      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

Special Teams Stats

Found this site that validates the F.O. special teams signing efforts this past off-season. ==> [url="http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/teamst"]http://www.footballo...om/stats/teamst[/url] As Kevin Byrne pointed out, this is why we are winning when the other parts struggle.

Yep, I remember seeing a tweet from them a few days ago.

[color=#333333][font=Arial, sans-serif][url="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Ravens&src=hash"][s]#[/s][b]Ravens[/b][/url] special teams now the best we've ever tracked. Team is otherwise average.

They started tracking in 1991 I think.

This from the week before:
However, the Bears aren't the only team on the Historically Great DVOA Watch right now. The Baltimore Ravens special teams have been on fire the last couple weeks, and 42.0% DVOA in this week's huge blowout of Oakland is the best special teams game in the NFL this year. As a result, the Ravens have not only passed Chicago but have also climbed into the top ten for all-time special teams DVOA. The Ravens are slightly below average on punt returns, but excellent in every other aspect of special teams. If kickers had more marginal value, we would be considering Justin Tucker for Rookie of the Year. He leads all kickers this season in both field goal value (7.65 points above average) and gross kickoff value (6.5 points above average).

Not surprising, seeing as Harbaugh was a special teams coach for 9 seasons. Great news! This will greatly help the Ravens' postseason, knock on wood.

Yeah we kinda stacked the special teams this offseason.

Also note they list us with last ranked in the "hidden" category, which I believe means we've been the least "luckiest' in terms of teams missing field goals or giving us short punts/kickoffs.

When the offense goes three and out from our 20-40, a short field is what you get. That is, when the other team's kicker isn't making the 30-40 yard field goals that we hand to him.
