Matt Zenitz , the University of Maryland football beat writer for the Baltimore Sun, joins Scott and Jeremy on 105.7 The Fan.
Maryland will have an interesting schedule this year obviously playing some big teams. A game that will be played at home is Ohio State and a few away games in clued Michigan and Penn State. Right now, on paper the Terps have some great players including a quarterback, great receivers, and great running backs.
One thing that is questionable is the offensive line, which will be interesting to watch especially against some of these teams.
Now to the Ravens. Zenitz says “it will be interesting to see how the Ravens play with some of the new players and coaches.” One of the biggest challenges for the Ravens this year is the absence of a Baltimore favorite, Ray Rice. That is one thing that is on the mind. At the end of last season Rice lost about 15 pounds and has been in great shape.
Defensively, the Ravens spent a good amount of money on players. They have a young defense this year but have some good players that have been there. Some of these players include: Daryl Smith, veteran, Arthur Brown, and Cj Mosley. According to Zenitz, Smith will most likely start along with Mosley. Arthur Brown should be on the watch, as well. Zenitz also said that “the defense is the best it has been in several years.”
