He certainly wasn't yesterday but I think a lot of that can be laid at the feet of your OL and OC.
Why does this thread topic continue on and on and on.
Surely it is time to retire it.
I think it is very useful. We don't have 10 threads like we have on the National page about one subject. Mom hardly ever comes on this board so we actually have fair minded mods. They will merge threads that are the same and have a hidden agenda to them. There is usually no hate over here and Joe Flacco is actually a thread that could lead to 25 threads all about the same thing. So love him or hate him.... this thread is about Flacco and how he does week in and week out. It is also nice to see how some that are against Flacco can at times give him credit.
Joe will be Cool Joe once again this Sunday
I can't believe Joe was so good at the start of the game, 10 for 10 and 14 points scored on a pretty good Cleveland defense. Than Cam instead of taking a run here and there to close out the last 1 min 40 seconds of the half he goes pass crazy, gives the ball back and Cleveland scores. Well Cam Joe went sour for the next quarter and a half, no adjustments at half and lucky for the Ravens Joe got hot again. At one time only 1 first down until the final 5 minutes in the 4th quarter. I think Harbs said something to him on this matter as well.
Time once again to see Joe as the real deal. Go Ravens
21 of 33 for 341 yards (16.2 yds. per completion)...
3 TD passes and one TD rush (1 int, no sacks and no fumbles)
Passer rating of 115.8
Only QB of top 6 (in passing yardage) who won today (including Ryan and Palmer).
I won't say the "E" word (because I still don't know what the term "elite" means) but I will say the "W" word - Winner!
Amazing what Joe can do when he actually HAS an O-line and a pocket, the WRs hold onto the ball (for the most part), and the scheme is varied and effective. I still maintain that NO other QB in the NFL could even accomplish what Joe has done with the crap hand he's dealt most of the time.
Nevertheless, you play the teams on your schedule and they took care of business.
We can really make a statement by coming out crisp next week on the road in Prime Time. Eyes will be on us and the pressure will be on.
Flacco was VERY good yesterday and it was great to see. As usual, his best throws were in play action and that's because the Ravens ran the ball 28 times and kept Oakland's back seven off balance. They're average per rush wasn't good but the important thing was they didn't give up on it. Maybe against the Raiders it wouldn't have mattered in the end anyway but going into Pittsburgh, it's the perfect mind set. I think Cameron is slowly but surely realizing that.
just want to point out the Ravens haven't lost in Pittsburgh since the 2009 season...I'm pretty sure Flacco was the quarterback during that time....some people complain just to complain...
and just to point more of the obvious...the Ravens were not a very good road team either year....
