Joe Flacco’s mechanics have plenty of admirers

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco looks to pass against the New England Patriots during the NFL AFC Championship football game in Foxborough Reuters

One of the biggest plays of the Ravens season had a lot to do with the arm strength of quarterback Joe Flacco.

A quarterback with less of a rocket might not have been able to fire the ball 55 yards to Jacoby Jones over the top of the Broncos defense in the AFC playoffs and a miss on that play would have meant a different Super Bowl champion in New Orleans. It was such a good throw that Ron Jaworski of ESPN called it one of the best he’s ever seen and says he doesn’t think he’s seen another quarterback who could make it.

That’s a rather hyperbolic statement that’s hard to prove right or wrong, but Flacco’s arm strength is certainly impressive. Matt Vensel of the Baltimore Sun spoke to Jaworski, former Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and others to find out why Flacco’s able to air the ball out so effectively. Some of it is natural, but Flacco’s mechanics were cited each and every time as an essential part of the package.

“Joe has the God-given talent to throw the football,” Jaworski said. “Probably what people don’t look at is the complete set of mechanics that it takes to throw the football with that kind of velocity. He sticks his cleats into the ground. He drives off his back foot. He’s on balance, for the most part, on almost every throw. … When Joe has a clean pocket, his mechanics are outstanding.”

Cameron said Flacco had one of the two best pre-draft workouts he’s ever seenBen Roethlisberger had the other — and that the team did almost nothing to tweak his delivery once they selected him in the first round of the 2008 draft. A meeting with Tom House, a former baseball pitcher turned throwing coach who has tutored Tom Brady and others, led House to rave about Flacco’s throwing motion and there’s more where all of that came from in Vensel’s exploration of Flacco’s game.

It’s an interesting look at the balance between natural talent and the way players must work to maximize it as well as an encouraging one for Ravens fans that want to see more of last season’s Flacco in the years to come.

    Flacco would be #4 on the dominant team’s depth chart in MD behind Griffin, Cousins and White. #BurgundyandGoldStandard

    Here comes the haters with the “jump” ball comments.

    For those that wish to forget just remember it’s SuperBowl MVP Joe Flacco.

  5. jwcarlson says: Jul 1, 2013 10:53 AM

    Flacco throws lollipops.

  6. walkinginthewasteland says: Jul 1, 2013 10:54 AM

    Flacco has had plenty of time to develop his deep ball. Nearly 1/4 of their offensive production is the patented “chuck it deep, and try to get a PI call” play. Accompanied with Brady-esque levels of histrionics when there is no flag.

  7. opinevain says: Jul 1, 2013 10:55 AM

    Flacco has improved every year. His mechanics were stellar last year, but most non-Raven fans dont watch to see. I bet your QB couldn’t make that throw in Denver in the blistering cold!

  8. craniator says: Jul 1, 2013 10:57 AM

    Ryan Tannehill can make that throw.

  9. humb0lt says: Jul 1, 2013 10:57 AM

    Being 6-6 helps when you need to fire the ball 55 yards.

  10. overratedsteelerhater says: Jul 1, 2013 11:04 AM

    ALLS HE DOES IS WIN!! he doesn’t have to run
    all around waiting for a busted knee.pocket passer thats how you win..

  11. opinevain says: Jul 1, 2013 11:05 AM

    Most of the Top QB’s stand fairly tall. Manning, 6’5, Brady 6’4-5, Big Ben, 6’6

    Jaworski and hyperbole.

    no one tells the Redskins what to do.

  14. Steeley McBeam says: Jul 1, 2013 11:13 AM

    Lets just ignore the fact that Rahim Moore made the worst defensive play in the history of the NFL on that 55 yard TD. Yup, all Flacco.

  15. lovefootball4life says: Jul 1, 2013 11:13 AM

    Love it. Now lets hear all the folks tell us how Jaws doesn’t know what he’s talking about…or Cameron or House for that matter…or the draft bust from Ozzie.

  16. ridingwithnohandlebars says: Jul 1, 2013 11:21 AM

    One of my favorite things about Flacco is his trust in his receivers. Not just the “jump balls” that he threw to Boldin in the playoffs, but when a receiver has a drop that could be considered costly he is not afraid to go back to them.

    This was seen in the end of the game in Pittsburgh in 2011 when Torrey Smith could not bring in a TD pass on the final drive only to catch one a few plays later, as well as in the divisional playoff game against Denver when Jacoby Jones dropped a pass on 3rd down of what appeared at the time to be the Ravens final drive of the season, until they got one more chance.

