    Re: Interesting take on the Ravens from an active NFL player



    Wasn't it Jason Witten who once commented about how he couldn't understand why Joe Flacco didn't get more credit for the Ravens' success?
    "When questioned, the Elders explained that they were in search of magical powers. However, they're actually searching for the whereabouts of a certain ring. This ring is a legendary treasure that long ago was known to exist"

    FTFY. IIRC the Ravens played the NFCE in Joe's first year as well as the past season, QED.
    Anyway, good read, found myself wanting more.

    Thanks for sharing.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    Not surprised about the perspective on Ray...and even Joe.
    Ray reaches out to tons of guys throughout the week. Heaps praise upon those who had great games, those coming back from injury, young guys just getting started, etc. Reasons why I think he's one of the greatest leaders in the history of sports.
    Joe's pretty much "unhateable" in my mind. Too "aw shuckish" and even keeled.

    NFC east, recognizable, offensive player, the QB question, some one pleasant to talk to...Desean Jackson, Jason Witten or Miles Austin, I say.

    Tough to not show respect for Ray Lewis. Great players show up in the game to make game altering plays. Ray hasdone this many times personally to stop a score, cause a turnover, or go one on one with a player that wanted to score, but Ray had different plans. I could see him as another Joe Erhman who played defense for the Baltimore colts and turned to religon to help others. Also White from Green Bay.
    Joe Flacco has played quietly, while winning, and only recently,when asked, did he say h e considered himself good. He was laughed at by the media and subjected to analizing by the talking heads. Hell, some said he needed to prove it.Then he backed up what he said by having an NFL record postseason.
    Ravens organization is one of the best, if not the best in the NFL. Ravens owner, GM, headcoach, and players have consistently done what no other team has in the last 5 years. Playing Ravens football is more then just a saying, it's the teams way in giving their all and never give up until the game has ended.
    At this time, the only dis respect would be from the some of the 9ers and their HC. Oh yea, the yearly Raven haters, but that's what keeps them happy. LOL

    He said NFC, not NFC east. Could also be the 49 ers but lets respect his wishes for privacy. Good stuff ASB. Thanks and enjoy the rest of your trip.

    I realized he said NFC, but we only played East teams before the SB, and I just don't think he would have asked the QB question to a 49er. Could be wrong of course.

    I think the insinuation was this player had seen Flacco play multiple times, and the only NFC East clubs we've played multiple times (note NOT counting preseason) are the NFC East clubs (2008 and 2012) and the 49ers (2011 and 2013 SB). Important to note, if you go with preseason, expands to a couple more teams (Falcons, Lions, Rams, etc)

    So, since we aren't going to be able to guess it anyway...

    Can't be Witten because he's married. OP said he was with his girlfriend.

    My money is on Miles Austin.

    "I asked if he'd rather play with Joe than with his QB and he just laughed."

    LOL

    Apparently I'm not the only one that thought Cowboys as soon as I read that line.

    It could also be any player from an AFC team the Ravens played in the last five years, and this guy has switched teams and is now playing in the NFC. Just because the guy said Joe has improved since the last time he saw him doesn't mean the guy is still playing on the same team. Players do move around.

    Thanks for sharing! This story is up there with AirFlacco's stories.

    I'm with everyone that thinks it has to be at least someone fairly recognisable. Cowboys and eagles are great guesses IMO.
