EbonyBird.com’s 2010 Play of The Year


Today, we take a look at the Ravens’ single best play of the year.  Whether it was just a phenomenal effort or whether it changed the course of the season, this award goes to that single play that is the most memorable of the year.  Now for award purposes, this is going to be a positive play.  This year, several plays defined the Ravens season.  Numerous Frank Walker PIs that cost us wins, Steve Hauschka misses that caused us wins, Mark Clayton dropping the ball, Ed Reed pitching his interception.  But putting all of those aside, the top Ravens play of the year goes to:

Derrick Mason’s 72-yard TD catch vs Browns: Week 3- If the video doesn’t load for you (it should load easily after a quick ad), here’s what you missed.  Derrick Mason pulling down a high pass in tight coverage.  After juking out the second defender near him, Mason strolls into the end zone.  It was an amazing play in an awesome game that finally got the Ravens some national respect.  Better yet, it was a drubbing of the Brownies. Enjoy, and there’s more to read under the video.
