    Re: Does Baltimore have a true NFL quarterback

    It was a great first step. Almost perfect actually. Far more than any of us were expecting.

    But it was just the first step of many. And it was the Bengals D.

    But I think every fan left that stadium happy for Flacco. It was a great feeling when the "lets go flacco" chants built up.

    I was glad I was able to be there for that. I felt really proud for him. I hear he has been getting heckled about it in the lockeroom since though

    And how bout that O-Line play. How long has it been since we've seen that? I thought going into the game today that our guy was going to get killed. Instead, they kept the D-line at bay and picked up the blitz pretty well.
    the O-lines play was HUGE. I remember Bazooka in that exhibition game (Vikings?) and all anyone talked about was how awful he was. well, they had the 5th-string line in there. what a difference. compare his stats (and performance) with CPalmers; line play was all the difference.
    this isn't meant to disparage JFlacc; he stayed within himself, made good throws, threw it away when needed, didn't get petulant about drops. only reason Ravens ran so well is they were able to complete those passes.
    I'm REAL, REAL optimistic about Bazooka.

    Re: Does Baltimore have a true NFL quarterback

    Making a judgement about whether Joe Flacco is a true NFL quarterback after one regular season start makes about as much sense as Art Schlichter running for Mayor of Las Vegas...

    Worst case scenario, Flacco has a tough time adjusting to NFL defenses, loses his confidence and becomes Chris Redman.

    Almost as bad a scenario, Flacco becomes a serviceable journeyman who never quite reaches that "next level"...

    Better case scenario, Flacco continues to improve and with the weapons currently around him on offense, becomes the 2K version of Bert Jones.

    Best case scenario, we continue to build our O-line, pick up a few big-play receivers and Flacco evolves into a field general of Unitas-esque proportions...

    I didn't add the scenarios where an injury occurs because I don't want to bring that kind of negative thinking into the equation!

    Flacco had protection Boller never had. If that keeps up, he'll do well.
