One thing’s for sure, and that’s the fact that a 0-3 start will weed out the true fans from the fair weather fans.  For the Baltimore Ravens, who just finished recording their first 0-3 start in franchise history this week, it’s a real test of adversity for players, coaches, and fans.

A team that is seemingly a lock for the playoffs and a potential playoff run every season, the 2015 Ravens have plenty of talent on paper but that hasn’t translated to wins on the field.  While some of those talented players have done their part, most have disappointed.

But with all 3 losses coming by a margin of 6 points or less, it’s not like the Ravens are getting outclassed and blown out every week.  They have been in every single game late in the 4th quarter, with a real chance to win despite their many mistakes and poor play.

And while the roster is filled with supposed stars who have so far failed to live up to their collective names, there are indeed a few players worth recognizing.  Sometimes we lose sight of what’s going right when everything appears to be going wrong.

As we do every week, we’ve assembled the Ravens highest and lowest rated players based on the ratings provided by the gurus at Pro Football Focus.  PFF provides a number of NFL teams with data that is used to analyze player performance.

We’ll get started with the offense, where most of the production is amazingly coming from the oldest guy on the team.
