You have no idea how bad/good I make Flacco out to be. I think you are imagining things.
You are one of many around here who think that when someone questions Flacco's talent in any way, praises any other QB in any way, or suggests that possibly Flacco isn't assuredly destined for greatness that somehow that person thinks he sucks and is claiming he sucks.
Excuses offered when defending Joe leave the question of his greatness unanswered at best. When you say, Joe can't look as good as Brady because he doesn't have the receivers/coaches/O-line (insert excuse), that does not mean he would look as good as Brady if he had all that stuff. But people constantly argue as if this were the case.
I absolutely could get on board with the idea that there is no way in hell Joe could put up elite numbers running our "safe" offense with our players. But to leap to the conclusion that this means he would put up the performances of these other guys given the same environment is a fallacy. It isn't impossible that he could look worse than he does now if he were asked to do what those guys are asked to do in terms of reading defenses, taking risks, and always being asked to outscore the other guy. No one can be sure of anything. All we can do is make subjective judgments based on what we do see.
And in that regard, there are many around here who are veiwing the performances through a prism of preconceived bias. And from where I sit, those biased in defense of Joe far outnumber those biased against Joe, though some of the former have been mugged by reality a bit lately and are not quite as egregious. I have no doubt you disagree and think there are more of the latter. But we will have to agree to disagree as to the ratio. That you think I am making Joe out to be bad when I have said nothing to indicate that makes me conclude that you are being defensive. But again, that is only my perception.
Brady has never had a game-winning touchdown drive in the playoffs in his career. His two chances? Failed miserably. Barely made it to midfield in the AFCCG against the colts before throwing a terrible interception.
