Ravens Justin Forsett the top pass blocker per PFF

Forsett not just good at running the ball.... Running backs have many roles in a football game, whether it be carrying the ball, pass blocking, acting like a decoy, or going out for a pass. Although most people only pay attention to the stats a back puts up, the little things are often the things that endear them to their coaches and teammates, and keep them on the field. Justin Forsett began his Ravens career as a veteran journeyman backup who was filling in behind Bernard Pierce and Lorenzo Taliaferro until Ray Rice came back from suspension.

Ravens roster breakdown: Running Back

One of the quieter battles this preseason is at the running back position. While the Ravens have their starter in Justin Forsett, they are looking for the second and third string players to take up some of the short yardage situations and keep Forsett fresh all season long. So far second year rusher Lorenzo Taliaferro had been seeing most of the action and performing incredibly well, but with an MCL injury, he is expected to miss a few weeks at the start of the season. That injury gives someone else on the roster a chance to step up and strut their stuff. The locks to make the roster are...

If there is one player that has stood out over the first 2 weeks of the pre-season for the Baltimore Ravens, the diminutive Terrence Magee would be it.

Magee is a former high school quarterback, but he played wide receiver and running back for LSU in college. With the injury to Lorenzo Taliaferro, a lock to make the roster as a backup to starter Justin Forsett, there is now...

2015 Ravens Preseason: Analyzing the Offense's first drive

The Ravens first drive was a thing of beauty. Driving 80-yards for the touchdown, utilizing both the ground and the air in their attack, we saw what the Ravens have in store this season. 1st and 10 Pass to Kyle Juszczyk - Gain of 7 yards On this play, the Ravens come out in a 'I formation' with Juszczyk as the lead blocker for running back Justin Forsett. Play action draws the Saints defensive line crushing in, releasing the fullback to the outside. Kenny Vacarro misses containment thinking that it is a running play coming his side and allows Juszczyk to get separation for an easy...
