So I got to work today and one of the Baltimore fans was going on about how bad Flacco was and blah,blah,blah.
I've never really been a Flacco fan and had been telling him since last year that I honestly don't beleive Flacco is the guy. He's not going to take that team to a championship. The only chance they have is while all of the ancient starting defense is still around and that doesn't look like its going to be much longer.
So the QB talk came up... again. I don't know how but the question came up of who would we take out of Flacco or Sanchez? Since they've both been in the league what, 4 years now.....at this point who would you say is the better QB?
I honestly thought Flacco showed signs of being slightly better than Sanchez. They both have had the luxury of coming into to defensive units that could basically carry them when they had bad games....

I think Flacco is probably the better QB overall, but I think Sanchez has shown he can be decent and mistake-free in the playoffs, which Flacco hasn't. And the playoffs is when it matters, so as much as it pains me to say, I'd have to go with Sanchez.
Sanchez has a career QB rating of 72. When Brady has a rating under 100 for a single game, the game thread posters bemoan us letting go of Cassel or how our team is finished, etc.. Just good for some frame of reference.

I think both are below average QBs and neither are good enough to get their team a Super Bowl win without a lot (and I mean a lot) of help. To be fair to both guys, they both have arguably among the worst offensive coordinators in the league. Gun to my head I would select Flacco because he has at least thrown for over 20 TDs in a season (twice).
The only thing that Sanchez really has going for him is he does step up in the clutch. That said, his propensity for playing God-awful football for most of any given game is the reason he needs to step up in a clutch in a lot of situations.
This is like picking between dog poop and cat poop. That being said...
Give me Flacco. Has the much better arm. Sanchez comes across as Chad Pennington with less accuracy, but much better charisma. Still, like Chad, the arm will always be the limitation to better things. I don't watch a ton of Ravens games from start to end, but if their OC doesn't have Flacco running play-action until it goes out of style, he should have his head examined.
