AFC North Baltimore Ravens



Finished 2004 season 9-7, 2nd place in the AFC North behind Pittsburgh

Key returning starters:
Jamal Lewis – RB
Todd Heap – TE
Kyle Boller – QB
Ray Lewis – LB
Ed Reed - S

The Ravens coming off a disappointing season after missing the playoffs, are looking to re-emerge as a power house team that won a Super Bowl only a few years ago. The question this year for the Ravens, will this be Boller’s break out season? No more legal troubles for Lewis, a healthy Todd Heap and additional solid WR should make this a scary offense. In combination with one of the best defenses in the NFL in recent years, will the Ravens rebound?

2004 Stats:
Ranked 31st overall in offense, #16 ranked in AFC
Ranked 6th overall in defense, #4 ranked in AFC

Your thoughts on the Baltimore Ravens this upcoming 2005 season...strengths/weaknesses and your prediction on where they will finish in the division.

The Ravens biggest downfall last season was the legal trouble of Lewis - now that has been resolved, Lewis is going to greatly help this team get back into the playoffs.

Boller had an average year last season, wasn't great but it wasn't Eli-Manningish either.

That defense is just sick, Ray Lewis is just flat out nasty and is the best LB in the game.

With that said, I look for the Ravens to finish above the Steelers and win the AFC North this year. If Boller can produce, have a 3000k season with 20+ TD, it's very much possible this team could be in the AFC title game.

Their defense will be tested though, week #1 against the Colts, also having to play the Jets, then a 4 game stretch towards the end of the season where the Ravens are @ home against the Texans, @ Denver then home to GB and Minn.

This offense was anemic at best last year and it would be optimistic to call it asthmatic this year. Jamal Lewis is on the downslide and will be lucky to break 1,000 especially because the passing game intimidates no one anymore. This team will be lucky to break .500 this year.

Damn OTG that is harsh! I actually think the Ravens will win the division. i think there Defense still kicks ass and should have a stellar season. Ed read has to be one of the best defensive back in football, not to mention big Ray Ray lurking around like a hooligan waiting for running backs to cross his path so he can smash them like bugs. As for the offense, I'll agree it was enemic last season but I think Boller is gonna change the tide and have a break out season and Jamal Lewis will rush for 1200 yards guaranteed! Todd Heap is a big time tight end who makes big time plays which should open up the outside lanes for new addition wide reciever Derrick Mason and stand out rookie Mark Clayton. I think that was the major peices of the puzzle that the Ravens needed to put them over the top WIDE RECIEVERS. I'm calling it now 12-4 1st place. Any thought on that prediction fellas?

I agree,

I love European PGA. and recently I have bought stock in it. Not like real stock on Wall street, but a stock market that is strictly for sports.

You have seen it? Its pretty cool. You buy issues for your favorite golfers and you make real money. Not like a fake stock simulator. I cash out Dividends each time your golfer plays in a tournament. Also I can sell my players stock when the price goes up.

check it out if something like this interests you.
heres a link http://allsportstrading.com

This site has lots of data about dividends and game pots and golfers. It also has alot of information about how the market works.



See you there!
