Who are the Baltimore Ravens most important departed characters?
Haloti Ngata, the ferocious, oversized defensive lineman who has been central to the Ravens success on defense for the past nine years, is gone. In the style of defense that Baltimore plays, with only three offensive linemen, having a player as versatile and disruptive as Ngata is a must. It won’t be one but rather a combination of players who tries to replace him.
Who are the Baltimore Ravens most important new characters?
Disgraced Bears Head Coach, Marc Trestman, who was fired after last year’s debacle has joined the Ravens as offensive coordinator. Trestman inherits a good offense and is expected to make it even better, especially given the speedy new receiving threats on the team: wide receiver Breshad Perriman and tight end Maxx Williams. Perriman, drafted 26th overall by the Ravens, is blisteringly fast. Williams, drafted in the second round, is a third generation NFL player.
Who are the Baltimore Ravens most important characters?
Pint sized wide receiver, Steve Smith Jr. has announced that he will be retiring at the end of this season. While that may be comforting for opposing defenses to know, they won’t get to enjoy it this season. Everything we know about Smith from his already epic career suggests that he wants to go out, not just with a bang, but with a series of giant explosions that start on the first snap of the season and don’t end until the Ravens win the Super Bowl.
What is the most pivotal pivot point for the 2015 Baltimore Ravens?
Can they cover anyone? Last year their defensive backfield, thanks in part to a dreadful series of injuries, was so anonymous that an NFL podcast played a game of “”Ravens defensive back or character from the Walking Dead.”” Without the disruptive force of Ngata, this year’s defensive backfield will have to be even better than they needed to be last year… which was better than they were last year.
How will the 2015 Baltimore Ravens fare?
The Ravens will be solid, but not great. With all the new characters, it’s more likely they’ll be good this year and great next season.
