When the fax debacle unfolded that forced the Denver Broncos to cut star pass rusher Elvis Dumervil, the Ravens immediately made it clear that they were interested.
General manager Ozzie Newsome reached out to Dumervil's former agent, Marty Magid, to...

The last time that Elvis Dumervil collaborated with linebackers coach Don "Wink" Martindale, he led the entire NFL in sacks when he was with the Denver Broncos.
Four years after recording 17 sacks in Denver, the Pro Bowl pass rusher has reunited with...

The Ravens always held a strong edge when it came down to recruiting and signing Pro Bowl outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil following the expensive fax debacle that got him cut by the Denver Broncos.

Ravens 17, Chargers 14
Forget the six-hour flight to the West Coast. The Ravens' offense is balanced, defense is smothering. The Ravens are peaking at just the right time.

No more messing around with pretenders.
We won’t know after tonight if the Chargers can finish their run, but we’ll know if it was over before it really started.

For the Ravens, it's simple: beat the Bengals Sunday, and no matter what else happens, they have a bye and at least one home playoff game.
They'll be the No. 1 seed, with home games until the Super Bowl, if they win and the Patriots lose. They'll be...

Is this a trick question?
This is like trying to select the valedictorian of summer school.
I'm taking Orton if my idea of success is unspectacular but decent production, enough to get a team to 9-7. If I want to put fans...