  17. ballinmore says: Jul 1, 2013 11:23 AM

    I love all the talk of how lucky Joe was that his receivers caught all these jump balls last year. How many of the past super bowl’s were based solely on luck? Eli has two rings that were two lucky plays away from being zero. The Steelers had a fair amount of luck on their side when the refs decided they needed to win against Seattle and lucky Santonio could get his feet down against Arizona. Pats were lucky they didn’t get caught cheating before they won titles, and the list goes on.

    Luck goes far but you still have to put your team in position to be in the big one. Joe does that.

  18. partmachine says: Jul 1, 2013 11:26 AM

    1st -Broncos were lucky to even have the chance to defend Jacoby Jones at the end of regulation. Whole game matters.

    2nd -All of Flacco’s big throws during the post-season, that constantly get labeled as air balls or receiver bailouts were out of the pocket and under duress. Getting chased and still hit his guy 60 yards away. I will take it.

    Ravens are better in 2013.

    Speaking of the “worst defensive play in the history of the NFL,” where does Tebow’s 80 yard OT pass to Demaryius Thomas rank? Just curious.

  20. baltimoresnativeson says: Jul 1, 2013 11:31 AM

    When is the last time Big Ben beat Joe? January 2011 I think? Man that’s a long time ago.

  22. ralphtherealravenfan says: Jul 1, 2013 11:44 AM

    That Denver throw was one of the best I’ve ever seen in my life. It wasn’t a frozen rope like Aaron Rodger’s delivery, but it was just as effective, if not more so in those conditions. It was a bomb shot. I mean, it just kept going, and going, and going, right over top of the defense. Great postseason theater.

  23. bmoreravens1012013 says: Jul 1, 2013 11:55 AM

    I’ll take the opinion of people who actually played or coached at the highest levels than fans from other teams who will never admit Joe is a great qb regardless of what he does anyway. Jaws is one of -if not the best-qb analysts in the country, so I’d you don’t acknowledge his analysis, then your just ignorant or not sold. Ok, well then there’s Mr. House, who the Golden Boy himself seeks for help and fine tuning with mechanics and overall football expertise. Both are highly regarded within NFL circles to my understanding , so if that’s not good enough then just hate on haters.

  26. crownofthehelmet says: Jul 1, 2013 12:14 PM

    Reading the headline, this has to be about a classic car Joe owns or something. No way they can be referring to his qb mechanics.

    Ok that was actually funny. Made me go back and read the title again. I’m sure his landscapers have admirers too.

    But yes it was about this throwing mechanics. There is a video on a drill done back in college competing against Henne, Ryan, and a couple who didn’t make it. Flacco threw 74 yards, next closest was Henne at 60 some followed by Ryan in the low 60s.

  32. Joemontanaflacco says: Jul 1, 2013 1:46 PM

    “Reading the headline, this has to be about a classic car Joe owns or something. No way they can be referring to his qb mechanics.”

    Please see the Ravens 2012-13 post season. 11 touchdowns, no interceptions. Matched only by Joe Montana.

    Compare to Roethlisbooger’s mechanics in Ravens v. Steelers 9/11/11. Sure, he also threw a few game changers — to ED REED and RAY LEWIS.

  33. scoobies05 says: Jul 1, 2013 1:50 PM

    there there steeler fans. maybe one day a nice article will be written about your qb. although the “big ben meets big ben” was pretty heart warming. go ravens

  34. larrydavid7000 says: Jul 1, 2013 2:23 PM

    Seriously? They didn’t play against each other in 2012 because Ben was injured and the games were 3 weeks apart.

    That would mean, not only did you BARELY beat the Steelers against the 2nd and lost to the 3rd stringer, but the last time it was Ben vs Joe, the Steelers went to the Super Bowl.

  36. nickster31 says: Jul 1, 2013 2:49 PM

    I am a Steelers fan, and I can say Flacco has great mechanics. That isn’t the question. It is the accuracy issues and decision making that is in question, at least for me.

    YES, Ravens fans, he had an amazing run in the playoffs and Super Bowl. And once again, congrats on that.

    PLEASE stop acting like this guy is now one of the best QB’s that has ever played the game. His career is a lifetime 60% passer, and his completion percentage is less than that over the last 2 years (57.6% in 2011 and 59.7% last year), and a lifetime QB rating of 86.3 which is more than 6 points behind Roethlisberger.

  37. scoobies05 says: Jul 1, 2013 3:16 PM

    well larry. lets see rg3 win one before you start popping off. its not 1985. redskins just arent relevant…havent been for a while

    ——————————————————-
    Reed sure was a stud that game. I was as surprised as anyone that he picked his head up (you know, hurdle mode) long enough to see the ball. Then I remember Lewis piling-on Reed after he was tackled on that play. To which his teammates had to explain not to pile-on the purple jerseys. Darn instincts.

