The O line played a good game. Joe played a game to make the line look better. He rolled out and made plays. Under Cam Joe would have waited for the sacks or sack/fumbles. I have not seen Joe run like this since his rookie year. He is as big, fast and as agile as others but he has been pushed to trust his line. A line that he has not been comfortable with in a collapsing pocket. We have seen him run out and make plays or get a throw away. He just outplayed the "MacBook"!! Anything less has a virus.

What do you expect? Once Apple started building MACs in china the quality has gone down.

Haha don't count on it. Skip will do anything to deflect credit away from Flacco. Either pin the loss on Manning so he can talk about how great Brady is (provided they win this week) or just say he heaves throws up and the receivers do all the work, or blame the defenders for just having a bad day. Just like after Joe had the comeback drive in Pittsburgh last year, his rationale was Ryan Clark should've picked it off (the TD throw to Torrey).

More likely Skip will be talking about some phantom officiating - that was his major excuse after we beat the Patriots.

I actually agree. The OL certainly played better then usual, but it was still noticeable that they had a rough time handling the Denver pass rush. That pocket got small FAST. And when you compare it to the pocket Manning was standing in for most of game, the difference was huge.

You know, first of all I hate labeling guys "elite" or whatever, but I have refrained from calling Flacco that. But it is time to seriously start giving this guy the respect he deserves. He has become the guy that nobody wants to face in the postseason. I expect New England to be our opponents next week. If Flacco once again outplays Brady, in another postseason appearance (where the Brady hype train began), then maybe it's time to put Flacco up there with the game's best.

I am sorry, but the tales of the elite QBs that carry their teams are analyst fairy tales. You need elite players around you to be an elite QB and while the Ravens are certainly getting there, lets not equate the Ravens O with what a Drew Brees can throw the ball to. And btw, anybody could look elite while playing against Bradys divisional rivals. I mean, the Dolphins, the Jets and the Bills?

All you need to do is look at last year's AFCCG - Flacco put up 2 TDs and should have had a 3rd, but his team managed just 20 points. Brady threw no TDs and had 2 picks, yet his team managed to put up 23 points.

How about Superbowl XIII? Cowboys vs Steeler. Staubach vs Bradshaw. Staubachs receivers let him down. And Bradshaw had two HoFs to throw the ball to. So who is the better QB? Staubach or Bradshaw?

[/quote] Actually, he DID give Joe some credit. Just checked his twitter out of curiosity, posted a short tout video giving him a little love. I don't expect much more though.

The only thing Flacco ever needed was to have a solid offensive line that could give him time and a decent play calling offensive coordinator that could call plays to give his receivers separation. In the last two games against playoff teams(colts and broncos), the team has scored 62 points. Getting rid of Cam has proven to have been a great decision by harbs. Flacco now looks more comfortable now that he has Caldwell. Ray Lewis even said that he has passed the leadership torch over to Flacco. This game winning against Peyton was a coming of age came for Joe just like it was last year when he out dueled Brady in his house.

Just saw on Fox after the 49ers/Packers game: The Chevy Silverado Player of the Day was JOE FLACCO! Congrats, Joe! Pretty sweet considering Kaepernick had a pretty huge day too.

The scary thing is, he could have played better...he outplayed Manning, and her could have played better

If a few of those drops were catches his stat line would have been incredible instead of just excellent.

Joe needs a nickname, that Joe Cool is unoriginal. I like Bazooka Joe or Joe "Big Throw" Flacco.

IDK, Joe Cool seemed like a pretty apt nickname in freezing Mile High.

Flacco needs to win one more game to get that contract that he wants, or at least get close to it.
