Not to be over looked

Recommended Posts

The Ravens Special Teams unit is very strong this season.

And with the threat that Koch poses to throw for first downs this is one of the best Ravens Special Teams units of all time.

Right now I have them at #2 behind the 2000 squad.

Anybody remember Anthony Mitchell? :yeah:




5) The Ravens won their special-teams Super Bowl.

The Ravens and Lions came in first and third, respectively, in special-teams efficiency, according to Football Outsiders.

Baltimore coordinator Jerry Rosburg lavished praise on his Detroit counterparts during the week, so he had to be thrilled watching his guys outperform the Lions in the third phase of the game.

Justin Tucker reminded us of his immense value, hitting from 38, 46 and 51 yards while his Detroit counterpart, Matt Prater, missed a field-goal attempt and an extra-point try.

It’s easy to take Tucker’s excellence for granted, but his accuracy on long field goals continues to be a marvel.

Harbaugh noted that the Ravens also did an excellent job blocking Detroit’s unusually aggressive field-goal defense. Not to mention they gained 108 return yards compared with 56 for the Lions.

Michael Campanaro’s fumble, which the Ravens recovered, was one of the few obvious miscues for Rosburg’s crew.

If the Ravens do end up in the playoffs for the first time in three years, their special-teams excellence will be a major reason.....http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/ravens/ravens-insider/bs-sp-ravens-five-things-lions-1204-story.html


I never jumped out of a chair and yelled so loud in my life! :gorave:
