When Lamar Jackson was taken No. 32 overall in the draft this year, Ozzie Newsome acknowledged they were “building for the future” with the Heisman Trophy winner. But, he added, “In order for us to win this year, we need Joe Flacco.”
Joe Flacco still hasn’t revealed how he feels about the Ravens using their second first-round draft pick Thursday night to bring in a young quarterback who figures to be groomed as his eventual replacement. He only spoke to fans at the Ravens' DraftFest event.
CBS Sports had me from the opening shot of its telecast of the Ravens win over the Green Bay Packers Sunday. An above-the-stadium shot perfectly captured that vast, cold, empty look of the late-November sky in the upper Midwest where I grew up. Seeing it set the perfect mood for watching the NFL.
