2014 AFC North Preview

Template-112
In six days, M&T Bank Stadium will be rocking as the Ravens begin their 2014 season in front of what is sure to be another sell-out crowd. Four days later, though, Baltimore will play in what is sure to be a highly-emotional, closely-contested prime time match-up against Pittsburgh. From there, they’ll welcome the three extra days to recover as they go on the road to face an up-and-coming Browns team, now under the tutelage of former Ravens outside linebackers coach Mike Pettine. During their first 15 days of the 2014...

Baltimore Loves an Underdog, Starring Fitz Toussaint

NFL: Preseason-Baltimore Ravens at New Orleans Saints
Ravens fans have a long history of rooting for the underdog. We can’t help it, it’s in our blood. Perhaps it’s the blue collar history of Baltimore or the fact that we feel slighted by the good folks in the national media who only focus on the negatives involving our team. Whatever the case may be, there are occasions such as roster cut down day when this becomes a bit too excessive regarding the release of certain players. It happens every year, no one likes to see the organization part...

FILMSTUDY: Ravens Dominate Saints in Finale

nfl-preseason-baltimore-ravens-new-orleans-saints-590x900
By now, you know how much the Ravens dominated Thursday’s game versus the Saints: 79 offensive plays to 38 for the Saints (I believe that is a new team record fewest defensive snaps for any game, besting the 39 from the Wild Card game in 2010 vs. the Chiefs). None of the Saints’ 9 offensive “drives” was longer than 7 plays. Time of possession was 42:39 to 17:21. The Saints were 0-for-8 on 3rd and 4th down as compared to 12-for-20 for the Ravens. Offensive yards were 436 to 190....

Ravens 53-Man Squad: Unfinished Business?

ozzie-wizard-960
OWINGS MILLS — Some of the more interesting aspects of the Ravens’ 53-man roster that was announced Saturday: - Seven wide receivers were kept. Michael Campanaro, Kamar Aiken, and Deonte Thompson all made it. I thought Campanaro would make it for weeks, but I thought the Ravens would choose between Aiken and Thompson. Do the Ravens really need seven wide receivers, in an offense that will also feature two-tight end sets? If somebody wants to trade for Aiken or Thompson, the Ravens will certainly listen. - The cornerback position remains...

Urschel In: “It’s a Dream Come True”

The Ravens faced some tough roster decisions today in regards to putting together their best 53 players who will battle each and every Sunday for their opportunity to win the Lombardi Trophy. As the team begins preparations for their week one match-up, the oft talked about offensive line is set and no one is happier to be a part of the team than rookie John Urschel. “Every team made some tough decisions today, the Ravens no exception,” Urschel stated at the podium on Saturday. “The fact that I’m still here...

Ravens Surprise Release: John Simon

john Simon
How much does the fourth preseason game determine the fate of players on the roster bubble? Apparently not much for second-year linebacker John Simon. Simon, the Ravens fourth round selection in 2013, turned in his best performance of the preseason in the Ravens 22-17 victory over the Saints on Thursday night. In the victory, Simon recorded two tackles and a sack to help the Ravens secure a perfect 4-0 record of preseason football. Perhaps his performance was a case of too little too late for the Ravens decision makers regarding...

FILMSTUDY: Offensive Linemen Control Finale in NOLA

Jensen
With some of the most interesting camp battles taking place on the offensive line, I did full scoring for the last game. All of the OL scoring is based on 76 non-penalty, real offensive snaps, which exclude Wenning’s 3 kneels: Hurst (+1/+5): Scoring: 76 plays, 68 blocks, 5 missed, 1.5 pressures, 1 QH, 62 points (.82 points/play), B. Hurst had a much better game as a run blocker, but took a step back in pass protection, literally. The QH he surrendered to Edebali (Q4, 14:30) included too much ground surrendered...

RAVENS 22, SAINTS 13: 5 Good, 5 Bad Takeaways

Deonte Thompson, Stanley Jean-Baptiste
Although the scoreboard tells a different story, the Baltimore Ravens reserves absolutely dominated the New Orleans Saints last night in the Superdome. There’s a social media phenomenon called Throwback Thursday and the Ravens certainly seemed to be playing along by featuring a smash mouth brand of football. Controlling the clock, running the ball down the throats of the opponent, kicking several field goals and playing solid defense was a formula that worked splendidly in the early 2000’s. It worked again last night and the coaching staff must be extremely pleased...

