Flacco could end up being a very good QB...but then again Ryan Leaf was a can't-miss NFL QB.

I love the fact that everyone notes how he has such a strong arm. You know who else on the QB roster has a very strong arm? Kyle Boller...the failure that he is.

Great job throwing with pinpoint accuracy in minicamp Flacco...now lets see you do it with a guy like James Harrison coming in to knock your head off.

I think that the Ravens have a good enough defense to win with a good offense.. not a great offense.. a good offense! A QB that makes some plays and doesnt turn the ball over will go a long way with this team right now.

Kordell had a cannon for an arm too. Arm strength really doesn't mean much in and of itself. And your example of Boller further underscores that fact.

I have heard these comparisons of Flacco to Ben before.....I don't think Flacco has the mobility that Ben has.......So I don't see Flacco escaping sacks like Ben does on a regular basis.....

One thing to mention....Flacco did start out at a division one school....He use to play for Pitt and he couldn't hack it there....Which leads to believe that Flacco won't be able to hack it in the NFL....He has a strong arm and can make all the throws...But so did Jeff George and Ryan Leaf....You need more then a strong arm to succeed in the NFL....

Could flacco be the next Ryan leaf I guess we will see he might be looking good now but wait till he hits the field in a game with our deffenders trying to tear his head off.

What's sad is no one is realizing that any of us could go into ratbird camp and make a strong first impression at QB considering who they've had there.

I mean all we would have to do is take the snap from center and take 3 steps back - then it's on to the showers (LOL)

Flacco = a big Boller = a big bust

That's true - it really is all relative:
