Ray Lewis told Joe Flacco: “You’re the General, lead us to victory”

After yesterday’s playoff win over the Broncos on the road, Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said that quarterback Joe Flacco has grown up.

“He grew up today,” Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis said, per the Baltimore Sun. “I told him, ‘You’re the General, lead us to victory, you lead us today.’ I’m just here to facilitate things, just lead us. To look in his eyes, he had something different about him today and I just wanted to encourage him. I’ve always been a Joe Flacco fan and always will be, but to watch what he did today was probably one of the greatest things I’ll sit back and remember.”

It seems like Flacco has a hard time playing good consistent football during the regular season, but he seems to always show up in the playoffs and elevate his play.
