Re: Flacco asking for Brees type money
I wasn't referring to wins, I was using the obvious eye test that any football fan could use to assess Joe's level with. Even still the, 'until last year' part says to me that you've just proven my entire point. Even with all the stuff going on in the background with the organization, coaching changes and player changes Joe has stood fast and continued to help the Ravens win games. Sanchez in a word, hasn't. Boom.

Those people? Yea, that's a REAL bummer dude.
Numbers mean almost nothing. Hey, Matt Ryan's numbers were great. Once again, using the eye test, it's pretty obvious that he plays in a nice comfy dome most of the year, plays against cupcake teams but when the game is on the line he melts like an ice cube in Arizona. Joe doesn't. The numbers may not belie that certainty but the playoffs sure do. Joe hasn't just done it in three games guy, he's been doing it for three years.
If he comes out and throws a stinker, yup. He's still consistent. Weren't you JUST trumpeting that a few games can't decide the level of consistency or not? Over the last three years, he's been about as consistent as you can get at quarterback. Period. If he muffs up the Super Bowl, that doesn't take away how clutch he's been for the other five years he's played here. Unless your own logic is wrong?
