The Baltimore Ravens followed up their 2012 Super Bowl winning campaign with an 8-8 record, 29th-ranked offence, and of course an early start to the off-season. Last year looked like an aberration, a blip on the screen for the defending Super Bowl champions, a well-run organization that had made the playoffs past five seasons and just locked up their franchise quarterback in Joe Flacco. The truth may lie somewhere in between; if last year was an aberration, so too was that Super Bowl win two years ago. Perhaps the Ravens underachieved last year, but they also overachieved two seasons ago, and a lot of the players that helped them on that surprising run in 2012 are no longer with the team. That impact was felt most on the defensive side of the ball, where the Ravens lost six key players, headlined by Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, and were left scrambling to replace their influence on a game. "Not good enough," Elvis Dumervil, one of the new additions on defence, told reporters about his units performance last year. "I think we did some good things but we left a lot on the field. I think injuries and other things maybe contribute to that, but either you get it done or you dont. So, were looking forward to that and were looking forward to taking care of business this year." "I dont know that we had that last year at times," defensive coordinator Dean Pees echoed to reporters. "Times we did, times we didnt. But weve got to have it all the time. Thats what were trying to develop, and thats what were trying to get done." Whats left is still a very good team – maybe even a playoff team – but one that cant compete with the heavyweights in the AFC, not without a huge defensive lapse by an opposing safety at least. On offence, the team almost had to award quarterback Flacco with the big contract he signed one off-season ago (six years, $120 million with $51 million guaranteed), but hes not on the level of a Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. Six starters in the AFC alone have better career quarterback ratings (an admittedly flawed stat) and that number increases to seven if you only count Kansas Citys Alex Smiths numbers after his resurrection three seasons ago. In the Ravens favour is theres no runaway favourite in the AFC North this year, rather them and two other teams in similar predicaments (Cincinnati and Pittsburgh), teams certainly capable of making a playoff run, but far from a threat once they get there. Cleveland of course takes up the caboose in a division that may look stronger than it actually is. Notes The biggest story of the Ravens off-season was Ray Rice and the actions that will cost him the first two games of the season. The fallout from the incident was as much against the league as it was Rice, which was criticized for levying a fairly lenient punishment on the running back after he allegedly assaulted his fiancé. The most intriguing free agent signing for the Ravens this off-season was veteran receiver and longtime Carolina Panther Steve Smith. Still looking to replace Anquan Boldin a year after he left for San Francisco, Baltimore added Smith, the entertaining five-time Pro Bowler, to their young and intriguing receiving corps. Outside of Smith, the Ravens were typically quiet in free agency. Re-signing left tackle Eugene Monroe, whom they traded for from Jacksonville midway through last year, was an important keep in the teams effort to rebuild their offensive line. The Ravens offence should get a boost from their new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak. Kubiak was a respected head coach with the Houston Texans and maybe deserved a second chance after the teams disastrous season last year. The former Denver Broncos offensive coordinator is a strong offensive mind. The Ravens love having a stout and feared front seven on the defensive side of the ball. They hope theyve added two more long-term pieces to their defences storied history. Linebacker CJ Mosley was perhaps a bit of a reach at 16th overall in the first round but grabbing defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan midway through the second round counts as a steal. http://www.nflcoltsteamprostore.com/Youth-Greg-Toler-Elite-Jersey/ . -- Charlie Graham stopped 67 shots as the Belleville Bulls edged the visiting Guelph Storm 6-5 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. http://www.nflcoltsteamprostore.com/Youth-Robert-Mathis-Elite-Jersey/ . The Canadians, along with Slovenia, had accused the French team of changing the shape of the athletes ski pants for better aerodynamics. Rules prohibit uniform alterations for such purposes.

Argos head coach Scott Milanovich said Saturday veteran Ricky Ray will be the clubs starter when it faces the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in Guelph, Ont., on Monday afternoon. Ray has been out since suffering a shoulder injury Aug. 23 in a 35-14 home loss to the Calgary Stampeders. "Im feeling pretty good physically," Ray said following practice. "Its just trying to get back into the groove, into the rhythm you normally have. "Im getting used to the guys running out there, timing, those sorts of things. That was the biggest thing for me this week, just try to get back into that rhythm." Toronto didnt skip much of a beat during Rays absence, posting a 4-2 record under sophomore Zach Collaros. But Rays return comes as an important time with the Argos (9-5) currently atop East Division standings, four points ahead of the second-place Ticats (7-7), who beat Toronto 33-19 at Rogers Centre on Oct. 4. "Its my first game back in a while, were fighting for first place so it is a big game," Ray said. "But its no different than any other big game as far as getting prepared and going out there and playing hard. "For me, its just getting that timing back, seeing things a little bit quicker and being a little bit more accurate and just doing the things that youd normally expect to do at this point in the season." When Ray was injured, he was the CFLs hottest passer, having completed 148-of-189 passes (78.3 per cent) with 15 touchdowns and no interceptions. If Ray can maintain that completion percentage, hed break Dave Dickensons single-season mark off 73.dddddddddddd8 per cent set in 05. The biggest challenge facing Ray now is reconnecting with his receivers and regaining a firm grasp of Torontos offence. Ray dressed as Torontos No. 3 quarterback in the loss to Hamilton but didnt see any action as Collaros went the distance, completing 21-of-32 passes for 277 yards with an interception. Former Argo linebacker Brandon Isaac played a big role in the Ticats win, registering five tackles and two sacks in his game against Toronto since being released by the club earlier this season. Last season, Ray missed three starts late in the year due to a knee injury. But when Ray returned, he was outstanding and a key reason why the Argos were able to mount a late march that culminated in a 35-22 win over Calgary in the 100th Grey Cup game at Rogers Centre. "Its similar in a sense that its an important game coming back," Ray said. "Last year we were trying to make the playoffs and get a home playoff game. "This year we obviously have a chance to win first place in the East so playoff implications are there. I just look at it as a chance to come back on a team thats headed to the playoffs. Im just trying to get back out there and play the best I can to help this team win." Toronto has been the CFLs best road team this season, having won six-of-seven games away from Rogers Centre. And Ray said the Argos relish being able to take the home crowd out of contests. "Thats your whole goal on the road," he said, "to take their crowd out of it by playing some good football and getting an early lead to where you can control the game and keep the crowd out of it."
