Baltimore Ravens first quarter grades

The Baltimore Ravens had a bye week Sunday, now they continue to get ready to face the Houston Texans. Here is the first quarter report card for the Ravens, as the Ravens stand 3-1 a quarter through the season. This will be quicker than the average report card because I will talk about it in more detail in this weeks video blog.

Quarterback– Joe Flacco has been rather inconsistent. I think we might have expected too much from him, he is dealing with five new receivers. Two great games, two bad games. Grade B-

Running backs– This group has been great when the offensive line has opened holes. It is a differenct story when they do not. Grade B+

Receivers– They have shown flashes of greatness. This group will take the longest time to develop. So far it has been hit or miss. Ed Dickson and Torrey Smith need to practice with Flacco more. Grade B

Offensive Line– This group has struggled with injuries all season. Ben Grubbs has been out for the past three weeks. They are letting Flacco get hit way too many times. Grade C-

Defensive Line– This group has been dominate. Haloti Ngata is showing why he is worth the big bucks. Grade A+++

Linebackers– This group has been a staple of the Ravens since they came into the league in 1996. Terrell Suggs has been dominate rushing the passer. Ray Lewis continues to play well despite his age. Grade B+

Secondary– Cary Williams has been a good surprise. Ed Reed continues to make quarterbacks worry about where he is on the field. Grade B+

Special Teams– Surprisingly one of the weaker positions on the Ravens. Billy Cundiff and Sam Koch have been solid but the return game has been missing. The coverage teams also need to improve. Grade C

Coaching– They have been solid all season. I will never complain about the Ravens coaching staff. The front office has also been making great personal moves. Grade A
