The Baltimore Ravens Made a Good Run

I just got back from Florida for a nice family vacation.  Weather was great, kids were great, the only bummer was the Ravens loss to the Colts on Saturday night.  I was happy to be watching this game sitting outside at a sports bar with my good friends, but what a terrible game.

So what can we say about the Ravens season?  At the QB position, Joe Flacco looks ok.  He’s only in his second year, so he needs time to develop.  However, if he can play mistake free football, much like Trent Dilfer did in the Ravens 2000 Superbowl season, and rely on defense and the running game, we have a shot to win it all in 2011.

That gets me to my next point.  The running game is the real deal!  Ray Rice is a player.  I love that a small guy can bulldoze defenders and do some power running.  And of course we have Willis McGahee as our second runner, who is a starter on most teams in the NFL.

So I’m looking forward to next season.  I wish I could say the same for my beloved Orioles.  They need some serious help and raising ticket prices was not the place to start…
