Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome wants Joe Flacco to back up his comments
Joe Flacco raised plenty of eyebrows when he said he believed he was the best quarterback in football. You had to wonder if his teammates and organization agreed. Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome offered his opinion Wednesday.
“Any player, any coach, any GM do not think they aren’t the best at what they do,” Newsome said Wednesday when asked about Flacco’s comments. “For Joe to say that, I think that’s a common thing.
“The aspect of it that I think we all also look at is, if you make a statement like that, then you also have to prepare yourself to be the best. I’m sure that Joe is also doing that.”
That doesn’t exactly sound like a glowing endorsement to me. Maybe Newsome didn’t want to gush with praise of Flacco because the sides are involved in contract negotiations. Or maybe he’s just like the rest of us and laughing at Flacco’s absurd statement.
