The Baltimore Ravens went to the Super Bowl a few years ago but they were not the same team last year that won the Super Bowl and it’s something that the team is going to try and change this upcoming season to get back to the postseason and possibly even the Super Bowl.
Joe Falcco got a fat contract after that Super Bowl win but he didn’t really live up to the expectation last season that was set forth before him. He wasn’t totally disappointing but Flacco needs to step up and lead in 2014 the way he sort of did in 2013 but didn’t totally.
He’s seeing a lot of action against the Dallas Cowboys in the Ravens’ second preseason game, and he’s looked pretty alright so far. One of the highlights was a touchdown pass that looked like Flacco was playing in a regular season game, which is what the Ravens need.
Flacco and the Ravens have talent, and no matter how disliked they’re going to be thanks to their lean stance with Ray Rice and beating women, but the team is poised for a big year and that’s going to reliant on Flacco.
