Joe Flacco was a guest on Thursday’s “Dan Patrick Show,” and he attempted to clarify some of the comments he made leading up to the “Monday Night Football” game against the Houston Texans. The MNF crew reported that Flacco told them “he is an elite quarterback.” That assertion has been scrutinized both locally and nationally, as people got a little miffed at Flacco seemingly putting himself in the same category as a Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, or Drew Brees.
Flacco says that, basically, he was just annoyed with the way the MNF guys were all up in his business about how he can play better.
“Ron [Jaworski] and [Jon] Gruden were putting it on me, and I didn’t feel like dealing with that in a production interview…it got under my skin a little bit.”
Joe says that they asked him the same question twice, and that he was trying to get out of the meeting and go to dinner.
I can’t blame Joe here. Good for him for telling those talking head dipshits what they wanted to hear so they would shut up. His main point is that he feels like he’s playing pretty well of late, and giving his team a chance to win. No arguments here.
