On Wednesday, Ravens players and coaches addressed the media and delved into several topics, ranging from the growth of QB Joe Flacco to the play of the Texans to whether it is Super Bowl or bust this season. There were also some light-hearted moments discussing the Fu Manchu craze started by Flacco.
Among some of the highlights of the press conference were:
Ravens coach John Harbaugh on QB Joe Flacco: "Joe Flacco, as we've said, is our quarterback. He's the Ravens' quarterback. We think he's a great player, he's a great person and the best is yet to come.
Ravens LB Ray Lewis on the playoff run: "For me, as the leader of this team, it's to try to get a lot of these young kids a Super Bowl. That's it. For me personally, if we go do what we are supposed to do, then I walk up out of here with two rings.
Ravens QB Joe Flacco on the Fu Manchu craze he started: "People will get going with anything, no matter how crazy it is. That's not really my personality to understand that. But, you figured something was going to happen with it, good or bad.
"It's not really my personality to have something like this on my face, but you know, what are you going to do? Have a little fun, and see how people take it."
