The week four loss may be my fault. I failed to post an article introducing the New Orleans Saints. I will make sure I do not do that again…if we don’t lose another game…you know who to blame!
During the off-season I worked on a Miami Dolphins preview guide that is available exclusively on iTunes for the iPad. You can pick up your free copy here.
This week the Dolphins will face the defending Super Bowl Champions Baltimore Ravens and while the team has looked far less than a SB Champ they still present a very dangerous opponent. So who are they?
Head Coach – John Harbaugh
GM – Ozzie Newsome
Owner – Stephen J. Bisciotti
2013 NFL Draft
Matt Elam – Safety – Florida
Arthur Brown – LB – Kansas State
Brandon Williams – DT – Missouri Southern State

Ricky Wagner – OT – Wisconsin
Kapron Lewis-Moore – DE – Notre Dame

The Baltimore Ravens lost seven starters from last seasons Super Bowl team including Miami Dolphins LB Dannelle Ellerbe
The head to head record is tied with five wins apiece.
The last meeting between the two clubs was in 2008 with the Ravens winning 27-13. In 2007 the Dolphins beat the Ravens in OT to give the Dolphins their only win of the season leading to Cam Cameron’s one and done head coaching job.
In 1996 the Cleveland Browns owner Art Model packed up his team and moved them to Baltimore overnight. It was a similar move that was performed by the Baltimore Colts on their way to Indianapolis. Model at the time complained openly about the Colt’s move only to do the same years later. The city of Cleveland petitioned and threatened to sue the NFL in order to keep the rights to the team name “Browns”.
