Ummm...didn't we already know this? Or is this a link to an admin's shiatty blog?

They're all NFL quarterbacks who have never been in my kitchen.

Yesssssss

Look, I'm a Ravens' fan and a Flacco supporter, but he didn't exactly have a lights out game last night, and the two picks Brady threw weren't really his fault. One was tipped and one was a junk pass in garbage time.

He definitely is the reason for the win, and I'm glad to have him behind center, but let's not anoint him King of Football for having better games than two QBs who are obviously on the downward slopes of their careers.

Did you see 5+ threads when Manning lost? Or any other team?It's like the end of Return of the Jedi. The Universe only parties when the Empire falls. And you only see this type of reaction to when the Pats lose.

We had a moment where 3 of the last 5 threads were Manti Te'o threads last week. There are only 2 games to talk about and one of them was far more surprising than the other.

And the Broncos weren't in the AFC Championship game when they lost.

And how many Tebow threads where there every time he farted last year?

And New England has the only coach who wears ripped sleeveless hoodies everywhere.

So if the Ravens beat San Francisco, they would have won games against two definite Hall of Fame QB's (Manning, Brady) and two possible Hall of Famers (Luck, Kaepernick). And they would have won games against a number 1 seed, and two number 2 seeds. Not too shabby.

While elite quarterbacks such as Peyton Manning and Matt Ryan have struggled to win in the playoffs,

I stopped reading there.

Submeister, if you are going to submit a "Flacco was better than Brady yet again" article, then please stick to stuff from NESN. You can positively soak in the pain of the writers as they typed out the article, but other than schadenfreude, they also don't say stupid shiat like "Matt Ryan is elite".
They also seemed to miss that there were two major factors to Baltimore's resurgence.
1) They got rid of Cam Cameron who, while good at designing plays, never implements anything that could possibly be dangerous into his schemes once the Ravens had a lead. This is also known as the John Fox offensive philosophy

2) The defense got most of the starters back. Sure there's still no Lardarius Webb, but having Ray, Suggs, Ngata and Reed on the field at the same time certainly helps more than second and third stringers out on the field.

It's not biatching, it's gloating. Makes me wonder if anybody has any idea about anything since nobody on the internet seems to be able to properly gauge anybody else's emotions.

A little early to even be discussing them as possible Hall of Famers don't ya think. Mr. Kaep has not even played a full season yet.

Kaep will flame out next year, and I think the Ravens will beat him.  They've got time to properly study him, and the last two games help a lot.  He ran against GB and passed against ATL.  The Ravens have two weeks to see how he beat each of them, and everyone else will have the offseason.  And whoever picks up Smith is going to be very happy next year.

It's completely possible for Flacco to have beaten Flacco in the past three weeks, but I would hope his wife takes care of that from time to time.

In terms of time left in the league absolutely. Brady has been in for 13 and Peyton has 15. Montana went for 16 seasons so you can't expect much more than a handful of years left in either of them. And Manning is one good hit away from being sidelined for good. Complete respect for the guys, but they are on their way out.

The devil you say. Kaepernick is on his way to a Hall of Fame career.

Seems Smith and Kaepernick have succeeded largely because the rest of the team is elite. Smith was disgusting to watch before Harbaugh came in and their offensive line became great.

Oh noe! People on the internet don't like Patriots and their fans. At this point, I doubt there is anything I could say or do to make the internet feel any less butthurt about the Patriots success in the past decade. Much like what the Cowboys had durring the 90's dynasty. And that's the point.

No other team in the NFL generates the level of hate the Pats do, because no other team in the NFL is as successful as the Pats have been. So we didn't win this year. We'll be back next year. Will your team?

That should have said "as successful as the Pats have been lately." Obviously, there are other dynasties, much like the Cowboys or Green Bay or the Steelers, that have generated similar hate. But, over time it dissapates. Once the Pats fade(probably after Brady retires), a new team will rise up, and be the new bad guys.

Yet still performing as the two best in the league over the course of the regular season, so I'd say Flacco deserves some credit for out-performing both of them in back-to-back weeks.

Thanks for looking that up. That's not unimpressive either. I'd say Flacco handled more of his offense than Sanchez, but I'm not gonna pretend he's suddenly ELITE.
