Come on folks, stop the hate.
hate ? no hatin here.. hell i hope he cons 25 million a season out of ozzy. every dime that they pay joe cool takes away from the rest of the team ...
all i've done was point out facts. the facts are that up until the playoffs joe cool was considered a second tier slightly better than average qb by EVERYONE including most raven fans. if market dictates that that the ratbirds forget about the 5 years of sub 90 qb ratings and focus only on his last 4 games ... then by all means

what did flacco do in the second half of the super bowl while SF was making a comeback ?....all i remember was a 30 yd hail mary to bolden...

When only one player is making $20 mil and it's a guy who's put up good numbers throughout the years AND have won a superbowl, they certainly aren't using his market value. I really really really doubt he'd get anything close to that if he tested free agency. Ravens just being short sighted and it's going to hurt them bad when they can't sign anybody to help him.

No hate here, I consider him a top 8 QB easily. I just don't think he merits the pay of a top tier QB. But he did what he had to do this postseason for sure.

If this fucks over the Ravens, let him have 20 mil a year. I hope it gives them cap hell and the (un)-ability to retain talented players.

Go ahead Baltimore, please.

Not that I don't like competition, but hey if they suck for years I'm happy.

He'll get the money. At minimum, Baltimore will franchise him and he'll make $20 mil. Then they'll work out a long-term deal.

It's great for Flacco - he'll get paid and paid a TON of money.
But its bad for the city & fans of Baltimore in the end - they're going to have to dump talent elsewhere. Look what happened in New Orleans - the greedy Drew Brees took all the money for himself and as godawful as their defense was last year, they STILL have to purge due to cap issues w/the Brees contract putting a huge strain on the team.
Unfortunately, thats where the market is headed - it's going to get harder and harder to field teams like the Ravens had last year that were strong across the board - RB, QB, WR's, everywhere on defense, etc. Those days are going bye-bye.

Thank god Ben's contract was already signed a few years ago. Can you imagine what he's be up for today if his contract was due? There would be another 20, 22+ miillion a year....

Posts I expect to see in the Ravens forum next season:

1. The $20 million man just threw three picks and cost us the game!
2. We paid this guy $20 and he quit on us.
3. New $20 million dollar suit....same old Joe Flacco
4. Really? 9-7? Way to earn your $20 million, Joe.
5. How can a guy making $20 million lose to the Steelers......twice?
