It's a good problem to have.
What's certain is that Joe Flacco is their starter. But the roles RGIII – who has NFL starter experience – and rookie Lamar Jackson – who becomes a threat when hitting the gas pedal – will have on gameday is to be determined.
Ahead of their Week 1 matchup vs. the Buffalo Bills, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg had tight lips on their plan.
"Everybody is preparing hard," Mornhinweg said.
C'mon, Marty. Give us a little hint.
"You know I'm not going there," he said with a smile on whether it's a conversation he'll have with Harbaugh and how much input he'll have on the decision.
"We'll see how that goes. Yes, yes, yes to all those things. Very good questions."
Harbaugh wasn't any more vocal than his O.C..
"It won't be any more than three. It won't be any less than two," Harbaugh said Monday.
"We'll see. I really don't know. Hey. it's day-to-day. Any quarterback will tell you, any player, [that] you're one play away. You're one play away from being the guy. Those guys have to prepare just that way."
It would be a shame to not see a pair of Heisman Trophy winners put to good use on a weekly basis. RGIII finished the preseason 27 for 41 for 243 yards and two touchdowns while Jackson went 34 for 68 for 408 yards and three touchdowns. The Ravens have played around with having both Flacco and Jackson on the field at the same time, but if that will be atop of their playbook remains a mystery. Harbaugh even hinted at getting RGIII in the multi-quarterback mix as well.
"That's something that we can kind of do the same chemistry with all three of our guys – one way or another – and be creative about it somehow. That's what our coaches try to do."
What we were able to get out of Mornhinweg is how healthy and strong Flacco has looked in training camp, noting it's the healthiest he's seen his QB in years. I guess we shouldn't complain about knowing the status of our starter compared to our backups.
