Ed Reed’s assessment of Joe Flacco Dan Leberfeld

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is having a mediocre season.

He has 13 touchdowns, 13 interceptions and a 75.3 quarterback rating through 10 games.

What does Flacco’s former teammate, Jets safety Ed Reed, think of his play?

“He’s a quarterback now – he’s been letting it fly,” Reed said. “From what I’ve been seeing all season, the ball has been being thrown. They ran the ball a good bit last week, getting back to the basics.

“Joe [Flacco] is growing. He is still a young quarterback with some years under him, but he’s going to be around this league for a long time because he has all the attributes of a great quarterback. I’ve always said that about Joe.”

In other words, he needs to play better.
