Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma was suspended for the entire 2012 season, free agent Anthony Hargrove for eight games, Saints defensive end Will Smith for four games and Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita three games.
Fujita and Hargrove played for the Saints during the program's duration, from 2009 to 2011, under former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who was suspended indefinitely by the NFL. The suspensions of Williams, coach Sean Payton (season-long), general manager Mickey Loomis (eight games) and assistant head coach Joe Vitt (six games) weren't involved in this appeals process.
The NFL Players Association noted its support of the overturned player suspensions in a statement: "We are pleased that the appeals panel ruled unanimously to lift the players' suspensions immediately. We will continue to vigorously protect the rights of all players."
Caldwell brings a lot of credibility to Baltimore, and Flacco already is benefitting from his steady-as-she-goes coaching style. Harbaugh told me his fifth-year quarterback is having his best camp as a Raven "by a significant margin,'' with quicker reads and decisions, faster footwork, better on-field posture, and more accuracy than he has ever shown. If Flacco's head is troubled by the lack of a long-term contract extension in the final year of his rookie deal, he certainly hasn't shown it thus far in camp. It sounds like Caldwell gets at least partial credit for that.
Looking At The Schedule
Baltimore was my pick to win the AFC Championship last preseason, but I don't foresee reprising that one. Not after checking out the Ravens' brutal 2012 schedule. For starters, they play just two home games in the stretch of Weeks 5-12, or one each in the season's middle two months of October and November. Baltimore also draws its two annual AFC North grudge matches against the Steelers in a three-game span (Weeks 11 and 13), gets the Manning brothers back to back in Weeks 15 (Denver visits) and 16 (as do the Giants), and has challenging trips to Philadelphia (Week 2), Houston (Week 7) and San Diego (Week 12) sprinkled in. And let's not forget about the Week 3 AFC title-game rematch with New England, which may be the highlight of the Ravens' entire home schedule.
Kolb got off to an inauspicious start Sunday night in the annual Pro Football Hall of Fame Game. On his first pass of the game, he threw an interception on a pass intended for Andre Roberts. That was the first of three series Kolb played in the game, and by no means the most disastrous of them. With six and a half minutes left in the first quarter, Kolb was tackled by Sedrick Ellis on his own goal line, a hit that ended his night with bruised ribs and a bruised diaphragm. It also complicated the Cardinals' quarterback picture.
Oh, and to add one more sour note to it, Kolb was injured just as he completed his first pass of the game.
John Skelton had a much better outing, though a brief one. He picked up a pair of plays in relief of Kolb before leading the Cardinals on a 90-yard, 14-play touchdown drive against the Saints' first team defense. Skelton finished his work with 32 passing yards on four completions in six attempts.
The tide clearly turned in Skelton's favor who looked decisive making quick passes to move his team downfield on their lone touchdown drive.
It was only one preseason game after less than a week in pads, so the Cardinals have plenty of time to sort out the mess under center. Kolb already had his detractors; the Cardinals tried to woo Peyton Manning in the spring. A bigger concern might be his injury. A serious concussion ended his season in 2011, and even though his latest injury is typically more of a day-to-day thing, it does nothing to help Kolb shake the label of an injury-prone player still trying to live up to his potential.
