HOLD THE SIZZLE?

Terrell Suggs has been an enigma through the first five games of the 2014 season. His relentless desire to get after opposing quarterbacks is there, but the veteran linebacker has struggled bringing down signal callers, recording just a half of sack, which he shared with counterpart Elvis Dumervil.

OUR LAST TRIP TO THE PIRATE SHIP

The last time the Ravens visited Raymond James Stadium for anything other than fake games was back on September 10, 2006, the very first regular season game the Brian Billick led Ravens played with Steve McNair under center.

Forced to wear their purple in blistering tropical conditions the Ravens returned home with a convincing victory. Here’s how they graded out during the 27-0 win. LINK

WANNA FIGHT?

If the Ravens coordinators pay attention to this and the green dog they’ll come home from Tampa with a “W”!

NO MORE DANCING! UGH!

When the Ravens re-signed wide receiver/kick returner Jacoby Jones during the offseason, the organization figured they would have the best of both worlds when it came to the electrifying playmaker.

It’s safe to assume that the team thought of Jones as a security blanket this season not just on special teams but as part of the Ravens receiving corps as well. But after five games it’s been exactly the opposite for Jones and the Ravens.

Mosley has exceeded all reasonable expectations in his first 5 NFL games and has played so well on instincts and raw talent that it’s difficult to project a ceiling. LINK

CJ HAD A DAY!

What a game Ravens rookie ILB CJ Mosley had last Sunday against the Colts. Here’s a complete breakdown of the game in all of its glorious minutiae. LINK

IN THE YEAR 2013

We are less than 18 months removed from the 2013 NFL Draft, one that produced 10 new Ravens. As of today 5 are on the 2014 53-man roster, 3 have been released, 1 is on the practice squad and the last is on injured reserve. Here’s a look at the class again. How would you grade it? LINK
