Smith, Flacco to Get All the Snaps Against Rams, Boller to Watch

Kyle Boller still has his supporters, but, frankly, most Ravens fans gave up on Brian Billick’s pet project long ago. Now, the future is Troy Smith, for the time being, at least, and Boller will assume the position.

I think most people support the decision to go with Smith — even if Harbaugh hasn’t “officially” made the announcement — primarily because everybody knows what Boller can do. Seems like as good a time as any to give Smith the same opportunity. And according to the ‘ Aaron Wilson, Boller won’t even see the field against the Rams tonight.

The plan is for Smith to start with first-round pick Joe Flacco on mop-up duty. “The main thing a quarterback does is he moves the ball and puts points on the board,” coach John Harbaugh said. “That’s what we would like to see. There’s a lot that goes into that.

“Guys can make plays, or guys won’t make plays around him. Of course, you would love to see that part of it as well as running the offense well, which he’s done a good job at to this point.” Hmm. This doesn’t sound like a Boller-led offense. To be fair, it doesn’t sound like a Billick-trained offense, either. Ultimately, Smith is just a placeholder for Flacco, unless, of course, he turns out to be Derek Anderson. You know, the kid the Ravens drafted and then released two years ago before going on to a Pro Bowl season with the Browns last season.
