Via the WNST text service – Ravens release kicker Steve Hauschka. Damn, didn’t see that one coming. More as we hear it. Update (11/18/09 11 AM) – WNST and Aaron Wilson are reporting “rumblings” that the new kicker will be Billy Cundiff. Cundiff was 6/6 for Cleveland in 2009. He did not play in the [...]

The Ravens were able to escape Cleveland with an ugly, ugly 16-0 shutout win over Cleveland High School the Browns for their first Monday Night victory in their last six tries. However, the effort put forth by the purple and black, especially on offense, wouldn’t be enough to win on most any other Sunday (or [...]

Monday marks the beginning of the second half of the 2009 season, and we and the Ravens should be plenty eager to put the first half behind us. Going into their first prime-time action of the year, the Ravens are losers of 4 of their last 5 after starting off the season at 3-0. Although [...]

With former head coach Romeo Crennel banished to the world of no-longer-funny Coors Light commercials, we can’t dedicate an entire Lookalikes! post to his goofy lookin’ mug like we did last year. So, we had to dig a bit deeper down Cleveland’s roster this time around. Luckily though, and to the surprise of exactly nobody, [...]

We know, B’More. After watching your Ravens completely decimate the previously undefeated Denver Broncos, you were ready to book your plane tickets to Miami for the Super Bowl. Now, though, after seeing Cincy completely undress our purple heroes for the second time in a month, you’re ready to throw in the towel on the 2009 [...]

Played Like a Raven – Ray Rice After forcing myself to sit through the game again, I feel a little better about giving this week’s honors to Ray Rice. Not only was he the only member of the Ravens’ offense to board the plane for Cincinnati, but he once again did everything that was asked [...]

We interrupt your regularly scheduled Ravens bellyaching to bring you breaking O’s news! Hey, look at that! A Baltimore Oriole actually WON SOMETHING! Is it 2012, end of times, already? From orioles.com: Rawlings announced today that Orioles center fielder Adam Jones is one of this year’s American League Gold Glove Award recipients for defensive excellence [...]

After a week in which they reassured us that the sky was, in fact, not falling, the Ravens pulled a complete 180 with their worst performance of the season in Cincinnati yesterday. It was the first of the Ravens’ 4 losses where they were absolutely, unquestionably, without a doubt, outplayed and outcoached for 60 minutes. [...]

If the Ravens can go into Paul Brown Stadium and exact some revenge on the Bengals this week, they will force their hat back into the ring of serious AFC North contenders. Otherwise, they will have fallen effectively three games behind Cincinnati in the division, quite a mountain to climb with eight games remaining. So, [...]

There is plenty of familiarity between teams in these divisional games. Seeing the Browns, Bengals, and Steelers twice every season leads to Ravens’ players and coaches having a pretty good idea what to expect on the field. Also, it leaves us fans very familiar with just how goofy looking the other teams’ players are. Most [...]
