‘Bullies of Baltimore’ Preview
Directed by NFL Films’ Ken Rodgers and Jason Weber, “Bullies of Baltimore” is a “lively and colorful” documentary about the team’s “magical [2000-2001] season framed by a reunion of its key figures filmed in front of a live audience in Baltimore in May 2022,” according to the ESPN press release.
They were arguably the most dominating defensive team in NFL history – and perhaps the most entertaining club that pro football has ever seen. A behemoth on the field that turned into, literally, one of the classic shows of the reality television era. Now, a little more than two decades after one extraordinary season etched their legacy for all time, the documentary tells the story of a Super Bowl champion for the ages.
“We’ll never see another team like the 2000 Ravens,” said co-director and NFL Films VP Rodgers in a statement. “If they played in today’s NFL, given the social media landscape, their braggadocious personalities and physical style of play would constantly spawn memes, talk-show controversies and Twitter wars. No team dominated the sports world, on and off the field, quite like this one.”
Added co-director and NFL Films Senior Producer Weber: “In making this film, we decided the best way to highlight these incredible personalities was to bring them together for a reunion. Being on stage together, just a month before Tony Siragusa passed away, gave them an opportunity to celebrate their glory days in the perfect setting. There was a reason these Ravens were the first team selected for Hard Knocks – they’re a team made for the screen and the stage.”
The film features commentary and interviews with Shannon Sharpe, Brian Billick, Trent Dilfer, Ray Lewis, Rod Woodson, Jamal Lewis, Marvin Lewis, Kevin Byrne, Jack Del Rio, and the late Tony Siragusa, who died on June 22, 2022, just a month after the reunion was filmed in Baltimore.
At the time, former Ravens coach Billick said in a statement, “There was no one like Goose — a warrior on the field and a team unifier with a giving, generous heart who helped teammates and the community more than most people know. We would not have won the Super Bowl without him. This is such stunning, sad news, and our hearts go out to Kathy and the Siragusa family.”
“30 for 30: Bullies of Baltimore” premieres on Sunday, February 5 at 8:30 p.m. Eastern time on ESPN and will be available immediately afterward on ESPN Plus.