  39. xinellum says: Jul 1, 2013 3:42 PM

    Ha ha it’s funny to read what the LOSERS last year have to say about Flacco. Watch and learn little boys watch and learn. With Caldwell as OC Flacco is a different qb obvious by his production with Caldwell as his coach during the playoff run. But after this year and 4500 yards, we will watch people change their tune or just be idiots.

  40. larrydavid7000 says: Jul 1, 2013 3:48 PM

    well scoobydoo you are 100% right its not 1985. its 2013 and a team that plays in the D.C. area is on a serious rise and heading in the right direction. You Scared Bro.??!!!

  41. jacktheraven says: Jul 1, 2013 4:05 PM

    Joe’s doubters on here have no choice, but to try to downplay his talents to make their own QB/team look better. They are grasping for any hope they can talk themselves into. Joe has made you all fools. Get used to it. Barring injury, you’ve got 10 years to keep doubting.

  42. lovefootball4life says: Jul 1, 2013 5:31 PM

    larrydavid, I’ll answer for scoobie because I’m pretty sure I know the answer. No. Neither he nor the Ravens are afraid of the Skins. Stick with your rivalry with the Cowboys or the Giants. Stop trying to play with the big boys.

  43. scoobies05 says: Jul 1, 2013 5:52 PM

    with that being said he still has a lot t prove. he needs to stay healthy for one. and the skins need to win a playoff game with him. he is incredibly talented but still has a ways to go. scared? not in the least. but i do respect griffin and wish him well

  44. jmblosser82 says: Jul 1, 2013 6:30 PM

    Your QB, like your franchise, is inconsistent. If history repeats itself look for multiple losing seasons and playoff misses in the next several years.

  45. purpleandblack2000 says: Jul 1, 2013 6:51 PM

    Playoff berths in every year he’s been in the NFL. At least one playoff win in each of those berths. Do you even know the meaning of the word “consistent”?

  46. scoobies05 says: Jul 1, 2013 7:04 PM

    wow jmblosser. you really know your nfl. let me educate you. the ravens have made the playoffs 5 straight years(longest streak in the nfl). not only that, they have won a playoff game for five straight years(longest streak in the nfl). playoffs 6 out of 7 years. so not really sure what you are basing your comments on, other then jealousy, but you missed the mark on that one. try agin

  47. jmblosser82 says: Jul 1, 2013 7:58 PM

    Ravens history, 9 playoff appearances, 6 losing records, 1 .500 record, inconsistent. Week by week last season you didn’t.t know what Raven team was going to show up, inconsistent. Lewis declaring last ride, gives Ravens kick in the butt to start playing better, only consistent part of last season. Not jealous of your 2 rings. Overall you don’t dominate the division.

  48. Joemontanaflacco says: Jul 1, 2013 8:27 PM

    “Not jealous of your 2 rings. Overall you don’t dominate the division.”

    No, just jealous of just one ring. The ring the Ravens got when they stunned the world and became SB champs in 2013. As for dominating the division, Ravens have owned the division two years in a row. If the Steelers did that, there would be a daily parade. But there isn’t because, quite honestly, the Steelers aren’t any good. The sooner you face that, the better off you’ll be, little loser team fan. Hahahahaha.

  49. scoobies05 says: Jul 1, 2013 9:00 PM

    steelers….40 years of total putridness followed by an amazing run in the 70s. 80s were ok return to glory in the 90s and most of the 2000s. very consistent last year….good defense and an offense that could only break 23 pts once against oakland. overall an 8 and 8 third place team that missed the playoffs and watched the ravens win the division for the 2nd straight year. no one is denying the steelers history. but yinz are on a downslide….from being tebowed to missing the playoffs to doing not much to improve this offseason. the games of course have to be played but please dont try and dismiss what the ravens have accomplished. the steelers have had their run. its the ravens turn

  50. scoobies05 says: Jul 1, 2013 10:43 PM

    you are quite the ravens fan. lets discuss the steelers. 40 years of ineptitude followed by a great run in the 70s. fell back a bit in the 80s and were rejuvenated in the 90s and 00s. last 2 years they watched the ravens win the division abd superbowl. all teams have ups and downs jm. and the last 5 years have been up for the ravens. hardly inconsistent. in fact, since 2000 they have made the playoffs 9 times and won 2 super bowls. so man up and just admit the ravens are good. i know youre scared but its ok

  51. ahostiletakeover says: Jul 1, 2013 11:10 PM

    jmblosser82. I present to you facts:

    Pittsburgh Steelers all time reg season record: 561-511-20 (51% winning)
    Pittsburgh Steelers all time playoff record: 33-21 (61% winning)
    Baltimore Ravens all time reg season record:
    150-121-1 (55% winning)
    Baltimore Ravens all time playoff record:
    14-7 (67% winning)

    The Browns and especially the Bengals same records aren’t anywhere near as pretty other than Cleveland’s regular season winning percentage (53%) so I won’t even bother there. Thank you folks, I’ll be here all week.

