Definitely not top 5 money. The fact is, he cannot carry this team on his back. He cannot overcome weaknesses in the o-line. The play calling is horrendous, but it appears to me that Flacco agrees with this pass happy approach. If Flacco wants to have a long career with the Ravens, he should accept a reasonable deal and stop clamoring for "respect" in the form of money. Anyone can see that he's not a top 5 QB. Top 5 QBs have terrible games once in a while. That's once or twice a season, not four times a season. Get rid of Cam, and use the franchise tag on Flacco if he won't accept a reasonable deal (or let him test the market and see that no one is giving him top 5 money). If he looks better under a different coordinator, maybe reconsider. But right now he doesn't seem to be able to overcome deficiencies; I am hoping that it's due to Cam's ridiculous play calling.
I have been supportive of Flacco since his rookie year, but his attitude and his apparent desire to get as much money as possible out of the Ravens FO is annoying.
I agree with this 100%. People have been clamoring for Cam to let Joe have the helm and to evolve with the NFL and be a pass-happy team and looks what happens when we do.
Joe can NOT carry the team on his back, our defense goes down and he cannot help them by keeping the offense on the field, despite separation or not. Use you're legs and extend the play Joe, isn't that why you have them?
Our running game is THE focal point of this offense and it should stay that way. We have done HORRIBLE with less run plays and more passes and Houston has seen that over the years and took a page out of our old book and showed us how to execute it like how we used to.
Schaub isn't even that great of a passer yet he looks like he outshines Flacco despite having his best WR locked down almost every game. Flacco is on the same level as he is and I think he should get paid the same.
