Reed wants the challenge

Ed Reed talked with the media after a training camp practice recently and gave his opinions on a number of subjects, one of which was the fact that the Ravens are going to be seeing some very good quarterbacks this season.
The Ravens are going to be battling the likes of Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger and the Manning brothers -- back-to-back in December but Reed said hes looking forward to the challenge.
Bring them on, man, Reed said when talking to the media last week. Im sure they are going to game-plan like they always do write his namenumber on their wristband and know Im there and all that. I welcome them. I look forward to them.
It also was easy to see that Reed wanted to make a point. He might be older, but hes still a person opposing offenses want to watch out for at all times.
The veteran safety has no doubt on that one.
Thats probably a question for you critics who said Ed Reed has lost it, but they wont throw my way, Reed said. How have I lost it if they are not throwing my way? Its a lot of respect for those guys. I never train any different or prepare any different for either game. Its always who I am going against and what we need to prepare for as a team.
So, thats the main thing Reed looks at before each gamewho will the Ravens be going against and what is needed for a victory.
Thats the point Reed was trying to get home. He and the Ravens insist on being prepared, no matter whos playing quarterback.
So, whether its Brady, Eli Manning, those guys know who we are, and they are going to run their game plan, Reed said. All we have to do is be ready.

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Enjoying a game at M&T Bank Stadium just became a little more affordable.

On Thursday, the Ravens introduced their new "Flock Friendly Fare," reducing the price of 21 of their most popular food and beverage items.  

The change comes as the organization focuses on revamping the fan experience in 2018. Fans will see an average of 33 percent in total savings and up to 53 percent savings on a single item.  

"As a lot of you probably know, after every game we survey fans to see how we're doing; what have we done well and what have we not done well. Over the years, one of the biggest criticisms we received was for the gameday concessions prices," Ravens President Dick Cass said on the team's website

Alcoholic beverages were all reduced by $1 with the addition of domestic 12 ounce beer for $5.

Chicken tenders with fries went from $11 to $7, while a slice of pizza went from $8.50 to $6. No single item will cost above $9.

On average, you will now be able to feed a family of four for $44 compared to $66.75 in years past. To see all of the reductions, click the arrow in the post below. 

In 2017, the Atlanta Falcons reduced their concession prices upon opening their brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Ravens, however, are expecting to lose $1.5 million in concession revenue due to the change.

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas has spoken and they are not optimistic about rookie Lamar Jackson starting under center for the Ravens in 2018.

Bovado, an online gambling site, has set the odds on how the top 2018 rookies will perform and they have Jackson getting 0.5 starts this season.

That number will come as a surprise considering the popular narrative that Lamar Jackson will be the Ravens' starter in no time. The team made it clear they are planning for life after Flacco when they traded back into the first-round of the 2018 draft to select the quarterback out of Louisville at No. 32

Flacco - who is entering his 11th season with the organization - is experiencing a decline in his performance of late, one that can not be put entirely on his shoulders as the team has failed in finding him valuable weapons to throw to. Nonetheless, Flacco's projected 2018 season is very much up in the air and it appears Vegas is betting on the one-time Super Bowl MVP to bounce back. 

However, the Ravens have failed to make the playoffs four of the last five seasons, and if that trend continues into 2018, the rookie could get his shot at flipping the script.

If you're a betting man, it could payoff to bet the over on Jackson. Low risk, seemingly high reward.
