As the Brett Favre sweepstakes begins, the Ravens opened camp with Boller, Troy Smith and Flacco battling for the #1 spot. Every time I watch Boller with that short arm toss, my stomach crawls. Look for Troy Smith to emerge as #1 and the Ravens to show no interest in #4 (Favre).
Though he has relinquished his role as Off Coordinator, Ralph had plenty to say about his offense for the upcoming year–“Obviously, [we want to answer] who’s the starting quarterback. From that standpoint, it’s not like we’re going to play somebody who hasn’t played. Probably Josh Portis has the least amount of experience and he played as a freshman for Florida. I think Jordan Steffyhas come in and played in some big games. He was injured last year, and that hurt his development. Chris Turner played some phenomenal games last year and beat two top-10 teams. When I look at the quarterbacks, the biggest concern I have is do they have the experience because that’s the only way they learn. But our guys have experience, so I think that’s another position we have depth at. I’m optimistic about it.
“I think we have a chance to have a good football team. We have two new running backs, but Da’Rel Scott played last year and showed what he can do. He’s a big play-potential guy. We haven’t had a guy who could go all the way probably since (former Maryland running backs) Chris Downs and Bruce Perry, and this guy can go all the way. Morgan Green has been a guy that’s been around, and he’s hungry to play. I like our offensive line. We have more offensive linemen in our program than we’ve ever had.
The Orioles pitching continues to implode as they dropped a 10-8 decision to Toronto. Gregg Olsen has become almost an afterthought as his era climbed to 6.31 last night. Melvin Mora continued his torrid post all star game pace going 4 for 5 with 5 rbi. Look for closer GeorgeSherrill to be traded in the next week, probably for a AAA shortstop prospect.
