We have a shot fired from Baltimore to New York, and it’s sure to stir up some controversy.  Chris Canty spent four seasons as a defensive tackle for the New York Giants. Canty has been with the Baltimore Ravens two months, and he’s seen enough to give his opinion that Joe Flacco is a better quarterback than Eli Manning according to Pro Football Talk. He won a Super Bowl and he’s one of the best deep-ball passers in the NFL,” Canty said during an in-studio Friday visit to Pro Football Talk on NBCSN.  “Take a look at the tape.” Canty said that Eli is “good in clutch situations when you’ve got to have that fourth-quarter drive,” but he believes in Flacco more. “He throws a beautiful deep ball, he throws it only where the receivers can get their hands on it,” Canty said.  “You’re talking about in the vertical passing game and they’ve got some vertical pass threats.  They got Torry Smith.  They’ve got [Dennis] Pitta.  They’ve got [Ed] Dickson.  They’ve got some good weapons for him to use down the field.”   Breaking sports news video.
