There has certainly been more love shown for kickers in today’s game(unless you’re Peyton Manning going off on your idiot kicker) but the position is still often overlooked....

Weekly Rewind: The Cundiff path, Stover’s wrath, 11th overall pick & more

Baltimore Ravens great Matt Stover stays busy in his post playing days

It should come as no surprise then that these days many aspiring kickers go to Stover for his advice. He’s become something of a kicker guru, helping a number of college and pro players hone their game with different tips and practice sessions...

Matt Stover set the bar for all of these players

The Ravens have been in the NFL for a short period of time compared to many other franchises around the league. In their short history, the organization has not been known to draft many kickers and punters, as most of these specialty players can be picked up after the draft. In fact, the Ravens have only drafted two special team players throughout their history.  However, they have...

Ravens open TC---and get it right, they're not "defending" an NFL Title...

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh has made it clear to his team: "We're not 'defending' a league title... we are going all out to win a league title again..."

Cowboys Once Had a Great Rivalry with the Cleveland Browns

  The Cowboys faced the Browns in Cleveland in 1965. The Cowboys will meet the Cleveland Browns for just the 11th time since 1970. During my own lifetime, this hasn’t been any sort of rivalry at all. During Roger Staubach‘s last season in 1979, the Cowboys visited Cleveland on Monday Night Football, but the Browns thumped Dallas in a 26-7 Dallas loss. Fifteen years later, the...

The Remote Report: Let Go of Your Feelings Toward the Ravens

If there’s one thing a Cleveland Browns fan knows, it’s spite. We fans carry spite in all kinds of ways towards all kinds of groups, people, and locations. As such, watching the Baltimore Ravens in the playoffs tends to bring up some unpleasant emotions from Browns fans. But not from me. On the one hand, it does sting my pride a little bit to know that the team Cleveland used...

Let me preface this by saying I really do like Billy Cundiff as the successor to longtime kicker Matt Stover.Cundiff was absolutely lights out last season, but has struggled some in 2011.

This week I compiled a list of the 10 best non-defensive (offense and special teams) players in Baltimore history. This list was just as hard to make, not...
