If that Texan O-line can still hold up, the league better watch out. I have much respect for what their trying to do in Houston.
**** Joe Flaccid.....lol I'm hoping Woodley and Harrison put a major hurt on him this season.....
Flacco's problem is...... he's an idiot. Seriously, he just isn't that smart. He talks slow and lacks any semblance of charisma. Duffuss comes to mind when I see him.
As much as we hate the guy he did bust our tails twice last season.
Flacco has had 2 major issues in his career so far the way I see it. They have lacked playmakers at the wideout position. The QB is ultimately only as good as his wideouts allow him to be. Recently, however, that changed. So now that is not an excuse anymore. Instead, the biggest knock on him, aside from being a Raven, is that he choke when the pressure gets too heavy. As much as it pains me to say it, Flacco played an above average season last year. Sure, he was not on the same level as some of the great, but certainly better than a lot of starting QBs in the league today. However, he fails to bring his team to the SB. And he has no one to blame but himself. The Ravens have had as talented a defense as they come in this league. They have had a decent o-line and a really good RB team.
If Flacco don't want to keep hearing this about himself he needs to take the Ravens to a Superbowl and probably win it. And he needs to do it fairly quickly as well.
For the most part, I agree with you on the part about the Ravens not building around a quarterback. But, they're going to have to begin to do so soon, with Ed Reed contemplating retirement year after year, and Ray Lewis aging (albeit gracefully) the window of opportunity for building around those two is about to slam shut if it hasn't already. The Ravens will need to begin to assess the situation at hand, realize that nothing gold can stay (Outsiders ftw) and look to build around their offensive playmakers.
