During the regular season, when the defense had multiple injuries, the fans were calling for Flacco's head, again. Fitzpatrick had a better completion percentage than Flacco, so did Carson Palmer. Flacco got his defense back and got the job done. Bravo. I can't wait for this year and see how the fans appreciate that contract.
I still don't think there's much of a similarity between the 2 other than they both won a SB w/ the Ravens. Flacco had a superb postseason and his statistics reflect that--I don't see how an 11:0 TD:INT ratio has anything to do with having a decent defence. His defence didn't carry him through the playoffs. Dilfer had a Tebowesque passing line through his postseason run and he had perhaps the best defence in league history lead the way to a title.
