Dickson enjoys big day

But tight end would trade personal success for team victory

November 14, 2011|By Edward Lee

One of the few bright spots in the Ravens’ stunning 22-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks Sunday was the play of tight end Ed Dickson.

Dickson set a team-record for catches in a single game by a tight end with 10, led the offense with 79 receiving yards, and scored both of the offense’s touchdowns with 1-yard and 11-yard receptions in the second and fourth quarters, respectively.

After the game, however, Dickson wasn’t satisfied with his personal success.

“I would trade that for a victory any day,” he said. “I’ll trade all my stats right now for a ‘W’ on the scoreboard. I just like to keep working. I knew a breakout game would come because of the way I work in practice and the way our team works in practice. I’m not at all worried about this team because we’re going to get it straight. We’re going to go back to work and we’re going to work hard until we get it straight.”

On the first scoring drive, Dickson caught six passes for 59 yards and three of those receptions gave the offense first downs.

Dickson said he and quarterback Joe Flacco are getting on the same page.

“That chemistry is very important in this league,” Dickson said. “I don’t have the chemistry that he had with [former Ravens tight end Todd] Heap, but I’m building on it each week, and I’m instilling confidence in him and in myself. We’re just going to keep working and each game that we come out, whether we catch zero passes or we catch seven, we just want to get better each week.”
