When the Ravens used a first-round pick in the 2008 NFL draft to select Joe Flacco, little did anybody know that he would become the only starting quarterback in NFL history to reach the playoffs in each of his first four seasons. Four teams took a similar path in April. The Indianapolis Colts and Washington Redskins chose Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III first and second in the draft, while the Miami Dolphins picked Ryan Tannehill at No. 8 and the Cleveland Browns selected Brandon Weeden at No. 22. Coincidentally or not, none of those teams advanced to last year's postseason.

It would be funny if it weren't such a sad statement about the short attention span of sports fans and the public at large. Joe Flacco has taken the Ravens to the playoffs five times in six years, reached the AFC title game three times and was named Super Bowl Most Valuable Player just 16 months ago, and he's still catching flak for not being enough of a leader. Didn't we already go through this with Cal Ripken? The latest rap on Joe Cool is that he should have set up his own passing camp a month or so ago so that he could bond with his new receivers and get an early start building some offensive chemistry while coordinator Gary Kubiak installs his new system.

Every Monday morning, the day after my favorite day of the week but still hours before that week's slate of games officially wraps up with “Monday Night Football,” I will bring you my weekly premature NFL power rankings. Why Monday? Because who wants to wait until Tuesday or Wednesday for power rankings? Why 11 teams? I don't really have a good answer for that one. I've always liked odd numbers. What am I basing them on? Who my gut tells me are the toughest teams to beat that week.

Last weekend, the Buffalo Bills spoiled what I thought would be a big week for Torrey Smith, Ed Dickson and the Ravens. Sure, Smith delivered, but Dickson and the Ravens dropped the ball in an error-filled 23-20 loss. The Ravens travel to Miami to play the Dolphins this weekend, and while I picked them to lose on the road again, I do foresee some things going in their favor. 1. THE RAVENS WILL FINALLY SCORE IN THE FIRST: The Ravens haven't found the end zone or split the uprights in a first quarter since fullback Vonta Leach caught a two-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Joe Flacco midway through the first quarter in Week 1. That means the offense has since played nearly a full game's worth of first-quarter action without putting up a single point.

Given that the Ravens have made a trade in the first round of the draft five times in the past seven years, most fans are well aware there is a chance the team could trade out of the first round again Thursday night. A deep but unspectacular class of quarterbacks may mean the Ravens receive a few trade calls for pick No. 32. “The phone lines are open,” Ravens assistant general manager Eric DeCosta declared last week. Last year, Indianapolis picked Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the first overall pick and Washington picked Baylor's Robert Griffin III. Miami also took a quarterback, Ryan Tannehill of Texas A&M, in the top 10. Some have said Tannehill would have been the top quarterback in this class had he waited a year to declare.

In eager anticipation of the 2013 NFL season, Baltimore Sun blogger and reporter Matt Vensel will take a daily look at one of the 13 opponents on the Ravens' regular-season schedule. Today is the Miami Dolphins . After traveling to Buffalo in Week 4, the Ravens will continue their tour of the AFC East in Week 5 when they take their talents to South Beach to take on the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins were an aggressive team this offseason, re-signing wide receiver Brian Hartline and throwing big bucks at former Ravens inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and former Pittsburgh Steelers wide-out Mike Wallace.

Nationally, the TV audience for the first night of the NFL draft was down a bit from last year, but Baltimore tuned in in a big way. ESPN's round one coverage earned a 4.6 overnight rating Thursday, according to preliminary Nielsen figures supplied by the channel. That's the third highest-rated overnight since round one began airing on Thursday in 2010. That year's telecast earned a 5.4 rating, while last year's Thursday night coverage scored a 4.8. Locally, Baltimore finished fourth among metered markets behind Buffalo, New Orleans and Kansas City.

The Cleveland Browns kept coming in waves at Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, blitzing him on nearly half of his dropbacks last Sunday and also harassing him when they rushed just four of their front seven. The Browns sacked him four times, hit him three additional times and hurried him on a handful of other plays. It was just one game, but new Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton's fingerprints were easy to identify. Horton, who worked wonders with the Arizona Cardinals defense last season, came to Cleveland this past offseason after Arizona chose to hire Bruce Arians as its head coach over Horton, a favorite of Cardinals players.

Each week, Baltimore Sun reporters Aaron Wilson and Matt Vensel look back at the Ravens' previous game and that of their next opponent. Saints 38, Dolphins 17 Strategy: The Dolphins, in their variation of the West Coast offense, rely on short drops and quick passes to get the ball to their receivers in the passing game. They used a lot of three-wide-receiver sets with mobile second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill in the shotgun or pistol formation against the Saints on Monday night, especially as they tried to play catch-up after halftime.
