Joe Flacco Learns To Swear From Terrell Suggs

Joe Flacco was quiet. He didn’t know why carefully removing his slacks from his suitcase, unfolding them then refolding them before he put them in drawer was so soothing to him, but it was. Remove pants. Shake pants out. Fold pants. Remove pants. Shake pants out. Fold pants. Their creases were perfectly aligned. For a $120.6 million Joe wanted to make sure the team knew he would...

Suggs wants Flacco to drop more “F” bombs

Yes, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has the hardware and the cold-hard-straight-cash-homey. But is he ready to become a true franchise quarterback?

Have the Baltimore Ravens improved their offense enough?

The Baltimore Ravens rode Joe Flacco’s big arm and a strong defense led by Ray Lewis to a magical Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers. That was the 2012-2013 season.

Don’t Overlook The Average Joe

Joe Flacco. This might in fact be the unsexiest name in all of fantasy football, and his ADP of 92.5 (QB21) in 2QB fantasy leagues (hat tip to Salvatore Stefanile for giving the world 2QB ADP data) shows that he isn’t being drafted as anything more than a fringe QB2/backup. But should he be more than that?   Below are Joe Flacco’s season averages from 2009-2012, via Rotoviz’s...

OL Camp: Gauging their growth, Baltimore Ravens linemen can’t wait for pads

Last season, the Ravens’ offensive line was a popular subject in Baltimore, seemingly making headlines every week — and usually not for good reasons.

Recently, Vegas put the odds of Joe Flacco winning MVP at 100 to 1. This was equal to Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel and the Cincinnati Bengals’ Andy Dalton, both AFC North rivals.
