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.
