All-time Ravens, uh, make that Orioles team

The plan was to compile a position-by-position list of the greatest Ravens of all-time. Unfortunately, upon completion, we realized the list looked suspiciously like the current Ravens depth chart. Now, we were willing to leave the space blank, but the boss insists we fill it with something. One possibility was using the former incarnation of the Ravens franchise -- the Cleveland Browns -- but the last time we tried that, we got lots of angry mail (some of which even included proper grammar and correctly spelled words) that the Browns' history belongs in Cleveland. So in the interest of fun, and to see how many of you are actually paying attention, we present an all-time list of the Baltimore Orioles.
