Ravens defense emerges from offseason younger, faster, stronger
"It'll be different, but sometimes I've actually seen defenses where all of a sudden you lost your stars and you even became better, because now everybody has to be responsible and take part ownership for the leadership factor,'' Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees said. "Sometimes the sum of those parts is greater than the whole. There might not be the guy who was a tremendous leader like Ray or Ed, but now everybody knows they have to do a little more than what they had to do before, because we can't rely on those two alone.''
Not just different. Better. No wonder the Ravens are all smiles.
