Two weeks ago, we got Phil Simms’ take on Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco . On Tuesday, former Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann gave 105.7 The Fan his two cents on Flacco. These interviews will continue to interest me until they start asking people like Bubby Brister and Steve DeBerg to break down Flacco. Theismann, who won a Super Bowl with the Redskins and was the NFL’s Most Valuable Player in 1983, believes Flacco is going to have a breakout season in 2011 -- and yes, he thinks there will be a season.

Joe Theismann has certain characteristics he looks for when evaluating any quarterback. Size. Arm strength. Accuracy. The ability to throw on the run. There are others. To Theismann, Maryland's Class of 2015 quarterback commit, Gage Shaffer from Ridgeley (W.Va.), has a lot of those characteristics. "He's one of most impressive young men I've seen,” said Theismann, who played quarterback for the Washington Redskins from 1974-85 and has been an NFL analyst 29 years since retiring.

CBS Sports made a good call Sunday in not showing a halftime replay of a gruesome injury to Louisville guard Kevin Ware. The injury took place in the first half of Louisville's Elite Eight matchup with Duke. But the network did show it in slow-motion replay while Ware lay on the court attended to by trainers and medical personnel. To its credit, the network had one of the game announcers warn viewers before they showed it. I saw the play live, and I did not notice Ware's fall.

Is the new "Monday Night Football" annoucning team an improvement? As long as nonstop commentary and lame jokes continue to be the trademark of "MNF" - to say nothing of every other football telecast - what difference does it make? That's why God, in his wisdom, invented the mute button. Joe Roman Baltimore Yes ... but only if Joe Theismann has laryngitis. Bob Barry Timonium No. Nobody is better than Al Michaels in football play-by-play, although Mike Tirico will be good. While Joe Theismann may be more polished than John Madden, he is not a better color guy. Tony Kornheiser is excellent on radio and "Pardon The Interruption," but a three-man booth does not work on "Monday Night Football."

You've gotta be tough to play football, and it's a good quality for football players in the restaurant business, too - as when the roof of Joe Theismann's Restaurant in Elkridge collapsed last year, closing the place for six months. Tucked next to a Best Western hotel near the site of the old Dorsey Speedway off U.S. 1, the business reopened last summer after nearly $800,000 in repairs, partner Vernon H. Grandgeorge said. "We wondered how business would be," Grandgeorge said, adding that customers came back, and everything worked out well.

Ready for the bellCoach Jerry Glanville of the Atlanta Falcons, noting his teahas outscored its foes, 84-28 in the first period, said: "We answer the bell. We come out like Mike Tyson."The problem is they get knocked out later on.

Thumbs up: Duane Starks came to practice in attack mode. The starting left cornerback hasn't shown effects of fracturing a finger two months ago. Yesterday, he broke up three passes and hassled receivers at the line. Thumbs down: Backup kicker Dan McGuire threw his helmet in disgust after missing three of four attempts after a not-so-heated battle with starter Matt Stover. McGuire couldn't convert from 36, 43 or 45 yards. Stover hit his last three tries. Helmet to helmet: Tempers seemed to rise with the temperature.

Whatever else you say about ESPN's first Monday night telecast of the regular season, it was obvious how much better a rapport Tony Kornheiser has with Ron Jaworski than he did with Joe Theismann. Yes, they yukked it up, but it didn't get in the way of Jaworski's points about the game, which he made without going on and on like the fellow in that chair last year. Earlier in the weekend: Dan Marino greeted the newest member of The NFL Today cast, Bill Cowher, by putting on a "spit shield" to protect him should the former coach launch into the kind of intense monologue that typified his sideline style.

The streets of the nation's capital erupted into a sea of burgundy and gold last night as thousands of football fans sang, screamed and honked their horns to celebrate the Washington Redskins' 37-24 Super Bowl win over the Buffalo Bills.Protected by his "Hogs" offensive line, quarterback Mark Rypien shredded the Bills' defense for 18 completions, 292 yards and two touchdowns -- earning Most Valuable Player honors -- while a tenacious Redskins defense frustrated Jim Kelly and the Bills' no-huddle offense.

Houston Texans quarterback T.J. Yates can't Tim Tebow the Ravens. He has some charisma but not the big play ability of Tebow, which is why the Houston Texans won't beat the Ravens here Sunday in an AFC divisional- playoff game. The Ravens and Texans are similar and have the same formula for winning, but Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has more experience, a bigger arm and more big play ability than Yates, a rookie who has started only six games. If this was Flacco versus Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers or New Orleans' Drew Brees, then those teams have the edge.

Prior to this season, the prevailing thought was that the Pittsburgh Steelers were the mountain that Joe Flacco had yet to conquer. That has obviously changed after the quarterback led the Ravens to their first regular-season sweep of the Steelers since 2006. But maybe the focus should have been on a different AFC North rival. In six career meetings against the Cincinnati Bengals — the Ravens' opponent this Sunday — Flacco has endured some of the poorest outings in his career.

Regardless of the countless power rankings, most agree that the Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Jets are the three best teams in the NFL. Barring injuries, all three will be major players in the postseason because they have good running games, strong defenses and blue-collar coaches with dominant personalities. But the one position that makes the Steelers the favorite is at quarterback, where they have a two-time Super Bowl champion in Ben Roethlisberger. The question is whether quarterbacks Joe Flacco of the Ravens and Mark Sanchez of the Jets can narrow the talent gap between now and the postseason?

Yesterday's death of Darryl Stingley, the former New England Patriots wide receiver who was paralyzed as a result of a brutal hit by the Oakland Raiders' Jack Tatum in a 1978 NFL preseason game, is a reminder that sports isn't always fun and games. Athletics often involves physical risk, and sometimes those tragic instances when the risk is realized remain hauntingly vivid. Here are a few: Herb Score (1957), Cleveland Indians pitcher: A hard-throwing phenom in the mid-1950s, Score was smashed in the face by a line drive off the bat of the New York Yankees' Gil McDougald.

It was a record-setting day the last time an NFL team from Baltimore played the Washington Redskins. It just wasn't the kind of record that Baltimore fans wanted to remember.The Redskins dominated the Baltimore Colts, 38-14, on Dec. 13, 1981, at RFK Stadium as Washington quarterback Joe Theismann passed for 339 yards and two touchdowns.It was a franchise-worst 14th consecutive loss for the Colts, who dropped to 1-14 on the season. In that game, the Colts also set an NFL record for most points allowed in a season (501)

As another wave of Joe Gibbs' offensive terror sweeps over the NFL this season, carrying the Washington Redskins to 7-0 heights, you are reminded of another team with tidal wave force.You are reminded of John Riggins slamming through openings created by the original Hogs, of Joe Theismann slinging touchdown pass after touchdown pass, of Joe Washington stutter-stepping his way through the heart of a defense.Remember the 1983 Redskins?It was probably the best of Gibbs' three Super Bowl teams, yet, ironically, it was the only one that didn't win its last game.
