I think he is a really athletic player and an OK QB. But he's definitely not comfortable in the pocket. There were a lot of times when WRs were open down field, but he didn't see them, or chose not to throw to them. He needs to work on his reads. He's definitely exciting, and brings an entirely different style to the Ravens offense. But I would NOT feel comfortable if Flacco went down. But good for Tyrod. It was nice to see him out there.

I think we got from Taylor exactly what it said on the box: top shelf footwork, average throwing. I'd say he left us assured that if Flacco went down, he could come in and contribute - but he's not there to beat him for the starting role.

But he's good for a backup.

What I especially liked was how he fooled the D guys by going for the sideline - just to cut back when he got there to gain some more yards. AFC North D players are definitely not accustomed to QB's not scrambling towards the line as soon as possible :)

What I like about Taylor is that he complements are weak o-line play he can put the footwork on someone to get out of a sack

You better hope Flacco stays healthy Taylor is brutal he hangs in the pocket for about a half a second then just bolts the WR are still running routes by the time they turn around the offensive line and taylor are already back in the huddle waiting for the next play.

There is no QB controversey in Baltimore. That being said, Taylor did much better than I expected and better than Mink is giving him credit for in this article. There is no need to list "mistakes" to temper his performance Tyrod is our back up and this is his first regular season action in two years.

The interception returned for a touchdown came off of a deflection. In fact, play calling had a lot to do with the pick. If the lion share of pass attempts are going to the flats, its only a matter of time before someone on the 6th best defense in the NFL jumps a route. Its not like Taylor threw the ball late in the endzone and chased a guy 99 yards before surrendering a touchdown. In fact, it was nothing like watching the JJ swatt show that we saw in Texas. Dunlap made a great play on a much anticipated pass attempt. That's all it was.

This "miss" to Jacoby Jones was as much Jacoby's fault as Tyrod's. Anyone who watches as much football as I do will notice that Jacoby led the quarterback to the sideline. Help your young QB out. If Jacoby were 3 feet in from the sideline, he gives the QB more space to lay the ball out for him. Touchdown.

Here's one you didn't mention. There was a clear miscommunication between Pierce and Tyrod. Tyrod expected Pierce to cut a route short and Pierce was looking for the pass over the top for a long touchdown sprint. I chalked this up to the first time these two were in a game situation together.

Here's my point. Tyrod did well. Very well. Joe is our quarterback. We don't have to temper Tyrod's performance.

Is it me or does Oher getting beat cause a game chanign play just about every week? Not to mention the dumb penalties. People blamed Flacco pocket pressence (not saying it doesn't need to improve), but if your tackle whiffs on guys, the QB is either going to get killed or make a bad play. Taylor was running for his life the whole game.

Oher, Reid got beat like a mule. Some of those guys beating them were backups. Either the Ravens Front office has to draft better or position coaches need to improve. Guys like Oher, Reid, J Smith, Kindle, Cody were supposed to be 1st - 3rd round picks that could fill holes on the roster and not create them. After those draft picks they still have holes at Tackle, LG, pass rusher, and secondary. What a waste of time and cap space.

@law215 idk but I saw one play today where Carlos Dunlap ran around him and about halfway during the play... he just let him loose. That was the most head-scratching bizzare frustrating play of the game leading to fourth down. Carlos literally had just started to try to work around oher then oher just stopped blocking him. To be honest I don't know what had happened!

I have been saying Oher was a joke for awhile but the Ravens are determined to play him at left tackle even if he showed up in his u ne'er wear with a broken leg. I can't figure it out because any other left tackle in the league would be sitting by now but the Coaches have a love affair with Oher.

Another player that showed some good ability was Deonte Thompson, even though he only had 4-26, he made some tough catches and deserves to get some starting time next season.

Taylor Ranks with most back-up QBs as a guy who is maybe good enough to win a game or two if your starter goes down, but clearly not worth starting for an entire season.

QB Tyrod Taylor lacks Joe's size and big arm but he put on display something, innate, that Joe wishes he had - "Pocket Presence"!

Jim Caldwell called a game suited perfectly for Taylor! The Option was run effectively as Tyrod Taylor and Anthony Allen broke off huge runs! Tyrod was on target with his passing! One miscue was a size issue, not a passing issue and the other was because Bernard Pierce didn't turn!

Still, it was exciting to see the Raven Offense move the ball consistently! The game would have been a resounding victory were it not for the offensive penalties!

Lemme guess! You love big arms throwing deep, low percentage passes even though, at best, only one of three is completed?

I can see Tyrod Taylor being the Number 1 guy for a number of reasons and if one disagrees, just look down 95 South the D.C.!

I can see him leading a ball control, run-oriented, short pass with runs-after-catch offense that moves the ball consistently featuring Rice, Pierce and Leach hauling the lumber and our Receivers dashing after smart, short catches! Plus, he can throw long when called for, not just because he can!

Yet, to each his own, and we've annointed Joe E-Lite, so I'll go with the flow!

Just don't play Tyrod cheap! He's a baller who could get it done!

Dude did you not watch that game? If you actually think Taylor is a better option than Flacco you are out of your mind. We have made the playoffs 5 straight years with Flacco which happens to be the longest streak in the NFL right now.

I was amazed how good Taylor looked. he had second string O Line in there and all 2nd string receivers as well. he had second string back and made them look good. If he had had more time I think we would have seen what he could do with his arm. I'd never seen him play before and he looked really good to me.

Taylor looked real good with all these teams desperate for a QB they could easily trade him for a few picks he's already shown he's better than Sanchez Kolb Quinn and a host of others Ozzie work those phones this offseason

No, I don't, Dude! I don't expect Taylor to replace Flacco but yes, I did watch the game and saw there was no QB turnobers save the outstanding play by a DT that wen't for a pick 6! But I can see that with Joe in the opposing Red Zone!

I just think after 5 years, Joe E-Lite is inconsistent and still needs a lot of work,... Franchise tag looms!
