Lardarius Webb: ‘The Ravens will bounce back’
The 2013 season was a disappointing one for the Baltimore Ravens. After winning the Super Bowl in 2012 by defeating the San Francisco 49ers, many expected the Ravens to make a push for the playoffs. It didn’t quite happen that way however and the Ravens ended the season with a 7-9 record..
Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb is adamant however that the purple and black will bounce back in the 2014 season and reclaim their spot as one of the best teams in the AFC. He also went on to say that the 2013 season wasn’t as horrible as people think. Webb was speaking to the Baltimore Sun.
“Oh yeah, my team is going to bounce back,” Webb told The Baltimore Sun. “Last year wasn’t that bad. A lot of people want to say it was bad just because we didn’t make the playoffs. We don’t usually not make the playoffs. A lot of people want to say last year was a horrible year, but it wasn’t a horrible year.”
“There were a few games that left us out of the playoffs. We just have to learn from it. We have some young guys, and we just have to keep growing up with all those guys. I like where we’re at, and we just have to keep on going.”
I think the Ravens will bounce back. One reason they performed poorly was perhaps because they were still transitioning away from the leadership of Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Anquan Boldin and Matt Birk. All four were key parts of the team before they were released, traded or retired.
