Bengals Will Face Joe Flacco in Opener


The Baltimore Ravens will open the season against Cincinnati with Joe Flacco as the starting QB. This is both good and bad news for the Cincinnati club. Good news since they face a raw rook in their first outing, bad news since the team specializes in making nobody QBs look like Joe Montana. But as a Bengals fan, I’ll take what I can get.

In related Baltimore news, they have also signed Joey Harrington. My sympathies to Ravens fans.

Update: Geoff Hobson reports that Rudi Johnson is headed to Detroit and Willie Anderson has multiple teams interested in him, including the Ravens.

Update 2: Rudi is a Lion. Muckraker Mike says that the teams after Big Willie are Baltimore, Chicago and San Diego, and that Harrington to Baltimore isn’t a done deal yet.
