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 analyst to impress. Get his take on the game and the grades he dished out for the individual performances.

ON THE 5′S

RECON MISSION

The first goal of any team in the NFL is to win their division and the Ravens are no exception. They’ll look to reclaim their crown in the AFC North but to do so they’ll have to knock off some formidable opponents. We go Behind Enemy Lines to catch up with the Bengals, Browns and the team in Northern West Virginia.

A PRIMARY CONCERN

This offseason perhaps the most commonly asked question amongst Ravens fans was, “What will the Ravens do at right tackle?” But really the more important question is, “What will Ozzie do to improve the quality of depth in the secondary?” Here’s why…

WE TALKIN’ ABOUT PRACTICE?

Many fans, once they’ve had the opportunity to see a preseason game, will quickly draw conclusions about the progress of individual players. But is that fair? Can one game with a limited amount of snaps really give you the complete picture of each player’s progress?
