Joe Flacco
 
Positives: Fits the football into tight spots that others can’t with his superior velocity and classic delivery. Made a few good decisions to not force throws and took off on a fairly nimble scramble considering his imposing size.

Negatives: Sailed too many sideline throws that lacked timing and touch with several darts far off target. Intercepted by Fabian Washington on a pass deflected and nearly picked off by Bart Scott.

Stock: Holding steady as he learns on the job. Doesn’t seem intimidated.

Kyle Boller

 

Positives: Connected with Marcus Smith, who pitched it to Todd Heap on a classic hook and ladder. Accuracy and chemistry on short to intermediate throws is a plus.

Negatives: Wild on most deep throws and put his receivers in harm’s way a few times with late passes. Too content to dump it off instead of challenging the defense vertically.

Stock: Slightly down after a mostly encouraging Friday.

Troy Smith

 

Positives: Building a connection with rookie Marcus Smith. Has good instincts and confidence. Seems to learn from his mistakes.

Negatives: Telegraphed a pass intercepted by Derrick Martin, badly overthrew a deep ball to Patrick Carter. Seems to just throw it up for grabs on longer patterns. 

Stock: Dipping slightly. Not taking control of competition he led entering camp.
