QB calamity

Talk about a dynamic development! The Ravens scratched Troy Smith from tonight's start against the St. Louis Rams with a sudden case of the flu and don't want to start Kyle Boller because of some shoulder soreness.

Does this mean the Joe Flacco era is going to start early?

Probably not, but it certainly is an intriguing development. If Flacco plays adequately (asking him to play well under these conditions would be unfair), it could have an impact on the team's plans for him, though I doubt you're going to see him starting against the Bengals in the regular season opener.

The bigger question is this: Do the Ravens have to consider signing Daunte Culpepper (right) to assure they'll have at least two viable quarterbacks on Sept. 7?
