Wonder if Cam can use this to help recruit qbs to LSU?
Most overpaid one in history as well(not counting Jamarcus here). I like Flacco's gamer attitude but he's not in the class of the guys that are paid in that neighborhood. Just my opinion but I've never seen him as a top flight, elite level QB. He won the Super Bowl and good for him but Mark Rypien did too while looking like the best QB in the league(he was magical that year) and he was nowhere near it. Nature of the league these days and I understand it. Besides, NFL money is nowhere near legit these days. He has a bad couple of years and he doesn't see most of that money.
Dumbest move in QB history. Hes not the overriding reason that team won. The Ravens were put in a bad spot on this one and I think they are choosing poorly. They should take a cue from the StL Cardinals when they refused to pay Pujols ridiculous money long term. And just who else is driving the price this high?
I don't see Flacco as that elite QB; however, he's pretty darn close. If the Ravens allowed him to throw it more, then perhaps he would have similar numbers and we would see a different Flacco. We also have to remember that the last time the Ravens won the Superbowl they turned their QB loose and then spent the next eight years trying to find another one. I don't think they want to go through that again.
But Dilfer was a known "has-been" at that time. Everyone knew he was not a front line starter. I like Flacco...just not at $20M/yr
The only bad thing about playing in a superbowl is that a teams players become over valued. This happens every year.
Good for him. It will just make it that much harder for the Ravens to repeat.

This is such a head scratcher that I don't really know where to begin. Flacco is a good NFL QB but to toss that type of money at him
