baltimore ravens

The Baltimore Ravens Professional football club was founded in 1996 by owner Art Modell who relocated the Cleveland Browns to Baltimore. The Baltimore Home stadium is known as M&T Bank (formerly PSInet Stadium). The Baltimore Ravens team is named after a poem entitled “The Raven” (1845) by American writer Edgar Allan Poe, who lived in Baltimore during the 1830s.Art Modell brought to Baltimore a muster of adept stars, including quarterback Vinny Testaverde and running back Earnest Byner. He also hired former Baltimore Colts head coach Ted Marchibroda to lead the new Baltimore team.

After three consecutive losing seasons, Marchibroda was succeeded by Brian Billick, who had served as the offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings the season before. Through shrewd draft picks and free agent signings, the Ravens rebuilt their team around a standout defense. The team was led by linebacker Ray Lewis, who became one of the leading tacklers and top defenders in the NFL. With the guidance of then coach Brian Billick the Baltimore Ravens made the playoffs for the first time after the 2000 season, by defeating the Denver Broncos in the first round of the playoffs, the Ravens thwarted the Tennessee Titans (owners of the regular season's best record) and the Oakland Raiders to win a berth in Super Bowl XXXV, which they won defeating the new York Giants, 34-7.The Baltimore Ravens Won their first North Division title in 2003 and after that season Art Modell officially transferred ownership of the team to Steve Biscotti, ending over 40 years of tenure as an NFL franchise owner.
