I hope they lean on the offense and the passing game. I am still one that does not buy all of the hype of Flacco.

He was a QB on a run first offense....with a great defense. His passing numbers were not elite.

I don't think anyone considers him an elite passer. He is a smart QB with a big arm that doesn't make a lot of mistakes. I can't imagine the Ravens ever becoming an air it out offense. Doesn't fit their style. I think they will be really good this year.

He is the ideal John Fox QB.

Don't those reasons mean production won't be elite? Also Sanchez had the best rushing attack, best defense, and he was 32nd in passing attempts, he played far worse than flacco.

My point exactly.

I am not sure Flacco or Sanchez would be a top tier QB in a heavy passing offense. I don't view Flacco or Sanchez as much better than Matt Moore.

I also think the Ravens Defense will take a step back this year. Ed Reed is injured (might not play), Ray Lewis is another year older, their DB's are really banged up. They will still be good, just starting to get long in the tooth.....much like what happened to the awesome TB defense a few years back.

They are still one of the better teams in the AFC.

I view Sanchez as worse than Moore at this point in time. Last year, Sanchez was only better than Jake Delhomme (and you might could debate that).

Theme - great defense can make the conservative QB look better than reality. Damn game managers....

The biggest thing that will keep Baltimore in games defensively is their D-Line... too much up front for most O-Lines to handle... if they can't get pressure that way, their DBs won't hold their own and will get burnt...

I'm looking forward to see if our D line can stop Ray Rice. If we can stop him, we should have a good season defensively.
