Would You Rather? Matt Ryan or Joe Flacco?

The annual offseason debate that is sure to clog your timeline and news feed: who would you rather have Joe Flacco or Matt Ryan? In Pete Prisco’s Top 100 (which may actually be even more of a joke than the NFL Network Top 100), he puts Matt Ryan at #48 while he keeps Flacco off the list. In his recap, he says, “Flacco isn’t considered a franchise quarterback,” which is complete nonsense. Ryan Wilson counters that by taking a by-the-numbers look at the two quarterbacks. While the metrics favor Matt Ryan, Ryan Wilson says he’d take Flacco over Ryan because, well, he’s January Joe. LINK

Eisenberg: Flacco Entering ‘Mini-Contract Year’

BaltimoreRavens.com writer, John Eisenberg discusses what next offseason will mean for Joe Flacco. When he signed his contract, Flacco’s agent, Joe Linta told the Baltimore Sun that he and Flacco “really viewed this as sort of a three-year deal.” In exchange for a lot of guaranteed money, Flacco and Linta kept the numbers low for the first three years so that they could re-negotiate in the middle of the contract. Next year, it will be time for that to happen. It will take a lot of cooperation between the two in order to get it done. Flacco will have the leverage. LINK

Adapting to roster changes is nothing new for Flacco

Cliff Brown of CSN Baltimore discusses how adjusting to changes is nothing new for Joe Flacco. Only Sam Koch, Terrell Suggs, and Marshal Yanda remain from the team to which Joe Flacco arrived back in 2008. They know how to deal with change, and Joe thinks that the Ravens have the right guys to make a run. LINK

How in the Hell Did NFL Blitz Ever Get Made?

This is a somewhat old article – from 2014 – about NFL Blitz, the cult NFL video game from the late 90s. As a 90’s kid who owned an N64 and played this game on a regular basis, this was a fun read. Aaron Gordon of Vice Sports does a great job telling the story of how creative director, Mark Turmell and lead designer, Sal DiVita got the game approved by the NFL. At the time, the NFL was still glorifying its violence. LINK

About Tyler Lombardi

Tyler has followed Baltimore sports his entire life. His favorite player growing up was Steve McNair, so he was ecstatic when he became a Raven in 2006. When he’s in front of the TV watching the game, it’s best to avoid non-football discussion. It’s quite likely he isn’t listening anyway, as his girlfriend can attest to.
