Ray Ray Ravens

A Flacco Thread

437 posts in this topic

The last Flacco thread was shut down. Without a QB thread any team thread is not complete! Flacco pushed this team every drive in a game we could not win. The offense was the winning aspect of this game. RESPECT FOR THE MAN WHO HAS THE BALL THE MOST!!!! WE need to realize he is the center of the offense. LETS GO RAVENS!!!!!!!!

Just wanted to say this... the offense does NOT run through Ray Rice. It runs through Joe Flacco. Then, if he succeeds, it can run through Ray Rice. But it all starts with #5.

Joe was spot on today. Sure, he scared me a few times. He made plays, though. He made throws than few other QBs can make. He stepped up in the collapsing pocket. He moved in the pocket. He made small and big throws. He wowed me today more than ever.

The guy is going to win us a Superbowl one day - I don't know when, but he is a big game quarterback. I don't care about blowouts to Houston or a meaningless quagmire in Jacksonville or a loss to Charlie Batch. Those games didn't determine our seasons. With the season on the line, Flacco delivered. He's now reached the AFCCG in 3 of five seasons, had an opportunity at a 4th until a whole series of events (including his pick) derailed that, was a stripped pass from playing in a Superbowl against an opponent I think we had a great shot at beating, and now he just avenged the second worst loss of our season, to get an opportunity to basically replay last year's game and rewrite history a bit.

I think Joe easily could have put up 400 yards and a 4 TD pass if they didn't just overload rice with wasteful carries and let Joe pass the rock
[/quote]talk about overload. We had 32 first down snaps, 22 where runs. Roughly, I've had a few beers but that's how I counted it from espn stats. Even the announcers knew we were running every first down in the 2nd half.

We had six first down runs in the first half. So in the second half and ot, we had 16 first down runs.

Beginning to really think this comes from harbaugh

One of the commentators even pointed out, that we were constantly giving the ball to Rice on 1st down. We still won, but I hope Jim steps his game up against the Pats/Texans. We don't want get into Cam Cameron levels of predictability.

Joe certainly delivered in a huge game with everything on the line. He seems to play more confidently with Jim Caldwell as OC. As soon as the Super Bowl is over, I hope he will be given the contract he has earned. I am impressed with his durability.

I called it, Flacco would be the first QB to pass for 300yds 3Tds against the Broncos.

Didn't understand it at all. I thought we'd at least continue to go deep a couple times in the 2nd half too. But I'd love to hear what Caldwell says about constantly running on 1st and 2nd down. Real head-scratcher. Could've sworn Caldwell got pangs of loyalty and wanted Peyton to win. lol.

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]What can you say that hasn't already been said? Joe... he has outplayed Tom Brady in New England... he has outplayed Peyton Manning in Denver.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]What more does he have to prove outside of a Super Bowl appearance/win?[/i][/font]

Well, lets not forget, that he is new to this team, calls plays from the playbook he didn't draw up and just called 4th NFL game in his OC career.
In the end, it's save to say that Joe plays better without Cameron's playcalling, no matter if we keep Caldwell as our OC or get someone more experienced.

on that pass to pitta that was broken up there was single coverage on torrey, coulda been 6. Couple of missed passes and this wouldn't be so close. can't make the same mistakes next week. Must control time of possession.

Mike Preston, the only 1 of 7 Baltimore Sun's staff writers to pick the Ravens to win the game, gave Joe an "A" for today's performance:

[b] [size=5]Quarterback: A[/size][/b]

Joe Flacco threw some excellent passes and handled pressure in the pocket well. The two touchdown passes to Torrey Smith were placed perfectly and that heave to Jacoby Jones in the final seconds was more than Denver expected. [b]Grade: A[/b]
