Harbaugh on the backup QBs

Ravens coach John Harbaugh revealed an interesting statistic about the team's first minicamp, saying backup quarterbacks Troy Smith and John Beck both had higher completion percentages than Joe Flacco.

"So, that’s competition right there," Harbaugh said. "It’s a little challenge to Joe. Now, they threw more interceptions, too, so that’s a plus on Joe’s side. But they’re all pushing one another and they’re playing well."

Harbaugh seemed pleased by the progress of Smith, who is entering his third season in the NFL.

"Troy’s throwing the ball very well," he said. "He’s come a long way the last year as a passer. He’s an NFL-caliber passer."
