Joe Cool has become Comfortable Joe. Throughout the years, there is one picture of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco etched in the minds of every fan. It's the one where Flacco sits on the bench after a failed series with a blank look on his face. He talks to no one, and doesn't even look at game photos. As teammates walk by, Flacco continues to stare into the abyss. That doesn't happen any longer. Because of a new coordinator, position coach, blocking scheme and running game, Flacco's completion numbers and passing yards are up and his interceptions and sack totals are down.

Few players can torment a fan base like quarterback Joe Flacco. Sunday afternoons in Baltimore during the NFL season have become an elevator ride of emotions with No. 5. We cheer him. We boo him. We love him. We hate him. Sometimes he has the arm strength of Vinny Testaverde and other times he has the brain of Kyle Boller. The suggestion here is for Ravens fans to sit back, fasten their seat belts and get the cat out of the room so you don't kick it. And, just enjoy the ride because no one knows where it's going to end. Despite playing a poor first half Sunday in the season opening loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, Flacco almost rallied the Ravens from a 15-point first half deficit by throwing for 271 yards in the second half including an 80-yard touchdown pass to receiver Steve Smith with 5 minutes and 46 seconds left in the game.

SAN FRANCISCO -- She was a 40-something blonde, elegantly and expensively dressed for the inclement weather and occupying a front-row seat behind the San Francisco 49ers bench at Candlestick Park yesterday. Her hands rested on the shoulders of an 8-year-old boy as she rose, a symbol of cool California chic, to express her considered opinion on the events taking place before her."SEIFERT, YOU S !" she shouted. "YOU SHOULDA PUT IN JOE, YOU IDIOT!"Should have put in Joe Montana for Steve Young, the lady meant.

In Kansas City, Joe Montana won't even be No. 16 any more. Understand, the strangest part is yet to come. Until now we have dealt strictly in the hypothetical, the could-be's and the maybe's and the why-not's of the Life of Joe Montana. Going from the San Francisco 49ers is one thing. Gone, that is quite another.I had a dream the other night, not about Montana; but when I awoke I suddenly saw his name, for the first time, stitched on the back of a Kansas City jersey. It was -- how best to put this?

Remember a couple of summers ago when Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley said on national television that Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco would never win a Super Bowl “in this lifetime?” Even though Flacco was named the Super Bowl MVP in February after the Ravens won their second Lombardi Trophy, Woodley didn't back away from his comments in an interview with ESPN this week. "I don't take it back at all," Woodley told ESPN's Jamison Hensley, my former colleague here at The Sun . "As a player on any team, you're never going to say your rival is going to win the Super Bowl.

Mike Preston has taken every chance to knock Joe Flacco since he was drafted five seasons ago ("Ravens shouldn't overreact when it's time to pay Flacco" Feb. 25). He says it's not him, it's Jacoby Jones or Anquan Boldin who made the plays. Joe has to have "ideal conditions. " Did he ever look at John Unitas' offense with three Hall of Famers, or Joe Montana's offense with Jerry Rice and coach Bill Walsh? Every quarterback who succeeds has a great supporting cast. Mr. Flacco has outplayed Tom Brady three times in the last two seasons.

Success can change a person, but it probably won't change Joe Flacco. Only a few hours after the Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII and the quarterback was named the game's MVP, Flacco appeared at a news conference where he was presented the keys to a new 2014 Corvette Stingray. Flacco seemed bashful when he posed for pictures, almost embarrassed. "Hey, if you say there's going to be some kind of celebrity with it, I'm cool with that, but I don't know if I'll ever be comfortable with it," Flacco said.

Please stay home, Brett Favre. It's not that I would mind watching you play a little longer. Heck, I recently called you the fifth-greatest quarterback of all time. And you showed last season that you can still play at an elite level. No, I'm not asking because you did anything wrong. I'm asking because we, the sports media, need to be protected from ourselves. You see, for the past three NFL offseasons, we tried to sell newspapers and drive television ratings by speculating madly about whether you would retire.

The public address system had kept them busy with a medley of Joe's golden-oldie highlight hits. The honored guests, from the Mayor to Madden, proceeded to all lay palms at Joe's humble feet.L "One more year! One more year!" the audience began to chant.

It's probably just a coincidence that astronomers announced the discovery of an important new planet located outside our solar system this week, but I already was feeling as if I had been transported to some parallel world. How else do you explain the amazing groundswell of public support for Ravens backup quarterback Kyle Boller, who was considered the poster boy for all that was wrong with the team a couple of years ago? Let's take a look at the latest polling data and see whether we can put this situation into proper perspective: Recent political opinion surveys show President Bush with a 34 percent approval rating and Congress even lower at 22 percent, while Boller was the choice of 88 percent of respondents to a baltimoresun.

NEW ORLEANS -- They are two of the most significant quarterbacks to wear the fleur-de-lis, both of them representing in their own way the serial futility of the New Orleans Saints. One was the martyr to the early years - always undersupported, basically an organ donor to a franchise. The other was the perfect match in origin and temperament, but his Cajun spark never quite caught in the postseason. Archie Manning and Bobby Hebert are bearing happy witness to a new New Orleans football outlook.
