Joe Flacco can stop any QB Jets controversy chats



Joe Flacco can stop any QB Jets controversy chats

Here’s how the signing of the Jets about Joe Flacco being a backup of Sam Darnold would work well: If Flacco made it work.

On paper, the acquisition looks like a perfect move as insurance for 22-year-old Darnold, which is something the team has not had for the past two seasons, with 0-6 with Darnold out of line. Flacco is also cheap – a one-year deal worth $ 1.5 million does not include incentives.

Flacco has made 171 NFL regular seasons begin, having a 98-73 win-lose record with 218 goals thrown in 141 interception. Even more important than that is the 15 playoffs starting with a 10-5 record, 25 touchdowns to 10 picks and the Super Bowl title.

So, the Jets will enter the 2020 season with the most experienced, experienced and accomplished reserve quarterback in the league.

The question is whether Flacco’s achievements, coupled with his desire to become a starter again, will be an asset or detrimental to Darnold?

Flacco, a former quarterback of Ravens and Broncos, spoke with reporters on Thursday on a Zoom call and said all the right things about wanting to help Darnold and do what he could to make the team better.

But 35-year-old Flacco, too, isn’t ashamed to admit that he still has a burning desire to start again. Aside from the end of his 11-year run in Baltimore, where Lamar Jackson began to take over the league in 2018, the start was all that Flacco knew in his career.

Did you hear the words “quarterback controversy” in the air?

Considering the Jets investment in Darnold, the third overall choice in the 2018 design, and considering that Flacco was 2-6 last season in Denver and out of neck surgery, the idea must not make sense.

And, if Darnold happened to find himself frightened by Flacco’s presence or looking over his shoulder at the first time he threw three interceptions in a game, then he might not be the midfielder that the Jets believed in the first place.

This is what the Jets and Darnold need for Flacco this season: Be like Josh McCown.

There was no bone in McCown’s body who considered himself a starter for Darnold, even in Darnold’s rookie season, and his desire to become a Darnold mentor was genuine. McCown is one of the selfless players you have ever met.

This is not a knock on Flacco, because he has never even met with Darnold or his new Jets teammate, and he may be the right mentor the Jets want for him for their valuable (hopeful) franchise quarterback.

But this is all up to Flacco.

“I fully embrace it,” Flacco said Thursday about his backup role. “This is where I am now. I love being in a team playing soccer in a certain capacity. It would be wonderful to get in there and get to know them and develop relationships with the team and do whatever I can to help the team get better.

“And in the process, help Sam with whatever he needs help – take his mind off something, tell him how I see things or how I’ve dealt with [something] in the past – on the soccer field or outside the soccer field. ‘

Asked if he still saw himself as a starter, Flacco said, “I still believe that I was an early quarterback, and you never know what the next three years will be like. I still have confidence and I still have the desire to do that. I don’t think there’s a reserve in this league that doesn’t have the aspiration to become an early quarterback.

“Right now … I know what my role is. Things were different last year. I am hurt and unwell. I know what it’s like not to be part of a team, because you really can’t get involved. In the role that I’m currently playing, I can have a good positive effect on the team. My role is to help the team get better and help the young quarterback see things as clearly as possible and help him on his way to becoming an old NFL quarterback. “

Of course, Flacco is his own person and it is important for him to be himself. But it won’t hurt him to at least be a little like Josh McCown. Because that’s the best for Darnold.

How well this works up to Flacco.

Portuguese missionary denounces ‘daily persecution and massacre’ in Congo



Portuguese missionary denounces 'daily persecution and massacre' in Congo

“There are persecutions and massacres every day” in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and the international community turns a blind eye to this, says Father Marcelo de Oliveira, a Portuguese missionary in the African country.

The chief administrator of Komboni Province Missionaries in the Democratic Republic of the Congo speaks in an interview Renaissancethat attacks are permanent in an area of ​​the country where “cobalt is a source of wealth.”

“There are persecutions and massacres every day, there are people who are tortured, people who are forced to leave their homes and forced to flee,” condemns a priest who has lived in the Democratic Republic of the Congo for 15 years.

The eastern provinces of the DRC, notably North Kivu and neighboring Ituri, have “lived for decades in a state of constant instability due to the presence of various armed groups.

Born in Mortagua, Viseu district, the missionary says that in the Congo “no one escapes persecution.” “Catholics, Protestants and sects are treated equally”, given that “the religious question does not affect the situation at all”.

The priest says that “the Church is being persecuted, but to be a Christian means to be persecuted.” “The Catholic Church, which has great weight in public life, which has a large number of Catholics, which, by vocation, denounces, tells the truth and strives to defend the rights of the people, of course, is not appreciated by the simple,” he emphasizes.

The world “crossed its arms” on the problems in Africa

The priest admits that the President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Felix Tshisekedi, is ready to fight corruption, but says that, on the one hand, the government is involved in the situation, and on the other hand, it is powerless to resolve it.

“The complicity is there to keep getting what they get from the stuff they sell and ship out of the country anyway,” he explains.

On the other hand, Marcelo’s father accuses the international community of doing nothing for the suffering people of the Congo and trying to “keep capitalizing on the wealth of the country” by sending “weapons to be able to keep up the unrest and thus keep on stealing easily” . .

“The Congo is a very rich country, and it is a bit strange that such a rich country is at the same time so poor. There is gold, diamonds, copper, cobalt, soil that could give twice a year, it’s hard to understand,” the missionary laments, and then accuses: “there are interests from outside (the international community) to be able to continue to benefit from everything rich, and so they keep sending weapons to keep the mess going and thus easily keep stealing.”

The missionary ensures that “when there is a problem in Africa, everyone folds their hands” and gives an example of the reluctance to find a cure for malaria, which “kills a huge number of people every day”, and now with Covid-19. 19 pandemic “the whole world plunged into disaster.”

The priest assures that “there are more people who die in Africa from malaria than those who die from Covid”, and rhetorically asks: “Who created a medicine to treat poor Africans? The problem of malaria after all this time?”

Marcelo’s father replies, “No one, it doesn’t matter, it doesn’t matter. Since we cannot profit from what we do, it is not important to make medicine, it is not important to help a country that will not repay us, ”he laments.

Pope ‘deeply wishes’ to visit Congo

In this interview with RenaissanceFather Marcelo Oliveira assures that “the population still expects that soon” the Pope will visit the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

He believes that “for people living in conditions of constant attacks, persecution, the visit of the Pope would be a moment of encouragement.”

First of all, because Francis planned a visit to the city of Goma in the eastern part of the country, “where he will be with some victims of violence, and, of course, these people may be a little disappointed.”

“However, the population continues to expect that he will be able to come to us soon,” he assures.

The priest confirms that the Pope “deeply desires to be and come” to the Congo to “know the reality” and acknowledges that “the celebration planned for this Sunday with the Congolese community at St. Parolina in Kinshasa “is a sign of such a will.”

“The Pope deeply desires to be and come, because I believe he has heard so much about the reality of the suffering of the Congolese people, and therefore he has a deep desire to be able to come,” he assures.

Francis’ trip to South Sudan and the Congo, scheduled for July 2-7, has been rescheduled for a new date to be fixed due to the Pope’s health.
