My point is this.... While Flacco doesn't suck as much as he is percieved to, he's nothing special either.
You could argue that til the cows come home- it doesn't cchange the fact that over his first 5 yrs, Flacco has accomplished something that may never be duplicated: Most wins by a QB, and most road playoff wins by a qb---EVER.
Sure he benefitted from a solid run game and defense his first few years; so did Sanchez. So did Alex Smith last year. So did Cutler. Romo. Cassel in '10.
But what Flacco has done over the last 2 years is pretty remarkable- his 12 Tds and 0 INT (with just 1 fumble) this year and flat out beating Luck, Manning and Brady show that Joe has arrived. and that he is better than Schaub.
