Harbaugh Not Worried About Flacco’s Early Picks in Camp

Is Ravens 2nd year QB Joe Flacco in a bit of a sophomore slump? Coach Harbaugh seems not phased by it if that is the case:

Over the past few days of practice, though, Joe Flacco has gotten visibly angry at himself with a few choice curse words. He has tossed five to six interceptions with strong safety Dawan Landry swooping in on a regular basis to pick off the ball. Flacco has thrown off his back foot and off-balance at times, a departure from his usually sound fundamentals and mechanics. The Ravens aren’t worried, though, about Flacco following a strong rookie season where he helped lead the team to the AFC championship game. “Well, it’s training camp,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “I think the point is that we’re throwing a lot of stuff at him. We don’t build our installs around building a guy’s confidence. We just try to throw everything at guys from Day One, and we don’t care how good a side looks or how bad a side looks or if a guy has a good day or a bad day. “We think it all makes him better because we’re going to try to improve from one day to the next. So, we want to put as much pressure on Joe as we can just like all the guys. If he throws picks, he’s going to learn from them. If he makes good throws, the defense is going to learn from that. So, we just challenge him every day.”
