At home.
They went away from what they've done so well for 18 games, fast paced snap snap snap.  There wasn't a better opportunity all season long to do that than today.  Billy Boy out coached himself today.

RE: Flacco, you all need to stop presenting him as something he wasn't.  The dude was 5-4 coming into this post season.  With a post season comp% of under 54% in a passing era and a rating of 79.  He's 7-4 now, with no rings as of yet.  

Some of you are gobbling his knob as if he's an intense LB who got away with murder 1.

"Donny, ur out of ur element."

He's a Lee Evans drop from 2 SBs & a better W% & possibly leading a B2B title run.

I have no idea what's not to like about Flacco & Ozzie would no sooner part with him than you would Dianne Lane in a teddy.

There's a dozen QB's a drop, or a FUMBLE away from a SB.  BFD.  He's a game manager with a big enough arm and just enough mobility to win games with help.  If this were the 80's or early 90's he'd probably be a HOFer at the end of the line.

But he isn't any of that, you need only watch him.  He does NOTHING better than anyone else.  

Would I want him as the QB of my Browns, sure, b/c of context, he's a proven vet that is better than what we have.  Is he so good you pass up on trying to obtain the next best prospect when the chance comes, hell no.

I'm not stupid JB.  If I'm in between Diane/the hubby and Sandra Bullock my attention is going Sandra's way.

RE: FLACCO 


Serious blind spot here Donny.

Not saying Flacco is end-all, be-all, but he made pinpoint passes all over the field today. And there is not a single great QB that doesn't need some kind of help. The NE defense could not stop the Ravens tonight. Denver had them beat, and lost their damn minds, but Flacco still had enough arm and guts to throw a 70 bomb onto their mental lapse.

Listening to you, you'd think he was a schmuck riding Ray's coattails. Right now, I think it's Ray bumperhitching Flacco.

Rogers, Manning, Ryan and the great Brady are all making tee times. Flacco plays another week. Scoreboard.

Flacco won the game, he gets his props.  My issue is the revisionist history that Flacco is the benefactor of.  His sacred post season resume etc.  It's crap, it's bleh, coming into this season.  The guy can play, he has his moments no doubt, but plenty of QBs do.  But he also missed his moments, often.  I mean he played well today but he wasn't special.  He missed two throws in particular that at the time were big misses, not something elite special guys miss and walk away from.  

This is his first post season in which he hasn't lost a game yet, but you'd think the complete opposite by how they talk during the game in by the posts in here sometimes.

He was not special today by any means, he simply got the job done, when he needed to.  To ignore the effort his defense gave him today by making plays is crap.  Flacco scored 28pts, NE only failed to do that 4 times all season.  Think about that.

I didn't think he could play lights-out three weeks in a row. Much respect.

That's what I'm talking about, he hasn't played lights out at all, not once this post season, not once.

He's played well, and put together a couple of nice stretches, that is it.  Has yet to put up a complete game at all, hell he's barely completed 50% of his passes.

A huge factor today was what's his name (DB) from NE that went down, even the post game analysis covers that aspect and how things changed from there.

Credit to Joe for making those throws with said DB out, but my God he wasn't borderline crap before that.

Flacco had 1 completion in the first quarter, 6 in that half.

8 TDs, 0 INTs over the past three weeks and a passer rating of 106.3 in the AFC championship game.

You're on an island.

FUDU, I really didn't think the issue was whether I'd take Joe Flacco over X . I thought was whether a great FO would let him walk to make cap. In that sense as a still relatively young QB just approaching his prime I'd say his performance this post season, and last for that matter, shatters that standard by any measure beyond any reason.

At this point in a quarterback league Joe Flacco is literally the last player Ozzie would let go. Whether that makes him better than Matt Stafford is irrelevant.

First, agreed, Flacco isn't going anywhere, nor should he from their perspective.

Second, we should not be willing to pay him even if he were, not us, not now, no how.

Eh, I think you and I both know that the rivalry is fueled on the gridiron.  Although I wasn't aware of just how dominant we have been on the court in the last 14-16 meetings.

DU - "Flacco scored 28pts, NE only failed to do that 4 times all season. Think about that."

NE - 6 games against Fins, Jets, Bills............BR - 6 games against Browns, Steelers, Bengals - think about that.

Gad,

Dan Shaughnessy, the Globe writer who covers the Pats and Red Sox said as much in a talk with Mike Francesa today.  The Pats have a soft division. It isn't until the playoffs they meet a hard nosed team. Again this year, their soft schedule had them playing a soft team, Texans, and it wasn't until the final they met a team that could bring it.

The pats are not a soft team. They out-physical the AFCE. Then again, the AFCE is not the black and blue divison. 

The pats our physicalled the Colts and the Rams to get to or win  SBs. This time,with Gronkowski out and not having a tough guy as a WR, such as Boldin, they were done in.

You are in league with the Boston writers and radio guys and also Eric Mangini, who said as much. The refs let the team play hard ball. The pats(due to injury) were not able to keep up. Being the toughest kid in the AFCE is not the same as being the toughest kid in the AFC.  San Fran may have the same probleme come SB Sundayl

I don't know..SFO is not soft. Their pass D is not great, so once again Balt will throw. However, like the Brownies, their DL is nasty and can pressure Flacco, who is not the most mobile.

K2S
I didn't see much pressure on Ryan. One technical sack. Given that time Flacco will toast them
