    Re: Flacco pulls an Eli



    Not really . . . he said that he is "the best QB" . . . . Eli said only that he felt that he was in the same class as other elite QB's like Brady.

      Well, Eli proved himself, Flacco needs to step it up.

        Well it worked for Eli. He said it, then elevated his game to back it up.




        Maybe Flacco is hoping for the same result.

        Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

          We'll see. I don't think anyone can blame him for saying what he did.




          That being said, from what I've seen, Eli's cieling/ceiling? was much higher then Flacco's, imo. I can't envision Flacco making that rediculous throw to Manningham in the SB, or Ben's throw to Holmes in the back of the Endzone in their SB win. But, I haven't watched Flacco enough.

            I mean, I've heard some criticism but does anyone else feel like he is being criticized a lot less for saying he is the best than Eli was for saying he was in Tom Brady's class?

              Absolutely! Sheesh, when Eli said it everyone acted as if he was proclaiming to be a Unitis/Montana clone. Saying you think you're 'elite' as opposed to saying you're 'the best' are complete opposite ends of the spectrum. Flacco should be getting verbally crucified to say he's THE BEST - translation: he's BETTER THAN Brady, Peyton, Rodgers, Brees and YES EVEN ELI. At least Eli had a SB under his belt when he said that. Flacco has squat

              And...on a shallow 12 year old note, am I the only one who thinks Flacco sounds like a cross between flaccid and flatulance? No one? Just me? Okay, then I'm twelve

                Can't say I ever thought of it that way but you can probably bet it'll be in the back of my head now. But yeah. I feel like he said it and then it just disappeared. Don't really understand that one.

                  Of course.




                  Eli was from Ole Miss, plays for a great storied franchise in NY and was the first pick overall, then traded.




                  Flacco was a kid with a big arm from Deleware taken late in the 1st. A lot less expectations. ESPN wont cover it like they covered the "Is Eli Elite?" crap. "Is Flacco the Best?" just doesnt have the same appeal.

                    Plus Eli already broke that wall down it isn't like FLacco is trudging new ground. Plus I bet after Eli proving most of them(analysts) wrong they are probably being careful, especially with the team Flacco has around him they are a contender every year and could make you look stupid one of these years.

                      Vick said the same recently too:

                      Seems like everyone is trying to copy Eli...

                        Flacco is not even the best qb in his division.

                          This is true. Eli got absolutely mauled. Makes you wonder if people think Flacco is that much better then 2010 Eli. Haha. Absolutely a troll attempt.

                            That is the thing about these types of comments..... once made.... one of two things are going to happen... 1. you back it up and look brilliant, or ..... 2. You fall on your sword and the entire football world scoffs at you.

                              The thing is, now he's gotta back it up. Good luck!

                              P.S. I've got a bad at***ude when it comes to Flacco since he knocked me out of my surviror pool last year with a pathetic showing against Jacksonville where he was something like 6 for 31 and 89 yards plus picks.
                              No one remembers who came in second.
