To for me to Spin up

Alright haters! Stand up! All of you who called out my guy Joe Flacco throughout the year. All of you who wanted Tyrod Taylor in there even though Joe Flacco was/and still is the man. He is now Superbowl winning, Superbowl MVP starting QB of my Baltimore Ravens!! Don't mind me... I'll wait! Get ready to see this beast mode QB on an opening clip of ESPN. Chea!

His senior year at the University of Delaware, when I was a lowly freshman -- I saw it all firsthand.

This is, again, that "I told you so" moment that I keep bringing up.

Fall of 2007, I said I'd love for the Ravens to draft him and [i]not[/i] just because he's my fellow Blue Hen. Over 5 years later, I've been vindicated.

Air Flacco forever! You don't WIN Super Bowls with "Scrambling" quarterbacks like Kaepernick and Tyrod Taylor. You've got to be able to make steady passes and powerful launches.

I'm so happy. My adrenaline is gone, but my emotions are still high. When we lost Webb and Ray went out for a while, I thought, "That's it. The injury bug has claimed too many guys." And then we beat the Giants. And we had already beaten the Patriots in Week 3. We should've won Week 2. That's on the replacements. But I thought we were done. And then Ray made that announcement. I knew they'd play hard for the general, but after Peyton and Brady in the Divisional and Conference games, I said, "We're gonna win" I knew we were a team of destiny. And I'm sorry I doubted this team for that moment. And I know I'm a crazy fan. But I love to win and hate to lose. I'm passionate about my team and I'm glad I stuck by Flacco. I insulted someone over the whole Flacco debate and I am sorry, but I know he's our guy. I love this fan base and I love this team. Quoth the Raven nevermore.

Oh no doubt. That TD pass to Pitta was a brilliant call. I know Cam was probably at home yelling "RUN IT!!!" They had everyone up on the line and bam. Beautiful. Pitta was like "Really? No coverage what-so-ever?" And there were so many amazing passes, but the main one for me was that Boldin one on the side lines. I was like "Ah he threw it away" And seconds later he came down with it. I was like "Oh my gosh!...Okay that works" lol So amazing.

I hope Bisciotti slaps Caldwell with the equivalent of a franchise tag! He's going to be a hot head coaching prospect come next season.

Exactly, im not a U of D alum, but I have a lot of friends who went there, I lived in Newark over off of S chapel for a while. I got to see Joe at the U of D and I agree.. I knew he had what it took and I kept saying that hes so good but hes under the radar coming from U of D..perfect scenario for the Ravens to pick him.

Then he showed up everyone in the combine and the QB challenge. I was so happy that we took him.

The best part of Flacco winning isn't even for Baltimore but for what this could do. The University of Delware might get better recruits from this. Other QBs & players may be drafted earlier from the school.

He's like Apple: he changed everything tonight.

If our offense produces a second year than he absolutely gets a head coaching job. We should have just hired him as an offensive coordinator flat out instead of a QB coach.

I could see a team without a lot of leadership on offense with a poor QB with a lot of potential (Sanchez?) use Caldwell's talents. It's very possible Caldwell will be a HC in the coming years.

Really, in all seriousness, the Jets would be a perfect fit for Caldwell.

Quite a few times when Joe got under pressure and started scrambling and then "threw it away" and I let out an exasperated sigh, only to see it get caught.
