Brock Osweiler will start the preseason as the Browns’ starting quarterback.
At this stage in the evaluation process of our quarterbacks, we are going to have Brock start the preseason opener against the Saints on Thursday night, coach Hue Jackson said Monday in a news release. A lot goes into our evaluation but it’s always going to be about efficiently and effectively running the offense.
After spending the better part of a decade in the NFL’s upper echelon, it’s strange to see the Ravens wandering in the wilderness like they have in the past few years. Newsome is one of the best GMs in the game and Harbaugh remains a top-notch head coach, so one has to think the Ravens’ slump won’t be lasting much longer.
The big question for 2017 is whether the Ravens have done enough to get past the Steelers, who are hard at work rebuilding the Steel Curtain and still have an explosive offense. Even the Cincinnati Bengals look improved after investing into a speedier attack in the offseason. This division remains as deep and fiercely competitive as ever, so the Ravens can ill-afford any slipups no matter how minor.
If Baltimore manages to survive its division on top, then there’s no telling how far the team can go in January. The 2015 Denver Broncos provided the blueprint for an elite defense carrying an average offense to the Super Bowl, and Cheap Dan Marino Jerseys the Ravens are clearly trying to emulate that model. But first, they need their offense (and Flacco in particular) to rise back up to an acceptable level before they can think Cheap Custom Hockey Jerseys about selling playoff tickets again.
