    I love that quote from Joe. Good on ya mate!

    He makes a good point. $120 mil, 5 picks, he better stand up and take responsibility. Even though the O line should be horse whipped in public for the performance they put up.

    Well, he really threw three picks. Two were dropped passes tipped up into the air. Not much anyone can do about that. Also, he has poo around him right now with half his starting wideouts gone and the o-line being so bad there's no run game/play action.

    We've all technically seen him play worse than he did at Buffalo (Jets in Baltimore, Jags, Seahawks back when they sucked, 4 picks in Cincy), even if Buffalo gave a bad stat line. ... Just to play devil's advocate to anyone who'd place that loss squarely on him.

    That said, I like the quote. #eliteasfuck QBs take the heat.

    They've been beating Dalton like a rented mule all week too here in Rivertown. Pay no attention is the best thing a QB can do. One good game and all will be forgiven in both cases.

    J5 is a class act.

    Its a shame that a pass right in Dickson's hands goes against Flacco's stats.

    I wasn't putting the loss squarely on Joe. In fact my post suggested that if anyone deserves credit for the loss, it's the O line. I like that he did take responsibility for the loss. That is what he is supposed to now. When the offense doesn't play well Joe needs to be a stand up guy and put it on his shoulders. Even if it's not his fault. He is the new face of the franchise and this team will only go as far as he takes them.

    Why do we need to make a thread about everything Joe says? To me he's always been pretty much the same guy from 2008, he's just more of a leader now and a much better player with a significant amount of extra bulk. His personality is no different. He probably said things like this hundreds of times back in say 2009 without us realizing.

Its not like you guys are paying tax money that goes to Flacco's account, you buy tickets to go watch him win the franchise football games, just like you all were before he earned the contract.

    I understand the whole salary cap thing, but that's a whole different subject. Just because Joe is earning all that money, we shouldn't all of a sudden start taking everything he says through the media literally (even though a lot of us did before the contract anyway). If Flacco throws 5 picks in a game, sure, start a thread, it absolutely needs to be talked about, just like how bad the offensive line is, or how Rice is average less than 3 yards a carry, but why all of a sudden do we need to start threads of nothing more than "players speak"?

    Now that the face of the franchise has retired, Joe's quotes will garner more attention. To us, this sounds like something he would have said three years ago. To the rest of the nation, it is new, because he was always overshadowed by Ray Lewis and Ed Reed. Plus, the vast majority of the time, at least in the media, the defense favored Rice and the idea of running the football. That really didn't change until the 2011 AFC Championship Game.

    You're right. It's just a number, but a damn big number. And whether he, or you, or I like it, Joe is going to be under the microscope unlike any time before he signed that deal. It goes with the turf. Also, I don't see how we are "all of the sudden" taking what he says through the media literally. But when his words are spoken in a public forum how else should we take them? It's not like we heard anything second hand.

    The OP is giving Joe props for standing up and saying he didn't play well and accepting responsibility. What's wrong with that?

    Any one who expects Flacco to not say what he thinks, has not followed Flacco's career. He has had bad days that he created and has had bad days because of his supporting cast around him. Ravens football has always tested the Baltimore fans and will continue to do so. It's going to be a crazy year in the Afc and Nfc, things have started out wildly. Joe will do his part and do the best job he can, count on it. If he gets sacked or hit too many times, he will throw 5 interceptions to receivers who have not stepped up in a good way. At the end of Flacco's career, people will just shake their heads at what he accomplished. The talking heads though will still take their shots at Flacco because he will not produce fantasy numbers or have a exciting regular season performance. But, he will win more then lose and make those postseason appearances.
