Flacco doesn’t want to be compared to anyone

At a time when it’s popular not to accept a quarterback for who he is but to find some other quarterback to whom he compares, it makes sense to pose the question to the player who may be the subject of the comparison.

That’s what Erik Kuselias did during Thursday’s edition of Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network, when interviewing Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.

“I don’t need to be compared to any body,” Flacco said.  “I go out there, I play my style of football and we just got to go out there and continue to win football games.  I don’t really care who I’m compared to, it’s just for you guys to talk about and for me to go play and whatever will happen, happens.”

That’s the right approach.  To see if he used the right approach in response to questions regarding his contract talks, the impact of the loss of linebacker Ray Lewis for the balance of the season, and the team leaders who’ll step up in his absence, click the box below.

If you do, you’ll also see that there was an unexpected cameo appearance during the Flacco interview.

    Joe really bristles when the comments about Lurch from the Addams Family come up.

    I wouldn’t want to be compared to Matt Cassel either.

    Joe Flaccid, on 11/18, you will be compared to a bum.

    Kevin Garnett, the two biggest jerks in professional sports. At least KG has two eye brows though.

    Joe later welcomed a comparison to Anthony Davis…

    Steeler fans fail to recognize the fact that Torrey Smith and Flacco have owned them as of late. Must be tough when your a .500 team who was swept and tebowd out of the playoffs last year. Another sweep coming up, cheers!

    I wouldn’t want to be compared to anyone either if I was the QB of a team that won a SB with Trent Dilfer as QB….

    I mean if he could do it…

    Just sayin.

    Because you aren’t comparable to many NFL QBs.

  12. Kidman says: Nov 2, 2012 2:37 PM

    That works out since nobody wants to be compared to Joe Flacco either.

    flacco quits at pitt and goes small time in delaware cause he don’t want to compete…. says it all….

  14. steelernator says: Nov 2, 2012 2:51 PM

    When is “as of late”? If you want to rest on old laurels, then the Steelers won 6 Super Bowls, how many have the Ravens won, of course excluding the 2 you are still celebrating from last year?

    “Tebowed”? At least the Steelers didn’t get “Vick-timized” this year by the Eagles like the Ravens did, “as of late” in 2012 of course.

    11/18 can’t get here fast enough.

    the Bert comparisons are inevitable

    Its true that in the overall meetings between these two the steelers have dominated, but since flacco has been the starter the games have been alot closer and more competitive. I think both of their offenses have potential to be explosive but they lack consistency. Where both of these teams are in trouble is the defensive side of the ball. IMHO neither team has the defense to beat the texans.

    And to the poster who said flacco shyed away from competition, get your facts straight! He wanted to compete for it but there was no competition as the coach had already made his decision. Joe went to delaware and the rest is history. I dont get all the hate for the man. He is a 5th year player with a great record in the reg season and even some wins in the post season. He doesnt have to throw for 400 yards every week, he just has to win and he has done that.
