Hey guys, I'm Brendan Majev and as of a few days ago am the new featured columnist for the Ravens. I'll cover current stuff soon enough, but I figured I'd stir everyone up a little bit with a trip down memory lane: if you could pick from a list of every Raven player of all time, who would you pick? I encourage arguments, suggestions, and debate for this one—there are only a couple of undisputable picks. I have gone through, position by position, and picked my all time team.
Note that I am picking only the starters: 24 players (11 offense, 11 defense, and 2 special teams). I thought about picking 12 defensive players, since we have played a 4-3 and a 3-4 with great success, but in the end decided to make things harder on myself and only pick the starting 11 that I'd take to battle.
That said, this article is just the offense and the kicker. It will not be long before I make the next article, which will be the defense and the punter. I did offense first because here in Baltimore, we love our linebackers like other cities love their quarterbacks.
I have used two main criteria to make my selections:
1) Praise factor. Do I love the guy even today? If so, there's a good shot he's here.
2) Were they on the 2000 Super Bowl team? I have a tremendous loyalty to the guys who brought home a title.
Thanks for having me on board and I look forward to providing you with many great articles in the future!
