On Thursday, I blogged about a conversation I had with ESPN’s Matt Williamson, a former NFL scout, about Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense. He said the Ravens are a “smidge” behind the Steelers in the AFC North because Pittsburgh has...

Last week, I chatted with Matt Williamson of ESPN’s Scouts Inc., and I got plenty of mileage out of our 15-minute phone conversation. To recap, Williamson, a former scout for the Browns, thinks the Steelers are slightly superior to the Ravens,...

Joe Flacco had a strong first half but did very little in the second. It has become typical of Flacco: hot for two quarters, cool for the other two. Those two touchdown passes were well-thrown, but Flacco gets a lot of yards going to his...

Joe Flacco completed only 12 of 19 passes for 102 yards, but he was effective and was impressive in making plays outside the pocket. The touchdown passes to T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Derrick Mason were beauties, but Flacco missed Anquan...

Joe Flacco had two turnovers that led to 10 Pittsburgh points, and his decision-making was slow and poor. He missed several open receivers, and a third-year quarterback shouldn't be taking sacks when he is out of the pocket. That's...
