The Victory Formation:
You read that right. There is no lost context here. ESPN analyst Merril Hoge said just that on Tuesday’s SportsCenter. Baltimore Ravens QB and Super MVP Joe Flacco is the best quarterback in the NFL. I’m still trying to pick myself up off the floor after seeing the video myself. Here it is: At least we can give Hoge credit for being objective, being that he played his entire career with the Steelers. The problem is that rationale he uses. Apparently, Flacco doesn’t have the same weapons on his offense than other top flight QBs. Yeah, okay. For what it is worth, Flacco’s game went to another level when he discovered the awesome talent that is Torrey Smith in his lineup. Also, Ray Rice is probably considered a top-5 running back in the NFL. Look, Flacco had amazing postseason run this year, and proved himself to be able to play at a high-level in the toughest of situations. But one has to look at the overall picture when talking about this, and while Flacco finds himself in the top half of QBs in the NFL, he certainly isn’t the very best. Doctors should take the opportunity to study Hoge’s brain [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had a hell of a game in Super Bowl 47, especially the first half, when he threw three touchdown passes and made his team seem unbeatable. For his work — and because the Ravens’ defense didn’t fully crap the bed and let the 49ers come back and win the game — Flacco was named Super Bowl MVP.
After the game, Flacco milled around...
Joe Flacco finished this postseason with 11 Touchdowns, 0 interceptions, a Super Bowl ring, and a Super Bowl MVP award. Sounds elite to me. So now that the season is over, attention turns to Flacco and the Ravens as they now have to attempt to get a deal done because of Flacco’s looming free [...]
Ravens owner Joe Bisciotti told reporters on Thursday that they offered QB Joe Flacco a ”top-5 contract” last summer, per Albert Breer.
If true, it would make Flacco’s decision to play out the final season of his contract all the more remarkable.
Flacco, 28, will definitely secure a $100 million contract at some point, but it will be interesting to see just how much guaranteed...
By leading the Baltimore Ravens to a Super Bowl championship, Joe Flacco not only did the best possible thing he could do for the organization, but also for his own contract situation. Flacco will become a free agent this offseason, and there is no better leverage in contract negotiations than the Vince Lombardi trophy.
The 28-year-old is in for a massive payday, but how big are...
Momentum is not actually a determining factor in sports. Nor is manifest destiny, at least not in the way Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis describes it with God wanting Baltimore to win and then making that outcome happen, by, I don't know, planting atrocious, goal-line pass plays in 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman's brain for that final decisive series.
Nice work, God...
Last year during the offseason, Baltimore Ravens' quarterback Joe Flacco was making wild statements about how he was an “elite” quarterback and the best in the business.He really sounded like he belonged in a nut house than on the football field.Flacco has been one of those quarterbacks that has seen more downs than ups over his career even though he manages to get the Ravens...
Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens withstood a furious comeback attempt from the 49ers, a 34-minute blackout and the Destiny's Child reunion to win the Super Bowl.
Ravens fans, you may now exhale, let out a sigh of relief and celebrate. Congratulations to coach John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens on their hard-fought victory.
If you’ve swallowed your breath all game long, please resume back to your normal breathing functions. Though I understand the 2nd half of Super Bowl 47 will indefinitely be reminisced as the most exhilarating fifteen...
Joe Flacco mentioned that he is “pretty optimistic” about finalizing a new contract with the Ravens in the next few months.
“I’m pretty optimistic, but who knows,” Flacco said, per Aaron Wilson. “This is a great organization. I don’t anticipate any problem.”
Last offseason, the Ravens reportedly offered Flacco a contract that would have paid him $16...

A power outage at the Super Bowl put the nation's biggest sporting event on hold for more than a half-hour Sunday, interrupting an otherwise electric, back-and-forth game that ended with Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens as NFL champions thanks to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.
