Right Now in Baltimore

#ColumnNes Out in the cold and winning ugly

As the 7-3 Baltimore Ravens build confidence on defense, it's the missing offense that worries Nestor Aparicio as the schedule allows for duds to be wins.

After 26 faithful purple seasons, the Ravens have bullied me out of my seats and denied my media access

This is my story. This is the truth. And it must be told. In its entirety because it's so outrageous as to be almost unbelievable. Covering the Ravens is all I’ve ever done professionally since the team arrived in Baltimore in 1996, and this is how I feed my family and pay my bills as a small local business and AM 1570 radio operator and entrepreneur.

#ColumnNes The Ravens should be running first (and second and third) to victory

Perhaps in our haste to throw it all away, we’ve lost sight of the fact that the entire operation has been assembled to run around – and with – No. 8 and still does that better than anyone when they’re doing it the right way.
