Joe Flacco content with current Ravens receivers

After losing Torrey Smith in free agency, there has been some speculation that the Baltimore Ravens will exhaust their first-round pick (26th overall) on a wide receiver in the upcoming NFL draft. Despite what appears to be a depleted wide receiver group, quarterback Joe Flacco isn’t too worried about the wide receiver situation in Baltimore. Obviously, without Torrey now...

Joe Flacco doesn’t think the Ravens need to draft a WR

Quarterback Joe Flacco doesn’t think the Baltimore Ravens need to select a wide receiver in next week’s NFL draft. The Ravens return only one receiver who had over 24 catches last season after losing Torrey Smith in free agency.  Baltimore is left with Steve Smith, Marlon Brown, Kamar Aiken, Michael Campanaro and Jeremy Butler. “Obviously, without Torrey now, the...

The Franchise Quarterback: An unconventional approach to conventional wisdom

Today’s conventional wisdom holds that the key to success in the National Football League is finding the Holy Grail: The Franchise Quarterback. The pursuit of this goal—this Superhero and Knight in Shining Armor—is usually discussed as if everyone knows it is the most important factor in a team’s level of success, with no close second. But the term has been so misused, confused...

Why is Joe Flacco one of the most debated quarterbacks in the league?

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has been the Ravens’ most consistent quarterback in their franchise history — who would argue that? Apparently, many. If Flacco is one of those players who seeks exterior validation, then I’m sure he’d be at home thinking to himself, ‘what is it that I have to do to receive credit around here?’ Good thing for Flacco is he doesn’t...

Fan reaction to Ravens’ la-de-da attitude toward drafting a #1 WR is brutal…

Yes, Joe Flacco “develops” the best potential of young wide receivers around him—- but sooner or later, you’ve got to give him a Dez Bryant— or something close! Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh said that drafting a receiver “is a little bit of a crapshoot.” I get that part… But you willingly allow WR Torrey Smith to move on to greener pastures in San Francisco, you’re...

Not a player, but a sideliner who helped turn things around for the Baltimore Ravens

Think back to the 2013-14 season; the Baltimore Ravens’ offensive line was far from perfect. Per Pro Football Focus, the Ravens’ offensive line was ranked 23rd among other teams in the NFL. The addition of lineman Eugene Monroe from the Jacksonville Jaguars helped a bit. However, with Gino Gradkowski at center and Joe Flacco being sacked a whopping 48 times, the offensive line...

Why Joe Flacco’s days could be numbered in Baltimore

In my estimation, quarterback Joe Flacco played his cards right when he turned down the Baltimore Ravens’ first offer during the 2012 season. Choosing to play the year out led to his big pay day following a Super Bowl MVP. Flacco will have another opportunity to approach the round table with a hand of his own yet again next season. However, as ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio puts...

The Elephant in the Ravens front office— Flacco’s contract…

I simply don’t worry about the escalation of Joe Flacco’s contract as quarterback of the Ravens. But a lot of fans and observers of the Ravens make it a big deal. Now Mike Florio is stirring it up as he does so well at Pro Football Talk. Typical of Florio, he tries to instigate a crisis on a slow news day when he writes: “The Ravens have a potential mess in 2016 with Flacco...

Matt Schaub: Ravens have best QB room in all of football

Before the Baltimore Ravens signed 11-year veteran quarterback Matt Schaub, the quarterback depth behind Joe Flacco was extremely thin. Schaub was nearly the only viable option for the Ravens to latch on to. That said, head coach John Harbaugh seems to be happy with his ultra-cheap one-year, $3 million investment, saying, "The bottom line is Matt [Schaub] is a very good fit for...
