Goodbye, Kyle Boller. Baltimore has probably seen the last of him, at least in a purple uniform. The team put Boller and his throwing shoulder on injured reserve yesterday and replaced him with journeyman Todd Bouman, 36. The news wasn't surprising, especially because Boller had been telling teammates for the past couple of days that he was finished for the 2008 season. But it goes beyond that in Baltimore. This is probably the end of the most disappointing, unfulfilled career in the Ravens' short history.

You don't need to trust me on this anymore. Ravens coach John Harbaugh has announced that Joe Flacco will be the starting quarterback for Sunday's regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals ... not that he had much choice in the matter. Troy Smith showed up for camp yesterday but has lost so much weight from his nasty bout with tonsillitis that he'll need more time to build up his strength. The jury remains out on Kyle Boller. The team will decide Friday whether to place him on injured reserve.

Rookie quarterback Joe Flacco was officially named the Ravens' season-opening starter yesterday, an announcement that seemed implausible just 10 days ago. Medical issues involving the Ravens' other quarterbacks - Troy Smith (tonsil infection) and Kyle Boller (shoulder) - vaulted Flacco from last in the quarterback race to the uncontested winner. "If anyone wrote this in a movie script, no one would believe it," John Harbaugh said. "The thing that is kind of exciting is that you couldn't envision this scenario.

Joe Flacco was the best quarterback at M&T Bank Stadium last night, outshining fellow rookie Matt Ryan. Whether Flacco has done enough to prove he is the best quarterback on the Ravens will be determined over the next week by coach John Harbaugh. In last night's 10-9 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, Flacco delivered a convincing argument why he should be the Ravens' season-opening starter. The 18th overall pick in this year's draft completed eight of 13 passes for 72 yards and showed increasing confidence in directing the offense.

When the Ravens play their preseason finale against the Atlanta Falcons tonight, the only definitive part of their quarterback battle is that Kyle Boller is temporarily out of it. Boller is suffering from a serious shoulder injury and will miss his second straight game because of it. The 2003 first-round pick had a magnetic resonance imaging this week and is scheduled to undergo more testing tomorrow. But Boller will not need surgery at this time, general manager Ozzie Newsome said yesterday.

The more the Ravens' 2008 profile comes into focus, the more menacing some of their potential problems appear. Clarity, in this case, is not necessarily becoming. Not when the quarterback conundrum refuses to go away. Not when an aging, injured defense can't get on, or off, the field. Not when there are more questions after two preseason games than there were after one. The unvarnished truth is first-year coach John Harbaugh has a team in transition, a team that has little margin for error and few players capable of rising above those errors.

Joe Flacco was 13 yards from sending the Baltimore metropolitan area into complete panic Saturday night. Had he managed to get the ball those final 13 yards into the end zone in the final four seconds of the preseason game at M&T Bank Stadium, overtime might have ensued - and the 10,000-plus who had stuck around that late only to watch Michael Phelps' final Olympic race on the stadium scoreboard would have been rooting for whomever won the coin toss,...

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - For almost a half, Kyle Boller almost turned me into a believer. I was about to forgive him for his five previous years of bad football. I was going to forgive him for his fumble nearly midway through the first quarter and give praise to new offensive coordinator Cam Cameron for possibly turning Boller around in a short time. And then reality set in. With 6 minutes, 38 seconds left in the first half, Boller didn't see New England Patriots linebacker Shawn Crable, who stepped in front of intended receiver Adam Bergen and picked off the pass.

Football Ravens@Patriots 7:30 p.m. [Ch. 11, MASN]: All that anticipation for the new NFL season finds some outlet tonight in the Ravens' first preseason game against the Patriots. Kyle Boller will get the start at quarterback, but Ravens fans will be watching until the scrubs come in for the fourth quarter to get a look at No. 1 draft pick Joe Flacco in action.

One of the many positive and exhilarating aspects of any NFL team's first preseason game is the opportunity for everybody to wildly exaggerate the outcome. Did I say "many"? Make that "only." Anyway, when the Ravens open the preseason tonight against the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass., never mind the madness that will ensue tomorrow morning. The overreaction to what Kyle Boller does won't even wait until he leaves the field for good. In fact, it might not wait until the second pass he throws or the second snap he takes.
