Ravens Super Bowl MVP, Joe Flacco, joined Mark Zinno live on Last Call to talk SB, MVP, Ravens offseason, DWTS & more!
What’s really set in the most since the Super Bowl & signing the “big deal”?
“…just trying to get back to a little bit of normalcy & get ready for next year. Start to get a little bit healthy & just enjoy the down time for a little bit.”
Was Joe surprised by any of the Ravens off season moves?
” I think when you are in the league for 5 years you get so used to all the off season moves that nothing really catches you by surprise at this point. I don’t know if I was ever really, really surprised by any of the moves but, obviously we are going to miss some of those guys. They’ve been great players for us & we wish them the best in the future.”
On being a leader in the Locker room:
“I am who I am & I’ve been that way for a reason and I’m not going to change…I’m going to be the same person & continue to lead the guys in the same way.”
On missing Ray Lewis:
“Ray was obviously that vocal guy on Sunday. But to be honest with you, he wasn’t probably the most vocal guy in the locker room on a daily basis anyway. He was just Ray Lewis & that was enough. He was our guy & I think because of that we’ve just had so many guys learn to be leaders like that & follow him, It’s a group effort in our locker room & I think it’s going to stay the same.”
LISTEN TO THE FULL INTERVIEW:
On putting up the stats to be considered an “elite passer”…
I always look to go out there & put up a lot of statistics & do those things. I don’t think they are necessarily the most important, but they are important. They are definitely something that is important to me & always has been.”
Are you watching Jacoby Jones on Dancing With The Stars?
“I watch Jacoby every week…” “I knew he could dance but I am definitely impressed with some of the things he’s doing week to week. He’s doing a really good job.”
