Joe Flacco to be Highest Paid QB EVER

96 posts in this topic

And how has he looked in those games prior to this season?

Heck, even this season he's only looked good, not special.

You really wanna argue he's better than all those elite names? Go ahead. I'm not buying, and if he returns to earth next season, that contract becomes an albatross.

Not going to argue with someone who made up their mind long ago despite the eye test, logic and proven performance,

Don't want to pay him that kind of money, Mr. GM? Fine- he walks and Ravens fans burn your stadium to the ground and your starting QB next year is who?.

The only other QB on the roster is? Tyrod Taylor.

Let's see how long you have a job after not paying Flacco that money.

marino had a decent defense one or two times i agree but most times it was PURE garbage. lol and remember san fran had just as good of a d if not better that year.

all those qbs had good d when they won....your best case is manning and his d stepped up big time in the playoffs.

brady had a stout top 5 defense when he won his 3( shouldnt have to tell anyone this/also spy gate),

brees's defense had the most turnovers when he won in the playoffs.

manning's defense in the playoffs LED in giving up the least pass/rushing yards and had over 10 turn overs.(the most out of 06 playoff teams)

never said i wouldnt sign flacco just would have not make him the highest paid player.

Cam's stats really aren't any better than Flacco's, he certainly hasn't won a Super Bowl, nor has he even sniffed the playoffs yet, but everyone assumes he's going to get a monster contract while bemoaning Flacco's.

That's why you slap him with the Franchise.

Here are the numbers from Joe Flacco's first two seasons and Cam Newton's first two seasons.

Cam Newton's first two seasons, the offense ranked on average 11th in points, 9th in yards.

Joe Flacco's first two seasons, the offense ranked on average 10th in points, 15th in yards.

Carolina's defense on averaged ranked 23rd in points and 19th in yards.

Baltimore's defense on averaged ranked 3rd in points and 2nd in yards.

% Yards Avg. TD INT Rush TD QBRating

Cam Newton (13-19) 58.9 7,920 7.9 40 29 22 85.3

Joe Flacco (20-12) 61.5 6,584 7.05 35 24 2 84.6

So based on these stats, Cam Newton's offensive numbers are superior to Joe Flacco's in the touchdown department with a +25 difference. There is no argument here as Cam is more important to Carolina's offense than Joe Flacco is to his.

The biggest difference in the teams is of course the defense. Give Cam Baltimore's defense and he would be in the playoffs two years in a row.

Oh, I would have paid him. I just wouldn't have overpaid him.

Have you seen what happens to organizations that overpay one player and then can't sign enough quality people around him to field a playoff worthy team?

Given the Raven's track record of not getting themselves into cap trouble and the relativity of what one team can afford and another team can't, I'm sure the Ravens knew exactly what they could pay.

We need to remember the team and Flacco's people all agreed to wait until the season was over until they talked contract. If that was an issue and if the money was an issue, the Ravens would have used the tag on him. They're obviously okay with the money because they didn't tag him and they didn't spend a lot of time negotiating the new deal- just a few days.

The short-sighted, single focus, lack of big picture recognition astounds me.

Joe Flacco was drafted one spot ahead of Carolina's pick Jeff Otah in 2008. I guarantee you everyone on this board would be crying the blues this morning had he been passed over by Carolina by one pick.

Joe Flacco has started every game in his 5 years in Baltimore. None of the other "elite" QBs mentioned (Rodgers, Manning 1, Manning 2, Brady, Rothliesberger, etc) have accomplished that in the last 5 years.

Joe Flacco has led his team to the playoffs in each of his 5 seasons as the starting QB- something no other QB in the Super Bowl era has ever done.

And as far as anyone should be concerned, that's all that matters. You can't win rings unless you get to the post season and Joe Flacco has put them in a position to do just that in each of his first 5 years in the league.

2008: 11-5

2009: 12-4

2010: 12-4

2011: 12-4

2012: 10-6

Yeah, that sucks. No way he should be the highest paid QB in the league.

You all know this- if Carolina had the option to select Flacco instead of Otah and Carolina's record looked like this for the last 5 years, you'd all be screaming at JR to pay Flacco whatever he wants.

Uh, we need to get the record straight here.

In 2008 our resident idiot Marty Hurney used our 13th pick in the draft to select Jonathon Stewart just 2 years after using our #1 to select Deangelo Williams. As I said at the time Hurney should have been fired on the spot after that pick

Joe Flacco was indeed still on the board when the Panthers took Stewart.

Our asshat Hurney then proceeded to send our 2nd, 4th and 2009 1st round picks to the Eagles so he could take Otah at the 19 spot.

Again Hurney should have been canned. Yet Richardson allowed 4 plus more years of incompetence before finally showing Hurney the door.

It's mind boggling how bad ownership and management has been the last few years.

It's one thing to overpay a moody, poorly motivated, underperforming Defensive End via the Franchise tag 15-20 million dollars per year, not once but twice.

It's a completely other thing to "overpay" a Top 5, clutch Quarterback the money at Football's most important position.

This would be the difference between Ozzie Newsome and Marty Hurney in a nutshell.

No prolific passers making it to the super bowl by themselves?

Brady, Manning, Brees, Joe Montana, Dan Marino of the top of my head.

Most had subpar defenses. The QB play took them there. Brees and the saints D , Peyton and that okay D, Brady and that suspect defense last year.

agreed, and those teams are more likely to make return trips because you have to have an offense capable of coming from behind and putting a poo ton of points on the board because in an era in which the passing game is protected from mean bully defenses you absolutely cannot count on your defenses to keep offenses from scoring. if you're going to be lacking in balance between offense and defense and you want to be legit contenders every year, you are much more likely to have success being a prolific offense than "shutdown" defense. the reason for that is the cards/rules are stacked against defenses.
