3 Takes: Too Much News On Joe Flacco?

3 Takes: Is there too much news on Joe Flacco?

It seems like everyday there is a news story on Joe Flacco.  Whether it be a national analyst or NFL player, everyone is weighing in on Flacco.  But, is all this attention way too much?

We pose the question to our Ravens Gab columnists. The coverage of Flacco: Fair? Unfair? Or is it totally like an obsessive tabloid story?

Gene Winner – Columnist/Draft Analyst

“Yes, there is too much news on Flacco, he’s been way over analyzed.  Of course Flacco has to improve and take on more of a leadership role. Let’s be fair though, the team needs to improve as well and that includes the offensive play calling.  I also get the sense that there are some critics out there that think Flacco will not ever take this team to a title; that he doesn’t pose the skills to do so. It reminds me of the critics who thought Terry Bradshaw wouldn’t amount to anything.  In the meantime, while everyone is analyzing Flacco, the real story should be the Ravens running game–it could look a lot different after free agency.”

Matt Jergensen – Editor/Player Analyst

 “It’s definitely been an over-analyzed story this off-season. It seems as is every former quarterback/current talking head has been asked to give an opinion on Joe Flacco. My opinion is pretty simple. He’s has enjoyed great success early in his career but he will never silence critics until he wins big games and eventually the ultimate prize. Fortunately he’s got plenty of time to do it. Let’s not forget that he hasn’t reached his prime yet.”

Jonathan Scruggs – Columnist/Legal Analyst

“My Take: As the saying goes, no press is bad press. Sure Joe is getting hung out to dry pretty badly this off season, but on the bright side his presence in the NFL as an elite quarterback is growing each time someone mentions his name. I think most of what’s being said is unfair, but until Joe wins a ring, people are always going to have these same knocks against him. It comes with the job.”
