OC Marc Trestman said he doesn't expect the Ravens to use the shotgun much in 2015.

"We're an under-the-center offensive football team," said Trestman. "Defenses and game-planning will determine that. But ultimately, we're under the center." After taking a league-high 625 snaps from the shotgun in 2013, the Ravens backed off that approach by giving Joe Flacco only 243 plays from the shotgun last season. Flacco's 91.0 passer rating last year was his highest since 2010.
Aug 9 - 10:15 AM

Ravens reporter John Eisenberg called this season "a mini contract year" for Joe Flacco.

Flacco's base salary jumps from $4 million to $18 million in 2016. Baltimore would be wise to lower Flacco's cap number by re-working his contract next offseason. The Ravens inked Flacco to a six-year, $120.6 million deal in March of 2013.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley considers Joe Flacco a winner following the draft.

The Ravens gave Flacco a much-needed vertical weapon in first-round speedster Breshad Perriman, who shouldn't have a problem replacing Torrey Smith. In the second round, Ozzie Newsome traded up to snag the class' best tight end in Maxx Williams. These additions along with the arrival of pass-happy OC Marc Trestman give Flacco serious 4,000-yard upside for the first time in his career.
May 5 - 9:46 AM

Joe Flacco said the Ravens lack "that one guy who can stretch the field."

Torrey Smith filled that role previously but is gone to San Francisco. Flacco is left with an underwhelming corps of Kamar Aiken, Marlon Brown, Michael Campanero and Steve Smith. It wouldn't be a bad idea for Baltimore to use its first-round pick at wide receiver, something the Ravens haven't done since 2005.
Apr 26 - 9:20 AM

Owner Steve Bisciotti said the Ravens would like to sign Joe Flacco to a new six-year contract after this season.

Flacco, 30, has an obscene $28.55 million cap number in 2016. The Ravens will be more than happy to extend him and he should be thrilled to get a boatload of cash up front in a new deal. Flacco has never missed a game and never had a losing season during his seven-year NFL career, also posting 10 playoff wins during that span. He's a threat to record his first 4,000-yard season this year with pass-happy Marc Trestman in control of the offense.
Apr 2 - 8:07 AM

Joe Flacco completed 28-of-45 passes for 292 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in the Ravens' 35-31, Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

Flacco started off the game white hot, capping each of Baltimore's first two drives with touchdowns, and entering halftime with three scores. "January Joe" soon turned into "Normal Joe," however, as Flacco posted a 1:1 TD:INT ratio after the break. Flacco was by no means bad, but his second pick was an air-mailed disaster that essentially sealed the game for New England. It was an up-and-down ending to what was arguably Flacco's best season. Flacco's 27 scores were a new career best, while he completed more than 60 percent of his passes for the first time since 2010. Flacco was guided by OC Gary Kubiak, who could be bolting for a head-coaching job. It would be a big loss for the soon-to-be 30-year-old passer.
Jan 10 - 8:21 PM

Joe Flacco completed 18-of-29 passes for 259 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens' Wild Card win over the Steelers.

Flacco continued his streak of playing well on the road in the playoffs. He was in control throughout the game, taking just one sack and finishing without any turnovers. Flacco's touchdowns came on an 11-yard broken play to Torrey Smith and a play-action pass to backup TE Crockett Gillmore in the fourth quarter. The Ravens will take on the Patriots in the Divisional Round on Saturday.
Jan 3 - 11:44 PM

Joe Flacco completed 22-of-36 passes for 312 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens' playoff-clinching win against the Browns.

Flacco and the Ravens' offense struggled mightily through three quarters of this contest, but Flacco completed two big passes to Torrey Smith midway through the fourth to give the Ravens the lead and then capped off another scoring drive with a two-yard pass to Kamar Aiken to put the game to bed. The two touchdown passes give Flacco a career-high 27 this season, and his 3,986 passing yards are also a career high. The Ravens will travel to face either the Bengals or Steelers in the first round of the playoffs next week.

Joe Flacco completed just 21-of-50 passes for 195 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in the Ravens' 25-13, Week 16 loss to the Texans.

Flacco was brutal all afternoon, and now the 9-6 Ravens are behind the eight ball in the AFC playoff picture. They're currently the first team out behind the No. 6-seed Chargers. All three of Flacco's interceptions came in Ravens territory, setting the Texans up for easy points. He was picked off on back-to-back passes in the first half and missed open receivers ad nauseam. It didn't help that Flacco couldn't step into his passes because of the havoc J.J. Watt and Jared Crick were wreaking on Baltimore's offensive line. It led to arguably Flacco's worst game of his career. The Ravens have to beat the Browns at home in Week 17.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 04:35:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 20-of-30 passes for 221 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions in the Ravens' 20-12, Week 15 win over the Jaguars.

Flacco's biggest play may have been a 10-yard scramble deep in the fourth quarter that sealed the win and kept the Ravens' playoff hopes healthy and alive at 9-5. On his touchdown pass, Flacco found Owen Daniels from three yards out in the third quarter. It came one play after the two hooked up for a 25-yard gain. Flacco and the Ravens head to Houston in Week 16. Ravens OC Gary Kubiak has some extra incentive to put up points after he was fired by the Texans as their head coach following last season. Flacco is a middling QB2.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 04:23:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 25-of-33 passes for 269 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Ravens' 28-13, Week 14 win over the Dolphins, adding seven rushes for 16 yards and a third score.

Even with Torrey Smith (knee) essentially inactive, Flacco was on the money against the Dolphins' unraveling defense. Flacco was two fortunate calls away from a much-worse afternoon, however. He appeared to get safetied late in the third quarter, but Miami coach Joe Philbin bafflingly opted not to challenge. Flacco also lost a fumble that was overturned on review. The call could have gone either way. Flacco's pick was a horrific pass he threw up for grabs in the end zone. Flacco has played reasonably well for most of 2014, and will be on the streaming radar against the Jaguars in Week 15.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 04:51:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 19-of-31 passes for 225 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 13 loss to the Chargers.

The Ravens moved the ball up and down the field at will in the first half, but settled for three short Justin Tucker field goals. It came back to bite them, as Philip Rives engineered one of his signature fourth-quarter comebacks. Flacco's performance was still somewhat encouraging, as he was able to connect often with Torrey Smith as Steve Smith was bottled up by Brandon Flowers. Flacco will be a low-upside QB2 in a tough matchup at Miami in Week 14.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 05:28:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 18-of-24 passes for 243 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions in the Ravens' 34-27, Week 12 win over the Saints on Monday night.

It was merely a game of catch for Flacco. The Saints' secondary offered little resistance, while Justin Forsett shredded New Orleans on the ground for 182 yards and two touchdowns. Flacco's lone touchdown pass went to Steve Smith Sr. to cap a nine-play, 97-yard opening drive. Flacco simply threw the ball up in the air, with Smith Sr. making a sensational catch in the end zone while falling to the ground. The Ravens host the Chargers in Week 13, where Flacco will be a middling QB2.
Mon, Nov 24, 2014 11:50:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 16-of-27 passes for 169 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 10 win over the Titans.

He only took one sack. The Ravens' offense was putrid in the early going, but got rolling on the back of Justin Forsett, who finished with 20-112-2 on the ground. Flacco and the passing game simply never found a rhythm. His lone touchdown pass was good to Torrey Smith on a 32-yard bomb. Baltimore goes on a bye in Week 11. Flacco will take on the Saints in Week 12.
