Flacco Politely Bad-Mouths Ray Lewis

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said there were times he just kind of had to go with it, when Lewis got on a roll.

Oh, its funny, Flacco told USA Todays Robert Klemko. His speeches come from the heart, but theres definitely times where Im sitting there kind of chuckling to myself. Its all good. Theres nobody thats more passionate about what he does than that guy.

So you just sit back and take it all in, but theres times where he says some stuff and youre like, Man I dont know what that meant, but I like how he said it.

But just because he signed a six year, $120.6 million contract, which makes him the leader regardless, Flacco isnt about to try to emulate Lewiss rhetorical style.

I dont do what Ray does, but Im the leader of the football team, Flacco said. I do it in my way. There are people that do it different ways and obviously were able to do it pretty well.

Theyre going to be very different next year, as Flacco brings a style that even his own dad called dull.
