The guy is the freaking Willie Parker of quarterbacks. Except he's probably a better receiver.


(Yes, I can make virtually anything into an anti-Parker slam!)
So far Flacco has played one entire NFL season (16 games) plus three playoff games, plus three games into his sophomore season. And he wasn't pegged as a starter last year until after week 2 of preseason, so half of last year's training camp was not working with the starters. Even so, he ended up the regular season with 2971 yards with 14 TD's and 12 INT's for a completion percentage of 80.0%, and 437 yards with 1 TD and 3 INT's in the post-season (44%) with a playoff record of 2-1.

By comparison, in Roethlisberger's first season he played in 14 games (13 as a starter, as he was thrust into the starter's role after Batch went down in the preseason and Maddox was injured playing the Ravens) and threw for 2,621 yards with 17 TD's and 11 INT's and a 98.1% completion percentage and a playoff record of 1-1. Pretty comparable first year stats in my eyes, other than his regular season record of 13-0 was substantially better than Flacco's 11-5.

Now, am I saying that Flacco, at this point in time, is as good a quarterback as Roethlisberger is? No. But I believe that Flacco is better than a mere journeyman QB who is simply a game manager. We'll know more come January.

Yes, and I acknowledged that. Flacco is >>>Derek Anderson, but <<<<<< Ben Roethlisberger.

To put last week in perspective, Cleveland defense is SO bad that even Derek Anderson routinely throws TD passes against them in practice.

I dunno...just ask Goodell how low he can go.
