I am not a Flacco hater but we have to ask the question. This is Flacco's fourth year in the league and he hasn't quite turned the corner yet. Without Flacco we may not have gotten where we are now but then a again he is not the reason we are here either. When we threw the ball 40+ times we have lost. In every loss, Flacco was horrible. We lose when Flacco has a bad game. With the weapons that Flacco had this year, I expected him to go over 4,000 yards. We have a good balanced team but we struggle offensively because Flacco is inconsistent. Our offensive line is not horrible but he holds the ball so long that they look horrible, besides last game where they looked abysmal. Boldin and Torrey should have over 1,000 yards but Flacco's completion percentage this year explains that. He complains about not being allowed to throw the ball more but when he does we lose. He is not happy with the offense because he wants to throw more. I think that's a issue, if we lose when he takes the reigns. He is no Tom Brady, and I am not asking him to be but his play sometimes is ridiculous.
Flacco doesn't appreciate the criticism but there has been many games where he added fuel to the fire. This game on Sunday IMO is bigger than just a AFC Championship game. Flacco will need to come up big on Sunday or there will be some changes I think. We have an All Pro defense with Suggs probably receiving DPOY. We can win this game but not if Flacco can't execute the game plan which ever it may be. He will need to convert third downs for sure. There are not many objective fans on here but we all know that Flacco will be the only thing holding us back. We will see on Sunday
