Joe Flacco Sticks Up for Johnny Manziel Flipping the Bird

Johnny Manziel Finger

When you are breaking preseason ratings records, just be aware the camera will always be on you. The media is going to have a spotlight on you at all times.  People are watching and ready to create memes and skiptize an issue at a moments notice.

Good lesson for Johnny Legend last night, I doubt it happens again. Joe Flacco offered some perspective.

“I think we’ve all seen the middle finger before and we should get over it,” Flacco said today following practice.

Flacco even said he recently gave the bird to talkative Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs.

“Yeah, I flipped Suggs off the other day in practice,” Flacco said.

“When people say stuff to you, what do you do?” Flacco said. “You react, and you usually react in a way that you might not necessarily want to or not necessarily always react that way. I hate to say it, but a football field is a place where there is a lot of emotion. Sometimes, those things happen. Obviously, you want to limit to the point where no one else sees it.”

“Guys are tired as can be, people are saying things to each other. So, that kind of stuff can happen. You don’t want it to, obviously, but I always think those things are blown out of proportion and they want something to talk about.”

I agree with Flacco, doesn’t mean anything is going to change.
