From the people who have seen him, and reports which have been posted....  lots of encouraging talk about Flacco right now.

Yea, it’s good to hear. Doesn’t really mean anything except the health aspect of things but it’s better than hearing he looks bad I guess.

I met Joe last week and he looks thinner.  One of the Ravens fan liaison told us, that Joe has been at the Castle constantly during the off season.

That does not become news, but we hear silly BS crap about text messages and phone calls, until the story became identified for the crap that it was.

 

Just my two cents, but Joe seemed very upbeat on the field, constantly talking to Jackson, RG3, and Woodrum when they were on the sideline.  In addition, they were all communicating with the receivers, during the down time

The #NFL announces that the #Ravens will lose their final two OTA practices this week over an undisclosed violation of the offseason workout rules. Team and coach John Harbaugh have been fined as well.

Dumb. They were disciplined in 2016 for having rookies practice in pads. What now?

I know its relatively minor but the Harbaugh and the Ravens should not be the ones complaining about the Pats consistent bending/breaking of rules

So it was contact during non-contact passing portions of camp. I wonder if they were warned early on and it kept on happening? 

 

What a stupid thing to lose 2 days of OTA's over. This to me is a much bigger deal than Joe not hosting a passing BBQ. These are valuable minutes for an offense that needs to gel at every level.

It does not make it right, but I can see how the contact happens.  I wonder what constitutes the violation.  I saw bumping as the backs and receivers ran pattern, but no tackling. 

 

It is a shame to lose OTA's.  Agreed, these are far more important that playing catch in Joe's favorite park.

I just wonder if there were violations on Day 1 and they were warned and it continued. So they took the days away. If they weren't warned but weren't aware that it was in violation that'd annoy me more. Did his happen to any other team? Regardless, just a really stupid thing for this team...really really stupid.

John seems to put it on the rookies, which is weak, but I can see how it happens.

It's obviously a stupid and avoidable thing to have happen, but I wonder how ticky-tack the league is about contact. The statement seems to indicate it may have been related to DB drills...if a guy puts his hand on the receiver is that a violation? Probably by definition, but it's also not something that is worthy of the punishment.

I'll bet shit happens in every team's practice. Just a matter of who sees what.

The Ravens certainly are acting like they are being singled out. I have no idea why the league would do that. Unless it's the same veteran now that's complaining to the union that was before surrounding these violations and that they don't know who it is. 

 

I am curious if this happened to any other teams at all. But without knowing the exact infraction, it's pretty hard to say what is going on with what...

Both of those statements make it sound like some overzealous rookies trying to make an impact. No pun intended.

I mean, it's just dumb. Too dumb to even talk about. So ill stop.
