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.
The last three seasons the Ravens entered the playoffs in three different phases: turnaround, transition and tightrope walking.
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.
The following year, the team returned with a 9-7 record and perhaps ended the Patriots dynasty. Last year, the squad finished with a 12-4 mark, winning games by the skin of their collected teeth.
