Folks, let's get back on topic here please. If you want to discuss the pros and cons of Joe's game, find another thread for it.
Let's keep this thread about his looming deal.
That's just it.
His deal is looming, and who knows when it will finally come to be and at what price.
Come on folks ....
Leave the Flacco debate off of here.
Discuss the deal, not the talent. If you wish to do that, open a new thread.
There was a four tame stretch where Flacco led the entire NFL in pass attempts. The Ravens went 2-2 during that span, and Flacco averaged around 5.5 YPA while completing barely 50% of those throws. That's a little worse than "not bad". It was after that when there was a concerted effort to get the ball in Rice's hands. That may be too small of a sample size but at that point I believe they didn't want to sacrifice playoff positioning while waiting for Flacco to find his rhythm.
None of the QBs mentioned came out of the box throwing forty and fifty times a game, with much more success than Flacco. They all had to persevere through that process and get quality WRs/TEs.
Oh, and uh, I haven't heard any updates on Flacco's deal.
Be that way then.
