DRAFT PROSPECTS: Interior O-Line Round 1

The Ravens brass stated that they weren’t happy with the 2013 Baltimore Ravens in the “State of the Ravens” presser on Tuesday. As always, the team’s goal is to get better for next year, and that all begins with the NFL Draft.

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: Dalton Dooms Bengals Again

dawwwwton
The NFL is a tricky league. While teams leave no stone unturned in their search for talent, certain moves within organizations just don’t always turn out as expected. We learned a few things in this weekend’s Wild Card games. Some were obvious, perhaps things we already knew… Andrew Luck is a special athlete. The Chargers have the potential to make a Raven-esque run. Andy Dalton isn’t the answer for the Bengals. Watching Dalton’s Sunday battle against San Diego, I think we all saw the Bengals’ quarterback in a nutshell. He...

Baltimore, Champions Again!

Minnesota Vikings v Baltimore Ravens
This season, Kurt Backert and I managed our fantasy football team for the Crown Royal Fantasy League (First and Crown). We were approached to enter this league and Tony Lombardi gave us the chance to represent RussellStreetReport.com. The league draft was held in Baltimore as other participants were flown in by Crown Royal from various locations around the country. Kurt drafted well and gave us our best chance to win on a weekly basis with a dynamic roster.   Kurt shares his royal experience… What a night for football! Not...

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: Steelers Hanging by a Thread

Kevin Huber Bengals
After the “Miracle against Minnesota” and Monday Night’s finish, I don’t even want to know how next week’s game ends. Whether it was a 61-yard field goal or a crucial defensive stop, the Ravens came through clutch when they needed to. With some help from the Steelers—who are also still in the playoff hunt—the Ravens are in prime position to take the AFC North, and quite possibly, a first-round bye. Here’s what is going on Behind Enemy Lines: CINCINNATI BENGALS Injury Update: Sunday night’s loss against Pittsburgh was embarrassing. Although...

FANTASY BLITZ: These Aren’t the Gurus You’re Looking For

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: Bengals Make a Statement

We won. It wasn’t painless and it wasn’t easy to watch, but one fact stands on its own—we won. You can find the updated playoff picture and scenarios here that highlights a possibility of Pittsburgh winning being favorable to the Ravens. While it will be tough, it’s a week where rooting for Pittsburgh is the right thing to do. With that said, here’s our weekly look Behind Enemy Lines—maybe the most important edition of the season.   CINCINNATI BENGALS Fact that Favors the Ravens: If there’s one thing that is making...

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: Bengals’ AFC North Lead Holds Steady

chargersbengals
We’ve always known that nothing is a sure thing in the NFL, but this 2013 season has driven that fact into our heads every Sunday like never before. Let’s face it: The AFC consists of one, maybe two, powerful teams. Other than Denver (in warm weather), New England, and Kansas City, the AFC can be summed up as a bunch of average teams struggling to keep their chins above the water. While the Ravens do control their own destiny, their schedule is fierce; the 6th spot is anything but locked...

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: Can Cincinnati Hold On Down the Stretch?

Andy Dalton
Despite the collective “sky is falling” feeling from fans just a week ago, the Ravens are back in prime position to take the 6th Wild Card seed with just Tennessee and Pittsburgh ahead of John Harbaugh’s crew right now. A victory against the Steelers could take Pittsburgh out of the race—for now—and secure the Ravens’ place as the AFC North’s dark horse. Let’s take a look “Behind Enemy Lines” for the late stretch of the season. CINCINNATI BENGALS A Loss in the Near Future: A Ravens win and Steelers and...

Ravens Offense Should be Taylor Made

Joe Flacco, Tyrod Taylor
Opinions amongst fans are always varied when it comes to their team’s offensive coordinator. The love/hate nature is inevitable. Regardless of prior successes said coordinator has enjoyed, one fact resonates: The NFL is a “What have you done for me lately?” league. The situation that Jim Caldwell is in the midst of is a unique one—perhaps a mystery that can’t be solved. Is it really his fault? What can he really do with the lack of play-making weapons? No, the Ravens offensive struggles don’t all fall upon the shoulders of...

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: Dalton Struggles, Bengals Still Clamp Down on North

daltbrowns
There’s not much to say about last week. The Bengals basically ran away with the North with their win over the Browns, the Steelers won but still don’t look legitimate and you know how the Ravens game ended… Well, that’s it. Thanks for reading “Behind Enemy Lines”. Not really, but that about sums it all up! Here are a few of the more in-depth storylines including some of the teams’ top headlines.   CINCINNATI BENGALS Johnson Calls Out Fans: Even at 7-4, the Bengals still don’t look like the real...

BEHIND ENEMY LINES: Bengals Continue Sliding Back to Pack

Andy-Dalton-sacked-Bengals-Ravens
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to write a positive edition of “Behind Enemy Lines”. This week, I’m proud to say that the Ravens actually gained ground in the AFC North. It wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t conventional, and it wasn’t easy to watch. Nevertheless, the Ravens left Week 10 still in the hunt for a playoff berth. With the San Diego Chargers’ loss, the wild-card possibility doesn’t look out of the question either if the Ravens can’t secure the North late in the season. There’s a lot to...
