http://deadspin.com/5982436/joe-flacco-was-ready-to-leave-the-sideline-and-tackle-ted-ginn-on-the-super-bowls-last-play

Quote:
How does a quarterback, helpless on the sidelines, deal with being on the brink of their first Super Bowl win? Tom Brady turned away, unable to watch. Eli Manning was giddy, probably planning to ride the Teacups over and over again. Joe Flacco? He was planning to cheat. Maybe he is elite.


Quote:
Flacco (jokingly, we think and hope) tells Dennis Pitta and Marshal Yanda that if Ginn breaks through the coverage team, they should run on the field and bring him down. He says he's willing to do it too. This would have been the greatest ending in Super Bowl history.


Quote:
Had the world been graced with the stunning sight of Ted Ginn streaking down the sideline, only to be swarmed by helmet-less Ravens off the bench, the officials would have flagged it and given the 49ers the touchdown anyway. And then Ravens fans, convinced that Ginn would have been chased down legally and would not have scored, would burn down Flacco's house, New Orleans, and indeed all of Earth.


Man as distraught as I would be if that happened I think I would still have had a good laugh about it.

This would certainly have been a sight to see. Imagine the chaos when all the 49ers rushed onto the pitch in outrage, not realising the TD would be awarded. The first Super Bowl to end in a mass brawl?

I wonder if he was getting set to go as he watched Ginn break those two tackles before Bynes hauled him down?

You could see Flacco on the sidelines and it didnt look like he was ready to go make a tackle

Pitta/Yanda/Birk's reaction when he tried to tell them to go tackle somebody was just priceless.

On another note, I hadn't seen a north-to-south replay of that final kick return until the Sound FX, and I was surprised to see how close Ginn got to breaking that. If he had gotten through Byrnes' tackle it was only Koch between him and the end zone, though Koch is a better tackler/more physical than your average punter.

Sam Koch making the Super Bowl-winning tackle would have just been too perfect.

Skip Bayless was criticizing him for it like it was serious.

Of course he did. Skip would fight with his shadow if he thought it looked Purple.

I thought it was hilarious. Laughing

Would he have actually ran out onto the field? Maybe, highly unlikely, but still possible... and I love that about him.

The media finally sees a little bit of emotion from Joe Cool and their collective heads explode.

That's the funniest bit of this whole thing. Nicole Zaloumis, on NFL AM, said "that's not dull!" about this, as though she was pleasantly amazed that Joe has personality.

He always has, it's just that no one's paid attention and they've taken his press conferences at face value. He's too deadpan for a two minute snippet of post-game analysis to show his sense of humour.

Having said that, I love how uncomfortable he was in the victory rally at M&T Bank, when he was basically shoved out to the microphone. That's the sort of guy you want as a QB, in my view. Someone who is just interested in getting games won and going home.

Less chance of the money he's about to get going to his head IMO.

I wanted to catch Suggs on First Take today but I didn't make it home in time. If you got a chance to see it, can you summarize?

Yea, I don't think it was serious. I think his exchange with Birk was the best.

Joe Cool can only keep his cool for so long.
