Ravens Gab Awards 2010 – Most Improved Player

Improvement can be graded out in so many ways but we can all agree it means that this player was productive on the field. Maybe they came back from injury or came out of nowhere and defied expectations.

As usual we all had our own ideas as to which Raven was “Most Improved in 2010”.

Gene Winner went with a player who replaced Dwan Edwards on the defensive line and enjoyed his first trip to the playoffs in his pro career.

CORY REDDING

Although Redding wasn’t a Raven last year, he improved as the season progressed for the team.  

Redding did seem to get stronger down the stretch for Baltimore. Maybe he finally got comfortable in the scheme but he put in a solid effort in his first season in purple.

Jonathan Scruggs stayed on the defensive side and went with a player that often goes unnoticed.

CHRIS CARR

All off-season everyone said the Ravens’ cornerbacks weren’t up to snuff. They said that it was the one major position of weakness on an otherwise stout team. Chris Carr took it personally and made sure that he was not going to be the weak link. Not this season, not ever. He played outstanding defense week in and week out, never complained, and if you didn’t hear his name called out during the broadcast, that meant he was doing his job. Chris Carr was clearly the most improved player on the team this season.

Most fans were unsure when about Carr after the first few games in 2009 when he first joined the team but he’s become a very dependable player. I can’t think of many who wouldn’t want him to re-sign.

As for me I had to go with the player that made the biggest jump in terms of production as he earned his first Pro Bowl appearance.

BILLY CUNDIFF

Anyone remember the competition between Cundiff and Shayne Graham? I do -in fact I gave the edge to Graham. Glad I was wrong.

Cundiff was tremendous on kickoffs and very trustworthy from Field Goal range. He may have finally put the Matt Stover talk to rest once and for all.
