Ravens retired early, gave game away to Patriots in 23-20 loss

October 18, 2010

The Baltimore Ravens gave a lot of hope and excitement for this 2010 season based off of off-season actions, but so far, many fans have been none to pleased with the 4-2, 2-1 record.

Coming off two big games–one being a huge 17-14 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a touchdown throw to T.J. Houshmandzadeh with 32-seconds left in the game in week 4, and eating the Denver Broncos alive in week 5 winning 31-17—Baltimore fans should be more than happy with their team.

But nonetheless, every talk show Sunday afternoon and Monday morning was full of fans bashing the Ravens and their performance after the Ravens basically gave away week 6’s game against the Patriots as they fell 23-20 in overtime.

The first three quarters of the game, the Ravens seemed that they would walk away with the win as they navigated the field in uncharted territory–not an easy feat at Foxborough, one of the hardest fields to travel to.

The Ravens were ten up for at least half of the game and in the third, with the score 20-10, the game should have been a slam dunk.

Key words: should have been. In the fourth quarter, (more…)

Man gets life sentence for killing Broncos player

May 1, 2010

The trial for the tragic murder of the Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams in 2007 in a drive-by shooting was finally put to an end as the man who shot Williams was sentenced Friday to life in prison plus 1,152 years.

Willie Clark, a gang-member, shot Williams on New Years 2007 in a Denver nightclub after an altercation with former Bronco’s wide receiver Brandon Marshall.

Darrent Williams, the former starting cornerback, kick and punt returner for the Denver Broncos, was killed in 2007.

According to witnesses who testified during the trial, Clark did not like the fact that the famous athletes were getting star treatment.

After the Bronco’s players left the club, Clark jumped in an SUV and followed the stretch Hummer limo were he fired a round of shots, fatally hitting Williams. He died in teammate Javon Walker‘s arms.

During a hearing Friday, Clark was declared “a habitual criminal, making him eligible for the 1,152 years in prison. He had two prior felony convictions and also was convicted of 16 counts of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated assault in the Williams case.”

Baltimore Ravens 2010 draft picks rounds 1-3

April 23, 2010

The Baltimore Ravens have made some pretty big moves so far in the 2010 draft.

While in the middle of the biggest three days for football upcoming stars—and remember we are on the clock–Ozzie Newsome has made choices that are going to have major impact in Charm City.

About 90% of Ravens fans hearts were broken last night when the Dallas Cowboys swooped in and traded up to get pick 24 to take WR Dez Bryant (personally I was glad for it and had a feeling Ozzie would trade down and build up the team with more picks).

And he did just that. With pick 25, Ozzie predictably chose to trade that to the Denver Broncos (who then chose Florida QB Tim Tebow) in exchange for picks 43, 70 and 114.

Was that a smart move?

Word of advice–trust in Ozzie. (more…)
