Joe Flacco Excited About Ravens ‘Explosive’ Offseason Additions

The Ravens made some quality additions to the roster, but I’m not sure how explosive any of them are. 2013 was a terrible year for Joe Flacco all in all.  Add on the fact that he won a Super Bowl and got a huge contract for the work he did in 2012, and you can see why Flacco was so down in the dumps. Part of the blame was the lack of weapons around Flacco to work with.  The Ravens...

Quarterbacks are overpaid and overrated

Super bowl 47 was an easy call for Seahawks fans. They had no reason to hate the Baltimore Ravens and every reason to root against the rival San Francisco 49ers.
