TweetWell, Baltimore, it's a new day. Nah ... didn't work. I thought a night's sleep would make the sting go away, but it didn't yet. Lee Evans had a game-winning touchdown pass in his breadbasket and had it knocked away, and Billy Cundiff missed a 32-yard kick that would have sent it into overtime. Let's […]

Not much is new in Baltimore this week. http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/20/not-much-is-new-in-baltimore-this-week/ Fri, 20 Jan 2012 16:57:04 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/20/not-much-is-new-in-baltimore-this-week/

TweetI'll go along with the fact that Ed Reed shouldn't have told Sirius Radio the things he did, and Joe Flacco had a right to speak to Reed directly and pretty much ask, "What's up with THAT?" But it's over now, or so we're being told by those - as they say - close to […]

Injuries become the Ravens’ chief opponent http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/02/injuries-become-the-ravens-chief-opponent/ Tue, 03 Jan 2012 03:50:25 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/02/injuries-become-the-ravens-chief-opponent/

TweetMission accomplished. Well, mostly. The Ravens will have that cherished, home playoff game in two Sundays, their reward for beating Cincinnati yesterday. What was accomplished wasn't all they wanted, though, because that would have been home field throughout the playoffs. It appears that was asking a bit too much. New England spoiled that by beating […]

The urgency of getting Lewis back http://ballhyped.com/2011/12/13/the-urgency-of-getting-lewis-back/ Tue, 13 Dec 2011 21:21:43 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/12/13/the-urgency-of-getting-lewis-back/

TweetCoach John Harbaugh has held Ray Lewis out for four weeks, and for four weeks, the defense has been fine without him. But San Diego's offense is a step up from Cleveland's, Indy's, and Cincinnati's, and Lewis will be needed more now. Considering the news today from the league office that the Ravens will clinch […]

The show must go on despite Westminster memories http://ballhyped.com/2011/12/03/the-show-must-go-on-despite-westminster-memories/ Sat, 03 Dec 2011 21:37:15 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/12/03/the-show-must-go-on-despite-westminster-memories/

TweetWhen the news broke of the Ravens deciding not to return to McDaniel College for what has always been a beloved, summer ritual, I felt the same as anyone who always gets so much enjoyment out of watching them drill, cheering good plays, and getting so close to the players you could talk to them, […]

TweetStuffed and roasted, not to mention sacked. Nine times. That's how the Ravens treated the 49ers in last night's brother vs brother special. One could call that defensive domination for the most part, including Terrell Suggs' three sacks of Alex Smith.

Bring on the turkey and the 49ers http://ballhyped.com/2011/11/24/bring-on-the-turkey-and-the-49ers/ Thu, 24 Nov 2011 17:24:41 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/11/24/bring-on-the-turkey-and-the-49ers/

TweetWelcome to the Thanksgiving edition of Bleacher Bum. To address what's first and foremost, Ray Lewis is listed as questionable and is a mystery until gametime. If he doesn't play, the task of stopping Frank Gore and the 49ers' offense will be a tall one. Working against them is the fact that they had to […]

A compressed workweek follows a big win http://ballhyped.com/2011/11/21/a-compressed-workweek-follows-a-big-win/ Tue, 22 Nov 2011 03:42:13 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/11/21/a-compressed-workweek-follows-a-big-win/

TweetThe faction that thought Ray Rice should run the ball more, which was 99 percent of Baltimore and most of the Ravens' clubhouse, won today. As if that school of thought needed any proof. Rice's 20 carries for 104 yards and two touchdowns did the trick in the Ravens' victory over Cincinnati, restoring ownership of […]

TweetWhen Torrey Smith dropped the one in the end zone on second and eight with 42 seconds left, how many of you would have given up on him, considering the other drops and the holding call that ruined Ray Rice's 76-yard touchdown on the first play of the game?

TweetPittsburgh week will reach a crescendo at 8:20 p.m. Sunday, but I thought a high point of the past few days was when Terrell Suggs was being interviewed and actually asked Hines Ward to please (and he said please) play Sunday. "I'm lookin' right at you. 86, I need you to play. I need you […]

Fool’s gold, or a revival just in time for Pittsburgh? http://ballhyped.com/2011/10/31/fools-gold-or-a-revival-just-in-time-for-pittsburgh/ Mon, 31 Oct 2011 16:33:26 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/10/31/fools-gold-or-a-revival-just-in-time-for-pittsburgh/

TweetThe Ravens played 30 minutes of football Sunday, and fortunately for them, it was the right 30. Despite waking up and producing more quality moments in the second half than we've seen in the past two weeks, this was a game no one except Rice, Boldin and Terrell Suggs should be too proud of.

This frustration is taking a while to dampen http://ballhyped.com/2011/10/26/this-frustration-is-taking-a-while-to-dampen/ Wed, 26 Oct 2011 17:12:15 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/10/26/this-frustration-is-taking-a-while-to-dampen/

TweetSo, I thought I'd wait until today to say anything about Monday night's atrocity in Jacksonville. Let the emotions subside, I thought. Sleep on it. Never write anything in anger. Write the blog when everything's a little clearer in the light of day. So much for that.
