KIDZ KORNER: Flacco vs. RG3

Traveling down I-95 to take on Washington, the Ravens will look to prove skeptics wrong and bring a win back home to Baltimore. They eye a 4th straight win on the road, something that has been hard to come by in Charm City. In the history of the Baltimore Ravens, there has never been a four-game road win streak. What a feat! Doubters will doubt, and critics will critique, but the only thing John Harbaugh and Co. have to focus on is winning. Improving to 10-3 is the biggest thing...

KIDZ KORNER: Ben or no Ben, let’s be loud!

Initial Reports out of Pittsburgh were that Big Ben would be out for both of the games against the Ravens. But reports surfaced earlier this week that Ben has a “50 percent chance” of playing at M&T this Sunday. WARNING: Be prepared to hear how much of a “warrior” Ben is throughout the week. While Roethlisberger’s status is still uncertain, he hinted today on how he is feeling. (The following question and answer is courtesy of Steelers.com) Is pain the biggest issue right now? Roethlisberger: I can play through a...

KIDZ KORNER: Time to clinch!

Let me start this column by making sure everyone’s TV is okay. After a game like that, I’m sure that some remotes were thrown. Even though Ray Rice saved our backsides, what an UGLY GAME! Seriously, what was that? Sunday’s game went against everything we know as football fans. Zero points in the first half was a clear recipe for disaster, and 4th and 29? What football team converts a 4th and 29 with less than two minutes to play? There’s only one answer to that question- “Harbaugh’s Mighty Men!”...

KIDZ KORNER: An ugly win is still a win

As the Ravens squeaked out a 13-10 victory on Sunday night, many expert predictions were washed away. The game unfolded as the old fashioned cage match that is the Ravens – Steelers rivalry. Many believed that the Ravens would roll over Pittsburgh and in fact score 21+ points for the 8th time this season. But it wasn’t that easy for the Ravens offense as points were very hard to come by. It wasn’t a flashy game, but in the end, a 13-10 win was enough to give the Ravens a...

KIDZ KORNER: Ravens-Steelers!

It’s going to feel like a lifetime waiting for 8:20 on Sunday, but once it’s here the rivalry officially resumes. IT’S STEELERS WEEK. I hope Steelers fans have plenty of tissues ready, because this game has the potential to leave a flood of tears in Pittsburgh, PA. Before we get really get to the game, enjoy this quick video of the many uses of the Terrible Towel: Click here to view the embedded video. Alright, let’s get to the strategy. On Offense: While 55 points might be a stretch this...

KIDZ KORNER: Young players step up in huge win

Wasn’t Sunday fun? Joe Flacco flat out torched the Raiders defense, and the defensive line finally exhibited what they are capable of. With the line’s six batted balls, they all looked like J.J “Swatt” out there. The O-Line didn’t show up when it came to run blocking, but they provided QB Joe plenty of time to launch the ball to his weapons all afternoon long. While everyone is ecstatic about the way our stars played, I am thrilled about the way some of our young guys stepped up! They showed...

KIDZ KORNER: Interview – Bobby Rainey

I had the great chance to interview Ravens RB Bobby Rainey earlier this week. Bobby is currently on the active roster after being on the Practice Squad earlier in the year. Joe Wedra: What was it like to find out that you would be part of the Ravens? What were your thoughts? Bobby Rainey: It was crazy, surreal, & a blessing at the same time. I was just ready to start playing football & learn as much as I can from Ray Rice & the other vets. JW: What is...

KIDZ KORNER: Ravens-Raiders preview

The Raiders will barge into M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday to try and keep their playoff hopes alive. Currently sitting at 3-5, Oakland is absolutely desperate to notch a win this week, trying to keep up with the Broncos and Chargers in the AFC West. The Ravens can’t sleep on this game however, as the schedule after Oakland could be devastating to the team’s final record. While many fans are anxious about Sunday, I am not worried! If some one-on-one matchups work out like they should, we should rout the...

Ravens need to make a statement in Cleveland

joebrowns
After a much needed bye week, the Ravens are back in action at the Castle and ready to enter the “Dawg Pound”. After a Week 7 embarrassment against Houston, Ravens Nation has been champing at the bit to get ready to watch real Ravens football again. Week 4 against the Browns was anything but pretty. The once vaunted Baltimore defense let Brandon Weeden tear them to shreds as they surrendered 320 yards through the air and just barely squeaked by with a 23-16 victory. The Ravens could have very easily...

Kidz Korner: Joe Flacco, to be or not to be elite…

Flacco Manning
Elite. One word, but it means so much. Webster’s Dictionary describes it as: “The best of a class”. In the real world, it’s just another word but in football it’s more than JUST a word. What does it mean in the world of football? “The best of the class” is obviously a strong phrase. But it is a phrase that hasn’t been defined when we scrutinize a QB. How is “elite” measured? Super Bowl Rings? MVP’s? Pro-Bowls? Joe Flacco has been in this conversation ever since his famous interview on...

