Flacco's passing game was out of sync throughout, which is no surprise considering his top two targets were couch surfing when training camp opened. Stokley and Clark padded their numbers against soft coverage in garbage time, but the eyeball tests showed two players struggling mightily to make plays in the twilight of their careers.
This is the first week of a long season. It's too early to throw in the towel on this aerial attack. The Ravens have unearthed a gem in undrafted rookie Marlon Brown, who flashed playmaking ability for the third consecutive week. If there's going to be a sustaining element to this offense, though, the featured players will have to be Ray Rice, Bernard Pierce, Torrey Smith and Brown, while the slow-moving trio of Stokley, Dickson and Clark falls by the wayside.
