Steve McNair, Kyle Boller, Chris Redman.......those three names right there cement the fact that baltimores front office blows it on offensive players more than hit it out of the part.

As for the other arguement going on in this thread, I beleive that the people that are saying that the team could have had the same success if they had smith in there are right. Flacco did nothing to show that he was the elite qb, what he did was not lose games for them, which is fine, Trent Dilfer won a superbowl with this same team playing the same way.

Nobody is saying he's a great QB. What's being said is that he's the starter, and some of us think he's earned it. Find the posts where people are hailing Flacco as HOF material. This is the kind of hyperbole that I have a problem with, when it's either completely trashing someone without actually knowing what you're talking about, or making it sound like an argument that is not even remotely being made is being made.

Try reading the post to which I was responding before you quote me next time. The post to which I was responding was a sarcastic "Of course," response to a post that any number of qb's could have achieved the same result as Flacco and that his season was nothing special. My post, in which I showed, via just about every relevant passing statistic for NFL quarterbacks, that Flacco had what could be described (at best) as a very mediocre year and actually showed himself to be worse than the average NFL quarterback, supports the notion that any number of NFL QBs could have achieved the same result as Flacco and that his season was nothing special.

In short, I was not attacking a post claiming that Flacco is HOF material or one hailing Flacco. Rather, I was refuting a post claiming that Flacco had something more than a season which any number of NFL QBs could have achieved.

Next time, try reading my post before you set up some strawman argument in a vain attempt to discredit it. In conclusion, with respect to the bold above, Mr. Pot, meet Mr. Kettle.

FWIW - Ray Lewis was on sports talk radio in Atlanta today saying that he feels Flacco is the best QB he's played with, can be at Top 5 AFC QB, will make the Pro-Bowl within 2 years, and was the right draft pick. Honest to gods truth.


Lewis also mentioned he was looking forward to an off season of relaxation with his family and no accusations of murder.

I'm intrigued to hear what the Flacco fans have to say about this.

For all the pub that Flacco gets, he sure hasn't done much on the field so far this year. In addition to basically costing his team the game yesterday (4 picks in a tight game), he's led them to a whopping 10 points in each of the Ravens' first two games. Put a competent QB on that Baltimore team, and they'd be the best team in the NFL.

I know that defending Joe Flacco isn't the most popular thing to do in this thread -but I'll bite the bullet anyway.

He has faced what might be the two best defenses in the league in Games 1 and 2 this season, I think Ray Rice has been more disappointing than Flacco.

Ehh, the bengals didn't exactly stonewall the patriots offense. The jets may end up being pretty good though.

The Steelers are on line 1:

1. In week 1, the Steelers won with their third string QB, and gave up 9 points to a team that scored 41 in week 2.

2. In week 2, the Steelers won again, this time with their third and fourth string QB, despite the fact that their offense only had 127 total yards, and their QBs combined to go 9/17 for 43 yards.

Joe Flacco blasts cold-weather Bowl

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco didn't mask his feelings Monday when he was asked about the NFL's championship being decided next year at MetLife Stadium, the first outdoor Super Bowl at a cold-weather site.


"I think it's retarded. I probably shouldn't say that. I think it's stupid," he told reporters after the Ravens arrived in New Orleans for Sunday's Super Bowl. "If you want a Super Bowl, put a retractable dome on your stadium. Then you can get one.

    Then no one will go. I guess we'll just have to wait a year to see if you're right.

    Yeah, because that's exactly what I said. :roll1:

    They could play the SB anywhere in the States and it'll sell out. That doesn't mean having it in bad weather is a great idea.





    Oh, that's right. Joe Flacco said it. He plays for the Ravens. Ravens suck. Ravens = bad. Therefore, anything he says must be criticized. :lol:
