Every weekday through April 25, the day before the first round of the NFL draft, The Sun will examine where the Ravens stand at each position, the likelihood that they will address that spot early in the draft and some of the prospects that they may consider. Today, we'll examine the quarterback position: Current quarterbacks under contract : Joe Flacco, Tyrod Taylor Chances that the Ravens draft a QB in first three rounds : None. Though there was plenty written about the prospect of adding a veteran backup to Flacco last year, the Ravens went all season with two active quarterbacks on their roster.

TAMPA, FLA. - Inside the locker room late Sunday afternoon, Ravens outside linebacker Pernell McPhee had a blunt take on the defense's rough treatment of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon. “He's going to be pretty sore,” McPhee said while smiling at his handiwork, which included one sack. During the Ravens' 48-17 win at Raymond James Stadium, the defense sacked Glennon a season-high five times and hit him 15 times. The amount of sacks equaled their previous season total entering Sunday's game.

Jim Caldwell is adjusting to his new job as the Ravens quarterbacks coach. After 10 years with the Indianapolis Colts, the last three as head coach, it means working with someone other than Peyton Manning. "I'm not necessarily putting my stamp on it, obviously I'm trying to do my job and doing it well, that's the key," Caldwell said Tuesday after the first day of a three-day minicamp in Owings Mills. "Part of that is learning the system and certainly being able to apply the system and teach the system.

Salisbury's 37-34 overtime upset of then-No. 6 St. John Fisher last Saturday was punctuated by senior fullback J.D. Hook's 16-yard touchdown run. But the running game has been powering the offense all season. The Sea Gulls (2-2 overall and 1-1 in the Empire 8 Athletic Conference) have averaged 289.8 rushing yards thus far, seventh-best in Division III. They compiled 312 rushing yards against a Cardinals defense that had surrendered an average of 288.7 total yards prior to Saturday's contest.

The Indianapolis Colts' Andrew Luck is one of three rookie quarterbacks in the NFL playoffs this season. Historically, the Ravens have played well against teams with first-year passers leading the offense. Rookie quarterbacks are 2-6 - and winless in the playoffs - against the Ravens since John Harbaugh became their coach before the 2008 season. “I can't tell you any secrets, but we've got a little niche going,” defensive tackle Arthur Jones said. “We definitely have something going that you'll see on Sunday.

The NFL is a quarterback-driven league, especially in the playoffs. Scan the list of Super Bowl champions from the past decade and you'll see names like Brady, Brees, Manning, Manning and Roethlisberger -- and Johnson, but pay no attention to that guy (sorry, Brad). You can argue that you need an elite quarterback to win a title, but you can also argue that QBs don't become elite until they win one. Chicken, meet egg. Egg, meet chicken. Those elite quarterbacks will be tough to knock out of the playoffs.

The AFC North is starting to become a great division for quarterback play. Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton made a name for himself as a rookie last season, and Cleveland quarterback Brandon Weeden was impressive Thursday night, completing 25 of 52 passes for 320 yards and a touchdown. If the Browns had better receivers and players who could hold onto the ball, they might have upset the Ravens. Before the game, the Browns had dropped 11 passes in the first three games and they added at least another three or four Thursday night.  This Weeden kid played well and showed a lot of poise. Combined with Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger and the Ravens' Joe Flacco, there could be some good shootouts coming up.

Three days after he confirmed that offensive coordinator Cam Cameron will be retained, Ravens coach John Harbaugh gave his offense -- and Joe Flacco -- an additional voice, hiring Jim Caldwell as the team's quarterbacks coach. Caldwell, who was fired two weeks ago as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts after the completion of a 2-14 campaign, has been a quarterback coach for 15 seasons, most recently for Peyton Manning and the Colts from 2002 to 2008. "After spending considerable time with Jim over the last week, we think he will be an excellent fit with our team, coaching the quarterbacks and helping with our offense," Harbaugh said.

The Ravens named Jim Zorn as their quarterbacks coach Saturday, the most intriguing and high-profile hire by coach John Harbaugh. Zorn, 56, was fired by Washington Redskins on Jan. 4 after a disastrous second season as their head coach. The Ravens, though, were overwhelmed by his experience: 11 seasons as an NFL quarterback, 11 seasons as a respected NFL quarterbacks coach and a familiarity with their offense. "That's a great resume for us," Harbaugh said. Zorn's primary goal is to continue the development of Joe Flacco into an elite franchise quarterback.

