Sunday NFL Notebook: Flacco Angered By Zorn Firing

Just a couple of NFL notes for you today.

Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco is unhappy with the Ravens decision to fire quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn. He called it "an attack on me."

"I'm not happy about it, and they know I'm not happy about it," Flacco said. "Usually when you fire a position coach, it's because you're not really happy with how that position did.

"And when I look back on my season and our season as a team, I mean, we won 13 games. I felt like I had a pretty good year and you're firing the quarterback coach? It's kind of an attack on me, I feel like.

"I don't think it was a good decision. I'm disappointed, and they know I'm disappointed."

There has to be more to the story than we are aware of -- there always is. Angering your franchise quarterback, though, is not usually a good thing.

You wonder if Eli Manning would react this way if the Giants canned Mike Sullivan.

In case you missed it, somebody fired a bullet at Oakland linebacker Rolando McClain a couple of days ago.

Despite all of the NFL's ballyhooed focus on player safety, the NFLPA says injuries increased in 2010.
