Maybe Delaware is the new Quarterback U.
When Joe Flacco takes the field with the Baltimore Ravens against San Francisco, he'll be the second former Blue Hens quarterback to start a Super Bowl. Rich Gannon was the first with Oakland 10 years ago.
That's more than powerhouses USC, Texas, Oklahoma and Florida combined. It's one more than Miami, Michigan, Tennessee, Penn State, Florida State, Syracuse, Nebraska and Pitt.
Stanford, UCLA, BYU, Maryland and Washington State also have two. Only Notre Dame, Alabama, Purdue and California have three.
Quite an impressive feat for a second-tier football college in the second-smallest state in the U.S.
It's a good thing Flacco didn't turn to baseball when he hoped or he may not have even made it to the NFL.
The story goes like this. After his junior season at Delaware, Flacco went to then-coach K.C. Keeler and told him he'd like to pitch for the Blue Hens' baseball team in the spring. Keeler and other coaches p...
BEST OF MAXIM
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is having one of the most prolific playoff runs in NFL history. His eight touchdown passes currently rank him third all-time for most touchdowns thrown in the postseason without an interception. Joe Montana (11) and Steve Young (9) both went on to win the Super Bowl as did Drew Brees, Troy Aikman and Phil Sims, all tied with Flacco at...
We already know Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco isn’t going anywhere and will be back in 2013 no matter what. It will come down to whether they can get an extension done before free agency begins in March. ESPN’s John Clayton says if Flacco gets hit with the franchise tag, the Ravens will owe him $14 million in 2013. He’s looking at making $20 million per season...
The 49ers, not the Ravens, are going to win the Super Bowl, so says Tecmo Bowl.
The folks who do modern-day simulations of NFL games using the classic video game plugged in the teams competing in Super Bowl XLVII. And bad news for Joe Flacco and the Ravens; they don’t claim the Lombardi Trophy.
It was, however, a tight game heading into the fourth, deadlocked at 17. But then the...
The Super Bowl is less than a week away, Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers will face off against Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens.
Until then enjoy photos of the 2013 NFL Pro Bowl Cheerleaders, these girls work hard and enjoy their time in Hawaii.
Baltimore Ravens’ quarterback Joe Flacco is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in 2013, but odds are the Ravens will use their franchise tag on Flacco for 2013.
There are two reasons for this prediction.
The first reason, the Ravens almost always wait to negotiate big contracts until after the season is over. Take defensive tackle Haloti Ngata who received the tag in...
With the Superbowl just over a week away, it's time for a little preview before we make our prediction for the big game this time next week!
The offensive performance of the Ravens is completely reliant on how well Joe Flacco can continue to play. We've seen the past few weeks that when he is playing with confidence and hitting his...
We are not Jim and John. Neither of us coach the Baltimore Ravens or the San Francisco 49ers.
We never played in the NFL. We live vicariously through players like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, Arian Foster and Adrian Peterson, Calvin Johnson and Andre Johnson, imagining every Sunday, placing ourselves in the cleats, pads and jerseys of the games greats, deriving an entire range...
The Baltimore Ravens have an opportunity to place the franchise tag on Joe Flacco this offseason. Every time the Ravens use the franchise tag on a player, that player usually signs a major contract by the end of the offseason. Terrell Suggs in 2009, Haloti Ngata in 2011 and Ray Rice in 2012 are proof of that prediction having a strong chance of becoming a reality in 2013. What will...
No NFL fan would argue that today’s league is a passer’s league, a quarterback’s league. And with each new Super Bowl winning quarterback, the media quickly anoints that player into the “elite” status.But the favored quarterback to win this year’s Super Bowl has not even started a full season in the NFL. After starting Quarterback Alex Smith suffered a concussion in November...
Once the Baltimore Ravens knocked off the Denver Broncos and the possibility of a Peyton Manning versus Tom Brady AFC Championship was eliminated, the next best option for the Super Bowl immediately became a Baltimore-San Francisco match-up. In the AFC Championships second half Joe Flacco looked very Tom Brady-esque. Anquan Boldin shed years off his [...]
Eli is better than Peyton. Trent Dilfer? He’s better than Dan Marino.Every year the media fuels the foolish fire claiming wining a Super Bowl makes a quarterback elite. Once a quarterback wins, BOOM! He goes from a good quarterback to magically this amazing elite quarterback. One game, whether the Super Bowl or not does not define a quarterback’s eliteness.I would take Peyton...
You can talk all you want about "teams of destiny", but it all boils down to one essential fact: winning teams usually out-work and out-practice their opponents.
Ray Rice's "Hey-Diddle-Diddle" 4th-and-29 conversion, Joe Flacco's 70-yard miracle bomb to Jacoby Jones with 30 seconds left in regulation in Denver... these sorts of things seem to reek...
