On November 6, 1995, then-Cleveland Browns owner Art Modell announced his intention to move the team to Baltimore, citing the inadequacy of Cleveland Stadium and the lack of a sufficient replacement along with his heavy debt. The decision triggered a flurry of legal activity that ended when representatives of Cleveland and the NFL reached a settlement on February 8, 1996. It stipulated that the Browns' name, colors, and history of the franchise were to remain in Cleveland, including past records and the attribution of its Pro Football Hall of Fame players. A reactivated Cleveland Browns team would then begin play in 1999, while Modell's relocated club would technically and legally be an expansion team, the Ravens.[1] Still, some consider the Ravens and the pre-1995 Browns organization as one continuous entity, using terms like "The Modell organization" or "Art Modell's franchise" to denote it.[2] // This article details the history of the Baltimore Ravens, a professional American football team which plays in the National Football League. ...

In 1994 Baltimore's Canadian Football League team adopted the name "Baltimore CFL Colts", but later were forced by the N.F.L. to drop it and became known as the Baltimore Football Club (Baltimore F.C.). The team reached the championship game in its first season and won the Grey Cup in its second season as the Baltimore Stallions. The team proved a success and the fans showed up in droves to show a great appetite for professional football in Baltimore.

After relocating his franchise, retaining the current contracts of former Browns players and personnel as per the agreement made by the city of Cleveland and the NFL, owner Art Modell hired Ted Marchibroda, who had previous experience with the Baltimore Colts during the 1970s and the Indianapolis Colts during the early 1990s, as head coach. Ozzie Newsome, the Browns' tight end for many seasons, joined Modell in Baltimore as director of football operations. He was later promoted to Vice President/General Manager.

Focus groups, a telephone survey, and a fan contest were all held to help select a new name for Modell's relocated club. Starting with a list of over 100 possible names, the team's management reduced it to 17. From there, focus groups of a total of 200 Baltimore area residents reduced the list of names to six, and then a phone survey of 1000 people trimmed it down to three, Marauders, Americans, and Ravens. Finally, a fan contest drawing 33,288 voters picked "Ravens", a name that alludes to the famous poem, "The Raven", by Edgar Allan Poe, who spent the latter part of his life in Baltimore, and is also buried there.[3] For other uses, see The Raven (disambiguation). ...

Baltimore then began the 1998 season by moving into their new stadium Raven Stadium (eventually the stadium would be called PSINet Stadium and later M&T Bank Stadium). Testaverde, who had left for the New York Jets, was replaced by former Indianapolis Colt Jim Harbaugh, and later Eric Zeier. Cornerback Rod Woodson joined the team after a successful stint with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Priest Holmes started getting the first playing time of his career and ran for 1,000 yards, but the Ravens finished with a 6-10 record.

After three consecutive losing seasons, Marchibroda was succeeded in 1999 by Brian Billick, who had served as the offensive coordinator for the record-setting offense of the Minnesota Vikings the season before. The 1999 season showed a marked improvement, as quarterback Tony Banks came to Baltimore from the St. Louis Rams and had the best season of his career with 17 touchdown passes and an 81.2 pass rating. He was joined by receiver Qadry Ismail, who posted a 1,000-yard season. The Ravens struggled early starting 3-6 but managed to finish with an 8-8 record.

2000 season — Super Bowl champions

Banks shared playing time in the 2000 regular season with Trent Dilfer. Both players put up decent numbers (and a 1,364-yard rushing season by rookie Jamal Lewis helped too) but the defense, led by current Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis, became the team's hallmark and bailed a struggling offense out in many instances through the season. Ray Lewis was named Defensive Player of the Year. Two of his defensive teammates, Sam Adams and Rod Woodson, made the Pro Bowl. Baltimore's season started strong with a 5-1 record. But the team struggled through mid-season, at one point going five consecutive games without scoring an offensive touchdown. In spite of the offensive drought, the team still managed 2 wins during that stretch. The team regrouped and won each of their last seven games, finishing 12-4 and making the playoffs for the first time.

During the 2000 season, the Ravens defense broke two notable NFL records. They held opposing teams to 165 total points, surpassing the 1985 Chicago Bears mark of 198 points for a 16 game season as well as surpassing the 1986 Chicago Bears mark of 187 points for a 16 game season, which at that time was the current NFL record.

Since the divisional rival Tennessee Titans had a record of 13-3, the Ravens had to play in the wild card round. They dominated the Denver Broncos 21-3 in their first game. In the divisional playoff, they went on the road to Tennessee. Tied 10-10 in the fourth quarter, an Al Del Greco field goal attempt was blocked and returned for a touchdown by Anthony Mitchell, and a Ray Lewis interception return for a score put the game squarely in Baltimore's favor. The 24-10 win put the Ravens in the AFC Championship against the Oakland Raiders. The game was rarely in doubt. Shannon Sharpe's 96-yard touchdown catch early in the second quarter, followed by an injury to Raiders quarterback Rich Gannon, was crucial as the Ravens won easily, 16-3.

