Joe Flacco says he is not worried about helping Drew Lock, he is worried about winning

Joe Flacco sounded like a prick when he was asked about his rookie teammate Drew Lock. It almost sounded like Flacco was being a bully when talking about Lock.

Joe Flacco is not a very cocky guy, or an arrogant guy but he sounded horrible today when interviewed during the first day of Broncos OTA’s.

Flacco was asked about Drew Lock from the media members, and his answer was a little rough when you read it on paper.

“I got so many things to worry about,” Flacco told reporters. “I’m trying to go out there and play good football. I’m trying to go out there and play the best football of my life. As far as a time constraint and all stuff, I’m not worried about developing guys or any of that. That is what it is, and like I said, I hope he does develop. But I don’t look at that as my job. My job is to go win football games for this football team.”

His comment saying he is not worried about developing guys is kind of selfish. Flacco would go on to clarify his comments, but at first, it did not sound too promising.

“I’m not a selfish person, I don’t think,” Flacco said. “There are times where you have to be selfish. But listen, Rich Scangarello does such a good job in those meeting rooms.

“Drew is going to learn from listening to him talk, and then all of us getting reps on the field and seeing how we all do it as a collective group and as a quarterback. Listen, I hope he does learn from me because that means we’re out there and we’re slinging it around and having a lot of fun because he’s going to learn by watching us do it and watching us do it well. That’s how he’s going to learn the timing and all those things is to be able to see it on film and hear Rich talk about it with me and digest as much as possible.”

What do you think about Flacco’s comments? Do you think it is the right approach or is he acting like a prick? I want to know your thoughts.
