    Re: Flacco 9th on Jaws QB lists



    Give Flacco Wayne and Harrison in their heyday, or the Saints receiving core, or...... AND that type of pass first system and I'd love to see what his stats would look like.

    Wanna really compare stats, compare his to McNair's career wise, now I know Steve was on the tailend of his career but still. He was considered a top 10 QB in his day.

    #9 is about right.

    With Cutler coming in at #8, only SB winning QBs + Phillip Rivers stand between Joe and the top slot. Not bad at all.

    Boller wasnt half the QB flacco is, his mental side and accuracy was non existent, whether he could throw hard or not. I dont think arm strength makes or breaks a qb, but when you have two identical QBs in every other aspect, the one with the stronger arm is going to be a better player in that scenario.

    Would everybody please stop quoting "sgtcouchpotato," who seems to prefer the unpopular side of sensitive message board subjects and can't/won't ever deal with actual facts and communicates mostly with points that are (a) irrelelvant or (b) exaggerations. There's a word for message board posters who exhibit that behavior.

    Please. Stop with the quotes.

    Thank you.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    If I had to rank them, there are six that you could arrange as you wish: Brady, Brees, Manning, Manning, Rodgers and Roethlisberger. Then, you have Rivers, who I could put ahead of Flacco. I would probably put Flacco ahead of Cutler, but I can see the argument.
    Because IMO one of the things he needs to work on is pocket presence and feeling the pressure. He takes too many sacks/whacks. When he gets rid of the ball, he's amonst the top 10 in the league for sure. I'd like to see him scramble and/or get rid of it, even out of bounds, a little more often.

    agree 100%

    i believe only blaine gabbert and matt moore put the ball on the turf more than flacco this past year

    certainly one of those things that he has improved and can continue to, but in this system itll never be good. Long routes take time and lines can only protect so long, especially ours. Id like to see him do more roll outs as well, kind of like Shanahan used to do with Plummer and cutler just not as often.

    has he had clutch moments in big games? sure.. has he had as many, (if not more) turnovers in big games? yes..
    How many games has he won in the regular season? How many games has he won in the post-season? How many times has he gone up against one of the best defenses in the NFL year after year? If we are seriously debating if Flacco is better than Romo, I question how closely you follow the NFL...

    Honestly, top 10 is a perfect rating for Joe. Definitely has the strongest arm in the NFL. Can make all the throws. Has had a great record in the playoffs. Has had a great record during the regular season. Elite stats? I think we can all say no, but he is improving and is in a run-first offense.
