A lot of us (well atleast I did) expected Flacco to go in and take control of the offense and put up a fight as our defense presumably took a downfall. Well our defense still looked bad...for me questions around our secondary mostly. And Flacco of coarse did not play up to par what so ever and it was his third straight week posting "average stats".

I knew at the end of the first half that people on here would start to bring out the "tyrod" chants and all the other flacco bashing comments. I would like to know the general consensus on Flacco. Like I said he has been in a slump the past three weeks except for the dallas game where he still only threw for 234/TD. But he didnt get it done today.

In my humble opinion I think every QB is entitled to a few ugly games, be it Brady Rodgers Manning every QB has their horrible game every once in a while. Hopefully Joe has a game to remember when we take on the Browns after the bye. I think we would really appreciate seeing Flacco go for 400 yards and a trio of touchdowns in a dominant performance against the Browns in a perfect setting for a blowout bounceback game.

I still think this is Flaccos team and has yet to truly take it over, but that is also becuase no elite qb in this league has a runningback like we do(and every team has a better offensive coordinator hahah) so we cant throw alot on a consistant basis. Down the longrun Joe will improve and start winning games for us.

I know stats dont necessarily win games or tell how skillful a QB is.

BUT just for the record Flaccos worst games this season

Loss VS Eagles- 22/42 232yds TD, INT

Win VS KC- 13/27 187yds 0TD, INT

Win VS Dallas- 17/26 234yds TD

Loss VS Texans 21/43 147yds TD, 2INTs

Dallas wasn't a bad game for Flacco or the offense

The others were very bad, though

His INTs were not his fault. And please, he had no time to throw. Thats not a crappy O-Line, its this years beatdown that every team gets.

My main problem is when Flacc gets hit couple times, he gets rattled pretty fast. Then he starts making dumb throws, and overthrowing open WRs.

Tyrod? Really?

I think what some were saying about Joe, Pro Bowl, MVP was laughable.
The guy is just a good QB, streaky at best.

No one said anything about Tyrod. Only the paranoid Flacco homers are.


My only concern is overpaying the average Joe. His not elite, yet we might be forced to pay him an upwards of +13mill for someone that wil never carry the team to SB.

I am still pretty set in the Flacco camp.
He played like crap today no doubt but he is far from alone and does not take all the blame.

Cam is trying to make Flacco into something that he isn't IMO. He's more of a Schaub QB ( a lot better than Schaub ) than a Rodgers / Brady / Rivers / Manning / Brees type of QB. Use him right and he looks like all world but when you don't use him right, he looks like he did today. Yea, the offensive line didn't help him but still.

very true; he looked scared, therefore his throws were inaccurate....

I only saw the second half and he looked pretty good then. Just didn't get any help in terms of pass protection or open receivers. And a lot of his misses could've been called defensive PI.

If they ran the ball more, it will allow for Flacco to regroup himself rather than the very next play putting him out there in the lions den again with him being rattled.

To me Joe is solid to above average QB at times. He has some glaring flaws though. His pocket awareness is among the worst in the league. If everything doesn't go right during a play, he will fail. O-line has to protect him wide outs must be open. What I'm trying to say is, he isn't a player maker at all when things break down. He will squirm in the pocket then get tackled. I also feel he chokes when the pressure is on him. He has some game winning drives, but in reality who doesn't. Plus Cam is the OC that's a double negative. We don't have anyone better than him on the team or in free agency next year, so we have to resign him.

Dallas was not a bad game at all. It's not just about yards. He was averaging over 9 yards an attempt, which is very good.

All of the road game have been bad.

Lol @ Matt Ryan being clutch.

Same. This would've been the year to test that theory. Unfortunately we will have to pay him first now.
