Baltimore Ravens – 2014 Tickets and Preview
After winning a Super Bowl it’s almost inevitable for the next season to be a letdown and the Baltimore Ravens went through that in 2013, posting an 8-8 record and watching the NFL playoffs on television. The 2014 season is where they hope to restore Baltimore Ravens tickets to their former glory. A quick look at some stats reveals exactly where Baltimore fell short: Offense. The ravens finished at #29 in total offense in 2013, unable to generate any running game or effectively pass the ball when needed. Fixing that became the focus of the offseason.
Ravens ticket holders should know that their franchise did well with the task at hand. The new offensive coordinator is Gary Kubiak, highly regarded around the NFL as an innovative offensive mind. Kubiak added veteran receiver Steve Smith to his mix, a move that should help Joe Flaco in the short passing game, as well as take some pressure off of Torrey Smith and tight end Dennis Pita. The running game, and who totes the ball, will be decided in the pre-season. Ray Rice is a favorite, but his struggles last season, as well as off-field issues, could keep him out of the mix. If rookie Lorenzo Taliafarro, taken in the 4th Round, has a good camp, he could play heavily into the Ravens plans.
It’s unusual to announce the Baltimore Ravens as having anything but an astoundingly good defense. This 2014 version will be good but have a ways to go. Terrel Suggs is a Pro Bowl caliber linebacker and odds are good that he’ll be joined by C.J. Mosely, 1st Round pick from Alabama, as a Day One starter. The defensive line is a work in progress, with Haloti Ngata anchoring the middle, but Defensive Coordinator Dean Pees will have to find a rotation that works past that.
2014 Baltimore Ravens tickets are in prime position to bring Baltimore football fans some action in the post-season. With Cincinnati a clear favorite in the AFC North, Baltimore is playing for a Wild Card spot. The Ravens 2014 schedule isn’t tremendously daunting if Joe Flaco and the offense can get cranked up. 2014 is a good opportunity for the Baltimore Ravens to get back into that lucky dozen that have a shot at a Super Bowl.Eric Drouant
