    Default Joe Flacco: Zorn firing is "an attack on me"

    Updated: January 30, 2011

    Joe Flacco upset with firing of QB coach

    ESPN.com news services

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is angry over the team's decision to fire quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn.



    "It's kind of an attack on me, I feel like. I'm not happy about it, and they know I'm not happy about it," Flacco said.

    Zorn was dismissed on Thursday after one season with Baltimore. Flacco said he considers the move to be a personal attack on his own performance this season.

    Speaking Saturday before jumping into the icy Chesapeake Bay for the annual Polar Bear Plunge, Flacco said, "Usually when you 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," Flacco said.

    Upon firing Zorn, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he wanted to expand the role of offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. Flacco understands this, but says he would have preferred that Zorn had been a part of it.

    "I don't think it was a good decision. I'm disappointed, and they know I'm disappointed," Flacco said.

    The Ravens are a stupid team. Harbaugh can't or won't take blame so, blame the QB coach. It was the QB coach that lost the lead in the game against the Steelers.
    First off I never thought Flacco wasn't that good. He looked good compared to the other QB's the ravens had but, that's not saying much.

    The team must have little to no respect for Flacco if they don't consider for his QB coach his opinion let alone allow him to know his personal coach will be fired.

    Keep it up Ravens, your doing a good job.

    Le’Ron McClain chimes in on Zorn firing, Flacco reaction

    Posted by Mike Florio on February 1, 2011


    Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco made waves on Saturday, going on the record to state his disagreement with the team’s decision to fire quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn.

    On Tuesday, Ravens fullback Le’Ron McClain applauded Flacco’s move during an appearance with Jerry Coleman on FOX 1370 Sports Radio in Baltimore.

    “I’m glad he said something,” McClain said. “That was big on Joe, you see how much he has matured from his rookie year to now, him just making a statement on that. He had his coach’s back. I felt the same way that he felt. The guy that had his back and stepped [his] game up a little bit this year, a lot this year, and the way [he] threw the ball and go through all that, and get rid of [his] coach. [He] just had to say something. . . . I can see where Joe’s coming from.”

    McClain also said that he was surprised by the firing of Zorn, and that Flacco was “different” this year with Zorn’s involvement.

    “You could see it in his stats and how he played,” McClain said.

    McClain added that Zorn was a “great coach with us” and a “great friend to me.”

    It remains to be seen whether any other Ravens add their two cents on the matter. For now, the tally is Zorn 2, Ravens 0.
