    Joe Flacco "Almost There" (not quite top 10)



    smh... when will these football analysts learn? Granted the article is for THIS YEAR and not a lifetime of work. But still, C'MON MAN!

    Philip Rivers who has never won anything and owns a losing record this year is ranked in the top 5 along with fellow loser record QB golden boy Matt Ryan. Flacco at 2-1 can't crack the top 10. He's "almost there". Quite comical actually.

    All about them fantasy stats man. Nobody actually cares about who wins and how you have to play to win a football game.

    Credit to Rivers this year. He's playing well and really doesn't have much to throw to

    I'm tired of hearing how good Rivers is every year from these national anaylst. The guy hasn't won shit. That Cleveland 3rd stringer just threw for 300+ yards and 3 TDs. I'm surprised he didn't crack this idiots top 10.

    I don't see where the author is being unfair.

    As you pointed out, the author is simply looking at this year so far.

    Rivers has had a better season than Joe this year so far.

    Going 1-2 is a great accomplishment apparently.

    Funny to see no Tom Brady in the top 10. Also ANYONE who ever puts Tony Romo that high is high.... and completely going by numbers and not watching any game being played on the field. I don't care WTF Romo's stats are right now. He WILL fuck it all up when it counts the most. And he may just make it into the playoffs this year for a change... but only because the NFC E blows this year so far.

    I don't remember where I heard it or read it but, Tony Romo is the exact opposite of Joe Flacco. Romo is a Fantasy Stats machine. He will rack up numbers all game or when it matters the least and then screw it all up when it counts. Flacco will look completely average all game long but he'll make the key plays that matter the most when you need them the most.

    That's why Flacco has won a Super Bowl and taken a decent his team with average weapons at WR to the Playoffs 5 years in a row and counting... and Romo has squandered elite talent at the WR position year after year.

    The bigger joke is the fact that they are actually ranking QB's based on the first 3 games of a season.

    Exercise in futility.

    John Eisenberg has a great article about this very subject. Eisenberg says Joe is earning every penny of his contract.

    There is so much more to being a QB than gaudy stats. It's knowing how to manage the game as it unfolds which Joe is great at. People use the term "game manager" for a QB like it's a curse. The two best game managers are Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. Not only can these guys throw a football, but they know how to manage the flow of the game, and so does Joe Flacco.

    I never understood why the term "game manager" is a bad thing. I want my QB to be able to manage a game. They have to know the situation they are in and act accordingly. Joe can go downfield at any time, but there is a time when it's best to just take the easy completion to move the sticks or throw the ball away if nothing is there.

    This is also one of the reasons why I think this new shift to mobile/more athletic QBs will be a fad. IMO, your field general can't be the guy running the ball all over the place. The QB has to manage the game and strategize on how to get to the ball to the play makers. I think the smart, pocket QBs will always have the most success in this league. Right now there's no one better than Peyton Manning. Joe is in the top of 5 that category along with Brady, Rodgers and Brees.

    1. Peyton Manning
    2. Drew Brees
    3. Aaron Rodgers
    4. Joe Flacco
    5. Tom Brady

    Statistically maybe so.
