Sounds to me like Flacco has rabbit ears. The correct response would be....

"We are winning, thats all that matters."

I heard a stat today that the Ravens are 12-0 when they run the ball more than 20 times and 0-4 when they run it less than that.

I am hoping between Flacco wanting to have his elite QB moment and Cam Cameron trying to be the "smartest man in the room" the Ravens might get away from the game plan that made them successful all year.

Don't worry. I have a feeling that Kubiak will choose to run it at least one more time than they do.

Doesn't sound very confident to me. :kitten:

I hope my words don't come back and bite me in the arse, LOL!

Flacco says that Pats don't run the ball, but they averaged only 1 less rushing attempt than the Ravens did for the regular season.

The Packers averaged 4 less rushing attempts per game.

The Texans were tied for #1 with the Broncos with the most rushing attempts per game.

But besides all that, running the ball doesn't make you any less of a QB. It's about what you do when you do get your opportunities to throw it.

If you watch the video you would know that he was being sarcastic. Take nothing from those quotes.

I think it's pretty ovbious without watching the video that he was being sarcastic.

He has so much pressure he's gonna fold.

This is the reason why I said he didn't sound very confident in himself.

They have all the pressure in the world. If we lose, its almost ecpected. We have overcome alot and we couldn't beat a good team on the road with a 3rd string QB. They lose, and they completly blew it. They are supposed to win this game.

I saw the interview. It was tongue in cheek and the reporters all laughed.

I have seen Flacco fold if you pressure him so that is just what Wade should do.

We need to pound the hell out of this dude. Shake his confidence, beat the hell out of him. Force him into making mistakes. He's the type of QB where **** compounds. He doesn't have too much mental fortitude. Get him making a mistake or two and it will steamroll. Next thing you know you'll have a situation where they can only score 10 points if they're lucky.

Getting to this guy is the biggest key to the game. Make sure he can't get the ball to Rice.