Ravens at Saints: What we Looked For, What we Saw

-48cec26454d915af
Heading into the Ravens final preseason game we chronicled five things to look for as the Ravens closed out their preseason schedule last night in New Orleans. Here’s a look at how those things played out… 1. GO OUT WIDE: Michael Campanaro only added to his case to make the team and is a lock to stick. It’s possible that he could be the featured punt returner saving Jacoby Jones for more offensive reps and kickoff returns. Camp had 3 catches for 55 yards (he had 21-yard reception called back...

Who’s In?: Final 53-Man Roster Projection

-a3cc95b9c45ca634
The Ravens wrapped up their preseason with a perfect 4-0 record by defeating the Saints 22-13 on Thursday night. More importantly than the win in the preseason finale were the players who were fighting for their spot on the coveted Ravens 53-man roster. Some players did exactly that while others failed to rise to the challenge. Find out who makes the final cut as Dev Panchwagh and I predict the Ravens final 53-man roster. OFFENSE Quarterbacks (2) In: Joe Flacco, Tyrod Taylor Practice squad: Keith Wenning NOTES: No changes to this...

KNEE-JERK REACTIONS: Ravens Run Over Saints 22-13

Baltimore Ravens v New Orleans Saints
Ravens had success running the football in their preseason finale. Taliaferro along with Toussaint were used as workhorses and showed they were up to the task. The wide receiver competition came down to the wire with Aiken, Camp and Thompson all fighting until the end. Second-year linebacker John Simon was all over the field making plays, appears as if he may have done enough to make the 53. The next time we see the Ravens suit up the bullets will be live and the playbook will be open. Harbs will...

Things Just Got Worse For Ray Rice

Goodell Rice
Roger Goodell clearly misunderstood the potential outcry following the two-game suspension given to Ray Rice. I’ve argued that he could have more emphatically stated to the public why he was so lenient with the Ravens running back. He hasn’t. And today he’s done just the opposite and admitted to making a mistake in a letter to the NFL owners. “At times, however, and despite our best efforts, we fall short of our goals. We clearly did so in response to a recent incident of domestic violence. … My disciplinary decision...

Ravens March Into NOLA to Face Unbeaten Saints

Brandin Cooks
As we head into the final preseason game, two of the four remaining unbeaten teams in the NFL this summer will go head-to-head as the Ravens head to NOLA to take on the Saints in the Superdome. This marks the first of two trips to New Orleans for the Ravens who will be back on November 24 for a Monday Night showdown. The Saints offense is looking dynamic as usual and they are coming into tonight’s preseason finale ranked 11th in Rushing Offense (120.3 YPG), 4th in Passing Offense (256.3...

Browns Fans React to Gordon Suspension

gordon
Browns fans have had a rough time over the course of pretty much their entire lives. The team that hasn’t won an NFL Championship since 1964 (which was before the Super Bowl era) heard some more bad news when the ruling on probably their best player, Josh Gordon, was upheld. As you’d expect they weren’t very happy about it. This fan knows the struggle all too well: This one has lower expectations for 2014 than a Browns fan normally would: I can’t imagine this is the first time this guy...

Ravens at Saints: 5 Things to Look For

john Simon
Tonight is game 4 of the preseason and we’ll get to see some Ravens starters in street clothes while some will be MIA, probably enjoying a relaxing evening in Baltimore. The action should be fast and furious although at times reminiscent of the old electric football games with players out of place while communication breakdowns abound. To help sift through the probably chaos, here are five things to look for as the Ravens close out the preseason. 1. GO OUT WIDE: Who will win the battle for the 6th wide...

TALE OF THE TAPE: Can Derek Cox Make The Ravens 53?

Indianapolis Colts v San Diego Chargers
Given the unenviable dilemma the Baltimore Ravens currently have at the cornerback position, the general consensus was that the team would add some new faces to the nest with hopes of finding a castoff turned contributor. The Ravens started that process on Wednesday, signing veteran cornerback Derek Cox, formerly of the Jacksonville Jaguars, San Diego Chargers and most recently, the Minnesota Vikings. A player who only lasted one year into his four-year, $20 million deal with the Chargers and then couldn’t last longer than the first round of cuts with...
