Why the Ravens need to and will, restructure Flacco’s contract

We flashback to January. The Ravens have won the Super Bowl, Ray Lewis goes out on top. The improbable team who had to win by a freak hail mary play in Denver and had to win in New England to even get to the Super Bowl, and then they went and won it! Who was the most important player? Ray... Read More

Potential Ravens targets from the Shrine Game

The East-West Shrine Game is now complete, as the West defeated the East by a score of 29-9. The game, thought of as the second most prestigious of the collegiate all-star games, was much more exciting than last year’s contest which didn’t produce a touchdown until the game’s last minute. This year’s game was headlined by Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams... Read More

Ravens Torched by “Game Manager” Russell Wilson

The narrative that Russell Wilson is simply a game manager is being rightly squashed. Wilson, who over the past three weeks has passed for 13 touchdowns and zero interceptions, has been unjustly labeled and pigeon-holed as a “game manager” because he plays on a team with a good defense and a great running game. I, admittedly, have downplayed Wilson in... Read More

Ravens Ink Former Texans signal caller, Mallet

This is the bottom isn’t it? Two days after getting drilled at home by the surging Seattle Seahawks, General Manager Ozzie Newsome signed Ryan Mallett. The quarterback had previously worked out for the several teams including Baltimore. Mallett, the former blue chip college prospect, had previously been cut by Houston this season due to a fall out with coach Bill... Read More

Fresh off the bye, Ravens face the Jaguars

Well, it certainly hasn’t been a normal season in Baltimore as the Ravens come off of their bye week at 2-6. The offense has under-performed, the defense has been porous and injuries have run rampant throughout the roster. Certainly a good problem to have to some degree, but Baltimore is starting to be hampered by their past success. Due to... Read More

State of the Ravens Address: It’s Time To Rebuild

Last week I wrote this: http://mymindonsports.com/2015/10/is-it-time-to-hit-the-restart-button-in-baltimore/ The gist of the article was basically asking if there was any reason to believe that the Ravens could salvage the season, which I now fully believe that they cannot. After an awful loss to the 49ers, in which they allowed the much maligned Colin Kaepernick to throw for well over 300 yards, Baltimore needs... Read More

Is It Time To Hit The Restart Button In Baltimore?

I’ve mentioned this before, but this season has entered a lot of uncharted territory for the Ravens. Sitting at a very unfamiliar 1-4, they look to rebound against the 1-4 49ers. This will be the first matchup between these two teams since Super Bowl 47, when the Ravens came away victorious. But this Ravens roster is much different since then.... Read More

Baltimore 1-3 Heading Into Showdown With Browns

Baltimore finally won a game and avoided the first 0-4 season start in team history. The win over Pittsburgh was huge for the potential for this season to not necessarily have to be automatic rebuilding effort. If the Ravens want to continue this uphill climb, they need to beat Cleveland this weekend. Cleveland is currently 1-3, having beat the Tennessee... Read More

Ravens “Going Through Hell”, Have One More Chance To Save 2015

So last week I wrote a column regarding the Ravens needing to beat the Cincinnati Bengals in order to salvage a 2015 season already on life support. If you take that statement and replace the Bengals with the Steelers, this article will seem pretty similar. Three teams have started a season 0-3 and made the playoffs since 1990 when the...

Pittsburgh Steelers: The show must go on

As Pittsburgh Steelers fans watched as Big Ben left out of the stadium clutching his left knee,  I am sure they felt as if the season’s hopes left with him, but i would not panic just yet. Steelers QB Ben Rothlisberger injured his knee late in the third quarter after a low hit by Rams’ safety Mark Barron. The hit... Read More
