Yes but this is Joe Flacco not Peyton Manning or Dan Marino, those guys are HOFers, and are considered to be the best QB's never to win a SB (that was what they said about Peyton before he won one), when has anyone even put Flacco up there for the "best QB to never win a SB" statement?
I was looking up stats of Flacco vs Ryan and came across a interesting article. It basically breaks the qb down to the talent that is surrounding them. Never really thought of it this way, take a look.
I think that breaking 4,000 yards is a big deal considering Cam's offense has never produced one.
Sure, 4K cant hold a flame to what guys like Brees, Stafford, and some others have done, but for our town that is a pretty swell milestone.

Need to let him go and sign Alex Smith instead.
Alright, I am officially confused.
4,000 yards passing isn't important.
A 2:1 TD/INT Ratio isn't important, not even counting his rushing TDs.
But, playoff wins aren't important, because he only rode Ray Rice and the defense?
Minimum amount of turnovers
Avoiding sacks where you can
4th quarter performance
Play off wins
Ultimately- SB rings
Joe has proven he can excel in all of these areas, but it needs to be more consistent if he ever wants to be considered/paid like a top 5 QB in this league. He certainly has the wins, and even play off wins, a SB would really put him in the conversation this year.
And on the last point, in the play offs Joe has kind of rode his defense in all but two games where had had a great game @KC and @NE.
