Ravens fans have both the past and present to be thankful for

This week, Ravens past & present collided, as Ray Lewis is in the semi-finalist stage of the Pro Football Hall of Fame voting. Another Ravens linebacker, Matt Judon, received his first AFC Defensive Player of the week, within the same couple days.

It’s a testament to the Ravens code. They create linebackers—warriors on the gridiron. They’ve done this since their inception, and I’m thankful for it all.

I’m thankful for Art Modell, and bringing a team back to the beautiful city of Baltimore.

I’m thankful for two wonderful Lombardi trophies, both heaved into the sky by the greatest linebacker of all time, Ray Lewis.

We’re all thankful for Ed Reed, and I believe every fan teared up when he finally had the trophy in his gigantic arms.

The Ravens already produced three of the greatest players in NFL history, in less than 25 years of existence. Jonathan Ogden, Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, they’re all arguable as the greatest, or top three.

Thankful for Joe Flacco’s heroic Super Bowl run, and nobody can take that away from the Ravens.

This team may be 5-5 this year, but they’re still in post-season contention, and looking sharp to steal a Wilcard.

Go Ravens.
