*sigh* goodbye Boldin, Kruger, Reed, at LEAST. . .

Ya, and he went 1-4 in the five games before that. It was a great run, it all came together....but none of this is being talked about without the bonehead play by the Denver D. That's the nature of the NFL. Let's be honest, there was tons of doubt about Joe Flacco in Ravenland after that terrible finish to the regular season. And not even most of the homers were expecting the Ravens or Flacco to go on that run. Mostly there was a bunch of vitriol being spewed at the team by their own fans. Up until this run, Joe had not proved his doubters wrong. Quite frankly (and I'm not referring to Steeler fans here),, a lot of people are still gonna be doubting him.

I am doubting that he is Joe Montana. . . that is a healthy, reasonable doubt. But for the right price, I don't have any doubts about Joe. Unfortunately, I seriously doubt that the right price will be on the table after the superbowl run.

P.S. I won't make apologies about Joe Flacco taking advantage of poor coverage by Denver. His ability to recognize and exploit poor coverage is a benefit. People call that play a hail mary, but I don't really see it that way, we still have 40 seconds on the clock and generally in a hail mary there are more bodies downfield. This was Joe throwing into double coverage and letting Jacoby make a play.

Patriots, Tom Brady agree to three-year, $27 million extension

Posted by Michael David Smith

Tom Brady has a new contract with the Patriots, and itís a rare instance of a high-profile playerís contract being notable for not breaking the bank.

According to Peter King of Sports Illustrated, Brady has agreed to a deal that adds three years to his commitment to the Patriots, while paying him $27 million in additional money. Heís now locked up through the 2017 season, when heíll be 40 years old.

King reports that Brady will get a $3 million signing bonus immediately and will play for base salaries of $7 million in 2015, $8 million in 2016 and $9 million in 2017.

-- Want Brady money, Joey? I'm sure Ozzie would agree to this kind of deal.

Brady knows where his best chance at a ring is and wants to make sure there's enough money to get/keep weapons. Flacco just wants his payday.

I don't blame him. Brady has already gotten paid, this is his third time at the table. The last one was worth 72mil with 48mil guaranteed including a signing bonus. He doesn't need the money. Good old Joey hasn't gotten paid yet, I ain't mad at him trying to get paid.

Can't fault Flacco at all; very different circumstances, not the least of which is Brady's 35 and Flacco's 27. Unique situation for sure; Brady's already rich and has a wife that is staggeringly wealthy. Nontheless, I don't see a lot of athletes (pretty much none) that'll step up to do this for the betterment of the team. Peyton was rich too; he got something like 5yrs./$94M.

Mike Preston of The Baltimore Sun does not want to break the bank to pay Flacco

The Ravens are being smart and very cautious in their negotiations with star quarterback Joe Flacco.

So far, they haven't caved in to the demands of Flacco's agent, Joe Linta, who says Flacco should be paid as much as Peyton Manning and Drew Brees, who are averaging more than $20 million per season....

Flacco isn't a Manning or a Brees, or a Tom Brady, either. In those particular situations, you risk losing other big-name players and pay the quarterbacks astronomical salaries because they are that good.

Flacco isn't....

I understand Linta's request. He is basically a no-name trying to make a big splash in the agent market by securing a big-money contract for Flacco....

Somehow, the Ravens have to find a way to pacify Flacco and his agent with a deal that publicly sounds as good as the ones signed by Manning and Brees but doesn't quite pay as much.

Update - the signing bonus was 30 mil not 3 mil. It was a discount but a very slight discount.

And we can't forget Marsha's endorsement deals either. He's not hurting for cash at all.

Hell, Michael Jordan made fat stacks mostly on endorsement deals and his NBA contract was just chump change for the tables in Vegas in comparison. I'm sure Tommy's situation is similar.
