    The "Flacco Thread" (Merged from 5 threads)



    Watching Drew Brees and Matt Ryan this evening has got me thinking (which is always dangerous):

    1) Is Joe a top 10 QB? top 15?
    2) If the answer to one of the questions above is "yes," does a franchise tag make any sense? (more of a rhetorical question)
    3) What do we do if we let him test the FA market, and someone is willing to pay him "above market?"

    Not this again...

    Joe will get a long term contract here. I don't care if people consider him a top 10 or 15 QB. I really don't care how much he's paid. As long as it doesn't kill our salary cap. Joe will not see free agency.

    Worth...less. According to some and the NFL media.

    Why not - get a bargain for a QB that has the ability to win a SB - regardless if he's thought of as elite or not. I say talk him down some more! :lol:

    I see more like 7 years 110-115. Worth every penny because at some point, the cap is going to blow up and 17 million is going to look like a steal for a franchise QB.

    I could see that also. The only reason I say 6 years is because I think Joe will want to setup another big contract before he retires. That's just my speculation though. 7/110-115 wouldn't surprise me.

    Joe will get paid more than "market" value whatever that is. What's the alternative? Joe may or may not be "elitie", but we can win a Super Bowl with Joe. Unless you can guarantee a replacement who is as good or better, we have to pay him. I get frustrated with the sub par performances on the road, but also wonder what would have been if Joe came out in 2003 instead of Kyle.

    The first rule of negotiation is that you should always be willing to walk away from the table. Otherwise, we'd pretty much have to give him the keys to the castle.

    I don't disagree, but if Joe walks away from the table, does he get keys to another castle.

    Joe is going to get paid. A lot. He will be on the Ravens at least another 7 years or more.

    I just watched the elite Brees throw five INTs with another taken off for a defensive penalty.

    Going by the fact every QB has a terrible day, I'm willing to bet the Ravens consider Joe a top 10 QB and will pay him based on that.

    Yup, and Joe's worst day this year was a 1 td, 2 int game. Not even close to as bad as what Brees did tonight, or Matt Ryan a couple of weeks ago.
