Flacco is hampered by a deep ball offense (Thanks Cam) without an offensive line to support it. You can call it what you want, but our Offensive Line didn't all of a sudden play lights-out in the 4th Quarter, we just switched to throwing more short/medium routes instead of shooting for the moon each time. It's farking AMAZING how that works. Matt Birk is on his last leg, and it's tough for a deep ball passer to make a deep ball pass if his C is in his lap damn near every play.

Flacco is an enigma. Since he's been in the league he's got an insane win percentage, a record setting number of visits to the playoffs, and no SB Ring (or appearance). For his first four seasons, everyone screamed "Flacco sucks, it's his D that carries him". This season when the D sucks, it's "The D Sucks, but the Red Zone D is #1".

Flacco's a baller. Whatever you want to say about him the dude does what it takes to win. The guy is money when his back is to the wall. Is he top 10? No, but he's on the cusp. If he was just 75% as good on the road is he is at home, he'd easily be a top 10 QB.

Harv72b: If Flacco throws into double- or triple-coverage and the ball is batted away or deflected then he choked with the game on the line. If Boldin or Torrey Smith goes up over two defensive backs and makes in improbable catch, Flacco was an idiot for throwing it and got bailed out by his receiver. If he dumps it off to a wide-open receiver who is arguably the best open-field runner on the team and gets the first down, it was a stupid decision. Did I miss any scenarios?

Remember, they were playing the Chargers. If we had a time machine and a way to watch every possible scenario unfold I think 100% of the time the Chargers would blow it. We just happened to be in the universe where a dump off goes for 30 yards instead of the universe where Flacco heaves up a Hail Mary that gets tipped by a DB, caught by a Raven and taken in for a touchdown, or the universe where Flacco decides to pooch punt and the ball bounces off Norv's head (while he is standing on the field trying to get on the Jumbotron) and the ball is returned for a TD by the Ravens.
