Ravens 2015 Training Camp is in full bloom…

You probably couldn’t train in any worse weather for football than what the Baltimore heat and humidity gave to Ravens players in the first week of full-team camp. Maybe the discomfort is a good thing in the long run. But don’t tell that to cornerback Lardarius Webb—he failed his  conditioning test. I bet the soup-like […]


QB’s and Rookies report to Ravens Camp as Terrence Brooks goes to PUP list…

A bittersweet beginning to 2015 Ravens Training Camp as rookies and quarterbacks reported for their physicals and their conditioning tests this past Sunday—young safety Terrence Brooks and veteran TE Dennis Pitta were placed on the “Physically Unable to Perform” list. That means Brooks and Pitta will be ineligible to return to active roster status for […]


Ravens fans react to Dennis Pitta’s probable PUP list fate…

You couldn’t ask to meet a nicer guy than Dennis Pitta. He should be entering the 6th year of his career as a receiving TE in his physical prime. But coming back from his second hip fracture in the previous two years is going to be problematic. Pitta meant a lot to Joe Flacco’s offense […]


Reggie Wayne a Raven? I don’t think so….

Reggie Wayne might have been a good idea as a receiver for the Ravens about three years ago— but not now. My guess is his agent has put out a rumor claiming that the Ravens and the Patriots are interested in signing his client. I was ready to put out a short essay on why […]


Preview of Ravens depth chart going into 2015 Training Camp…

News is pretty thin right now as Ravens fans wait about two more weeks for training camp activities to open. If you look around the daily newspapers and the approximately 30 various Ravens fan blogs, you may find yourself chuckling at some of the stretch angles as writers cope with the deadest part of the […]


Brandon Williams is the best Ravens defensive tackle you never heard of…

One of the nicer consequences of the Ravens’ trade of their veteran all-star defensive tackle Haloti Ngata to the Detroit Lions this offseason is that fans will get to appreciate Brandon Williams a whole lot more. Williams is really good. He anchored the defensive line rotation last season. He was so stout in the middle […]


The tough questions for Ravens during summer vacation…

A few more weeks of vacay for the Ravens players and coaches—then the hard questions must be asked and a plan put in place. Hardcore Ravens fan Dom McRaven responded to an “NFL Live” segment on ESPN in which the panelists talked about who would win the AFC North. Jim Trotter chose the Bengals, while […]


Ten cornerbacks will compete for 5, maybe 6 spots on Ravens final roster…

Garrett Downing over at has a nice series going on positional roster competition for the Ravens coming up in 2015 training camp. In a recent look at the cornerback candidates, Downing broke down the list of competitors—some veterans, some coming back from injury, some 2nd-year and 3rd-year hopefuls, and a rookie: Returning Players Jimmy […]


Baltimore Ravens Fall In Top-10 For Most Travel Miles For 2015 NFL Season

The Baltimore Ravens are heading into training camp with the same head coach and quarterback that they’ve had since 2008, as John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco will look to add to their already-stellar resumes. After a deflating loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Divisional Round, the Ravens are gearing up to go […]


The good, bad and weird news from Ravens mandatory minicamp…

The good news is WR Steve Smith Sr. looks like he’s 27 years old again instead of pushing 36 !!! Steve is flying around the field out there in the heat and really getting on the offensive-team rookies for not keeping up with his pace in practice. It’s funny in a way, but when he […]


Radar Love for Ravens players as June OTA’s wrap up…

Man it’s been a hot and humid week as the Ravens bring their June OTA sessions to a close. But the good news for Ravens fans is there have been no significant injuries thus far and their veteran players have reported in excellent conditioning for the most part. There is a great Ravens/Orioles blog called […]


Random construction notes on 2015 Ravens in early June…

Looks like kicker Justin Tucker will get the Franchise Tag contract next season. For a kicker, the NFL Franchise value is $4.45 million in the tagged season. The Ravens can’t afford to extend Tucker’s rookie contract this season because all the dough is budgeted to help extend Kelechi Osemele’s contract in 2015. But the Ravens […]


Steve Smith #54 in NFLN’s Top 100 Players List…

It’s a nice honor and sign of respect for Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith to be voted by his peers as high as 54th in the Top 100 Players Poll—even moreso because Smith was left off the list last year, and he is now 36 years old. Here’s a 4-minute video recap of the NFLN […]
