Look at Brady and Manning's numbers. That deserves 20 mill a year. Flacco isn't a top 10 quarterback.
Top 10 in my book
1. Kaepernick SF
2. Rodgers GB
3. Luck IND
4. E Manning NYG
5. Brees NO
6. Griffin III WAS
7. Wilson SEA
8. Newton CAR
9. Flacco BAL
10. Ryan ATL
No Brady or Peyton as they are 36 and 37 years old. Would you trade Kaepernick for maybe one or two years from those guys? Didn't think so. All of the above are $20 mil / year worthy guys.
lol ALL of these guys are 20 mil guys? You realize this Flacco deal is the most an NFL player has ever been paid, right? So all 10 of these guys should get historic deals?
Right now top 10:
5. Big Ben
Top 10 if youre basing it on the next 5-8 years:
9. Big Ben
Either way, Joe Flacco is not a special player. Hes barely top 10 now, only because of his playoff poise. In the regular season only id drop him a bunch. Guys like Stafford, Dalton, Cutler, Romo, etc are better during the regular season.
In the 6 years during this contract, he will probably never be a top 10 guy, which is why it was a terrible move. Its an emotional, knee-jerk reaction to winning the SB. The Ravens got caught up in the hype of a great postseason from Flacco, and forgot that hes not a star. I have a hard time believing he wouldve turned down an 80 mil. contract. What other team was going to give him more than that? They panicked and screwed up.
Hopefully for BAL they built stipulations that say he must then perform like a top 5 QB overall to gain that full 20 mil a season.