  52. taosravenfan says: Jul 2, 2013 12:38 AM

    @jmblosser – whatever it is that you are smoking, I would suggest you stop. The ravens are the only team in the nfl to make the playoffs 5 years in a row. They have been to 3 Afcn championships in that time. Offhand I think their overall record is 9-4. They are the only team to have won at least one playoff game for they past 5 years.

    If they are inconsistent Einstein, then please tell me who is more consistent than the ravens over the last 5 years.

    I will disagree with my ravens brothers in one thing… The steelers fans can come here and talk trash. They are our rivals and it is the best rivalry in the game. Right now, we have the upper hand and it is my belief that the squeakers could be in for a down year or two.

    The redskin fans that come to our blogs are just a joke. Their team has not been relevant for two decades. You can call yourselves the queen of England but that don’t make it so. You can hype rg3 and cousins all you like but they haven’t done squat in the nfl unlike joe flacco who owns a sb win, an sb MVP, and one of the best playoff runs in sb history. You are not our rivals. You play in the NFC east. For the last decade you have been playing you junior varsity team because your owner plays fantasy football with his team.

    Win a couple divisions. Win a couple of playoff games and win a sb before you compare rg3 to joe flaccid, because until you do all you accomplish is to show just how ignorant you are about football.

  53. jtbsteeler says: Jul 2, 2013 10:25 AM

    Name a team that replaced 7 or 8 defensive starters and finished in the top 5 defensively the next season. Your defensive was pathetic last season, Charlie Batch steam rolled you. Your defense will look like a rack of perfectly seasoned ribs to the first 9 qb’s you face this season.

    I already put money on your defense being garbage this season. I might as well bank on a sure thing.

  54. purplereign2 says: Jul 2, 2013 10:46 AM

    *world championship defense. ftfy.

  55. jmblosser82 says: Jul 2, 2013 11:32 AM

    You want to keep talking about Flacco’s first 5 years, lets look at Ben’s first 5, 2 out of 3 AFC titles and 2 rings. It does not matter that Flacco went to 5 straight playoffs, he is 1-2 in AFC championship game with 1 ring. Steelers ended 2 of those playoff runs, included the AFC title game en route to a ring. Both players had stellar defense in the first few years. It’s up to Joe to lead the team, its popular opinion(other then in Baltimore)that he won’t keep up the historic playoff run. Steelers have been the top team in the north and central since the Ravens came into the league and before Art took the players from Cleveland to Baltimore. Last 45 years have shown the steelers are winning more the losing, last 16 shows you have 2 more winning then losing seasons, and a lot more blunders under the former owner before he moved the players.
    Great rivalry yes, steelers still on top. Ravens dominate the division, no. 2 straight division titles sure but last year they were 4-2, Pitt and Cincy were 3-3 . A +1 game is not dominant. I am still believing Cincy takes the division this year and maybe next. By that time steelers will be reliaded and back in the game.

  56. jacktheraven says: Jul 2, 2013 11:39 AM

    jtbsteeler sounds like a gambler. He’s putting his money where his brain is. Not a smart idea.

  57. Joemontanaflacco says: Jul 2, 2013 11:56 AM

    “lets look at Ben’s first 5, 2 out of 3 AFC titles and 2 rings”

    Interesting spin. During his first five years, Roethlisbooger blew his first AFC championship, got creamed by the Jags in a WC game (sound familiar, Tebow?) and went 8-8 during his third year (sound more familiar?). His first SB was a total gift from the refs (just ask them) and the second was won on the luckiest play in the history of hail mary jump balls. And then, of course, he did Pittsburgh really proud by creating the biggest sex scandal in the history of the NFL.

    So, if you don’t mind, we’ll take the Elite Joe Flacco, thank you very much.

  58. scoobies05 says: Jul 2, 2013 12:22 PM

    its amazing how much people who cheer for a team that came 3rd at 8 and 8 like to popoff. and i think of all the defenses who cant wait to go against that “offense”. i mean how in this day an age can you consider yourself an elite qb when you can only score more than 23 pts once. flacco and the ravens did that3 times in the playoffs.

