    I can't think of a better time to experiment with skateboarding than 4 days before the biggest game of my life.

    Honestly, Ravens fans, do you still wonder why we question everything about him?

    Did either of you bother to read the article, which clearly indicates that it's satirical?

    "Kidding, but aren't you starting to get an idea of why the future Hall of Famer called out his quarterback to the press this week? All you need to know about Flacco's decision-making abilities can be gleaned from this story and from that handlebar mustache."

    I think the "kidding" part referred to Ed Reed being his neighbor.

    Hmmmm fair enough. There are other articles that substantiate the skateboarding. That's pretty funny.

    What a moron. I can see an abysmal performance from him on the way.

    I think it's a judgment/focus thing. Why would he jump on a skateboard now of all times? As far as I know, Brady isn't trying his hand at juggling chainsaws.

    He was trying to approximate what it might feel like having mobility in the pocket.

    He said on NFLN yesterday that he's never rode a skateboard before, so he wanted to see if he could make it down his driveway like 10 feet. This was during the middle of the season and he said one of his neighbors left a message on Ozzie Newsome's voicemail telling him to tell Joe to take it easy.

    Okay, slightly less dumb if it was mid-season. Slightly.

    In response, Joe Flacco voiced his displeasure with the lack of media coverage of his successful attempt at riding a skateboard.

    Unless he was at a skatepark or trying tricks, skateboarding isn't particularly dangerous, or challenging

    Or when he went surfing in Costa Rica or the time he almost drowned in the Charles river.

    People are killing Flacco because of the texans game but that texans defense is scary good!If the texans had Schaub, they win that game.I just hope that the patriots game is not Flacco's welcome party.
