    Because they have eerily similar stats to date except Joe has fewer receiving weapons, plays better defenses, and does it outdoors, and wins in the playoffs yet for some reason, Ryan is viewed as the better QB. It's gratifying to some of us to see that view shifting as Joe continues to play very well against the best D's in the league.

    That pick six he had in that game was one of the worst passes in NFL playoff history, and much worse than any play Flacco has ever had.

    The media build you up just to pull you down

    Sure, Ryan has been getting tonnes of positive press since he came to the league

    But if Falcons go one and done the media will turn on him
    Their GM mortgaging so much on just one draft selection does not help either

    So what will it take for the media to do a 180 on Flacco?

    Now, we have the opportunity to see if the perception will change.

    Watching postgame the answer is no, it hasn't. His name literally has not been mentioned ONE time.

    In Atlanta, however, the bloom is finally coming off the rose. I would like to cite a few examples but the board has been crashed for the last hour LOL. But from what I was reading there last night there was pressure on Ryan to play well and step up and the questions were out there about him.

    Win 3 more games.

    Then again, the media is only just now starting to warm up to Eli...not surprisingly, since his brother is gone.

    So Atlanta went from the #1 seed in the NFC last year to the 5 after throwing those draft picks at Jones?

    The GM should take some heat too...

    Ryan was shutout for heck's sake!

    I will be curious to see if the worm turns on Coach Smith too.

    Even if Joe helps the Ravens win the Super Bowl, the media might focus on the rush offense and defense. Joe will be unfairly criticized for playing smart football.

    I would LOVE for Joe to play horribly smart football for 3 more games!

    I don't think the Ravens will be able to get by the Patriots and then Saints/Packers with a care-taker QB. The fact of the matter is that for the Ravens to win the SB, Flacco is going to have to step-up at some point.

    We (and everybody else) are about to find out what we have at the QB position.

    Seriously what is up with that. Just had an arguement with a Patriots fan about this. He said Flacco had a terrible year because he didn't throw for 400+ yards in a game once. I counter with the Ravens have a defense and Ray Rice. Joe doesn't have to win every game with his arm like Brady does.

    No, the perception about Ryan has not changed. No post season win again and he had a big hand in it. Should make it fair for Ryan and make all teams build a dome stadium.

    There boards sound like us debating Flacco. Half of the fans blame everyone but Ryan and the other half blames only Ryan.
