Matt Schaub gets his call of duty as Joe Flacco prepares for surgery…

It’s Matt Schaub’s turn to play “Next Man Up” for the injury-plagued Ravens… An MRI confirmed that Flacco has a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee. He will undergo surgery on both ligaments as soon as the swelling goes down, which won’t be within the week. Once Flacco has surgery, he’ll jump into […]


Ravens mix up their personnel in desperate attempt to beat Rams…

It’s hard for Ravens fans to imagine that it’s hard to imagine the Ravens beating the Rams this Sunday… But there you have it. It’s a conundrum. At 2-7 the Ravens are lost and mired in a swamp of bad breaks and roster depletion. Head coach John Harbaugh is still talking up his team’s chances […]


Rams (4-5) are a tough match for the reeling Ravens (2-7)…

Jeff Fisher’s Rams are better than their record and I don’t have a confident feeling about the Ravens’ improving upon their 1-3 home record this coming Sunday. One big reason is the defensive front of the Rams is actually pretty good—and the Ravens just placed their starting center Jeremy Zuttah on IR (torn pectoral muscle. […]


Ravens owner should grade this year’s team on a curve…

It’s an unusual season when you put 15 players on Injured Reserve (I’m counting first-round draft pick WR Breshad Perriman in that IR category even though officially he’s been on the active roster all year so far), and I think Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti will take note of that. He knows the average IR casualty […]


Ravens find a new way to lose to Jacksonville, 22-20…

The 2015 Baltimore Ravens (now 2-7) are one of the most bad-luck teams I have ever covered. Whatever can go wrong will go wrong.  You expect that kind of feeling from a perennial loser, but these Ravens are used to being in it to win it all. Not this year… Despite some rough patches during […]


Ravens Host Jaguars For Cheapest NFL Tickets On Secondary Market For Week 10

The narratives for a matchup between two 2-6 teams couldn’t be more different. The Jacksonville Jaguars are kicking themselves for losing some close games and not being more involved in the AFC South divisional race, especially after Andrew Luck of the division-leading Colts was announced out for two to six weeks. They’re a team with […]


Beating Jaguars is no sure thing for the Ravens…

In days of yore the Ravens could pretty much count on getting a victory any time they played the Jacksonville Jaguars. Those good old days are now long gone. The Ravens have won six straight home games over Jacksonville, including a 20-12 victory last season when they sacked Blake Bortles eight times. But a funny […]


You’re gonna need a scorecard to identify Ravens the rest of the way…

With nearly a third of the original 2015 roster on Injured Reserve and a bunch of replacements coming and going, the Ravens team personnel is now on a Fly-by-Night discount basis. From here on out starting with the Jacksonville Jaguars at M&T Bank Stadium this Sunday, casual fans of the Ravens might be shocked at […]


Ravens using their Bye week to patch roster…

The theme song for the rest of the Ravens’ injury-marred season should be “Patches” by Clarence Carter from back in the early ’70’s— the key part of the lyrics would be: “Oh, life it kicked him down to the ground When he tried to get up, life would kick him back down One day papa […]


Chargers and Ravens are in the same boat…

The Ravens (1-6 and last in their division) now host the San Diego Chargers (2-5 and last in their division) in Baltimore for a 1:00 P.M. Sunday game. Both teams were expected to make the playoffs this year—and both have been knocked out of the race early. San Diego needs a win on Sunday to […]
