    Peter King gets dumber with each breath he takes. Ever listen to the guy? Nothing but rambling, babbling incoherent nonsense. He's a bloated idiot.

    What do you expect out of Peter King? Piercing analysis? Off the top of my head there's about a dozen guys on this board who are distinctly more qualified to talk about football for a living. If nothing else, King is a nice reminder that there's nowhere you can't go if you're willing to kiss enough *** along the way.

    That's because he gets very little access. He's dead to BB after his ridiculous Spygate takes.
    A funny aside, King moved to Boston 3 or so years ago. He lasted a couple of years (if that) before moving back to the NY area. King found out the hard way that what is said about us New Englanders is quite true...... we don't warm up to strangers easily. :D

    Who of the following is Flacco going to replace in the upper echelon of Quarterbacks?

    1. Tom Brady
    2. Aaron Rodgers
    3. Drew Brees
    4. Peyton Manning
    5. Ben Roethlisberger

    Why do I feel the need to add this comment to every Peter King thread?

    This guy is the most worthless hack in the league. He merely jumps on the flavor of the week and writes down what every fan would be thinking if they just started watching football two weeks ago.

    It's just a list, not a ranking. If I had to rank them I'd drop Brees below Manning.

    The media are incredible fickle. I remember just a few short months ago at the start of the season, there was this exact debate as Flaco wanted to be called an elite QB. Fast forward to November when the Ravens were struggling, most then said he was good but could not be considered great. Ane now because they won a couple of games, he is suddenlty Elite again??? They need to make up their minds !!

    The rest


    Sorry, Peter, but Flacco's not up there in that top eschelon, and neither is Eli. Flacco's not next in line either. Hell, he's not even a top 10 QB.

    So essentially, you're hoping for an epic collapse by the Patriots?

    The list of elite QBs is fast becoming as long as the list of teams that make the NHL playoffs.

    Which is to be expected if one removes virtually all barriers to inclusion.

    You mean the Carson Palmer rule? The rule that was put in after the Steelers knocked him out of the playoffs? The rule that was exercised when it was very apparent that Suggs was making a deliberate attempt to hit Brady in his knee and knock him out for the game/season?

    A little more research might do you some good, my friend.

    It's not about smarts, but dodging the bullets and trying to survive and thrive in the ****hole that is Maryland.

    But yeah, Flacco's elite...sure. So is Jay Cutler, Tony Romo, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Sam Bradford. Elite...1337 as I believe the kids say.

    Yeah right. Brady has gotten 5 roughing the passer call in the last THREE years. That's the fourth LEAST in the league. Does that sound like the refs are "looking after" Brady. Gets your fact straight Ray.

    Raven's fans want to excuse every loss on the refs. How quickly you forget the well timed PI and holding calls that fueled the Ravens comeback back in September, not to mention the phantom FG that never was.

    The reality is that there are always going to be calls that help and hurt your team in every game. Some of them are going to suck. DEAL WITH IT. The Pats got bad call after bad call in the Texan game and still managed to smoke them.

    Stop trying to set up your excuses this early in the game. Ray. If you are going to troll, troll intelligently

    the truth, as seen on video tape, always hurts the lying, near braindead haters who come here to spread their peculiar brand of revisionism.

    Players on every team look for, and get, weak calls. The Ravens are no exception.

    Flacco is such a limited QB that it is ridiculous to even consider him in the upper echelon. The guy can only throw to his right. His short and intermediary game is mediocre. He just has a strong arm who can throw jump balls to his receivers.

    I haven't been all that impressed with Caldwell's play calling, but he has done a good job exploiting the few strengths Flacco has and minimizing the weaknesses.

    Seriously, Flacco only completed just under 60% of his passes. He had basically a 2:1 TD to INT ratio. He was sacked 35 times. He fumbled the ball 9 times. Those aren't upper echelon numbers.