KIDZ KORNER: As Defensive Coordinator Pees doesn’t please

Dean Pees
5-1 is a record that may stand out on the stat sheet, but it’s the numbers behind that number that really stand out. Dean Pees’ defense has proven to be absolutely miserable in these first 6 games and glancing at the following numbers, it doesn’t look like they will improve: * 396 yards per game (26th in the NFL) * 136 rushing yards per game (26th in the NFL) * 10 Sacks (24th in the NFL) (Fewest in AFC North) It’s really sad to look at those numbers after watching...

KIDZ KORNER: Q&A with Terrence Cody

Terrence Cody
This week I had the great opportunity to interview Ravens DL Terrence Cody. Joe Wedra- Who was your biggest inspiration growing up; and why? Terrence Cody- My biggest inspiration growing up was my mom. The reason why is because she was a single parent raising 4 kids by herself and was still able to keep us fed, clothed, happy. Happy to have her as a mother. When did you know that you wanted to play football and how did you find out that you loved the game? I found I...

The Chiefs are ripe for the taking!

Wild Card Playoffs - Baltimore Ravens v Kansas City Chiefs
With an anything but a convincing win against Cleveland behind us, it’s time to start looking ahead to a crucial Week 5 matchup against the 1-3 Kansas City Chiefs! The Red Sea in Arrowhead is one of the greatest atmospheres in the NFL and it is always a harsh environment for opposing teams to go to battle there! The Chiefs, who have played well over the last few years, have shown some weaknesses this year that the Ravens HAVE to exploit. And it all starts with starting QB Matt Cassel....

Revenge is a dish best served cold

Ray Intro Sunday Night Football
“Revenge is a dish best served cold” – Ray Lewis before Sunday Night The stage was set. It was almost the exact same scenario we saw last year in the 2012 AFC Championship matchup. Joe Flacco’s offense has the ball with just less than two minutes to go. A touchdown would win the game, but this time, a FG would too. And it did! Finally, we beat the Pats in the regular season. Revenge is what it was; a game to silence every New Englander that says they out played...

A familiar and deserving whipping boy in Baltimore

Cameron Flacco
Week 2 has come and gone, and the results in the first two games have been astonishingly similar to the 2011 campaign, a week 1 demolition against a rival AFC North team, and then a complete MELTDOWN against a team that we should be kicking all across the field. It just doesn’t make sense. How can a team have an almost textbook week 1 and then follow up with a game that leaves fans puking afterwards? It’s simply incredible, the inconsistency of a squad that has every weapon needed to...

Kidz Korner: Ravens-Eagles preview

eaglestrophycase
Wasn’t that last one fun?  The Ravens beat the Bungles so bad, that they left Baltimore with their tails between their legs.  Nice way to begin the season on prime time, with a good old fashion beat down. Now, enough celebrating – we have a tough one on our hands now.  The Ravens travel to Philadelphia to play Michael Vick and the Eagles.  Last week, as we all remember, Vick barely came out of the Dawg Pound alive, as the Browns found a way to be the Browns, losing the...

KIDZ KORNER: Taylor or Painter or both?

QBs
After the first round of cuts, there were no real surprises as far as the players who were released. Well, besides Wide Left… I mean Billy Cundiff. Sorry- Still having flashbacks from last January. Two players still hanging in there and battling for the backup QB role are Tyrod Taylor and Curtis Painter. Both have had a pretty convincing pre-season and are making a case to have a spot in the final 53. They might be fighting for a spot, but could it be possible that they both make it?...

KIDS KORNER: The Race at WR

deonte_thompson
Just one week into camp, many new faces have made great strides to impress the Ravens coaching staff. Newcomers like Courtney Upshaw, Jacoby Jones, and Corey Graham have shown the team that they are here to make a big impact on the 2012 team. Some will step in right away and be a big part of the team success (hopefully). But what about the players that will be fighting for the last spots on the team? It is unknown how many Wide Receivers will be on the squad this year....

KIDZ KORNER: Ravens 2012 Preview

boldin2
Over this offseason the Ravens have had key losses and key additions. Our major loss was Ben Grubs. With that loss, our line will be a lot worse, but that’s not all. Recently Bryant Mckinnie has had a personal problem. I hear a rumor that he has no self-motivation which would explain why he is sometimes out of shape. Recent reports have said that Mckinnie will report Monday. For the Ravens sake we hope that he shows up because we want an experienced player playing. Well Mickinnie isn’t the only...

32 Yards to Tie!

Billy_Cundiff_AFC_Championship_Baltimore_Ravens_SOg4nBuhsy4l
“32 Yards to tie, and the kick… LOOK OUT, NO! ITS NO GOOD!” – Jim Nantz- January 22nd, 2012. It feels like just yesterday when we heard these words as Billy Cundiff missed a chip-in 32 yarder to tie the AFC Championship game. I know for me, it doesn’t seem like that was 6 months ago. I still haven’t gotten over it and I’m sure I probably never will. But it’s July now, and it is time to shift focus to this year. A year that hopefully will be great...
