Joe Flacco 'in total command' of new offense
by Larry Hartstein |

New coordinator Gary Kubiak said he loves the way quarterback Joe Flacco is running the offense he's installing with the Ravens.

"It's kind of the third time we're going through our system, teaching it, and I think they've adjusted very well, but the most important thing is [Flacco] has adjusted extremely well," Kubiak told the Baltimore Sun. "He's got to lead the pack. He's done that from day one. He's got total command of what's going on right now."

Kubiak said Flacco is demonstrating good footwork and looks sharp in the short passing game.

"His ability to go through progressions, to me, is exceptional," Kubiak said. "Obviously, we've got to cut the sacks down a great deal this year. It's a big point of emphasis. The best way to do that is with your quarterback getting rid of the ball."

Kubiak sees a lot of upside with Joe Flacco
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

New Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak is impressed with quarterback Joe Flacco, reports the team's official website.

"I had no idea how good an athlete he is. He's a very good athlete," Kubiak said.

Kubiak likes to have his quarterbacks get out of the pocket on play-action passes, and Flacco could shine in this system.

"The things we like to do moving around, the zone-pass schemes that we like to run, I think fit to a lot of his strengths," Kubiak said. "We just need to continue to get better with them."

Even though Kubiak likes the way Flacco moves, the key is his arm strength.

"I knew [his arm] was good, but I had no idea just how good it was," Kubiak said. "The big ball is always in play with Joe. … This league is about making big plays. It’s hard [when you go] 3 or 4 yards a pop to do it. You have to make some big plays, and Joe gives you the ability to do that."

Joe Flacco likes team's offseason moves
by Larry Hartstein |

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said he's excited about the team's offseason moves, including the additions of receiver Steve Smith and tight end Owen Daniels and the re-signing of left tackle Eugene Monroe and receiver/returner Jacoby Jones. Flacco also should have starting tight end Dennis Pitta at 100 percent after he missed 12 games last year with a hip injury.

"No doubt about it, these guys are some explosive players," Flacco told the Baltimore Sun. "We're going to expect them to come in and help us out and be pretty good. These guys are ready to go and work and build on what we have.

"These guys are going to do nothing but help. They're proven players from across the league, and it will be interesting to see how they come in and fit in and help us out."

Joe Flacco, receivers to get early start
by Larry Hartstein |

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco will work out with his receivers before the team's offseason program.

"Joe has communicated that through texts, and Torrey [Smith] has told me that they have a session planned and are trying to work out the dates," coach John Harbaugh said at the NFL owners meetings. "I'll be looking forward to seeing how it goes. It is important. It's big."

Flacco's receiving corps includes Torrey Smith, Steve Smith, Marlon Brown, Jacoby Jones and tight end Dennis Pitta. Flacco threw 19 touchdowns and a career-high 22 interceptions last year.

Former GM Angelo 'not sold' on Joe Flacco as an elite QB
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

On the same week that NFL Insider Jason La Canfora suggested quarterbacks like Joe Flacco were underpaid, former Bears general manager wrote that he's "not sold" on Joe Flacco as an elite quarterback. 

"He only gets into (the Solid Traits but Limited) category because of his Super Bowl win," Angelo wrote on "I'm not sold he has the ability to be an elite QB. He can play too cautious or get locked on to a receiver. He can be hot and cold, needs to be more room temperature; if the Ravens are going to make a run again."

Flacco had a nightmarish season in 2013, throwing 19 touchdowns and 22 interceptions.
