Joe Flacco Happy w/ Performance in Preseason Finale | Eagles Press Conference

joe the collection of uh running backs here how much do they fit what nick wants to do on offense and the different weapons you can have yeah well listen i know that those guys are doing a good job i mean it’s yet to be you know we’re still pretty in pretty early stages here in in terms of how things are going to fit in and especially since we haven’t gotten into the regular season to see what we’re really going to you know really end up coming out of the season being good at but these guys are doing a really good you know they’re doing doing really good at you know picking everything up and and being as versatile as possible joe that throw to uh jj ortega white side you like you roll to your right you know just take us through that play with it just see where we look yeah we’re just running to basically two corner routes with some flats and trying to get out of bounds at the end of the half and pick up another chunk just a little bit closer um felt like the left side where i was looking wasn’t really working got a little bit of pressure was able to escape out right and then just that portion of the field was you know was open and he kind of felt that he turned up um and did an awesome job catching the ball and then getting into the end zone from there obviously i mean i think that was all him once the ball got in the air it was it was all him catching the ball and then getting those last 10 yards or whatever it was to get it get himself in the end zone for a touchdown that was huge i pointed a little bit but i think he was already turning up given that given everything you’ve done in your career joe like what is your juice level for a preseason finale it’s funny i i think people probably see that they see you know guy in his mid-30s playing in the last preseason game they probably think oh he just he’s just out there hanging out playing football you know just playing a game but no i mean i’m sitting in the hotel today getting myself ready just like i would any other game um you know especially we haven’t you know obviously still we haven’t won in this preseason and it’s nick’s first job as a head coach and this first you know a new staff so you know i’ve been there before and you know these guys want to get a win so these games are these games are still important some of the guys you’re out there with are obviously trying to to make a roster sometimes some of them for the first time how much do you put on yourself to to get yeah that’s what i’m saying i mean that that’s why you cannot take any games any plays for granted they all count as nfl football games and and guys lives or and livelihoods are always at stake guys livelihoods are always at stake so you want to be a guy that can help those guys achieve whatever they want to achieve and and not not kind of weigh them down so so given that given that you wanted to get a win what like what was the reaction after the win that game ended that was all good it was all good i mean everybody was excited and and listen there was a lot of really really cool plays out there that out there today so i think coach sirianni was excited for everybody and just really proud of how hard we played and and and and all that around a long time is there is there a right or wrong approach to the preseason and whether you’ll play your starters even in the final game like the chiefs of the night or like the way you guys have handled it here yeah listen i i i it’s tough to say there’s probably no right or wrong way it’s probably we all sit there afterwards and if something bad happened or something good came from it six weeks down the road you know you realize oh maybe it’s because they played their preseason their guys in their last preseason game where something bad happened it’s like why why were they doing that you know so i think it’s one of those things that we can all kind of look at you know whether the term depending on what happened and give our critiques of it or our applause for it so just one of those things you got to do what you feel is right with what your team has and how much they’ve played before and all those things and uh just stand by your decision about the way you played and just came through the proceeding oh yeah yeah it’s tough to kind of answer questions about yourself but uh listen i was excited to get out there today and and be able to move the ball down the field and score some points so that was a lot of fun joe uh playing with the second team offensive line throughout the summer what did you learn about your offensive line depth uh heading into this year oh you could tell pretty quickly that we have a bunch of guys up there that can play football you know they’re not just big guys that can move and block but they understand the game and um that’s you know nobody you can’t see that necessarily on tv or you know or or if you don’t really necessarily know exactly what you’re looking for but a lot of the guys up front have you know really good football iqs they just have football sense they know how to play they know how to you know where to go naturally and things like that and i think that that’s really big at every position but when you can get a group of offensive linemen that can do that well it just takes your team to the next level joe the next time you play it might need to be a situation you don’t expect coming in cold something like that i i guess from from now going forward what do you do to prepare for that type of scenario right listen i i mean obviously before last year i hadn’t had a lot of experience with that and it is different you know you have to make sure that you attack you know the early parts of the week just as if you were the starter even though you’re not going to be able to get the reps because the biggest thing is making sure that you feel prepared going into the game without getting the reps throughout throughout the practice week and that’s just nothing to be taken lightly you have to you know you have to work your tail off and and approach it the right way and as long as i think that’s the biggest thing for me as long as i do that during the week which i know i will then i can go on into sunday feeling confident that i’m prepared and if something happens then yeah that’s what you’re there for coaching joe you touched on the running backs at the beginning of this when you stay under kenny there that second drive guys man you put me on the spot it’s it’s tough for me to kind of listen we had some room out there to run i think our alignment did a good job and i think those guys hit the hole they didn’t hesitate they went i know on one of those i scrambled um you know i was looking for my receiver and i scrambled to the left and he did an awesome job showing up for me getting you know getting my the attention of my eyes kind of grabbing me and giving me a spot to go with the ball and that was a big play to kind of move the chains and keep going so i think he’s starting to kind of get his legs underneath of him out there and feel confident about just making decisions quickly and going and trusting his feel and i think he was able to do that today
