The 2019-20 NFL regular season is merely a few snooze button presses away. Everyone knows who the Ravens lost on the defensive side of the football. Regardless, defense is a given. Marvin Lewis, Dean Pees, Chuck Pagano, Mike Nolan, Rex Ryan and Greg Mattison among others have come and gone. Not to mention Mike Singletary, Jack Del Rio and other positional coaches who have taken promotions with other teams.
I won’t list the names of former defensive standouts, as that would consume the better part of my Sunday evening. The point is that defense is ingrained in the DNA of the Ravens as a franchise.
