Transition can be amazingly mysterious yet oddly predictable, and it’s just what the current version of the Ravens are dealing with.

A mysterious predictable transition. It’s so apparent it’s blinding. I was blinded and still may be, partially. I thought (maybe it’s hope) John Harbaugh and his staff could just plug and play, plug and play… They call it “next man up.”  We know who’s gone here in Baltimore, no need to break that down again, but post week 2 I’m more awake to the task than ever before.

The 14-6 home victory over the Browns is a division win, that’s a fact, it’s also not the way the Ravens victory looked in my head during Pre-game. That’s a nice way of saying it was an ugly win but at least they got it in division. Yes, a win is a win but come on… that is not what we were looking for. Ray Rice leaves with a hip strain, Canty with a groin and Art Brown a pectoral strain, to name a few. The WR corp is depleted and shallow even as Rookie Marlon Brown is showing real promise and progress. The linebackers are learning to play together and in which groupings…or is that the way to describe the safety play?

It’s all a fun way of explaining the planned transition the Ravens are battling. I’m on record saying it would take 4-6 games for this team to figure out what and who they are, so this shouldn’t be a shock, but it is. It’s not that I gave the team too much credit but rather underestimated change. 2 games down 14 to go and let’s hope the future is paved with better football in Baltimore than we’ve seen. Past success and current expectations dictate such. Here we are at 1-1 and looking to get better.
