Maybe its because I am a fan of the Ravens, but I cannot understand the lack of respect for Joe as a QB around the league.
Des he throw for 5000 yds? No. Does he throw for 50 touchdowns? No. Did he win? Yes.
There. Fixed it for ya. Give Stevie Wonder an M-60 and point him down range and eventually he'll get a bulls eye.

(sigh) Again, Flacco's Jersey is Purple not Red.
-His hair is dark not blond.
-His number is 5
-His name is spelled F-L-A-C-C-O
and not M-O-N-T-A-N-A
and is pronounced /Flah/Koh/
and not Mahn/Tah/Nah.
You're not comparing "apples & oranges", you're comparing blueberries and watermelons.

has played in THREE Superbowls
and won two
of those. Franco Harris
played in FOUR
and was on the winning team for all four
. Joe Flacco has played in one and was victorious in that one. You should be PROUD of him and have every right to be, but the one win
makes puts him in the same league as Doug Williams and Jim McMahon
unless he lucks up a second time. I would have included Steve Young, but given Young's regular season career stats the comparison would be an eggregious insult to the Hall of Famer.
Your team was good (and incredibly lucky) and won the big one dude, but the post Superbowl jubilation (and obvious drug binge) that made your front office think that Flacco is worth more than Both Manning Brothers, Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers AND Tom Brady
will bite such a huge chunk out of your team's butt this upcomming season I'd be surprised if they MAKE the playoffs.
