Joe Flacco not happy with rookie's trash talk.

Quarterbacks are often the leader of their respective teams and that is certainly the case in Baltimore with the Ravens and Joe Flacco. So when rookie safety Matt Elam ran his mouth about Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson it was up to Flacco to deal with him.

You just kind of look at him and say ‘Dude, what are you thinking? It’s Calvin Johnson,’” Flacco said to reporters on Thursday, via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

Flacco’s concerns are understandable. The Ravens are fighting for the last playoff spot in the AFC and do not need a game to be any tougher because an ‘old guy’ feels the need to be a rookie in his place (Johnson is 28—real old).

Should Johnson have his eighth 100+ yard game Elam can always say ‘if I was covering him’ since at safety he’ll only see Johnson if he breaks one deep.
