Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco who hails from Audubon New Jersey thinks the idea of playing the Super Bowl in his home state is “retarded.”

"I think it’s retarded,” Flacco said at yesterday’s press conference before catching himself. “I probably shouldn’t say that. I think it’s stupid. If you want a Super Bowl, put a retractable dome on your stadium. Then you can get one. Other than I don’t really like the idea. I don’t think people would react very well to it, or be glad to play anybody in that kind of weather.”

Flacco made the remarks at the Ravens first pre-Super Bowl media session last night and will surely be explaining himself more today, both about his use of the derogatory term and his views on a New Jersey Super Bowl. Stay tuned.
