Joe Flacco is 8-4 in the postseason, has just outdueled Brady and PManning, and has won several divisional championships over The Steelers. He's not 1-4 in the biggest games of the season. Instead of talking what might have been with Ryan instead of Long, how about instead shifting the convo to taking Long and then trading up to leapfrog above the Ravens for Flacco? After all its not like he wasn't already on everyone's radar zooming up the draftboard on the basis of the Combine?
Wisdom from a "QB Whisperer::
"No we have our FRANCHISE QB and I want to keep him rather than get 2 guys who may or may not be productive NFL players.
Palmer's situation is different and if I had my choice between Palmer and buttfumble, I'd take buttfumble"
