While on the sideline with his teammates as the Ravens' kick-coverage team lined up with 4 seconds to play in the game and Baltimore holding a 34-31 lead, Flacco told tight end Dennis Pitta to run onto the field and tackle the San Francisco 49ers' Ted Ginn Jr. if he got into the clear.

"Why can't you (go tackle him)?" center Matt Birk asks Flacco after the quarterback barks the command.

"I will," Flacco said. "I'm going to."


That's funny. Trying to get other guys to do his hypothetical dirty work. Sportsmanship means nothing when money is on the line apparently.

Hey I mean win at all costs, right? This might be the smartest thing Flacco has ever thought of.


Edit: except the ref's could have ruled it a TD anyway. Silly Flacco.

Man, that woulda been a hell of a way to end a super bowl. An awarded TD on an unsportsmanlike play.

I just saw this and I'm curious what would have been the repercussions.

Again, he PROBABLY was joking, but what would have happened if this occurred? Didn't a jets coach like five years do something similar to this?

I wonder if it would have been a TD or a 15 yard penalty and a re-kick.

None of you have ever played sports lol.

If there was a mic on the sideline at the end of any intense sports match, you would hear poo like this from even the coaches, sometimes worse.

I would've said the same damn thing.
