I am not a big fan of Flacco, but he makes a good point, one that Nalen had made in recent weeks.

Manning is football all the time and even in the locker room. Nalen points out that there has to be some downtime, especially in the locker room, otherwise guys are just to wound up.

I think both Flacco and Nalen make good points. Nalen has won two rings and is worth listening to.

Is there a more boring player that does more to not be boring than Joe Flacco? I've never seen someone so monumentally boring who tries, and has done more to be interesting than Joe Flacco and yet he fails miserably.

He's like those goth kids in school who in elementary school were boring and so during adolescence they made themselves look like Marilyn Manson vomited a vampire-Edward scissorhands hybrid. And they look really different, but really they are still incredibly boring people trying in all the wrong ways to not be boring.

That is Joe Flacco - whether he's whining about being noticed, winning super bowls or whining about other players - he's still boring.

Yeah let's put that to bed right now. Manning is a hard ass when it comes to football and specifically when it comes to practice and doing what you're supposed to. He is also the biggest prankster on the team and regularly gets his teammates together for fun events that have nothing to do with football. So this idea that Manning is Dean Wormer is a bunch of crap.

What player feels better about himself.

The player that gets yelled at by Manning when he messes up then gets praised and high fived by Manning when he does great.

Or the guy that messes up and Flacco says "its cool bro"

Joe Flacco should thank Ray Lewis..Once Lewis announced his retirement, NFL made sure that the Ravens win the SB.
SD game, our game are the prime examples how ref's can manipulate the game.
I hope we win SB this time and defeat ravens in this process.

I don't necessarily agree with teh conspiracy theory, but there were a lot of things that "just happened" to go the Ravens way in that playoff and super bowl run.

Art dies
Lewis announces his retirement (after being the star of the opening credits of Madden)
All the calls they got during the season (that conversion against the Chargers where they were about a foot short; they don't win that game, they don't make the playoffs)
The calls they got in that playoff game against us. Their line doesn't allow a single sack but they also don't get called for a single hold? Get the **** out.
The calls they got in the Super Bowl?

There's a lot of "wow, that's some home cookin'" in the Ravens season.

I agree, it was the perfect storm in that playoff game. NOTHING went out way and we still should have won.

I would like to point out though that even if they had lost that game against SD where Rice was short of the first down they still make the playoffs. They would have been 9-7.

You got me all riled up when you said that, I was gonna freak if that would have kept them out of the playoffs.

I don't know, he seems like a bit of a goofball off the field. Like, sure he's intense about training, film, etc. But he seems to know how to keep things loose in the locker room.

Flacco seems to view himself as the "cool" "chill" QB that guys like to play with because he's not a hardass. He's not like those other dads! But there's not a man in that Baltimore locker room that wouldn't ship his ass out in a second if they could play with Peyton, occasional mean words and all.

It's not about viewership today. It's about viewership (and hero worship) for decades after the fact. The mouth-breathers in Baltimore will be talking about how great it was that Ray was able to go out on top and deliver for his dead boss until the end of time.

And you really think the NFL cares about "credibility"? How does a lack of credibility hurt the league in any way?

I don't agree with you.
If you watch those games, you will clearly see that the ref's are favoring Ravens.
I agree that we also made mistakes(coaches as well as players).
But, it's tough to win when you are playing against refs.

Joe Flacco wishes he was half the player Manning is and was respected league wide like PM. Flacco will go back the Mark Sanchez soon enough.

The idea the the NFL has credibility with fans is as absurd as the conspiracy theory your arguing against.

So, were the Broncos 2 Superbowls just a preconceived narrative to let John Elway ride off into the sunset?

All this time I really thought those teams earned their Super Bowl rings, and there was a greedy corporation pulling puppet strings the whole time. Why do I even watch football? I'm moving to Belgium.

I guess the silver lining is the NFLs inherent last hoorah champion narrative means I will get to see the Broncos win another Super Bowl, because I'll be damned if they don't send the golden boy Peyton Manning off without another ring. On the other hand I will probably have to suffer another Patriots Super Bowl as well. I guess you take the good with the bad, right puppet master Rog?

He does. Watch the Carolina game from last year. Manning threw a bubble screen to Matt Willis (I think it was a 2nd down play with two or three yards to go for a 1st down), and instead of going straight up the field Willis danced a little bit and was tackled for no gain... Manning immediately started dropping F bombs at him and motioned for him to get off the field.

I know right? It's about time we had another QB that held people accountable. We get a defender like that, and it's game ****ing on.
