That said I would not consider Flacco elite but a very good game manager at this point. It has been said before but there were some lucky floaters especially against Denver.
It is definately a toss up between Romo and Flacco. Romo the better player but has not done anything in the playoffs. If I had to choose I would probably pick Romo.
I think it's more safe to say that all three are pretty close. Romo doesn't have the bling pedigree to prove it but his numbers are pretty comparable to Eli's recently. Flacco just had the playoff run of a lifetime (his regular season numbers were nothing special at all) that will now coincide with this negotiations with his team.
