ESPN's James Walker Says Flacco Has Stongest Arm In AFC North

In his AFC North blog, ESPN's James Walker says Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco has the strongest arm not only in the division, but perhaps in the entire league. Unwilling to name Flacco the best QB in the AFC North, Walker notes that Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is the most clutch QB in the division, which should be no surprise to Ravens fans.

As much as Ravens fans don't want to admit it, Roethlisberger is by far the best QB in the division, ....right now. The Ravens signalcaller is poised to make a run at the division title and perhaps even a Super Bowl, but until Flacco can win a game against their rivals in a game that Roethlisberger is playing, we cannot lay claim to the title of having the best QB in the AFC North.

With Flacco as the Ravens QB, we have not beaten the Steelers in a game that Big Ben has played since 2008, If Flacco can succeed at breaking this trend in 2011 and have solid games along with the victories, which to date he has been unable to do, then at that point the Ravens can say they have the best QB in the AFC North. Until then...
