Poll: Ravens' biggest concern?
By James Walker
The Baltimore Ravens are aiming for their second Super Bowl in franchise history. Baltimore enters the season with a talented roster, but it also has several holes.
In our latest AFC North poll, we want to know Baltimore's biggest concern entering the 2011 season.
Are Ravens fans most concerned about wide receiver? Baltimore released veteran starter Derrick Mason and was unable to land Malcom Floyd in free agency. The Ravens are left with rookie second-round pick Torrey Smith as the starter unless the team adds another veteran.
Is right tackle the biggest issue? The Ravens do not have a proven candidate to protect quarterback Joe Flacco's front side. Oniel Cousins is the front-runner and rookie third-round pick Jah Reid is in the mix.
Or are the lack of pass rush and backup quarterback larger holes. Baltimore only registered 27 sacks in 16 games last season and didn't add upgrades to the front seven. Backup quarterback Marc Bulger also retired. That leaves rookie Tyrod Taylor behind Flacco.
