It’s no secret that Ozzie Newsome has steadily and successfully built a winning atmosphere in Baltimore. Coming off a Super Bowl season, Baltimore is primed to become the first repeat champions since the Patriots in 2003 and 2004. With numerous new faces on both sides of the ball, here’s a look at what I project to be the starters for the upcoming campaign.

After re-shuffling the roster this off-season, the Ravens were dealt a tough hand losing Dennis Pitta for the season with a dislocated hip. Ozzie Newsome continued his usual wizardry, filling the void quickly with Visanthe Shiancoe, who spent his previous years with the Vikings and Patriots.
Newsome's focus was on the defensive side of the football this off-season, with numerous quality acquisitions and talented draft picks. Despite the fresh faces, some of the homegrown talent needs to up their efforts and help bolster this Ravens squad. Baltimore is looking to become the first team to repeat as Super Bowl champions since the Patriots in 03’ and 04’. Here's a look at three vets who need to step up their game this season.

After the 2011 season Joe Flacco publicly announced that he believed that he was the best quarterback in the NFL. This, in essence, was the true beginning of the "is Joe Flacco and elite quarterback" debate league wide.

Fans would argue that the beginning of the off-season wasn't exactly what Ravens fans had hoped. After Ray Lewis & Matt Birk retired, Anquan Boldin was dealt for a 6th round pick and Bernard Pollard was a cap casualty. Free agency was no different as departures included Dannell Ellerbe, Paul Kruger, Cary Williams, and of course future first ballot Hall of Famer Ed Reed.

counterparts for the upcoming season, I'd like to take a look at another player who could potentially step up into a larger receiving role. Dennis Pitta has quietly built himself quite the name over the past season, which concluded with a touchdown in the Super Bowl.
