you act like they didn't split this series with Flacco at QB...it's only the kid's 4th year
I said over the next couple years. By the time it's his seventh year, and they haven't gotten to a Super Bowl, nor won a Super Bowl, or if Flacco declines.... They lost the Conference Championship in 08, to the Steelers none the less. Ravens had the number 1 or 2 ranked defense that year if I remember correctly.
I'm not gonna front and act like I know every contract on the Ravens defense. To me, it looks like rebuilding is in the future. If there is another sure fire (and I use that term loosely), in the next few years, I say take him. I think Flacco has a ceiling, and I don't see him breaking, nor do I see him leading his team to a Super Bowl victory... that's just me. I'm sure no one will agree with me, but that's my opinion. (And now that I think about it, I've heard a few people who've agreed with Flacco's "ceiling").
