Tuesday’s Media Day had an entirely different feel than 12 years ago.

All I know is; our guys where dressed cleaner then the board of health. I think Ray was wearing an Armani suit, with a pair of Bruno Magli shoes. Sweet!

Go Ray, Go Ravens!!!!

Baltimore Bullies is not bad... on the football field... that is the key... if we are an imposing force on the field... that is the way it is supposed to be.

But we do not want to present as THUGS off of the field! We want a locker room full of men! not wannabe men. MEN know that is a way of life...not that I am just tough but that I am everybit as responsilbe.

Responsible for my job - for my teammate... for my family for my community etc.
and being tough means not letting anything distract us from those responsibilities.

THE RAVENS organization has done a great job of drafting MEN with that type of character! beyond drafting it the have allowed the MEN Of te organization to develop it and demand of the newcomers...

When they say "PLAY LIKE A RAVEN" it means more than just on the field! LIKE A RAVEN is a personality - a way they carry themselves- being the type of MEN that goes beyond the game of football!

Ray has been the alpha male and that his cup truely runneth over!

What is wrong with being the Baltimore bullies. I loved that style of defense and our current hard nose hard hitting style of defense. With hits like Pollard put on New England, teams still fear playing us. Ray has taught many of our players it is ok to hit hard, play hard but keep it in a game context. After the game we can like and respect each other. What Ray has taught our younger players will last forever. Keep healthy, watch what you eat, live clean and above all else love the Lord and give back to others in need. This is why I love the Ravens.

For those of you who believe in "signs" - have you noticed how the B in the Ravenhead-logo of the franchise kinda forms the figure "13"?

And it's 2013...

By the start of the second half the Ravens will dominate. I can't see it any other way.

Watching the Carolina basketball game just now and P.J. Hairston took a brutal shot to the head and has clearly been concussed. I guess I better stop my son from playing basketball too

Gore will be sore. Cap will feel.... was that Pollard or Ray?

The Ravens will put a beat down on the 49ers. I want this sooooo much for Ray and the Ravens.

Dominate!

For as long as I can remember we have always been a team of good people! However, we were immature in our reaction to being trashed by the media. We would basically say if they don't respect you, beat respect out of them.

Lately, however, when we are disrespected by the media types and fans of other teams, we are shrugging it off, but playing hard without bringing attention to the reasons. So, I think we haven't changed our personnel or the way we play, except that we have changed how we react to adversity! My 2 cents....

Didn't Teddy Roosevelt say walk softly and carry a big stick. Image doesn't decide the outcome of football games. The Ravens have to bully or be bullied. I say bully bully!!

If I had my choice between the old Ravens image and the Patriots image, I would take the old Ravens any day. The new Ravens image is better though because it is more complex and colorful and more fun to explore.

Can't exactly get on board with this article. Bullies in the past - but I'd hardly say we've transformed into the media darlings now. Just look at this crap with Lewis. They're turning it into a feeding frenzy. Embrace the bad boy. That's us. Let people hate us. To heck with being liked.
