While this writer believes the complete opposite, ESPN Insider posted a story on the most over-rated players in the NFL and Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco tops the list. To be a bit more accurate, Flacco's name was at the top of the list, but it did not appear to be in any specific order, although it was separated by conference between the AFC & NFC.
Although Ravens fans have every reason to go bonkers on what should be consider blasphemy here in Baltimore, ESPN Insider's KC Joyner gives his reasons behind this "ranking." When people, especially those who are considered to be experts, based rankings purely on in-depth statistics, regardless of how deep they go into detail, it infuriates those who see the big picture, which is the result of what a player and his team do out on the field.
Flacco has done nothing but win in his first four years in the league and to suggest that he is anything other than a winner should dispel any notion that he is over-rated, especially considering he is arguably only around the 10th best QB in the league.
