It's the same as saying "best QBs in the league" After such a statement, you make your case. Around here, you can't use wins, & you can't use stats. The only thing that counts (since Schaub has done everything else) is wins in big games. That makes Flacco elite.
Totally agree- it is opinion driven. ESPN tried to eliminate all doubt wit their QBR formula: it works to a degree but when you have a person 'weighing' plays as to a degree of difficulty, like in diving or gymnastics, it becomes subjective not OBJECTIVE.
Yet even Wins are subjective; was it defense scoring, a special teams play or a Running Back's all world performance?
Again, I could care less about 'elite'....I care about Wins....Flacco is our guy...and we have another Super Bowl trophy...
