Throughout the entire offseason, the Baltimore Ravens have talked about how they believe quarterback Joe Flacco will succeed in Gary Kubiak's offense.
"It’s a timing offense, and to me Joe is really built for that," coach John Harbaugh said.
In Kubiak's new system, Flacco will likely be asked to get the ball out quicker than previous years. Kubiak is teaching Flacco to throw the ball when he hits the ball of his foot on the three-step drop. The West Coast offense is predicated on rhythm and quick releases.
Losing Anquan Boldin to free agency and Dennis Pitta to injury certainly hurt Flacco, who finished #19 after three straight top 14 finishes. Pitta is back, but Boldin is still gone, though the team acquired Steve L Smith to replace him. Expect more low-end QB2 numbers given all the depth at QB.
