Marc Trestman will make Joe Flacco a Pro Bowler

As I mentioned in a recent article, “The ‘Wacko’ nickname has eventually taken a toll on Joe Flacco’s reputation,” as he’s yet to receive the credit that he deserves. Other than the in-house support in which Flacco gets from the Baltimore Ravens, it’s no mystery that Flacco is still viewed as a less than elite quarterback in the NFL. That could all change quickly though...

Can Justin Forsett repeat 2014 success?

Coming off of a 2014 season where he set career highs in numerous categories including rushing yards (1,266), touchdowns (8), games started (14) and catches (44), Justin Forsett has found a permanent home in Baltimore. The question is can Justin Forsett repeat his 2014 success? Justin Forsett was a very good back coming out of college but perhaps was overlooked due to his size (5’8″...

Watch how this Baltimore Ravens rookie hit the ground running today at OTAs (video)

Most can’t fathom the fact that Baltimore Ravens rookie outside linebacker Za’Darius Smith once viewed football as his “backup plan.” Smith’s original plan was to play basketball given his success at the high school level. In high school, he was one of the tallest kids on the basketball court as a center and was known for his rebounding and his ability to dunk over his...

Joe Flacco might have just found his next consistent target (video)

Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Breshad Perriman had the skills to pay the bills as a speedy and big bodied receiver at Central Florida, but it was one thing in particular that he lacked; a quality quarterback – a kryptonite for any promising receiver. Well, that will not be the case for Perriman as a Raven. He should be thanking the football gods for landing him in a spot...

What can you find about Ravens in 10 days of OTA’s?

The Baltimore Ravens kicked off 10 days of OTA’s (Organized Team Activities) this Tuesday— no real contact, but plenty of real competition, if you get my drift. But what can you really find about about the 2015 Ravens from such relatively casual workouts? John Eisenberg had some ideas about that. Eisenberg is an established journalist and author who happens to hold down the...

Joe Flacco, Excellent and Under-Appreciated

When it comes to ranking quarterbacks, Joe Flacco is one of the more polarizing names in the NFL. Analysts either love the Ravens signal caller or they don’t, there is no middle ground as he divides the NFL community. Since entering the league, Flacco has had to prove himself from day one as he was not touted as the next great passer like Andrew Luck. There was not much respect...

Baltimore Ravens Rookie Robert Myers Likes His New Nickname More Than His Old One

Baltimore Ravens rookie offensive lineman Robert Myers is a big ole boy standing 6'5" and weighing in at 326 pounds. Chances are he has always been a big ole boy so throughout his life he was probably called all sorts of things; some flattering, some not so much. As for the ones that stuck--it depends on how catchy they were.He had one in college that his coaches gave him, but he...

Unlike math genius Urschel, Ravens' Harbaugh expects more two-point conversions

Ravens coach John Harbaugh thinks longer extra point this season will lead to more two-point conversions, but he may want to consult with one of his offensive lineman first. "It is going to encourage more two-point conversion tries," Harbaugh said Thursday per The Baltimore Sun. "There's no question about it, especially in windy stadiums. Maybe later in the year when it means the...

Marshal Yanda makes Top 100 Players List again—and a quick look at Ravens salary cap…

Marshal Yanda is the only guard named in the Top 100 Players List this year at NFLN… 9th-year Ravens offensive guard Marshal Yanda is still held in high regard by his fellow players around the league.

Baltimore Ravens: How Breshad Perriman will make an impact

Breshad Perriman, the 6’2”, 212 pound newly acquired Baltimore Ravens receiver out of UCF, turned heads and sent his draft stock soaring upwards when he recorded a 4.2 second 40-yard dash at his pro day. Despite this, numerous scouts thought his time was all hype and labeled him as one of the most overvalued draftees of the 2015 class. Perrmian has the rare combination of size...

Domestic violence charges dismissed against Ray Rice

It sure does pay to have money in the American justice system. Even after a surveillance video in a hotel at a New Jersey hotel caught former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking his then fiancee, Janay Palmer, unconscious, the 28-year-old Rice will not have a record as a domestic abuser. As part of a pretrial intervention agreement, Rice satisfied the court’s terms...

Justin Tucker has Interesting Take on Move of PAT to 15-Yard Line

Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker knows the pressure of making field goals when the outcome of the game is at stake. Now that the PAT will be attempted from the 15-yard line, this makes it PAT essentially a 33-yard field goal. Tucker has never missed a kick shorter than 37 yards during his three years in the NFL. In fact, he is 110 for 110 from that range. Speaking up on how...

Baltimore Ravens sign CB Kyle Arrington

The Patriots cut Kyle Arrington earlier this week, voiding the 6.5 million in non-guaranteed money over 2 years remaining on his contract. It was a weird move, as Arrington was a valuable slot cornerback for them, grading out above average in 4 straight seasons, including 21st in 2013, and the Patriots had already lost their starting cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner...

Ravens make savvy pickup by signing CB Kyle Arrington…

Ozzie Newsome wasn’t kidding when he said he was going to add more cornerbacks to the Ravens roster. Kyle Arrington is a quality veteran corner who specializes in the slot but can cover outside, too. When the Patriots balked at extending Arrington’s contract for the $4 million he expected to make in 2015, they let him walk. In swooped Ozzie and within 40 hours Arrington was...
