As a media member by day and super fan by night, he reports from the Under Armour Performance Center twice per week and brings Ravens news from a fan's perspective. His popular YouTube series Goobvision propelled his career and notoriety amongst Ravens fans, even helping him win the 2010 nationwide DIRECTV Ultimate Displaced Fan contest. He's been featured on shows such as The Jim Rome Show, ProFootballTalk Live, The Sirius XM Blitz with Rich Gannon and Adam Schein, Sirius XM's MadDog Radio, The Michael Irvin Show, Tony Bruno Show, Two Live Stews and FoxSports.com to name a few (or is that a lot?). He's caught a touchdown pass from Warren Moon during a flag football game and hates the Pittsburgh Steelers more than anyone else on the face of the earth. Twitter: RavenManiac 

Dallas Clark to the Ravens?

D.Clark_
According to Aaron Wilson from the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens and tight end Dallas Clark have mutual interest per a source. Clark is currently a free agent and is looking to resume his playing career after recording 47 receptions for 435 yards and four touchdowns as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012. If he decides to sign with the Ravens, he’ll reunite with his old coach Jim Caldwell, and offensive counterpart, wide receiver Brandon Stokley, who officially signed with the Ravens earlier this morning. Clark does have...

Communication Is Primary Key For Secondary

chykie brown
Throughout training camp, the secondary for the Baltimore Ravens has been one of their top performing groups. Unfortunately, for the first-team defensive backfield, that didn’t translate well during Thursday’s preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Fortunately for the Ravens, the struggles that they endured were all coachable, as the team had multiple breakdowns communication-wise, which was expected with such a tremendous amount of turnover from last year’s group. Following Saturday’s practice, John Harbaugh assessed his priorities as they relate to the secondary. “First of all, talent, secondly, individual technique...

CAMP NOTES: Ticked Off and Picked Off

Baltimore Ravens Training Camp August 22, 2009
Saturday’s training camp practice was quite an eventful one. Let’s get to the details. Don’t Ask John Harbaugh About Injuries As fans await the injury status of running back Bernard Pierce and wide receiver Deonte Thompson, head coach John Harbaugh doesn’t feel like talking about it. “No comment on any injury situation,” Harbaugh said following Saturday’s practice. “It’s training camp. If it’s something serious, I’ll let you know. I’m not going to get into every knick or bruise that we have on our team.” Update: The Baltimore Sun has reported...

Players feel the wrath of John Harbaugh

After hoisting the Lombardi trophy, the corresponding roster moves spoke volumes as to who the undisputed leader of the Ravens would be. Owner Steve Bisciotti made it clear that Joe Flacco would be the on-field leader now that Ray Lewis had retired, but make no mistake about it – this is John Harbaugh’s team. Standing near the sidelines for today’s training camp practice, we heard a very testy Harbaugh who had no problem publicly shaming a few players who were either underperforming or being disobedient. As a typical training camp...

First game does little to solve wide receiver puzzle

Screen Shot 2013-08-08 at 10.54.37 PM
In their preseason opener, the Ravens were able to produce 44 points against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While the backups had their time to shine, the performance of the first-team offense did little to help answer the questions surrounding the wide receiving corps. During the first two series of the game, the starting offense failed to produce a point, and the two wide receivers expected to fill the roles behind Torrey Smith failed to produce. Jacoby Jones & Tandon Doss Both Jacoby Jones and Tandon Doss were held without a catch, Jones...

No Fun League: Stop Ruining Football!

Super Bowl XLVII - Baltimore Ravens v San Francisco 49ers
The first week of 2013 was an emotional one for Ravens fans. Five days after learning about Ray Lewis’ intentions for his “last ride,” a jam-packed M&T Bank Stadium witnessed Lewis in his final home game of his career. At the end of the victory, one of the greatest defensive players of all time lined up on offense, ten yards behind quarterback Joe Flacco who was about to kneel down and run out the clock during the Wild Card Playoff against the Indianapolis Colts. As the clock read “0:00,” Lewis...

Former Terp Furstenburg Looks to Capitalize on Golden Opportunity

furstenburg
The proverbial “roster bubble” is about to become the most popular phrase in NFL training camps, and former Maryland Terp and current Ravens rookie undrafted free agent Matt Furstenburg finds himself firmly sitting atop it. Following tight end Dennia Pitta’s season-ending hip dislocation, Furstenburg has been given a legitimate opportunity to earn a spot on the Ravens 53-man roster. When one door closes, another opens, and although Pitta’s injury was detrimental to the offense, it created an open door where there wasn’t one before – at the TE position. “It’s...

Daryl Smith: “I’ll Try to Do My Talking With the Pads”

NFL: Baltimore Ravens-Training Camp
During the offseason, the Ravens faced the difficult task of attempting to replace two future first-ballot Hall of Fame players. Losing Ray Lewis and Ed Reed at the same time is a bitter pill to swallow. Nonetheless, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome did a tremendous job in free agency by replacing experienced veterans with other experienced veterans (albeit not Hall of Fame worthy players). Prior to signing with Baltimore, Daryl Smith spent his entire 9-year career with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Both Smith, who is expected to start at middle linebacker,...

