No one we know expected the Ravens to have the perfect season. But after a season-opening win over the Steelers, most didn’t expect the Ravens to get beat up by the Titans in Week 2, either.
While it’s left some to rehash which week we saw the real Ravens, QB Joe Flacco takes exception to the idea his team needed a wake-up call to get back on track.
“I mean, yeah, it was a tough loss, and we didn’t play up to par, to the level that we would like to,” Flacco told “Around the “League” on Thursday. “But, I don’t think we’re a team that needs a wake-up call. I think we went in there, we had a great week of practice, we knew what we had to do. We just didn’t get it accomplished. We didn’t play well enough. I don’t think we need a wake-up call.”
Expectations in Baltimore are no doubt high after three consecutive playoff appearances. But if the Ravens didn’t get caught in letdown mode — as Flacco suggests — then they simply got beat by a team many don’t consider a contender.
