    How do you feel about Flacco's Comments?

    *****Speaking Monday, Joe Flacco said he had no interest in mentoring second-round QB Drew Lock.
    "I got so many things to worry about," Flacco said, embarking on his second-straight season of poor leadership ahead of a rookie quarterback. "Iím not worried about developing guys or any of that. That is what it is. I hope he does develop. I donít look at that as my job. My job is to go win football games for this football team." As was the case with Lamar Jackson, Flacco figures to be replaced by Lock at some point in 2019.****

    As a fan of my team, this kind of makes me angry. He seems to be like's hes completely insulted that we drafted an heir apparent. I think his attitude is garbage based upon these comments. His job is to help the team win... and if that means helping a young up and coming QB then thats what hes being paid to do.

    This is further reinforcing my opinion that bringing in flacco was a mistake.

    It does bother me too somewhat. It annoyed me when Favre said the same about Rodger.

    I get that this is probably Flacco's last chance to be a starting QB but I always think responses like his are the wrong way to answer.

    Also in general teammates should help teammates. Its like me not helping the new person in my department because they could outperform me and a job I want. Frankly they deserve the job or the promotion if they are better than me.

    I donít know, it kind of fits his personality. Joe comes across as an easy going guy. I would suspect as long as heís not going out of his way to be an ass everything should be fine.

    So he is not big ben ... who has no motivation until steelers draft a 3rd or 4th round QB and then all of a sudden he is committed to his team haha

    When I read your post, it kinda made me a angry at Flacco, but........ Your post doesn't show the whole thing. Now seeing the video and looking up the report, I kinda agree with him.


    Flacco response to questions:

    "I got so many things to worry about," Flacco told reporters. "I'm trying to go out there and play good football. I'm trying to go out there and play the best football of my life. As far as a time constraint and all stuff, I'm not worried about developing guys or any of that. That is what it is, and like I said, I hope he does develop. But I don't look at that as my job. My job is to go win football games for this football team."

    Flacco emphasized that Lock would learn best from offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello, who spent the past two seasons as a quarterbacks coach with the San Francisco 49ers.

    "I'm not a selfish person, I don't think," Flacco said. "There are times where you have to be selfish. But listen, Rich does such a good job in those meeting rooms.

    "Drew is going to learn from listening to him talk, and then all of us getting reps on the field and seeing how we all do it as a collective group and as a quarterback. Listen, I hope he does learn from me because that means we're out there and we're slinging it around and having a lot of fun because he's going to learn by watching us do it and watching us do it well. That's how he's going to learn the timing and all those things is to be able to see it on film and hear Rich talk about it with me and digest as much as possible."

    New city, new teammates, new coach and system. Joe is right about getting his own ducks in a row before becoming a coach. He's here to win games, period. I'm sure if the other QB's ask him a question, he will respond with the best of his knowledge. His focus needs to be on preparing for the raiders.

    If your boss at your job brought up a new hire to you to train and you knew once he is trained, this new hire will take your job and you will be a ex-employee, would you train him? I sure wouldn't. Lock has talent but bad habits. He has a OC and a QB coach to work with him. Why should Flacco spend his time being a coach and maybe next season be unemployed? That is just plain stupid.

    its right its not his job to do anything other then be a model for the kid. show him how a PRo-QB works and studies tape. its a job it is his job to be the best he can be over anything else. which should mean he should being a good model for Drew. i am not to worried about it. it is the coaches job to make sure all the QBs are ready.

    Eh. Pretty much the same way he handled the Jackson pick last year. It was just about what anyone should have expected

    It's extremely rare for a QB to have any interest in wanting to set aside time to mentor his replacement. I think Alex Smith and Josh McCown are the only two starting QBs in recent memory that have said they were totally fine with mentoring their replacements.

    It's not Joe's job. If he didn't have that attitude, I'd be concerned. It's Drew's job to EARN the spot. If he wants it, he has to beat Joe out... (which shouldn't be too terribly difficult). With all that being said- Joe isn't going to be a jerk. He'll answer questions, he'll help when asked. He just won't go out of his way for it.

    reading the "whole" thing...i don't see anything wrong with what he said, really nothing to see here.

    Nothing to see here scroll up ! LOL !

    For reals this is a Non Issue ! I watched the Presser and Joe is right Drew will learn from Rich the OC and the QB Coach ! Drew will learn how to be a Professional QB how to go about Daily Life I have no doubt that Drew will learn the Correct way and that is through Coaching not Joe as it is not Joe's Responsibility what so ever it is Joe's Responsibility to Win Football Games Not Throw Interceptions or Miss the Mark like Case !

    Lock has yet to have an NFL training camp or take a single snap in a game, yet it's assumed he'll be anointed a first year starter?? Where did THAT unfounded assumption come from??
