Joe Linta: Ravens were dumb not to sign Flacco last year

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; “I’ve never in my life seen a dumber move. I guess people can say, ‘Well, Joe was dumb, too.’ It could have been (dumb), God forbid, if he got hurt. But $1 million to Steve Bisciotti six years from now? ...

Joe Linta: Ravens were dumb not to sign Flacco last year

“I’ve never in my life seen a dumber move. I guess people can say, ‘Well, Joe was dumb, too.’ It could have been (dumb), God forbid, if he got hurt. But $1 million to Steve Bisciotti six years from now? That’s like 100 bucks for you or me today,” Linta said.

Linta also isn’t sympathetic about the fact that the Ravens will almost certainly have to restructure the deal in three years to avoid a cap number of $28.55 million for Flacco in the 2016 season.

“I’m not apologetic for the fact this is really a three-year deal, there’s no way they can afford $29 million a couple of years from now,” Linta said. “I’m not apologetic. They chose to walk away.”

Re: Joe Linta: Ravens were dumb not to sign Flacco last year

They paid a ton of money to a subpar QB. He has played ok in their scheme but could you see him in NE or GB or with us?
I sure as hell can not

What a waste of money. Of course paying ANYONE (yes Drew too) that type of money is a waste. But this especially

Joe is a great guy. I just question why do you say that.

Re: Joe Linta: Ravens were dumb not to sign Flacco last year

Joe Flacco is elite now so he MUST be paid the big bucks....
Because it was all him that won the super bowl and he'll have to prove it again this year lol

Just because you win a Super Bowl. That means your elite?

Hell no, but have you ever tried to have a conversation about who is elite and not hear those two words?

Heck the media considers Matt Rayn elite...
That's why I hate the term.

Remember, Trent Dilfer wears a SB ring.
Marino is the greatest QB to never wear a ring.
