He also had MANY more years to learn on his time clock. Flacco looked far better from the start. We have too many needs to waste a draft pick or bad signing but if they see a better choice that wouldn't make it nessecarily a knee jerk reaction.

can't argue about years left. is what it is. And Flacco is more mobile.

But Flaco was decidely "meh" as a young QB.

As a rook he was 60% (better than now FWIW) and a rating of 80 on an 11 win team. WR's were a vet derek mason, a vet fomer pro bowl TE Todd Heap playing a rare 16 games and Mark Clayton, a decent NFL player.

Weeds with Little, Gordon and Watson was 57% with a 72 rating on a 5 win team.

So I dunno mang. I'm not seeing Dan Marino compared to Ryan Leaf here as far as rookie seasons... YMMV

Hard to quantify inaccuracy if you can't know for sure when the WR's are where they are supposed to be.

BTW - Joe's comp % was 59% this year, 2% better than Weeds. Now OBVIOUSLY I'm not saying Weeds is close to him, just saying yah gotta be careful with blucnt numbers, s'all.

I saw Joe Flaco for his first 2 - 3 seasons. And I must invoke Otter talking about the Delta Chi House seniors when they were Freshmen. "Let me tell you the story of another loser"...

LOL. Do I remember how little love Flacco got!!! Even this tear many a Blt caller doubted he could ever win the big game. Many wanted an upgrade. Now that he jogs on Chesepeake, he can write his own ticket.

Even Hoover doesn't think we have a chance to get him . :-)
