Ravens Locker Room Quietly Lobbying for Troy Smith for QB

Surely noboby was surprised by Kyle Boller’s mostly-effective-save-two-turnovers performance against the Pats in the preseason opener last week. Boller’s been in the league since 2003 and that’s his M.O. Two years ago, it got him benched — the Ravens were finally able to a) admit they had some shortcomings at the position, and b) do something about it by trading for Steve McNair.

McNair “retired” this offseason, Baltimore drafted Joe Flacco, and while he matures into an NFL superstar, Boller and second-year player Troy Smith are battling for the job. Boller was 11 of 15 for 102 yards and an interception on Thursday night; Smith was 5 of 12 for 74 yards. But according to the ’s Mike Reiss, Smith’s the locker room favorite. One of the undercurrents felt from the Ravens’ visit to Gillette Stadium was the support in the team’s locker room for Troy Smith to be the team’s starting quarterback on opening day. Linebacker Ray Lewis, in particular, is privately lobbying for Smith - the former Heisman Trophy winner from Ohio State - to take the reins over Kyle Boller and 2008 first-round draft choice Joe Flacco. Has Ray Lewis ever done anything “privately?” I think not. Whatever, it seems many fans are in agreement, and since we all know what Boller can do, giving Smith a shot doesn’t seems like such a bad idea. Not sure if it’ll happen, but if it does, no one would be complaining. Particularly those who play for the Ravens.
