    No, he is the most recent franchise QB to have his contract come up for renewal. If he FA, someone else would have paid him that, and losing him and Ray Lewis in the same year would have set the team back 5 years.

    Boldin was more of his "security blanket". If they lose him then Flacco will rely more on Pitta who is emerging as a very good TE.

    Smith, Pitta, Jones, Rice. Pretty good weapons if you ask me.
    who also won't need to be paid

    PAY THIS MAN MORE THAN ANYONE IN THE HISTORY OF THE NFL.
    Bingo. Realistically, the two biggest passes he made in the playoffs, the long TD passes to Jones against the Broncos and Niners, at the end of the day, ask yourself, were they great throws or were they horrible misplays by the D and great plays by the WR on throws that otherwise should have been harmless incompletions.

    If Moore breaks up that play in the Broncos game, I don't even know if the Ravens re-sign Flacco. He's the same exact player too now as he would have been then.

    People rating Flacco over Ryan? No, no, no, no, no, no, no, sighhhhhhh

    Flacco is a slightly above average QB, just like Eli. They played on a couple great teams that went on runs though. Sanchez did a couple times too

    2. Rodgers
    3. Peyton
    4. Eli
    5. Flacco
    6. Brees


    Sorry guys, Brees is not as good outside of a dome check the stats.
    Drew Brees road QB rating since Flacco has been in league:

    2008: 80.3
    2009: 98.1
    2010: 91.8
    2011: 100.7
    2012: 90.1

    Average: 92.2

    Joe Flacco QB rating year by year:

    2008: 80.3
    2009: 88.9
    2010: 93.6
    2011: 80.9
    2012: 87.7

    Average: 86.3

    What IS u talkin' about?

    You compare Flacco to Kolb and Alex Smith?
    You can't read, that's your problem.

    Not to mention in the middle of the season, Smith was playing considerably better than Flacco. People have short memories, and trolls like PatsFanTx will say anything to get a reaction, but Flacco had a mediocre season before a few of his hail mary's dropped in the playoffs. Flacco was a non-entity in the regular season.

    Jets fans would cut their left nut off to have a QB as good as Flacco.

    If I could not get the top 12 or 13 QBs in the league, sure, I'd take Flacco. You can troll better than this, defending Flacco is hilarious even for you

    So because Flacco beat your weak, chokejob playoff team, he's great? Newsflash bro, Sanchez did too. And made it look easy

    Are you still enjoying the Jets Super Bowl victory from 3 years ago?

    Pretty sad that fans like you think one divisional playoff win is the equivalent to a Super Bowl win.

    But whatever floats your boat.

    Flacco's salary was $6.7 million in 2012 with a cap number of $8.8 million. What did he do to go from $8.8 million to $20 MILLION A SEASON???




    Based on his base salary, he TRIPLED his income! WTF???

    Exactly. If Flacco just won the jets a super bowl everyone on this board would be ok w that contract.

    Thank you for your common sense statement.

    And they would be fools. Good teams don't make contracts to reward past performance, they make them based on future expectations. Flacco's playoff rating was 30 points higher than his regular season rating and his overall career rating. What are the chances Flacco takes a gigantic leap next season to justify the salary he's about to pull in?

    Again, perfect circumstances for Flacco, the Ravens all but had to do it if only for PR reasons, but automatically handing out a mega-contract to a QB because he won the Super Bowl is a great way to send your team on the decline unless you have reason to think he'll justify that contract going forward. There's very little chance Flacco's future performance matches his pay.

    TX, if Welker makes that catch in the Super Bowl, would you have signed him to a monster WR deal, or treated the situation the same as it played out?

    Sure they are over paying for him but they're not fools as you suggest. Like it or not, his value sky rocketed at the exact right time for him. And while there is a PR aspect to this, the football aspect predominates. The Ravens cannot let their talented, young QB go even if he needs to be paid $20m instead of $14m which he should probably get.

    Giants had the same issue with Eli...ditto the Jets with Chad. If you want to keep what you think to be a franchise QB, you need to step up and pay them. At the time, Eli didn't deserve to be the highest paid QB in the league, but he won a Super Bowl, his name was Manning - you don't cut bait in that situation over a few million. And while Chad was a different story, somewhat, with the Jets and clearly warranted less than what Eli/Flacco got (on a relative basis), the Jets had to make a commitment to him - just the way it works. With Eli it worked out. Chad? Not so much.
