Flacco focused on winning, not mentoring Lock

Flacco focused on winning, not mentoring Lock

Elway did grant Flacco his wish by selecting Iowa tight end Noah Fant in the first round and Kansas State offensive lineman Dalton Risner in the second round before moving up to draft Lock.

Joe Flacco says his job description doesn't include grooming his successor, so he suggests rookie Drew Lock sit back and watch him work and ask plenty of questions - of offensive co-ordinator Rich Scangarello.

"I'm not a selfish person I don't think", Flacco told reporters. There are times where you have to be selfish.

"Rich does such a good job in those meeting rooms", Flacco said after practice on Monday. "I hope he does it well".

Could Flacco have gone through the motions and pretended like he's going to mentor Lock?

Amir’s World Cup in doubt after suspected chickenpox

Bulls lose services of another Bok
Steyn represented the Bulls in 124 games between 2008 and 2013 and is still the leading all-time points scorer for the franchise. Bulls CEO Alfons Meyer told Netwerk24 that Snyman will be unavailable to the Bulls throughout next year's Super Rugby campaign.

Doris Day, 97, dies
Day broke out of her girl next door image every now and then in an effort to shake things up and show a different side of her. She did some dramatic and more ambiguous roles too, but later wrote in her memoir that fans struggled to accept her in them.

Flacco is not on the roster to serve as Lock's mentor, though. Flacco gets paid to be a starting quarterback - not the quarterbacks coach.

"It's kind of Rich's job". The 49ers weren't calling it a rebuild, but that's what it was; journeyman quarterback Brian Hoyer was brought in to lead the QB room and Shanahan drafted C.J. Beathard in the 3rd round. That's how you can develop.

"I got so many things to worry about", Flacco said (h/t Pro Football Talk). "Brian was really good at helping them develop as players, and part of it is to insulate those guys so they don't feel the pressure of having to play, building their confidence up and letting them feel confident as a player in your system, in you organization, in their relationships with older vets". I'm trying to go out there and play the best football of my life. That is what it is.

"I certainly believe Eli does everything the right way behind the scenes and I certainly believe that's something a young quarterback can value from seeing, " Giants coach Pat Shurmur said before the draft. "My job as I see it is to go out there and play quarterback and win football games and that's what I'm trying to do". Mahomes has said multiple times that Smith was a great help. "He had a great season previous year, and being the person he is, he always was helping me whenever I did something he thought he could help me improve on".

Chiefs fans shared how thankful they were for Smith's openness before he was traded to Washington. He writes about baseball and has a quirky blog that augments The Star's coverage of area teams.
