Will we have a mostly consistent offense for one season for basically the first time in franchise history? I know with Flacco we've been better than we ever were before him, but still, every year we'd have 4-6 games where we didn't even get points on the board till we were close to halfway through the game. Some of that falls on Flacco, some of that on our OCs and of O-line and rest of the offense. But Flacco and offense, for whatever reason, every year they put together a couple of great games, a few good ones, and the rest were mediocre to terrible.
I want to see 12+ weeks where we score more than 20 points. I want Flacco to hit receivers on make-able passes. When he plays well, I don't want the rest of the team to let him down.
A lot has been made about Flacco over 6 years, and while it's said every year that "this is his breakout year", here I am with something similar.
I think this year will define him as who he is going to be the rest of his career...
Is he the player who out-dueled Luck, Manning, Brady and Kapernick on his way to tying Montana's 11/0 td/int record in the post season while winning the Super Bowl? Or is he the Afc's Eli Manning.
To be fair, even if he is Eli Manning, I'll take it. I love Flacco, I Love who he is and I'll always support him. But, I'm done making excuses for him. I know that there are many valid reasons out there for why it isn't all his fault why he struggles at times, but at some point the true Elite qbs rise above the excuses and cirumstances. Is Joe good, is he elite? Lucky? I think it's fair to say this year is a true measure of what to expect the rest of his career. I'll be there rooting for him every step of the way. I believe he's special and he'll rise up again to show his critics that those 4 games weren't a fluke. Time will tell if I'm right.
