    Did you know...?



    That Joe Flacco is the tallest QB to ever win a SB?

    I remember a discussion a while back and we were talking about how it seemed that there was a (completely arbitrary and nonsensical) correlation between a QB's height and SB success. At the time, Peyton hadn't won yet...so guys like Brady, Ben, Favre, Elway, Young, etc were shorter than 6'5".

    Stupid, I know.

    I don't know why that popped into my head, but it did.

    I thought Big Ben is 6'5" and that is who Flacco got compared to a lot when talking about tall QBs.

    Ok, I guess he is 6'5"...maybe this was a thread convo from the sunspot forums before he even won...

    Actually at the combine he measured 6'6 and 7/8ths of inch tall. He's as close to 6'7 as you can get.

    He is actually like 6'6" and 7/8.

    So, when he first wakes up in the morning, he is probably ever bit of 6'7".

    I met him after his rookie year. He's a tall guy. Every bit of that

    Somehow I missed this, but did you know . . .

    . . . that the Ravens are the first team since the 1994-95 Dallas Cowboys to lose the conference championship game one year and come back and win the Super Bowl the next year?

    At least I think that's what I read somewhere.

    Flacco is tall?
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    And? The point is valid. I vividly remember people saying flacco was too tall to be a good qb.
