With the arrival of new quarterback coach Jim Caldwell, Joe Flacco is going to take his game to the next level.
Flacco was inconsistent last season.
At times he looked horrible, like against the New York Jets, where Flacco only completed 32.3 percent of his passes. Other times, though, he looked like an elite quarterback, including when he led a game-winning drive against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Now I know you are thinking, why is this year any different from the other years where we expected Flacco to step up?
Last season, Flacco did not have a quarterback coach. This year, he will have Caldwell coaching him. Caldwell has received a lot of praise around the NFL for his ability to work with quarterbacks. He comes in with a lot of experience working with quarterbacks, most notably working with Peyton Manning for 10 years.
Flacco is entering his fifth season in the NFL. He has proven he is a winner, having the most wins by any quarterback in NFL history in their first four seasons. With the Ravens in the process of giving him a new contract and the addition of Caldwell, Flacco is going to take his game to the next level to prove that he is worth every penny.
