PLAYERS: Joe Flacco
TEAMS: Baltimore Ravens
The Baltimore Ravens signed Joe Flacco to a six-year, $120 million contract this past offseason.

That was not the case on Sunday, as the Ravens ran 12 plays from the wildcat formation in […]

Joe Flacco not a fan of Ravens’ Wildcat offense

The Ravens debuted a new offensive wrinkle on Sunday, utilizing the Wildcat attack with backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor under center and starter Joe Flacco split out wide. Let's just say the $120.6 million man isn't a fan of the formation. "It's good and fun for a little bit. But that's about it," Flacco said, via NFL.com. Taylor took five snaps, rushing...

Joe Flacco Not Enthused About Lining Up at WR

I noticed this when I watched their game yesterday. Flacco was not happy when he had to split out wide and Tyrod Taylor took snaps from Pistol and Wildcat.

He was honest with his feelings about it. “I want to line up behind center,” Flacco said after the Ravens’ 19-3 win over theNew...

Joe Flacco Says Wildcat Makes Ravens ‘Look High School,’ Team Tweets Quarterback’s Knock on Offense

It’s been said many times, but the Ravens’ Twitter account is one strange entity. Joe Flacco said he doesn’t like the “wildcat” looks that offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell has been throwing out on the field recently that remove Flacco from under center and shift him out to wide receiver. Flacco said the wildcat makes the Ravens “look high school.” Apparently whoever...

Big Ben Has Great Record vs. Flacco

Big Ben has a lot of decorations in his 9-year career. He has two Super Bowl rings, a pretty good career winning percentage (68%), an even better career playoff winning percentage (71%--that's almost 3 out of 4), and some very good numbers against certain franchises overall. His 19-1 record vs. the Browns is quite ridiculous. But there's one decoration that Ben has...

Joe Flacco Says Ravens Don’t Look like a NFL Team Running Wildcat Formation

Ravens' Flacco lashes out against wildcat offense

Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco hates his team's use of the wildcat formation, and Tuesday he let everyone know just how much.

Joe Flacco: Wildcat makes Ravens 'look like a high school offense'

Out of desperation the Ravens turned to the wildcat on Sunday, throwing Tyrod Taylor under center for a few snaps. It wasn't very effective and it doesn't make much sense, frankly. Joe Flacco, for one, hates it. The Ravens actual quarterback said he has a disdain for the wildcat because it makes the Ravens "look like a high school offense." "I don't like...

Flacco blasts Ravens for using Wildcat

The defending Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens have struggled in 2013, at the moment they’re 5-6 and frustration is starting to boil over, especially with quarterback Joe Flacco.

Extra wrinkle in the Steelers-Ravens game on Thanksgiving night--- Joe Flacco does not like the ...

I get why Jim Caldwelll and John Harbaugh want to insert Tyrod Taylor as a wildcat option in the Ravens offense--- mainly because almost nothing is happening in the Ravens' running game between the tackles. Joe Flacco may see it as an "insult" to his overall command of the offense. But the reality is the Ravens' offensive line is broken and undermanned. It has...

The Wind Cries "Hail" Mary...Ravens 19, Jets 3...

Winds gusting to 35 MPH, temperatures at 25-30 degrees in the shadows of M&T Bank Stadium... it was only fitting that Joe Flacco took advantage of his last possession going with the wind in the 3rd quarter to try to put the hammer down on the resilient New York Jets. Leading 12-3 at the time in a crazy game where not only the Jets were running a wildcat with Josh Cribbs but...
