Well the 2014 NFL football season is over and it was indeed an interesting year for the Baltimore Ravens football team. The biggest incident of the year was the Ray Rice domestic violence scandal that made national news. This led to Ray Rice’s public apology and the Ray Rice suspension and eventually his release from the Ravens roster..
Ray Rice ended up being replace by Ravens running back Justin Forsett. Forsett turned out to be a pleasant surprise and he rushed so well that Ray Rice was barely missed. Justin Forsett ended up rushing for 1,266 yards averaging a whopping 5.4 yards per carry.
The highlight of the 2014 season had to be getting back to the playoffs and beating our rival Pittsburgh Steelers in Pittsburgh in the Wild Card Game. Anytime we beat Pittsburgh in the playoffs it is a beautiful thing!
The Ravens season did end on a bad note by losing to those cheating ass New England Patriots however. The Ravens were whipping the Patriots asses until they started doing some tricky plays substituting ineligible receivers. It is all good though because we know we should have won that game not to mention the deflated football scandal. I really feel that if most of the key players return and we can stay healthy the Ravens have a good shot at winning the Superbowl next year.

Some are calling the Ravens vs Panthers game the Steve Smith Bowl. One team’s trash is another team’s treasure in the NFL. The Carolina Panthers cut Steve Smith Sr. last year allowing the Baltimore Ravens to acquire this dynamic veteran wide receiver.
Steve Smith Sr. has played extremely well during the first 3 games of the season for the Ravens. He has a “Get Off Me” attitude stiff arming opponents on his way to the end zone. I call him the Lil Bully. Steve Smith Sr. has 18 receptions for 290 yards and a TD thoughout the first 3 weeks. He is emerging as my favorite player on the Ravens.
All eyes will be on Steve Smith Sr. during the Ravens vs Panthers game which will take place at 1pm Eastern time today. Many believe he will be motivated to go against his former team and he should have a great day. If the Carolina Panthers key in on Smith then it may open up things for Torrey Smith. It should be a good game to watch. Fon News talks about the Ravens cultue of building billies in the following video:

I’m sorry Cleveland Browns fans, but the Baltimore Ravens own yall asses! LOL In spite of all the distractions with the Ray Rice scandal and the fact that the Browns were playing at home they still could not defeat the Baltimore Ravens! The Ravens continue to dominate the Browns as the Ravens defeated them once again in their own house. That right! The Ravens went into hostile territory and came away with another victory. Yes, the Ravens kicked the Browns asses in their own house!
Okay, I won’t brag too much because it was a close game, but we have the better field goal kicker. We have Justin Tucker and the Browns have our exiled reject Billy Cundiff for a kicker. This was the difference as Justin Tucker kicked the winning field goal for the Ravens. Billy Cundiff on the other hand, missed a field goal for the Browns and also had a kick blocked. That turned out to be the difference in this closely fought game.
The good news for Ravens fans is that we beat the Brown once again by a score of 23 to 21. Rookie Running Back Lorenzo Taliaferro got his first start and took advantage of it by rushing for 91 yards and a TD. Steve Smith Sr. had 101 yards receiving in the game and is turning into our #1 clutch wide receiver. There was some bad news for the Ravens fans though as TE Dennis Pitta was injured and sidelined during the game.
There is nothing but bad news for Cleveland Browns fans. The Ravens shattered the hopes and dreams of the Cleveland Browns once again. This was an opportunity for the Browns to prove they belong in the AFC North but they still have to bow down to the Purple and Black bullies.
The Baltimore Ravens have always dominated the Cleveland Browns since the team has been in existence. Joe Flacco usually has his some of his best games statistic wise versus the Cleveland Browns. The Ravens vs Browns game is very important because the Ravens already have one loss in the division and can’t afford another divisional loss this early in the season.
This will be the first game on the road for the Ravens so it will be interesting to see how they react to the hostile crowd in Cleveland. The Ravens looked very impressive against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night but the Cleveland Browns look like they are much improved.
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.
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.
