    Ravens owner wants Flacco to fill Ray Lewis’s leadership void, like it or not.

    Like it or not Flacco, you have to do the squirrel dance at every game now.


    On most teams, it would go without saying that the Super Bowl MVP-winning quarterback is the leader. But in Baltimore, where Ray Lewis has been the undisputed leader of the Ravens for years, owner Steve Bisciotti made a specific point of telling quarterback Joe Flacco that it’s his team now.
    Bisciotti said that with Lewis retired, there’s no question that the rest of the locker room will look to Flacco.
    You are the leader now, like it or not,” Bisciotti said to Flacco, via the team’s website.
    Flacco and Lewis have different personalities, and Flacco will probably never be the kind of vocal leader that Lewis has been. But Bisciotti told Flacco that his accomplishments in the postseason this year have made him an undisputed NFL superstar.
    “Not many guys do what you did in five years. Not many did it your way,” Bisciotti said. “Not many like the way you do it. But I said at the end-of-the-year press conference after last year’s [AFC championship] defeat, that I think the fans of Baltimore will be rewarded by your low-key presence, and it will stand the test of time. Indeed it did, and we all hope it continues to do that.”
    For the money Bisciotti is paying him, Flacco should continue to play like he did in the playoffs.

    Yea, lets not post any threads about football on here. Even if it is the AFC North. I feel the same way about those dumb backward # counts and the "what was the last thing you ate" threads that get posted here. At lest it is about football. If you don't want to talk about the Ravens why did you even open the thread and wast your time commenting ya tool.

    I live local to Baltimore. I see him on all kinds of commercials and see him on TV. He is a village idiot. I kid you not. I can't imagine him leading anything.I am surprised he can lead verb with a noun, forget about a football team.

    Oh yeah, the Pats signed Tebow.

    Speaking of the ravens...

    @AdamSchefter: Ravens were unable to work out a restructured deal for FB Vonta Leach and plan to try to trade or release him Tuesday.

    Yes, yes he would. He would give a nice boost to the running game.

    If they want Flacco to fill Lewis's role ,they should buy him a set of steak knives.
