. After winning in spite of a poor secondary, the Ravens made it clear during the 2013 offseason that they were going to rebuild the unit. That started with the selection of strong safety Matt Elam, who experienced...

FAN’S CHOICE: Baltimore Ravens All-Time Team, Linebacker

Ray What would you give for today
Today we wind down our 53-man roster selection and it only seems fitting that the final position to choose would be that of linebacker. For many years it seemed as though the Ravens churned out quality linebackers the way the Atlanta Braves used to groom pitchers. But times have changed and so have the demands on the position particularly in today’s pass happy NFL. Yesterday you voted on the position of offensive tackle and you still can by clicking VOTE HERE. For the moment our four tackles look to be:...

Training Camp Preview: Linebackers

temp052814_OTAs_0010--nfl_mezz_1280_1024
Not much happened at linebacker for the Ravens this offseason. Other than drafting Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley in the first round, both the inside and outside linebackers group remained intact, thanks in part to the extension of Terrell Suggs and re-signing of Daryl Smith. Not much has changed for either group, but there’s still a handful of players to keep an eye on as training camp begins. Notable new additions: C.J. Mosley – The only addition to either unit expected to have any distinct amount of playing time this season,...

7 Worst National Anthem Renditions of All-Time

abc_carl_lewis_national_anthem_nt_120711_wmain[1]
The selection of Joey Odoms as the Ravens’ new singer of the National Anthem was just made today. That got us thinking about other renditions of the Star Spangled Banner… Some of them haven’t gone so well, and understandably so. The pressure can certainly get to the average person. Many guest singers simply aren’t used to performing in front of as big of a crowd as sporting events draw. Some just aren’t even singers to begin with. Carl Lewis, considered one of the greatest track and field athletes ever, performed...

Ravens Select a New Singer For National Anthem

Screenshot 2014-07-21 16.09.44
The Baltimore Ravens announced Monday that Joey Odoms has been named the winner of their national anthem competition and is scheduled to sing at each home game during the 2014 season. One of approximately 50 people to audition for the role, Odoms becomes the Ravens’ second-ever regular performer of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Longtime vocalist Mishael Miller, who sang at nearly every home game for 18 seasons (since 1996), made his last appearance at the Ravens’ 2013 home finale prior to becoming the head pastor at St. Luke A.M.E. Zion Church...

The Ravens Need Suggs to Lead

Suggs
For years we have been entertained by linebacker Terrell Suggs. Like many of us, Suggs shares the same disdains for the many NFL teams we love to hate. Whether it was the famous t-shirt he donned with a Raven flipping off Steelers fans or the pregame fan torment in New England during the Ravens championship run, Suggs never disappoints. While 2013 was an up and down year for Terrell Suggs, the veteran linebacker started off strong looking like an early Defensive Player of the Year candidate leading the team in...

Training Camp Preview: Defensive Line

Jernigan-97
In terms of depth across the unit, the defensive line for the Baltimore Ravens ranks near the top of the deepest positional units for the team heading into training camp. Using the draft yet again to add youth to the defensive front, the Ravens have stockpiled enough talent at defensive tackle and defensive end to have an ample influx of youth, while also possessing key veterans to round out the unit. When it comes to predicting playing time, guessing which defensive linemen will get the most on-field time this season...

Training Camp Preview: Offensive Line

KO
We could just say “Baltimore’s offensive line can’t get any worse than last year, so it can only go up from here” and call it a day. That assumption is probably true, but how much better the offensive line for the Baltimore Ravens will be in 2014 remains to be seen. Easily the most forgettable collective offensive line performance in franchise history, the 2013 line never gelled, never had one good collective game, and quite frankly was just defunct of talent. The Ravens are returning their two lone quality starters...

Training Camp Preview: Tight Ends

Pitta
No offensive positional group will look more different for the Baltimore Ravens this seasons than tight end, where newly re-signed Dennis Pitta is the lone returning player at the position. After an underwhelming 2013 season in which Ed Dickson and Dallas Clark were the two main contributors, the front office overhauled and improve a once ailing group. While still not anything above average, Baltimore’s set of tight ends is much more promising heading into this year than the last. Notable new additions: Owen Daniels and Crockett Gillmore - Once offensive coordinator...

FAN’S CHOICE: Baltimore Ravens All-Time Team, Fullback

Screenshot 2014-07-19 09.19.54
The Ravens for many years were considered to be a smash mouth football team. Play good defense, manage field position, protect the football, take away the football and run the football. This was a formula that produced many wins and a world championship during the Brian Billick Era. But to make that formula work you need the right mix of players. On offense this approach only works with a solid fullback and throughout the Ravens history they’ve often fielded a throwback player positioned in front of their tailback that John...
