Baltimore shouldn’t shrug its shoulders and ignore the receiver position, though. Adding a high-end slot receiver could strengthen its rebuilding passing attack.

Adding a quality pass-catching tight end like Penn State’s Mike Gesicki could also help the Ravens. Tight ends Nick Boyle and Maxx Williams combined for just 289 receiving yards last season.

Gesicki could help, but the Ravens shouldn’t reach if a superior player is available.

John Harbaugh reflects on the Super Bowl XLVII blackout, discusses Crabtree signing — Baltimore Beatdown

“I heard the story the next morning about some switching station outside the stadium, and I was a little skeptical. My first thought was like, maybe it was some kind of attack, and I don’t know if I thought of that or someone might of said something like that to me. And I thought like ‘oh man, we’re kind of exposed down here.’ But really, just being straight up, it’s just kind of another thing, another obstacle. Yeah it’s crazy, what the heck’s going on, this has never happened before, this is ridiculous - but that’s not really what you think about. What you think about as a head coach is, how are we gonna deal with this? How are we gonna have our guys ready? Unfortunately, we didn’t do a very good job, because we were up 28-6 and they came roaring back. They got their guys more ready.”

I’m a big fan of how/why events take place and how people handle them. This insight from Harbaugh was genuinely interesting.

How does Ravens defensive leader Terrell Suggs keep a passion for the game after 15 years in the league? Even after tearing multiple muscles, snapping tendons and an ever-changing locker room?

The movie buff uses Jean-Claude Van Damme’s character in “Lionheart” to explain.

Don’t ever lose your Lionheart because you’ll never get it back,” Suggs told Bleacher Report’s Tyler Dunne. “Until I fall short for the last time, I’m going to keep trying to go at it.”

There are other NFL warriors as old as (or older than) Suggs that are still in the league. He pointed to James Harrison, Dwight Freeney and Antonio Gates.
