The Baltimore Ravens have had some of the greatest defenses in the history of the NFL. Within those great defenses were some of the best defensive players that this league has ever seen. It was very difficult to get this list down to just 10 players because the Ravens have had so many game changers throughout the course of their franchise. I picked this list based on the impact that the players had on the team, not just necessarily statistics. I will start the list off at number 10…   10. DT Kelly Gregg (2001-2010) Kelly Gregg was one of the more overlooked pieces in some of the best Baltimore Ravens defenses. Gregg clogged the middle and made it hard for teams to run the ball. He is second all-time in tackles in Baltimore Ravens history with 721.   9. LB Bart Scott (2002-2008) Mr. Can’t Wait! Bart was one of the most dynamic linebackers that the Baltimore Ravens had. It took a while for him to get going once he got to Baltimore, only recording 63 tackles in his first 3 years, but...

Birk won't brag, but teammates know center makes the offensive line go

Veteran Ravens center Matt Birk missed most of the pre-season after knee surgery, but has been his steady self during the seasonMatt Birk doesn't talk much about the pain in the surgically-repaired left knee that continues to trouble him.

What’s Important Now: Beating the “Bad” Teams

After their 35-7 stomping of Pittsburgh on opening day, the Ravens, for whatever reason – I myself like to blame the Sports Illustrated Cover jinx – suffered a huge letdown in Nashville against the Titans, losing 26-13. While it remains to be seen how legitimate of a team Tennessee really is – they didn’t show many positives in losing 38-7 in Pittsburgh two weeks ago ...

Week 6 Postmortem: Ravens 29 - Texans 14

Here are my observations from yesterday's game between Baltimore and Houston, in no particular order:This is not last year's teamThe 2011 Baltimore Ravens actually know how to finish out a game.  They didn't panic after the Texans took the lead in the 3rd quarter, and they didn't go into a scramble like they did against Houston last year when the Ravens blew a 15...

The Ravens have an extra day this week because they play on Monday night against the Jaguars in Jacksonville. I assume by now that Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio has watched the Ravens game against the Texans, and suspect he will run a lot of delayed blitzes against the Ravens on Monday night. The Texans had success with Sunday, especially in the first half, and I was surprised that...

Cundiff bounces back
