The always much maligned Joe Flacco yesterday merely became the first NFL quarterback ever to lead his team to a playoff win in each of his first five seasons in the league. :thumb:
Weenieworld continues to promote the lie that quarterback is a position of weakness in the NFL, when it is a position of strength, certainly deeper and all-around better than any of the black dominated positions on offense and defense, even going to the extreme of calling it "barren."
ESPN's John Clayton and Chris Mortensen believe impending free agent Joe Flacco could command over $20 million per season in his new contract. "He's now made a case for $20 million a year," Clayton said on SportsCenter Monday. "And I think he's gonna try to hold to that. Last season what I was hearing was he was asking for about $17 million. ... (We'll) see if he can get over Drew Brees' contract. I think he can." Mortensen agrees that an annual $20 million is "not unreachable" for the Ravens' quarterback. It would be a ludicrous sum of money for a player with Flacco's solid but unspectacular regular-season rÃ©sumÃ©, but his dominating postseason and barren state of the QB position around the league have left him with leverage to spare. If Flacco is intent on playing $20 million hardball, the Ravens may opt to slap him with the $14.642 million franchise tag.
he came from a small school and Baltomore really has been known for their defense the last decade or so. The man will never get any love from the media or from even the sober fans I imagine.
No matter what the DWFs or media say they can never change the fact that his TD:INT ratio during his Super Bowl run was 11:0.
