    Eli usually throws those kind of balls with a lot more accuracy, Flacco is just a prayer.

    I think Flacco throws a better ball than Eli, tight spiral with speed.

    But since there is zero chance that you would describe Ei as Elite, you deftly sidestepped the obvious.
    It's simple. If you thought that Eli was elite after his 2007 SB win, you better think that Flacco is also elite. Anything else is a double standard.

    Almost everyone throws a better ball than Eli.

    And Peyton for that matter.

    Oddly enough, I think that's one of the reasons why Eli gets so much flak. Just because his passes don't look pretty, people belittle his skill. The whole perception vs. reality.

    Oh for sure, definitely. It bothered me a ton prior to last year.

    The term elite is thrown around way to much. They are both good QB's.

    If Flacco wins the SB, will it be too early to start talking H.O.F?
