    Re: Flacco Contract Status



    It could happen, but given Ozzie's track record, it would be mildly surprising. He seems to wait until the last minute on these types of things.

    I think this is it. His agent keeps banging the drum that he's a top 5 QB. Tha tnotion is probably hard to sell now, But it's easier when he is tagged, and IS getting paid as one of the top 5 QB's. How can a team with a straight face tell an agent that their YOUNG, Franchise QB is worth top 5 money for one year but NOT 6 or 7? Assumign he doesn't hurt his throwing shoulder/elbow or fall off a cliff development wise, it's a good strategy.

    In watching the Jacksonville game it looked like Cam Cameron finally realized that the offensive line is our weakeness on offense. I saw quick slants to Boldin along with other quick action plays. We didn't have all our receivers running 9's and hoping that Flacco would have time. If this continues into the season, then i think flacco could have a great year. We've been teased by Cameron in the preseason before though. It was great to hear that both Pitta and Dickson are back at practice, but I've been impressed with Bajema so far. looks like great depth at tight end.

    Ngata? Rice? Webb?

    They know that Flacco is going to be a Raven and win as a Raven. There is no way they start all over at QB...not after all of those years of scrubs.

    It'll get done.

    IIRC they were all signed after being tagged, with the exception of Webb. Ozzie typically doesn't sign players to new deals while the under contract. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't see a deal with Flacco getting done before next off season.

    Ngata was tagged and then signed before the season started...same with Rice.

    Ozzie has definitely been more pro-active in re-signing their core players.

    I see the opposite. Cam has been playing like the offensive line has been a weakness for years. His solution was to try and over protect Flacco which is why we saw so few 3 receiver sets and too many gadget plays. That really hasn't worked all that well. He's finally figured out is the best course of action is to let Flacco loose. Give him options and let him throw the ball. That's why I see Flacco's numbers going way up this season. He's now going to get a chance to do what most other offenses started to do years ago. That's only going to drive his price higher.

    That's what the Giants did last year. It's what the Steelers do every year.

    It's what most teams do. I can't think of a team in the NFL where their OL is SOOOO dominant that they can just allow their QB to sit back there and do whatever he wants. The Patriots had that for a while, but Matt Light retiring this off-season has definitely impacted their OL. Brady has taken a lot of hits this pre-season.

    Our offensive line is far from perfect, but it's a damn sight better than what the Steelers or the Giants have right now.

    Re: Flacco Contract Status

    perhaps the ravens are waiting for flacco's completion percentage to drop for a 3rd straight year or maybe they want to see if he can break his career high for turnovers in a season, which he set last year...

    He didn't throw a career high of interceptions last year, he had as many in his rookie year (mostly to do with a 1960's style offense, and the fact that most of his receivers where the first time he had to work with them). If your going to criticize a player, at least get the facts straight before spouting a load of crap out.

    I will enjoy not seeing your useless troll comments when Flacco has a career year this season.

    Sarge-
    You cite two stats for Flacco's individual performance, and they cannot be debated - he did drop in completion % (although I'd argue it was for the second straight year), and his turnovers went back to 23, same as his rookie year. (all stats I checked were on nfl.com)

    But I'm not sure what you are suggesting by that observation. IMHO, Flacco seems to be a "better" QB now than he was in 2008. He also has led the team (if one wants to credit the QB for the entire team's success) to a better post-season result than the previous two seasons. I think Flacco's statistical performance has to be assessed in context with the statistics of the other players on offense as well as the injuries, personnel, etc., with which/whom he racked up those
    declining numbers.

    I'm not saying I'd be happy if Flacco's stats continue to "deteriorate", but I'd also be much happier if his profile was less than stellar and the Ravens win a Super Bowl.

    Joe Flacco is in a sweet position now. The way he's looking now..................

    i said career high in turnovers there chief not interceptions...he had the same amount of int's and fumbles as his rookie year however last year he lost 4 more of those fumbles than his rookie season thus setting a career high with 18 giveaways....maybe you need to check your facts...

    i'm a ravens fan, i hope flacco has a great year....i just go off the facts...not wild fantasies that cam cameron and our wr corps are keeping joe flacco from being aaron rodgers, drew brees or tom brady like so many others on here..

    Numbers shmumbers. It was obvious to most Ravens fans that Flacco was improved last year, even if he didn't put up better stats.
