Coming off bye, Ravens excited to have new piece against old rival

Reunited in Baltimore, Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue combined for 61 sacks in Jacksonville from 2017-19.

Campbell talks being reunited with former Jacksonville teammate Ngakoue

The Ravens defensive lineman sees the pass rush becoming even more dangerous with another prominent option in the mix.

Andrews on Pittsburgh week: “This is what you live for right here”

The Ravens will have the chance to take down the last undefeated team of 2020.

On my usual early morning tour of the world via my mouse, I clicked on ESPN.com this morning to see this headline:

“Ravens rookie Flacco earns another start”

And I thought to myself, wow, no one in the league or at ESPN must’ve seen the game on Sunday? Or, perhaps, they haven’t seen the Ravens or their quarterbacks play the past 10 years?

I was thinking to myself: “Does America think Harbaugh is going to name Casey Bramlet the starter at this point?”

I know, I know…it’s just a headline. But Flacco has turned this town sideways with his play on Sunday and now the expectations go through the roof.

But we all wanna grab onto something with the Ravens being the “only game in town that matters.” It’s been 20 months since we’ve all had anything to be excited about with sports in Baltimore. And it ended with that thud in the Colts game and we’ve been dormant like cicadas ever since.

(By the way, is it just me or have the Orioles disappeared and will be appearing next week on a milk carton?)

But Flacco, that defensive play on Sunday and “Hard-Ball” have made us want to come out of our shell this week.

That said, Chris McAlister cancelled on the “Bud Light Purple & Black Attack” last night at High Topps and might be having some physical issues. That would be a major blow and would change things if CMac can’t go.

But for now the Ravens are 1-0. The party with Brent Harris and Brad Jackson last night and more of the “WACKO 4 FLACCO” signs was fun. It was an old-school Monday Night victory celebration.

Like I said, 20 months is a long time to wait.

Sunday and Houston can’t get here quick enough for me.
