Flacco vs Big Baby Ben
Flacco has led game-winning drives against the Steelers in Pittsburgh TWO years in a row. Not to mention Tebow picked apart your D and he's the most inaccurate QB in football.
Flacco didnt choke in the playoffs last year, Evans and Cundiff did. He out played Brady at his own place and was a dropped TD from the SB. I really don't see how he NEVER steps up in big games (I know he doesn't all the time, but he definitely has in his career). Hell, Peyton didn't go to the SB until his 9th season and he's one of the best in the league.
Not to mention Flacco had to throw to rookies and first year starters all season after the lockout.
Do you honestly think Big Ben was the reason the Steelers won their Superbowls? He had the lowest passer rating for a winning QB in SB history and he played like shit in the last one he played in against a team that was mostly playing their backups. If he didn't have a good defense, he'd be in the same boat as Flacco.
I know Flacco had a bad season statistically this past year and that had to do with reason #2. Not an excuse, but those were top-10 defenses he was facing (in fact I think he played the most top-10 Ds in the league last year). But Flacco HAS had clutch moments (2008 playoffs against TEN, 2 games in Pittsburgh, the game in Atlanta 2 two years ago, the AFC champ. this past year (if Evans holds onto the damn ball)). He may not do it enough or consistently but he doesnt always choke.
Flacco has the most wins in NFL history for a QB in their first 4 years, but no Super Bowls. Not every team is going to have instant success with a young QB like the Pats and Steelers, and I can live with that. Like I said before, Peyton puts up good numbers all the time and only went to his first Super Bowl in his 9th season.
I keep forgetting some of you Steelers fans think you're God's ****ing gift to the world and bitch and whine when someone tells you otherwise (Don't forget your "WE GOT 6 RINGS" excuse whenever they lose). Must still be mad that Flacco "sucks" so bad yet owned your team the last 2 years.
