Ray Ray Ravens

A Flacco Thread

437 posts in this topic

The last Flacco thread was shut down. Without a QB thread any team thread is not complete! Flacco pushed this team every drive in a game we could not win. The offense was the winning aspect of this game. RESPECT FOR THE MAN WHO HAS THE BALL THE MOST!!!! WE need to realize he is the center of the offense. LETS GO RAVENS!!!!!!!!

Just wanted to say this... the offense does NOT run through Ray Rice. It runs through Joe Flacco. Then, if he succeeds, it can run through Ray Rice. But it all starts with #5.

Joe was spot on today. Sure, he scared me a few times. He made plays, though. He made throws than few other QBs can make. He stepped up in the collapsing pocket. He moved in the pocket. He made small and big throws. He wowed me today more than ever.

The guy is going to win us a Superbowl one day - I don't know when, but he is a big game quarterback. I don't care about blowouts to Houston or a meaningless quagmire in Jacksonville or a loss to Charlie Batch. Those games didn't determine our seasons. With the season on the line, Flacco delivered. He's now reached the AFCCG in 3 of five seasons, had an opportunity at a 4th until a whole series of events (including his pick) derailed that, was a stripped pass from playing in a Superbowl against an opponent I think we had a great shot at beating, and now he just avenged the second worst loss of our season, to get an opportunity to basically replay last year's game and rewrite history a bit.

I think Joe easily could have put up 400 yards and a 4 TD pass if they didn't just overload rice with wasteful carries and let Joe pass the rock
[/quote]talk about overload. We had 32 first down snaps, 22 where runs. Roughly, I've had a few beers but that's how I counted it from espn stats. Even the announcers knew we were running every first down in the 2nd half.

We had six first down runs in the first half. So in the second half and ot, we had 16 first down runs.

Beginning to really think this comes from harbaugh

One of the commentators even pointed out, that we were constantly giving the ball to Rice on 1st down. We still won, but I hope Jim steps his game up against the Pats/Texans. We don't want get into Cam Cameron levels of predictability.

Joe certainly delivered in a huge game with everything on the line. He seems to play more confidently with Jim Caldwell as OC. As soon as the Super Bowl is over, I hope he will be given the contract he has earned. I am impressed with his durability.

Didn't understand it at all. I thought we'd at least continue to go deep a couple times in the 2nd half too. But I'd love to hear what Caldwell says about constantly running on 1st and 2nd down. Real head-scratcher. Could've sworn Caldwell got pangs of loyalty and wanted Peyton to win. lol.

Well, lets not forget, that he is new to this team, calls plays from the playbook he didn't draw up and just called 4th NFL game in his OC career.
In the end, it's save to say that Joe plays better without Cameron's playcalling, no matter if we keep Caldwell as our OC or get someone more experienced.

on that pass to pitta that was broken up there was single coverage on torrey, coulda been 6. Couple of missed passes and this wouldn't be so close. can't make the same mistakes next week. Must control time of possession.

Mike Preston, the only 1 of 7 Baltimore Sun's staff writers to pick the Ravens to win the game, gave Joe an "A" for today's performance:

[b] [size=5]Quarterback: A[/size][/b]

Joe Flacco threw some excellent passes and handled pressure in the pocket well. The two touchdown passes to Torrey Smith were placed perfectly and that heave to Jacoby Jones in the final seconds was more than Denver expected. [b]Grade: A[/b]

Joe is definitely turning into mr. January. I just dont get what it is with him in some of the regular season games. Some of his performances its so hard not to knock him and boo him and ill be tbe 1st to admit im guilty. After the pittsburgh and denver games at home i was so mad at joe. He did tbe same thing last
Year with his play in seattle jacksonville and san diego but man when joe gets in the playoffs especially against another great quarterback joe turns it up man. He makes me wana kill em in regular season but damn joe lights it up in the playoffs

It looks like Flacco has finally come of age. I have to give Caldwell credit for his playcalling which is off the charts better than Cam. Is it any room left on the wagon for me or do I have to walk? I thought Flacco would play well today and the Ravens would win. That aside from all my rants on Flacco this season the humble pie tastes great would anyone like some? :football:

Joe is stacking up good games and it's great to see.


Next stop AFC Championship!!

i know it seemed like every first down Dan Dierdorf would say "man the ravens are really predictable on first down rtunning nearly everytime". I was hoping for a big PA deep bomb but we stayed with the short power runs all the way to the field goal. That accompanied with the early on end-around seemed like the ghost of cam cameron haha

All that needs to be said. Just pay him. I can live with the regular season jibberish, the is he elite or is he not nonsense, because the man is a fire breathing dragon that eats lightning and craps thunder when it matters.

Swear I feel like I recognize so many people who doubted flacco early on this year and wanted Tyrod Taylor to play, who are on here ranting about how good he is. People doubting his skill, saying he is terrible and cant lead us to the promise land. Haha sure I have called Flacco out before.. But some people on here honestly need to really think about how valuable Flacco is to our team.

In the words of Ray Lewis 'Joe grew up today. I looked at him before we went down the tunnell and said Joe your are general now lead us to the promise land". Flacco just had the best game of his career against a top 3 defense and made every clutch throw and nearly played perfect. Flacco is our leader now and all the doubters can go be Pats fans.

Thats just it, once he gets to the superbowl he will pretty much have no more chips on his shoulder. Its funny some commentators were talking about Manning after todays loss bringing up the fact that he does struggle in the post season, he has made 2 superbowl appearances and has a ring, but still he had the opportunities to do much much more. Although Peyton is arguably the best regular season QB he only has 1 ring despite many post season upsets like the one to Mark Sanchez 2 seasons ago, and others. Flacco has already made and won the most consecutive playoff appearances I beleive, or somewhere close to it-5 straight years making it to the playoffs with at least 1 playoff victory and this will make his 3rd AFC title game. And [b]HE, [/b]not the defense has been the benefactor for the most part-like you said outplaying Brady last year and outplaying the best team in all of football today. People will always criticize Flacco for his inconsistancy in the regular season. But he plays pretty well in the post season.

No no, That was Joe's a game. I'm just saying he had a great game with just a few mistakes. I see how that came off hard. I'm on Flacco's band wagon. That was possibly his best game. And I'm perfectly confident in his ability to make it to the superbowl. Now to beat the NFC representative is going to be really difficult.

Completely agree with everything you've said. Like you, I just don't get it. With everything that Joe has done in his five-year career -- you think he'd get more love than what he does. Everyone is just too busy watching Brady, Manning, Rodgers, Brees, Worthlessburger and Ryan... Joe has more than earned his spot at the table, in my opinion.

I think we just live in a fantasy football-esque world where everyone cares about the regular season stats. But nothing matters until these big games and since last year (and even before then in some instances), Flacco seems to be much better than even the best of them.
