Flacco really should wire Rahim an agent's cut, what 12%?

SportinOne 03-01-2013 08:45 PM

That's really something.. truly a game of inches.

This is Flacco's team now. Ravens used to win with defense and Flacco benefitted from that. Now with all this money going into his pocket and the defense getting old, it's going to be interesting to see if the ratbirds can continue the winning. Ray-ray is gone, there's no more "win it all for Ray" to motivate this team.

03-01-2013 10:24 PM

Flacco is terrible. At least the Ravens will be in the gutter for 6 years. One less team to deal with.

And the Ravens are stupid for paying that.

And now I do this. Hilarious!

Question: Did Joe Flacco just have the greatest contract year of all-time in any sport?

Exactly. I think the Ravens will regret this. I still am not a believer that Flacco is an elite QB. Double OT, Moore and nothing. The best part of the Pats is their offense and the defense took care of that. If we lob Flacco as an elite QB, what does that make Dilfer, Hostetler, or Brad Johnson? You can say yeah but or if or whatever, the defense did it and now the Ravens have put all their money on an illusion.

Joe "Livin' on a Prayer" Flacco will come back down to Earth. And so will the Ravens. What a horrible move.

extralife 03-01-2013 11:10 PM

so does this mean Aaron Rodgers gets like 30 million a year when he's up for a new deal?

Taco John 03-01-2013 11:11 PM

I am not as down on Flacco as everyone else. I think he's got some fine measurables, and he's finally started to grow into them as a pro. But to make him the highest paid player of all time. Wow. That seems excessive.

No ****! I can't imagine those prayers getting answered this season. I'm guessing we see a ton of those deep bombs picked off. That Raven offense sure will need some ref help like they got throughout the post season to make another run like that.

ZONA 03-01-2013 11:36 PM

OMG - talk about over reaction to one nice post season. For real, 1 missed easy tip pass and that's like an 85-90 million dollar deal.

Can't blame the guy for getting the money but you sure can look at that FO and say WTF? Guess that team won't be signing many good FA's for a long time. They better draft like there's no tomorrow.

Matt Cassel parlayed the 2008 season in New England into a fat contract.

Dude had basically warmed the bench since he was in high school before that season.

Ooooh, yeah that's a great point. Flacco at least had played multiple seasons, been in the playoffs before, etc.

But did they have a choice? After a Super Bowl win do you risk another team grossly overpaying him? We know here that QBs don't just grow on trees.

I think they were ****ed either way.

elsid13 03-02-2013 06:31 AM

All about timing. But what were the Ratbirds going to do, there was no way they could let the Super Bowl winning QB walk without a "Steve Young" back-up in wings.

rbackfactory80 03-02-2013 07:37 AM

So we are paying the same thing without the result. Get some glasses bros, dude played a hell of a postseason and gave the Ravens their 2nd Superbowl tying them with a team who we all know pretty well.

I think you hit it on the head right there. They had no other choice. They have no back-up there are no FA QBs and the draft sucks. Flacco was playing himself out of a big contract all year last season. But he threw 11 TDs and 0 ints in the playoffs. No the Ravens have to hope the QB they saw in the playoffs is the one they get for the next 6 years.

Gutless Drunk 03-02-2013 08:17 AM

Most of their big plays in the playoffs were "huck it up & hope" type plays. 50/50 balls where either the receiver made a good play or the DB is a ****ing dumb ass.

I guess they can hope that 4 game luck holds up & he is not what everyone saw over 16 games.

I don't know if I would say he had the best athletic performance in a contract year, but the other factors that went along with it made it a very favorable contract year. The Ravens are losing the face of thier franchise this year, along with two other possible hall of fame players. The team is in a state of transition coming off a super win. There is a lot of pressure on the management to maintain whatever stability they can on the roster. Add in the MVP and you have the perfect storm for the kind of money Flacco was able to demand.

That having been said, and while I don't think Flacco is good enough to justify that kind of money, this is not a contract based off a single game, or years performance. What I wonder is how much money the Broncos would be willing to spend on a 28 year old quarterback who has won a playoff game in every one of the 5 seasons since he started in the league as a rookie, won a superbowl, and is a career 9-4 in post season play.
