Pat Kirwan's NFL Power Rankings, where do the Baltimore Ravens stand?

My very first article here on Baltimore Beatdown was about CBS Sport's Pete Prisco compiling a list of the top quarterbacks in the NFL and where Joe Flacco stood. So, let us continue these kinds of rankings as we head one day closer to the beginning of training camp and the official end of all the offseason talk. In this edition, we talk about where the Baltimore Ravens as a team stand in Pat Kirwan's power rankings on The Real Football Network before the start of training camp. For the full audio of Kirwan's list click here...

Joe Flacco vs. Matt Ryan: An Interesting Rivalry

The other day, I found myself watching a re-run of "America's Game: The 2012 Baltimore Ravens," the excellent NFL Films re-telling of the Ravens 2012 Super Bowl season. Near the end of the episode, something interesting struck me about that season, that I had never thought of before. Prior to the 2012 AFC Championship between the Ravens and the New England Patriots, head coach John Harbaugh is describing the story of how he heard that his brother Jim had just won the NFC to take the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl. "Before the game, we were out there in pregame, and we were watching...

Health is the only thing in the way of the Baltimore Ravens becoming a Super Bowl contender

People are making the mistake of reading into the Baltimore Ravens 5-11 season. Some people seem to be of the mindset that the Ravens were 5-11  mainly due to a lack of execution.Those people would be wrong. However, those of us who watched the Ravens very closely during the 2015 season understood that the team had over 20 players sent to injured reserve such as the following Key players: QB Joe Flacco (torn ACL/MCL) OLB Terrell Suggs (torn Achilles) WRSteve Smith Sr. (torn Achilles) WR Breshad Perriman (PCL sprain) LT Eugene Monroe (shoulder) TE Dennis Pitta (hip) RB Justin Forsett...

Joe Flacco given top spot on NFL's Top Five playoff performances of All-Time

Never any doubt The NFL released a video two days ago, the title, "Top 5 Playoff Performances of All Time". If you're a Baltimore fan, you are already skeptical if the NFL forgot Joe Cool. Don't worry though, because sitting upon the top spot is the Ravens elite man himself. Adding to Flacco's brilliance, the number two spot, Joe Montana. The statline on the bottom of the screen for Montana: 78.3 Comp PCT.. 800 Pass YDS, 11 TD, 0 INT in 3 games. Yes, in three games this man was post-season dominating, with a completion percentage of almost 80%! But that still isn't enough to beat the other...

The Baltimore Ravens Starting Five

While Baltimore Ravens fans know well and good they have a talented enough roster to compete in the NFL, but if they had to use their current roster to run out a starting five to play in the NBA, who would it be, and how would they fare? With the NBA Finals ending Sunday in epic fashion, Baltimore Beatdown decided to take a look. Point Guard:  Steve Smith Sr. This is probably the most obvious selection of the entire group.  While Joe Flacco's passing ability may be tantalizing here, it's just too hard to pass up on the athleticism, scoring ability, and killer instinct that Smitty...

Why Joe Flacco should play in the Preseason.

With minicamp recently coming to a close, Baltimore Ravens fans are now just five weeks away from the start of training camp. This means preseason action will also be starting soon. People are very mixed about the preseason; some think its boring, pointless and it flat out doesn't matter, while others think its a fun way to see players gel with a new team and see guys who nobody thought experience a chance of making a team suddenly stand out and deserve a spot on the 53-man roster. For the Baltimore Ravens, the 2016 preseason could be very important as the team has a lot of players coming...

Rehabilitation is the Ravens top priority now

The Ravens concluded minicamp on Thursday and have about six weeks until training camp commences on July 28th. Many players will surely enjoy vacationing or some down time with their families over the next month. For several key performers, this break from team activities will be a crucial period in their quest to get back on the field. Beginning with the most vital player on the team, quarterback Joe Flacco is rehabilitating from a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee. Flacco was present at minicamp and has expressed optimism that he will be ready to roll on the first day of camp. If Flacco...

Ravens QB Joe Flacco is confident he will be ready for the first day of training camp

When Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco tore his ACL and MCL in week 11 of the 2015 season against the then St. Louis Rams, many were worried as to how long it would take him to recover. At face value, it didn't look like time would be on his side. Flacco suffered the injury in late November and the timetable that some were going with was until the middle of the September of the 2016 season. With Flacco's work ethic, rehab, and great doctors in the process, Joe won't have to wait until the fall to see time on the field. Flacco expects to be ready for the first day of training camp. "I...

Joe Flacco plans to be on field for Ravens when training camp starts

In Joe Flacco's mind, his surgically repaired left knee was in good enough shape for him to return to the field two months ago. There simply was no point in that, nor did it make much sense for him to be out there this week during the Ravens' three-day mandatory minicamp. But when the Ravens reconvene...

Ravens expected to release or cut LT Eugene Monroe

After not arriving to mandatory mini-camp, the Baltimore Ravens are expected to be done with Eugene Monroe. As for Monroe, it appears that Ravens are moving on him from him, either via trade or release. Situation should be settled soon. — Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiecsun) June 14, 2016 Over the past two seasons Eugene Monroe and the Ravens have experienced difficulties. Injuries have forced Monroe to the sideline, and leaving Joe Flacco with back-up left tackles to protect him. It hasn't worked well, with Flacco sustaining an ACL tear during the 2015-2016 season. Baltimore traded for...

CBS Sports' Pete Prisco's top 32 QB's going into 2016. Is Joe Flacco in the top 10?

What’s up Ravens fans! My name is Evan Mazza, this is my first article writing for Baltimore Beatdown and I would like to thank editor in chief, Kyle P. Barber, for allowing me to give my thoughts and opinions on the many topics surrounding the Baltimore Ravens as we gear up for another season of Ravens football. So I figured, what better way to kick things off than with everybody’s favorite NFL debate, quarterback rankings. It’s the most wonderful time of the year when training camp is just around the corner and we fans talk about where each team and quarterback ranks. But for...

List of what Baltimore Ravens fans want to see from the team in 2016 (Part 2)

Earlier this week, I talked about what Baltimore Ravens fans want to see from the team in 2016 and plenty of Ravens fans offered their opinion as to what they want to see the team improve on in 2016.
