I don't think Flacco is in the big game without Torrey Smith. Probably not in the play offs.
The Ravens showed up. Top to bottom, 22+ guys showed up in January & won a championship. It wasn't just Flacco. Bolden made some amazing catches. Pitta showed up at the right time, the OL was excellent. Ray Rice kept them on schedule.
We're not saying Matt needs anything any other QB doesn't need. The Patriots run game, receivers, & defense let them down & they lost the AFC Championship game. They didn't have Shane Vareen stepping up, or Welker with 100+ yards in the first half.
True, Brady, Brees, & Rogers makes their guys look better. But Brady, Brees, & Rogers aren't the only guys winning Super Bowls.
