Wasn't the Bronco's one of the leading defenses in the league while the Ravens sat in the middle of the field this year in defense ranking?
Way to read
, Ravens had key defensive players out all year, while Denver was off playing the raiders and the chiefs twice.
Manning and the Broncos put up 35 on the Ravens, that doesn't make the defense look very good..
Wow an elite QB put up lots of points dispite playing a good defense, unheard of.
I guess The 49's must have a bad defense also bad because Rodgers and Brady put up points against them.
Flacco pretty much made the big play of that game with that last series with a minute left in the 4th quarter not the D.
You mean that lob up into the air to wide open recier, after the defense managed to get the ball back after only losing about 1:30 in time on the clock.
You know what though, he has to face the 49ers defense which will probably be a lot more scarier than facing Baltimore's D.
LOL...WTF??? Did you just suggest that the Texans and Bears don't have good defenses? Are you serious?
No just that they rather have some of Baltimores defensive talent, rather than a QB that is probably no better than the ones that the currently have.
The Ravens defense doesn't make Flacco complete 60% of his passes and throw 3 TDs with 0 INTs.
No he made some good plays on defenses known for giving up big plays. He also threw at least 3 ball straight in to the hands of the defenders with the game on the line and was saved by their inability to hold on or stay in bounds.
Sure, they're not numbers that blow you away. But he didn't make the mistakes that Peyton or Brady did either.
And Peyton and Brady where both up against a much better defense.
He's a solid QB and he makes the plays when he needs to. In today's NFL, that's good enough.
Which is my point, he is not elite, nor do the Ravens need him to be elite to win.
