Flacco is a JERK! Asks teammates to cheat on last play of the SB

Quote:

NFL Films' "Sound FX" program caught the drama for posterity.

"Are we gonna win this?" Flacco asked Ravens head coach John Harbaugh from the sideline.

"Yeah -- the game's over if we cover this kick," Harbaugh responded.

"We don't make it easy, do we?" Flacco posited.

"No, we don't," Harbaugh said.

"If he starts to break it, go tackle him," Flacco then said to Pitta.

"Really?"

"I don't know ... I mean ... what else can they ... they might be able to give them a touchdown on that? I don't know," Flacco told Pitta.

Flacco, flush with enthusiasm over his new tackling tactic, then went around and tried to get other teammates on his side.

"Hey! If he breaks this ... if he busts it for some reason? Tackle him! Go tackle him," Flacco said to guard Marshal Yanda and center Matt Birk. "I don't know what the rule is on that, but..."

"Why don't you?" Yanda asked.

"I'm going to!"
Real upstanding guy right there!
Definitely MVP caliber ethics.

Seems like a smart play. He was not calling to injure the guy, just to stop him. Non-story.

The SB MVP asking his teammates to come off the bench and flagrantly foul a member of the opposing team--even saying that he himself was going to do it, just for the win. Even contemplating the legality of the action.

Non-story?
Really?

You play to win the game.

Again, he is not talking about injuring someone, just taking a penalty. It's no different than taking a delay of game penalty to allow more room for a punt, or to kill the clock.

And it would have been funny had he done it, then the refs award the 49ers the TD anyway.

If this is directed at me, you're incorrect.
I respect the guy's abilities. He got it done.

This sort of comment (Flacco's, not yours) is deplorable imo.

#1- Was the guy asking for his teammaes to HURT someone? NO. Non-story

#2- just like the 5 Ravens who held like a mo-fro on the safety- if its called, they can't award 2 safeties.

#3- they discussed it on NFL LIve on ESPN- Merril Hoge, the noted raven hater/Steeler lover, said "Its done all the time- everyone talks like this on the sideline" Darrren Sharper backed him up

Non-story. Get off your high moral horse.

Flacco is a moron who doesn't even know the rules.

Touchdown Awarded (Palpably Unfair Act)
When Referee determines a palpably unfair act deprived a team of a touchdown. (Example: Player comes off bench and tackles runner apparently en route to touchdown.)

Yeah, he's a moron all right.


You have no idea how many players don't know the rules...if they did, we wouldn't need referees, right? They could just call fouls themselves like in pick up bball?

Yeah, right.....

Aren't purposeful fouls used all the time in basketball?

I've seen balls superficially thrown to hit batters in baseball.

It's called tactical decisions.

I don't see this as anything other than doing what it takes to win. If this was Schaub, this would be celebrated by Texans fans.

What's the old saying, if you're not cheating your not trying? The 49ers had plenty of chances to win that game. Acting like the last play was bigger than it was is making mountains out of molehills.

That is a stupid and ridiculous argument.

I really wish he would have tackled the breakaway ball carrier. Then he would have PROVEN to the entire WORLD he is a moron, because only that type of person would think that A) tackling from the sideline was a loophole in the rules and B) if it was, we wouldn't see it all the time on kickoff returns for a touchdown.

FACT: Flacco is a MORON!

That is why he is a moron!
Not only would embarrass himself and his team, but they would lose the game anyway!

Hey I actually think this makes him smart. I didn't even know what the rule was but who would be hurt if he did it and the refs had to make a decision. I saw another article where the choices were a) award the TD or b) spot foul and a free play...FG attempt. I don't mind that he was thinking ahead and doing anything to win. People calling him a moron I guarantee had to look up the rule and are just bitter. Why be so angry about a guy who had a great run and who was trying to secure a victory. What? You mean football players aren't all Rhodes Scholars? Noooooooo. I've never seen so many people get upset over such pathetic stuff.

Flacco obviously hasn't heard of Tommy Lewis in the 1954 Cotton Bowl:

Marshall Yanda > Joe Flacco: "Why don't you?" Yanda asked.

Again, taking 5 seconds to think about it, if tackling from the sideline could give a competative advantage, like possibly getting a penalty and forcing them to kick or drive the ball, don't you think teams would have taken advantage of it by now??
