Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has once again criticized the Wildcat offense that Baltimore employed on Sunday.
Flacco, who said after Sunday’s game that he wants to line up behind the center, and not at wide receiver while backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor takes snaps in the Wildcat, went into greater detail today.
“I think it makes you look like a high school offense,” Flacco said, via Clifton Brown of CSNBaltimore.com.
Flacco said the Ravens’ coaching staff understands his frustration, and that he does not expect the Ravens to use the Wildcat again this season.
“They know how I feel about it,” Flacco said.
Taylor was generally ineffective in the Wildcat on Sunday against the Jets, but then again “generally ineffective” pretty well describes the Ravens’ offense with Flacco at quarterback this season, too. Flacco has followed an offseason in which he signed a $120 million contrct with a regular season in which his passer rating plummeted to a career-low 76.8. The best way for Flacco to show the Ravens don’t need the Wildcat is for him to start playing like a $120 million quarterback when he is behind the center.
