Ravens 53-man Roster Forecast 1.0

temp072814_StadiumPractice_0529--nfl_mezz_1280_1024
With two weeks of training camp firmly in the books along with the Ravens first preseason game of the year, Dev Panchwagh and I are putting on our General Manager and head coaching hats as we forecast the Ravens 53-man roster. The next few weeks will prove to be pivotal for as many as 40 players unless they do something between now and August 26 when the team will make their first cuts.   OFFENSE Quarterbacks (2) In: Joe Flacco, Tyrod Taylor Practice Squad: Keith Wenning NOTES: While the Ravens...

CAMP NOTES: 49ers Offense vs. Ravens Defense

Jernigan
The last day of practice between the Ravens and the 49ers was a lightly contested affair, as the teams worked out in shells and shorts. In the case of Steve Smith, he opted for sweatpants. Still, there was enough action to gauge the individual matchups between the two teams. Here are some of the biggest impressions from the battles that took place between the Baltimore defense and the San Francisco offense: • Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has a cannon for an arm and can fit throws into spots where the defense...

Preseason 2014: What we Know, What we Don’t

Chykie Brown Asa Jackson
Through one preseason game and most of training camp, there is still plenty of unsettled business en route to the Baltimore Ravens cutting the roster down to 53 players by August 30. Along with finding the right 53 players comes finding the right roles for the lucky ones to still be Ravens when the calendar turns to September. Thursday’s preseason opener did offer some clarity at some key positions, and there are some things we know with less than a month until the regular season. There’s also plenty that we...

CAMP NOTES: Kaepernick praises Flacco, Suggs

temp080914_TC_49ers_Practice_6475--nfl_mezz_1280_1024
“Iron sharpens iron” has been the phrase of the last three days as the Ravens hosted the 49ers for their first ever joint practice in the organization’s history. Each team embraced the same goal — to get better! “You could never replicate … I feel like we had a week-plus worth of work in, and it’s not just because of the tempo or the attention to detail, which is part of it. It’s the fact that you see schemes that you’re not going to see,” head coach John Harbaugh stated...

CAMP NOTES: Smith Lets His Play, Not Fists do The Talking

tempRavens49ers080714sh10--nfl_mezz_1280_1024
The Ravens offense ended their three day joint practice with the San Francisco 49ers on a good note keeping the heavily vaunted 49ers defense guessing, a feat not cheapened by the fact that both teams were in shorts and shells. Gary Kubiak’s heavy utilization of the tight end position was on full display throughout practice as Owen Daniels, Crockett Gillmore and Phillip Supernaw were all on the receiving end of multiple passes from all three Ravens quarterbacks. Fan favorite Dennis Pitta (ankle) returned to practice after sitting out on Sunday...

CAMP NOTES: Ravens Rookie Defenders Stay Busy

tempRavens49ers080714sh02--nfl_mezz_1280_1024
The Baltimore Ravens wrapped up the last of their three joint practices with the 49ers on Monday under sunny skies at the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills. Today’s practice had a much different feel to it than the last two days as both teams were donned in shorts and shells more like an OTA practice than the end of week two of training camp.Perhaps it was yesterday’s season ending injury to defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore or both teams were drained from two days of non stop competing against...

TALE OF THE TAPE: Williams Shines in 2014 Debut

Brandon Williams
The first dress rehearsal of the 2014 season for the Baltimore Ravens offered several bright spots, particularly on defense. In a collective effort to allow only three points, strong performances by Asa Jackson and C.J. Mosley, among others, capped off a positive first showing. But one player stood above the rest in his 2014 debut: second-year nose tackle Brandon Williams. A true two-gap nose tackle whose playing time was limited as a rookie, Williams’ role with the team this year became more clear on Thursday night against the San Francisco...

CAMP NOTES: Taliaferro Shines, Pass Protection Stays Solid

p
On a day that saw the Ravens defense take hit with injuries, the offense made it through without incident. Tight end Dennis Pitta was held out of practice for precautionary reasons that head coach John Harbaugh described to be a “tweak of his leg” sustained during yesterday’s first of three joint practices with the San Francisco 49ers. Also sitting out practice on Sunday was backup right guard Ryan Jensen, who was banged up during an 11-on-11 series on Saturday. Jensen did return to practice after missing just a few series...

CAMP NOTES: Defense Loses 2 to Injury, 1 for Season

Kapron Lewis Moore
The Ravens wrapped up their second of three joint practices with the 49ers on Sunday under sunny skies at the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills. “Iron sharping iron” continued as the Ravens are six days away from their second preseason game when they take on the Cowboys in Dallas. Donned in pads for the second straight day, unfortunately, injuries, not on-field play, were the big story today. Cornerback Asa Jackson limped off the field with trainers in the middle of practice with what appeared to be a right...

