Redesigned Baltimore Ravens logo is the stuff of nightmares

Everyone seems to be making their own NFL logos these days. There are ones inspired by Star Wars, Game of Thrones, corporations, fat people, it goes on and on. We haven’t seen any for the Ravens that really caught our eye… until today. Here’s a dark new take on the Ravens logo that we found on imgur: I like this one much better than what the team is currently using. It...

Latest updates on the Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens rode Joe Flacco’s big arm and a strong defense led by the retiring and inspiring Ray Lewis to a magical Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers. That was the 2012-2013 season. The 2013-2014 season was much different. Gone were future Hall-of-Famers Lewis and Ed Reed. Also gone was Flacco’s favorite target Anquan Boldin. To make matters worse, another...

VIDEO: Ray Lewis knocks the wheels off The Bus in Pittsburgh

Ah, the good old days. This was when Ray Lewis defined sideline-to-sideline, and there wasn’t really anybody that could contain him.  Too strong to block, too fast to run around.  It was just a thing to marvel at. Jerome Bettis is arguably the greatest power running back of all time, and there are not many occasions that see him overpowered.  With the both of them working in...

Johnny Unitas and Ray Lewis — Baltimore legends, immortalized together

Ground is breaking in Baltimore, and we’re not talking new property. It looks like the Johnny Unitas statue, which stands at the end of Ravens Walk, will have some company very soon. The Baltimore Ravens honored “The Golden Arm” back in October of 2002, a month after his passing. Unitas brought Baltimore fans a lot of excitement in his years as a Baltimore Colt. A legacy such...

Are the Baltimore Ravens recent arrests another sign of a leadership void?

This past weekend, Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith got arrested for disorderly conduct at a local bar outside of Baltimore. His arrest makes five total for the Ravens in 2014. The Ravens organization has got to be wondering not only how to handle the situation, but their players, as well. It is a shame when a former-first round pick cannot seem to find his way out of trouble with the...

The Baltimore Ravens are all defense… I HATE that perception

I hate the perception that the Baltimore Ravens’ defense has carried a mediocre offense throughout their history. This is just not true. This stigma has hovered over the Ravens’ organization for years, season after season. Don’t get me wrong. There have been times when one could justify such a perception. The days when the Ravens were searching for their franchise quarterback...

Ravens linebacker Daryl Smith ready to improve on 2013 season

Daryl Smith just smiled and shrugged off the question. Asked recently about being the replacement last year for iconic Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis, Smith stayed true to his low-key personality. He doesn't focus on such comparisons, instead directing his attention to the coming season. The Ravens are scheduled to hold their first full-team practice of training camp July...

Ray Lewis redirects inspiration to Baltimore families

It’s one thing to win on the field, but when one helps others win off of the field, that’s special. Baltimore’s own, Ray Lewis, was a winner on the field — no question. The two Super Bowl rings and other personal accolades prove that fact. But Lewis hasn’t lost a step since hanging up his cleats, even if the future Hall of Famer can’t go sideline-to-sideline like he...

Ray Lewis replacement? Daryl Smith quietly doing the job

Baltimore Ravens 2014: 5 Most Pressing Questions Heading Into Training Camp

Somehow, I am positive the Baltimore Ravens did not expect to not only be 8-8 on the season, but miss out on the playoffs after winning the Super Bowl in 2012 and having a defense that although lost Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, was still pretty bad ass at times.This season has already started with a “bang” as the franchise said goodbye to offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell, who said...

Steve Smith Sr. carries #52′s trademark

Steve Smith Sr., over the years, has established his trademark of “passion and intensity” on the field no matter what time of the year it is. That same trademark is one that the Ravens are very familiar with, dating back to Ray Lewis’s days on the field. The legendary former Raven exemplified that same trademark of passion and intensity. Ray was known for his sometime unorthodox...

The Minnesota Vikings should not worry if forced to fire Mike Priefer

The investigation over allegations from former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe about homophobic comments allegedly made by special teams coordinator Mike Priefer is nearly over. Should the investigation bear out in Kluwe’s favor, there is a very good chance that Priefer could be fired despite his excellent track record in Minnesota and an offseason program already in swing...

