Joe Flacco is one of the latest players talking about Tim Tebow. While Flacco didn’t say anything about his style of play or whether he thinks Tebow can make it as a longterm NFL quarterback, he said say the “Tebow Thing” is too much. Flacco is disappointed in how much coverage Tebow is receiving, and he thinks that a team like his Ravens should receive more.
“I like Tim, but you have a tendency to want to — I don’t want to see Tim do bad — but look what happens after he wins a football game,” Flacco told a local radio station in Baltimore, viaNFL.com. “If you watched ‘SportsCenter’ today, it was Tim Tebow then something else, Tim Tebow then something else, and Tim Tebow then something else. When we beat the Steelers, were we on TV? No. I couldn’t even find a Baltimore Ravens highlight. I think that’s kinda the way it is around Baltimore. We don’t always get our respect but you gotta deal with it and go out there every week and just win football games.”
This drew a reaction from Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley, who has taken a shot at Flacco previously. Relaying the news to his followers, Woodley tweeted: “Is it me or does some1 sound jealous? LOL!!”
“I just think we’re disrespected as an organization when it comes to the media,” Flacco said. – Jamison Hensley (ESPN)
