The case for Pernell McPhee to Pittsburgh

OLB Pernell McPhee was a terror for opposing offenses in 2014. The man was constantly reaching the quarterback and making plays for his team, the Baltimore Ravens. The 26 year old no doubt has talent, and I believe his abilities could be of big use for the Steelers. Let’s be real here for a second. Can the Steelers actually afford him? My answer is a doubtful maybe. A four year...

Steelers Will Have Defensive Options in Free Agency

Last off-season there was mild surprise for most of us when the Steelers went out and grabbed safety Mike Mitchell early in free agency. For the Steelers, that’s about as high profile as it gets when it comes to their free agents. They followed that up with some of their typical mid-level guys like Cam Thomas, Lance Moore, and LaGarette Blount. Looking back, I’d say every one...

Steelers vs. Ravens: Five Key Matchups

Few rivalries are as riveting for NFL fans as the classic battles between the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers, not only because of the traditionally physical style of the two teams, but also because of the brewing individual hatred each squad’s players have for the other’s. Granted, several of those individual rivalries have passed (Hines Ward vs. Ed Reed, Ray Lewis...

Three Keys to Ravens vs Bengals

photo: It would seem as though the national media has finally taken notice of the Baltimore Ravens. One pundit on the NFL network even said if he was the Denver Broncos, the last team he’d want to face right now is the Baltimore Ravens.

PFF: Baltimore Ravens have the three best 3-4 OLBs in the NFL

So, this is something that a defense can be proud of. The Baltimore Ravens 3-4 defense has wreaked havoc on opposing offense of late, and though they started a bit slow in the secondary, the front seven has put forth impressive performances all season long.  Part of the beauty of that arrangement is the versatility that the Ravens have, and as a result, they have had three players...

Ravens defense dominates in 29-7 victory over ATL, but lose starter to ACL injury

MVP Pernell McPhee While 2014 has been an outstanding campaign for Pernell McPhee even before Sunday’s outing, Sunday was his coming out party.  McPhee had two sacks, and a handful of other quarterback hits while wreaking havoc on the Falcons’ shaky offensive line all game long.  The Ravens front seven had their way with the banged up trenchmen put forth by Atlanta, and...

Ravens reach 1st place by dismissing Falcons

BALTIMORE (AP) The Baltimore Ravens are playing defense with the kind of swagger usually associated with a first-place team. Baltimore chased quarterback Matt Ryan all over the field, blanked the Atlanta Falcons over the first 52 minutes, and moved into the top spot in the AFC North with a 29-7 victory on Sunday.

Atlanta at Baltimore: Three Things We Learned

Maybe someone needs to remind the Atlanta Falcons and Matt Ryan the goal in the NFL is to move forward, not in reverse.This may sound like a broken record, but the Falcons lost another football game on Sunday, the fourth in a row since the team beat Tampa Bay 56-14. This loss, a 29-7 defeat at the hands of Baltimore, just proved how woeful the team has been over the course of the...
