    cap friendly deal, I'm happy. It's just the way the league is these days, Titans did something similar with CJ and I'd argue you haven't gotten much return. Time will tell if the Ravens do.

    Your QB still has one of those faces. I don't care how much money he makes.

    There is no such thing as a cap-friendly deal if he is earning 20 million a year.

    Also don't forget that without Ray Rice's miracle 4th and 29 conversion it may not have happened either... But at the same time you guys probably would've won the finale against the Bengals if you needed it.

    As amazing a play as that was, Rice was a foot short of the first down! Just another classic example of the refs helping the Ravens!

    Check that out.

    Now I know total QBR is a sometimes flawed evaluation of a QB's performance, but most QBs are right where they belong in the rankings.

    Locker and Hasselbeck ahead of the highest paid player in NFL history. LOL that's awesome! Way to go, Ravens!

    If I were GM or a member of the FO dealing with Flacco's negotiations, I would print this page out, show it to him, and tell him he isn't worth it.

    I assume you mean Eli because Eli>Peyton. I said it! Eli has a bigger arm and hes not a choke artist in big games. Just remember... anybody could have won a super bowl against Kyle Orton!

    It wasn't Orton. It was Grossman... Even worse.

    But Eli is not better than Peyton. That's stupid.

    Crazy deal. Flacco got way overpaid. Brady, Rodgers, Manning, Ryan, & Brees ahead of him. With RG3, Russell, Romo, Big Ben, Luck, and Eli all near him (not in any order).

    But hey, Ravens couldn't let him go. There is one thing about Flacco, he's gotten better every year. Ravens hope it stays that way.

    Probably put Big Ben and Eli ahead of him.

    Ruthlessraper is better than him. Wilson and RG3 are already better than him IMO. Luck will probably be the equivalent of Flacco in the future. Romo sucks.

    Eli and Flacco are pretty much equal, but I'd give Eli the edge.

    Flacco is slightly better than an average QB, but he's being paid as if he's the best player in league history.
