Heading into Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Ravens have started two quarterbacks, Matt Schaub and Jimmy Clausen, in the past three weeks, and a third, Ryan Mallett, could get an opportunity before season's end.
New Ravens quarterback Ryan Mallett spent all day Tuesday in meetings trying to learn the team's offense, as coach John Harbaugh said there's "absolutely a chance" he gets on the field in the final three games of the season.
The Ravens made their signing of quarterback Ryan Mallett official Tuesday as part of a six-player set of transactions that saw two players waived and veteran defensive end Chris Canty placed on season-ending injured reserve.
Ravens quarterback Matt Schaub might not practice much this week as he remains sore from several hard hits in Sunday¿s loss to Miami, coach John Harbaugh said, and his ability to play through pain will decide his game status Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.
Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jimmy Clausen, who played for Ravens offensive coordinator Marc Trestman in last season in Chicago, was claimed by the Ravens on waivers to back up new starter Matt Schaub.
In early August, when I released my monthly power rankings at the start of the preseason, some of you said it was too early to gauge how the NFL's 32 stack up against each other. Too early for power rankings? Psssh. A little premature speculation has never hurt anyone. After all, it's just that -- speculation and nothing tangible.
My apologies for interruptions in this week's blog schedule. I was actually doing real reporting for a change. (I know, crazy talk.) But I have still had time to stay on top of my many fantasy football leagues. I completed another draft last week, and I have three more between now and next Thursday's regular season kickoff.
Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had a fine season in 2010, passing for 3,622 yards and 25 touchdowns. He led the Ravens to another playoff win, but he literally caved under pressure in the 31-24 loss to the Steelers in the divisional round. Flacco was sacked five times, lost a fumble and tossed an interception. We know the Steelers like to blitz, but did other teams take the same aggressive approach against Flacco?
The scouting combine and most pro day workouts have been completed, and with the NFL draft just a few weeks away, there has been a significant amount of shuffling in my third NFL mock draft of the offseason. So who will the Ravens pick?
