I don’t mean to alarm you…but this is something I haven’t heard anybody mention. By virtue of their 3-0 start to the 2009 season, your Baltimore Ravens are now on runs of 10-0, and 14-1…against teams not from the city of Pittsburgh. While it’s a bit of a double-edged sword of a stat, considering it [...]

Played Like a Raven – Ravens Defense With something to prove after the San Diego game, the Ravens defense came to play Sunday against the Browns. The Ravens entered the weekend with the #17 ranked defense in the NFL – 1st against the run, 28th against the pass, and 23rd in points allowed. Well, after [...]

B’More Birds” Nest has been nominated as one of the top blogs in Maryland! The Baltimore Sun’s Most Outstanding Blogs (or “Mobbies”) contest began today. You can vote once per day. The Nest is up for a Mobbie in 3 categories (the maximum allowed in the contest): Sports, Ravens, and Orioles. So, head on over [...]

Sure, it could have also been known as the “Merciless Beating of the Browns” game, or the “What better way to warm up for the Patriots?” game, but really, Derrick Mason becoming the 23rd NFL player to rack up 800 receptions was probably the most significant part of yesterday’s win. Not that the win isn’t [...]

After last week’s huge win in San Diego, and with a date against Tom Brady and the Pats in Foxboro looming on the horizon, the Ravens enter Sunday’s home match-up against Cleveland looking to avoid a “let-down game.” The Browns, meanwhile, are in a neck-and-neck (and neck) dogfight with St. Louis and Detroit for “worst [...]

As the Ravens have adopted “Play Like a Raven” as their team mantra for 2009 (and beyond?), we here at the Nest decided that each week we’ll give out an award for the player who most exemplified that sentiment in the previous game. And, if fitting, we’ll also call out the player who needs to [...]

From the “in case you were wondering what to get me for Christmas” department: After about 4 years of only offering Ray Lewis and the Ravens logo/helmet, the guys over at Fathead have finally stepped it up and added some more options for Ravens fans. Although the Fathead commercials have been showing him on the [...]

With a hit that he personally described as one of the greatest of his career, Ray Lewis put an exclamation point on a Ravens west coast victory that will go down as one of the most exciting games in purple history. Seriously – watch that hit again. Whether in the bar, the living room, the [...]

For the second time in 3 seasons, the Ravens travel out to sunny whale’s vagina San Diego (is that joke old yet?  It was probably old 2 years ago, huh?  Ok, I’ll stop) to take on the pewter blue Chargers.  The two teams, who each saw their 2008 seasons end in Pittsburgh in the playoffs, [...]

When the Ravens picked up wide receiver Kelley Washington this offseason, you may remember that we posted the above video as evidence of what to expect with No. 15 in town. Now, the above celebration was done after Washington scored a touchdown; however, in Sunday’s opener against Kansas City, Washington caught a 22-yard pass from [...]
