Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco has always been known to have a laid back demeanor. Now with Flacco’s big contract and Super Bowl ring, some people question his love for the game.
Terrell Suggs, on the other hand, is more outspoken than his teammate, and he wants to see a change in Flacco. As the Ravens report for training camp, Suggs revealed that he wants Flacco to be more aggressive and start cussing people out.
“Joe is just ‘Cool Joe,’ and not all the time. He’s not the most vocal,” Suggs said as training camp opened Wednesday. “But sometimes we may need that. He may have to cuss somebody out. He may have to cuss me out. It’s good to hear your quarterback get after somebody sometimes. I think it will be a good thing.”
“He has cussed me out before, but Joe knows how to do his little subliminal slick shots,” Suggs said with a smile.
“We’re looking for a little bit more direct.”
I understand what Suggs is trying to do with Flacco. You always see Peyton Manning and Tom Brady complaining when someone isn’t seeing the same thing they see on the field. Suggs seems confident that Flacco can have that edge, but time will tell if it happens.
