Congrats to Birk and the Birk family. We always talk about the guys at skilled positions who epitomize what it means to be a Raven. Well count Matt Birk as one of those guys. Smart, Tough, Hard Worker, Leader, Great Family man, Community guy and just a Fighter.
It seemed like for the last 3 seasons Birk was battling some type of injury or having surgery, but he never missed a game. Birk was the questioned leader of that oline and I hope the guys, especially Gino, learned a lot from him.
I'm glad his career didnt end in NE last year and that probably drove him. He got that ring to finish off a championship style career. I hope much like Quadry, Birk comes back and does Rave TV and preseason games. He's a pretty funny guy and knows football, he'd be a treat for fans.
