Photo Story: ‘No Respect’ starring Joe Flacco, John Harbaugh, and special guest Rodney Dangerfield

For all of his talent as a passer, and his very good regular season and post season records during his first four years in the NFL, Joe Flacco is not generally considered to be among the upper tier of quarterbacks in the NFL.

As good as his won/loss numbers may look, Flacco’s stats suggest to many that the Ravens win in spite of him more than they win because of him, with defense and a strong running game keying this decade of success in Baltimore. And save for a few big performances in big games (the two Pittsburgh games this year, his statistically terrific start against Kansas City in last year’s playoffs), Flacco has mostly underwhelmed in his most watched moments. This clearly bothers Flacco, as his comments this week prove.

Among these now-notorious comments was this gem: “I’m sure if we win [the Super Bowl] I’ll have nothing to do with why we won, according to you guys.”

For our latest photo story I decided to analyze Joe Flacco’s pervasive feelings of disrespect, as well as what effect the sharp drop in completion percentage Flacco has experienced this year (the lowest of his career) may secretly have had on his teammates and coaches, whose undying support of Flacco has always seemed just a too too effusive, without Flacco really earning it.

Of course, I’m not in the locker room, so what do I know?

Update: I published this a day before these comments by Ed Reed caused a bit of a firestorm. Perhaps this photo story was more accurate than I thought…

  1. Absolutely perfect. And the hilarity just kept going on and on. Linked this at

  2. Not funny

  3. You guys from other markets think Joe cares what you think based upon your limited understanding of him and his personality.  It’s just the opposite.  He doesn’t give a toss.  He cares about winning and losing.  Everything else, including this really unfunny waste of space and time, is just noise.

    He happens to have a hot wife that he was dating before he was famous.

    Maybe it’s just that attention whores like yourself are just incapable of understanding a guy that’s not like you.

  4. Great – I should definitely pronounce, impressed with your web site. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs as well as related info ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it in the least. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything, site theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Excellent task..

  6. Pefecrt shot! Thanks for your post!

  7. Antes que nada felicidades por el tuto.. pero tengo un problema:solo una vez me pude contectar al winscp.. pero ya despues no .. me sale el mensaje de tiempo expirado.. ayuda please!!

  8. Ce n’est pas LH qui a été renflouée jadis, et ce n’est toujours pas LH qui, si elle venait à disparaître du fait de l’autisme de ses syndicats couterait une fortume aux contribuables et assurés sociaux français !Et enfin ce n’est pas toujours pas LH qui embolise les aérogares de ORY et de CDG du fait de ses gréves chroniques coutant à chauque épisode des millions d’euros de PIB à l’économie FRANCAISE.Donc fly, commentaire inutile et hors sujet (CF titre de l’article).

  9. Jeg og trives så godt i den parken!Deilig å være barnslig :)Ja det er et must med 2 dager, hvertfall når man skal fylle fler behov. For Herman i år, så gikk det greit med en dag for det er ikke alt han kan være med på (ikke gøy å dra en hylende 2.5 åring bort fra de bilene, dårlig gjort! ) :)Kos dere videre i sommer.Klemmer fra Herman&Tina.

  10. Bonjour Mèche Blonde (Warfff juste une mèche… )« programme choisi à l’avance » signifie pour moi que nous choisissons notre vie, notre incarnation en fonction de l’expérience que l’on veut développer. C’est une croyance, la mienne. Je ne saurais pas vous démontrer que cela est vrai ou pas. C’est mon intime conviction.Bonne fêtes !

  11. Hi Sandra & Juan Carlos!I ‘m sorry it has taken so long to write you back! We LOVE LOVE LOVE the photos! They are so incredible and I can’t believe that you were abe to capture everything about the day! Our family and friends can’t stop talking about how beautiful the photos are and how enjoyable you were to have there on the big day! Thank you so much and I will be in touch soon w/ orders, to discuss the album and to give you a raving testimonial! Thanks again,Courtney

  12. Magnifique idée que le miroir puisque tu m’autorises cet accessoire supplémentaire je vais m’y essayer dès que j’ai une minute.Amicalement, Marckaos.

  13. I just want to tell you that I am new to blogging and site-building and actually liked you’re web-site. Almost certainly I’m planning to bookmark your blog . You amazingly come with good posts. With thanks for sharing your website page.

  14. 9MPH for sustainable electricity generation.(low wattage production at that speed) US government currently offers tax incentives for eco-friendly conversions like wind generation or solar power. however last I knew there was a cap of 2000 dollars. As a republican can I just say Thanks for nuttin George. I’ve got your rebate right here! Some lenders have special programs to help you set up a system with lower interest rates you may want to see if there are any “Green” credit unions or co-ops that lend. Join one and go from there

  15. You're out of your mind. What would Indians know about finding employment for 1,000's of Education majors each year? If the system ain't broke, don't fix it.In all seriousness, you might want to check out some of John McWhorter's writings – plenty of good stuff about certain demographic groups' educational misadventures. Even when the groups in question earn as much as whites, and have their kids enrolled in model high schools & the ivies.

