BALTIMORE (CBS Sports) – In the waning seconds of Super Bowl XLVII with the Ravens leading the 49ers 34-31, quarterback Joe Flacco had an idea: if San Francisco return man Ted Ginn looked like he was going to take the ensuing kick for a game-deciding touchdown, Flacco suggested aloud to teammates to “go tackle him.”

When asked if he was serious, the eventual Super Bowl MVP responded: “I don’t know, I mean, what else — they might be able to give him a touchdown on that, but I don’t know.”

“Hey, if he breaks it,” Flacco continued yelling, “If he busts it for some reason, go tackle him. I don’t know the ruling on that…”

Flacco attempted to explain the comments earlier this week, after signing a new $120 Million contract with the Ravens. Read his explanation from CBS Sports.
