It seems like the negatives have outweighed the positives, when it comes to the Ravens off-season.
Here are a few examples of that:
“Who will fill the leadership void on the Ravens with Ray Lewis retired?”
“The Ravens should’ve made more of an attempt to re-sign Ed Reed”
“Why in the world would the Ravens trade Anquan Boldin?”
We shouldn’t be too surprised about all the criticism the Ravens have received. It comes with being the Super Bowl champs.
However, we all should be reminded about the positives, one of those positives being Lardarius Webb.
Webb is returning from a torn ACL, which he suffered last season in week 6 against the Dallas Cowboys.
As the Ravens open up the season on Thursday against the Denver Broncos, Webb has fully recovered from ACL surgery and is rearing to go for the 2013-2014 season.
When Webb was healthy, he was in the discussion of being one of the leagues top corners. He was right up in the discussion with Richard Sherman and Darrelle Revis, as the leagues top cornerback.
What is even scarier is that the Ravens ended up winning a Super Bowl without Webb. It should be interesting to see what they can do with a healthy Webb for the whole season.
