There certainly isn't any QB in the draft likely to accomplish what he can, at least not for a number of years. And, with their defense putting age on and needing an influx of talent, having to draft a QB, or go out will almost certainly knock them out of playoff contention for a number of years. Too many variables that will put the Ravens between a rock and a hard spot should they not either sign or franchise Flacco. Then again, with the franchise for QBs being in the $14 million range, and top QBs making in the $17-20+ million range, using the tag on Flacco might be their easiest and cheapest route, and then go about signing the other players they want to keep to long-term deals. Still, I think Flacco has the upper hand here, and his play just keeps getting better and better, but what I like best, is he has seemed to step it up as both a leader, and as a clutch player. Were it not for a perfectly thrown but dropped pass, the Ravens may have been SB champs last year.
