Can A Wounded Secondary Doom Baltimore?


Hello, Ravens fans,

 

At my Web site, www.midutahradio.com, I'm going through NFL teams alphabetically and writing assessments on them. Here's my take on the Ravens. Please feel free to comment. I do love the Broncos more than any other team, but the Ravens aren't too bad, so here goes....

 

Today, I explore the Baltimore Ravens, a team with all the potential in the world but concerns in the secondary.

When one looks at the Baltimore Ravens on paper, it is easy to be captivated by the magnificence of signal-caller Joe Flacco (26 TD’s, 12 INT’s, 3,613 yards) and dual threat Ray Rice (2,041 combined rushing and receiving yards) but Baltimore has even more assets.

Offseason transactions brought ex-Cardinal Anquan Boldin and former Eagle, Saint, Patriot and Brown, Donte’ Stallworth to bolster the Ravens’ receiving corps.

Additionally, Derrick Mason (73 rec, 1,028 yards, 7 TD’s) returns as a solid target for Flacco, while at tight end, rookies Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson promise to provide solid depth behind veteran Todd Heap.

Defensively, the Ravens’ front seven should be solid as veterans Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs and Haloti Ngata are all proven commodities.

Nevertheless, Baltimore’s Achilles heel could be a banged-up secondary which has already seen Domonique Foxworth tear an ACL, thus removing him from the lineup for the season and the usually reliable Ed Reed feuding with management over a new contract in addition to injuries.

However, I\if the Ravens can hold their secondary together, this team can be a serious Super Bowl contender, but, as always, we’ll see what happens.

The opinions posted here are those of the administrator of this blog and his loyal readers. They are in no way official comments from the team, and should not be misconstued as such, even though he thinks he could do just as well or even a better job!
