Flacco Officially a Baltimore Raven

Five years and $30 million. That’s how long and how much it will take for Joe Flacco to become the face of the Baltimore Ravens franchise.

There’s been no secret that Flacco will play understudy for as long as possible. With Brett Favre rumors to the side, that means he has, at the most, this season to prepare while Kyle Boller or Troy Smith gets the nod for opening day.

Which may or may not be a good thing for Flacco and the Ravens.

Fans expect him to make an appearance this season, for better or for worse. He’s the quarterback they’ve been waiting for since the arrival of the franchise. As crazy as it may sound, fans would rather the team sink or swim with Flacco, then do either with Boller or Smith.

    That’s because they’ve already seen enough sinking and not enough swimming with Boller.

    I don’t get why they wouldn’t want to see Troy, I’d rather have him then Kyle and Flacco’s a bit too new for right now.
