Ravens locked and loaded


This seems like it should be a simple question. When I set down to write my response I assumed the answer would come fairly easy. It didn't. There's teams that made moves I liked this offseason, but I find it hard to say that any team has distinguished themselves above all others. However, if I had to choose to one it would be the Baltimore Ravens.

The move to go get Anquan Boldin was aggressive and filled a need for them. Will his presence convince Joe Flacco to actually show up for the playoffs this year? We'll see. They had a really nice draft which will help bolster an already stifling defense. Their running game is already among the best in football.

They're a team that doesn't really have any excuses left. They've got playmakers on either side of the ball and their division has been weakened with the Ben Roethlisberger suspension. The window on how long guys like Ed Reed and Ray Lewis will stick around and/or be effective is closing quick. Everything is lined up for them to make this their year.
