Morning take: Can Flacco win Super Bowl?

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North: Morning take: Flacco is getting some heat for the Ravens not making it past the divisional round. Expectations will only increase in Baltimore as he matures.
Morning take: I think this is one of the most intriguing stories of the offseason, especially since this is out of character for Palmer. He is obviously fed up with Cincinnati's losing ways.
Morning take: Summers will try his luck elsewhere after two uneventful seasons with the Steelers. Any fullback isn't going to get much playing time in Pittsburgh’s offense, which prefers to run three-receiver sets.
Morning take: President Mike Holmgren and head coach Pat Shurmur will be focused primarily on implementing a new West Coast offense in Cleveland. So the defense is pretty much up to Dick Jauron, Ray Rhodes and their staff.
