The Ravens are trying to turn a distraction into a punchline. In a week when Ed Reed's critical comments of Joe Flacco became the focus leading up to Sunday's AFC championship game, the two players lightheartedly exchanged words while heading out to Thursday's practice, according to The Baltimore Sun.
After walking past television cameras and reporters to get to the indoor practice field, Flacco turned to Reed and playfully said, "[expletive] you." That caused Reed to respond: "[Expletive] me? [Expletive] you."
Reed addressed the issue in a national conference call today, saying the team has moved past it. "He’s our quarterback regardless of anything.” Reed said.
