During the Super Bowl I decided to go to the Steelers fans blog site called BehindTheSteelCurtain.com and I was expecting to see the Steelers fans upset/ sad because The Green Bay Packers were ahead on the scoring board. The Steelers fans were just the opposite and they seemed very optimistic but what stood out the most to me is that they kept faith in their quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Joe Flacco has done great things for the Ravens for the past three years but if he was placed in the same situation that Steelers Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was in, I really don’t think it would be many Ravens fans here on Baltimore Beatdown displaying much optimism. I am not saying that all Ravens fans don't have faith In Joe Flacco but it seems the faith that Ben Roethlisberger gets from his fans is very different from the faith that we Ravens fans have for Joe Flacco.
I truly believe the Baltimore Ravens coaching staff doesn’t have faith In Joe Flacco at times and such things can hold a player back from their true potential. The Offensive Coordinator has to have faith in his quarterback to be able to feel comfortable with what ever play he calls for the Offense to do; If the faith isn’t there then you not going to see beyond average play calling but instead see play calling that seems predictable and receive negative results from your offense.
Joe Flacco has shown many times that he can indeed get it done if given the chance but Joe Flacco can only excel if the chains comes off from the offensive coaching staff. Joe Flacco will be going into his fourth year as The Ravens quarterback and so far he has improve much since his rookie year but this time The Ravens Coaching staff will have to let him free and keep the faith that he can lead this team to success. Joe Flacco seems to be getting the baby treatment and I could be wrong but if I’m right then it’s time for it to stop and allow this player to truly show what he has.
