Flacco grumbles about Tebow coverage
December, 16, 2011

By Jamison Hensley


Don't expect Joe Flacco to be Tebowing anytime soon.

The Ravens quarterback publicly complained about how the national spotlight is focused on Tim Tebow and questioned why Baltimore doesn't receive the same attention.

"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."

This drew a reaction from Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley, who has taken a shot at Flacco previously. Relaying the news to his followers, Woodley tweeted: "Is it me or does some1 sound jealous? LOL!!"

Flacco could successfully argue that the Ravens have a better record than the Broncos and he is putting up better numbers than Tebow. But the dramatic finishes by Tebow have become a national sensation.

Flacco's comments also come before the Ravens make their fifth prime-time appearance of the season, a Sunday night game at San Diego.

"I just think we're disrespected as an organization when it comes to the media," Flacco said.

The Ravens played a major role in Tebow-mania landing in Denver. Baltimore was the team that traded its 2010 first-round pick to the Broncos, who used the 25th overall pick on Tebow. The Ravens received picks in the second (pass rusher Sergio Kindle), third (tight end Ed Dickson) and fourth rounds (tight end Dennis Pitta).

Hissy fit much? What a f*ckin toolbag, sissy. If Ben would of done this, the entire FLOCK of the Ravens fanbase would of been pissing their pants of laughter. What a complete joke this guy is. First rumbling about his contract, crying, and now offended and jealous of Tim Tebow? Wah, wah, wah. Get over it dude, you're not even the best QB in your own division. Flacco STILL has to go through the Steelers in the playoffs to gain credibility. (This dude needs to open his eyes, maybe that Bert unibrow is covering them up. I've seen nothing but Ravens praise and that Torrey Smith PUSHOFF multiple times when they beat us here in Pittsburgh. This dude needs some Kleenex.)

Until then, keep giving your coach's Gatorade bath's and embarrassing yourselves in the media, Baltimorons.

He does kinda have a point about the media over-hyping Tebow but he just needs to deal with it and try to actually get past the Steelers in the playoffs for once...

Tebow has been dissed and thrown under the bus since he was drafted, and now he's winning. He always been in the media, but now he's in it because he's winning. I hope he keeps getting media coverage, because he deserves it. It isn't just him though. That Broncos team has really hit it's stride.

As for Flacco. He's not ready for the playoffs. He was scared half to death both time's we played them this year.

Flacco is messing with a higher power here - it is like saying Jesus is getting too much pub

There will be consequences for The Unibrow

Wow that s funny, because they discussed that on NFL 32 last night and totally Agreed with him. Arnt you sick of hearing about Tebow, the guy sucks, only reason he wins is because of his DEFENSE and some fluke plays like gimme fieldgoals missed by the opposing team or just dumb plays from the Bears RB.
