Joe Flacco: I’m not 100 percent, but “no limitations come Sunday”

The Ravens didn’t give quarterback Joe Flacco much to do last Sunday.

Flacco was out for almost a month due to a back injury before returning to practice a little more than a week before facing the Bengals and threw 17 passes during the 20-0 win. Flacco also took a big hit from Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap that led to a concussion evaluation, but said Wednesday that he’s feeling good if not quite fully recovered.

“I’m not going to say I’m 100 percent — but there’s no limitations come Sunday,” Flacco said, via ESPN.com. “… I was definitely very happy with how I woke up the next day and on Tuesday and how I feel today standing here. I felt like I came out of the game great — just getting better and better.”

Flacco wasn’t thrilled with how little he had to do beyond handing the ball off during the victory over the Bengals, so we’ll see this weekend if he gets more to do now that he’s further removed from his summer on the sideline.

  1. He was very limited last Sunday. Limited to throwing the ball only 5 yards down the field and most times in the dirt. So he does indeed have limitations. A ravens fan knows he’s not right.

  2. As a Flacco fan, I will readily admit that this is the year we find out if the future of the Ravens includes Joe Flacco.

  3. If Joe wins another playoff game it will be his 11th which will tie him with Aikman and Staubach. He might not win you a single fantasy game all year but heck if he won’t beat your team in January. If our defense stepped up last Christmas this would have already taken place.

    He shouldn’t have to do too much this Sunday
    ——————————
    Are you sure? Steelers needed Ben to throw 263yds, 24/36, to hang on for a win by 3 points. That’s more than twice what Joe managed. Ravens should have kept Joe safely wrapped on the bench with a heat pad on that back and should do so this week – he clearly isn’t fit and the risks outweigh the benefits.

  6. For goodness sake people, he didn’t have to do much last week. If they threw the ball the Ravens would be crucified on why they didn’t run the ball to run clock off. That was EVERYONE’s complaint last season. They did what they should have done, run the ball with a lead, 20-0 at that.

  7. “Whaaaah, everyone knows Flacco is mediocre but he just keeps winning. Whaaah”. -Haters

    Love it and if Joe Cool gave a crap what haters thought he would too. But I’m sure he doesn’t give a crap. He will just keep winning.

  8. The Ravens game plan will be the same all year. Run the ball until we need Joe to throw and to punish opposing offenses with our defense.

  9. All teams that are ahead like that should RUN THE BALL.

    If Matt Ryan and the Falcons took the same approach the to the 2nd half of the superbowl that the Ravens just took to their 2nd half of this game against Cinci, they would be superbowl champions. We all know that.

    But, lets criticize the Ravens and Flacco for a practical 2nd half gameplan.
