Guess I'll be watching the Ravens this year...

Our guy Joe Flacco was picked in first round by the Baltimore Ravens

Some pundits think that Joe Flacco went a little high in the draft at #18, 1st Rnd. However, I think the Ravens are being a bit strategic here. Lots of football Fans in the NE MD, N DE, S PA region were hard-core Colts fans back when they were based in Baltimore. I don't think the Ravens have ever been able to quite garner the kind of loyal fan base that the old Colts had here. Maybe, just maybe, if Joe can make an impact in Baltimore, the Ravens might get a plus-up on their fan base. I'd love to see Flacco fill the shoes of little old UofD's past NFL QB star, Rich Gannon. We will see...
