I'm not religious, so can someone teach me how to pray for a new OC to be at the steelers game?

I think the most tell tale sign of Cam's inability, comes from the behind the scene videos when Boldin says "Cam...give me somethin man, give me somethin' where I can just run by him, they're all sittin on the outs" or something like that. A WR shouldn't be begging an OC to call a type of play, there should be better communication, but clearly Cam is too stubborn....Drew Brees before and After Cam, look it up I'm telling you!

I love hearing this. Faith, family, football. Good on ya Ravens! As an aside from that, I've actually gotten to know Sheri, Rod's wife, through the course of the past few months being here. Behind Godly husbands are strong Godly wives, and she is definitely that! I love the Hairston family, and I'm so happy that the Ravens have such a solid group of Christians surrounding them and working on the inside.

Drew Brees was an All-Pro under Cam, as was Philip Rivers, as was Gus Frerotte of all people when Cam was his QB coach. Drew Brees's third best quarterback ranking of his career was under Cam in 2004. As for Boldin, you're crazy if you don't think that interplay doesn't happen all the time throughout the league.

Faith in its true simplistic definition is a belief in, or trust in, a strongly held set of principles, and it clearly has developed a sense of responsibility, loyalty and duty within our team. Whether you are religious or not, this article lets us peak inside the motivation that helps to bind and gel this team together as a unit, and where the inspiration for leadership comes from on and off the field. Whatever your faith persuasion, for this group of Raven men it is the tie that connects it all together. Football is kinda a microcosm of life!

Having faith in your team, your players, each other, yourself. That's a good thing. But as a non-religious person, I could do with a little less "God" talk. Mind you, it doesn't really bother me that much. But I'm sure not every Ravens player is a Christian, and I for sure know that not all Ravens FANS are. Just saying. Faith in the team, that's all we need to hear.

The camaraderie of this of these team and organization never ceases to amaze me. With closeness like this, it's not surprise that we are as successful as we are.

We talk about juju, football gods, special rituals people do before a game from food to underwear, or prayer, it's all very personal and can be a common thread that brings together people from different backgrounds. It is good that the team has faith to bring them closer and have a common tie.

This article just goes to show how classy this organization is. I'm glad that some of our players have dedicated their lives to the Creator. One of the best articles I've read about the Ravens in a long time.

I can't exactly say that I'm religious, but this team is amazingly close and successful, so that's got to account for something
