Well Ravens fans, another year has come to pass and we are once again reminded of those things in our lives for which we are thankful. Since our beloved football team is playing this year, on the most sacred of eating holidays, we here at RavensGab decided to take a second and remind ourselves what we’re thankful for this Ravens season.
I’m thankful to cheer for a team that is competitive and has a legitimate chance to win a championship. It’s gets tiresome sometimes to hear all the complaints from fans especially when they win.
Just stop and enjoy it.
The Ravens organization, coaching staff, and players all have their faults but in general they perform their jobs well and have earned my fandom and hard earned money over these many years. It’s a fact that shouldn’t be taken for granted.
Baltimore baseball fans know exactly what I mean.
In football terms I am thankful Baltimore has a NFL team. A team that is respected for it’s defense and for great talent, and gifted front office (Ozzie Newsome), all should be appreciated. Think of the future Hall of Fame players the Ravens will have inducted, fans should be proud and thankful. This year let’s be thankful we are in first place and beat Pittsburgh twice.
Some fans should think about not having an NFL football team for 12 years after growing up with one in your hometown. The Ravens are competitive on a consistent basis. Towards the end of the season when playoff grouping are being solidified the Ravens are almost always in the mix. One day this could all fade away and they could end up one of those teams that is always average at best and almost never seems to make the playoffs. Ozzie makes very few mistakes. The quality of talent the Ravens seem to be able to accumulate on a regular basis is very impressive.
I’m thankful for Terrell Suggs. Without Terrell this could be a defense, and as a result a team, that is spinning out of control. But thankfully we have our sin ugly, bigger than life, jokester defensive end to keep the Ravens grounded and keep them on the path to victory. Many times this season the Ravens could have folded under the pressure. Three bad losses to inferior teams, the loss of Ray against the Bengals, the ineptitude of the offense at times, but thanks to a leader like Terrell, the locker room stayed intact and the Ravens have continued to win when the games matter most.
