He's been better in the playoffs than most QBs, and certainly better than ours. This thread should just be titled "Flacco most recent top-tier QB to sign a contract". The hyperbole is laughable.

They could have tagged him, and made him prove it over another season.

I think Mark Sanchez has a winning postseason record.. And is tied for most road playoff wins ever. Does that mean he should get big money too?

If he wins a Super Bowl he does/will get that money.

Hard for you to call a spade a spade bro. Peyton Manning sucks in the playoffs, that is a fact. Not even disputable at this point. Enjoy the meaningless regular season wins though. Unfortunately, they don't do a damn thing for me.

Hopefully we won't be experiencing deja vu this time next year.

Flacco is not worth that kind of coin, but I get it
Superbowl MVP, still young, has made the playoffs every year he has been in the league

It was a move they had to make

I like it when the guys who hitched their wagon to Tebow talk **** on other qbs

Their bitterness is amusing

Really? Brad Johnson didnt get the money. If they win a SB they do it in spite of Sanchez. Not because of him.

Flacco performed like an above average QB, I'd say top 15 for sure, maybe borderline top 10. Right there, that doesn't deserve $20 mil a year. Honestly, like $12-$15 mil a year at best.
He played very well in the playoffs, extraordinarily well, earned Super Bowl MVP. He basically had the Ravens by the balls, they couldn't let him go, the fan base would be in an uproar, the team wouldn't like it at all.
So he gets paid. This upcoming year, the Ravens are losing their defensive leader in Ray Lewis, and possibly Ed Reed. Those guys might have been declining, but they still had some game and leadership.

Who takes 12-15,when they can get $20 million. I know you wouldn't. Don't get me wrong,I don't think he's a 20 mil a yr QB either,but can't hate on him for getting paid like one. Flacco had the leverage & he used it,any one of us would've used it.

Believe me, I'm not saying it's right. But he'd get paid.

Yeah, I guess it was a mistake to bring in Manning. We should just cut him, bring back Tebow, and enjoy the 9-9 years where we're actually a 5-11 team but can expect to continue to get an insane amount of luck in games and the division we play in to make the playoffs and just get absolutely destroyed by the true contenders.

I guess you would take that bull**** over having a true contender giving the team the best possible chance in the playoffs.

Again, if Rahim Moore does is job on that one play, Manning probably has 2 rings and Flacco none and Flacco isn't the highest paid quarterback in NFL history.

Some educational reading for you linked below. The "sucks in the playoffs" thing is crap and this article explains it in detail.

Yup, he played well in the playoffs. Have to give him that. But the guy was extremely mediocre, or worse, most of the year. He was 25th in QBR, and 12th in passer rating, in the regular season. He got hot and had a nice run in the playoffs. I'm not sure that's the kind of guy you want to give the NFL's largest contract. But, I understand why the Ravens did it. I just think it may come back to bite them in the ass some day.

Ozzie knows how to draft, and draft defense. I'm betting he will be taking a MLB in this coming draft. I soooo want the Broncos to take a MLB but they probably won't. The Ratbirds will, the Broncos won't. Just watch.

So that makes it a, what, $50 million dollar pass over Moore's head? Unbelievable.

It'll be interesting to see where the Broncos go from here. Either the pall will extend for years, a la my Mets of '06, '07 or they'll pull a '97 and double up.

Blah blah blah. To bad he can't make it happen when it counts. He had so many chance against Baltimore. He wanted no part of it. Keep looking at stats without watching the games though.
