Others are like Jamie Dukes on NLFN and are still looking at Joe like its 09 or 10 seasons.
- Flacco has as many post season wins as Peyton Manning
- Flacco is tied with Joe Montana and Steve Young in post season history with 11 TDS and Zero INTS
- Flacco's records are too numerous to list in all seriousness.
The "ELITE" debate is stupid and meaningless= its a fool's debate because the debate is never quantified, the requirements for making the determination are never set and the guidelines are stretched, abused and broken to make an argument/point.
Joe is a SB MVP, a SB Champ and our QB....and will be for a long long time.
You left me off the Nice List
90% of us are accepting of Flacco. The hold-outs are more or less "sour grapes" posters who are jealous that a "blah" QB not named Matt Schaub won a ring.
Flacco's performance has underscored or highlighted Matt Schaub's lack of Big Game capabilities.
Jacoby's performance has done the same to Kubiak's player management and ineffectiveness at using the talent in ways that focuses on player strengths, i.e. "Letting the guys play and leaving the micromanagement at home." Once Jacoby landed on a team that didn't have a water-tight sphincter for a head coach, he becomes a new man all of a sudden.
So there's a few reasons why some Texans fans are not going to give propers to the Ravens. IMO, has less to do with lack of football knowledge and more to do with sour grapes AND a lack of reality in terms of how our team is woefully mismanaged by its HC.
