Ravens o-line should get some credit also Joe barely got hit yesterday.

still gotta give Joe a lot credit for what he did the whole playoffs. he kinda reminds me of a Eli Manning 2.0

Flacco and Ben are both really good QB's but Flacco did better this year. You can'tcompare the two because they have ccompletely differentoffenses around them

Me neither. It's a completely overused adjective that's been beaten to death to the point of irrelevance by a bunch of fantasy football nerds.

Ill tell you mine

1. Tom Brady

3. Peyton Manning
4. Drew Breese
5. Eli Manning
----------
heres where it gets tough
6. Kaepernick
7. Ben
8. Ryan
9. Flacco

Luck RG3 and Wilson could all make arguments, but too early to call any of them consistent.

Luck, RG3 and Wilson have all played more games than Kaepernick so I think thats a little premature to have him ranked as the 6th best QB in the league.

Now regarding Ben vs. Flacco, There is no doubt that what Flacco did this post-season was impressive. He also can say he's never missed the playoffs but at the same time he's never been a pro-bowler. That really doesnt mean anything though since most of the pro bowl selections are a joke. I would say if you look at their careers as of now Ben still has the edge but Flacco has been trending upwards the last 2 years and its hard to tell what the future will be like. I still think a healthy and focused Ben is one of the best Qbs in the league.

Credibility = lost. Some people overreact like this after a bad season, though, and I understand that. Let me ask you, what has Kaepernick accomplished that Roethlisberger hasn't? Oh, he hasn't accomplished anything that Ben has? That's funny.

When Ben comes to camp and it looks like his "focus" in the off-season was a bag of Doritos... we will know we are in for another crappy year.
