Ray Lewis saw a different look in Joe Flacco's eyes. But Torrey Smith said he was 'blank.'

Watching the replay last night, and when 11 took the opening kickoff in the 2nd half to the house, they cut to Joe. I thought I had seen him smile on Saturday during the actual broadcast...so I needed to double check that image. Lo and behold, as they cut to the Ravens sideline, there was Joe, smiling.
It was like - ok, do what you do.
But you aint flustering me, and you aint gonna win

Joe shows fire when he wants to, but I am with Torrey, I'd rather see his blank face under pressure. After all, he is "Joe Cool"!!!

This is the year of Joe! All the adversity he has faced from all over including from fans ( I began to doubt him too during the skid), he has risen like the phoenix! If he can win the next game and take us to the SB, he will have legitimately earned the status of being elite! I think here in Baltimore, he must already be considered 'semi-elite', because without his heroics, we stand no chance of winning at Denver - none at all!

If he does the same thing next week and puts together a string of 3 games where he is the sole reason we win, and in doing so slay the likes of Manning and Brady, it is over! People then will start scoffing at people who question whether Joe Flacco is elite!!!!!!!!!!! Go Joe and Go Ravens!

At one point it looked like he was singing or humming to himself -- whatever works to stay loose and warm.

Joe showed a ton of emotion on saturday and at the games he does. I have seen him throw his helmet throw gatorade cups smile laugh chest bump etc. On the field it would be bizarre to see him laugh etc...You could tell that he was confident and he was determined thats why you need in a qb.

I think its funny how everyone want Joe to be a certain way, when are we gonna realize Joe is Joe. Hes Joe Flacco the Franchise QB and the soon to be SB winning QB for our Baltimore Ravens.

Keep up the good work, Flacco. You will be the difference maker in New England. By the way, how much more comfortable does Joe look now that Caldwell is calling plays?

I enjoy the Joe Face. His calm demeanor can throw off opposing defenses when they realize they can't rattle him. Joe gets it done. Eight more quarters until glory!

I remember about a month ago, we all wanted Joe out of here, but i think the best trait about Joe, is that when he plays bad, or makes a mistake, he puts it behind him. That is what makes QB's great. You have to forget about the last throw, or the last game, and focus on what is ahead. It's good that he doesn't show emotion in a way, cause if he acted angry or yelled at people, then that could bring the whole team down. It's better to just let it take care of itself. Flacco has everything you want from a QB, and i think confidence is his best trait. He's good, and he knows it.

i never doubted joe cool for one minute ever since he was drafted, i knew the problem was CAM when he was here, and pass protection, and look at the O-line and new wrinkles that caldwell brought to the offense vs. then, no qb can have any success without protection and time to pass. what i liked about joe now he's now moving around in pocket to avoid pressure and buy more time to throw the ball, which back then was usually a sack, when cam was around

I have always thought Joe is cool the way he is. Just glad Caldwell seems to think the same thing, and if Ray thinks Flacco is cool who are we to disagree.

Did these people not see joe jumping up and down when ray lewis made his last intro at m&t. he show emotion after he throws touchdown passes. was that not emotion after he threw the 70 yard touchdown in denver? i seen him running down the field celebrating.

Let's try not to put him on a pedestal now. I just don't think that does him any good and he's doing just fine being viewed by everyone as the guy who can't beat the golden boys. Let him be, then we can throw rose petals at his feet during the Super Bowl victory parade!

Here's a comparison of two "faces" on the Ravens:

1) Joe Flacco; yes, we all complain sometimes when we see that blank face. I myself have said, "c'mon Joe get mad show some emotion" when things aren't going good, or "smile joe, get excited about that great pass you threw" when things are going good. In truth, Joe shows plenty of emotion. Ever see his celebrations AFTER a great play? Joe keeps an even keel when he's playing the game and celebrates AFTER he executes. In other words, the guy doesn't get very rattled and he ends up winning more than losing as a result. This is exactly the kind of QB we want. This is how he is and it works well. Nobody can deny his success in all of his seasons so far. I wouldn't want anybody else behind center. Joe has a very short memory when it comes to both his sucesses and his gaffs. He executes in each game with a consistant demeanor.

2) Billy Cundiff; I like Billy Cundiff, but i'm also glad he's not our kicker any longer. We all know about the AFC championship game last year. Well of course that had to hurt him emotionally and that's reasonable. Apparently, he has a long memory. Remember the game this year that was given to Justin Tucker? Billy Cundiff was obviously upset about that some of his emotions were anger and fear. Anger over the situation, and fear of losing his job. You could see this in his face on the sideline, and his comments in his interview when he said he would take his services elsewhere.
These emotions that Billy had, in my opinion effected his performance, and the better kicker won the job and we are lucky to have Justin Tucker. Had Billy been more like Joe Cool, and had his memory been shorter, and had he seen any given day as only that day, i'm sure that he would have been better off and had a better chance. He then went to Washington and performed horribly. I believe that this was a result of his state of mind, his memories, and his emotions. These very factors led this guy into a state of inconsistency. I guess he's just not the same kind of guy as Joe Flacco. In truth, he possesses the skills to be a really good kicker and I hope that he can somehow get his head straight and I wish him good luck. I think it's going to be hard for him.

So if we take the two examples above, each one has an important job,, lets say that they were both QBs for the sake of argument. Who would you rather have?

Joe is Joe. There's no changing that calm, cool, and relaxed attitude. I feel like Caldwell is bringing out a more confident side in him.

As an admitted critic of Joe Flacco, I can now clearly see that Joe's catalyst was Cam Cameron. Now that Cam is gone zjoe is being unleashed. I think we were all just waiting to see what it was apparent that he could do all along. Can't believe Cam held him back all this time..

Remember when Trindon Holiday scored his second TD and the camera cut to Joe and he was laughing?

ICE COLD.
