Kyle Boller Shines Early, Offensive Line Is the Biggest Question

Filed under: Ravens, AFC NorthThe Ravens are in the midst of finding their starting quarterback, even though they drafted Joe Flacco, the future of the franchise, three months ago. But he’s a rookie, and as these things go, it takes time to make the transition from college (particularly Division I-AA) to the NFL.

Which means former future of the franchise Kyle Boller, and second-year player Troy Smith are the front runners for the job. According to the ’s Don Markus, Smith struggled during yesterday’s practice, and Flacco, well, looked like a rookie. Which is to say, he was all over the place. Yesterday’s big winner? Boller, who was the most consistent of the bunch.

Still, nothing has been decided, so the race is still wide open. But with a slew of injuries along the offensive line, it’s not clear who will be blocking for the eventual starter. With both Jared Gaither and Adam Terry out with injuries, it has been left second-year player Mike Kracalick to fill the spot left vacant by perennial All-Pro Jonathan Ogden. Kracalick definitely has the size (6-8, 340), but he needs work on his footwork.Hmm. You think there’s a drop off from Kracalick to Ogden? On the upside, at least we won’t have to watch the already-fragile Steve McNair take repeated body blows every Sunday, so there’s that.

The regular season is more than a month away, so there’s plenty of time to get everybody healthy, then it’ll be just a matter of getting everybody on the same page. Plus, it could be a lot worse.
