The defending Superbowl champion Baltimore Ravens have lost Jameel McClain and Kapron Lewis-Moore to the PUP list. Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun is reporting both players have been placed on the reserve PUP list making them ineligible for the fist six weeks. McClain tallied 79 tackles before suffering a season-ending spinal contusion against the Washington Redskins in Week 14 last season. Lewis-Moore is still recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in the BCS National Title Game. McClain is expected to start at weak-side inside linebacker when he returns and the Raven's are hopeful he will return to his productive ways. However Lewis-Moore has been expected to miss the entire season since he was the 200th overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft. A top-ranked defense has been a mainstay in Baltimore, however this season it will look a little different. Not one but two future NFL Hall of Famers have moved on as Ray Lewis rode of into the sunset after the Superbowl victory while Ed Reed left for the Houston Texans. Is it possible that the Ravens defense may have actually gotten better despite losing seven starters? Consider this; Elvis Dumervil comes to Baltimore after the Bronco's staff flubs faxing his contract, Speedy free-agent Michael Huff is signed from Oakland, DT Chris Canty came over from the New York Giants and the first four draft picks were used for defense. Dumervil and Terrell Suggs should combine to make one of the most feared tandems in the league. Age and experience in big games were the trademark of the defense and now change that to youth a speed. "Those guys left their mark here and they'll never be forgotten, but anybody who knows football  knows better than to think this defense got dismantled"                                                                          - Baltimore Ravens Linebacker Elvis Dumervil Does that look like a defense that has been dismantled?

Denver Radio Host Takes Care of a Joe Flacco Banner

The NFL regular season is just days away, but we already have a minor controversy of sorts brewing. Thanks to the Orioles playing a home game the Ravens are opening the season on the road in Denver. In advance of the game the league is putting up a lot of signs--featuring Joe Flacco. You know; the QB for the other team. Broncos fans have let the NFL know they are...

Ravens to rest starters vs. Rams in PS4....

It makes sense, even though the Ravens' 1st teams on both sides of the ball (and special teams!) clearly need more work. The vets will rest against St. Louis Thursday night. Meanwhile, more than 20 roster spots are about to be released, so for those guys there is plenty to play for. I was looking forward to seeing Tyrod Taylor get the start at QB against the Rams. Looks...

What to watch in Rams' preseason finale against Ravens

ST. LOUIS -- The Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens are coming to town, but you can be forgiven for not excitedly counting down the hours to 7 p.m. Thursday. The Ravens are visiting for a preseason game against the Rams, the fourth and final one, at that. Most teams tend to sit their regulars in the preseason finale under normal circumstances, and the Ravens have even more reason...

The Ravens are going to get knocked off their high horse in Denver on opening night. Week 1 picks.

The Ravens played great in the playoffs last season beating the top AFC team on their way to the Super Bowl.  I've been very hard on Joe Flacco in the past but I gave him credit for leading them to a championship.  Now that we're heading into a new season, my criticism of Flacco remains.  He's lost Boldin and Pitta, not to mention Rice isn't getting any younger...
