Joe Flacco can't play with his kids in February

9 posts in this topic

according to Vinny Cerrato. A friend of mine told me

that Cerrato just went off on Joe this morning on 105.7 the

fan for playing with his kids instead of working out with his receivers. I agree that Joe needs to work with his receivers (which he will) but it's the second damn week of February. Cerrato is basing this off of a picture he saw of Joe on facebook, no one knows what Joe's schedule is. Apparently in today's world if ESPN doesn't report that Joe or other QBs are working out with WRs then they are deemed lazy. I agree that it's very important for QBs and WRs to work hard in building a chemistry but that doesn't always lead to success, Mark Sanchez was famous for starting up the Jets West camp and clearly that didn't make him dramatically better. We know about the Manning passing camp, Eli is always right there with Peyton every year but he's had his ups and downs despite winning two Superbowls.

Remember what Vinny's job is - stirring up discussion. If I get excited about something that guy says I know I need to step back, take a deep breath, and watch some Winter Olympics or something. There will be plenty of time for the Flacco haters to crap all over him for actual football stuff soon enough.

Of the viable concerns that one could have about Joe, the fact that he's a good father should not be on the list.

Joe's receivers are busy working their real jobs because they know their career in the the league is going to last about 4 more months. Torrey Smith is a nice slot receiver in a good offense...which ain't here. Outside of Smith Ozzie has another XFL wr corps...as

always.

Slot receiver?

 

The dude is one of the fastest burners in the NFL, and he can run all the routes. The only thing that keeps him from being a top 10 guy in the league is that he's a little undersized, but if you put Torrey in Denver, New England, New Orleans, or any other offense with a pass-first offense and a top 5 QB, he's a monster.

Funny, but the two guys who touted the stupid (and false) angle to the Kubiak hiring were Preston and Cerrato... two guys who actually spend very little time physically at "The Castle".  They talk about things as if they're first-hand knowledge... as if they've talked to "the source" face to face... as if they're 100% undeniably accurate.  But the fact is, they both get a lot of second, third, and fourth hand information from afar, put their own spin on it, and then report as if it's fact.  And they both hide behind anonymous sources ALL the time.

 

Imagine this... you get yourself a job in the media... and you have the freedom to 1) report things in whatever light YOU feel like, and 2) never have to attribute anything to a named source.

 

Pretty nice gig isn't it?  Some guys don't abuse it.  Preston does.  Always has, always will.  And Cerrato's starting to become "that guy" too.  Guess he figures he's never getting back in to the paid personnel business again, so it can't hurt him now.

 

Flacco has gotten together with his WRs "on their own" in the off-season in the past, and you can safely bet they will do it again this off-season.  When it happens, guys like Cerrato won't spend 1/10th of the time talking about it that they do criticizing beforehand.

Wouldn't Joe's working with his receivers presuppose that all of the players are interested in working out together voluntarily? It's not like the team can organize these impromptu practices, and I'm not sure how much facility support the team can provide, per the CBA.
