Yes, my bottom is still recovering from Sunday’s ugly loss to the Houston Texans, but while I am recovering, the Baltimore Ravens are problem-solving and desperately figuring out how to improve their team. The first step is to fix the offensive line; they have been terrible at protecting quarterback Joe Flacco. On Monday, head coach John Harbaugh hinted that they may shuffle the offensive line and mix it up by giving playing time to the younger players. “Yeah, that’s a possibility,” Harbaugh said when asked if he would consider...

Ouch. My bottom still hurts from the beating the Houston Texans gave the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. The game was beyond painful to watch and it was heart-breaking watching a team with so much potential play so poorly in a match-up of what was supposed to be the AFC’s top teams. Unfortunately the Texans had the Ravens’ number early when they sacked quarterback Joe Flacco and scored a safety. This ignited the ugly chain of events that ended in the 43-13 beat down of the Ravens. Sadly Ravens’ head coach John Harbaugh was at a loss...

The banged up Baltimore Ravens are about to play their toughest game this season when they take on the Houston Texans in the Lone Star State. They have the best records in the AFC, tied at 5-1, this game could determine home-field advantage for the playoffs later this season. The wounded birds will play without their star middle linebacker Ray Lewis and cornerback Lardarius Webb. Lewis tore his triceps muscle last Sunday and had surgery this week, he was added to the special injured reserve list and is eligible to return in six weeks,...

The Baltimore Ravens were fortunate that the Dallas Cowboys blew their chances of beating them on Sunday. The Ravens may have won the game 31-29, but they wound up losers when they lost two of their star defensive players for the season. 17-year, Pro Bowl linebacker Ray Lewis was injured during the final two minutes of the game while making a tackle on Cowboys’ running back Phillip Tanner. An MRI confirmed that he suffered a complete tear to his right triceps; he will miss the rest of the season. Lewis is a fixture on the Ravens’...

The Baltimore Ravens game against the Kansas City Chiefs wasn’t for the faint of heart. It felt like a heart attack waiting to happen with flashbacks of the no-go offense we endured before quarterback Joe Flacco came on board. The game was painful to watch, but a 9-6 ugly win is still a win. Road wins are always more challenging, add in the noise factor at Arrowhead Stadium and playing a team desperate for a second win this season, made the Ravens’ victory that much sweeter. The win can be credited to one thing and one thing only:...

After four games in 18 days, the Baltimore Ravens had a mini bye with ten days off. Hopefully the rest will give them the momentum they need to face the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday. Arrowhead is one of the loudest Stadiums in the NFL, the Ravens played there before. Their last visit was during the 2010 AFC Wild Card game where Ravens won 30-7. While the Ravens hope to implement the no-huddle offense in Sunday’s game, they know that noise is a factor; they prepared by practicing non-verbal communication. If quarterback...

Oops, they did it again…After an explosive week one win against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Baltimore Ravens fell short in their 24-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. This has become a familiar pattern for the Ravens as it is the third straight week two loss after a week one win. It was an ugly game, full of turnovers, penalties, injuries and botched calls. The first half wasn’t bad, the Ravens left for half-time with a 17-7 lead, the lead shrank to 17-14 at the start of the fourth quarter; they couldn’t hold it to it...

After a huge win against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday night, the Ravens head to Philadelphia to face the Eagles on Sunday. The Ravens are fortunate that their injury list is short. The only player definitely not suiting up is tackle Jah Reid; sidelined with a strained right calf. Head coach John Harbaugh is staying quiet on the game-day status of the players listed as questionable or probable for Sunday: “I don’t really have any thought on it other than the busses will pull up at 1 o’clock, all of our guys will be there, they will...

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, aka T-Sizzle, has been in the headlines a lot lately.  We recently heard the good news that his recovery is going well and while he maintains that he will be back this season, the cause of the injury is back in the news. Suggs’ injury has taken on a life of its own; it has become a “he said, she said” story with conflicting...
