Ravens Q&A, Joe Flacco makes history, and McGahee joins the five for 5,000 club

November 11, 2008 |

Time for another Tuesday edition of Ravens question and answers blog. Send me your questions regarding the Ravens and I will answer them for you.


– Joe Flacco made a little history on Sunday, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. He became the first rookie quarterback in 60 years to start and win four consecutive games with his team scoring at least 27 points in all four wins. Last rookie quarterback to do so was Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Lujack for the Bears in 1948.

– Willis McGahee joined an elite group on Sunday according to the Elias Sports Bureau also. With the 112 yds rushing on Sunday, McGahee went over the 5,000 yard mark for his career(5,035). He is the fifth University of Miami player to reach that mark in the NFL. He joins Chuck Foreman, Ottis Anderson, Edgerrin james, and Clinton Portis. That is the most 5,000 yard rushers from any school tying Auburn, Florida, Penn State, and Syracuse.

-Antonio Pierce does a weekly call in to the Francesa on the Fan show on WFAN in New York every Monday. Towards the end of the interview, Francesa ask Pierce about the Ravens being a possible trap game. Pierce was not having any of the trap talk against the Ravens and went out of his way to sing the praises of Ray Lewis and the defense.  Scroll down to the last audio clip of the Inside the Audio vault to hear his comments. Pierce did come up with a new nickname for Flacco by calling him Joe “AFLAC” Flacco.

– Be sure to call in today during the Bob Haynie Show when Ray Bachman and myself will fill in for Bob today. We can talk Ravens, NFL, anything else on your mind.
