    Yeah, because of injury. That type of opportunity could certainly be out there for Flacco if he waits for it. Like I said, no ones first choice.

    I would agree that if he signs with no one and waits for tragedy and desperation he might get a better payday if that ever happens.

    If the giants don’t want to pay Eli next year they could probably save a lot of money by getting rid of him and starting Flacco. The giants can compete next year if they hit on a couple of draft picks and make a couple of good signings

    Aging veteran? Ryan is the same age, Rodgers, Smith, Rivers, Ben, Eli, Brees, and Brady are all older. They all make over $20M except for Brady. Tannehill makes 19, Bortles and Keenum make 18. Dalton makes 16.5, Taylor makes 15.25 for Gods sakes. You don't think someone will pay Flacco 15?

    Just stop.

    No. I don’t. You are comparing him to better players who have not clearly and substantially declined.
    He is being cut to make room for a guy who can’t throw the football. What does that tell you?

    Do we really though? The situation is what it is at this point. And now Colin hasn’t played football in two years.

    Then you really haven't been paying attention to Flacco's production in recent years. I ain't going to defend Tannehill who is a really mediocre at best QB. But Flacco has been just as bad.

    I would say Tannehill is a solid back up and a below average starter. And that is exactly what Flacco is right now. Tannehill in recent years has had a better completion percentage, yards per attempt average, and TD to INT ratio than Flacco. Flacco may have more yards but that is because he passes so much.

    I'm guessing that Flacco is injured. Why else would Harbawl leave that stiff in when it was clear he was in over his head? Even you would have to agree that Flacco would have been a better choice.

    Because if you have all the ingredients except a top QB before trading for flacco, YOU STILL HAVE ALL THE INGREDIENTS EXCEPT A TOP QB

    Flacco was cleared to okay weeks ago.
    He left Jackson in because Flacco hasn’t played in months and hasn’t played well in years.

    "He's the best quarterback in the history of the Ravens no question. That's not even just cause I'm biased; that's just a fact."

    So you think Flacco couldn't have done better than Jackson?

    Doubt it. Different kind of suck, but suck nonetheless.

    I think you or I might have done a better job than Jackson...until we got hit.

    There's no way that Flacco would have sucked as badly as Jackson. That isn't possible.

    Sure it is. Just a different kind of sucking.
    Like 56 passes and 9 points vs Cleveland this year.
    Or 8/18/28 last year vs jville.

    All credibility with your argument falls apart right there.

    Please show the games where Flacco has completed 3 passes and had zero first downs through 3 quarters.

    I'll wait.

    Games are 4 quarters. I just showed some terrible ones.
    I imagine the 8/18/28 probably fits right in.
