Suggs, Dumervil could provide Ravens with NFL’s best pass-rushing tandem

The Baltimore Ravens’ pass rush was nothing special last season, but it could be this season, thanks to the offseason acquisition of Elvis Dumervil and a healthy Terrell Suggs. On paper, the Ravens may not only have their best pass-rushing duo since Suggs arrived in 2003, but they may very well possess the most potent […]

Elvis Dumervil signing confirms that Ozzie Newsome always has a plan

Ozzie Newsome is considered by many to be one of the best — if not the best — general managers in the NFL. This offseason, following a second Super Bowl victory during the past 12 seasons, might confirm why Newsome is perhaps the best team builder in the NFL. The reigning Super Bowl champions traded […]

Who’s to blame for Ravens win?

It sounds like an oxymoron to suggest there should be someone to blame for not a loss, but a win. In this case, the Baltimore Ravens overcame the San Diego Chargers, beating them 16-13.

Can Flacco carry the Ravens in ‘T-Sizzle’s’ absence?

They play on the opposite side of the ball. While quarterback Joe Flacco anchors the Ravens offense, outside linebacker Terrell Suggs is one of the cornerstone pieces on one of the best defensive units in the NFL. Flacco is far from perfect. His biggest problem is following up one solid performance with another. One week […]

Terrell Suggs’ Achilles tendon only partially torn

For Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, there’s hope for a return in 2012. Suggs, 29, only partially tore his Achilles tendon, a prognosis confirmed during his successful surgery to repair the damage on Tuesday, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com. That being said, Suggs could make a return in four to six months instead […]
