Flacco steps his game up in postseason
With Joe Flacco's nice performance today leading the Ravens to their playoff victory, I started thinking about how Flacco seems to be emerging as a big-time postseason qb. Remember last year, if Lee Evans secures that ball, Ravens beat the Patriots and go to the Super Bowl. (Flacco clearly outperformed Brady that game)

Next week poses an interesting match-up, as Flacco, who clearly has capable skills, can he continue to step up his postseason performances against a Broncos defense that leads the NFL in sacks, and has a very good secondary.

I am so looking forward to next weeks match-up.

I like Flacco, but not enough to wish that he doesn't get creamed by WMD!

If today's game was Flacco stepping up his performance, we should have a very easy time next week.

He still sucks

Not worried, we will destroy him (again)

You answered your own question. Flacco did not face a good D today, nor against the Pats last year.

Another Vine football take?

Stats are misleading. He won't be able to throw jump balls to Boldin through triple coverage against Denver's secondary. He basically burned a guy that couldn't make Denver's roster. A gap pressure mind ****s Flacco. Pretty much any sort of pressure and he folds like a yard sale tent.

That Von Miller guy is going to have a huge game on Saturday. Something tells me the best linebacker in the game isn't going to like the non-stop Ray Lewis, T-Sizzle slobberfeast that's going to take place this week.

Isn't he usually good at home? Too bad he's not playing us at home.

And on the road this week against an elite pass rush & secondary.

Flacco sucks ass and always play well at home. It is the road games were he cant play.

12/23 for 282 and 2 TDs. Most of his yards came on a nice piece of running from Rice and a couple Hail Marys. That against one of the worst Ds in the league. I'm causiously very optimistic. Only way they pull out a win is if we have a -2 or more in the turnover department.

With one less day to prepare/rest.

Ravens D gave up 419 total yards to the Colts.....but kept them out of the end zone.....they'll give up 30+ points if they allow 400+ yards to Manning and Co.

If we contain Rice and watch deep ball we'll be fine.
