Lyman, just think...if mano was abot 30 years younger he would just about be a pats fan...
Ravens-R-#1(for now) - are you really sighting BernieRotten and his idiotic stance on Leftwich replacing Ben? Really . . . BernieRotten is your source? Wow!Was it just Bernie? If so, my mistake. I thought, regulars have said it also. Even a few years back, I recall people wanting Byron after that Redskins game. Maybe I'm mistaken

However, Flacco just became the most successful QB since he's been in the league (more wins than any other QB, and as many SB wins as any other QB since he's been in the league). This win puts him at #5 currently.By most wins are you meaning post season? Because Matt Ryan has 56 wins to Joes 54 during the regular season over the same span of time. It should also be noted that while Ben trails him in wins over that span 48 to 54 Ben has the higher winning percentage (only by a point though) .676 to .675. Post season during that time Joe has 9 wins with a percentage of .692 not bad but ben out does him percentage wise with a .714 (5 wins 2 losses). Eli of course has them both beat with an .800 winning percentage int he post season. so I wouldnt be so quick to push Joe up to number 5 like no one else is around him. IT should also be worth ntoing Ben has appeared in 2 super Bowls sinc eFlacco has been in the league and then there is the matter of Ben being 2-0 vs Flacco in the playoffs. Now dont get me wrong I am not trying tot hrow Ben into the Elite catagory but just pointing out that Flacco doesnt have a lock on being the best of the next tier of qbs.
Okay, Ryan passed him this year. It must be nice to play in the NFC South especially after Bountygate.The NFC south opponets of Ryan have a winning percentage of .500 over the last 5 years yeah .500 not so hot. The winning percentage of Flacco's AFC opponets during that same time .471 Yeah thats right Ryan has faced stiffer compitition than Flacco over that time. Yeah I know you thought the NFC south would have been weaker than the AFC and you will next say well the Browns drag the AFC North down and you would be right well in the NFC South Carolina has dragged the division down over the last 3 years they just have not done it to the extent the browns have.
As far as Roethlisberger, I have Flacco ahead of him now, b/c in the past 2 years Flacco has won the div and beat Roethlisberger head to head the last 2 times they played.Great he is also 0-1 vs the Batch the last time they played. I say that mostley in fun but its also to show you cant just pick and choose the last meeting to make your point.
, while Flacco beat Manning and Brady this year and was a Lee Evans drop away from beating him to go to the SB and provide a much tougher match up for the Giants last year)
Why are you all so hell bent on having Flacco deemed "Elite" ? Who the hell cares about that status. It doesn't mean a thing to be called "Elite".Who is claiming or asking for him to be called ELITE?.....What does ELITE mean anyway? Someone needs to come up with a clear cut answer to that question. It is an opinion. I could care less if he is deemed ELITE....SUPERHUMAN or whatever. All Joe does is win...and that is fine with me.
