I would like to thank Anquan Boldin for allowing me and my family to touch the Lombardi Trophy yesterday. The story of the season and yesterday's parade will be told to my son and grand kids one day...Thank you Anquan and the Ravens for giving the city of Baltimore something to be proud of, and something to remember for a lifetime. We love you. #RavensNation!

It's great walking around PA with my Flacco jersey on. I can't seem to find anyone wearing Steeler gear anymore! YEAH BABY! WE DID IT!

Joe Linta needs a dose of reality. The Ravens still need a line to protect Joe. Receivers for Joe to throw to. And a defense to keep the close games in his favor.

I'm not saying Joe doesn't deserve to get paid, just that his agent doesn't seem to be on the same wavelength as Joe and the team.

Joe You deserve the top QB money, but remember none of the top QB (Brady, Brees, Manning) got another ring after getting fat contract... It would be too big hit for the salary cap... Be smart, and dont be greedy... I believe you are the best, but you need team around you to win another SuperBowl!!!

Woh Woh Woh cool your jets mr. greedy agent. Flacco will get his money, and you will get your cut, but lets leave some room for the rest of the team. Flacco won't look the way he did, without Boldin, Mckinney, and some extra WR help. He needs a defense that will stop people if he wants any chance a winning.

Pay Flacco, Franchise Reed and work a deal with Kruger and Ellerbe that allows restructering next year when the CAP increases...do not let Boldin leave!!!!!

I wish Linta would just let Joe enjoy being Super Bowl MVP. Joe finally has the credit he deserves on the national stage, and now Linta keeps running his mouth about money. Cue the haters. They will get the deal done - there is no way the Ravens let Joe go anywhere - Linta needs to understand the delicate balance of of confidence and humility that his client has and just say what we all say in Ravens Nations - In Oz We Trust!

I agree with what most of you are saying , He deserves the big contract but lets not go overboard. There are a lot of players on this team that deserve to get there due. I love Joe, and it just may be his agent squawking, but I don't like the greed. As a fan I say Yeah, pay the man, but as a buisness person I say lets be reasonable. Just because the patriots and the Indy's are stupid, doesn't mean we have to follow suit.

Hey, I'm proud like all Ravens fans this morning,and yes, Joe Flacco deserves to get paid. However, I can only hope it doesn't cause us to lose key pieces like Anquan, Krueger. and Ellerbee. I understand an agent's job is to get his client the most money he can, but lets not destroy the team in the process. We can't even enjoy the Super Bowl victory!

A ) Tell me a QB that doesn't need a go-to-receiver, a solid OL and at least some defense
B ) Linta was ASKED that question. He didn't come up with it or come out of the gates saying it. What is he going to say? No?

we did this last year with us signing Rice to a deal, McClain to a deal and BA to one plus getting FA like Jacoby and Corey Graham and Bobbie to help out the team so the ravens can do it. but reed stays if he gets about 4-5 million a year if he wants 8-9 oh no sorry bro but we can't do that one.

In my opinion, Cary Williams will be gone.
He's going to want big money that the Ravens
are not parting with this year.

And, oh, by the way ... Have we forgotten about #21???

We will have a healthy Ladarius Webb back!!!

Remember Joe those guys who played for the Ravens at the Superbowl might not be there next year due to not enough money to go around. I hope you make a wise choice.

I like how nobody is talking about the fact that the 9ers had 12 men on the field for that same play. Instead all attention is being put on a good non-call. They had 12 guys on that last play!

It's nice to see Skip Bayless eating humble pie and finally giving Flacco credit for what he's accomplished.

I would like to see flacco get paid, but not to the detriment of the team. Say he gets the biggest contract ever and then the team goes on to have losing records the next 5 to 6 years. Or joes numbers go do the toliet because he has no one to throw to or a line to protect him. Yeah that scenario would go over real well. You think some fans were down on joe in the past, I see him getting run out of town if he doesn't have the support around him.

I hpoe that we get Jameel McClain back. Don't forget, that he was out for the season as well. So that could help us as well.

Give Joe a contract that pays him well but one that insures the Ravens can afford to protect him. Joe's contract will affect every team with a big name QB. All of them will want more than the amount Joe gets. Let's shake things up. Next year seems so unpredictable right now.

The fact people are already counting us out for next year cracks me up.

Flacco is a lot better now than he was in the beginning of the year. We will have new rookies coming in, hopefully mostly on the defensive side. Yes Ray will be gone but Ellerbe will fill in fine.

Not to mention we are getting our best player back from his season ending knee surgery (Webb)

At least Webb is the best player on the team in my opinion, I dont know what the rest of you all think.

Joe Flacco's agent is a moron!!! Joe is a pretty amazing quarterback, but not the highest paid QB. I don't know if his agent noticed, but our D-Fence is pretty old and we need to sign back some of our young and bring in some new blood as well.
