These types of things with QBs, it matters to the other 52 guys. Because he's the guy at the top. It starts and ends with him. Always has, always will.
This is just to follow up on vinny's take earlier. Which is something I co-sign and have felt since about early December 2012.
What we need is a QB who has to have a dynamic year to get a big deal. That likely won't' happen for another 2+ years now. Awesome.
Except like people already posted, Flacco turned down the contract that the Ravens offered him.
So really, it's more like one locker room, way across the country, is pretty excited that their leader wants more money.
