Baltimore Ravens Need To Sever Ties With Joe Flacco
Since being drafted 18th overall in the 2008 NFL Draft, Joe Flacco has given the Baltimore Ravens everything he has. However, it is time for both parties to simply move on. This comes on the heels of the Ravens losing in a blowout to the Denver Broncos, making it three straight losses for the first time since 2009. The Ravens three straight december losses is the first of such feat since 2007. Amidst this skid, the Ravens have remained mum on Joe Flacco‘s contract which is up at seasons end. In my mind, Joe can start packing his bags.
After a decent rookie season, Joe Flacco gave plenty of reasons for Baltimore fans to be excited. After a 21 Touchdown sophomore season, Flacco left the Ravens just one win away from a Super Bowl. In a postseason of only one touchdown and three interceptions its no mystery defense got the Ravens to the AFC Championship game. To be fair, Flacco and the Ravens have reached the second round of the NFL playoffs four of his five seasons in the league. But, much of that Raven success has not been because of Flacco’s production.
Since his sophomore season in 2009, Flacco’s passing numbers have remained similar with little if any growth. Standing still in the “league of the quaterback” is not conducive to winning a Super Bowl. All in all, Flacco has shown just how average of a QB he is. Thanks to injuries to defensive standouts Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs, the 2012 season is on the ropes for the Ravens as is. But, a quarterback who is unable to win close games or shine when needed to does not help atone those losses.
Look for the Ravens to make a change this offseason in search for an elite quarterback who would compliment Ray Rice tenfold. I sure would.