Ravens Offense Keeps on Rolling

temp080914_TC_49ers_Practice_4152--nfl_mezz_1280_1024
Quarterback Joe Flacco looked sharp on Saturday evenly distributing the football while keeping the 49ers defensive backfield a bit off-balance. The Ravens signal caller set comfortably and generally delivered the ball quickly and on time. His only struggles seemed to take place when a play’s timing was disrupted and he pulled the ball down with the hopes of creating a play. Flacco’s receivers are not quite on the same page when that happens in the way that Ben Roethlisberger’s receivers know to keep plays alive when their quarterback breaks contain....

Concerns Mount Around the Ravens Defense

temp080914_TC_49ers_Practice_4055--nfl_mezz_1280_1024
A buzz was in the air as the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers warmed up to prepare for their cross-continent practice partners. This would be no ordinary day of training camp. The same drills, the same 7-on-7 routines, the same 1-on-1’s that by this time during the summer have become as mundane and boring as ESPN’s and NFL Network’s excessively redundant coverage of Johnny Manziel, just weren’t the same – in a good way. These athletes with a heightened sense of focus ushered in by the flow of competitive...

Ravens Headquarters Painted 49ers Red

temp080814_UAPC_Transformations_112--nfl_mezz_1280_1024
Before “The Turk” makes his first rounds during summer camp to trim rosters from 90 to 75, the Under Armour Performance Center at One Winning Drive can get pretty crowded. More players, more assistants to the coaching staff, more interns and more media makes Baltimore Ravens headquarters a pretty crowded place. Even the locker rooms are equipped with temporary lockers leaving it with the appearance of a sporting goods store under renovation. On Saturday afternoon The Castle that Steve Bisciotti built hosted more king’s horses and more king’s men than...

CAMP NOTES: Elam, Secondary Struggle vs. 49ers

suggs49erspractice
The Ravens’ first string secondary certainly didn’t have their best day of practice on Saturday as the Ravens and 49ers kicked off their first of three joint practices between the two teams. 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick feasted on the Ravens defensive backfield, taking advantage of both Chykie Brown and second-year player Matt Elam. Elam was beaten on several plays across the middle of the field by the big-bodied 49er receiving unit. Brown had another up and down day at the office, giving up some long pass plays but came up...

The Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers kicked off their first of three joint practices together under sunny conditions at the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills on Saturday. With both teams donning full pads, practice began with joint warm-ups before players broke down in to individual drills with their respective teams. The Ravens’ first team offense picked up where they left off on Thursday night, moving the ball with ease against the 49ers first team defense. While neither team was hitting hard it was easy to see...

This Week on Russell Street

Some of you may be familiar with This Week in Baseball, a recap of the goings on in Major League Baseball. It’s a convenient way to catch up on things you may have missed. Borrowing from that concept, we will do the same here for the Baltimore Ravens with a new feature called This Week on Russell Street (creative, right?) Without further ado (not adieu)… FILMSTUDY The Ravens 23-3 win over the San Francisco 49ers during their 2014 Preseason Opener impressed many. But Ken McKusick, aka “Filmstudy”, is a difficult...

Impressive Signs Abound for Ravens in Preseason Opener

It was a night of reunions, debuts, and surprises at M&T Bank Stadium on Thursday night as the Ravens were able to run all over the 49ers, 23-3. John Harbaugh was able to advance his NFL record against his brother in NFL play to 3-0 as his “mighty men” impressed taking the big stage for the first time in 2014. Here’s a look at what we learned in all three phases of the game last night: OFFENSE Smooth sailing for Kubiak’s debut There’s no reason to believe anyone will take...

Observations from Ravens/49ers: Defense/Special Teams

49ersravenspreseason
An improved offense grabbed the headlines for the Baltimore Ravens in their preseason-opening win against the San Francisco 49ers, and rightfully so, but the defense didn’t disappoint either. The three points allowed came against San Francisco’s first-team offense, and having the benefit of facing Blaine Gabbert for most of the game facilitated the end result of not allowing another score after the first drive. Plenty can be taken away from the performances of the defense and special teams, both good and bad. 1. C.J. Mosley was as advertised in his...

First Drive Leaves a Lot to Be Excited About

Bernard Pierce Preseason TD
You can’t read too much into preseason football. Coordinators only show a watered down version of their actual game plan, in an effort to reveal as little as possible to the rest of the league. Some starters are held out for precautionary reasons, which was the case for the 49ers defense last night, and we only get a glimpse of the first team players that do see action. With that said, the cameo that the Ravens first team offense made last night gave Ravens Nation several reasons to be excited...

FILMSTUDY: Wagner, Others Impress in Preseason Opener

skutaflacco
Expectations for Gary Kubiak’s new offense were high, but the results were everything Ravens fans could have hoped. The offensive line led a dominating effort that resulted in a 77-46 (kneels included for emphasis) advantage in offensive snaps against the 49ers.  Let’s take a while to break that down. For the preseason, I find it helpful to record the offensive linemen by series.  I didn’t notice any mid-series changes, but these are the 5 offensive linemen for the first play of each series.  Play totals exclude penalties and kneels. Some notes on...
