Kevin Van Valkenburg, a writer for ESPN The Magazine, joined the Norris & Davis Show to discuss his upcoming story on Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.
The article titled Joe Flacco is anything but average discusses how Joe has gone from a guy who considered playing baseball his senior year at Delaware to becoming the leader of the Ravens.
Bob asked if Kevin was surprised that Joe Flacco’s quote on Ray Lewis was going to be such a big topic from his story. Kevin said absolutely not. He knew that Ray Lewis is such a polarizing figure and anything involving him usually gets played up.
Kevin said that he found through his research that it seemed the team was hesitant to put all the load on Joe Flacco, and that Flacco really wanted to push the tempo and move the ball by going deep more often. In the AFC Championship game against New England is when the time arrived for it to be Joe’s team.
