Don't be sorry for me. If Flacco is a bust the Ravens will be hurting for years to come. A good QB can only be found if you pick 1 or 2. The Colts got luck and only had to suffer 1 year but they also had a pretty good defense, the Ravens are old on Defense and without a QB they will be hard pressed to be a 500 team for years. Rebuild the defense first but if a good QB is available in Free Agency grab him.
I'm just glad it's not my problem. Your FO will definitely have its work cut out for it come season's end.
I say now is the time to rest Flacco and get his arm in shape. A rest will do the team good.
if flacco plays like he did today and our d keeps getting healthy we could win it all ........
never would have thought that a month ago .......
just one game but flacco looked as good as he has all year today .....
It would be nice to get to the second round healthy and flying on all cylinders. It's a gamble but I think it's one we have to take.
The first two steps they are going to have to take is sort out what they're going to do with Flacco and once and for all end the legacy contracts.However hard it may be they have to cut loose some of the longtime favorites because their play on the field no longer justifies their salaries.Lewis,Reed,Birk,McKinnie and Boldins time has come and gone.Since they aren't all going to be replaced via the draft it is essential that they create enough cap space so they can at least be competitive with other teams for young starting quality free agents.The dumpster diving approach simply will not suffice this time around.
Joe was good this last game but whether or not he was capable of having a good game has never been the issue with him.It's about him showing some consistency and stringing together a few quality games.I would start him against the Bengals and if he has a good first half pull him at halftime.If he stinks it up in the first half against the Bengals I would leave him in until he can leave on a high note because him along with the team need some momentum heading into the post season.
It seems to me if the Ravens really believe they have a chance to win it all, they rest the starters and Flacco as well. It makes little difference being 3 or 4 but with NE playing after the Ravens it goes to show how the NFL really tries to protect NE. By playing late they don't have to play any of their hurt players if the Ravens lose. The NE game if played before or at the same time as the Ravens would have dictated how much time the straters play. Joe needs a rest as does Suggs, Reed, the offensive line, Boldin and any other starter who is dinged up. Joe Flacco needs a big time game in these playoffs to get that big pat day but at what cost? Will he put the Ravens in Cap Hell and than the whole team suffers.
Draft strong as usual and pick up some value priced free agents afterwards. I think that model still works.
And I forgot to include the schtick... my apologies.
C.J. Hunter has spoken again!
Well gang hate to brag but I must have been in Harbaugh's head this past week. Play Flacco like it was a pre season game, play no banged up players and see if we can still win it. Cincy played their best and even brang their 1st team back in to insure the win. We almost pulled it out. Didn't matter though and now we are ready to win it all. Joe is hot and when he is hot there is no better QB in the league. I predict a go in the show and Flacco to be the MVP of the SB.
