These athletes rack up championships yet manage to remain completely boring.
As a reward for his outstanding performance in last season’s playoffs, Joe Flacco became the highest-paid player in NFL history. His $120.6 million contract now stands third behind Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan. Flacco is currently ranked 26th among quarterbacks statistically as he strives to turn around his season and that of the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens.
With all the turn over in personnel the Ravens saw in the off season, maybe it’s time to turn over the philosophy of the offense. Time to be a little more conservative.
I said last week that I won’t be fooled by the Ravens win over the Bengals. I warned others not to be fooled either.
The Ravens offense bears much of the burden of defeat but the defense, however exhausted they may be by the end of the game, need to make 3rd down stands.
It continues to be a test in patience watching Joe Flacco. His inconsistent play leaves more to be desired.

The Baltimore Ravens have become accustomed to delays in football due to circumstances beyond their control (last year’s Super Bowl power outage for example). Sunday was no different as Baltimore’s game was delayed nearly two hours due to a severe thunderstorm in Chicago. But once football resumed, the Ravens were unable to weather the storm against the Bears.
With the losses and injuries piling up, the Bears (5-4) host the Baltimore Ravens (4-5) on Sunday in a matchup between teams trying to stay in postseason contention.
Joe Flacco is feeling the pressure of being quarterback of the Baltimore Ravens, and it has nothing to do with his $120.6 million contract or stature as MVP of the last Super Bowl.
The defending Super Bowl Champions have had a rough go of it in 2013. The wins have been scarce and the losses have been heartbreaking. But through it all, the Ravens remain in the playoff hunt. But if Baltimore doesn’t improve offensively, none of it will matter.
Steve Davis gives 3 options to explain why Ray Rice just isn’t cutting it right now on the Ravens running game.