Baltimore then went to Tampa for Super Bowl XXXV against the New York Giants, cruising to a 34-7 win for their first champioship in franchise history. The Ravens recorded four sacks and forced five turnovers, one of which was a Kerry Collins interception returned for a touchdown by Duane Starks. The Giants' only score was a Ron Dixon kickoff return for another touchdown (after Starks' interception return); however, Baltimore immediately countered with a TD return by Jermaine Lewis. The Ravens became only the third wild card team to win a Super Bowl championship.

In 2001, the Ravens attempted to defend their title with a new quarterback, Elvis Grbac, but an injury to Jamal Lewis and poor offensive performances stymied the team. After a 3-3 start, the Ravens defeated the Minnesota Vikings in the final week to clinch a wild card berth at 10-6. In the first round the Ravens showed flashes of their previous year with a 20-3 blowout over the Miami Dolphins, in which the team forced three turnovers and outgained the Dolphins 347 yards to 151.

2003 draft

In 2003, the Ravens were involved in one of the strangest draft day incidents in the history of the NFL. The Ravens--in desperate need of a franchise quarterback--had arranged to swap first round picks with the Minnesota Vikings, moving them up from 10th to 7th and allowing them to draft Marshall quarterback Byron Leftwich. However, the Jacksonville Jaguars--slated to pick 8th that year--also coveted Leftwich and did not want the Ravens to move ahead of them. In a clever move of gamesmanship, Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio, a former Ravens assistant, flooded the NFL league offices with phone calls so that the lines would be busy when the Ravens and Vikings attempted to make their trade official. As a result, the trade never went through, and time ran out on the Vikings' 7th pick. With no pick made, control moved to the 8th pick, owned by Jacksonville, which they used to select Leftwich.

The Ravens were slated to face the Indianapolis Colts in the second round of the playoffs, in the first meeting of the two teams in the playoffs. Many Baltimore and Indianapolis fans saw this historic meeting as a sort of "Judgement Day" with the new team of Baltimore facing the old team of Baltimore (the former Baltimore Colts having left Baltimore under questionable circumstances in 1983). In one of the most bizarre playoff games in NFL history, both Indianapolis and Baltimore were held to scoring only field goals as the two defenses slugged it out all over M&T Bank Stadium. McNair threw two costly interceptions, including one at the 1-yard line. The eventual Super-Bowl-Champion Colts won 15-6, ending Baltimore's season.

But the court ruled in favor of Bouchat, stating that team owner Modell had access to Bouchat's work: Bouchat had faxed a copy of his design to then-chairman of the Maryland Stadium Authority John Moag, who shared the same office building as Modell.[4] Ultimately, however, a jury later awarded Bouchat zero damages during the damages phase of the case.[5]


As a result of the lawsuit, a new logo was designed, featuring a purple and black raven's head in profile, with the letter "B" superimposed in metallic gold and white. The secondary logo of the Baltimore Ravens is a shield with alternating Calvert Banners in kind with the flag of Maryland (which incorporates the flag of Baltimore) interlocked with a stylized "B" and "R". Flag of Maryland The flag of Maryland consists of the heraldic banners of the family of George Calvert, 1st Baron Baltimore. ... The flag of the City of Baltimore features the Battle Monument, a local monument to veterans of the War of 1812 which is also the central motif on the city seal. ...


Uniforms

Despite the logo controversy, the Ravens' uniform design has essentially remained the same since the team was established in 1996. In 1996, the team exclusively wore black pants with a large white stripe on it. The Ravens were the first team to wear dark pants with a dark jersey, which has now become common with many NFL teams, although the Ravens' pants were darker than the jerseys; the practice of pairing jerseys and pants of the same color did not come into vogue until 2001, when the New Orleans Saints wore an all-black combination in three games. They wore white socks with black and purple stripes.

In 1997, the team introduced white pants with black and purple stripes to be worn with the purple jersey. They also changed the black pants by adding a purple stripe to the white. The uniform now consists of black helmets, white pants, metallic gold trim, and either purple or white jerseys. Purple "talons" rise up from the facemask up the center of the helmet.


In November 2004, the team introduced an alternate uniform design featuring black jerseys and solid black pants and black socks. It was a home game victory versus the rival Cleveland Browns, titled "Black Sunday." It has been worn for select prime-time national game broadcasts and other games of significance. The black pants are different than those worn by the '96 Ravens. There is no white stripe, instead the pants are solid black with the Ravens logo on each hip.
