Now, in fairness to Flacco, it was a great throw. It was right in traffic, right where only Boldin could catch it, and it was in the middle of the field, an area the Ravens quarterback completely avoided last year in the second half of the season. But one great throw in five series? After a good game last week, you were kind of hoping he'd take another step forward. Alas, it didn't happen. The rest of his passes were check downs and comebacks. Nothing fancy, but nothing that suggests the Ravens offense was on the verge of breaking out. He did throw a nice stop route to Demitrius Williams on his fifth series (it had some zip on it) but the rest of his throws can be summed up as such: Meh. In fact, the whole offense was meh. We're entering the third year of the Flacco Adventure and I still don't have a clue what to expect week in and week out. He still looks uncomfortable and awkward in the pocket more often that not. He still seems to lack zip on his deep throws. After playing well in the Ravens' first preseason game, you'd kind of hope he'd build off of that and take another tiny step forward. Instead, it was more treading water.
