In an interview with SiriusXM satellite radio, Ravens Safety Ed Reed gave his honest assessment of Quarterback Joe Flacco and the Baltimore offense in their 20-13 victory over the Houston Texans last Sunday.
Reed felt that Flacco was “kind of rattled a bit” Sunday and that if the Ravens are to advance to their second Super Bowl in franchise history he will have to play better.
He went on to add.
“They had a lot of guys in the box on him and they were giving it to him. I think a couple of times he needed to get rid of the ball. It just didn’t look like he had a hold on the offense,” “I don’t know how much of [that was] the play calling … but it just didn’t look like he had a hold on the offense, you know, of times past.
“It was just kind of like they [were] telling him [what] to do — throw the ball or get it here, you know, get it to certain guys.”
Reed also added that the Offensive Line, which had a poor day against the Texans defense needed to block better. Flacco was sacked five times and Ray Rice was limited to 60 yards rushing (2.9 Average). He also mentioned that Ricky Williams should have gotten a few more carries as well.
