Joe Flacco blames Tim Tebow for stealing Ravens spotlight
As the Ravens continue their quest for their first home playoff game since 2006, QB Joe Flacco still doesn’t think that Baltimore gets enough love from the media and he blames Tim Tebow for stealing the spotlight.
“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,” Flacco said during a radio appearance on WNST per SportsRadioInterviews.com. That was close. For a second there it looked like Flacco was about to say he wants to see Tim Tebow fail.
“If you watched SportsCenter [Monday] it was Tim Tebow then something else, Tim Tebow then something else, and Tim Tebow then something else.” True. The same is true for publications. Just ask Sports Illustrated who will have Tebow on their cover two times in the last month.
“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.”
Love him or hate him, Tebow’s comebacks are a great story right now. They may not justify all the time that he has received on SportsCenter, but he has nothing to do with that. Flacco could be right about the lack of highlights for the Ravens, but flying under the radar is never a bad thing.
