Last week I compiled a list that consisted of the 10 best defensive players in Baltimore history. That was not an easy task, as there were probably five other players that could have easily been somewhere in that list as well. This week I compiled a list of the 10 best non-defensive (offense and special teams) players in Baltimore history. This list was just as hard to make, not because they have had a lot of great offensive players in the team’s history, but because they haven’t had many great offensive players. Check out the list below starting at number 10:
10. QB Vinny Testaverde (1996-1997)
If you looked up journeyman in the dictionary there would be a picture of Vinny Testaverde. One of Vinny’s stops during his 21 year career was a two year stint with the Ravens. In 1996 Testaverde threw for a career high 4,177 yards and 33 touchdowns. Testaverde made his first Pro Bowl in 1996, and had one of the best season a quarterback has had wearing the black and purple.

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs questioned the team's offensive game plan following Monday night's 12-7 road loss to Jacksonville.
The Ravens did not have a first down until deep into the third quarter and did not score until 2:02 remained in the game. They managed 11 first downs and 146 total yards.

After the Ravens were upset by the hapless Jaguars on Monday Night Football, linebacker Terrell Suggs was none too pleased, and voiced his displeasure with the team for its lack of usual approach.
Following the game, CSN Baltimore reports that Suggs called out the coaching staff for not utilizing running back Ray Rice more often throughout the contest.
“They kept it simple. Jones...
Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs saw a team without a plan in Monday's 12-7 loss to the Jaguars, and Baltimore's fans agree.
It's the kind of recurring nightmare that Edgar Allen Poe would have appreciated for sheer horror.
When at their best over the past decade, the Baltimore Ravens were good enough defensively to win Super Bowls. Offenses ranging from dreadful to inconsistent were largely the reason they fell short.
The same book may be getting written again this season.
Falling to a 10-point...
When the Ravens stumbled against Tennessee, it was almost understandable, but what is happening in Jacksonville is -- quite frankly -- an embarrassment. They've delivered one of the worst offensive performances in the history of the team and they've made every mistake known to a football team to get in position for what is shaping up to be a very damaging and discouraging...
On Friday night, I dislocated my knee while swinging a bat during a coed softball game. I ended up on the ground in the fetal position literally screaming at the top of my lungs in pain while waiting to be carted off the field on a stretcher.
That’s how my weekend started.
What a fitting end to the weekend, then, that the Ravens would have me figuratively screaming at the top of...
That was one ugly football game between the Baltimore Ravens (4-2) and Jacksonville Jaguars (2-5). The Ravens didn't get their first first down until the third quarter and the Jaguars beat Baltimore 12-7 Monday night.
This was a game that didn't see the Ravens score until there was 2:02 left on the clock and, going in to the scoring drive, Baltimore had 56 net yards on...
Includes Head Coach John Harbaugh, QB Joe Flacco and LB Ray Lewis.
If the loss in Tennessee was a letdown, this one was a meltdown. The Ravens couldn’t move the ball for the first 55 minutes. The defense played well, but helped the Jaguars put points on the board with key penalties. And it was Joe Flacco, not Jaguars rookie Blaine Gabbert, who made the final fatal mistake in crunch time.
Maurice Jones-Drew ran for 105 yards against the NFL's best run defense, Josh Scobee kicked four field goals and the Jacksonville Jaguars snapped a five-game slide with a 12-7 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.
