3 forgotten Baltimore Ravens of the month vol. 3

By Chris Schisler

Three forgotten Baltimore Ravens of the month:

The Baltimore Ravens have had some incredible players that don’t get enough credit. Here is a look at three of those players. In the PBN Nest talk video, I talk about three Ravens who don’t get enough credit from Ravens history.

We started this series in the month of June. Our first three forgotten Ravens of the month were Kim Herring, Corey Redding, and Ed Heartwell. It seemed right to start the series of videos off with three defensive players, one of them being a starter for the 2000 Ravens defense. Spoiler alert, the Super Bowl XXXV team is represented in this month’s video, though it’s not a defensive player. I could tell you, but guys, you have to watch the video, come on (evil laugh).

We decided to go with all defense for the second straight month in July. The first player on the list that month was a great linebacker by the name of Daryl Smith. Gary Baxter and Dawan Landry made up the rest of the list.

This is the first video that I have done for the forgotten Baltimore Ravens of the month series where it wasn’t all defense. Sticking with the trend though, I tried to pick three different time periods of Ravens history. I have one player from the Super Bowl XXXV run, another who played for Brian Billick’s Ravens and one who played for the Ravens in the Joe Flacco/John Harbaugh Era.

I hope you’re into this stuff as much as I am. The forgotten Ravens videos are easily one of the most fun things we do at the Purple and Black Nest. Now that Ravens training camp is underway, we’ll have more and more content rolling out. PBN is your home for all things to do with the Ravens lure, and everything going on with the Ravens right now.

Baltimore Ravens: Top 10 Defensive Linemen in franchise history

By Chris Schisler

The Baltimore Ravens are known for dominant defense. This is why ranking the Baltimore Ravens top defensive linemen of all-time was a fun thing to do. Here’s a spoiler alert, all the starters from the Super Bowl XXXV defense made the rankings. That is in the discussion for the best defensive line units of all-time. I personally don’t think it’s debatable, the 2000 Ravens defense was the greatest of all-time.

When you do a top 10, honorable mentions are always good to have. The Baltimore Ravens had more than 10 players I could have put on the list. One player that missed the list was Michael Pierce. He was a very solid defensive tackle for the Ravens. He had 151 total tackles for the Ravens in four seasons.

Another player that didn’t make the rankings was Dwan Edwards. He had 120 total tackles in a five-year run with the Ravens to start his 11 year NFL career. He had his best years with the Carolina Panthers, but he had some strong moments with the Ravens. Derek Wolfe and Calais Campbell have a chance to join the ranks of the best defensive linemen. The way that Wolfe played last year made me very tempted to give him a spot here.

I was always a big Lawrence Guy fan. He had three years with the Baltimore Ravens. He’s a rare free agent from the Ravens who actually took a step up after his departure from Baltimore. He’s been a great player for the New England Patriots.
