I know what you’re thinking. What a bunch of traitors! Two Patriots fans devoting a whole week to another AFC team?!
What’s going on here?
How can you spend so much time writing about a team that’s developed a decent rivalry with the Pats over the last few years?
Did they pay you for the good press?
Woah, slow down there, Skippy. Let’s pump the breaks.
To answer the first question – We’ve got some great Ravens-related articles for you this week. Why? Themes are fun! This will be like a themed party, but there will be no cheesy decorations, elaborate costumes, or embarrassing pictures on Facebook after the event. (Actually that last one has the potential to happen.) We had a Ravens-related opportunity come into our life after featuring Purple here and so we’re going to take it and run with it.
To answer the second question – The Ravens are not the Jets. When we started this blog, we determined that we could say nice things about every team in the league except the Jets.
To answer the third question – No, they didn’t pay us, although the organization has given us the aforementioned opportunity, which will make for an excellent post. What can we say – we recognize good material when we see it and we’re not afraid to give credit where it’s due. (Except for the Jets. We can’t bring ourselves to give them credit for anything. Most of the time they make it easy for us.)
To kick things off, we’ll give you the Ravens’ 2014 profile (yeah, we’re still writing those) to get you familiar with the team. After that, well…you’ll just have to come back and see! Even if you aren’t a Ravens fan, we’re asking you stick it out with us. (We’ll still have our regular Our Thoughts weekly game recap and Favorite Link Friday.) We promise – it will be worth it!
