Two Ravens on the List of 50 Most Important Players In 2015

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The summer of respect has continued. I still don't like it, but the media continues to prevent our team from flying under the radar this year. Fansided came out with a list of the 50 Most Important Players In 2015, and two Ravens made the list.

Stud outside linebacker Terrell Suggs made the list at 40, with praise for his well rounded game:

40. Terrell Suggs

Even after linebacker Ray Lewis called it quits a few years ago, linebacker Terrell Suggs stepped up to the plate and became one of the leaders on the Baltimore Ravens. With over a decade of playing in the NFL, Suggs continues to be one of the main defensive anchors on the Ravens’ defense.

With 106.5 career sacks, Suggs will continue to play an important part on a defense that continues to be a nightmare for opposing teams. The Ravens are a consistent team since they have a defense capable of putting the breaks even against the top offenses the NFL has to offer thanks to Suggs leading the cause.

Expect to see Suggs continue playing up to his Pro Bowl caliber and do his best to ensure the Ravens not only return to the NFL Playoffs but go even farther than they did last season. With how well Suggs does against the run or even in pass coverage, he will continue to be a force to reckon with in 2015.

The other Raven to make the list was to be expected: QB Joe Flacco, slotting in at #36. They also had praise for him, citing his stellar playoff performance:

36. Joe Flacco

While many might not believe that Joe Flacco is indeed an elite quarterback, he still continues to silence his critics when he enters the NFL Playoffs with his Baltimore Ravens. Make no mistake about it, Flacco always comes through in the clutch and makes the most out of everyone around him.

Flacco is one of the main catalysts on a Ravens’ offense that keeps those chains moving thanks to his stellar play. Considering his past success and how well he’s been doing during organized team activities thus far, Flacco is determined to continue proving his critics wrong that claim he’s not in the class of elite quarterbacks playing today.

With a second season under the Ravens’ new offensive West Coast system, expect to see Flacco continue to light up the NFL and keep pushing his Ravens consistently into the NFL Playoffs. If the Ravens are to continue their success, it really comes down to their offense and how well Flacco does. He’s truly important for their overall success in

Looks like our team is on the radar now, They should be up to the task, so even though I like them to be the underdogs, I am not too worried.
