I like the work ethic of Bannan! Hope he brings his 'A' game Monday! Lets Go Ravens! Lets Go Flacco!

This article might be a bit premature since the Ravens have only played 2 games this year and they were both against garbage teams.

Much like Jim Leonhard, Bannan has stepped up to fill a key role. That seems to be a difference this year, as opposed to last year, in that we have experienced and adequate depth.

You forget those garbage teams both beat us twice last year! Wake up and enjoy real football in Baltimore. It's here and I believe it's going to stay. For the first time in Ravens franchise history we have a PRO COACH and a coaching staff with direction. Horray!

If you are commenting on the Raven boards on a regular basis you should already know that FireTrembly is an idiot and should just be ignored. BTW - I agree with your comments. Go Ravens

Bannan has impressed me. I think the comments are fair to call him a 3rd starter. I think this recognition will only inspire him to play harder so I think we will hear his name a bunch against the Squeelers. Damage is to be done - Go Ravens.

Thank you. I understand and realize FireTrembly is the HEAD IDIOT of all IDIOTS. It's still good to slap the idiot sometimes. I am sure you understand. Go Ravens!

We owe a debt of gratitude to the Bills for providing us with both Bannan and Leonhard.

Not really premature. Bannan has been solid since he's been here. Before the Gregg injury, he was getting snaps as Rex Ryan kept the line fresh by alternating linemen. As the article states, it's hard to be noticed when you play behind Gregg (and on the same line as Ngata). Bannan's success as a starter really is no surprise.

It's nice of Bannan to say, but I seriously doubt that losing Dwan Edwards was a huge loss for our team. The biggest loss he caused our team was the draft pick we gave up so that Douglas could replace him.

Anyone who thinks he completely fills the shoes of a healthy Kelly Gregg is a moron.

How about...Flacco is a product of combine hype, the O-line is very green and will be exposed by an explosive pass rush, we are one secondary injury away from major coverage issues, our kicker can't hit a FG from outside 40 yards. That good for you?

Congrats to Bannan on handling the Pat's backup O-line. Must be real hard to do since the Dolphins completely embarrassed their starting O-line...a unit by the way that many Pats fans consider the weekest in the NFL this year.

Better hope the Steelers don't get a lead on us...it'll be awful tough to come back by running the ball...especially with 8 and 9 men in the box.

Good to see you back in the mix. I remember how we excahnged many comments last year about the utter futility and imbecility of the Billick regime, and indeed, how refreshing this year's version of the Ravens is in contrast to prior years. If you get a chance to go to a game, the crowd feels the energy of this team, and the atmosphere resembles the buzz of a great college rivalry. I feel the Ravens have been released from purgatory, and that if we lose games, it won't be because we were outcoached.
