Joe Flacco put together one of the best playoff runs a quarterback has ever constructed this past winter. Flacco is now entering the 6th year of his career, and is now expected to take on a leadership role.
“You’re the leader now, like it or not,” said Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti to Joe Flacco during Friday night’s Super Bowl XLVII ring celebration.
Flacco has done a lot in his five years in the NFL. He’s been to the playoffs every single year of his career, and last season he finally captured the Lombardi trophy.
Flacco commented on Bisciotti’s message:
“It was pretty cool. Steve is an awesome dude, a great owner and this is a great organization. You can see how special of a night this is and how over-the-top they went for it. I think that just says a lot about him and obviously I’m honored that he would bring me up.”

The Baltimore Ravens have lost several of their leaders to free agency, trade and retirement this offseason.

That’s why Ravens owner [...]
Baltimore enters 2013 as the defending Superbowl Champions. Unfortunately for the Ravens, winning the title came at a price as they lost several key players in the off-season, through free agency, trade and retirement.

Now that the traditional visit to the White House is out of the way, the one last bit of business in dealing with winning it all is the yearly oversized gaudy Super Bowl ring distribution.
