Re: Flacco deserves something close to max dollars.
Flacco is a mediocre quarterback benefiting from the NFL's one and done playoff format that leads to those occasional years where you have two scrub quarterbacks in Super Bowl. It's one of those Trent Dilfer/Brad Johnson winning the Super Bowl as a fluke years.
Flacco will go back to being nothing next year and so will the Ravens. Fully expect the Broncos/Packers/Patriots/Saints to be back on top next year.
