QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“My responsibilities are not only to my family and the people who work for the Ravens. There are over a million stakeholders in the Baltimore area that we have an obligation to. They’re the fans who invest more than three hours on Sunday to watch, listen to, or attend our games. That’s a big difference from owning a nonsports company.” ~ Steve Bisciotti on owning the Ravens

5 ALIVE!

In the Ravens’ three preseason games, QB Joe Flacco completed 43 of 60 passes for 433 yards, with 3 TDs and 1 INT for a 101.6 QB rating.

DID YOU KNOW?

  • In each of the past three seasons (2009-11), QB Joe Flacco and Aaron Rodgers are the only NFL QBs to throw for at least 3,600 yards and 20 TDs while posting 12 INTs or less.
  • The Ravens have won 12 of their last 15 preseason games.
  • This marks the third preseason game the Ravens have ever played against the Rams (2008 and 2010), with all contests taking place in St. Louis. The Rams are the only NFC West team Baltimore has faced in preseason play

LOOKS LIKE OUR FILMSTUDY ISN’T ALONE…

“I’d see Ray [Lewis] and Ed[Reed] always with their iPads, studying and reviewing, and I thought I’d better get in there, too. Ray would say to me, ‘Got something for me?’ And, I wouldn’t. I’d be looking at the film, but I didn’t really know how to study it. Now if Ray or Ed ask me if I have something, I do. I’ve always watched a lot of film, but I’m learning now when I watch, and it’s carrying over to the way I play.” ~ Lardarius Webb

One Rave about “Ravens Crab Bag: Preseason Week 4

  1. Josh on said:

    To me, that’s a pretty astounding statistic regarding Flacco and Rodgers. Rodgers has arguably the best receiver corps in the league, while last year our guys ranked high in overall drops. I know we don’t throw the ball as much as some teams, but there is no question Flacco has been very proficient over the last several years considering who he’s been throwing to. A lot of people get hung up on statistics, but they aren’t a true measure of a QB’s worth.
