Perhaps (or perhaps not) thanks in part to Goob’s attempted viral twitter campaign to #SignHalotiNgata, the Ravens have agreed to terms with the beastly defensive tackle, according to his agent Mike McCartney. Ngata, who was playing this season under the Franchise tag, will sign his new five-year deal this afternoon, just about an hour before [...]

I was originally going to single out the passing defense – not the offense – in this week’s W.I.N. However, upon further review, I’m actually more concerned about the Ravens’ inability to move the ball through the air, and especially the complete absence of wide receivers from their game plans. Sure, the passing defense was [...]

I’m not hungover…I’m not hungover After a night of binge drinking, you can wake up in the morning and look yourself in the mirror and say “I’m not hungover” as many times as you want – the fact of the matter is, your head will still hurt. That seems to be about what happened to [...]

The Ravens go from their current most heated rivalry to one of their former fiercest rivals this week, taking on the Tennessee Titans in Nashville. Back in the old AFC Central days, these two teams had some epic battles. The Ravens were the first visiting team to win in what was then Adelphia Coliseum (now [...]

This came as more of a surprise here at the Nest than it probably should have, unfortunately. TMZ is reporting today that former Ravens Pro-Bowl and Super Bowl winning cornerback Chris McAlister is out of money and is living in his parents’ basement. From TMZ: Former NFL bad ass Chris McAlister — who signed a [...]

On Sunday, Ed Reed’s 33rd birthday, Ben Roethlisberger was feeling quite generous. The big Pittsburgh quarterback, whom Reed had never before intercepted in their careers, lofted two gift picks right to #20. With the second interception, Reed notched his 12th career game with multiple interceptions, more than any player in the NFL’s Super Bowl era. [...]

photo c/o @WNST It was bound to be one of the Ravens. After sacking Ben Roethlisberger four times and causing seven turnovers in Week 1, either Ed Reed, Terrell Suggs, or Haloti Ngata was going to be named AFC Defensive Player of the Week. It ended up being Sizzle, the proud new owner of one [...]

In the two days since the Ravens’ 35-7 victory over the Steelers (never get tired of typing that), I’ve heard several talking head and sports talk radio caller types droning on about how the Ravens were somehow “piling on” or “disrespecting” Pittsburgh when Sam Koch ran the ball in for two after B’More went up [...]

For the last couple years here at the Nest, we’ve had a weekly segment called “Play Like a Raven.” In it, I chose a player (or group of players) who most “played like a Raven” in that week’s game and gave them my e-game ball. I also picked a guy or a group to berate [...]

For all the talk over the past eight months about how the Ravens couldn’t beat the Steelers with Ben Roethlisberger on the field, they not only beat them with #7 on the field Sunday, they beat them like they stole something. Beat them like they haven’t since at least 2006, and perhaps like they never [...]
