It is the time of year for victories, not excuses.
We've been hearing a lot of them from the Ravens (3-4) since the season opening debacle in Denver. The receivers are old and quarterback Joe Flacco needs time with his new ones. The offensive line is...

The Ravens aren't officially at the halfway point of the 2013 season, but they face a "must win" situation Sunday in Cleveland against the Browns.
Few like to use the phrase so early in the season, especially in a league where scenarios change like...

The Cincinnati Bengals are starting to assert themselves in the AFC North, and that's scary.
They usually falter sometime during the season when they lose two or three consecutive games, but that isn't happening in Cincinnati. Instead, it has happened...

The Ravens need a bye week.
They need to say goodbye to a lot of things, like farewell to their sorry running game. They need to say bye-bye to the slow starts, and say so long to inconsistent play on special teams and in the secondary.

When Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was asked recently about fixing his offense, particularly the running game, he said there wasn't enough time to entertain such a discussion.
He was right.
There are too many problems and not enough answers....

The Ravens can do more than just beat the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. They can bury them for the remainder of the 2013 season.
The Steelers, one of the NFL's most storied franchises, breathed a sigh of relief by defeating the New York Jets, 19-6,...

Ravens coach John Harbaugh has to modify his philosophy.
There is a time to be aggressive and a time not to be aggressive, and Sunday was one of those days when Harbaugh should have been more conservative. That approach almost cost him a game last week,...

The Ravens had a character win against Miami on Sunday. Because of injuries, they were low on receivers as well as offensive linemen. They were playing in heat and had not won a game on the road this season.
But there are still...

Joe Flacco had one of his best games. The most impressive part was his footwork in the pocket. When the Steelers got pressure, Flacco bought time by stepping up or moving around in the pocket. It might have been his most complete game of...

Joe Flacco's numbers hardly told the story. They were mediocre, but Flacco wasn't. The greatness of his play was drenched in a T-shirt, soiled on his pants and clearly evident from the slow walk out of the locker room.
The only thing missing was a...

One of my best days ever.
Last Tuesday wasn't that day, but it was the 42nd anniversary of the day the Magic Kingdom part of Walt Disney World opened — and I was there . . . at the Palm and Magnolia golf courses. Talk about bad aim.

The Ravens have taken this NFL is a pass-happy league thing too far.
When a team has a Pro Bowl running back and arguably the best fullback in the NFL, and they rush only nine times for 24 yards against one of the league's worst run defenses, it's not...
