They can put that on his plaque when Flacco is inducted into Canton

Too bad for the Ravens the season did not end when the Steelers without Roethlisberger lost to the Ravens in that game in week 4

After he turned that corner, Flacco coughed up the ball on the Polamalu strip when all he had to do was run clock & punt, then failed to bring the Ravens back after the Steelers took the lead in Baltimore in December, notably short hopping the ball to a wide open receiver in the left flat that would have kept the Ravens last drive alive. That loss screwed the Ravens chance fro a playoff home game.

Then he wet the bed in the second half of the playoff loss at Heinz as a key contributor in the Ravens team effort to cough up a 21-7 halftime lead.

Ask any unbiased fan in the league who they would want as their QB if asked to choose between Roethlisberger and Flacco - we both know the answer to that question.

The difference at QB is why the Steelers have not lost to the Ravens when Roethlisberger plays since 2006.
