Re: Joe Flacco agrees !

Big mistake Ravens... he isn't worth being the highest paid QB in the league. Yes, yes, he won the Super Bowl... But does he really warrant more money than Payton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, etc? Absolutely not. Without Ed Reed and whatever inspiration Ray Lewis brought, that team is screwed.

Re: Joe Flacco agrees !

This makes as much sense as making Big ben the highest paid QB for winning a super bowl.
Joe Flacco as much as I like the guy didn't throw the team on his back and "will" them to win. He had lots of help.

Good for him but I think this was a big mistake on Raven part

Re: Joe Flacco agrees !

Absolutely ridiculous. By the time the Saints' next franchise QB comes around (if we're fortunate enough to get another) he'll want to be paid about 300 million. 120 million plus, for Flacco? The guy who can barely complete 60 percent of his passes in a league that basically GIVES you completions and hopes to avoid the huge plays?

The whole market value thing is BS, as it is. Now you don't even have to put up comparable numbers to the elite QB's. You just have to be a QB on a winning team, and you automatically get to be the highest paid player.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Joe Flacco agrees !

Whoops! Flacco is okay, but "the highest-paid QB in NFL history" and "Joe Flacco" should never be in the same sentence.

Or the same paragraph.

Or the same book.

Or the same LIBRARY!

Oh. My. Goodness. That is one of the most ridiculous overpayments I've ever seen.
