CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Ravens' passing attack might not be flashy, but it proved effective Saturday night. Methodically driving the Ravens downfield, Joe Flacco threw for 247 yards and a touchdown in a 17-13 victory over the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium. In the most extensive action for their starters this preseason, the Ravens (3-0 this preseason) pushed their strong running game off to the side and quieted those clamoring for another wide receiver - at least for one night.

When Joe Flacco lines up under center this week at training camp, the Ravens quarterback will be staring at something bigger than a blitzing Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker. It'll be the mounting expectations from fans, news media, coaches and teammates. He is no longer the small-school rookie who continually surprised everyone on the big stage. He is perhaps the most critical piece on a team that sees itself as a Super Bowl contender. But the increased heat doesn't seem to faze Joe Cool.

It's the kind of beginning that can start a love affair between a quarterback and a city. The Ravens' rookie quarterback made his NFL debut yesterday, and it couldn't have been scripted much better. The former University of Delaware star and product of Voorhees, N.J., ran for one touchdown and threw a block for another. He managed the game well - running a no-huddle offense and completing 15 of 29 passes for 129 yards. He had no turnovers as the Ravens opened the 2008 season with a 17-10 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium.

Apparently, the Ravens' preseason emphasis on throwing the ball in just about every possible situation was not just a passing fancy. Joe Flacco came out flinging on Sunday, and the Ravens rang up their biggest offensive performance - in terms of total yardage - since the franchise moved to Baltimore. Flacco set career highs in passing attempts (43), passing yardage (307) and touchdown passes (3). The Ravens piled up 501 yards and put up 38 points. I suppose you have to consider the competition, but the Kansas City Chiefs came to play and simply ran into a Ravens offense that had too many ways to move the ball.

J oe Flacco looked like he had just been in a street fight. This was minutes after the Ravens' 17-15 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, with M&T Bank Stadium emptying the way a funeral service empties. Flacco had a nasty cut on one forearm and a dark knot forming on his forehead. But as he addressed the media, you sensed that most of the pain the Ravens quarterback felt was internal. "It's a game that we thought we could have won," he said softly.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh has given rookie first-round draft pick Joe Flacco the starting quarterback job for the rest of the season. It was previously unknown whether Troy Smith, a contender for the starting job in the preseason, would be able to compete with Flacco when Smith recovered from a tonsil infection. But Harbaugh said yesterday that Smith would remain the No. 3 quarterback this week and would be able to vie this season only for the backup job, which is held by Todd Bouman.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - He actually did say, "The same as anything else, like any other drive." Joe Flacco might have been describing some drive he conducted in a sandlot in South Jersey or against William and Mary in his junior year in college. But he was talking about the one last night, at the home of the team with the NFL's best record, in the final minutes of a tie game that took his Ravens one step away from the Super Bowl. The quarterback who should have been talking that way was in the other locker room at LP Field.

Ravens rookie quarterback Joe Flacco continues to make progress, but he should be the starter against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 7 only if Troy Smith and Kyle Boller aren't healthy enough to play. Flacco played with more confidence last night in the Ravens' 10-9 loss, and he made some strong throws downfield, but he is still not ready. When the preseason started, Flacco was mesmerized by the speed of the game and he couldn't even find his primary receiver. He is up to par on that now but has trouble finding his secondary receivers.

The Ravens officially signed first-round pick Michael Oher on Thursday to a five-year contract, a multimillion-dollar deal that represents as much of an investment in franchise quarterback Joe Flacco as the rookie out of Mississippi. The contract is valued at up to $13.8 million, with $7.8 million guaranteed, according to an NFL source. When the Ravens take the field today for their first full-team practice of training camp, the 6-foot-4, 310-pound Oher is expected to line up as the team's right tackle, becoming the final piece of the Flacco Protection Plan.

Ravens cornerback Samari Rolle has restructured his contract and is cleared to play for the 2008 season. Rolle missed 10 games in 2007 because of seizures from epilepsy, as doctors worked to find the right medication to control them. But Rolle says he has a clean bill of health, and his contract has been restructured around his playing time and conditions related to epilepsy. Rolle has three years remaining on his deal. "Basically, if I play, I'm under the original conditions of my contract," Rolle said.
