RG had time and had open receivers yet could not be accurate. He misread several defenses, making the wrong reads. Yes, the line stunk last night, but he still could have made some good throws.

The rook would have done the same thing if not more because he is more maneuverable than RG was, is.

There are no more linemen that are free agents worth taking. Ozzie screwed the past five drafts for linemen, thus what we have today.

Even Zeus jr is terrible, he missed blocks, couldn't stay on blocks he even takled his own runningback while trying to find someone to block on the 2nd level.

Saragusa is horrible, the English dude, Elama what ever, is very bad and don't get me started on the center who can't shot gun snap consistantly.....

I disagree. They should carry three quarterbacks. RG had a tough first half because the line was unable to hold off the pass rush. Jackson had his 'breakout' game against the Dolphins' rookie team. If Joe goes down it will be a long year without an experienced quarterback.

 

I agree the O-line is hurting for good backups but can you imagine what the less mobile Flacco would have done if he had played? He wouldn't have been able to do much of anything because he's less mobile. 

 

Ozzie has to find some backup lineman on offense. And until they get a decent line they need to keep Griffin as the backup qb.

Not a whole lot you can do about the OL now.  I have always seen that as the achiles fpr the team.

I don't think Goose 2.0 will ever bounce back.  Having your whole knee shredded is pretty much death to an NFL career.  Dex proved that to me.

Yes Jackson is more maneuverable than either Joe or RG and he will continue to be----until he gets his first injury by running into and over tacklers.

 

The OL needs help. I wasn't suggesting that Ozzie go get a free agent now but more towards looking to one who might get cut from some other teams for either cap savings or a roster numbers game. It's not likely but it is possible. The best we can do is hope to get some experienced backups. The O-line will be OK when Stanley and Yanda are back. Not great but OK.

I just don't expect Yanda to be the guy from the past.

How Long Should Joe Flacco's Leash Be on Ravens' Starting QB Job?

Jackson's passer rating jumped from 42.9 against the Chicago Bears in the Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 2, to 62.0 in Baltimore's second preseason outing, to 76.8 in its third, to 134.6 in a dress rehearsal against the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday. 

The 21-year-old Louisville product completed seven of 10 passes for 98 yards and a touchdown while rushing three times for 39 yards and another score. He led three long scoring drives in the 27-10 victory and looked crisp in what head coach John Harbaugh thinks was a breakout game, according to ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley

 

 

 

I think this talk is getting silly.  I expect Joe to be benched but Jackson doing well against basically the kind of talent he saw last yr is no big deal.

Qbr in the pre season, just click bait for the uninformed. 7 of 10 passes that were 2, 5, 8 yards away is nothing to talk about. He played well yes, but as you said papa, against pizza delivery drivers.

Earlier, I said we would keep two QB's. I now change that to three. Jackson is not ready.

 You expect Flacco to be benched? Has he EVER been benched before? Is Lamar that good that Joe should be benched? I hate to say this, but- you're a real ass clown.

No.  But I don't think they had anyone as close to Joe's talent level like RG3.  Also Jackson could be seen as the way to save the coaching staff from Joe's bad performance.

In just two weeks, Baltimore has vaulted from 27th in the league in rushing to 11th.

Baltimore Ravens: Why RG3 Will Not Make the Ravens’ 53-Man Roster It’s a good story that Robert Griffin III has had a good training camp/preseason, but it doesn’t make sense for him to make the Baltimore Ravens roster.

Hopefully the Baltimore Ravens will be able to trade Robert Griffin III to a team in need of a backup quarterback in the league before teams need to be at 53 players. It would be a little ridiculous for the Ravens to carry three QB’s all season.

Say RG3 does make the 53-man roster, does that mean he would be the backup and 1st round pick Lamar Jackson is the third string QB? I’m sure a lot of fans will be scratching their heads considering the Ravens traded back up into the first round of the draft to get Jackson.

 

The good thing for Griffin is that he’s played well enough to be on a team with a need for a backup quarterback. His preseason numbers are good in limited time. He’s started two of the four games and has completed 27 of 41 pass attempts for 243 yards with two touchdowns. He’s also ran for 52 yards on 11 rushing attempts.

For someone that was out of the league in 2017, he’s shown that he’s fully healthy from his previous injuries that plagued him in Washington. Maybe all he needed was to get healthy for him to show his potential instead of being rushed back on the field.

If Ozzie Newsome could work out some sort of trade before the roster needs to be finalized, then it will show that this offseason signing was a success. If not, it gave the team a sense of how good RG3 could be when healthy.

Robert Griffin does have the talent to be in the NFL, but it won’t be with the Baltimore Ravens as the backup quarterback. That’s already been determined by Lamar Jackson as he’s the future for the Ravens.

Totally disagree.

I also think they missed the point that If Joe goes down or plays poorly Harbs needs to have some hope to hook his tenure on.