  16. . Your favorite justification appeared to be at the web the simplest factor to consider of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst other folks consider worries that they just do not realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and also defined out the entire thing without having side effect , other folks can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks!

  17. Não. Ele fará a consulta ao enviar o formulário ou quando o usuário sair do campo (evento blur) se for especificado nas suas opções. Espero que tenha ajudado e boa sorte.

  18. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I came across this during my search for something relating to this.

  19. ☼Sunshine☼January 26, 2012 Oh no they didn’t! I was such a great fan of them together as a couple because of City Hunter. They look so adorable together, OTL. But I guess now another celebirity couple has failed. T__T

  20. Hahahahaha I always look forward to your posts, Jamie! [And not because your stories help me to feel better about myself.] I would support your decision to try stand up comedy. Who has a 22 inch waist?

  21. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  22. Great post. I certainly find that my clients who are thought leaders (e.g., book authors) in their fields get far more links to their websites than the others. Nothing trumps quality content.

  23. None of those are similes…Also for the comment that this is a sellout, you don't think Vevo was a sellout? It is Google, they are a huge company. And this doesn't take anything away from YouTube, so not much will change unless you actively seek this programming out.Sounds cool, obviously not all of the content is up my alley, but some of it sounds interesting.

  24. I could watch Schindler’s List and still be happy after reading this.

  25. Thank you for pointing me to this overlooked nuance, that there is perhaps some optimism buried in this particular experience of anxiety! Underneath all of these glittering insecurities there might just be a bit of confidence and optimism. I like optimism!

  26. Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks

  27. I disagree with just one thing. I wouldn't speak of any particular "liberal" bigotry against Israel. It's true that today, the left tends to be more anti-Israel than the right. Yesterday the right was more anti-Israel, and tomorrow, who knows? Conservatism isn't inherently less anti-Israel than liberalism, whatever the circumstances of the moment happen to be.

  28. Call me wind because I am absolutely blown away.

  29. Per Paolo … Se pensiamo che il primo volo dell'uomo risale a poco più di cent'anni or sono…Il primo volo con una macchina più pesante dell'aria. Le mongolfiere esistono dal Settecento in Europa, in Cina ancora prima.

  30. As Patrick Swayze sang, I’m just a fool to believe, but I can’t yet convince myself that there’s not shot. Beckett is not pitching in this series – the current Sox probables are Lackey, Kyle Weiland, and Lester vs. Big Dub, Hellboy & Juego G. That set of matchups gives me hope that a sweep is possible. Anything less than a sweep and I’ll be ready to give up – until next weekend when they come to Fenway and my optimism is rekindled.

  31. Yes, WoW is an interesting exception which I hadn’t thought of – possibly because it’s the only Blizzard game which I not only haven’t played – but never intend to play. I’ve seen what it can do to people…WoW was definitely new territory for Blizzard, whereas games like Civ4, which was also released too early, was not exactly a different kind of game to what it’s developers had made previously. Though admittedly, even in that case, it was their first shot at using a 3D engine, which was the source of many of the problems.

  32. Nubile male or nubile female, Ossian? There ARE nubile males!Ossian is kind of sweet – you could just use that and then add a double barrel surname. e.g. Ossian Jolie-Knightley. That should do it. Oh, and the book of course.

  33. #1 for summer…#5 or #6 for fall and winter. And thank you for the dry shampoo tip. I needed one…now!!!! I have dark hair too so am glad to get a referral from someone who isn't blonde. Some of the brands I tried left a powdery look. Not good!

  35. Prince Charming, sadly Scott Hall disappeared as quickly as he appeared. More’s the pity!!! (Scott Hall is the awesome). More Sun intrigue is on the way for the biggest and smallest of fans. (LOL @ icarly-Mandy)

  36. This has made my day. I wish all postings were this good.

  37. about spirituality is the seeking of truth. I trust that we will always be seekers of the truth, the truth being Jesus and that we will always have an open mind to truth for only in the truth will we truly be free. I cna’t remeber where I heard this phrase, but some writer wrote, “Hell is the absence of God”. Without Him, there is nothing, no hope, no forgiveness. The question of hell goes back further to the idea of ‘original sin’ and ‘free will’ both topics of great debate down through the centuries. Some food for thought.Uncle Doug

  38. Hi my dear-how awesome it would be to find a cider press, you and Jon would be supping for ages!! I adore your Jeff Banks blouse, it goes so well with that fab maxi skirt xxx

  39. Four score and seven minutes ago, I read a sweet article. Lol thanks

  40. Wow, superb weblog structure! How lengthy have you ever been running a blog for? you made blogging glance easy. The full glance of your web site is excellent, let alone the content material!

  41. am |This is what Phil Berg was trying to stress from early on. If Lt Col Allen West runs for President down the road and he was the best candidate at the time I would vote for him. Character not color of skin. Obama represents Obama-he just pushes the complexion color story when it suits his convenience. Allen West On Barack Obama: “I can’t stand the guy. I absolutely can’t stand him ….

  42. Ça y’est ! Les élections sont terminées. Plus de présidentielles, plus de législatives, en tout cas pendant 5 ans, si tout se passe bien.

