Dennis Pitta is, arguably, the best tight end in Brigham Young Cougars history. He was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in April 2010 following his stellar BYU career. Pitta is the Ravens’ top tight end, and has 45 receptions for 442 yards and 4 touchdowns through the first 12 games this season. Pitta was gracious enough to answer a few questions for BLUECOUGAR FOOTBALL. In his three year NFL career, Pitta has shown steady improvement each year. In 2012, he has already set new career highs for receptions, yards, and touchdowns. The Ravens are a run-first team, but Pitta’s numbers are still competitive with most tight ends in the NFL. When asked what he thought about his play this season, Pitta was more concerned about improving better than acknowledging what he has already accomplishments. “This business is a lot of self evaluation,” Pitta explained. “Each week you look at what you are doing and try to get better. … I am always trying to get better. I try to work hard and prepare ea...

Lets face it, the Baltimore Ravens defense is in need of a youth movement, the aging Ravens defense will face a young fast RGIII Sunday in a game the Redskins could steal away from Baltimore if RGIII decides to light it up with his speed. The Ravens have to cover against the rush with RGIII, if he starts to scramble with the speed he brings to the field he will be able to burn the...
The Baltimore Ravens sit atop the AFC North (9-3) by two games over the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals, both at 7-5. With four games to go in the season, surely the Ravens will secure their second straight division title, right? Not so fast.
I’m not so sure the Ravens will win any of their remaining games and here’s why:
The Ravens face the Washington Redskins this...

According to WBAL-TV in Baltimore, Suggs was forced to surrender a total of nine weapons after his girl friend placed a restraining order on him.
Suggs had the weapons delivered to Ravens Training Camp, where...
According to reports, linebacker Paul Kruger has been fined for how he wears his jersey. The NFL is infamous for fining players for how they wear their uniforms and it appears Kruger’s style finally got him fined. The amount of the fine is $5,000 and Kruger plans to appeal it.
For the Ravens:
Did not participate: TE Ed Dickson (knee) and LB Dannell Ellerbe (ankle)

Time to break out more superlatives. Robert Griffin III is about to play another game.
''He's unbelievable. He's back there, he makes more plays than anyone you've been around. He changes the game.''
Ah, but there's a catch. While it certainly sounds like a defensive player getting ready to face RG3, it's actually Washington Redskins offensive...
At 9-3, the Ravens are the only AFC division leader not currently guaranteed a playoff birth, and looking at their schedule, it's conceivable that they could still be overtaken by the Pittsburgh Steelers as the AFC North's top team. In case you're now scratching your head, hear me out.
The Ravens have a remarkably tough road ahead to round out the 2012 regular season...
Ed Reed’s comments this past weekend after the Baltimore Ravens loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers brought to light a pretty interesting idea, the NFL cares more about offensive players than defensive players.
Through no fault of their own, defensive players jobs are getting tougher and tougher. More penalties are being called on them, and more of them are being fined for illegal...
To say the Ravens are coming off a shocking loss may be an understatement. However, it’s not terribly shocking when it comes down to the fact that it was against the Steelers.
The worry for this week is containing Robert Griffin III. Since their bye week, the Redskins, led by Griffin, have been on fire, sweeping their division opponents in the last three games. Griffin has been...
The Baltimore Ravens “travel” this week to play the Washington Redskins. This game is scheduled for a 1 p.m. EST kickoff on CBS and features what should be an interesting match-up of a veteran defense and an athletic quarterback.
Last week the Ravens lost in heartbreaking fashion at home to the Pittsburgh Steelers who were playing with third string quarterback Charlie Batch...
