Flacco Still Ravens Weak Link
 
The Ravens problem remains QB - shocking news:jawdrop:

The Ravens have a game-changing defense, a top-10 rushing attack and a question mark hovering over their quarterback.

Joe Flacco has completed 49.3 percent of his passes through the first quarter of the season, which is last among quarterbacks with at least 100 attempts.

Ravens will never win a Lombardi with Flacco

i see a lot of good in Flacco, but I agree that he'll never be able to beat the good teams when it matters.

"You" (can you please post a picture of your Super Bowl ring?) also did it against Kerry Collins with a legendary defense (are you comparing the Ravens defense this season to the 2000 squad?) back in the day when the defense was allowed to breathe on pass receivers and allowed to touch QBs. Recall how the Ravens took out Gannon in the AFC championship? Hit a QB like that today and the entire defense will be suspended for the next game.

Game has changed since Dilfer and Brad Johnson were the QBs on Super Bowl winners - to beat Rodgers or Brees (assuming Baltimore gets that far) the Ravens will not be able to expect the defense to bail out poor QB play

Right.... because no Steeler fan ever says that.

Fail.

just face the fact that Flacco is no Trent Dilfer.

Come on, Flacco is better than Dilfer. But I do agree that if the Ravens want to make it to the Super Bowl, he has to improve. While it is possible to go all the way with a mediocre or average QB, it's still a rarity. You can look across the league and pick out the guys who will never wear a Super Bowl ring unless they land a backup QB job for a good team: Tavaris Jackson, Kyle Orton, Jason Campbell, etc. Not sure where Joe falls in yet... he seems to struggle with consistency throughout the season (one week looks stellar, the next week looks awful) and tends to collapse like a house of cards in the playoffs. But I can't talk too much crap on him after what happened in Week 1. Hopefully the "other" Joe Flacco shows up when we play them again this season.

Joe does struggle at times but this year he seems to be more focused on looking down field which has caused a couple stupid fumbles the added players around him has helped tremendously this season when he goes on the road to Pittsburgh the 6th will be what determines if he has improved to get us over the hump finally. Being able to run the ball no matter what has given him added security as well. But to honestly put Joe's name near Tavaris Jackson or even hint at it is stupid sorry.

Flacco has a strong arm and great pocket presence. He's always been susceptible to being rattled with the right defensive playcall or a proper gamble (Polamalu last year, anyone?!!?!). It's tough to improve your improv. skills. He's always going to be a dangerous player, but it's really tough to imagine him making enough plays and avoiding crucial mistakes to be able to rattle off 3 or 4 playoff wins in a row to get a ring. At some point you feel like it's going to breakdown. Even if one week it looks like he did achieve just that, the next week is an entire new set of circumstances in a brand new game.
