Joe Flacco thinks that Johnny Manziel’s middle finger is no big deal

On Monday night Cleveland Browns rookie sensation and hype machine Johnny Manziel made his NFL Monday Night Football debut against the Washington Redskins. It didn’t go nearly as well as he had planned. Manziel completed just seven of 16 passes, was sacked three times and averaged a pathetic 4.1 yards per pass. The Redskins bullied and taunted him all night, and by the third quarter...

Which receivers will soar in the Baltimore Ravens offense?

With so many new additions to the Ravens receiving core, it makes one wonder who will have the best season statistically. As of right now, the 53-man roster is not set, so it is hard to say who stays and goes, but the surefire locks will most definitely make an impact. The locks to make the roster are Torrey and Steve Smith, speedster Jacoby Jones, and the impressive undrafted...

Ravens show good first team, lack depth vs Cowboys

  Photo: Normally, the first team offense will only be on the field for the first quarter in preseason game two. That only works when you actually get the offense on the field. Joe Flacco and company didn’t get onto the field until there was only about three minutes left in the first. Now before you all start to panic, that was only because we managed to score...
