Baltimore Ravens Cut Running Back Ray Rice

Yes, it is true! The Baltimore Ravens have cut running back Ray Rice today! The NFL has also announced that Rice is now suspended indefinitely.

Ravens vs Bengals Game Ends in a Heartbreaking Loss

The Ravens vs Bengals game was a heart breaker. The Ravens were down 15 to 0 at the end of the first half mainly due to dropped passes, a fumble, an a bone headed play by quarterback Joe Flacco. Not to mention a rarely missed field goal by kicker Justin Tucker.

The Ravens battled back however to take the lead were up 16 to 15 late in the 4th quarter. Andy Dalton then went deep to his bread and butter wide receiver A.J. Green for a touchdown to give the Bengals a 23 to 16 lead. Joe Flacco managed to drive into Bengals territory with a chance to win but the offensive line gave up 2 untimely sacks which sealed the loss for the Ravens.

The Ravens are currently preparing to play the division rival Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night.

Ray Rice’s Public Apology

Ray Rice gave a public apology for his behavior regarding the domestic violence incident between he and his wife. The incident led to Ray Rice getting suspended for the first 2 games of the season. Here is a video clip of the Ray Rice apology.

Hopefully Ray Rice has learned his lesson from the incident. He says he and his wife both plan to speak out against domestic violence in the future.

Stephen A. Smith Apologizes for Remarks Regarding Ray Rice Domestic Violence Incident

Stephen A. Smith, a well known ESPN Sports Analyst, recently apologized for comments made regarding victims of domestic violence. Smith was commenting on the Ray Rice suspension as well as the Ray Rice domestic violence incident which led to the suspension. He had said that victims should not provoke their attackers. The following is a video of Stephen A. Smith’s public apology.

Can Bernard Pierce Hold Down the Fort?

Bernard Pierce will most likely be the starting running back for the Baltimore Ravens in the first 2 games of the season due to the Ray Rice suspension. This will give Bernard Pierce a chance to shine in the first 2 games and show us if he has what it takes to be a starter. Both Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce are coming off of disappointing performances last season and were both plagued by injuries.

Bernard showed promise in his rookie season when he averaged 4.9 yards per carry. The running game was horrible last season and the Baltimore Ravens will rely heavily on Bernard Pierce in the first 2 games to get off to a good start.

The Ravens Pass Rush vs the Passer Aaron Rodgers

It will be the Baltimore Ravens pass rush versus the elite passer Aaron Rodgers today in Baltimore. The rain will hopefully slow down the offense of the Green Bay Packers. Terrell Suggs has been a beast so far this year and hopefully he’ll be able to get his hands on Aaron Rodgers. Joe Flacco tends to play much better at home and hopefully he’ll be able to do just enough to help the Ravens get the victory. I’m picking the Ravens to win at home in a very close game.

Go Ravens!!!

Ray Lewis May Haven Been Right About Ravens

Ray Lewis may have been right about the Ravens lack of leadership. Ray Lewis made headlines for this comment after the Jacoby Jones incident. Several Ravens players were offended by the comment , but Ray Lewis was probably right. I mean the way the Ravens played last week against the Buffalo Bills showed lack of leadership. The offensive line played horrible. Wide receivers were dropping passes. Joe Flacco threw the ball 50 times with 5 interceptions. The Baltimore Ravens completely abandoned the running which we all know usually results in a loss. The Ravens have yet to win a game on the road and all this points to lack of leadership.

I mean how can you replace a leader like Ray Lewis? If you don’t know what kind of leadership Ray Lewis brought when he was here then check out the following video:

Superbowl Champion Ravens Go on Road to Face Buffalo Bills

The Baltimore Ravens defense is starting to come together and has not given up a touchdown since the week 1 loss to the Denver Broncos. The Ravens vs Bills game will give Joe Flacco an opportunity to see if the offense can move the ball on the road. Due to the mass exit of several key players and several injuries, the Ravens haven’t gotten much respect this year. If the Ravens win today, they will remain at the top of the AFC North division.

The Buffalo Bills will have the home field advantage, but I don’t think it will be enough to stop the pass rush of the Superbowl Champion Ravens. I expect the Ravens to get their first road win of the season today. Go Ravens!!!

Will Joe Flacco and the Ravens Offense Get it Together?

Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense will have to step up today when they face the defense of the Houston Texans today. The Baltimore Ravens will have to do it without the help of Ray Rice as he is still recovering from a hip injury. With Anquan Boldin gone and Dennis Pitta out because of injury, the Ravens offense has struggled and are not putting up the kind of numbers that they did during their Superbowl run.

Joe Flacoo is now one the top highest paid quarterbacks in the NFL and he will have to prove he can lead the offense in spite of all the injuries. If Ed Reed does play today, hopefully Joe Flacco won’t throw him a pick six.

Joe Flacco’s Career Stats:

Ravens Move into 1st Place in AFC North!

The Baltimore Ravens have moved into 1st place in the AFC North by defeating the Cleveland Browns today. The Ravens defense play much better this week and did not give up any touchdowns this week. The offense did not look spectacular but Joe Flacco did throw another TD pass to rookie WR Marlon Brown.

Ray Rice suffered a weird hip injury during game. There was no report on the seriousness of the Ray Rice injury yet. Pash rushers Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs both recorded sacks for the Baltimore Ravens.

Final Score: Ravens 14 Browns 6
