TYROD TAYLOR NEWS

Will the Ravens pursue former Texans quarterback T.J. Yates?

Now that the Houston Texans have cut former starting quarterback T.J. Yates, there's a lot of talk about whether he'll be reunited with Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak in Baltimore. It makes a lot of sense. Yates has made five regular-season starts and two in the playoffs, and he's knowledgeable about Kubiak's system from their shared background with the...

Weekly Rewind: Your one-stop-shop for the Ravens draft

Hmm… what has happened in the last week in the NFL. Oh. That’s right. Over 300 players found new homes (until their day of reckoning after Week 4 of Preseason, that is) when you count draft picks and undrafted free agents.  Since the biggest news in the sport has been the draft for the past few weeks, the culmination didn’t disappoint.  We tried our best to stick with the...

Tyrod Taylor understand he has to fight for his job

Before Brandon Weeden's signing with the Dallas Cowboys to back up Tony Romo earlier this month, a league source said the Ravens were in talks to try to acquire the former Cleveland Browns starting quarterback. The Ravens' interest in landing a backup quarterback through free agency or the NFL draft is something coach John Harbaugh emphasized during the recent NFL owners...

Are Ravens seeking new backup QB?

Before he signed with the Dallas Cowboys, the Ravens spoke with former Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden, The Baltimore Sun reported earlier this week. The Browns took Weeden in the first round of the 2012 draft — it seems longer ago than that, doesn’t it? — a few regimes and coaches ago and made him their starter before he turned into a bust. Whether he actually...

Ravens Could Be Looking To Upgrade The Backup QB Position

  Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com mentioned a few days ago that with the Ravens reportedly showing interest in QB Brandon Weeden — before he signed with the Cowboys — appears to be a sign that they are looking for a better backup quarterback. Tyrod Taylor has backed up Joe Flacco for the past three seasons, but Hensely doesn’t see him a viable stopgap for Baltimore, should something...

Top 10 free agent quarterbacks in the NFL

We have discussed here at cover32 Baltimore if the Ravens are in need of some help at the quarterback position through the draft. My answer was staunchly no. No need to spend a draft pick on that position in 2014. The next question is should the Ravens get some help via free agency. Again my answer is still no. Baltimore doesn’t have a ton of cap space and using any portion of...

Ravens are completely set at the quarterback position in 2014

The quarterback position is the most important in all of sports. Argue what you will for other positions either in the game of football or any other sport but you would be wrong. I understand it is also the most popular but don’t let that fool you. It is the most important. The 2014 Baltimore Ravens do not need a starting quarterback. Joe Flacco is the guy, he was the guy, and...

Turnovers by Pats' defense fuel rout of Ravens

The New England defense has found its knack for creating turnovers. It had four in Sunday's 41-7 rout of the Baltimore Ravens after going two games without any. The Patriots had a streak of 36 games with at least one turnover earlier this season, but that ended in their 10th game, a 24-20 loss at Carolina. Coach Bill Belichick and his players say the team emphasized getting...

Patriots Embarrass Ravens in Baltimore

Last year, the Patriots lost to the Ravens twice. Once on a Monday night in Baltimore, and again in the AFC Championship game at Gillette that ended the Patriots season. Every time the Patriots play the Ravens they seem to struggle. Not on Sunday. For the first time all season, the Patriots played good football for a full 60 minutes, and blew out Baltimore 41-7. Before the game...

Steelers Versus Ravens: Seven Things To Watch For In Week 13

The Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the Baltimore Ravens Thursday night at M&T Bank Stadium and below are seven things to watch for in the game. Taylor Made? - Ike Taylor is coming off of his worst two games of the season. In the last two weeks he has given up 14 catches for 328 yard and three touchdowns when targeted in coverage. Thursday night against the Ravens, Taylor will...

Extra wrinkle in the Steelers-Ravens game on Thanksgiving night--- Joe Flacco does not like the ...

I get why Jim Caldwelll and John Harbaugh want to insert Tyrod Taylor as a wildcat option in the Ravens offense--- mainly because almost nothing is happening in the Ravens' running game between the tackles. Joe Flacco may see it as an "insult" to his overall command of the offense. But the reality is the Ravens' offensive line is broken and undermanned. It has...

Joe Flacco: Wildcat makes Ravens 'look like a high school offense'

Out of desperation the Ravens turned to the wildcat on Sunday, throwing Tyrod Taylor under center for a few snaps. It wasn't very effective and it doesn't make much sense, frankly. Joe Flacco, for one, hates it. The Ravens actual quarterback said he has a disdain for the wildcat because it makes the Ravens "look like a high school offense." "I don't like...

Steelers-Ravens Preview

The Pittsburgh Steelers are playing their best football of the season, but are still on the outside of the muddled AFC playoff picture. With a Thanksgiving night visit to the archrival Baltimore Ravens, they face a team that's essentially in the exact same position. Both AFC North teams are among the half-dozen teams in the conference currently tied for the final wild-card berth...

Ravens' Flacco lashes out against wildcat offense

Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco hates his team's use of the wildcat formation, and Tuesday he let everyone know just how much. He wasn't happy with coach John Harbaugh's decision to employ backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor in the wildcat Sunday in an effort to enhance the Ravens' running attack against the New York Jets. Taylor took five snaps -- running four times...

Joe Flacco Not Enthused About Lining Up at WR

I noticed this when I watched their game yesterday. Flacco was not happy when he had to split out wide and Tyrod Taylor took snaps from Pistol and Wildcat. Flacco didn’t even attempt to go through with his fakes, he just stood there and watched. He was honest with his feelings about it. “I want to line up behind center,” Flacco said after the Ravens’ 19-3 win over theNew...

The Wind Cries "Hail" Mary...Ravens 19, Jets 3...

Winds gusting to 35 MPH, temperatures at 25-30 degrees in the shadows of M&T Bank Stadium... it was only fitting that Joe Flacco took advantage of his last possession going with the wind in the 3rd quarter to try to put the hammer down on the resilient New York Jets. Leading 12-3 at the time in a crazy game where not only the Jets were running a wildcat with Josh Cribbs but...

Ravens to rest starters vs. Rams in PS4....

It makes sense, even though the Ravens' 1st teams on both sides of the ball (and special teams!) clearly need more work. The vets will rest against St. Louis Thursday night. Meanwhile, more than 20 roster spots are about to be released, so for those guys there is plenty to play for. I was looking forward to seeing Tyrod Taylor get the start at QB against the Rams.

QBs Hanie, Crist among Ravens cuts

The Baltimore Ravens have cut Caleb Hanie and Dayne Crist, leaving two quarterbacks on the roster heading into next week's regular season opener in Denver. Starting quarterback Joe Flacco will be again backed by Tyrod Taylor. Hanie saw limited action during the preseason and Crist was signed last week after Taylor was being tested for a concussion. Other cuts Friday included...

Baltimore's Tyrod Taylor Shows Off Some Fancy Footwork Against Carolina

There was not a whole lot that went right for the Baltimore Ravens against the Carolina Panthers Thursday night.
