Ravens QB Joe Flacco – aka the Crybaby – is at it again.
Flacco has taken to the media to complain about the media coverage that Broncos QB Tim Tebow is getting, basically saying that he and his birds get no coverage, while Tebow is getting tons.
“I like Tim, but you have a tendency to want to — I don’t want to see Tim do bad — but look what happens after he wins a football game,” Flacco told a local radio station in Baltimore, via NFL.com. “If you watched ‘SportsCenter’ today, it was Tim Tebow then something else, Tim Tebow then something else, and Tim Tebow then something else. When we beat the Steelers, were we on TV? No. I couldn’t even find a Baltimore Ravens highlight. I think that’s kinda the way it is around Baltimore. We don’t always get our respect but you gotta deal with it and go out there every week and just win football games.”
Boo-Hoo Joey, another enduring statement from a QB that has no trips to the Super Bowl under his belt, and better yet has choked the most when it counted – the playoffs.
The crying about Tebow drew a great response from one of the guys that loves to beat on him – Steelers LB LaMarr Woodley. Relaying the news to his followers, Woodley tweeted: “Is it me or does some1 sound jealous? LOL!!”
Flacco and the Ravens are on Sunday night football, as they have been a couple of times this season, and still the whining QB went on to say “I just think we’re disrespected as an organization when it comes to the media,” crybaby said.
While it’s no doubt that Tebow is getting a ton of media attention, like it or not he’s one of the better stories in the NFL this season, and he’s led Denver to an 8-5 record after 13 games, this after they were 1-4 when he was sitting the bench.
Why Flacco won’t just keep his mouth shut and look to play better is beyond me. Then again, why does it surprise me at all when it comes from a team of guys that can whine with the best of them.
