Don’t cry for the Ravens, Argentina… And guess what— their defensive secondary is not that bad as a group and I’ll tell you why— You lose Jimmy Smith and Asa Jackson and are forced to play Lardarius Webb with a bad back and a sore groin, and you still take New England to the brink of defeat in the AFC divisional round… Had the Ravens pass rush been able to counter Tom...

Pees does masterful job with Ravens' depleted defense

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) Drawing on the knowledge he gained over 35 years as a football coach, Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees showed his creativity and expertise this season in putting together a unit that sustained its hard-hitting reputation despite several key injuries and the suspension of Haloti Ngata.

Lardarius Webb compares Jimmy Graham to LeBron James

Mitch Stringer-US PRESSWIRE The Baltimore Ravens are preparing for their match-up with the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football.  It’s a game of importance for the Ravens as a loss would put them at 6-5 and put a dent in their chances of making the playoffs. The Saints in comparison are not having a good season at all.  They are 4-6 and have lost two in a row at home...

4 reasons the Baltimore Ravens bye week is a godsend

1. The Ravens secondary gets time to gel. The bye week comes at a good time for the back third of the Ravens, as they are given an extra week of preparation to allow themselves to coagulate as a unit.  In general, it is a long shot trying to scrape together a defensive back unit at the end of the season, and likely, the Ravens situation isn’t much different.  However Danny Gorrer...

Baltimore Ravens face Pittsburgh Steelers at their optimum offensive state

The Ravens have three cornerbacks who are healthy in Lardarius Webb, Dominique Franks and Chykie Brown.  They figure to need all three — and then some — in their matchup against the Steelers Sunday night. Antonio Brown leads the NFL in receptions, if that’s any indication of his quality.  On the opposite side is burgeoning rookie Martavis Bryant, a fourth-round pick from...

Ravens wary of Roethlisberger vs Steelers

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) The Baltimore Ravens won't drastically alter their game plan Sunday night just because Ben Roethlisberger threw for 522 yards and six touchdowns last week. Harassing and containing Roethlisberger would have been a priority regardless of how the Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback fared in a 51-34 rout of Indianapolis.

Lardarius Webb unlikely to be back with Ravens next year?

Jamison Hensley of ESPN doesn’t expect veteran CB Lardarius Webb to be back with the Ravens next season. According to Hensley, “it’s hard to justify paying him $8 million in salary in 2015,” especially when there is no way that they can be sure Webb will be healthy enough to suit up. Webb has already missed three of the team’s first five games this year due to a back...

Singing in the rain as Ravens head to Tampa…

There’s plenty of positives for Ravens fans to take out of the close loss to the Colts as the team prepares for Tampa Bay on Sunday. Haloti Ngata got yet another “Fat Guy” interception and even threw in a spin-move on a short return! That’s the 6th pass defensed by Ngata so far this season— an incredible stat for a 350-pound defensive lineman. Rookie inside linebacker...

The Ravens defense was on the field for over 38 minutes in Sunday’s game in Indianapolis.  The affects of that contest are going to be felt beyond this week. Asa Jackson and Chris Canty are both expected to miss multiple weeks.  Both players are part of depleted positional corps, and Canty in particular has been the last line of defense at the five-technique position.  The Ravens...

Ravens in bounce-back mode after another road loss

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) The Baltimore Ravens started their most challenging stretch of the season with a miserable thud.

Ravens play the Colts tough but lose, 20-13…

The Ravens left it all on the field—no question about their collective effort—at Lucas Oil Stadium, where they are now a lifetime 0-5. They limited Andrew Luck to 20 points and had pressure on him all day. Problem is, the Colts defense had equal or more pressure on Joe Flacco, and made life very uncomfortable for the Ravens offense.

The Ravens safety play, and addressing the elephant in the room

When the Ravens drafted Matt Elam in the first-round last year, we assumed that would solidify at least one safety spot for four years. Elam’s career has started in more of a stumbling manner than a running one, not dissimilar to Jimmy Smith coming out of Colorado.  We know that Smith was worthy of that selection, but with Lardarius Webb, Cary Williams and Corey Graham, the depth...
