About Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore Ravens have made the playoffs ten times this century, and are the only team in the NFL to be a team which appeared in multiple Super Bowls without a loss.
The franchise gets dressed in beautiful colours of Purple, Black, Metallic Gold and White. Their mascot is Poe, who is named after the ever so famous Edgar Allan Poe, whose poem, “The Raven“ has also inspired name for the team.
Beside the mascot the franchise is also presented by Rise and Conquer, live Ravens!
Baltimore Ravens are coached by one of the most respected coaches in the League, John Harbaugh whose brother Jim also worked as a head coach at NFL level and amazingly John beat his brother in Super Bowl XLVII who led then the 49ers!
At the driving seat of the Baltimore franchise is well known Joe Flacco, a quarterback known for his clutch performances in post season games. While he might look ordinary at times during the regular season, no one can discount Joe in post season and everything’s possible as the 2012 Super Bowl ring is the best proof of that.
Perhaps, part of the Ravens’ success lies in its offensive line which is anchored by still developing left tackle, Eugene Monroe and one of the best offensive lineman, Marshall Yanda. He is a 4 time Pro Bowler, well decorated guard who was part of Ravens’ championship run.
Justin Forsett, a veteran running back provides some reliable yardage from behind, while Joe can work some magic with his wide receiving corps, to provide the team with some highlights and a steady stream of points.
Defensively Ravens very often look to Jimmy Smith for some decisive plays in the secondary. Jimmy, still developing cornerback is tied with the team for some years and is sure to provide a great coverage of opponent’s receivers.
Jimmy is paired with Ladarius Webb, a veteran cornerback to protect the deep zones. Both cornerbacks were part of Ravens Super Bowl run, so plenty of experience and knowledge can be shared between the pair.
The team can also take a relief knowing that “defensive quarterbacks”, Daryl Smith and C. J. Mosley, pair of middle line-backers share some valuable experience (Smith) and explosive youth(Mosley) between themselves.
On special teams there is Sam Loch, another member of the 2012 season whose punting efforts earned him Pro Bowl alternate nomination last season, not to mention that Sam hold Ravens’ records in variety of punting statistics.
While Ravens are not the most famous, loudest, biggest teams, they can never be discounted from making a deep run into post season.
