Forbes ranks the Baltimore Ravens as one of the NFL’s most valuable teams

The Baltimore Ravens finished with an 8-8 record last season, which makes them a pretty average NFL team. But what if we measured how good a team is by something other than wins and losses? If we go by dollar value, then the Ravens are much better. According to an article by Mike Ozanian in Forbes magazine, the Ravens are the tenth most valuable franchise in the NFL at $1.5 billion...

Baltimore Ravens thrive on — better yet, need — points from their ST and defense

The Baltimore Ravens have always been known for having one of the best defenses and a trustworthy special teams unit in their short franchise history. Only in the league since 1996, they’ve put together some of the best team numbers in those years. Despite their success in those areas, some might argue Baltimore’s offense has been a driving force behind the team’s success in...

Are any Baltimore Ravens among the top-5 on the hot seat right now?

Two games down, two to go – at least in the preseason. Yes, that means that the start of regular season is still two weeks away. But that doesn’t mean players and coaches around the league aren’t already on the hot seat; the NFL is a results-oriented organization, where performing at a high level is required at all times. If someone isn’t up to the task, and a better option...

Injuries, lack of depth test Ravens defensive line

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) Baltimore's defensive line has been hit hard by injuries, hard enough to give the Ravens reason to be concerned. The Ravens have already lost two defensive linemen to season-ending injuries, and nose tackle Terrence Cody remains sidelined after hip surgery. That doesn't leave much depth behind veteran starters Chris Canty and five-time Pro Bowl pick...

The Baltimore Ravens don’t need to call Tim Tebow, but these 10 teams should

He hasn’t been seen in awhile, at least on the football field. The only vision of Tim Tebow of late has been on the SEC Network, where he currently is filling the role of a college football analyst. While that gig helps pass the time, and brings in a paycheck, the former Heisman Trophy winner still itches to get back in the game. The quarterback who electrified the league with...

How Baltimore Ravens Drafted Joe Flacco Rather Than Trading Up For Matt Ryan

From Art Modell's founding of the franchise in 1996 to the decision to draft Ray Lewis and Jonathan Ogden, to victories in two Super Bowls the past 15 years, the Baltimore Ravens' short history has been full of highlights. Jamison Hensley has covered much of that history, first as a Baltimore Sun reporter for 11 seasons before moving to ESPN. In this excerpt from his new...

5 questions for the Beltway Battle between the Baltimore Ravens and Washington ____________

Excuse the underscore.  But, that being said, Dan Snyder is fighting an uphill battle. 1. What does the “team” look like? This is the third preseason game, meaning, there is no better chance outside of the regular season to gauge the performance (or potential) of a team than this game.  While the fourth game is often used to determine the final roster spots, the third is a...

Grades are in, but does Kyle Juszczyk’s ode to Biggie Smalls stack up?

There are plenty of memorable entrances in Ravens history — obviously none more so than Ray Lewis (the Gladiator clips set it way over the top). Nobody will be dethroning Ray Lewis.  That’s just a fact.  However, players consistently add their own flair to the entrance game, and Ravens starting fullback/h-back, Kyle Juszczyk, isn’t letting his opportunity go to waste. #Ravens...

Are any Baltimore Ravens either of the biggest heroes or goats from the past week?

Despite the fact that the games didn’t mean anything in the standings, and will be long forgotten in a week or two, the second week of the preseason provided plenty of highlights and lowlights. There were reasons to be excited, causes for concern and everything in between. What players were at each extreme of the spectrum this week? To see the “Heroes and Goats” from preseason...

Joe Flacco: I just flipped off Terrell Suggs

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco isn’t surprised that Browns rookie Johnny Manziel gave the Redskins bench the finger on Monday night. Flacco says he just flipped off his teammate Terrell Suggs during Monday’s practice. “I flipped (Terrell) Suggs off yesterday at practice. I honestly can’t believe it hasn’t happened more often. “When bullets are flying, man, it’s a football...

Baltimore Ravens shoot up preseason Power Rankings, check in at No. 16

Every team has played two games. Most of the starters have seen enough action to provide a sense of what a team has to offer. And the picture is becoming clearer around the league. Yes, it’s dangerous to put too much stock in preseason games. But it’s also foolish to ignore information that can be very valuable, which is what exhibitions provide to the keen observer.

AMAZING PHOTO: Bold Baltimore Ravens fan takes a selfie from top of skyscraper

Last week we reported that a marketing analysis showed that Baltimore Ravens fans are the fifth most confident in the NFL. I took the opportunity to tease them a bit, as I thought that was just a little bit high even after a recent Super bowl victory. Maybe there’s something to it though, if this next story is to be believed. Here is photographer Daniel Lau, taking a selfie from...

Which receivers will soar in the Baltimore Ravens offense?

With so many new additions to the Ravens receiving core, it makes one wonder who will have the best season statistically. As of right now, the 53-man roster is not set, so it is hard to say who stays and goes, but the surefire locks will most definitely make an impact. The locks to make the roster are Torrey and Steve Smith, speedster Jacoby Jones, and the impressive undrafted...
