Podcast: Baltimore Ravens Staff Writer Ryan Mink

Welcome to the latest edition of the Charm City Bird Watch Podcast! On Today’s episode, Baltimore Ravens staff writer Ryan Mink joins Jake McDonnell to talk about the Ravens.

Following Baltimore’s 23-3 preseason-opening win against the Redskins, what impressed Mink? Are key offensive players like Joe Flacco and Breshad Perriman close to returning to practice?

One of the biggest question marks surrounding the Ravens is the offensive line. With James Hurst in line for a starting job, hear Mink passionately defend Hurst, who has been heavily scrutinized during his time with the Ravens. Mink also gives his take on if the Ravens will make another move on the offensive line before the regular season.

On Thursday, the Ravens face the Miami Dolphins in their second preseason game. Mink will be there, and tells us what to expect on Thursday.

Podcast: Purple Painted Roundtable Episode 2

Welcome to the second episode of Purple-Painted Roundtable, a Baltimore Ravens podcast brought to you by Ebony Bird and Fansided. This episode airs on the Charm City Bird Watch Podcast Network.

On this episode, site experts Chris Schisler and Joe Schiller, and contributor Jake McDonnell, are back to go over the top stories surrounding the Ravens. At the time of recording this episode, 24 hours separate the Ravens from their first preseason game against the Washington Redskins. What are the top storylines going into the game? What should fans expect on Thursday? Who are some players to watch?

Of course, not all of the news concerns the game. It is no secret that the Ravens endured a rough start to training camp, particularly with injuries. Yesterday, head coach John Harbaugh lashed out at a reporter for asking about Marlon Humphrey, who has missed a string of practices with an undisclosed injury. Hear the guys’ response to this, and their thoughts on if Harbaugh’s answer was appropriate.

Podcast: Baltimore Ravens Columnist John Eisenberg

Welcome to another episode of the Charm City Bird Watch Podcast! On today’s edition, Baltimore Ravens Columnist John Eisenberg joins the program.

Recently, Eisenberg wrote his ninth book, The Streak: Lou Gehrig, Cal Ripken Jr., and Baseball’s Most Historic RecordEisenberg’s book dives into the record that will never be broken; Cal Ripken’s streak of 2,632 consecutive games played. Ripken surpassed Lou Gehrig’s record by 502 games. Ripken breaking the record at 2,131 games is perhaps the most significant record in Baltimore Sports history. After completing this project, what has the reaction been out of Baltimore and around the baseball world? What was the hardest part of writing this book? Does John have any other projects in the works? Hear this and more.

After talking about the book, Eisenberg gives us a breakdown of the Ravens as they get ready to face the Redskins on Thursday. What’s up with Joe Flacco? Will Ozzie Newsome make another addition with having the least amount of salary cap space in the NFL? How impressive does the defense look in camp? This makes for another jam-packed episode.
