Baltimore Ravens Roundtable: Ebony Bird Podcast Training camp Q+A


Welcome to the 38’th episode of Ebony Bird, a Baltimore Ravens podcast brought to you by Ebony Bird and FanSided.

On this podcast, contributors Joe Schiller, Jake McDonnell and site expert Chris Schisler get you ready for the start of Ravens training camp. Rookies reported to Owings Mills last Wednesday. The veterans return to the castle this week, with the first full-team practice taking place on Thursday the 19th.

Late last week, the Ravens revealed that beginning this season, only digital tickets will be accepted for games at M&T Bank Stadium. The announcement stirred some controversy, leaving some Ravens fans feeling robbed of their previously used paper tickets. Was shifting to only digital tickets the right way to go? Chris, Joe, and Jake discuss.

For the rest of the episode, the Ebony Bird gang goes back-and-forth with a pre-training camp Q+A roundtable. Before recording this show, all three guys came up with five questions each. Going in a rotation, the guys fire away each of their questions until all have been asked. If there’s certain pre-camp Ravens topics that you’re unsure about, chances are we covered it in our roundtable.

Questions included:

  1. How to the Ravens handle Jimmy Smith‘s return from a season-ending Achilles injury, suffered last December? With the Ravens seeing the Bengals and Steelers in weeks 2 and 4, should the Ravens be urgent to get Smith back on the field?
  2. How many wide receivers should the Ravens keep?
  3. How much will fan influence have on training camp now that it’s open again? Will this translate into the season at games?
