Found September 14, 2012 on Football Nation:
 Last week, the Baltimore Ravens (1-0) came out and featured their new "sugar-huddle" offense being ran by Cam Cameron. The offense exploded for 430 yards, 308 of those by way of the pass.Joe Flacco is in a contract year and wants to have a huge season to earn that paycheck. Ray Rice can play in this new style of offense and is a great receiver out of the backfield, showing off those skills with a couple one-handed catches in Week 1.Torrey Smith hauled in one of his patented deep balls from Flacco a connection that will be there every week. Boldin is back in the slot and had an impressive game and will quietly have his best season since his days in Arizona. Dennis Pitta is a waiver wire addition this week, but we need to temper our expectations as the big game could easily shift to the other tight end Ed Dickson.Good starts: Ray Rice, Torrey SmithMiddle of the road: Joe Flacco, Dennis Pitta, Anquan BoldinBad starts: Ed Dickson, Jacoby Jones As good as the Ravens looked las...

I love Flacco’s talent and his weapons.  I don’t trust that Cameron will continue to let him run the...

5 reasons the Ravens could lose in Week 2

Yes, the Baltimore Ravens and Joe Flacco looked amazing last Monday Night against a division rival and yes the offense probably played the best game you’ve ever seen them play.

Prediction Saturday: Ravens don’t suffer a letdown this time

This game is a tough one to pick this early in the season. It’s not real clear how either team, the Ravens or Eagles, will be this season. Baltimore looked dominant Monday night and the Eagles won their game against the Browns, but turned the ball over five times. For this week, I’m rolling with the home team. Joe Flacco showed pinpoint accuracy in the Ravens’ 44-13 victory...

Ravens-Eagles Preview

A late game-winning drive salvaged an otherwise dreadful Week 1 for Michael Vick. Joe Flacco was brilliant for virtually all 60 minutes.
