    Baltimore Ravens

    Well..... If Flacco is the saviour of Baltimore, his job just got a little bit tougher... Although I would much rather have Flacco out there regardless of the circumstances then that douche Kyle Boller.

    1st player ever drafted by the Baltimore Ravens -- AS THE RAVENS not going back to Cleveland days.

    Pro-Bowl 11 of 12 seasons.

    Odds are pretty great he will become the first ever player elected to the Ravens Hall of Fame.

    I'd say he done well.

Flacco has expressed confidence that a proposed five-year contract will be completed soon although his agent sounded like there wasn't a big rush. "Nothing cooking right now," said agent Joe Linta, who represents Flacco. "I will probably talk to the Ravens again next week."
    This one is pretty simple. Pay Flacco. Unless you want to go another season with Boller and Troy Smith. If Flacco sits out camp, there is a small chance that he will play this year, like JaMarcus Russell last year and Philip Rivers a few years ago. Give him some money. Get him in camp. Give him the ball. Shit on Boller.

    To update Flacco.... They got it done.

    The signing ensures that Flacco will have a fair chance to compete for the starting quarterback job in Baltimore when the team reports to training camp next week. The rookie from the University of Delaware will battle Troy Smith and Kyle Boller in a three-way race this summer.

    "The most important part of this contract is that it is done before July 21st," Linta said. "They're excited, Joe's excited, I'm excited. I don't know anybody that is not excited."
    Good for Flacco. I think he has the skill and tools to win the job outright. Not that he's competing against any big-time QBs. The only thing I can hope for Flacco is that the team doesn't abandon him if he does win the job and doesn't perform right away. Just as I argued Russell last year, I am a firm believer that a QB should actually sit and really learn the system, but if he can take the job from the start... go for it. Flacco, Ryan, Henne... All could be first year starters week 1.

    Minor news if you are in a league that uses IDPs. Sypniewski wasn't going to be drafted in any league as far as I can see anyway... But, with two TEs on injured reserve, Todd Heap better stay healthy.

    Quote Originally Posted by Pro Football Weekly

Rookie TE Scott Kuhn was also placed on injured reserve with a knee injury. In other news, the team also waived LB Mike Smith after agreeing to an injury settlement with the fourth-year player. Smith missed last season with a shoulder injury.

    The NFL is all about opportunity... or should I say, more about taking advantage of your opportunity. Seems like Clayton will make the most of his chance here.

    Hopefully this is not serious... Baltimore needs Heap. However, are we surprised? If Heap can't go...the next TE in line is Daniel Wilcox. Keep an eye.

    Because it generally takes two weeks to a month to recover from a knee scope, McGahee could possibly return for the Sept. 7 season-opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.
    We'll see how long he is out!

    This makes sense to me... If I was Baltimore, I would not want to have to go with Boller for another game, and Joe Flacco could use more time in the system.

    Here is one of those instances where I don't recommend giving a first your QB the ball right away. Baltimore's receivers aren't that great. Don't send him out there too soon. Let him learn on the sidelines. Give Smith the job. F* Boller.

    Fucktard..... do you ever read anything or is it just selective?????? If you read in the Falcons thread, you would have seen that I said, I normally don't like 1st year QBs getting the ball right away. There are few instances where it makes sense. The Falcons situation is one of them. Ryan is far more along than Flacco is right now. The Falcons have a decent receiving group whereas the Ravens are lacking. Ryan was brought in to erase the Vick image. Flacco should have been brought in to erase the Boller image, but Boller is still around. Another spot where I think a 1st year spot woulda made sense is Henne in Miami. But they went another route and brought Pennington in there. I would have put Henne in over McCown or Beck. With Pennington in there, although I really don't like him that much, I would stick with him over Henne at this point. Pay attention. I didn't like the Raiders throwing Russell in right away... Different situations for different spots. 90% of the time I don't like it. But occassionally it fits.

    KK REJOICE!!!

    Boller could be out for year

    Kyle Boller, QB BAL
    News: The Carroll County Times reports there's a growing fear within the organization that QB Kyle Boller might be out for the season with a fairly serious injury to his throwing shoulder. Boller underwent an MRI, and the initial results weren't favorable. Team officials are awaiting results of a second medical opinion regarding an injury that stems from a brutal hit the former starter absorbed against the Minnesota Vikings. Boller was unable to throw Tuesday and struggles to raise his arm over his head. While jogging onto the field in sweatpants and a baseball cap, Boller never moved his right arm and crossed his left arm across his body to scratch his right ear.

    A little more on Boller.

    If he is struggling to raise his arm over his head, why the need for a second opinion??? Anyway, I know this is wrong, but the injury to Boller may be a blessing in disguise. I don't wish ill-will on anyone, but Boller really isn't a good NFL QB.

    With Boller's injury questions, Smith's tonsilitis - could we see Flacco as starter next week in the regular season? Odds are looking good. Still not sure I would sent Flacco right into the fire, but they may not have a choice.

    Ozzie has got to be the most optimistic person in the world if a torn labrum is GOOD NEWS.

Smith hasn't practiced in a week due to swollen tonsils and other symptoms, including fever and nausea. However, team spokesman Kevin Byrne said that Smith is not going to need to have his tonsils removed. Smith has reportedly lost roughly 13 pounds.

    Makes sense with the QB issues Balitmore has.
