    Re: Joe Flacco's price has certainly gone up.



    I was just listening to London Fletcher talk about Joe and how he has tendencies that are keeping him from being top 5.

    Some of these could change with Cam now gone, but he said based on formations they knew where Flacco was going to go and if you take away his first read he struggles.

    I would tend to agree with him and say Flacco has to improve that before they give him top 5 money. Right now I think he gets top 10.

    That's on Cam. So many people have said how predictable Cam was on offense and how bad his playcalling was.

    I agree for the most part. Joe has improved with Cam being gone.

    But one thing he brought has still be true - he only throws deep balls to the right side of the field...

    Re: Joe Flacco's price has certainly gone up.

    He was never going to sign on the cheap unless they did it way early. Too many teams still need a QB to think that, if a guy who just so happens to have the most wins in NFL history during his first 5 years, hits free agency in his 6th season, that a caravan of brinks trucks would not be lined up in his driveway.

    It does not matter where a QB ranks on a big list of every qb in the nfl. All that matters is where they rank on the list of available guys this offseason, and how many teams have lists with his name at the top.

    So the Ravens are going to tag him because he is the franchise player now, and if they get him signed long term it is going to be for top 5 money.

    The TD pass to Boldin in the Giants game (was about 20-30 yards IIRC) was down the left sideline.

    Pretty sure I saw plenty of deep passes to the center of the field. Season opener vs. Cincy comes to mind.

    Does this mean the vast majority have moved past the Joe is a game manager, like Tony's article a little while back?

    He has hit Boldin down the left side over the top in sevral big wins. The numbers may say most of the big throws are down the right, but if or when strong safties are able to get there or the free saftey comes all the way accross, the underneath routes and run game will open up like never before. The Ravens have been a team that you have always been willing to take your chances with on the outside in order to contain the run and TE threats. WRs taking the lid off that scheme puts our o in a very dangerous place with no good poision left to pick.

    Re: Joe Flacco's price has certainly gone up.

    I think we should give Joe about a 7 year deal. That way he will complete his 12th season by the end of the contract, and if he is still playing at a high level and can stay healthy, then we could probably sign him to another 7 year contract with options built in after the first few years for us to keep him or cut him or for him to retire. If he can live out that contract, he'll have played 19 seasons, which is approaching Favre-like proportions, but if any QB is set to be able to accomplish something like that, it's Flacco.

    He said tendencies not exclusively.

    How many deep balls were to the left in the Broncos game, or the Colts game?

    I've heard that that is what they've already offered him, but he didn't like the structure of the money.

    Now, if he continues playing well, that may just be the starting point.

    I do not know the stats, but I would think most deep throws in the NFL would be down the right sideline because that is the strong saftey side. It is #1 WR side and the natural first read for right handed QBs. Also it is going to be the longest run for the FS.

    Joe has hit every throw out there and gone deep to every target, so teams may try to play the tendancy, but can not afford to over commit.

    Yeah, but you said "But one thing he brought has still be true - he only throws deep balls to the right side of the field..."

    For the sake of brevity I didn't spell it out, my bad.

    So his tendencies and numbers are much better to his right than left. I would hope/like he approves in this if he is getting top 5 money.
