It seems only yesterday the Baltimore Ravens were celebrating a Super Bowl win. Before the confetti got swept up, the Ravens took apart the roster, sending big names scattering to other locales and retirement. Time to pick up the pieces again and in the NFL that can take a while. The 203 NFL season was a rebuilding year and Baltimore Ravens tickets suffered through the usual Post-Super Bowl slump, delivering an 8-8 season. The Ravens won both of their Super Bowl titles with defense but more and more the focus is on Joe Flaco and an offense that right, lacks enough weapons to keep up with the big boys.
Surprisingly enough, the Ravens focus in the 2014 NFL draft seemed to be on defense, with the first three picks going to boosting that side of the ball. C.J. Mosley, linebacker from Alabama, Timmy Jernigan, nose tackle, and Terrence Brooks, safety, made up that package with Brooks probably being the best value for the pick. It wasn’t until the 4th Round that Baltimore went offense, taking Crocket Gilmore, tight end, of Florida State. For a team that’s invested their future in Flaco, they seem to be asking him to do it all by himself.
2014 Baltimore Ravens tickets bring some tough challenges. The ravens will either have to find some weapons for Flaco or experience a defensive revival. At home, the Ravens 2014 schedule includes the Cincinnati Bengals, Carolina Panthers, and Atlanta Falcons, along with San Diego. There are some good quarterbacks in that mix. The road schedule isn’t any easier as the Ravens must face the Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints, and a Tampa Bay Buccaneers squad with a revamped receiver set.
With the Browns, Steelers, and Bengals all sporting reasons to be better in the 2014 NFL season, the Ravens will have their work cut out for them in the AFC North.Eric Drouant
