Found this site that validates the F.O. special teams signing efforts this past off-season. ==> http://www.footballo...om/stats/teamst 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.

#Ravens special teams now the best we've ever tracked. Team is otherwise average. http://www.footballoutsiders.com/dvoa-ratings/2012/week-11-dvoa-ratings

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.

With so many other issues on offense and defense it's nice to see some vindication for our special teamers.

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.
