    Re: Should Ravens draft a QB in 2008 draft?



    Boller is pathetic for a NFL QB. He had 1, maybe 2 good passes the WHOLE game. The TD to Mason was prolly the best pass I've ever seen him make as well as actually making a good pass on 4th-10. BUT THAT WAS IT!!! He missed Devard Darling down the sideline. He constantly throws off his back foot, even when he's not pressured. I forget who it was, but it was a comp to a receiver that was underthrown. If it was thrown properly, it would have been a TD!!! I'm sick of Boller and Billick's playcalling!!!! That's what this team needs!!!!!!!

    I just found this site last year, but I can understand your frustration. He should be our backup QB for a long time....he doesn't have "it" as a starting QB. We, in my opinion, had the best overall Ravens team ever last year (including SB year), and couldn't get it done for numerous reasons argued to death.

    My question to everyone on this board is: Do you honestly think we would have gone 13-3 with Boller under center? I certainly don't think so, nor will we ever go 13-3 with him under center!! If Billick had used his brain last week in Buffalo, he could have made Boller look like a stud by handing off to McGahee at the end of the game. We would have won that game and Boller would have had a road win!! But Billick, as usual, tried to out-think the opponent, instead of using the "KISS" principal: Keep It Simple Stupid!!! And as we all saw last week, Boller failed to deliver!

    Well, I think we have found a couple of new HC and QB coaching candidates here.

    Never said I should be HC or QB coach......just stating the obvious! You can't answer my question because you know I'm right. WE HAD THE BEST OVERALL RAVENS TEAM EVER LAST YEAR and couldn't get it done with a healthy McNair under center. What makes you think we could go 13-3 with Boller under center? Do you think they were the right calls on 2nd and 1 in Buffalo last week? Hell, even the coach in hindsight said they were the wrong calls!

    I actually wouldn't mind the dink-and-dunk offense we have now if we were scoring TD's in the RZ, instead of kicking FG's!! It serves 2 purposes: 1) controls the clock, which keeps our aging 'D' off the field and 2) keeps the opposing 'D' on the field much longer, which opens up the running game. Remember a healthy Jamal back in the day, when he might only get 2 or 3 yds a carry early, but as they kept running him later in the game, he would start busting off 5 or more yard carries? Thats what we should be doing now. Buffalo was a perfect example. McGahee didn't have any big runs early in the game, but slowly wore them down because their 'D' was on the field so long!!

    Haven't heard much about this guy:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/player...layerId=146278

    I know he hasn't played the upper echelon of college talent, but his numbers are good and he did hang 59 on Navy at Navy.

    There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for and why it is here it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarrely inexplicable…

    There is another theory which states that this - has - already - happened…

    I posted something on Flacco awhile back. I did see him rack up 30/41 for 434 yards and four touchdown passes in Annapolis. Forgettabout Navy's porous defense: Flacco was poised and his passes were like ropes, right on the money. Accurate & strong-armed. When blitzed, he moved well and smartly threw the ball away when receivers were covered. He really reminded me of Derek Anderson. He might make a good 5th round pick.

    At 6'6", with his big arm & mobility, I'd love to see him in purple next summer.

    The only thing about guys like Flacco are the conferences they play in. The D's are slow and the teams aren't very good. I'm not saying he doesn't look promising, but you've got to keep that in mind.....

    Flacco may go way before the 5th round...

    Actually, knowing the Ravens, they'll probably pick him in the second round, instead of a good CB, because he fits the "mold" of a pocket passer......I just don't like the level of his competition nor his lack of mobility.......

    Joe Flacco looks to me better than some of overhyped one season wonders like Dennis Dixon, I would love to see Flacco play for Ravens. Even the draft gurus like Mel Kiper (who has him rated as the fifth best senior QB) and Todd McShay are high on this guy.
    Steve McNair has made a huge difference in the Ravens choking this season. Make no mistake about it. He finds a way to choke in the clutch. He has singlehandedly killed the Ravens season as I knew he would. All we needed was a real QB an he's not it. Damn you Steve for becoming a Raven and proving me right! Thanks for nothing Ozzie for getting him!!

    Sorry to see that Flacco is not a well-kept secret! I saw him as a 5th rounder due to 1-AA, but it looks like others are noticing him. I am hoping that Boller plays on par with his overall performance level since Dec 2005, to grab the starter's job next season and then see the Ravens be able to invest in a stereotype NFL QB chosen in lower rounds as a bona fide true competitor for 2009. (Sorry, but I don't see enough out of the undersized Troy Smith to believe that he will ever start in the NFL).

    Anybody heard of Josh Betts?

    Currently 3rd on the depth chart for Colts, played after Ben at Mia of Ohio. Good college stats, good size at 6'2-215lbs...maybe a trade instead of drafting???

    Calm down Tex, despite some of the worst play calling in recent times, I think Brian Billick knows more about football than you and me. If Billick thinks that Boller has improved lets wait and watch Boller perform on the field for a few weeks. Don't forget some football players do take time to develop, if only you can remember that Romo was on bench for first three years of his career. I don't claim to be a football pundit, but the little I know about the game tells me that Kyle Boller do have all the measurables to succeed in NFL. I remember you went quite when your lover McNair was struggling in not too distant past, at least give the poor guy some games to show us what he can do.
