Joe Flacco hopes he can teach Drew Lock by ‘lighting it up’

Joe Flacco

Joe Flacco is willing to help backup and potential heir apparent Drew Lock, but he has a unique way to do it.

Flacco said Monday he is hopeful that Lock will learn from new offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello, but does not intend to take on a hands-on mentoring role himself. He also hopes that the rookie picks up a thing or two from him as well, because if he does, it’s probably because Flacco is performing well.

Veteran quarterbacks are in a weird spot when teams pick rookie backups, and it’s led to awkward relationships before. Flacco is taking the approach that he has nothing to fear if he plays well, and that will prove instructive for Lock, too. Whether it works that way remains to be seen.
