INTERVIEW: Catching up with Kruger

Kruger
Paul Kruger, drafted in the 2nd round in the 2009 draft, gave me the great opportunity to interview him. With the departure of Jarret Johnson, I believe Kruger will be a crucial part to the team with his outstanding athletic abilities, and his intelligence on and off the field. Joe Wedra: Who/what Inspired you to play football and how? Paul Kruger: I would say my father, just because he played when he was younger and I always wanted to follow in his footsteps.  He is a great example to me....

KIDZ KORNER: Ravens choose to develop players instead of buy them

LaQuan_Williams2
It is no secret that the Ravens have been abnormally quiet during the beginning of the 2012 Free Agency period. Many people have been criticizing the team for not going out and getting top players like DE Mark Anderson or former Chargers WR Vincent Jackson. I know that missing out on these guys appears to be awful, but no need to fret Ravens fans. I think Ozzie Newsome has a plan. Of course picking up players like Jackson and Anderson would be huge acquisitions for the team, but I think...

One-on-One with Lardarius Webb

LardariusWebb_close_up
This week, I had the great privilege to ask Baltimore’s own CB Lardarius Webb a few questions! Now, all Ravens fans know that Webb is one of the most highly coveted free agents this offseason. (If you don’t, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?) Webb leaving Charm City would be one of the worst outcomes of the Free Agency period for Baltimore. Multiple sources have speculated that the Patriots are very interested in Webb. It makes sense considering that the Patriots defense is PITIFUL. But let’s be honest here, reading this article...

Catching up with Qadry Ismail

Qadry_Ismail
Earlier this week, I had the great privilege to interview former Ravens great WR Qadry Ismail. Thanks to Qadry for taking the time! I hope you enjoy this interview: Joe Wedra: Who was your inspiration as a young player? Qadry Ismail: I really looked up to a few guys in my youth… Here’s two that stood out… I loved the play of Earl Campbell from the Houston Oilers. I thought I was going to be like him when I grew up; also, Michael Jordan and his competitive will really inspired...

Stuck with Cameron AGAIN!

While the image of Billy Cundiff’s kick going wide left is still in my head every time I close my eyes, the pain has worn off a bit. Will it ever completely leave my mind? Probably not, but as a true fan I must move on. So many changes have to happen that will be crucial to the structure of the team in 2012. There was one non-move that left me speechless. A coordinator is gone and it is NOT Cam Cameron? I’ve had some time to think about keeping...

So Much Hate!

cundiff_it
So as I get home from an average day, I do what the average teenager does: go on Facebook.  The first image I see is this… Too soon?  HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It’s not funny how much disrespect the Ravens, their fans, and their players get for no apparent reason.  Earlier today, an Eagle fan was anxious to show me his computer background: LaQuan Williams in shock after the miss.  I guess we know what obnoxious fans do when their team sucks… they rub it in the faces of the other 30...

FOR THE TITLE: Ravens @ Patriots

patriots-ravens
It seems like yesterday we opened up the season by beating the CRAP out of Pittsburgh.  Let’s relive that one more time! But now, it’s time to get serious.  We’ve got the AFC Championship game coming up Sunday at 3 pm eastern.  This game will match up the Baltimore Ravens and the New England Pansies/ Patriots.  We get to see two completely different styles of play: offensive and defensive.  Whichever team gets the other to play their style gets the advantage.  KEYS TO THE GAME ·         Eliminate Wes Welker- Wes...

KIDZ KORNER: Divisional Round v. Texans

foster_lewis
Ok… lets be real here. Not only am I writing this blog to give my analysis on Baltimore football, but really I just needed a break from hearing about the Denver Tebows and the miracle maker himself. And just in case you haven’t heard, Tim Tebow led his team to a win against the Pittsburgh Squealers. What an amazing sight, seeing Roethlisberger hobble around on his “injured” ankle and making mistake after mistake. Even better than that sight, seeing Steeler fans everywhere crying into their little yellow towels realizing that...

NFL 2011: A Season in Review

NFL_2011
From the unbeatable Green Bay Packer to the almost winless Colts and all the way through “Tebow Time,” the 2011-2012 NFL regular season will go down as one for the ages.  Each team went through their ups and their downs, whether it was the slow starting Denver Broncos to suddenly heat up and sneak into the playoffs, or the Buffalo Bills starting out as the cream of the crop then just crashing down the stretch.  Each team has their story, now it’s time to grade their performance on the field....

Ravens Playoff Bound!

baltimore-ravens-name-black-480x320
The time has come. The entire NFL breaks down every possible scenario that would place their team in the Playoffs. Few teams know for sure that their team is just plain awful and have no possible playoff hope this year, or many years to come. (i.e. the Browns). The fact is that 21 of the 32 teams still have a shot at the playoffs and as the weeks go on, this number continues to slim. This year the Ravens will make the playoffs for the 4th straight year under Coach...

