WADE PHILLIPS on challenges that Ravens QB Joe Flacco Presents

“Yeah, Flacco obviously took them to the Super Bowl. He played tremendous in the playoffs and he’s a guy that they can out it on his shoulders. He’s proven that. He’s one of the elite quarterbacks in the league and became the way because he earned it. There were questions about (him). Of course, there were questions about (John) Elway) and that kind of thing. There were questions about him, but there are no questions now. That guy’s a heck of a quarterback.”


WADE PHILLIPS on running back Bernard Pierce

“He’s a good back. He’s come in and I think he’s averaging 90 yards the games he’s come in and played the full game for Ray Rice. Ray Rice is a great player certainly. If they don’t have him, they’ve got a good replacement.”


WADE PHILLIPS on if the Ravens change things if Ray rice is in the game

“Not the run game. I think the pass game is probably affected a little bit more. Ray Rice is such a great player. You can out him out of the backfield and he can run routes and he runs them like a wide receiver. They lose a little bit there, but the running game, they’re really strong with the big fullback and the power offensive linemen, and the pay action stuff is where they make a lot of big plays anyways. If they can run the ball and do play action, they’re still in their same offense.”
