Ravens head coach John Harbaugh and quarterback Joe Flacco weren’t crazy to hear that Matt Elam called Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson old.
Harbs on Elam: "I don’t appreciate it. It doesn’t help us. You get a guy like Calvin Johnson all fired up, that’s really not the idea."
Joe Flacco on what Matt Elam after CJ comments: "You just kind of look at him and say 'Dude, what are you thinking? It’s Calvin Johnson.'"

I can’t think of any other reason than that Elam felt like he had to hype himself up for this week’s game. I think he’ll end up regretting his statement.
