Baltimore Ravens franchise quarterback Joe Flacco remains out with a back injury, and it doesn’t look like the team is about to bring in Colin Kaepernick to attempt to save the day. So 2011 third-round pick and former Arkansas star Ryan Mallett had a big chance to prove something, anything, to the many naysayers Thursday night.
In fact, an extended run under center as Baltimore’s interim starter against the Washington Redskins was seen by many as Mallett’s last chance. He entered this preseason with a career completion rate of 55.0, touchdown-to-interception ratio of 7-to-10 and passer rating of 64.9 in 19 games with three different teams, and he wasn’t exactly putting on a show in camp, per ESPN’s Jamison Hensley.
And then he went out against the Redskins and completed only nine of 18 passes for 58 yards in two quarters.
For some reason, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh called that “winning football,” per Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun. But it’s hard to find anyone not employed by the team who thought Mallett played well.
Regardless of what Harbaugh says, Mallett might nearly be out of time.
