Is this just a supersticious thing? Self-proclaim you’re the best or elite in hopes you can become the next Super Bowl champion. Everybody thought Eli Manning was out of his mind when he self-proclaimed himself to be elite. Manning wasn’t elite, but the NY Giants were the best last year. The defense stepped up and became the reason they won the Super Bowl, Justin Tuck especially, who still should of been the Super Bowl MVP.
Joe Flacco whom is a lot like Eli Manning, decided he would inform the world he is the best, not top five, but the BEST. Just like last year with Eli’s outrageous statement, I will say the same thing this year about Flacco. There is not a chance on a cold day in…. well you know the rest.
Here are the facts, neither one of these two quarterbacks are the best or elite. Matter of fact, neither one of these two are in the top five. Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Breese, Peyton Manning, and Ben Roethlisberger are the top five quarterbacks. Both of these quarterbacks just happen to be on teams that are defense strong and have bailed them out.
People say what they want, Eli won two Super Bowls and Flacco has led the Ravens to many winning seasons. I will say how it is and numbers don’t lie, so I will try to set the less intelligent right.
Last time I checked this is a team sport and this is just as true with these two teams as any other. Why do I say that, lets talk numbers. Flacco and Manning are very inaccurate quarterbacks and turn the ball over a lot. As you see:
Joe Flacco 74 INTs/FUMs to just 80 TDs
Eli Manning 179 INTs/FUMs to just 185 TDS
The two qaurterbacks that want to self-proclaim are the quarterbacks that are barely throwing more touchdowns then turnovers.
Then you have the silent ones who let their numbers do all the talking.
Tom Brady 172 INTs/FUMs with 302 TDs
Peyton Manning 235 INTs/FUMs with 399 TDs
Drew Breese 198 INTs/FUMs with 281 TDs
We don’t hear these guys making any false statements, the numbers would back them if they wanted to start making self-proclaiming statements. None the less, they have kept their mouths shut and let their performance speak for itself.
Now, I can be more forgiving to Eli Manning, he did get lucky and was on two Super Bowl winning teams. He did get the fortune of a team bailing him out and making him look acerage two years. Flacco, you have no foundation to what your saying, your team can’t even make the Super Bowl. I don’t know what ever happened to letting your performance speak for itself, oh yea I do, it was a young Randy Moss and T.O. who ruined that. These two quarterbacks need to learn a valueable lesson, self-proclaiming and self-praising will only get you disliked and criticized even more.
Let’s put all the talk to the side and let’s us prepare for the 2021-2013 season. Come out and prove to me and the rest of the experts that you really are tha
