Ravens enter full-contact stage of 2014 TC with optimism and relief…

The relief for Ravens fans is nobody got beat up too badly in the first full-contact practice sessions. The optimism is about how Joe Flacco seems to have grasped the new offensive system installed by OC Gary Kubiak. Another point of optimism— Ricky Wagner has looked pretty good so far at right tackle—and he’s been […]


Ravens spotlight on Bernard Pierce as Rice gets 2-game suspension…

Your starting running back for the Baltimore Ravens in 2014 (at least for the first two games of the season) will be Bernard Pierce, the 6-0, 218 lb., 3rd-year veteran out of Temple who was drafted in the 3rd round in 2012. That’s because the NFL handed down a 2-game suspension on the incumbent first-team […]


John Harbaugh’s 7th Ravens Training Camp will be his toughest….

The Ravens players know what’s coming— John Harbaugh is not a happy camper this year. After failing to make the playoffs in 2013, there will be hell to pay this summer in training camp. In the best of times Harbaugh is a believer in breaking down players to build them up in TC. This summer […]


A Tale of Two Terrence’s as Ravens prepare for TC…

For rookie free safety Terrence Brooks, it is the best of times as the Ravens get set to open Training Camp 2014 this coming week. Brooks has a legitimate shot to win a starting job opposite Matt Elam in the Ravens’ secondary. For 5th-year DT Terrence Cody who is in the final year of his […]

Ravens open up M&T Bank Stadium for a public practice with 49ers…

The Ravens announced on Tuesday they are making another practice open to the public— this time at M&T Bank Stadium on Friday, August 8, beginning at 1:00 P.M. EST. What makes this unique is it comes a day after the Ravens host the San Francisco 49ers in a Thursday night exhibition game—and it’s a joint […]


The ESPN Insiders just don’t get how good Joe Flacco really is…

No offense intended to ESPN, but they’re not the only ones in the media who fail to grasp the true value of having a franchise QB like Joe Flacco. As Sarah Ellison observed in her July 3rd “Late For Work” column at BaltimoreRavens.com, ESPN’s Mike Sando polled 26 anonymous insiders – eight general managers, two […]


News from the Far Side of the Ravens—you can’t make this stuff up!

There’s a Ravens iPhone case out (see photo) this summer which looks pretty cool. It’s far out, but not the far side of today’s breaking Ravens news— I don’t know how Ozzie pulled this one out of the hat, but the Ravens managed to trade the rights to the “retired” Rolando McClain to the Dallas […]


Midsummer night’s Raven dream as fans head danny ayshun….

This is the twilight zone time of the offseason when the Ravens PR Department really earns their paychecks. There is almost no hard Ravens news to report on July 1, 2014, and most Ravens fans (as well as some players) have headed en masse down to the Maryland and Delaware shores. Give credit to BaltimoreRavens.com, […]


Ravens close to salary cap limit…and a look at their dead money…

The end of June (with a full roster of 90 players signed prior to training camp) is always a good time to review a team’s salary cap situation—and also a good time to count the “dead money”. There’s always some disagreement among the experts who follow the Ravens’ salary cap, but if you take the […]


Ravens head into 5-week break with two new cornerbacks…

Dominique Franks (free agent from Atlanta) is signed to the Ravens roster along with Aaron Ross (formerly of the Giants and Jags) to compete for that 3rd corner position in the Ravens secondary. I mention Franks first because I believe he has the best chance of winning the opening day “starting” nickelback among the other […]


Ravens minicamp fast and furious in the heat…

(Photos by Patrick Semansky of Yahoo.com) John Harbaugh has noticeably picked up the pace of practice at this year’s edition of Ravens mandatory minicamp, which so far has been held in 95 degree(F.)heat, and with some heated emotion thrown in to boot. Faster pace drills with blaring musical background is the “hot” new trend in […]


The Ravens Buzz about Brandon Flowers…

Brandon Flowers, who may have been the Kansas City Chiefs’ best cornerback all-around, is suddenly available, and there’s a lot of buzz in Baltimore about reaching out to the 28-year-old veteran. Flowers is 5-9, 187, and he was drafted out of Virginia Tech in the 4th Round (2007). He covers mostly in the slot. He’s […]
