Flacco is not interested in mentoring Drew Lock

Recommended Posts

Headline is deceptive. All he says is that he is concerned with helping the team win. He did say " I hope he does develop." So it is not like he will work well on slippery roads (he is not  "Anti-Lock").

He views himself as the starter Not a QB mentor.  

 

Im not sure you’d hear different from Rodgers Brady Brees etc. not that Flacco  is at that level..

Joe Flacco: I’m here to win games, not be a mentor

 

I remember quite a few wanted Flacco especially two years ago to replace Tyron, I guess Flacco is not a process guy? 🙂

 

This is taken WAY out of context.  Brutal misrepresentation of what Flacco said/meant.

"Flacco was asked about serving as a mentor to the rookie and said that he hopes Lock does learn from watching him, but made it clear that he’s focused on playing football while offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello is charged with developing the young quarterback.

 

“It’s kind of Rich’s job. It’s to be in that quarterback room and watch. That’s how you can develop. I got so many things to worry about,” Flacco said. “I’m trying to go out there and play good football. … I’m not worried about developing guys or any of that. That is what it is. I hope he does develop. I don’t look at that as my job. My job is to go win football games for this football team.”

 

TBH, I view the mentor question as a class of "have you stopped beating your wife yet?" damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't questions for a vet who is still starting.

 

If the guy says "you betcha, I'm gonna devote myself to mentoring" then you're a has-been whose competitive fire has dimmed to embers.

If the guy says "I hope he learns, but I'm trying to win games for this team and play good football, it's the coach's job to develop him" then you're not a team guy.

It’s on the qb coach to coach lock.  But it’s not like flacco isn’t going to work with him like normal qbs in the room do.

Farve said the same thing.

 

Aaron Rodgers introduced himself to Farve with "Hello Grandpa".  Farve probably said considerably worse.

I don't see any problem with this. He wasn't brought in to be a mentor. It's not like signing an aging backup.

He just needs to tread water until 2021... then the contract year magic will resurface and he’ll win everything!

The writer of the article is most at fault.  He made it look like a quote and it was not.  And in the process, made Flacco look like a total a-hole.  Even if the link was copied, the quote shows up.

That's dirty, Bush League, crap.  And who the hell is Josh Alper??

Did he really? They say he’s smart, but.......smart comes in different forms. They also say he’s full of himself, but..........did he really???

Haha.  In his bio of Favre, "Gunslinger" Jeff Pearlman tells the story, which he claims was corroborated by a teammate:

Favre was alone, sitting in the team cafeteria and reading a newspaper, when Rodgers saw him in person for the first time. The new quarterback approached the old quarterback and uttered what will forever go down as the worst introductory line in the history of professional sports. "Good morning, grandpa!"  Silence.

 

However, Rodgers denies this.  He says he probably called Favre "Grandpa" at some point, but it wasn't when they first met.

 

So....did he really?  Who knows?
