They're putting all their eggs on Flacco being an elite QB. 20 million per year annual value. You know how he played last year? Sub 60% accuracy 3817 yards 22 TDs 11 INT 7.19 YPA Sanchez 2011 season: 3,474 yards 26 TD 18 INT 6.40 YPA Flacco last year was complete garbage. He'd routinely close his eyes and just launch it deep as Boldin jumped over his man or Torrey would have his man beat by 10 yards already. The guy is a fraud. Even in the SB he threw at least 5 passes that should be qualified in the "terrible" category. They ended up being 30+ yard gains, but just as easily could (and should) have been intercepted. The Ravens are done because they've pinned all their hopes on him playing like a QB that he is not capable of playing as.
