I was thinking he is the first one to be inducted from baltimore ,  he showed our Defensive mindset in Baltimore during the Colts Era which seems to have continued to the Ravens Era, Should the Ravens D honor him with a patch during the season?

Why not the entire team? Art is a member of the Ring of Honor.

I say yes, but I don't feel strongly either way. We should honor him in some way, but he isn't as relevant to the franchise as Art Modell is.

 

Did we have a patch for Johnny Unitas when he passed?

I say yes, just to piss off Indy. I read an article about Jim Irsay commenting on Art's passing. What does he have to do with any of this?

I mean why not have a patch for Cullen Finnerty since we seem to want to have a patch for every person linked to the franchise who dies

I'm only half joking when I say this but they could wear the same uniforms from last year. Remember, they wore an "Art" patch last year for Art Modell.

Art Donovan was a HOF DT and one of the best defenders of his time. In addition to his football prowess, he was beloved in the wider community for his humor and class. I couldn't think of a more exemplary standard-bearer for the Baltimore sports community than he was!

I voted yes but only because I didn't see the option for the whole team. Art helped keep the fires burning when it came to local football during the 13 year hiatus.

 

I believe Art with his number in the background or AD for the whole team patch would not only be a nice touch but honor a man who is worthy of it.

It makes the guys on the squad go harder if you go on the field in honor of somebody that left a mark right here in a strong football town..

I was a Colts fan as a kid,  70 was never a Raven. A great guy, he lived and died a Colt. He still is a Colt. Always will be, a Colt.

 

 Respect that, please.

 

RIP

I think something should be done for him, but I don't think a patch. I don't have a better idea though.

that's what gets me, he's not part of the franchise. but great guy nevertheless, he use to own a Bar over by the Alameda ( That's east Baltimore for the people not from here). Also isn't he in the Ravens ring of honor?
