Quarterback hopes pattern continues against PatriotsSay this for Joe Flacco - and this certainly bodes well for the Ravens heading into their showdown with the New England Patriots Sunday in the AFC Championship game - the much-maligned quarterback has certainly been at his best in his team's biggest games this season.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco improved his postseason record to 5-3 after the team was able to pull out a 20-13 victory over the Houston Texans last Sunday, but he’s still looking for a break out performance in the playoffs. The fourth-year veteran didn’t get any help from his offensive line as he was sacked [...]
His feisty tone and rambling respect talk were gone. Only his Fu Manchu remained late Sunday, a reminder of what had been his little defiant streak.
Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had wanted to be regarded as a grown-ass man, like Brady and Rodgers. What he has to settle for is being the luckiest SOB in football, getting partial credit for what is actually the big-boy work of his...
Joe Flacco, the fourth-year quarterback of the Baltimore Ravens, has a habit of winning. He’s won 44 games in his first four seasons. For those of us that are mathematically challenged (I am), that’s 11 wins a season on average. Tough to beat, huh?Even with all those wins, there are still questions about Flacco.One thing in particular that got attention was from Ed Reed. Reed...
For all of his talent as a passer, and his very good regular season and post season records during his first four years in the NFL, Joe Flacco is not generally considered to be among the upper tier of quarterbacks in the NFL.
As good as his won/loss numbers may look, Flacco’s stats suggest to many that the Ravens win in spite of him more than they win because of him, with defense...
If Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco didn't have a Rodney Dangerfield complex before, he's likely to have...
BALTIMORE-January 16. – In the second quarter of the Ravens eventual defeat of the visiting Houston Texans it looked as if the Texans rookie head scratcher T.J. Yates was going to do it again. The Texans were moving the ball against one of the greatest defenses of all time and the Ravens offense was sputtering
Reed and Flacco spoke to clear the airRavens quarterback Joe Flacco admitted that he was initially “caught off guard” by teammate Ed Reed’s comments about him on a radio show, but he said today that the two have spoken since and it’s “not really that big of an issue.”
Ravens safety Ed Reed says Joe Flacco will have to be better if the Ravens are to beat the New England Patriots on Sunday and earn Baltimore's first Super Bowl berth since 2000.
Ed Reed has plenty of respect in the Ravens' locker room, and perhaps that's why he decided it was OK for him to call for better play from quarterback Joe Flacco and the offensive line with the Patriots on tap.
This week, we're going to do in-depth scouting reports on the two conference title games. First up: Pats/Ravens.
The Teams: The Baltimore Ravens vs. the New England Patriots
Records: 13-4 (Ravens), 14-3 (Pats)
The Line: Patriots by 7.5. The Ravens were favored by the exact same line last week. Peter King finds this WEIRD and INTERESTING.
The Coaches: Bill Belichick...
Houston Texans 13
Baltimore Ravens 20
This is another game that pretty much played out exactly as was predicted. The Ravens play pretty well when at home, while the Texans limped toward the end of the season with three straight losses before pulling out a victory last week against a Bengals team that may have been one of the only other teams in the playoffs with less momentum...
The final four quarterbacks left in the NFL playoffs have a clear line dividing them: those that have won a Super Bowl and those who haven’t. For the two that haven’t, Alex Smith and Joe Flacco, each has taken their fair share of criticism. Some is warranted and some of it is not. Obviously we can’t compare these two players to either Tom Brady or Eli Manning. There just isn’t...
We’ve reached the AFC and NFC Championship round, which leaves four starting quarterbacks left playing. Each guy is distinctly different, and each guy has a plethora of YouTube Tribute Videos.
So today my friends, we are going to be picking one of the many Tribute videos (preferably the most recent) for each quarterback and voting on whose is the best. For those of you in disbelief...
