Projecting the Ravens' 53-man roster 4.0

Here's the final edition of projecting the Ravens' 53-man roster. Final cuts will be official on Saturday. The next 24 hours will involve a lot of guys sweating it out as to whether they made the 53-man roster or not. Here's our final projection, with no more players listed on the bubble. They're either in or out. ( * indicates the player, at this time, will not be counted toward the 53-man roster due to suspension or being on the PUP list) Quarterback (2): Joe Flacco, Tyrod Taylor; Out: Keith Wenning Analysis: With NFL teams carrying two or three quarterbacks, there aren't a whole lot of...

Convert on fourth downs? Child please, score on first

Quarterback Joe Flacco says the offense must convert on fourth downs when opportunities arise. Think Madden. Nobody kicks field goals. Sam Koch and Justin Tucker, no offense, you both are a waste of a spot on my roster. I usually trade them away, bolster my backfield. Nobody I've lost to, or trumped, has taken a chance to play defense when the game is on the line. (Unless we play for Chipotle. That's another story.) Ravens' writer Ryan Mink recently wrote a piece vocalizing Flacco's frustrations for falling short on two opportunities in the Redskins' game last Saturday. Mink noted that...

Ravens-Redskins final score: Joe Flacco goes for 180 passing yards in 23-17 victory

The Ravens move to 3-0 this preseason with a win over Washington. Joe Flacco took a lot of hits Saturday night against Washington. He was sacked two times, pressured quite a bit and was forced to make quicker decisions than he would have probably liked to. Despite that, Flacco completed 16 of 23 passes for 180 yards and a touchdown during Baltimore's 23-17 win over Washington. He put up those numbers in two quarters of play. That's quite impressive considering he didn't have the luxury of having all day to throw or a running game to lean on. The Ravens' running backs finished the first...

Projecting the Ravens' 53-man roster 2.0

Here's the latest Ravens' roster projection. Entering preseason Week 3, here's who we have making the 53-man roster. One adjustment has been made, and that's if a player is suspended for Week 1 or longer, or is currently on the PUP, then they will not be counted toward the 53-man squad. An asterisk (*) will be noted if a player won't, or isn't expected to be, on the 53-man roster at the preseason's conclusion. Quarterback (3): Joe Flacco, Tyrod Taylor, Keith Wenning Analysis: Wenning hasn't done much in the first two preseason games. But the Ravens did draft him in the sixth round,...

Third preseason game may be last opportunity for Flacco to test offense before regular season

Ravens coach John Harbaugh has mostly stuck to his script from previous preseasons, which means Saturday's game against the Washington Redskins will be quarterback Joe Flacco's final dress rehearsal for the Sept. 7 regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Ravens candidates for Comeback Player of the Year

The Ravens have four candidates to win the Comeback Player of the Year award. The nominees: Joe Flacco Flacco had a career-worst year in 2013, throwing 19 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. If Flacco bounces back in 2014 he could be in the running for the award. However, his stats have never been on a high level and he would likely need to have more than his modest statistical output or lead the Ravens to an 11-plus win season. Ray Rice Rice was one of the best running backs in the NFL before 2013, making three Pro Bowls and two All-Pro teams, as well as racking up 4 consecutive 1,000 yard...

Notes: 49ers using caution with Culliver; Brock’s return looming

Before the preseason opener against the Ravens last week, cornerback Chris Culliver hadn’t played a game since a Super Bowl loss to Baltimore 18 months earlier. That game also doubled as the worst performance of his career, as Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco picked on him for part of his 287 yards and three touchdowns.

Joe Flacco speaks with Dan Patrick about Ray Rice's assault case

Joe Flacco went on Dan Patrick's radio show and was asked about Ray Rice. You be the judge of how it went. Your browser does not support iframes. Joe Flacco didn't seem too comfortable talking about Ray Rice on Dan Patrick's radio show. When Patrick offered up a question as to how he and his wife, Dana Flacco, talked about Rice's assault case at home, the Ravens quarterback did either one of two things: 1) he told the truth, or 2) he sidestepped the question. "We didn't really ever talk about it in that manner," Flacco said. "In my house, we more just looked at it to see what we could do...

Ravens fullback Kyle Juszczyk shows skills in receiving game

Juszczyk caught three passes for 28 yards Thursday night. The Juice was loose. After a season where he rarely played on offense, fullback Kyle Juszczyk got some time with the first-team offense during Thursday night's 23-3 preseason win over the 49ers. Juszczyk was impressive, too, catching three passes for 28 yards, including a 17-yearder from quarterback Joe Flacco on the first drive of the game. If Thursday is an indication, the Ravens have big plans for Juszczyk in 2014. "Coach [John] Harbaugh has talked about stacking days, so we're just going to continue to stack days," Juszczyk...
