Baltimore Ravens Back to Organized Chaos

Yeah it’s only preseason and you don’t want to over-analyze the play-calling, but there are some good things happening with the Ravens defense.

In their first preseason game against the Panthers,  the defense stifled […]

Ravens Zbikowski on Punt Returns, Too Risky?

Baltimore Ravens FS Tom Zbikowski will have much on his plate as he will likely be filling in for the injured Ed Reed at the start of the season.  The free safety position is a demanding position, as it requires the player to “quarterback” the secondary.

But I’m not so sure about that. Smith and Beck will certainly get plenty of preseason playing time, but ultimately I […]

Ravens Strategy: Will Defense Bring More Heat?

Greg Mattison, the Baltimore Ravens Defensive Coordinator, will find his secondary in a difficult spot with the likelihood of cornerbacks Fabian Washington and Lardarius Webb, along with safety Ed Reed missing some games this season. The replacements in the secondary will certainly be under some pressure, but one way to take  that pressure off the […]
