If we get that kind of performance from our defense, our WRs, & hopefully Arian, we'll win a Super Bowl. Expecting Matt to win one, or Flacco for that matter, with no help from the defense, Special Teams, or his offensive play-makers is just unrealistic.
The game vs Denver in the playoffs was a good example of Joe and his play.
No QB literally wins a game by himself. Flacco won a game today by sacking up with only 1 pass catcher from last year and crapping run game- ST and Defensive pick 6 not withstanding.
But I will say this- maybe we should say "Doesn't fold under pressure and does his job" instead of "Puts a team on his shoulders"???
