Disappointing Ravens aren't considered a top team in early NFL power rankings

Remember last offseason? When the birds were chirping, and Joe Flacco was healthy, and the Ravens were a sexy Super Bowl pick? It was a pleasant, simpler time. Because to be a Ravens fan in February 2016 — a Ravens fan who consumes every last morsel of coverage of the coming 2016 season — you have...

Would Joe Flacco have Dove for the Fumble?

Cam Newton chose not to dive on the football in the Super Bowl, but rather took a half step back from it, on Sunday. IT seemed to cost his team the game. What if it were Joe Flacco? Would he had responded differently? The backstep that stunned the NFL world is such a bad look, for many reasons. Panthers QB Cam Newton is the newly crowned NFL MVP, and that hesitation/retreat will define his season. Cue the rampant speculation as to why he did it. The question becomes, what about my Quarterback? Would Joe Flacco (who else was standing and cheering when he got announced with the other Super...

Baltimore Ravens have 30-1 odds for Super Bowl 51

We have officially turned the page to the 2016 season, so where better to start than with the early Super Bowl 51 odds. The Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots, and Pittsburgh Steelers lead the pack with 8-1 odds, and the Ravens are middle of the pack at 30-1, tied for 15th with the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills. These modest expectations make sense at this point, as the Ravens front office has much work to do before they will be considered in the playoff mix. But the return of Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco, former DPOY Terrell Suggs, and veteran wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. should...

Baltimore Ravens can rebound in 2016, few powerful AFC teams

Ravens are not their record While the Ravens are sitting at the sixth overall pick in the NFL Draft, they clearly are better than their selection. With a 5-11 team you'd think the ground to cover from 6th overall to sixth in the AFC isn't possible, but the top heavy teams aren't unstoppable. Ravens have a fair amount of obstacles, but they also have advantages. With 20 players on the injured reserved list last season (mostly starters), the Ravens are easily able to come back healthy. Joe Flacco, two and a half months in, walked across the field during Super Bowl 50's commemorative SBMVP...

11 weeks after tearing ACL and MCL, Joe Flacco doesn't have much of a limp

Baltimore Ravens 2016 NFL Offseason - Free Agent Breakdown: OL Kelechi Osemele

K.O. will become the highest paid of all the Ravens free agents this offseason. The decision to either resign Osemele or allow him to sign with another team will shape the Ravens offseason almost as much as Joe Flacco's contract negotiations. Can the Ravens afford to resign Osemele? Can they afford to let him leave the organization? The Ravens drafted Kelechi Osemele in the second round, #60 overall, in the 2012 NFL draft.  Osemele began his rookie season at Right Tackle, starting 14 games in the regular season. He showed tenacity in his run blocking while also showing vulnerability to...

National poll after Iowa caucuses to ask if Joe Flacco is elite

A real-life, respected policial polling outlet is using this election season and Monday's Iowa caucuses to ask the tough questions, and one that up until now seemed all but settled: Is Joe Flacco elite? Public Policy Polling, which was lauded for correctly calling the 2012 election, tweeted Monday...

Free Agency: Josh Gordon to the Baltimore Ravens?

Would the Ravens take a shot on Josh Gordon? Joe Flacco fires deep, right side, HE'S GOT A MAN OPEN! GORDON TOUCHDOWN! BALTIMORE IS ON THE BOARD! Now wouldn't that be something to hear. Small rumors have been bouncing around with Josh Gordon and the Cleveland Browns deciding whether or not to clean house once again to fix the re-occuring issues with the franchise. After Hue Jackson has been hired, re-placing Mike Pettine at Head Coach, word is he hasn't talked with hot shot Johnny Manziel after his foolish and constant stupidity off the field. Another reason for the intolerance is Manziel's...

Ravens news and notes on Braxton Miller, contract extensions and more

Ohio State quarterback turned wide receiver Braxton Miller was one of the big winners at the Senior Bowl last week. He reportedly played his way into potentially being a second-round NFL draft pick. Who knows at this point how the Ravens evaluate Miller, but what should be clear is that their offense...

Flacco beats Brady in SB MVP Rankings

Flacco atop the best in ESPN recent Super Bowl MVP rankings ESPN Recently ranked all 49 Super Bowl Most Valuable Players, and among those greatest players & performances is the Ravens franchise quarterback Joe Flacco. The rankings are quite a fair assessment, not overpowering the QB position over others, but also not underselling the greatest performances. At number one, Joe Montana himself for Super Bowl XXIV. An obvious performance to assess, looking at the 55-10 stomping over the Denver Broncos. Skipping down some names you may expect Flacco to be top 15 or 20, but instead, Flacco is #8....

Braxton Miller Could be First Round Pick after Dominant Week at Senior Bowl

Aaron Donald, Joe Flacco, and Eric Fisher have all cemented high first round values during Senior Bowl week in recent years, and now Braxton Miller could be doing the exact same thing. Despite Cecil Shorts showing some flashes of effectiveness throughout his first season as Houston’s slot receiver/wildcat quarterback, Bill O’Brien may be looking to upgrade his receiving corps to make things as easy as possible for his quarterback of the future. As a bonus, having a young, explosive slot weapon that can also throw the ball on gadget plays just like Shorts is something that may be too...

The Baltimore Ravens are well represented at Senior Bowl Weigh-ins

In case there was any doubt whether the Ravens are taking this draft seriously... The Baltimore Ravens are gearing up for a very important draft this season, looking to get back into the playoffs in 2016 after missing for only the second time in quarterback Joe Flacco's eight year career. They return several important veterans at key positions, but also have a need to get younger at several positions they will be looking at in the earlier rounds like wide receiver and pass rusher. With that in mind, the Ravens have begun the process of evaluating the prospects, sending coaches to the Senior...

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco jealous of Steelers wealth at receiver

Can you blame him? With Steve Smith Sr. down, the Ravens were left stranded at the wide receiver position. Defenses knew this and stacked the box, punishing the run game, and forcing Flacco to throw at receivers Ravens fans didn't know a week prior. And Flacco spoke about it with FOXSports Jason Garcia, "I don't know if it's something that it needs, but yes, you see what speed does. It does a lot for football teams. You see what the Steelers are doing with speed that they've added over the last couple years. It definitely makes a difference out there. I'm not saying that it's something...
