Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco hasn’t been the same passer since winning a Super Bowl in 2013. Last season, he was dead-last in yards per attempt (5.9) and the Ravens offense suffered as a result. 

That’s why Baltimore drafted Louisville product Lamar Jackson in the first round of this year’s draft.

But Flacco doesn’t appear ready to give up his starting spot anytime soon. On Sunday, Ravens offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said Flacco has looked the best he has in years. 

Fantastic start today – he’s on it,” Mornhinweg said. “It looks like he’s moving and grooving better than he has in several years, and I suppose that’s because he’s healthy. He looks pretty good that way. You remember two years ago it was the knee, then the back and all these things. He really looks good.

“John [Harbaugh] and James [Urban] and the fellas set a plan for Joe, you know ramping it up into training camp, and set a plan individually for a lot of the veterans – and Joe is one of them.”

Flacco, 33, threw for 3,141 yards for 18 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 2017.
