Joe Flacco Thinks The Wildcat Offense Is For Amateurs

Joe Flacco has been quite vocal this season. In fact, he's has arguably had more sound bites than highlights.This week, Flacco left behind is veiled barbs at Ray Lewis alone and focused on Jim Caldwell's implementation of the Wildcat offense last week.

Via The Baltimore Sun:

“I don’t like that stuff,” Flacco said Tuesday. “I think it makes you look like a high school offense.”

Flacco’s comments came just two days after the Ravens used backup Tyrod Taylor for a dozen plays against the Jets, hoping that the speedy quarterback would spark an offense that currently ranks 30th in the NFL in yards per game (308.8).

Taylor lined up as a wide receiver on seven plays and as the quarterback on five. He had four carries for seven yards and went 0-for-1 on pass attempts. On the five plays where Taylor took the direct snap, Flacco went out wide and stood there as the play unfolded, mostly keeping his hands in a front pocket and not even making an effort to get off the line of scrimmage.

When asked Tuesday whether those plays called for him to run a route, Flacco said defiantly, “I’m not doing a single thing. I’m not getting it. I’m not blocking, I’m not doing anything.”

Flacco may have come on a little strong, but he's correct. I may be mistaken, I doubt it though, but teams that run the Wildcat generally aren't very good ones and they never have been. The Baltimore Ravens aren't striving to find gimmicks to reach the playoffs. They simply pursue cleaner execution of the conventional offensive plays they have in their playbook. Quite frankly, the Wildcat is an illogical formation to run with Tyrod Taylor. He's a quarterback. He's not going to run anybody over like Wildcat aficionados Tim Tebow or Ronnie Brown going up the middle. Taylor excels throwing and can run when the play breaks down. Overall, this displays an overall lack of imagination in the playcalling department.
