    Fair enough. Basically I can sum up my thoughts by saying that I don't think Flacco made a bad play all night. Boldin had a drop in the redzone. That's nitpicking, but it did happen. :lol:

    He's worthy of the MVP but I think Boldin bailed him out on several 3rd downs despite bad throws, and that won the game. I still don't think he's an elite QB, he's too inconsistent. When he's hot it's impressive, but when he's not it gets ugly. Maybe he turned the corner this year in the playoffs, doubt it though.

    I'm interested in seeing what happens to the Ravens if they write a big check. It took a tremendous amount of talent and money surrounding Flacco to win a championship. They were $600k under the cap at the start of the season. Can he be productive enough with a less than stellar receiving core and defense?

    I don't remember a Super Bowl in which the quarterback play on both sides was any better. Both QBs made astonishing throws. I can't criticize the choice of Flacco as MVP at all -- and I expect Kaepernick to win one of those awards before he's done.

    Watching Flacco make pin point pass after pass was a lessen in just how good NFL QBs throw the ball versus college QBs. Very impressive!

    Buckeneye With Rumple Minz, anything is possible.

    I'm hoping the Ratbirds give him a huge contract extension
    Then he resorts back to his mid-season self, permanently.

    I'm not sure whether you file this under "cheater" or just "all-around douche." Probably both. But certainly it should be filed under "not surprising at all." What a horrible representative for the NFL. :shake:

    Anquan Boldin deserves half of any contract Flacco gets... I could be an NFL QB with Boldin... dang he impresses me

    Buckeneye With Rumple Minz, anything is possible.

    Like I said, I hope he gets the top QB contract in the NFL.
    That way the Ravens are further handcuffed with the salary cap
    And then once Boldin is gone, Ratbird fans can again realize what a
    Mediocre QB Joe cool really is.

    Yeah, that would've been funny--hilarious even--if he or one of his teammates blatantly violated the rules of the biggest game of the year and came off the sideline to cheap shot (and potentially hurt) an opponent. :roll2:

    It would be even funnier when Ginn is tackled and the official still awards the td.

    That almost exact situation happened in a Sugar Bowl years ago. Maybe in the 60s but one of the players involved was named Dickie Moegle (spelling might not be correct) but I think he was the one that came off of the side lines and tackled a guy from the opposing team that was running a punt return or kickoff return back for a TD.

    Hoping the Browns throw the bank at him and push Baltimore into salary cap hell.
