The rich tradition of professional football in Baltimore returned in 1996 when the league awarded the team to the city.  The unique nickname was inspired by the poetry of former Baltimore resident Edgar Allan Poe.  A veteran team that had already played as a unit took the field and avoided the usual growing pains of a new team.  Success followed soon thereafter highlighted by victories in Super Bowl XXXV and XLVII.
