Following the progress of Blue Hens around the NFL. Joe Flacco QB – Baltimore Ravens The Joe Show is looking a little mediocre going into the playoffs.  Flacco did enough to win against the Bengals.  He needs to step things up this weekend or the season could come to a close early. Flacco’s ho-hum numbers: 14-of-19 125 yds, 0 tds, 1 int, 69.0 qb rating Mike “pops” Adams DB –…

Following the progress of Blue Hens around the NFL. Joe Flacco QB – Baltimore Ravens The inept Browns offense meant that The Joe Show did not need many fireworks, if any, did get the W.  The Baltimore D took care of business after the first Cleveland score. Flacco’s ho-hum numbers: 12-of-19 102 yds, 2 tds, 1 ints, 90.2 qb rating Mike “pops” Adams DB – Cleveland Browns Adams had to…

Following the progress of Blue Hens around the NFL. Joe Flacco QB – Baltimore Ravens Joe did not need to be Superman on Sunday, the guy with the cape on was RB Ray Rice.  Rice did what he wanted with the Saints defense.  Flacco passed enough to keep New Orleans guessing.  Ravens got another W, but again, they made it interesting in the 2nd half. Flacco’s enough-to-win numbers: 10-of-20 172…

Following the progress of Blue Hens around the NFL. Joe Flacco QB – Baltimore Ravens Joe could have used a bit more of a ground game on MNF to keep the Texans from creeping back into the fray. But they managed to walk away with the W.  Baltimore is kinda crawling into the playoffs, not really scaring anyone. Flacco’s respectable numbers: 22-of-33 235 yds, 2 tds, 0 ints, 107.5 qb…
