he's good... but he's not THAT good.

I would play some serious hardball if I were the Ravens on this one. Franchise his ass this year, make him prove that he deserves the money, then pay him what he earns next year.

franchising him would blow up their cap.

making him the highest paid player and spreading it out over the years is actually the best option.

The Ravens are screwed either way. They are going to have to pay his average ass top dollar and watch him slump for the next few years.

Matt Ryan could demand more, or the same amount as Flacco. This is going to be fun!


Yeah. This is all going to be fun until Cam's contract is up. These guys along with the Brees contract are driving up the market.

We will pay Cam whatever it takes I'm sure, but I am anxious to see how much that is going to be.

Fug all these high price rich greedy fags. I really think thet should set a limit cap on how much any player should be able to get. This is why so many teams struggle to stay under the cap each year. Because this player think he deserves more money then the next one. Flacco is not great. After the 34 min delay in the SB. Flacco came out flat and played that way for most of the second half. Only to have a game winning drive at the end. But Flacco ain't elite and probably will never be. He is good. But not Tom Brady or Peyton Manning elite. It will never happen. I'm sure Ravens will franchise tag him if he gets greedy. Flacco won the SB. Glad for him and he deserves a nice contract new contract to go along with it. But Brady or Manning type money and be the highest paid QB in the history of football. Flacco is full of crap. He ain't that good.

From the sounds of things, I'm in the minority here. I think Flacco is definitely undervalued. (Not by his agent obviously, lol.) Surely football is a team sport, but the QB is the focal point on offense (in an increasingly offensive oriented league), touching the ball on every snap. Sometimes people get caught up more in ancillary stats than the primary ones, like wins.

Sure football is a team sport, and Flacco has benefited from some very good defense in his time with the Ravens, but in my eyes, he plays his best in the biggest moments. As a starting QB in the NFL, Flacco is 9-4 in the playoffs. There are exactly 8 QBs in the history of the NFL with more playoff wins, and Flacco is just 28 years old. He has an elite level of poise and confidence when the pressure mounts, and that is most certainly worth a great deal when you can make all the throws/ reads.

I think Flacco's perceived worth is undermined in large part by his personality, or lack thereof. If Flacco were on the open market (and we didn't already have our wagon tied to Cam), I would love to see him in Panther colors.

This is how these agents work. Every single one.

It's his agent. He gets paid (and will get a bag of money after Flacco signs his new contract) to say that.

Sure he does. He won a lot of games and especially in the post season for the Ravens. That defense isn't once he used to be. Remember last year when Ed Reed was questioning Flacco. Well, Flacco should've question the defense this year.

He earned to be the highest paid QB. Baltimore should've have him a new contract last year if they were smart. Ravens won the SB all bc if Flacco.
