It can be argued that the 2012 Baltimore Ravens running back core is the best in team history and starting running back Ray Rice should be worried, for two reasons.

The Baltimore Ravens are adding on to their front office, and in doing so, are departing a bit from the norm. Every front office has a GM and a horde of scouts to evaluate college players in the draft, current free agents, and even their own roster. The Ravens are going a step further, however, [...]
If it's too hot to fish, or too hot to golf, it's probably too hot to play football...But with its first preseason game only two days away, the 2012 edition of the Ravens had to keep at it in what amounts to a record heat wave in Baltimore County...It started out like a day at the beach...but it ended with players dropping like flies...Wide receiver Tandon Doss returned...
As we fly across the late afternoon city, August red swelter, a serene blanketing calm and wave of deep focus takes over the car and its passengers, as our silver speeding Jeep hugs the curves of winding Lombard street, expediting our arrival to today’s hallowed destination, M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.

“(His) route-running’s improved. He’s improved his hands. He’s improved with understanding the blitz package, when he’s hot...
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh told Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times that quarterback Joe Flacco has looked really good so far in training camp.
“Joe is really on the money, so that’s good to see,” said Harbaugh.
Flacco has made it clear that he believes he’s elite quarterback. It will be up to him in 2012 to step his game up and prove the doubters wrong.
The Falcons will be kicking off their preseason schedule this Thursday when they go up against the Baltimore Ravens. Even though it's game one we could get a lot of telling information out of the few series the starters will be in and then the subsequent series with the backups.

Fantasy football drafts are coming up, as the NFL season grows closer. In most leagues running backs provide more points week by week than any other position. Therefore the first pick of the draft should almost always be a running back who is consistent enough to carry a fantasy team for a full season.
This year Arian Foster seems like the consensus number one pick, but why? He has...
Headlining the AFC North are two teams that carry the “toughest” faces in the NFL, the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Naturally, the most elusive players in the division exhibit the same “never say die” attitude when carrying the football as they defy defensive tackling attempts.
Despite the tough character of the AFC North division, the division’s ball...
