This year’s Ravens aren’t pretty, but they know how to win.

I must say that after reading this blog, the ends of my lips curled upwards. Thank you for putting things into perspective. I know, like many Ravens fans, or sports fans in general, we get riled up easily over perceptions, whether real or imagined. But to know our team isn't the prettiest just shows they represent the type of people we are in Baltimore and surrounding areas; we work for what we want! When/If we have the privilege that so few teams have of re-lifting that Lombardi trophy again, we will have earned it based on exactly what Jacoby mentioned: "[We've] work[ed] hard, [were] hungry and [were] humble"! I LOVE MY CITY!!!!!

You always seem to know how to put a positive spin on things, Mr. Byrne. The Ravens have a public relations leadership as good as their special teams.

Keven has a way of putting things into a perspective that makes me want to run through a wall and knockj it down and screem to the worls that I am proud to be a Raven. And I say that as if I am part of the team becuase I feel we are. The Raven nation is a part of the team, along with the players, coaches and staff. The fans are the ones that are jumping on the bandwagon. I have purple in my blood!

@tray...great post man.

Lets not kid ourselves, we'd love both offense and defense to reach their full potential and be top 10 in the NFL, but if the Ravens are able to get it done this year, myself and every other person who is unhappy with the play would be happy. People always talk about the window closing and how the Ravens need to win now because Ray will leave soon. Well i think the Ravens are showing that their window is wide open.

I honestly can't imagine what this team would be like if everything really came together and reached their full potential. Scary imo

i love positive articles . I think we are better then the stats show we have cut the amount of yards we give up almost in half i don't think its an accurate assessment of where we are at .

Wow! What more can these Ravens do? Jones' simple statment speaks volumes.

Kevin Byrne does it again. Putting things in perspective that, under some circumstances, may have been forgotten. Awesome article!!!

It's like the old sign said: the "Raven Way"!

Ya see, this is what I love about our guys - not flashy, just hard corps!

We don't need Cam's sexy deep passing game to be successful! We draft the right guys! Plug up holes with the right FAs and go out and play "smash-mouth" football!

Then, our guys go into communities that embrace the purple and black and lend a hand!

In the 70's, former Colt, Glen "Shake & Bake" Doughterty financed and constructed a bowling alley/activities center that bears that name in a down-trodden area of West Baltimore that still supports the community to this day! That's how the Colts did it - that's not lost on the Ravens!

@Ravensfan23: I totally agree with you. People like when the Ravens aren't sure what they want to be--Offensive or Defensive. But, as you said, when it does come together that well known substance will hit the fan!!!
