Purple Friday Bird Droppings


Will the fans let the Ravens victory over Pittsburgh go in time for 1:00 Sunday?

I can understand why you wouldn’t. It was a game only played out before in your wildest fantasies. However there are 15 games left and we are currently tied with the Bengals for the Division lead.

Time to get back to work. Time to hit the links!

Former CB McAlister Claims He is Broke / Yahoo Sports

His quote in the article of -”I’m broke as a joke says it all.” In a small way I feel bad for him but life is about choices. He made a few regrettable ones.

Catching Up with Anthony Mitchell / The Toy Department

The back-up Safety will always be known around here for his Field Goal return during the playoffs against Tennessee.

Lee Evans Plans on Playing Sunday / ESPN

He’ll play, at least that’s what he says. We saw last week that he doesn’t have to catch a ball to have an impact on the offense.

Lewis Recalls Titans Rivalry Fondly / Baltimore Sun

This used to be a heated rivalry game back in the days when the Ravens were in the AFC Central. Good times.

Steelers Wrong on Chop Block Rule / Ravens Team Site

No surprise there. Apparently Titans DC Jerry Gray didn’t get the memo.

What Got Into the Offense? / Ravens Team Site

Is this the season where the offense FINALLY turns the corner? If so Baltimore may be Indy bound.

CB Williams Expects to Gey Physical with Britt / Ravens Team Site

Britt is just one of the weapons that the Ravens must be wary of this Sunday.

Polamalu Fined $15,000 for Horse Collar / ESPN

One of the things that shocked me about last week’s win were the actions of Troy Polamalu. A Steeler who I have great respect for. He usually goes about his business and plays at a very high level. But this past weekend he was beaten in coverage repeatedly and then tried to twist Ray Rice’s leg off. Frustration and then a fine.

Cundiff Makes First Visit to Tennessee / Ravens Insider

How many touchbacks this Sunday?

Coaches Preach Patience with Kindle and Doss / Baltimore Sun

I guess they all can’t play but the roster decisions of Albert McClellan and Laquan Williams over these two was interesting. Coach gave his usual “they are better on Special Teams” response. I hope to see both get a chance soon.

Flacco’s Chatter Filter Works / CSN Baltimore

I read this because I wanted to know what a “chatter filter” is.

Ravens Dirty Play Charges Just Sour Grapes / CSN Baltimore

More whine from the losers.

Good Times in Tennessee / CSN Baltimore

The Ravens have many fond memories of the Music City.

Offensive Line Learns New Scheme / Baltimore Sun

Zone blocking. Chop Blocking. Vets getting it done. Stay healthy and this could be a strong group.

Boldin Not Concerned with Finnegan’s Antics / Ravens Insider

If we played the Titans twice a year I think fans would hate Finnegan worse than Hines Ward. Hard to imagine I know.

12 Teams Running Out of Fans / 247 Wallstreet

I had to put this up. As an Orioles fan I suffer greatly in the Summer and simply wait until football cranks up again. I’d love to see an O’s playoff run coupled with a competitive Ravens team. The city would go nuts.
