38-year-old Joe Flacco looked like he had just hit his prime against the Jaguars. Just two games into his NFL return after a long hiatus, the QB is already in a sweet position to claim his 2nd Super Bowl. But a little while back, Flacco had already found his next job if he were to give up on football.

Flacco played a bossy 311-yard, 2-touchdown game to push Trevor Lawrence and Jaguars down. But he didn’t predict the season to be this exciting at the beginning. Although things have drastically changed in recent weeks, one surprising detail about his ‘audition’ really gives insight into what was going on in the QB’s mind.

Amid becoming the hot discussion of the NFL after the Jaguars game, one shocking insight has been revealed about Browns‘ QB Joe Flacco. Former football safety and InsidetheNFL host Ryan Clark recently revealed that Flacco had auditioned for a commentator’s role at the show.

Although he didn’t take up the role, he had his mind set on his next venture, maybe until recently. Starting the season from his couch, watching the NFL just like us, the Super Bowl XLVII MVP had little hope for football at 38 years of age. But DeShaun Watson‘s injury and untimely season exit paved the way for Flacco to reconsider things.

Nevermind the broadcasting audition, his Browns audition has been top-notch. But can he recreate the 2013 glory with a very similar Browns: a monstrous defense and an opportunity-seeking quarterback?

The Super Bowl XLVIII was more significant for the clash of two coaching superstars. Brothers, Jim and John Harbaugh, battled with the charge of the 49ers and the Ravens, respectively. But amid everything, Joe Flacco’s performance hit the 49ers like a truck. Flacco threw 287 yards for 3 touchdowns that earned him the Super Bowl MVP glory to add to the ring.

The current season, except for a 10-year-older Flacco, isn’t much different either. The Browns are known for their defensive prowess, led by Myles Garrett himself. The QB has enough firepower to push him through the postseason, and a defense feared by every other team. This is evident in their 8-5 run as well. Keeping trust in the QB, HC Kevin Stefanski has also announced that Flacco would be a starter for the rest of the season. Is this going to be a repeat of last time?

No one knows, but Flacco will try to keep the trust. Unless he decides to return to his exciting broadcasting journey anytime soon, a Super Bowl-winning campaign is his last resort for now. And the stars are maybe lining up for that.

My story of becoming an NFL writer is as interesting as my story of becoming an MMA practitioner. Coming from such a sport where athletes look to knock the brain cells off each other for a living, I liked the aggression that American Football had to offer. Before I even realized it, I religiously started following American football, picking up the most challenging in-depth write-ups.
