Flacco Named Starter For Opener.
September 1, 2008Posted by on
It was only a few weeks ago that Joe Flacco was eliminated from the QB competition, but today John Harbaugh has officially named rookie QB Joe Flacco as the starter for the Ravens week one matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. In reality he didn’t have much choice with Kyle Boller going on IR and Troy Smith still fighting an illness. The Ravens added Casey Bramlet to their practice squad and Joey Harrington to their active roster, but neither is familiar enough with the offense to start against the Bengals.
