Default Flacco highest paid in history???

I'm sorry but one superbowl win, one that came down to the last drive even, doesn't rate you getting the highest contract in the history of the NFL.

At least Flacco won't have to worry about sequestration.

Lucky for Flacco, of course some of that might be payment in Deer Antler, 8 point buck and $119,999,300.32

I like it, far too much to pay for a better than average QB that should have had his season ended in Denver, if not for a HS like mistake by a DB. In the end, less money to put talent around someone who will need it....which is good for my Broncos!

Definately will be interesting to see if they have the dreaded Super Bowl hangover and how he will handle it if they do. I guess we will have to see. I'm pulling for the hangover of course...

Default Re: Flacco highest paid in history???

$168,908 ain't a bad day rate.
I've never thought much of Flacco, but despite the pressure of a contract year, all the press about whether or not he was an "elite" quarterback, and going against a crazy tough series of teams in the post season, he shredded the competition and carried off the hardware.
Brees, Manning, Brady, Rodgers and Roethlisberger didn't do what he did, and Joe only got 7 million for doing it. He's consistently gotten it done from day one.

Big changes in the Ratbirds organization this year and Joe will have to step up and take a leadership role if Ed Reed goes down the road. If he gets it done this year you really have to move him right up there with the top five, regardless of his zero style.
The thought makes me gag.

Well just saw an interview with him and they asked him how he felt and he said "respected", maybe they could have offered him 10 Million and said "and we really really respect you" and saved themselves a whole bunch of money

Default Re: Flacco highest paid in history???

Ravens played well when they had to and got it done. Flaccid was a big part of that obviously. He was also one dropped pass away from playing in two Super Bowls. Glad he got the money but I think all these guys are overpaid....including the so called elites. A friend of mine played FB for the Steelers for six or so years and can hardly walk now in his mid forties. Bad back and knees are hard to overcome. Wish there was a little more equity for all the players instead of a select few.

Default Re: Flacco highest paid in history???

Personally, I'd have agreed on the 'average' tag and been amused by the paycheck. However, his teammates have been so emphatic about how much he brings - all season long, not just after the SB - that I'm beginning to think that I don't have a good feel for the intangibles. I won't argue with the results. He certainly brought good game when it counted.

For that kind of coin, he could have gotten the 20 piece.
