Joe Flacco: Having a Super Bowl in New Jersey is ‘Retarded’

Uh oh. Before we even get to media day at the Super Bowl we’ve got a mild controversy courtesy of Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco who let slip the R-word on Monday.

It’s a good thing Joe Flacco gets paid for his right arm and not his mouth.

The Ravens quarterback made his first bad pass of the week when he used a derogatory term to rip the idea of next year’s cold-weather Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium in his home state of New Jersey.

“I think it’s retarded,” Flacco said at yesterday’s press conference before catching himself. “I probably shouldn’t say that. I think it’s stupid. If you want a Super Bowl, put a retractable dome on your stadium. Then you can get one. Other than I don’t really like the idea. I don’t think people would react very well to it, or be glad to play anybody in that kind of weather.”

Flacco, a breakout star of this postseason, made his remarks at the Ravens’ first pre-Super Bowl media session last night. The team arrived yesterday. Flacco surely will draw a big crowd at today’s Media Day interview session at the Superdome and will be asked about his remarks.

We doubt the players will suffer much playing outdoors during the Super Bowl. It’s the fans that’ll likely be fleeing inside during much of the pregame and halftime.

    I just happened to be in Times Square, not 30 feet away, when Mayor Bloomberg announced the Super Bowl in New Jersey schtick.
    Frankly, Flacco is right.
    What’s next ? Green Bay ?!?

    Yeah, off with his head for saying the dreaded “R” word. Yet Obama can diss the Special Olympics and everyone thinks he’s freaking groovy.

    Even referring to it as “stupid” is a thought crime. Appropriately it should thought of a double-plus ungood thing.

    Good thing he isn’t paying for the Pats. Then, it would have been “wicked retahded…”

    It’s also retarded that two New York teams play all their home games in New Jersey, but what are ya gonna do.