  59. jmblosser82 says: Jul 2, 2013 12:39 PM

    Fact is, jones doesn’t return that punt ravens are 9-7, 8-8 if chargers could tackle. Out of the playoffs if the safety didn’t blow coverage, AFC title loss if Welker caught what hit his hands, SB loss if Smith didn’t hold on the final 49er play. Count your blessings and prepare for a world of hurt in the upcoming years.

  60. jmblosser82 says: Jul 2, 2013 12:48 PM

    They had 24 or more points 8 times last season. Not sure how many points came from the defense in those games but they didn’t have many on the year. Plus another 2 games at 23 points.

  61. purplereign2 says: Jul 2, 2013 12:59 PM

    AFC title loss? Are you that delusional? You realize the score was 28-13 right? Also, even if the 9ers score, you realize we have almost 2 minutes to come back and kick a FG, right?

  62. jmblosser82 says: Jul 2, 2013 1:17 PM

    It was 21-13 Welker dropped a first down, turnover on downs. Patriots score it would’ve been a different game, ending may have been the same but it wouldn’t look like an easy game looking back.

  63. purplereign2 says: Jul 2, 2013 1:39 PM

    If my aunt’s name was Fred she’d be my uncle. You are saying that if Welker had caught a first down pass to keep a drive alive, and if that drive resulted in a TD, and if they then scored another field goal, and if they held the offense to no more points, they would have won. Oh yea, we got so lucky??? Seriously that doesn’t make sense.

    If Ray Rice had run for 800 yards and 15 TDs in that game, we would have posted a triple digit score. That is one hell of an if and kind of a crappy argument.

  64. Joemontanaflacco says: Jul 2, 2013 2:20 PM

    “Fact is, jones doesn’t return that punt ravens are 9-7, 8-8 if chargers could tackle.”

    Is this craziness ever going to stop? How about:
    1. Holmes doesn’t get that hail mary jump ball thrown into triple coverage — Steelers lose SB XLIII
    2.Dallas doesn’t drop the ball and the refs get the calls correct — Steelers lose SB XIII
    3. Lynn Swann can’t make that lucky catch. Lose SB X
    4. Vanderjagt makes the FG — ends season, two rings (2005) No SB XL
    5. Bahr misses a couple OT FGs; Bennie Cunningham drops a few TD catches — Steelers drop to 9-7, Cleveland goes 10-6, no playoffs 4 U!

    That leaves 1974, the only year in which one or two plays didn’t define the Steelers’ destiny. So, congrats! Hail to the Steelers! True Superbowl Champs of 39 years ago!

  65. crownofthehelmet says: Jul 2, 2013 3:08 PM

    jmf, you seem to know more about the Steelers than the Steelers do. But you left one off:
    6. If Troy doesn’t intercept that Flacco pass and take it to the house in the AFC Chamionship game – Flacco would’ve been stripped sack the next play, same outcome.

  66. jacktheraven says: Jul 2, 2013 3:34 PM

    @joemontana & purplereign. Save your breath. jmblosser & jtbsteeler wouldn’t know a Super Bowl Champion team if it fell on them. If it’s not steelers, it doesn’t count. Ignore them, maybe they’ll go away.

    its amazing how much people who cheer for a team that came 3rd at 8 and 8 like to popoff. and i think of all the defenses who cant wait to go against that “offense”. i mean how in this day an age can you consider yourself an elite qb when you can only score more than 23 pts once. flacco and the ravens did that3 times in the playoffs.

    I find it amazing that after the Pats showed how to handle a criminal a Raven fan would dare to say anything. Ravens support people that destroy evidence and lie to the police. Does anybody respect a raven fans opinion….not in my world……home of the hypocrites.

    Not to nitpick, but Aaron Hernandez hasn’t been convicted of anything so your branding him a criminal is a bit premature. Were you talking about someone else who was found guilty? No worries. We all make mistakes.

    And just curious. What on earth does this have to do with the topic? Nofool is the first person to harass and insult Ravens fans for “trolling” on Steelers’ threads. And here you go! Ironic that he/she mentions hypocrites.

    Big Ben 9 seasons in the league, 3 Super bowl appearances…

    Joe Flacco. No. 5. 5 NFL seasons. 5 consecutive years with at least 1 playoff victory. 5 TDs in the 2013 post season, then 5 more, than 1 more. 0 interceptions. Shares record with Joe Montana. SB MVP, 93 consecutive starts. Ranks 9th of all QBs who ever played.

    Never the target of a sex crime investigation. No rape accusations. A decent, law abiding, respectful family man who never made the Ravens the subject of ridicule. A true American who cares enough about his team to stay healthy and would never drag his team into an embarrassing sex scandal.

    Happy 4th to you!
