Although they were teammates for five years, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco rarely understood what the 13-time Pro Bowler was saying during his emotional speeches.

“I love Ray, and I love how he always spoke from the heart, but if you listened to those speeches, a lot of them didn’t even make sense," Flacco told Kevin Van Valkenburg of ESPN The Magazine. "He meant everything he was saying, but I didn’t know what he was talking about 90 percent of the time.”

It's not the first time the Super Bowl XLVII MVP took a friendly jab at his Lewis' speeches.

Back in March, Flacco told USA Today that "there’s times where he says some stuff and you’re like, ‘Man I don’t know what that meant, but I like how he said it.’”

Will Flacco understand Lewis' analysis on ESPN?
