The city of Baltimore could be described as a hybrid city. A small city with a big population; a clean city with a gritty interior; and, in the case of football, a pro football palace with a college football atmosphere.

With the NFL lockout seemingly coming to an end, there is one team who must claim that Lombardi trophy. Not surprisingly, that team is the Ravens.

In 2008, on the back of rookie head coach John Harbaugh, rookie quarterback Joe Flacco, and Ray Lewis' hard-nosed defense, the Ravens went from 5-11 to 11-5 and an AFC title berth.
