That is the weakest line of argument. Sports fans routinely refer to their fans as "we" and that includes Steelers fans. Just stop.

Being able to run the ball no matter what has given him added security as well. But to honestly put Joe's name near Tavaris Jackson or even hint at it is stupid sorry.
flaco 51.4 completion % - jackson 63.1 %
agreed , it's an insult to jackson.

It's that low. Wow I didn't know that. I still think though Flacco is better than Jackson but I think Flacco has been helped by having a terrific running back like Rice and his D isn't shabby either. I think he's an above average QB but I still think his problem is he crumbles in big games. He looks to be getting better I'll admit.

Other than this year Flacco plays well in the regular season as long as the game isn't that important. With Dilfer you knew what you were going to get, with Flacco in the playoffs, who knows. As mentioned, the days of "game management" QB's winning SB's is over.

Flaaco doesn't have teh clutch gene. I think he's a big liability in big games especially ones that are undecided in the 4th quarter

Flacco's lack of clutch is one of the many reasons I prefer Roethlisberger over him. I don't think Flacco is a bad QB but the guy doesn't seem to have the ice water in veins and clutchness that many of the greats seem to have.

Agreed. The Ravens should trade for Tebow.
