Ravens Begin Training Camp, Joe Flacco Era Officially Underway in Baltimore

Filed under: Ravens, AFC NorthIn yesterday’s , Jamison Hensley asks a question most fans have been contemplating since the Ravens traded back into the first round of the NFL draft to take quarterback Joe Flacco: can the former Delaware star win the starting gig in Baltimore?

Heading into the team’s first official training camp practice, Kyle Boller was the odds-on favorite to get the first-team snaps, but that had more to do with seniority than what the depth chart might look like come September. And while Boller seems like the safe choice to win the job, Troy Smith, last year’s fifth-round pick, has been impressive during off-season workouts.

Whatever happens, first-year head coach John Harbaugh ain’t talking: “We’ve said this from Day One: Our plan is to go with the best quarterback at that time,” Harbaugh said. “Our goal is for those guys to make that decision based on the way they play.” Hardly earth-shattering stuff, there, but you can’t really argue with the philosophy given that Boller hasn’t established himself as anything other than an NFL backup, and Smith and Flacco are unproven but have loads of potential. Ultimately, the job’s Flacco’s, but unlike Boller, the Ravens should bring him along slowly. Having Brian Billick working for Fox Sports should go a long way in making sure that doesn’t happen.