  44. (Misc.) I bought this charger because the original one quit. It works fine. I was just glad that I was able to find one instead of buying a whole new driver. Be aware of the “bad battery” warning. My instructions read that if your battery has a measured voltage of more than 0.6 volts less than the published voltage of the battery (in my case a 14.4 volt battery should have no less than 13.8 volts when measured with a meter), you should get rid of the battery. This may have been what caused the first charger to die (my original battery was at 5.8 volts).

  45. WOW! I don't think I've seen this image before, and if I did….it didn't look like this! Your colouring and all those folds…amazing! You have such a knack for picking all the right papers and elements too. Gorgeous card!!!Joyce xx

  46. Oh My Goodness! I LOVE those communication boards. I teach K-2 SPED and I've done these for Making Words activities, but somehow never thought about using it for sentences too! Great idea!!Lisa

  47. That’s really thinking out of the box. Thanks!

  48. Hiya…..Nice read, I just passed this onto a friend who was doing some research on that. And he actually bought me lunch as I found it for him smile Thus let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch! “They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how yo…

  49. Ciao Marco complimenti tutto molto interessante…Mi sto accingendo ad acquistare una gp 1200 dove verra’ istallato i,Minato GPL volevo semplicemente sapere se c’è molta differenza tra la 1200 e la 1400 come prestazioni grazie

  50. Thanks so much for giving everyone an exceptionally terrific opportunity to discover important secrets from this web site. It is always so excellent and full of a great time for me and my office co-workers to visit your blog a minimum of three times in 7 days to learn the fresh guidance you have. And of course, I’m so always astounded with the mind-boggling information you serve. Some 4 points in this posting are in reality the most impressive I’ve ever had.

  51. As of that day, the course navigation functionality wasn’t fully implemented (it came in on firmware this past weekend) – so it wasn’t possible to really test it out then. I could download the courses to it easily, but until now haven’t been able to run through them.As for recording intervals – you have two options, a regular option and an ultra option. My understanding is that these aren’t yet set in stone, as far as how they operate. I suspect we’ll eventually see 1-s recording and then something akin to ultra-recording like we see on the Ambit.

  52. I think some racism can be subconcious or inadvertant.  However, based on your suggestion, you must agree that SB 185 is racist, being that by design there is at least a degree of preferential treatment for certain races?

  53. He still is eligible to play for the US. You have had players who have not represented the US on any levels, and you still added them. Also, I know he has not made the bench a lot. He also, has not represented Portugal neither.So why does he get snubbed?

  54. Thank you so much for your comment! Indeed, where would we be without those who resisted pathologizing labels and celebrated their own extremity? Thanks again!

  55. Da me se entrasse una col CV stampato sulla maglietta sarebbe immediatamente assunta se portasse almeno una terza… conoscendo quel maniaco del mio capo!!uahahahahahahah

  56.  ( 2012.03.5 05:29 ) : You are so awesome! I wont suppose Ive read anything like this before. So great to search out anyone with some initial thoughts on it question. realy thank you to get starting it up. this website is certainly something is required on the internet, person by having a little originality. beneficial position for carrying something which new to the web!

  57. Not bad at all fellas and gallas. Thanks.

  58. Just what the doctor ordered, thankity you!

  59. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.

  60. Words may be cheap when you give them away, but we all know good writing when we see it… and with excellent posts like this, we also feel like we get to know you the writer, rather than just your writing. So keep on blogging! It will lead to more sales… I hope…Like? 0

  62. Written by Antonio Vivaldi (the red priest) in 1723 in F minor, The Four Season was one of (if not the most) famous works. Using a varriety of string instruments he depicts the season Winter during that time period which was cold,long,and full of death. His inspiration for this piece was probably around the Mantua countryside.He is able to potray

  66. Tack själv. En FB-grupp är inte mycket för världen men med stort medlemsdeltagande sÃ¥ kommer aktiviteterna vi planerar fÃ¥ effekt. Det är min ansats i varje fall. Nya medier är sÃ¥ nya sÃ¥ dess potential har vi – inbillar jag mig – ännu inte sett början pÃ¥ än… Det här är ett försök att ta det till en ny nivÃ¥ med fokus pÃ¥ aktivism.@Z: Exakt sÃ¥! Bra skrivet!

  67. Thanks very much, John E! I was never a Michael Jackson fan, but with all the publicity surrounding his death, I’m surprised I never saw Jacko. I guess that’s the down side of reading the NYTimes and the Washington Post. :-)

  68. I’m not easily impressed. . . but that’s impressing me! :)

  69. Kako, si este "kunchen" nos ayuda a tirar adelante con la operación bikini, yo me apunto ya mismo. ¿Dónde hay que ir? Ja ja ja. Me ha gustado mucho este pastel, y además la cantidad de harina no es excesiva, que sabemos que es lo primero de lo que hay que prescindir cuando nos ponemos a dieta.Besos y feliz domingo!!

Going forward it’s more of the same, as Garmin is dominating planned corporate GPS purchases for the 2nd Quarter with a 56% market share That’s a huge 10-pt jump since November.Magellan takes second with 10% (up 2-pts), while TomTom limps in at 5% (down 7-pts).Best Quarter in History?
