We’re inching ever closer to the most wonderful time of the year – real football games.  And with that comes everybody’s favorite piece of paper, the depth chart.  The Baltimore Ravens released their first one on Thursday, and there are virtually no surprises.

One guy still listed as a starter, despite his struggles, is cornerback Lardarius Webb.  Webb came out and acknowledged the fact that he has had some ‘down years,’ but swears that he’s ready to be challenged once again.

The Ravens defensive backfield, as a whole, is placing an emphasis on interceptions this offseason.  After ranking a miserable 25th in the NFL last season in this category, it’s an obvious area of improvement to target.

Meanwhile, Joe Flacco is more confident than ever, heading into a season that he believes will be his very best.  I tend to agree, and you’ll see why in an upcoming feature.

Flacco’s shiny new toy, rookie receiver Breshad Perriman, continues to sit out practices after bruising his knee last week.  Though John Harbaugh continues to brush it off as an insignificant injury, the longer Perriman sits out, the more concerns are bound to grow.
