FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Best Plays in Ravens History (Part V)

Jermaine Lewis (84) of the Baltimore Ravens return
The topic of the best plays in Ravens history is one that has been debated in pubs throughout the Land of Pleasant Living and as time goes on, the list of plays will change and the debate could become even livelier. In June of 2008 we put together our list of the Best Plays in Ravens History. During the previous editions of Flashback Friday we revisited the plays ranked 3 through 10. Today we conclude with the two plays arguably the best – at least in 2008. Clearly if we...

FAN’S CHOICE: Baltimore Ravens All-Time Team, Guard

Screenshot 2014-07-10 08.29.27
The Baltimore Ravens haven’t been known as a team that has consistent offensive line play and over the years few have made the trip across the pond to Honolulu. Today we will focus on the Ravens All-Time greatest guards. We’ve heard it said often that Ozzie Newsome prefers to spend the team’s money and high draft picks on players who touch the ball or the quarterback. That’s not a description for guard. The list below is admittedly thin and is an indictment on the team’s historical lack of attention given...

Might Le’Ron McClain Draw The Ravens’ Interest?

Leron mcclain
With training camp around the bend, roster spots are jammed pack with camp bodies, all of which are hoping to impress enough this summer to earn a spot on an NFL roster, particularly the Ravens roster. On the flip side of the young guns vying for roster spots are those veteran players that have yet to find a team to call home. Call them insurance polices if you will — ready to step in and assist any way they can, providing liability coverage at the position if someone catches the injury...

SLOGAN CONTEST: Help us Pick a Winner!

Play Like a Raven
Ok, I know what you’re thinking… “Haven’t you guys beaten this topic to death?” A valid criticism. Yet our blog on the topic inspired some worthy suggestions from fans of our Facebook page and on this blog. So I said to myself… “Self, what if we run a contest to include the best of the suggestions?” Our staff picked out what seemed to be the 10 slogans that received the most positive feedback either in the blog comments or Facebook comments and likes. Here are those 10… From Facebook Jason...

Which Former Ravens Would You Welcome Back Home?

I’ve never liked LeBron James. He’s been coddled since the day I first heard of him and probably since well before that. I’ve never liked the sports fans of Cleveland. They whine more than the sirens in Baltimore City and in that regard, James and Cleveland seemed like a perfect pairing. But the apparent match made in heaven didn’t last as long as expected. Even the Akron, OH (40 miles from Cleveland) native skipped out of town, opting for the sexy and chic South Beach in an obnoxious and embarrassing...

Do Ravens And Orioles Fans Share One Heartbeat?

One Heartbeat
There was a time when I thought Ravens fans and Orioles fans were one and the same, give or take 5% or so. I considered Baltimore “One Heartbeat” when it came to the two major league teams in town. Now, I’m not so sure. Take that back – now I seriously doubt it! When we post Ravens-related content on our Orioles 247 Facebook page, there’s push back from some Redskins fans and believe it or not, Orioles fans who root for the Steelers. When we post Orioles-related content on our...

Ravens March to The Beat of Balance in 2014

Bisciotti Mini Camp 728
It likely wasn’t luck that the Ravens were able to bring in some premier players after the first barrage of free agency. It took a bit more than that to fulfill Ozzie Newsome’s grand scheme. Reeling in guys like Steve Smith, Jeremy Zuttah, and even Justin Forsett weren’t just “helpful additions” that look good big-picture. They were more than just tokens of the free agency process. Each move was the result of hard work and planning. And when it all boils down, every addition the Ravens made was getting both...

FAN’S CHOICE: Baltimore Ravens All-Time Team, Cornerback

Screenshot 2014-07-07 16.42.22
Ozzie Newsome is on record saying often, “You can never have enough good corners.” And in the modern era of the NFL the declaration is even more valid. During their 18-year history the Baltimore Ravens have had their fair share of solid corners. Today we’ll take a look back at a list that includes a few major talents who played the position for the purple and black as well as some complementary players who served as very solid nickel corners. From this list we’ll ask you to select 6 for...

Ravens Look to Get Running Game Back on Track

O Line
The Ravens rushing attack was in dire need of an overhaul after the 2013 season. Setting all time lows in offensive output, the Ravens found themselves on the outside looking in once the NFL postseason began for the first time under head coach John Harbaugh. Just how bad was the Ravens’ ground attack? As a team, the Ravens combined for just 1,328 yards on the ground in 2013 averaging just 83 yards per game. To put that into perspective at truly how bad their running game was, Philadelphia Eagles running...

Trade of McClain Not Such a Steal After All

Rolando McClain Cowboys
When the Ravens traded retired linebacker Rolando McClain to Dallas earlier this week, it seemed Ozzie Newsome had pulled off a heist, gaining a sixth-round draft pick for a player who has retired twice in the past year, never played a down for the Ravens and has said he was “done” with football. But the trade is not as one-sided as originally thought. In fact, it’s clear that the Cowboys were aware of McClain’s history, and put plenty of conditions on the deal that turns it into a no-risk proposition...

Ways to Improve The Fan Experience at NFL Stadiums

Fans
The NFL may soon be forced to navigate unchartered waters – filling NFL stadiums. As costs for tickets continue to climb; concessions carry gaudy profits; parking fees spiral upward; traffic bottlenecks after games challenge one’s sanity; queuing into the stadium is borderline ridiculous; and bathroom lines force you to miss big chunks of the game, fans are beginning to question the value to live games. Is the juice worth the squeeze? Meanwhile watching games at home not only represents dramatic savings, the viewing experience is infinitely better with the advent...

FAN’S CHOICE: Ravens All-Time Team, Running Back

We continue our pursuit of the Baltimore Ravens All-Time team. So far we have touched down on the positions of center and safety. The plan is to carry only one center and hope that one of the guards we select has the ability to fill in at center. We’ll ask your help selecting those guards in a subsequent piece. As for center it appears from the voting thus far that Matt Birk remains the overwhelming favorite. At safety we will carry three and so far the preferred choices are Ed...

FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Thanksgiving in July

July 4 Baltimore
Originally posted on July 4, 2011   I remember as a kid there was always a buzz about the Fourth of July. The energy, the positive karma, the celebratory atmosphere combined to create riveting electricity during this most festive of summer days. There were the backyard barbeques, the trips to the Rosedale Cabana Club or maybe even a family gathering at Beaver Dam or a trip to Ocean City. All of the Moms seemed to effortlessly orchestrate the day’s activities as they bunkered down alongside the picnic tables with reclining...
