    What happened to the Flacco passing camp?



    So be honest, who actually believe that Flacco would gather his receivers outside of the building to get some extra work in and build camaraderie? As silly as it sounds I did. Well now it's officially July 11 and the rookies (QBs also I believe) are reporting to training camp with the vets joining them next week. I think it's safe to say that the passing camp isn't happening.

    [The plans] are not for sure cemented, but Im going to be getting in touch with Mike [Crabtree], Willie [Snead] and Smoke [John Brown], Flacco said. I thought about doing something really close right now to minicamp, but with the work weve put in over the past four weeks, I want to get these guys a quick break before we actually get together. But its going to happen quickly because Ive got to be back here in, like, a week.

    Theres no doubt, Flacco said. That stuff is important. Well do it.


    I think sometimes those things are just as much or more about developing a relationship with those guys and developing that trust, Flacco said. I think when you can get that relationship going, thats going to help your football team out a ton.


    Riighttttt Joe Rightttttt.....

    There's Flacco and family, speeding down the road and passing camp :



    "Hey kids, wave to the Ravens receivers quick! Gee, I hope they have someone to throw them the football."

    Honestly, at this stage I just don't see the point in making a big deal about this passing camp business. Joe is ...well, Joe. We've all known it for years.

    Self-directed passing camp or not, he'll have to perform at a high level this year if he wants to continue playing football in Baltimore or anywhere else. If Joe gets off to a good start, no one will remember this passing camp business in October. And if he does poorly, we'll be calling for his head ...again, passing camp or no passing camp.

    He realized during mini camp that Jackson is so far behind him and a non threat that he doenst need to have it....


    In all actuality he will have it a few days before they have to report to camp. Makes sense to do it then while the rookies are at camp.

    Agreed......camp or no camp, when it comes to Flacco, it doesn't matter much. He's made his fame and fortune. It's just a job now. Rumor has it that when asked about passing camp he replied....."I can't. He plays for the Titans now".

    Flacco has always been one of the most frustrating players for me. We all see how good of a QB he is when he actually puts the effort in to be good, a la the 2012 playoff run and almost every other playoffs he has been part of. I truly think that if he was a harder worker the dude could have been an elite QB in this league, but he never consistently put that kind of effort into it. I will concede his supporting cast hasn't always been great, but that doesn't matter when it comes to the playoffs or even in the 2012 playoff run, as he seems to always turn it into another gear. I say it's because he works harder in those moments.

    whats the point of this passing camp? to get good chemistry, right?

    all reports were about how well he was clicking with Crab/Smoke/Snead/Moore already.

    better to than not, sure, but not really necessary either. It was already mentioned that it was completely dependent upon others availability. He was willing and had a week picked out that worked. We also dont know if they did or not, because its a private get together, theyre not going to alert the media about it. In other words, people are making a story where there really isnt any because their isnt anything else going on.

    I personally dont care, but I mean it's fair to call Flacco out because he did tell the media that it was going to happen.

    Regardless his days are numbered here unless he comes out on fire.
