    The Browns were not fooled.

    And Flacco made some other GREAT throws Sunday. I'm not worried about his decision making just yet.


    And no, I will not turn on him if he has a bad game.
    I expect Flack to have his share of "rookie-QB-thrown-into-the-fire" games and for me, unless he experiences a complete meltdown of Velveeta/Chris Redman proportions, I will still remain optimistic about his chances of becoming the best Baltimore-bred QB since Bert Jones.

    I felt that given the TD he ran against the Bungholes after the play broke down, it was sort of a step backwards tossing up that second INT, especially to a vertically-challenged WR. Just a slight brainfart, but one that I don't expect to see again.

    Hopefully, the kid can toss for a couple of scores Monday...Having that option being acknowleged by opposing defenses would REALLY open up the floodgates for our offense!

    On the second interception I don't know how much time he really had to make a decision. The play took so long to develop and McGahee's throw to him was poor. When he was watching the play evolve he probably saw Mason was open, but by the time he caught the ball and got his feet under him it was to late. He was just trying to get the ball off as fast as he could at that point without reading the defense.

    I think when you use these gadget plays sometimes you have to take the bad with the good. He basically tossed the ball almost 70 yards in the air and it was underthrown. I don't know how much more time he could have taken.

    Once I saw that play I just kept thinking ... just 2-3 more feet (if that) and no one but Mason would have gotten that one...

    I pretty much gave him a free pass on that one, but it just irked me a little.

    I really think he has an excellent opportunity to mature into the Real McCoy behind what appears to be a resurgent offensive line...

    I hope he's ready. I anticipate he will take a lot more hits than he has in the previous two games; Pittsburgh will throw all kinds of different looks at him. Hopefully he's ready for it. The key will be the ground game and the play action that follows.

    I will keep my fingers crossed, but he is perfectly capable of going out there and stinking up the joint.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    Cam Cameron is a smart coach. They will do their best to establish the running game and take time off the clock. Flacco will not be passing all night. I look for 15-20 passes tops. They will do their best to work with Joe's abilities and what he does well. The key to the game is the offensive line and the defensive line. Both need to do well and everything else will take care of itself.

    Re: Is "Flack" Ready for PrimeTime?

    Everyone on here has to remember that Flacco faces all our exotic looks from our own awesome D. He will see what the Steelers will do because I'm sure they threw the book at him during practice this week....Will he screw up? Probably. But I think he'll be as prepared as he can be.......

    I agree, but remember: PRACTICE ain't GAMETIME...

    The Squeelers will be coming after our rook with, ahem..."Malice in their Hearts"... Let's hope he's up to the challenge!

    Thats why the Patriots practice indoors w/crowd noise playing at ~110db 's. It gives you the best simulation possible for conditions during a road game. The only thing you really can't replicate is rain, but as I brought up last year, a fire suppression system could be set up to replicate rain....

    I'll admit I'm nervous as Hell for Flack, but I have a feeling in my gut that tells me he won't play like a rookie tonight... As long as he avoids a Jim Druckenmiller-like performance, we should be successful tonight...

    IS IT MONDAY YET?

    Re: Is "Flack" Ready for PrimeTime?

    I think the answer to my original question would be: Almost, but not quite...which is amazing to say about a greenhorn rookie so soon in his development. That means that he's way ahead of the power curve...