Baltimore Ravens: The Good, Bad & Ugly Heading Into 2014

The Baltimore Ravens are living proof that what might work in one season may not work in another. After a Super Bowl win in 2012 – the second in the franchise’s history, things changed in a major way. Ray Lewis – the team’s on-field and spiritual leader – retired. Ed Reed was cut from the team. Joe Flacco put together the greatest performance in playoff history and then...

C.J. Mosley the perfect fit to replace Ray Lewis?

After winning Super Bowl XLVII, future hall of fame inductee, and arguably the best inside linebacker of all time, Ray Lewis decided to hang it up and retire after an illustrious seventeen year career. Drafted with the twenty-sixth overall pick in the 1996 NFL Draft out of the University of Miami, Lewis led the Raven franchise to two Super Bowl wins, quarterbacking some of the NFL’s...

Is Ravens 17th pick C.J. Mosley the steal of the NFL Draft?

The Baltimore Ravens selected Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley with the 17th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, and many analysts are saying that the pick was the steal of the draft. Baltimore has been looking to upgrade their linebacker depth this offseason, and they very well might have gotten their future defensive leader with Mosley. So the question then becomes, was Mosley the steal...

C.J. Mosley is Ravens’ pick at #17 overall….

The Ravens got their man based on Best Player Available at #17….as they did not want to risk C.J. Mosley’s not being available at all if they bought into a tradeback offer. ESPN’s Jamison Hensley likes the pick for its value. “The Ravens wanted [inside linebacker] Mosley so bad that they passed on the draft’s top safety, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, even though that was a bigger...

His brother Arthur Jones plays for the Ravens and was a former teammate of Ray Lewis, who just so happened to be sitting cageside along with younger brother Chandler.

Worst CB for the Ravens: The man after Ogden and Lewis

The first two players ever drafted by the Baltimore Ravens were Jonathan Ogden and Ray Lewis.  Two of the greatest ever to play their position.  Unfortunately, the third choice the Ravens ever made didn’t quite make it to that level.  Or close to it. In the 1996 draft, the Ravens used their second round pick on DeRon Jenkins, a promising cornerback out of the University of Tennessee...

Where are they now: Edgerton

The Raveans drafted Ed Hartwell in the fourth round of the 2001 draft as a project middle linebacker, someone they hoped could be a solid backup to Ray Lewis.  It was under the tutelage of Lewis, though, that Hartwell excelled, providing great dividends for the team during his four years with the Ravens.  After his rookie year, Hartwell started every game at middle linebacker in...

Worst 3 ILB: Who are they?

Fortunately for the Ravens, the franchise has not had to draft inside linebackers for quite some time, due to the fact they had future hall of famer Ray Lewis on their team for nearly two decades. Although Ozzie Newsome and company are regarded as some of the best — if not the best at what they do — as we all know, everyone makes mistakes once and a while, and the draft choices...

Wonder what it would be like to have a good inside linebacker…

It’s such a shame that the Baltimore Ravens never drafted any good inside linebackers.  I mean, if you rack your brain for hours, you’ll struggle to come up with one name — just one — that has made a lasting impression on the game of football.  For 17 years, the Ravens have been a franchise that has sorely lacked any motivating presence at middle linebacker, and that probably...

Where Are They Now: Boulware after Baltimore…

Despite his key contributions to the great Ravens defenses during his heyday, it’s become somewhat commonplace to overlook Peter Boulware.  Ray Lewis got the vast majority of the attention when they played together (and deservedly so), and not long after Boulware retired, Terrell Suggs took the mantle as the great Raven pass rusher. However, Peter Boulware was a force at outside...

Baltimore Ravens to Pay Fitting Tribute to Ray Lewis

Ray Lewis was the face of the Baltimore Ravens for 17 seasons. He will undoubtedly be a Hall of Famer and is among one of the greatest linebackers to ever step foot on the field. Greatness and success followed Lewis throughout his football career, going back to his days at Kathleen High School in Lakeland, Florida. Lewis stayed close to home, playing his college football with the...
