It may appear the sky is falling in Baltimore with the news of one departure after another but the Ravens will still field a team in 2013. Yes, that was actually a question tweeted to me. It will be a competitive team that will certainly be a playoff contender. Will It be a team that can “repeat”? That question cannot be intelligently answered until August at the earliest.

Please know their is a plan in place at 1 Winning drive. While callers flood “The Fan’ (and we love them all!) with complaints about the exits of Anquan Boldin, Dannell Ellerbe, Paul Kruger or Bernard Pollard, they should understand there is a plan in place, that the club has traditionally laid out behind closed doors. In this case, at Steve Bisciotti’s place in Jupiter, Florida where organizational meetings where held last month.

Their timing in parting with veterans or free agents almost always is on point. From Todd Heap to Derrick Mason, Adalius Thomas to Jim Lehonard, Jason Brown to Jamal Lewis being among the numerous examples of players who for the most part, faded into oblivion.

Save the really harsh opinions until the season starts, fans are actually allowed to enjoy the precious aftermath and glow of a Super Bowl win that typically takes years to repeat. Nobody in the castle is looking to jump off the roof — and Ravens fans would be wise to save their angst for when it really matters.
