Here is a list of questions I would ask Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, given a few minutes to interview him:

1. Rookies always talk about adjusting to the speed of the NFL. At what point last season do you think the game slowed down for you?

2. How valuable was the experience of starting from game one last year?

3. What steps are you taking to prepare for this season to avoid a sophomore slump?

4. How would you rate your individual performance last year?

5. The Ravens didn't go out and get a receiver in free agency. How do you feel about the receiving corps?

6. Last year, the Ravens came within a game of the Super Bowl.  How much pressure does that place on you going into this year?

7. Do you think that having so much success last year makes it harder to stay grounded this year?

8. As a rookie, how did you come in and gain the support of a largely veteran team?

9.  What is your favorite aspect of being an NFL quarterback?

10. How does it feel knowing during a given season, you don't have to play the Baltimore defense in an actual game?
