    My Flacco Theory



    Joe is a good QB, sometimes Joe is a great QB but he's not consistent

    Since Joe came into the league he's never missed the playoffs, never failed to win a playoff game. Each year they seem to progress and they finally win the division and fall a play short of the Superbowl. Joe's reality is that the playoffs come easy, maybe somewhere along the way he stopped working as hard or he just takes it for granted.

    Another year, another playoff run...I hope he turns it on again come playoff time, I know he can...its just this consistency thing

    Just some thoughts...I hope he's one of the hardest workers, needs to be

    This theory has less to support it than three legged pool table.
    My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging. -Hank Aaron

    I don't buy it. If anything, being so close has made Joe and others want it MORE.

    I highly doubt Flacco has become complacent and lazy.

    My theory is that we cannot fairy gauge how good Flacco can be (or is) until he as at least 2 years in a modern offense.

    This is depressingly accurate.

    Yes, EXACTLY that and an above average center in front of him who can drive forward on running plays (resulting in 1st downs on 3rd and short) and keep from being pushed back into Joe (so he can step into his throws) on passing plays.

    An OC which can be imaginative and design passing plays that result in the receivers getting separation like every other team in the NFL. The skill players ARE here.

    Joe's problem (to the extent that he has one) is Cam.

    Cam consistently puts Joe in plays, formation, schemes and personnel groupings that do not make maximum use of his skill set. The guy with the square peg in the round hold graphic on his posts has it nailed. The two Ray Rice runs and a 5 yard pass play when you need 8 yards offense also tends to be a drive killer.

    The Ravens still haven't surrounded Joe with the talent that he needs on the O line - keeping Joe upright is 75% of the game. Having two tight ends of which only one (Pitta) can catch is also an issue.

    There's not a quarterback in this league who could flurish in Cam's system.

    The fact that they've done so well is a testament to Joe and the team - inspite of Cam.

    Didn't 2 QB's in San Diego flourish in Cam's system? One won a SB the other usually is in the top 5 QB rating in the league (usually)? Just wondering what system you speak of.

    Let me ask you this, do you like anything at all ever about Cam's play calling? What did you think of his play calling in the AFCCG? I never seen half those plays (which leads me to ask where did those plays go)

    I know you hate Cam, I know I bust your bowls about this, but honestly, you see nothing good from Cam at all? I dont like his play calling SOMETIMES, but most the times they work.

    Huh?

    Brees didn't win a SB with Cam. He won it in Sean Payton's offense...which is COMPLETELY different than Cam's.

    And Rivers was good, but didn't experience his best play until after Cam left.
