Another Preseason win, but what is becoming more and more clear is our lack of pass rush and our lack of depth at CB. Ravens need to consider converting a WR that is likely to get cut into a CB, or sign someone else out there, because this can be painful. Ravens also had a tendency to not tackle. I’m not an expert, but this could be bad as well. It’s still early, and I expect these cob webs to clear up before the first game. ’cause if they don’t… well, let’s just hope that they do!
First preseason is out of the way, and no key injuries… Running game looks to be by committee, so don’t be banking on a Ravens RB in your fantasy league… Questionable Offensive Line off to a decent start, but only time will tell… NFL is working up a plan for a mandatory suspension of 4 to 6 games for domestic violence cases, after taking significant heat for the perceived light sentence on Ray Rice…
Well, the Ray Rice penalty saga has finally come to a close, or has it. There has been severe backlash from many non-Baltimore outlets claiming that the penalty was too light. Many fans have said that it would have been better to hit him with 4 games, and then cut it back to 2 after an appeal. Personally, this is about what I expected, but I think the Ravens should have preemptively suspended Rice 2 games, and challenge the league to pile on. The nfl would look more favorably upon the situation if it thought the team was on top of the discipline, but the team is also dealing with 4 other incidences as well, which are all drawing attention away from the real topic: Training Camp, which is now in the thick of it with the first preseason game next Thursday at home against the San Francisco 49ers.
Hey Roost #4 members & friends!
C’mon-out to Kelsey’s from 6-9pm tonight (Thursday, July 31st) for some acoustic guitar and vocal entertainment by fellow Roost #4 member, Craig Rosendale. Ravens 1st preseason game is only 1 week from today!
Oh well, our streak of consecutive days without an arrest is over, with Jimmy Smith being picked up on disorderly conduct, or more commonly known as operating without a brain. In summary, he was helping a female friend who obviously had too much to drink, and was unconscious. When emergency personnel arrived on the scene, he revised to give way to medical personnel… Ravens to hold auditions for singing the national anthem on Tuesday… Training camp starts on Thursday, with Quarterbacks, rookies and injured veterans reporting to training camp.
Ravens Roost #4 held their Buzz Suter Memorial Golf Classic at Fairway Hills Golf Club in Columbia, MD on Saturday, June 28th. The luncheon and awards ceremony followed back at Roost #4′s home, Kelsey’s. It was another great year of golf! Thanks to Frosty Volmer for once again making the event a big success … and thanks to all those who volunteered, sponsored holes, and golfed with us! Enjoy the pictures from the tourney!
Another Great year in Ocean City at the Ravens Roost Convention. Check out the pictures below for all the fun.
WR Steve Smith and CB Lardarius Webb have a flare up at mini-camp, but should be worked out within the team… Of larger note is that the Redskins trademark has been revoked. They are still protected during the appeals process, but it is expected that a name change may be forthcoming to avoid a length court battle. Although they will probably play this season as is, one theory suggests that they will drop the appeal after the season, and unveil plans for a new name, Washington Warriors, using the same logo and colors. Dan Snyder had the name already trademarked for an arena football league team, for a now defunct league. Stay tuned, as we will have to work hard at coming up with new, derogatory names for the team.
