A day after Joe Flacco compared the Ravens’ offensive wrinkles to that of a high school team, coach John Harbaugh wasn’t tipping his hand in reacting to his quarterback’s criticism.
Flacco made his feelings clear Tuesday about his dislike for the wildcat offense and lining up as a wide receiver, and the Baltimore coach appeared uncomfortable in addressing the sixth-year signal-caller’s words, instead wanting to focus on Thursday’s prime-time meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
“My reaction would be my reaction. I’ll just leave it at that,” Harbaugh said. “One thing about Joe — and I think any great player — is they want the ball in their hands. And he’s always been that way. He’s always felt that way. I want him to have the ball in his hands.”
Perhaps the most interesting development from Harbaugh’s response on Wednesday came when he was asked whether Flacco’s words would impact whether or not they run the novelty formation in the future.
The quarterback said he didn’t anticipate the Ravens running the wildcat formation much after sharing his feelings with the coaching staff. Harbaugh acknowledging liking that Flacco is willing to speak out with conviction without wanting to expand on the matter, but he made it clear that the wildcat offense will remain a possibility moving forward.
“We’re going to do everything we can do to move the ball offensively,” said Harbaugh, who acknowledged the need to way injury risk whenever Flacco isn’t lining up at quarterback. “We’ve got guys that can play that we’ll put on the field in different spots, wherever we feel like we need to, and all of our guys support that.”
