FACT CHECK: Mike Preston's Post-Cleveland Column

I have decided to periodically do a fact-check post on Mike Preston, a writer for the Baltimore Sun who covers the Ravens, as well as others.  I'll focus on Preston, whose tenor seems to be oppositional at best, bent on finding negativity at worst, when it comes to the Ravens.

Super Breakdowns: The BOMB Heard 'Round the League

In today's Super Breakdown, we take a look at the 56-yard TD pass from Joe Flacco to Jacoby "JAM" Jones from Super Bowl XLVII.  How did Jones get so wide?  Why did Flacco underthrow him?  How did Flacco's motion set the play up?  Check out the film study after the jump!

Super Breakdowns: Flacco to Q = Huge

In the second of the Super Breakdown series, I look at and diagram with the coaches film from two different angles of Joe Flacco's 3rd down completion to Anquan Boldin in the 4th quarter.  What did Joe see?  Was this his only option?  Answers after the jump!
