Joe Flacco Bought A Mega Millions Ticket At 7-11

Really, when you get right down to it, signing a non-guaranteed contract is like playing the lottery anyway. So there you go, NFL, your most recent Super Bowl MVP and "highest paid player" recipient of a sham $121 million contract in the off-season is playing the lottery at a chain convenience store like the rest of us… » 12/21/13 4:10pm 12/21/13 4:10pm

McDonald's Has 10 Million Pounds Of Unsold Mighty Wings

This fall, McDonald's introduced Mighty Wings, those seasoning sticks vaguely flavored like chicken. Remember those commercials with Joe Flacco and Colin Kaepernick? They threw footballs for wings! What a world! Anyway, the promotion started with an inventory of 50 million pounds of wings, and there are still 10… » 12/19/13 8:40pm 12/19/13 8:40pm

Charts: Who Are The Best Deep Passers In The NFL?

Deep passes are the most exciting play in televised football—the viewing audience can't see the situation downfield until the ball (and the camera) make it down there, so the play always feels, in that tiny moment before we catch up, like a sure touchdown or interception. It's well known that not every QB in the league … » 11/24/13 1:14pm 11/24/13 1:14pm

Ray Lewis Still Not Making Any Sense

Ray Lewis thinks it was a conspiracy that turned the lights off at the Superdome during the Super Bowl last year.

Denver Sports Reporter Turns Vigilante, Defaces Joe Flacco Banners

Because of scheduling complications, the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens will be playing on the road during the NFL's Thursday night opener, a game which the previous year's champion customarily gets to play at home.

Joe Flacco's Official Shirts Are Just As Boring As You'd Expect

As we've discussed before, there is something truly endearing about Joe Flacco's willingness to present himself as the most boring man in the NFL.

It's OK For Joe Flacco To Just Be Boring

One of the most entertaining subplots going into the NFL season is finding out just how uninteresting Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco can be. (He's had a strong offseason. His own dad called him "dull," and he plans to stare at the money from his new contract.) This dude is boring. If you cut Flacco's arm, he'd… » 8/24/13 12:00pm 8/24/13 12:00pm

Reports: Joe Flacco—That Joe Flacco—Will Soon Be The Highest Paid…

Yep, Joe Flacco. The big-armed oaf. The doofy bridegroom. The guy whose dad said he was "dull" four times in two sentences five days before the Super Bowl. That guy. No, not the plumber who stripped the washers off your sink and left his wrench on your kitchen table—I mean the guy who backed up Tyler Palko at Pitt before … » 3/02/13 10:00am 3/02/13 10:00am

Joe Flacco Wasn't The First To Consider Leaving The Sideline To Tackle…

After the Super Bowl, it was revealed that Joe Flacco had seriously considered running onto the field from the sideline to tackle Ted Ginn if Ginn had broken off a big kick return on the last play of the game. Flacco's idea was a ridiculous one, and would have resulted in the 49ers being awarded a touchdown, but it… » 2/15/13 6:15pm 2/15/13 6:15pm

The Ravens Dig The Deep Ball: Joe Flacco And Jacoby Jones Connect For…

We've previously mentioned Baltimore's affinity for the deep ball and here is Joe Flacco, once again, successfully going long. He may have underthrown it just a bit (give him a break though, he did throw it 50 yards downfield), but Jacoby Jones helped his quarterback out. He caught the ball as he fell on his ass,… » 2/03/13 8:02pm 2/03/13 8:02pm
