    He did when it mattered. edit: Though I must confess, whatever your point might be is completely lost on me. I'm not talking about careers--I'm talking about the fallacy that exists around here that 'Flacco outplayed Brady' in the AFCCG...

    Bullshit. You confuse flair for creative profanity for emotion and my insistence on giving CREDIT where it's due with blind allegiance. I have and will continue to say that Flacco is far from perfect. What I will not do is piss on his successes and credit luck and another team's fuck ups for them. If you really think that what you're doing to Joe's career is the equivalent of pointing out a single missed tackle, then you know less about football than I do about cricket.

    Umm. Wat?

    Since when is that "a fallacy that exists around here"?

    He DID outplay Brady in that game. It's not even close.

    If you think Alex Smith can do what Joe has here than you aren't "saying one bad thing". You are saying that Joe Flacco is hardly a starter in the NFL.

    Utterly ridiculous. Does this idiotic philosophy apply to every player or just QBs? Is Qadry Ishmail a better receiver than Anquan Boldin? Is Kim Herring better than Pollard? What about coordinators? Is Matt Cavanaugh a better coordinator than Josh McDaniels?

    Idk, missing a tackle is like throwing an incompletion or taking a sack to a QB. When someone says something bad about Joe throwing an incompletion, a lot of people on this board will be quick to point to the play calling, or a WR not being open. Yet when Reed misses a tackle, let's just cut him right?

    Yes but when did I say that? WHEN?

    Probably when you said, repeatedly, that Alex Smith could win a championship here.

    Is there a point here? Because this makes even less sense.

He could have, and those would have all been true, but instead he put it all on his shoulders and said "100% me."

    And look at how his team mates responded.




    Next time someone claims that Joe isn't a leader, I'm just going to link to this post until that meme goes away.

    By what metric?

    When all is said and done, Brady got his offense to score 23 points. Flacco got his offense to score 20. Everything else is ifs, shouldas, wouldas, couldas, etc. They don't keep track of those in official NFL statlines, unless I'm mistaken.

    By the same token (so that you don't think I'm putting the blame for losing the game on Flacco), the defense allowed three points more than the Pats' D did, Harbaugh made more questionable decisions than Belichick, etc. Bottom line is though, despite not having a great game stats-wise, Brady did enough to win. Any argument that Flacco outplayed him is based in statistics which are trumped by the scoreboard.
