View Full Version : Unibrow complains about Tebow coverage

Looks like he learned how to whine from Harbaugh..

Inevitably, a Tebow backlash has emerged.

And it’s coming from another AFC quarterback whose team is better, whose numbers are better, but who badly trails Tebow in the AFC fan Pro Bowl voting.

“I mean, look at Tim Tebow,” Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco told WNST radio in Baltimore, via NFL.com. “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. 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.”

Flacco believes the Ravens are “disrespected” by the national media. “The bottom line is we don’t need a lot of help because we have a great fan base every week and we win football games,” Flacco said. “We’re not a losing football team that needs to be out there in the media and be talked up like we are all-world. We are.”

Flacco is right. But media coverage is driven by the interest level from fans. Nationally, folks want to hear about Tebow. They aren’t as interested in Flacco.

Really, fans aren’t interested in many/any quarterbacks not named Tebow — including the defending Super Bowl MVP and inevitable 2011 regular-season MVP who is having one of the best seasons of any quarterback in league history.

The difference? Aaron Rodgers is using the slight as motivation for things he does on the field, not things he says off it.

Here's to hoping this leads to a Joe Whacco (and Ratbird) implosion...

Joe has had one good playoff game in three years, against KC last year. I expect him to revert to form when the pressure is on again.

Here are his playoff outings. Amazing they were able to win so many of those.

poor widdle Joey...

Flacco invokes Dangerfield as he wonders why the media doesn't respect the Ravens. (Getty Images)

By Ryan Wilson

Joe Flacco was "The Situation" for Halloween last year. Next October he should go as Rodney Dangerfield (or perhaps Rodney Harrison during his days with the Patriots) because he thinks nobody respects the Ravens, currently 10-3 and atop the AFC North with a bead on a first-round bye in the playoffs.

During an appearance on WNST radio in Baltimore earlier this week, Flacco chuckled about irrational fans and talked about what he perceives to be unfair coverage of the Ravens. (He even manages a Tim Tebow reference!). Via SportsRadioInterviews.com:

“Yeah (fans reacting and sometimes overacting to wins and losses is) pretty hilarious. I mean, everyone reacts week to week and I mean most people really have no idea what really went on in the game and how everybody played and what was supposed to be happening," Flacco said.

"I can look at an NFL game and say ‘hey this is what I thought should have happened’ but I can be way off base because I don’t know what they game planned for the week and things like that. It’s funny to see all these things."



Flacco then wondered why Tebow gets more national media attention than the Ravens.

"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," he said. "If you watched SportsCenter [Monday] 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.”

Surely, Flacco doen't "want to see Tim do bad," because that's just asking for trouble. Look what happened to the Bears after Lance Briggs said he'd be "pissed" if Chicago lost to Denver, and that while Tebow "is one heck of a football player … we’re going to have to stop that crap.” The Bears, up 10 with less than three minutes to go, lost in demoralizing fashion.

Of course, the Ravens don't face the Broncos this week, they travel to San Diego. And if they win there, they'll pretty much have the division title sewn up. If they lose, however, and the Steelers beat the 49ers on Monday night, Baltimore would drop to the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoff race. And guess who their likely opponent would be in the wild-card game? Yep, the Tim Tebow All-Stars.

Flacco then suggested that the media doesn't treat the Ravens fairly.

"I just think we’re disrespected as an organization when it comes to the media. We’re not a very big market, the bottom line is we don’t need a lot of help because we have a great fan-base every week and we win football games," he said. :We’re not a losing football team that needs to be out there in the media and be talked up like we are all-world."

We hope Flacco isn't referring to Tebow. Philip Rivers we get -- the Chargers have been a mess this season -- but besmirching Tebow's name, even indirectly, is dangerous.

Pssst, hey Joey, the Ravens are lucky to have a tenth of the fans the Steelers do. Not many care about you, so why talk about you?

The Ravens and their fan base are a psychologist's dream.

The fans complained that the security people at M&T Bank wear yellow slickers and it makes it look like there are more Steeler fans then there are.

Nuff said.

To add insult to injury, the M&T security people were also waving terrible towels during the Ravens' games with the Steelers.... :shock:

Love hearing the Flacco is spending time worrying about Tebow's media coverage this week instead of spending more time focusing on the Chargers.

and then flacco gets a primetime game against the chargers to show not only what he can do but why he's so much better than tebow.

unfortunately he succeeded in showing what he can do.

his headlines won't be near as good.

In Rush's opening segment, along with mentioning Tebow's loss, he made sure that Flacco got the same attention he said he should get. So he of course discussed Flacco's loss last night, along with five sacks, a couple of INTs, and they could now fall to a #5 seed in the playoffs :lol:

At first I thought it was a Movember thing and I kind of respected it (terrible facial hair is only good if you're trying to end cancer - and it's no worse than Crosby's attempt). But, we're well into December now and that thing is just hideous. My money says he's already shaved that thing off after the loss yesterday.

These showed him and Dennis Pitta chumming it up on the sidelines, and they both had the same stupid White Goodman Purple Cobras stache. Ridiculous.
