    Funny thing is Unitas also won a Car in 1958, but traded it in for a station wagon for this wife and kids to use, true story. That shows what kind of guy Johnny was.

    Joe definitely looked like a giddy kid winning that car.

    Joe is becoming the John Unitas of the Ravens. It's eerie that he has all the qualities that Unitas displayed dealing with football and life. Baltimore has a QB that talks with his play and not his mouth. Possibility of Joe breaking the all time win record in a Qbs career is mind boggling. Those years of average Qbs in Ravens past history have been forgotten with Joe Flacco leading the offense. Still Wacko for Flacco!

    and while we're talking weird injuries. another favorite of mine is still the Jaguars punter.

Well, a couple players took some chops at it, and up comes Chris Hanson, the punter. He misses the stump and hits his foot, keeping him out for the remainder of the season. Couple years ago, John Harbaugh was using a sword and a shovel patch to signify hard workers and in the 2009-2010 playoffs in the locker room, he brought out a shovel and a sword to re-state it. Then quickly added "Be careful with that, it's a real sword". I believe within moments, Chad Steele or Kevin Byrne wisely decided to get it OUT of the locker room.

    I forgot about the Del Rio incident. The sword story is hilarious.

    I love this highlight so much. I've watched it several times. It's just pure, blue-collar joy. It's as real as you get. Joe had just achieved a lifetime dream and is rolling around on the ground screaming "Yesss!!!" while his teammates (who know they wouldn't be there without him) tackle him. Incredible.

    Joe said he was going to give it to his wife, since he won't fit in it. Although I could totally see him pulling a Unitas and trading it in for minivan with his growing family. Although with the upcoming payday he can probably afford a few cars at least.

    Can we keep using blue collar? I don't think we've said it enough in this thread

    Did anyone see the YouTube clip of him on the Letterman show, including the extra footage of him coming on the set and leaving it?

    It was moving quickly, but I'm pretty sure I saw him carrying the baby in one of those portable safety seats.

    I love that dude. We are so lucky.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    I don't know what you guys are talking about. Joe Flacco is as white collar as it gets. He's a surgeon out there. He's also a cold-blooded assassin, white-collar criminal.

    LOL - Joe's thinking a Stingray? WOW!!

    He knows he's getting a contract that will allow him to buy the entire freaking car company-lol.

    Kind of silly to still give cars to all these millionaires. The Shack had a car for every day of the week, a
    $100,000 car or more. He lived across the street from one of the Beach Boys who said he had guys
    washing them all every day.

    Joe will too.
