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.
