I don't think anybody would argue against Joe Flacco deserving a raise - and maybe a significant one - for his performance this year.

But paying Flacco more than Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Drew Brees and both of the Mannings? I'd balk at that.

Well... It's not a matter of being the best QB. He gambled not signing before the PO's, winning the SB and MVP has put him in best negotiation position any player can have. He gambled and won a big, fat paycheck.

It was a calculated risk. The Ravens could have extended him before the season for a lot less money. They wanted to see how he played this year (which I would have also). He won the Superbowl MVP and basically had a remarkable post season. He is going to get somewhere between 17-20 mill a year. Deserves to be the highest paid , I don't know. It's up to Baltimore to decide that, I won't begrudge him either way.

Flacco is and has always been full of crap. Yes, he played well in the Superbowl, but so did Jake Delhomme if we recall correctly. He's a good quarterback that has a huge upside, but he needs to show consistency before he gets Rodgers/Manning/Brady type money. When he said I think it was last year that he was the best qb in the league I knew then that he was full of poo.

He's won more games in his first 4 years than anyone else and has a SB MVP trophy with his name on it. And let's not act like this Ravens' defense was elite this season. They had so many injuries and finished 17th overall. Flacco lead them.

Here's a question....you guys are all ready to hand Cam a monster contract yet your hesitant about Flacco getting one. What exactly has Cam done to prove he should get a top 5 contract? Has he been consistent enough? I don't think so.

Who said that Cam deserved a top 5 contract?

Flacco is Eli. Sucks during the regular season and is god during the playoffs.

He should be paid as a top 5 QB like he is.

The Ravens made their own bed with this one. Flacco wanted to do a new deal this past offseason and it was the Ravens who wanted to wait and see how the season played out. Well, they won the SB and Flacco played like a baller in the postseason. They could've probably had him for top 10 money, but now they may be looking at making him the highest paid player in the league. They gambled and lost.
