Former Ravens linebacker Jamie Sharper will be one of 35 Ravens coming back to Baltimore Sunday to commemorate the ten-year anniversary of the franchise’s 34-7 victory over the New York Giants in Super Bowl XXXV, and catching up with Thyrl Nelson on “The Mobtown Sports Beat” Thursday, he had some thoughts on not only his team ten years ago, but he was able to diagnose John Harbaugh’s 2010 team as well.
He liked what he saw ten years ago from Brian Billick’s team, and he likes the look of the 2010 Ravens as well.
“I’ve definitely seen them,” Sharper said. “I saw them last year, watching them on TV. I caught them up in New York for the Jets game, and it’s a good defense. They keep the big defensive lineman in there with Ngata and those guys, trying to keep Ray free as much as possible.”
“I think the only thing they don’t have is those shut-down corners, but they make up for it in that scheme.”
Sharper was of course a pivotal part of the Ravens record-setting defense back in 2000-2001 which allowed a record-low 165 points, and formed one of the best linebacker trios in NFL history combining himself, former first-round pick and sack master Peter Boulware, and the eventual Hall of Famer Ray Lewis.
Sharper was a second-round pick by the Ravens
