 Joe Flacco was called out by his own dad for being a boring person, but this story gets him some street credit for sure. He had a diabolic plan to save the Ravens’ bacon just in case San Francisco’s Ted Ginn broke free on the last play of Sunday’s game. Well, a diabolical and stupid plan. "If he starts to break it, go tackle him," Flacco told [tight end Dennis] Pitta, as caught by NFL Films microphones. "Really?" Pitta replied. Yeah, really. Flacco appeared to be stone serious. "I don't know," Flacco said. "I mean, what else … what could they … I don't know. They might be able to give him a touchdown on that, but I don't know." Flacco then went to his offensive linemen and told them the same thing. "Hey, if he breaks it, if he busts it for some reason, tackle him, go tackle him," Flacco said. "I don't know what the rule is on that, but…"   USA  He wanted to tackle him in the middle of the play???  Sounds like a movie to me.  Anyone seen the replacements recently?  Flacco has been the center of attention ever since the Super Bowl victory for the Baltimore Ravens, some have even called him the best QB in the league,  I'm going to call him an evil genius for this comment.  No way this wouldn't have worked right? Tackle him before he gets a touchdown and all they can do is throw a flag right??  Then they would have to run another play and score again.  Pure genius.
