    This is what I'm saying.

    Anyone who thinks Flacco is on par with Sanchez is clueless. I freely admit that. It's ridiculous.

    And like you, I've never heard that comparision. I'm sure some yahoo has said it but so what? Like I said, a complete minority.

    Anyway, it seems like that this will become (as it always done) a circular argument.

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

    That went down at one point last year. On this board.

    Yup. There's a clear upper and a clear lower class in the NFL but the middle class is pretty much interchangeable. Sanchez is part of that lower class.

    I bet right now there are 9 teams easily who would love to have Flacco over their QB without even blinking an eye. The Eagles, Browns, Chiefs, Cardinals, Jaguars, Titans, Bills, 49ers, and Raiders would love to have Joe Flacco right now if he was available.

    And if anyone here would rather have Michael Vick, whoever QB's the Browns (over multiple years), Matt Cassel, or Carson Palmer over Joe Flacco right now, than I have nothing for you. Right now the only QB's I would absolutely take over Flacco would be the obvious choices; Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, and maybe Drew Brees.
    So you're telling me there are only two QBs you'd absolutely take over Flacco and one you "might" in Brees?

    If I somehow misinterpreted you, please let me know.

    Yep, that's what I'm saying.

    Interesting.

    So who are the two you'd take over Flacco? I'm assuming Brady and Rodgers?

    From a raw talent perspective, I'd take Brees & Ben over Joe.

    I mean I don't even disagree with Stinger all that much. There's a very clear upper class. Anyone who wouldn't trade Joe Flacco for Brees, Rodgers, Brady, or P Manning is crazy. Beyond that, shit, take Stafford, Ponder, Cutler, Schaub, Luck, Locker, Palmer, Rivers, Dalton, Flacco, Newton, Vick, Eli Manning, Ryan, Freeman, Wilson, Alex Smith, Bradford, Romo and Fitzpatrick and switch any of them out with each other and you're probably facing a no net gain scenario.

    A case could be made for Rodgers too. So there, four. Outside of that, this right here.

    Nope, I already acknowledged that you'd take Joe Flacco over Aaron Rodgers!

    Just a difference of opinion.

    Many people say that those who don't view Flacco as a top 5 QB don't appreciate him especially since the crap we as Ravens fans have seen at QB over the years.

    I look at it the other way. I think that crap we've seen has skewed some people's view of Flacco and elevated him to a level that I just don't see.

    I think the Ravens should and will re-sign him. I just don't view him in the same light as many on this board do.

    Interesting hadn't thought about it from that perspective.

    I would take Flacco over most of the second tier QBs because he still has alot of upside. 4.5 years in and Flacco's ceiling is still sky high. Can't say that about many of the 2nd tier guys.

    As RnT has said, it's really a clusterF after the clear cut guys.

    I'd take Flacco over some but not all.

    Not a real slight I don't think.
