Joe Flacco Calls New Jersey Super Bowl “Retarded”
This post season Joe Flacco has been making great decisions on the field, but his comments off the field about next year’s Super Bowl might come back to bite him.
When asked, the Ravens’ quarterback proceeded to rip the idea of a cold-weather game as reported be the NY Post.
“I think it’s retarded,” Flacco said at yesterday’s press conference before catching himself. “I probably shouldn’t say that. I think it’s stupid. If you want a Super Bowl, put a retractable dome on your stadium. Then you can get one. Other than I don’t really like the idea. I don’t think people would react very well to it, or be glad to play anybody in that kind of weather.”
Probably not the best choice of words by Flacco, and certainly an interesting comment given that fact that he grew up in Audubon, N.J. I wonder how his home state feels about this one.
