Despite only losing their last three games, quarterback Joe Flacco says the team feels as though they are 0-14 (Credit: AP Photo) After losing three straight games to the Steelers, Redskins and Broncos, some players on the Baltimore Ravens are feeling low. While the team is still 9-5 and has clinched a playoff spot, quarterback Joe Flacco does not feel like celebrating. Flacco actually feels as though the team has not won a game all season. “We’re a 9-5 football team, and it feels like we’re 0-14 right now. But that’s just the feeling that you have right after a game like this,” Flacco said. Despite being down about the three game skid, Flacco believes the team can right the ship and start winning, perhaps all the way to the Super Bowl. “We believe we’re pretty stand-up guys, tough guys, guys with character,” Flacco said. “We’re going to be able to look at ourselves in the mirror when this thing is all said and done and honestly say that we are those type of guys or that we’re not those type of guys. I believe that we are, and you’re going to be able to see that over the next six, seven weeks, however long we have left. In order to get through this, we have to go home and look in the mirror, first of all, and work as one to get better and win football games. I believe that’s the kind of people we are, and that’s the kind of guys we have and the kind of coaches we have. It’s going to take toughness to get yourself up, pull yourself in there and do the work you need to do in order to give yourself the best chance of winning on Sunday.”   The post Joe Flacco: Ravens are 9-5 and we feel like 0-14 appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
