The next two weeks are the last chance for anyone involved in the NFL to squeeze in any vacation, before the long grind of the season begins.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco’s going to have a little extra time off.

The Joe Flacco Passing Academy, which was originally scheduled for today and tomorrow, has been cancelled according to Ravens officials.

They cited “unresolved student-athlete compliance and NFL guideline details,” according to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times.

Flacco was going to be there, along with backup Tyrod Taylor, offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell. Now, they’ll all have the weekend off, giving Flacco the chance to rest what could be the strongest arm in the league.

    Haha. I can see why they canceled it. Sounds like a camp where young kids are taught how to suck at quarterback and then say they are the best.

    Hmmm… I bet Trent Dilfer had to cancel his QB academy too… Bet the Mannings didn’t. Wonder why??

    I don’t get why the media dislikes Flacco so much. As easy as you ended this story with a sarcastic remark about his arm strength, you could have taken a more classy approach and ended it with “now he has an extra weekend to spend with his new baby”.

    Seems none of the kids would publicly profess that Joe Flacco is one of the NFL’s greatest QBs.

    No kid in their right mind would want this guy trying to teach them how to play QB. Their blind fathers must have forced any kids to go to this camp.

    Then again, maybe the real reason it was cancelled is because there were no interested parties enrolling in the camp?

    Either way, the Ravens need to move on from this guy sooner rather than later.
