Of the Flacco Question, there was a clear answer in the team's defeat at New England. In spite of losing, he clearly showed that he's a good QB.
This game went right down to the end and should have gone into overtime.
Consider that his team's run-game was being completely shutout. His team rushed Ray Rice 21 times and he couldn't do better than 3.2 yards per attempt. Ricky Williams rushed 6 times for a mere 22 yards. Was it Joe Flacco's fault that Vince Wilfork decided today was the day to have the hands-down best game of his career? Despite all that, Flacco did not fumble the ball and scrambled to avoid losing yardage; in the process of scrambling he out-performed both Rice and Williams in the ground game, making 4 runs for 27 clutch yards.
His one interception? A freakish one-handed catch by sophmore MLB Brandon Spikes, who the Ravens probably had limited tape of from this season in the pass-game as he was injured more-often than not and often used predominately on running-downs.
I heard some commentors talking about Flacco's completion rate; 22-36. That's not bad. Brady had the same, except Flacco had 2 TDs whereas Brady had only a rush TD.
The game should have gone into overtime. As a fan of the sport, I was almost disappointed that it didn't. As a Pats fan I couldn't be disappointed because Flacco clearly showed up to play. He had a great game and anyone saying otherwise doesn't know what they're talking about.
I'm sure I'll see you guys next year.
