Fans across the world are tired of the debate. Ravens fans don't care whether others think he is. Opposing fans for the most part think the narrative is ridiculous. So why does the question whether Joe Flacco is elite seem to pop up so regularly?
Workplace evaluations mean more when they come from others who work closely with the subject, so wide receiver Torrey Smith would seem to be well equipped to answer the question of Joe Flacco's eliteness more than an observer like you or me.
When asked the question, Torrey was ready. Here was his definitive response:

So there you have it. Joe's job review is in, and he has been deemed unequivocally elite by a close coworker and peer of his. This should end the discussion once and for all!
