Some interesting things Kubiak said about Joe Flacco was that he thought Joe was faster on foot, which is good for the new offense. He also said that his arm is very strong and so accurate, despite the numbers this past season. It will be interesting to see what they do tonight.
WJZ-TV Sports Anchor Mark Viviano joined Glenn and Bob on Sports Rehab to preview the Ravens Preseason opener this Thursday night against the San Francisco 49ers.
Is Andy Dalton worth it though? According to Lapham, “Andy Dalton can win games with them. He averaged 10 wins a season. Doesn’t have the arm strength but he has good numbers.” Dalton’s game is more running than passing. With Dalton looking good what is going on with the other positions? The Bengals are looking good on defense but Lapham says that if there is anything to be worried about, it would be the offensive line. All the other positions all have great starters besides the o-line.

“I think the Steelers are flat out better than Baltimore, and I think the Bengals are slightly better as well,” Kostos claimed. “That leaves the Ravens on the outside looking in.”
Some information on the Ravens, Hernandez spoke to the guys mainly about the Smiths, Torrey and Steve. According to Hernandez, “Steve Smith will probably not put up the numbers as he did in Carolina.” Steve will most likely be used to take some attention off of Torrey, don’t rule him out though! Steve Smith will most likely do some nice things this season.
