    OVER/UNDER 4,000 passing yards for Flacco



    Over or under 4,000 yards passing for Flacco this season.


    Im going with over. Flacco I think has a feel for his WR's and TE's now. Plus the new addition of players with speed on offense will help out with spreading the field more.

    Flacco should have been a 4,000 yard passer last season but he was inconsistent. I give some blame to Cam and our WR's too but overall all fingers point to Flacco because he is the QB. He threw for less than 200 yards in 7 games last season and he still rack up 3,610 yards passing for the season. I expect more consistency this year so he will be well over 4,000 yards passing.

    Under.


    Cam Cameron.


    No QB has ever thrown for much more than 3600 yards while operating out of Cam's offense.

    I'd say 3600-3800 is more likely.

    Under.

    It's the same offense from last year, minus a few players. Can't see that high a number from a team that's more of a run-first style of offense.

    Under for sure for the reasons stated above.

    But I couldn't care less if Flacco is 200 yards under the mark that all "elite" QB's have to get to. I will take wins and a superbowl over a Matt Ryan or Tony Romo any day.

    Minus who, Lee Evans?

    I like the over because it is going to be mostly the same group as last year. Smith should be better. Boldin had the knee issue last year and I expect if healthy is back to a 1,000 yard kind of guy. So 2k from the top WRs, another 5-700 from Rice. This year I think between the 2 TEs there is another 1,000 or so and to crak 4k, the Ravens just need to get something from the #3 WR spot, where the options should look a lot better than last year.

    4k passing yards is no major accomplishment. The Ravens are likely going to be a run heavy team, but just a slight improvement in Flacco's comp% and he should hit 4k easy in the same run/ pass ratio.

    agreed. I think its possible, but unlikely in this offense. Its just not designed to be a super offense that moves chains, more so just the big play for chunks of yards/TDs. Unless something drastically changes with Cams playcalling or the offense as a whole, what we see is what were going to get roughly. Flacco will be better this year, and all the stat hounds will still be pointing to his under 4k as the main reason hes the problem around here, but like you said. Brees and Rivers who hes often compared to (unjustly in most cases) didnt throw for 4k+ in this system with Cam either.

    Only the top 10 Qbs did so thats less than 1/3 of the league alone. Of those 10 only 2 had RBs with over 1k. There isnt enough plays in a season to be both, even with a higher completion percentage, unless our defense was absolutely awful. Its not how we play here nor should it be. I do admit we need to be more efficient and we will rise some but 4K is still a lot for this team.

    Optimistic maybe, but wishful, I do not agree. I can not see 5k, or even 4.5, but all it would take to get to 4k is 60% or better completions.

    Yet after throwing at 60% or higher three of his four seasons in the league, Joe hasn't cracked 3,700.

    In Cameron's offense, I am taking the under. We won't ever see a 4k, 30+ td season from Flacco in Cam's offense.

    Boldin has been here for 2 seasons now and hasn't cracked 900 yards or 75+ receptions in either year. The problem is Boldin isn't a great fit in the Coryell offense and granted, Torrey will take a lot of that pressure off of him, but Cam is still the one calling the shots and history has shown that Cam runs his offense through the RB and not the receivers.

    I'd say Torrey is the only receiver with a legitimate shot to break 1000 yards and that's only because of the nature in which they use him.

    Torrey - I'll say somewhere between 55-65 receptions for 900-1000 yards.
    Boldin - Maybe 60-70 receptions for 800-900 yards.
    Dickson - 40-50 for 500-550 yards.
    Pitta - 35-45 for 300-400 yards.
    Rice - 60-70 for 500-600 yards.
    J. Jones - 25-35 for 300-350 yards.

    So, at best you're probably looking at around 3500-3800 yards. Flacco is pretty consistent and has produced the most yards from a QB under Cam.

    I think I lean towards over (and obviously barely over, if over).

    The easiest way to prevent your QB from getting to 4000 yards as an OC is to simply limit his attempts. This has been the case for Cameron in the past, but not last year. Last year Joe had 542 attempts. What kept our total passing yardage (relatively) down was poor execution, not attempts. We increase our YPA to a decent but still modest 7.38 YPA (ranked 15th last year) from our terrible 6.66 (ranked 24th) of last year and that does the trick.

    So as Jeremiah said, I think we can get to 4k passing yards with similarly-called games but better passing execution, which should come with another year under the belts of Smith, Pitta, Dickson, and even Joe.

    Plus, I think our schedule will be more challenging and there will be less sitting-on-safe-lead situations and more games where we are throwing right to the end of the contest.

    Under
    Everybody's talkin' at me; I don't hear a word they're saying; Only the echoes of my mind

    I'm going where the sun keeps shining; Thru' the pouring rain; Going where the weather suits my clothes

    Banking off of the North East winds; Sailing on a summer breeze; And skipping over the ocean like a stone
