After half a season of waiting, we finally got our first full dose of Lamar Jackson in the NFL on Sunday. With starting QB Joe Flacco injured, the first-round pick and former Heisman winner at Louisville battled past a stomach illness to take advantage of the opportunity, leading the now 5-5 Ravens to a 24-21 win over…
The Saints beat the Ravens on Sunday on the rarest of rarities. So there would’ve been a lot to potentially talk about in the postgame meet-and-greet, but Joe Flacco got right to the important stuff: He needed to let Sean Payton know that Payton’s brother sold him a mattress on the Jersey Shore a few years ago.
Last week, Joe Flacco’s wife Dana called out her husband for his complete dearth of enthusiasm on plays where he lines up as a wide receiver. The Ravens quarterback had a chance to show some of that trademark Flacco spark in the third quarter of Sunday’s game, when Lamar Jackson took a snap behind center. Flacco might…
The Ravens have occasionally thrown two-quarterback looks at opponents this season, with both Lamar Jackson and Joe Flacco on the field at the same time. When Flacco has to split out wide, he does so with all the enthusiasm of a child forced to dress up for church.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco sucks real bad, and moreover has been just sort of broadly shitty for several years, just a total glassy-eyed doofus with a giraffe neck and a knack for cartoonishly ill-timed mistakes. He’s also old. Taken together, these are the reasons why the Ravens selected former Heisman…
Despite the worst efforts of Joe Flacco, who went 4 of 18 for just 28 yards in the first half, the Ravens are actually trying to make the playoffs by beating the Bengals today. It’s proving to be extremely difficult, and Darqueze Dennard made the task even harder by stealing a catch away from Chris Moore and taking it…
After a 3-4 start, the Baltimore Ravens are in the thick of the AFC wild-card chase, with a hatefest showdown on tap for Sunday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.* But the Ravens are so perfectly ordinary this season, when I pitched an analysis of them to two of my editors, these were their responses:
Joe Flacco, last week’s Bad Quarterback of the Week, was actually quite good in yesterday’s 44-20 stomping of the Detroit Lions. Flacco threw for 269 yards and two touchdowns, and was feeling so good after the game that he opened his press conference by clowning Jameis Winston.
Welcome to Bad Quarterback Performance Of The Week, a recurring feature in which we celebrate the worst quarterback play the NFL has to offer.
This throw from Joe Flacco looks extremely ill-advised on first glance, with Green Bay’s Damarious Randall giving no space and covering Mike Wallace perfectly as he runs towards the end zone. But somehow, Flacco found a seemingly nonexistent window to fit the ball through, and Randall could do nothing to prevent the…
Kiko Alonso drilled Joe Flacco in the head as the Ravens quarterback attempted to slide late in the first half tonight in Baltimore, sending Flacco to the locker room and drawing face-to-face anger from Ravens head coach John Harbaugh.
Well shit. Everyone on the Ravens is getting catastrophically injured. Joe Flacco has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season. He tore it on the play above but stayed in to finish out the game despite “an enormous amount of pain.”
After a few breaks went their way, the Ravens found themsleves eight points down with 76 yards to go and 1:53 left, with no timeouts. A tough task under the smoothest of circumstances—and even tougher when the Ravens’ sideline lost communication with the huddle.
Pestilent clownfister Donald Trump did a video Q&A today, and two of the 12 questions he answered were about the NFL. The first and most important was on the eliteness of one Joe Flacco:
Commenter Keisertroll shared a photo of possibly elite quarterback Joe Flacco—back when he was a student at Audubon (N.J.) High School—during Gawker's search for notable people in their readers' yearbooks. Flacco looks so over it.

The Buccaneers' defense is trash right now, but Joe Flacco only needed one half to sufficiently torch them.
