Buzzing News from Woj:

Joe Flacco thinks ‘Wildcat’ package makes Ravens look like ‘a high-school offense’

Don't expect to see a happy Joe Flacco if the Baltimore Ravens bust out the "Wildcat" offense again on Thanksgiving against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Why? He thinks they look like turkeys doing so.

Flacco was asked about the Ravens sprinkling in some "Wildcat" last week against the New York Jets, bringing in backup Tyrod Taylor to help spark a dormant offense, and Flacco's answers were brutally honest — and hilarious:

The guy has a point: Flanking Flacco out wide offers no value if the defense is prepared for Taylor's skills. Flacco is an offensive player the defense doesn't have to worry about, making it 10-on-11 football. The Ravens need more offensive weaponry, not less.

It's understandable the Ravens would dip their toes in that water. But if Flacco has his druthers, they'll throw that baby out with the bathwater. Like, immediately.
