'Flaccoing' the latest indignity for the Ravens' quarterback

Forget "Tebowing" if you already haven't. Now there's a new mocking pose making the rounds and it's being called "Flaccoing" after a certain struggling Ravens quarterback who's taking major heat from the fans and media in this town.

Yes, the image of a disconsolate Joe Flacco sprawled face-down on the M&T Bank Stadium turf  after giving up that pick-six in the Ravens' 34-17 loss to the Denver Broncos Sunday is now going viral.

And while it's not as ubiquitous now as the prayerful, elbow-on-one-knee "Tebowing" pose used to salute -- or make fun of -- New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow months ago, it could catch on in a major way with Ravens fans, especially if the team keeps losing.

It's just another indignity for the reeling Ravens and their fifth-year quarterback, who's had a tough run of recent games and is looking for a big new contract from the Ravens -- another thing that's drawing the fans' ire.
