The Road to the Ravens Began with the Baltimore Colts

Football fanatics will know that Baltimore's first pro-football team was the Baltimore Colts. The blue and white clad Colts played at Memorial Stadium from 1953 to 1983, coached by famous figures including two-time winner of the Coach of the Year Award, Don Shula (1963-1969) and 1975 Coach of the Year, Ted Marchibroda (1975-1979). Johnny Unitas, one of the most famous quarterbacks in the history of football, played for the Colts from 1956 to 1972.

The Baltimore Colts made two Super Bowl appearances. In 1968, the Colts lost Super Bowl III to the New York Jets, but in 1970, won Super Bowl V against the Dallas Cowboys.

On December 18, 1983, the Colts played their last game in Baltimore. The team had become so connected to the city that fans were upset when the Irsay family would not relinquish rights to the Colts’ name to Baltimore. In 1984, the Baltimore Colts moved to become the Indianapolis Colts.

The Birth of the Baltimore Ravens

In 1996, when Art Modell moved the Cleveland Browns to Baltimore, the city embraced NFL football once again and the Baltimore Ravens were born. Although the Ravens are a young football team, Baltimore has had a long love affair with the game. From local high school football to the University of Maryland Terrapins, Baltimore fans have historically supported and embraced the game.  

Sporting purple, black, gold and white, the Ravens’ name was chosen in honor of famous poet Edgar Allen Poe, as it was believed he wrote his famous poem, “The Raven,” while living in Baltimore in the 1830s.  

Their inaugural year, Ravens touted talented players such as Earnest Byner and Vinny Testaverde as well as Coach Ted Marchibroda from the Baltimore Colts days. After struggling through two seasons, the Baltimore Ravens hired a new head coach, Brian Billick from the Minnesota Vikings offensive coaching staff.

In 2001, the Baltimore Ravens defeated the New York Giants, 34-7, to win Super Bowl XXXV, and Ravens’ linebacker Ray Lewis was named the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player. Coaching duties were taken over by current coach John Harbaugh following the 2007-2008 season.
