These are dark days for the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens. Gone are the days of suffocating defense, a potent rushing attack, and the respect of NFL teams and fans the country over. The proud franchise, Super Bowl winners in 2000 and perennial contenders for the league’s highest accolade, have been reduced to the ugly stepchild of the AFC North division.
There are a number of targets for finger pointing here in Charm City. Inept play calling, an aging defense, injuries, inconsistency – from Week 1 it created a melancholy in the city’s fandom, which has now translated into a seething frustration.
This is The Ebony Bird. It will be a place for honest discussion on everything Baltimore Ravens, and an platform for humor, venting, and Kyle Boller sightings in local bars. While things may not look the best for Baltimore’s favorite team, that doesn’t mean we still can’t toast a few beers and lament together.
