Analyst Bucky Brooks, from, wrote a piece on the Baltimore Ravens and is obviously impressed with the off season upgrades through both free agency and the 2010 NFL Draft. He realizes that while the Ravens defense has been in the top six of the league "nine out of the last ten seasons," the offense has usually been carried by the other side of the ball. Ravens fans know this has been the rule and agree that 2010 will be the exception, with the future looking bright for QB Joe Flacco and his teammates, with offensive weapons everywhere he now looks.

Brooks thinks that WR Derrick Mason might end up benefiting more from these changes than anyone else and he sees both Anquan Boldin and Donte Stallworth being covered by the opposition's top two defensive backs, leaving the always dangerous Mason against a 3rd corner or nickel-back..

The addition of the two tight ends to support Todd Heap, plus the relentless rushing attack should allow Flacco to make the next step with dramatic improvement in 2010. Even though Brooks realizes that the Ravens defense will once again be among the top units in the league, he is not afraid to state that this team might contend for the Super Bowl on the now wide shoulders of what could be its "suddenly explosive offense."
