yeah, these Flacco butthertz posts on this site make me cringe. I like to think we are a group of smart fans...but then I read all that Flacco butthertz stuff. oye.

I honestly believe the Ravens will sign him to a long term contract and rue the day they did so. Only speculation on my part, and only time will tell.
"Flash in the pan"???

I went school in Delaware so am a Flacco supporter. He's more than a "flash in the pan". Is he "elite" using that term that many like to throw around? I don't think so. I think is a good/solid QB that had one of his better seasons this year on a very good team that caught fire at the right time.

I think many Texans fans might be down on him because they remember the thrashing the Texans gave him and the Ravens during the season. However that Ravens team was missing a LOT of key players. Had the Texans won homefield advantage I am pretty sure they would have been bounced by the Ravens in the divisional round and opinions would be different around here.

I recognize what Flacco accomplished in the play offs. But I also remember how he played in the regular season. Flacco is missing a level of consistency & I believe that is why so many of us are not on board with the Flacco worship.

We knew that if we get pressure on Flacco, he's going to struggle. We're able to get pressure on Flacco with some regularity & he struggles. It happened the last three times we played him.

We got pressure on Rogers, he ate our lunch. We got pressure on Brady he went home with our girl.

There's no doubt in my mind Joe Flacco won't better his 2012 regular season & his play in the regular season isn't close to the top QBs in the league. If they get to the play offs again, watch out. IF

I've got nothing against him. I love the NFL & there are particular players that I enjoy to watch play the game. I'm not interested in Joe Flacco until January.

He did what he did and he deserves credit for that. Sure love to see Schaub do that, even if he sucked the next year.

My first opportunity today to get on the board and seems that my Internet is messed up. I was checking for the latest on Vince Young, but the last page is switched from the Ravens thread. I've seen some strange stuff happen on my "smart" phone, but this is a first on the message board.

Young testified during a deposition in December that he "probably" signed some of the loan documents in the presence of a notary at a law office in Houston. But he said he had no need for a loan, never sought one and didn't have access to the proceeds.

Can't post a link because I'm on my phone but PFT posted a story about VY taking out a loan because he didn't have enough money to throw a $300,000 part for himself a couple of years ago. Man Vince, you've made it hard for even your biggest supporters to have your back.

It probably would've been worse since all his "peoples" live in Houston I imagine.

I honestly would like a documentary crew to follow Vince around 24-7 for his attempted comeback. Pretty much for the sole reason that there is a 100% chance of it being a real-life episode of Eastbound and Down.

Vince Young sent letter of apology to Jeff Fisher

After spending the 2012 season out of football, free agent quarterback Vince Young is attempting to draw interest from NFL teams this offseason. Young is working towards his college degree at the University of Texas and is scheduled to work out at the school's pro day on March 26.

Another part of Young's plan to re-enter the NFL was to apologize to Jeff Fisher, the current head coach of the St. Louis Rams who was Young's head coach with the Tennessee Titans for five seasons.

Full story
I'm not surprised by the story. Dude is broke and needs a job. And he's probably matured and coming to the realization that a lot of his troubles were self-inflicted.

What did surprise me is that VY is only two years younger than Matt Schaub. Vince will be 30 next season, Matt will be 32. For some reason, I thought there would be a bigger gap between their ages, not that it matters much.

Matt's receding hairline makes him look older than he is. The things Vince says make him appear younger than he is, like 6th grade level.
