Joe Flacco Is The Nfl's Best Qb

17 posts in this topic

I mean, I think I'm the best. I don't think I'm top five, I think I'm the best. I don't think I'd be very successful at my job if I didn't feel that way. I mean, c'mon? That's not really too tough of a question.

I suppose I wouldn't want my QB thinking he was the 11th best starter in the league..............

Lol. Joe is a good QB when he's on his game but the moment bad Joe comes out it's over. He's been lucky to be on such a stacked team too. I remember the story of how he has the most wins out of any QB in his first 4 season but come on the Ravens have been loaded with defensive talent.

Also Ray Rice plays a HUGE role. I've got to find it but in all the Ravens 4 losses last year Rice averaged 9 carries while he averaged 20 in all their wins.

But back to the point. No he's tripping.

Confidence is good, but it has limits. He should have said he wants to be the best QB in the league.

Not sure why you "edited" his quote to make your point. His attitude is the same attitude most starting QBs in the NFL have. These guys are all hyper-competitive. What did you want him to say? That's like all the people who are obsessed with the "humble athlete" dichotomy. The fact of the matter is almost all professional athletes are convinced to the point of extreme arrogance that they are THE MAN. That's what it takes.

You know, Eli Manning said he was an Elite QB before last season and he wound up leading the Giants to their second Super Bowl lol. So just maybe this works out for Joe similar to Eli. I know a lot of people will make much more of this than is needed, and this will get drastically over blown. Quite honestly as a Ravens fan, I would be more disappointed if Joe said he wasn't a Top 5 Quarterback. I'd rather have a QB with confidence in himself rather a QB who doesn't believe he is a Top 5 QB and doesn't believe in himself.

Who's been better on a recent basis?

Joe threw 11 TDs and no interceptions during the playoffs...

A quarterback should always have confidence.

But realistically, do I put Flacco in the same category as Rodgers, Brees, Brady and the Mannings? No.

Yes, he's good, but he ain't that good.

His agent trying to get him 20 million a year. Of course he has to say this.

    • Is it Cam simply refusing to go underneath or is it a number of contributing factors? We are a running/downfield passing team. The problem was, we couldn't get the run game going due to the OL, and our play calling/design didn't help matters at times to compensate for that deficiency either. Nobody complained about this in 2015 when we nearly went undefeated. So what was the difference between seasons? It couldn't have had anything to do with our depleted OL could it? Overall we shot ourselves in the foot too many times in 2016 in various ways. But the reality is the OL was at the center of our woes.
    • What you’re saying doesn’t make sense.  The society we have now, was structured based completely on race.  That number I mentioned concerning the black prison population, there is no way in the universe you can get that number without being directly targeted.  Even during South Africa Apartheid, their prison numbers in the black population wasn’t as bad, nowhere near close.  This is our country. The only way to truly make things right, is to acknowledge the problem and addressed it specifically.  The reason why we see protests like the one Kaepernick did, is because that problem hasn’t been addressed.  Of course I have my answer on how to address it, but I’m sure most would completely disagree with it, even though the statistics would show it is much deserved.
    • Taylor Moton is a big man. He's a very athletic 300lb+ tackle who moves around defenders like they're nothing. He appears to have a bright future in shoring up our tackle spot, and likely dominate in the NFL. However, an underrated aspect of Moton is just how intelligent he really is. When you think of Memorial Day weekend plans, you think of barbecues and hanging out with friends and family. However, Moton plans include a lot of study and filmwork. Just take a look: http://www.panthers.com/news/article-2/Taylor-Moton-trying-to-soak-in-new-studies/227630c4-675d-4393-a1ab-526b528c4425 Taylor Moton seems to be ready to soak in all the information he can muster to get ready to compete in Training Camp. An intelligent big guy with a bright future in the NFL.
