Flacco 'not happy' over Ravens firing Zorn

On Thursday, the Ravens gave the boot to quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn. Since then, there's been plenty of chatter about whether or not there was drama creeping into the relationships within the Baltimore offensive staff.

Maybe there is, maybe there isn't. But's quite clear, based on his quotes Saturday, that Joe Flacco isn't pleased with the decision to send Zorn packing.

"I'm not happy about it and they know I'm not happy about it," Flacco said per Aaron Wilson of the County Carroll Times. "I don't think it was a good decision.

But not only did Flacco disagree with the decision, he also took it personally.

"I also feel like a little bit like I'm being attacked," Flacco said. "You fire the quarterback coach. Usually when your fire a position coach, it's because you're not really happy with how that position did. And when I look back on my season and our season as a team, I mean, we won 13 games. I felt like I had a pretty good year and you're firing the quarterback coach? It's kind of an attack on me, I feel like.

Pretty strong words from the Baltimore quarterback there, especially considering he's throwing his weight behind a coach who he only worked with for one season.

Particularly damning might have been Flacco saying that his "guess" is that Cam Cameron will take on "more of a role in the quarterback room." Perhaps it won't seem like that big of a deal down the road, but at the moment, it sure does seem like he's confused about the work his offensive coordinator's doing.

And that's something that will only become more problematic if the Ravens start slow in 2011, especially if it's on the offensive end.

Titans will happily take him off your hands. Maybe half the teams in the league.

Flacco 'not happy' over Ravens firing Zorn

I see a distinct pair of camps on this issue. In one camp the Flacco supporters are (rightfully) saying the real issue is in the play calling. I feel like that is pretty accurate. That's probably why they went with firing Zorn, even though he's not the play caller, he's involved in the play execution. This is a way of changing the system without totally revamping it. If it doesn't work out next year for the better, well you can probably guess who's head is next.

In the other camp, are the Flacco haters. What is with you people? Do you REALLY watch and understand football? Or is it just your excuse to swill beer and check out cheerleaders? SKERZ96: what is with you? Flacco is their WHITE MCNABB? How many playoffs do you want to trash here? They both win enough games to make the playoffs (which by the way only 12 out of 32 teams get to be in the playoffs) making both QB's a top 12 team QB each year. My 'fins would love to have that chance every year, instead we get to wait 'til next year again. Flacco is a player, every good QB has a weakness, EVERY QB that plays or played the game has lost a game or two, it's really a shame that that's all you get to focus on is the losses.