The Ravens fired quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn on Thursday and immediately expanded offensive coordinator Cam Cameron's responsibilities with quarterbacks. Zorn's release came after a seven-hour meeting this week with Cameron and coach John Harbaugh in which they questioned him about Joe Flacco's development this season, a league source said. Instead of hiring a new quarterbacks coach, Harbaugh decided that Cameron will have more hands-on duties with the quarterbacks. "We've talked about this since the end of the season, and we believe this will help improve our offense," Harbaugh said.

Redshirt junior quarterback Moses Skillon made a brief appearance in Morgan State's 24-9 victory at Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference foe Florida A&M last Saturday, playing on one series in the third quarter and another in the fourth. But coach Lee Hull said Tuesday that redshirt senior Robert Council is still the starter for the Bears (3-3 overall and 2-1 in the league). “Robert's our quarterback,” Hull said during his weekly conference call organized by the MEAC. “We're going to ride with Robert for the whole season.

Of the 12 Johns Hopkins players who have caught passes thus far, more than half of them are wide receivers. In fact, the top four in receptions and yards are wideouts. But in just four games, sophomores Quinn Donaldson and Bradley Munday have emerged as senior quarterback Braden Anderson's favorite targets. The 6-foot, 190-pound Donaldson leads the No. 10 Blue Jays (4-0 overall and 3-0 in the Centennial Conference) in catches (18), yards (301) and receiving touchdowns (three)

Maryland has yet to make a decision on whether quarterback C.J. Brown will play against No. 20 Ohio State on Saturday. However, Brown has been practicing this week and has looked good in practice, according to sources. Brown suffered a sprained left wrist during the Terrapins' win over Indiana last week. Brown has completed 57 percent of his passes for 996 yards and seven touchdowns with three interceptions. He leads Maryland (4-1) with 266 rushing yards and five TDs. If Brown does not play, Maryland will turn to backup quarterback Caleb Rowe , who was 12 of 18 for 198 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions after replacing Brown against the Hoosiers.

Joe Cool has become Comfortable Joe. Throughout the years, there is one picture of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco etched in the minds of every fan. It's the one where Flacco sits on the bench after a failed series with a blank look on his face. He talks to no one, and doesn't even look at game photos. As teammates walk by, Flacco continues to stare into the abyss. That doesn't happen any longer. Because of a new coordinator, position coach, blocking scheme and running game, Flacco's completion numbers and passing yards are up and his interceptions and sack totals are down.

COLLEGE PARK - When he's healthy, Braxton Miller is a star, a dynamic and multidimensional threat at quarterback and one of the top offensive weapons in the country. But even without Miller, who suffered a season-ending shoulder injury during preseason practice, Ohio State's offense is still gaining a lot of yards and scoring a lot of points in recent weeks. The play of Miller's replacement, redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, is one of the primary reasons why. Slowing Barrett down and trying to force the young quarterback into mistakes will be key for Maryland heading into Saturday's game against No. 20 Ohio State at Byrd Stadium.

Terps coach Randy Edsall did not say whether he expects Brown to be available for Maryland's game vs. No. 22 Ohio State Saturday in College Park.

When Maryland Crab Bowl officials set out to finalize the Baltimore roster for Monday's second annual senior all-star football game against Washington, they faced a problem they had never seen before: too many quarterbacks. They were looking at six potential Division I quarterbacks for three roster spots. Not great for them but certainly great for local fans, who, this fall, saw probably the best collection of high school quarterbacks ever to play in the Baltimore area at the same time.

When Jacksonville Jaguars rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert stands under center Monday, he'll be confronting one of the NFL's elite defenses and a trend that suggests that he's in for an extremely long night. One of the defining traits of the Ravens' defense has been a tendency to batter and befuddle young quarterbacks. The Ravens are 6-0 in the John Harbaugh era against first- or second-year starting quarterbacks, and they were last beaten by a rookie signal-caller Oct. 21, 2007, when Trent Edwards led the Buffalo Bills to a 19-14 win. "You don't want any quarterback to do well, but I think we're built in such a way that it's hard to recognize what we're doing," Harbaugh said when asked about the challenge young quarterbacks face when they play the Ravens.

"I feel better," Flacco said after practice. "Just a little virus, and [I] didn't want to get the whole team sick and get something running through here. ... It was definitely different not being out there. It was good that we had a long week coming off Thursday night's game.

COLLEGE PARK -- For Maryland, Saturday's game at Syracuse is a chance to get back on track after last week's loss to West Virginia and an opportunity to move to 3-1 heading into Big Ten play. But for Terps coach Randy Edsall , it is also a return to his alma mater. Edsall was a quarterback at Syracuse from 1976-79. He then began his coaching career at Syracuse as a graduate assistant 1980 and spent 11 seasons on the Orange's staff before moving on to Boston College in 1991.
