But when I watched Joe Flacco play against Minnesota, its not like he was just sitting back there in a pocket all day.
He had people CONSTANTLY in his face, yet he simply GOT RID of the ball.
If it was one of our quarterbacks, he would have been sacked 10 times.
Quarterbacking in the NFL is no joke. It requires a special skill.
Some quarterbacks feel the pressure and get rid of the ball. Some don't.
The difference leads to all of these half-flawed statistics.
You are talking about one of the best D lines in football, if not the best. We are giving up sacks to sorry ass d lines
And this is the main thing that i have a problem with. I dont care who we have under center. Other teams have bad o-lines, but when they do throw the ball, things happen. My thing with Hill isnt when he has no time to throw the ball, cause thats a given. But what happens when he does have time, and he either overthrows a deep ball, throws behind the receiver, or flat out, continues to go to the checkdown underneath man. No one can lie, like it or not, maybe not every time he throws, but i will say 50% of the time, when HILL DOES, have time to throw, it's always to the underneath man.
I just say how can you blame the O line completely, if and WHEN THEY DO HOLD, and our QB hasn't produced what he should, you still blame them? How does that work exactly?