KIDS KORNER: Memo to Coach Harbaugh

memo2
What a crazy and unpredictable year it has been for the Ravens in 2012. We beat the Steelers in Week 1 by 28 points and later in the year, we didn’t convert a first down against an AWFUL Jaguars team until past the midway point of the 3RD QUARTER! How does that happen? Losses to Tennessee, Jacksonville, and Seattle are just unacceptable. Winning just one, just ONE of those games would put us 9-2 and looking for our 10th win against a team with no logo. (What is a Brown...

KIDZ KORNER: Man with a plan for Ravens @ Steelers

Mike_Wallace_Lardarius_Webb
Hold your breath, count to ten and drink a glass of warm water!  Wait, that cures hiccups, not the anxiety that fans will be feeling Sunday night in Pittsburgh.  Last time we faced Pittsburgh, we gave them an absolute shellacking.  The score was 35-7, and now the Squeelers are seeking revenge.  If we beat the Steelers again, we have bragging rights for the year, and if we don’t, we’re in trouble.  It’s funny how when we win the Steelers act like it’s no big deal, but when they win, they...

INTERVIEW: Ravens O-Line Coach Todd Washington

Todd_Washington
Earlier this week I had an opportunity to interview Assistant Offensive Line Coach for the Ravens, Todd Washington. Below is the interview that I wanted to share with all of you: What are the greatest challenges you face as an offensive line coach? There’s a great deal of challenges that you face when it comes to coaching offensive line. The biggest one is the task of getting 5 men, not just football players, but five men, that learn differently, to work together and play for each other. This is the...

KIDZ KORNER: Here’s the plan v. Cardinals

fitz_v_ravens
John – Hey Cam, can I talk to you? Cam- Sure, what is it? John – Come to my office, and bring your playbook.  Wouldn’t the above dialogue make the dreams of most Raven fans come true?  Dear God last week was awful.  Yes, the Jaguars have a very good defense, but there is no excuse for that kind of embarrassment on national TV!  It seems that every good team we play, we win with ease, but every bad team hands our rear ends to us.  The offense needs to...

KIDZ KORNER: Game Plan v. Jaguars

com_111020nfl_CDDPredict_BAL_JAC
Ah, the sweet sight of a sellout crowd at a football stadium right before kickoff!  Too bad there isn’t going to be one of those on Monday Night!  The Jacksonville Tarps will be seen as an almost empty stadium will watch the Jaguars get owned by the Ravens.  Remember how the Jaguars were almost OUR expansion team?  I think we made out ok Baltimore!  This should be an easy game however, we cannot allow the Tennessee game to repeat itself.  We cannot afford to be embarrassed on national television.  The...

KIDZ KORNER: Coach Harbs, you have some ‘splain’ to do

john-harbaugh1
Well… it was a good game Sunday, But not great. Very average is how we played against a very average team. From the first snap until about 5 minutes in Quarter 4, I was concerned. I had horrible flashbacks of the Ravens epic collapse last year in Houston on Monday Night Football. It’s a good thing that they pulled it out because certainly we Ravens fans would not exactly be happy with Coach Harbaugh and our Baltimore Ravens. Going into another primetime game versus Jacksonville, (A hopefully easy game), we...

Beating the Texans, a very simple plan!

rice_TD
This is the week for the Ravens to make a statement.  Houston is coming to town on Sunday, and they are coming with several injuries that will impact their entire season.  Andre Johnson is out indefinitely, Super Mario is on IR, and Schaub is banged up.  If Schaub gets hit with any force at all, he’s done, and Lefty Leinart gets to play QB.  On Offense Cam needs to reestablish the identity of the Ravens.  We run to set up the pass, not pass and then pass some more.  The...

KIDZ KORNER: Spell Jets M-E-S-S!

jets
Faith has been restored in Baltimore and the Lord has been praised, the Ravens have rebounded against the Rams.  Many doubters after the disgusting game in Tennessee have had their faith restored.  Against the Jets, the Ravens will capitalize and will hand the Jets a humiliating loss.  In the end, the J-E-T-S will be a M-E-S-S MESS MESS MESS!!!!!!! On Offense On offense, keep doing what you were doing against the Rams.  The Jets have declined since last year on defense, and cannot get any pass rush against anyone unless...

KIDZ KORNER: 5 Things I Want to See Tomorrow

tandon_doss
Weeks 1 and 2 were TOTALLY opposite. One week you steam-roll over your arch-rival Pittsburgh, the next you lose embarrassingly to a simply average team. Many say not to panic and many say it is a huge reason to panic. Personally, I don’t think there is a need to panic. That is… if we win on Sunday at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis. Here are 5 things that the Ravens NEED to do to give Ravens Nation a big sigh of relief and of course, the team a...

KIDZ KORNER: Game Planning for Titans

CJ_v_Ravens
Can we all agree that last week was the single greatest thing we have ever seen?  I mean really, who would’ve thought we’d demolish Pittsburgh the way we did.  Personally, I pick the score to be 17-14, and couldn’t come up with a winner.  In week 2, the Ravens travel to Tennessee to take on the less than formidable Titans.  The Titans are coming off a loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars, led by Luke McCown, who hadn’t started a game since 2007.  Priority number 1 for the Ravens in this...