Jerry Rosburg Not a Fan of Pro Bowl Rule Changes

Rosburg Bynes
Last season, Ravens special teams coach Jerry Rosburg was partially responsible for sending WR/KR Jacoby Jones to the Pro Bowl. Fortunately for Jones, he was unable to attend the game as he and the Ravens were playing in the Super Bowl. Now, if Jones has any chance of ever playing in the NFL’s version of an All-Star game, it’ll have to solely be for his exploits as a receiver. The NFL announced the Pro Bowl will eliminate kickoffs, instead opting to place the ball at the 25 yard line to...

Camp Notes August 1: Pick City

NFL: Baltimore Ravens-Minicamp
Competition Breeds Success During practice, fans may find it interesting to know that the Ravens are extremely divided between the offense and defense. Of course they’re all a family after the final horn sounds ending practice, but when they’re battling, you’d think it was a Ravens/Steelers throw down. Terrell Suggs is the designated trash talker for the defense – no surprise there. However, what may surprise you is that Joe Flacco has been the vocal leader on offense, and he’s been throwing out some gems. Unfortunately, I can’t repeat most...

Camp Notes July 31: Butterfingers Return

usatsi_7350928
After receiving their first day off since training camp began last Thursday, the Ravens returned to the Under Armour Performance Center to continue installing their offense and worked on disguising blitz packages as well. The team was once again in pads, but they haven’t had that many contact drills since Sunday’s practice. Wide Receivers: Drops, Drops and More Drops From what I’ve seen, It’s not looking good for the wide receiving corps. Even though there were a few deep touchdown passes today, the Ravens wideouts also shot themselves in the...

Pollard’s Termination Letter from Ravens Fuels Motivation

Pollard Titans
Athletes and football players alike employ many different tactics intended to provide additional motivation. For some players, it’s being told they’re not good enough. For others, it may be smack talk from an opponent that eventually becomes locker room bulletin board material. For former Ravens safety Bernard Pollard, his determination will be driven by termination. NFL Network’s Albert Breer tweeted a photo of Pollard’s locker, now a member of the Tennessee Titans. Pinned inside the locker is a Notice of Termination sent by the Baltimore Ravens on March 14, 2013, a day...

Ravens’ Focus Shifting Back to the Running Game?

ricetdne
After Monday’s training camp practice, head coach John Harbaugh announced that fullback Vonta Leach would be returning to the Ravens. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the deal was for two years, which was something that Leach had a problem finding on the open market, due to being 33 years old and playing one of the highest contact (and lowest demand) positions in football. Leach’s addition comes at a perfect time for the Ravens, as their offense suffered a major blow when they lost tight end Dennis Pitta for the season...

Michael Huff Reveling in Baltimore’s Winning Culture

Extreme Makeover: Ravens Defense Edition Since hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in New Orleans, the Ravens have lost more defensive starters than they’ve retained. With so much turnover, doubting the ability of the Ravens defense to become a cohesive unit for a repeat performance is fair; however, it’s something the franchise is going to let happen. General Manager Ozzie Newsome knew there was going to be an overhaul, but he had a contingency plan in place. Often overlooked is the fact that Newsome replaced lost veterans with other veterans. Look no...

Camp Notes: July 29

20130729_SM_588737
It’s Ice Cream Day! Today was a special day at training camp, as two ice cream trucks pulled onto the field at the conclusion of practice. Later, guard Kelechi Osemele was asked why he didn’t visit the truck, and said that only the defense could visit the truck because they “won” practice today. Being the first class organization that they are, the Ravens even treated the media and allowed us to visit the truck. For the first time ever, I was allowed to do something at the facility that Joe...

Justin Tucker: “I’ve come to love this city”

Justin Tucker Os game 600
Throughout the past year, the city of Baltimore has become infatuated with Ravens’ kicker Justin Tucker – and for Tucker, the feelings is mutual. Plenty of stories have been told about Tucker’s celebrity impressions, freestyle rapping and multi-lingual opera performances. Yet there is something else that sets Tucker apart from many of his teammates. The popular choice for many players on the Ravens roster is to reside not too far away from the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills, MD. Given the grueling hours of preparation both physically and...

In terms of padded training camp practices, Sunday’s practice was a little more subdued – or perhaps it just seemed that way given the action-packed practice on Saturday, which was filled with plenty of fights and even a season-ending injury. That’s a great segue into the camp notes for Sunday’s practice. Here you go… Harbaugh Confirms Dennis Pitta Is Out For The Season The news Ravens fans had been dreading was officially confirmed by head coach John Harbaugh following practice. Dennis Pitta will miss the 2013 season with a dislocated...

Dennis Pitta Dislocates Hip, Out For Season Opener

Baltimore Ravens Training Camp
Staying healthy during training camp is the key to a successful start of the regular season. Unfortunately for the Ravens, they’ve already lost one of their main offensive weapons. During red zone drills, tight end Dennis Pitta attempted to haul in a jump ball while being defended by safety James Ihedigbo. Pitta fell to the ground and stayed there for a few minutes. Afterwards, he was taken back into the Under Armour Performance Center with a towel over his head. Minutes later, a stretcher was brought from the parking lot...

Doss on Boldin: “You Really Can’t Replace Him”

Tandon Doss practice
The court of public opinion in and around Baltimore is that the Ravens are thin at wide receiver. Whether the Ravens address the position either through free agency or a trade remains to be seen. But as for that wildly popular opinion, don’t count Ravens wide receiver Tandon Doss as one of its proponents. Heading into his third NFL season, Doss thinks the Ravens already have what it takes on the roster. “Me personally, I do [believe we have what it takes],” Doss said. “You’re always going to have confidence...
