Joe Flacco just had an amazing playoff run which was capped off with a Super Bowl MVP. In case you’re wondering Flacco threw 11 touchdowns and 0 interceptions during this playoff run, which is pretty good we must say. And because of his stellar play and ultimately winning the Super Bowl, Flacco will undoubtedly get paid like he’s an elite quarterback. A fact that should make his campaigning agent quite happy.
But let’s not get it twisted. There are still a number of quarterbacks that we would take before Flacco. But of course someone has gotten swept up in the moment of Flacco’s playoff triump and has decided that Flacco is now the best quarterback in the league. That someone is ESPN NFL analyst Merril Hoge.
If you want to say that Flacco is now an elite quarterback, we wouldn’t have too much of a problem with that. But best quarterback in the league? We think not.
