    Re: GAME THREAD - Ravens/Falcons (preseason)



    NFL qb history for the most part has suggested that letting qb's sit and wait usually produces a better "return on the investment", but from what I am reading it seems like Flacco has been continually improving.

    I had to admit it but Ben R (I don't want to mention his full name because of the team he is on) is a good example as an exception to the rule as he came in during his first season due to qb injuries, quite possibly like Mr. Flacco next week. Of course, Mr. R had a much stronger supporting cast than Mr. Flacco could next week.

    Pretty sure Flacco will be starting Sept 7th...by default.

    Sucks for Troy personally, but this sickness he has been dealing with likely has cost him any shot of ever starting here without an injury.

    Once Flacco is starting, he is not coming out.

    I think Flacco starts next week, but unless he lights it up, Harbs wants him on the bench. Basically, we want him to learn and not take a beating until he's ready. Troy will probably see action in the game and start week 2.

    The Harper play looked good too, but I think the Ravens got a gift there. Ball went through Harper's hands, he SHOULD have caught that.

    If Marcus Smith recuperates in time, we might not see Harper making this team as a 6th WR. Willis on the other hand might have a shot.

    Until he gets hurt. Which is likely to happen.

    oh man, Harper I think you just wrote your ticket to the Practice Squad...jeesh.

    26 yard punt return, should've been maybe 8, but slew of missed tackles.

    Re: GAME THREAD - Ravens/Falcons (preseason)

    I understand the thought in waiting to start a rookie until he is comfortable with the game so that he doesn't get discouraged and beaten up mentally and physically...HOWEVER..should injuries actually bring Flacco into the starting role earlier than expected and he shows the type of growth within the first two weeks of the regular season that he has shown in the past week, don't you think it would actually do worse for his confidence to then remove him as the starter and tell him that he goes back to the bench because Troy, who has not shown the success in the pre-season that Flacco has, is back from tonscilitis. I think the worst thing you could do after giving a guy the starting job is to take it away from him and give it to someone less talented.

    it just occurred to me...How far has Joey Harrington fallen when he's BEHIND DJ Shockley on the depth chart?

    Jameel McClain nice sack...shame he probably won't make the team with the slew of LBs we have.

    Just a ton of dropped passes for Harper...I watched two series and saw at least 2-3 dropped passes by Harper alone. One through his hands, but there was a penalty, another was just coughed up when he got tackled. He needed to show he could make some catches, hasn't made one yet.

    And now, throw to Harper was picked, though that wasn't his fault.

    Did it look like a bad drop or something that was caused by the tackle?

    Oh yeah if Marcus Smith gets put on IR who is gonna be the 5th receiver and maybe 6th

    I didn't see too much of the game, but from what I did see in the second half, Bramlet didn't actually look that bad. Considering he was just signed one or two games ago, he was much better than I thought he would be.

    Bramlet signed one or two games ago??? Try he just was signed and arrived today!

    My bad, I meant to type days, not games. I know he just got here, that's why I was impressed from what I saw.
