The Baltimore Ravens have a history that is a few years younger than I am. That makes me part of the first generation of Ravens fans. As a sportswriter who writes about the Baltimore Ravens, it’s my job to share that history with you.
One of the things that I wanted to do when I started the Purple and Black Nest, was to connect all the eras of Ravens football. I wanted to connect the introduction of the team with Ted Marchibroda as the coach and Vinny Testeverde under center to the Flacco era and everything going on now. Here it all lives as one mostly glorious pot of Baltimore football history.
This is a new series that helps me with the goal of sharing that short but rich history. It’s three forgotten Ravens of the month. Every month, I will try to wax as poetically as I can about three players I respected the heck out of when they wore the Purple and Black. So without further ado, here’s the Nest Talk. The start of a new month figured to be the perfect start for this new project of The Purple and Black Nest.
3 forgotten Ravens of the month Nest Talk:
The three players for this month are Corey Graham, Ed Hartwell and Corey Redding. In the video I talk about the three players and their contributions to the franchise. It’s an all defense edition to start things off. The Ravens will always be known for great defense so this is the way to get going. There were a lot of names to choose from so it’s going to be easy to keep going with these every month.
What do you think of my selections? Who should be considered for July? Let us know what you think!
