IMO, considering the offensive goose egg Matty pitched in last season's playoff, even before this season's meltdowns... vs Flacco's several divisional championships, playoffs every season and his then 6-4 vs 0-3 Instant Death Game performances, last year if not before then, the discussion should have organically shifted to: "should we have traded down, loaded up -or grabbed Long and traded up ahead of the Ravens to snare Flacco?"
Since with Ryan vs Long, Ryan @1 vs Flacco @18 both involve the luxury of hindsight, knowing what we know now about rising to the occasion with his back to the wall, out-dueling Peyton and Brady two weeks running, a Lee Evans screwup on a perfectly thrown endzone pass preventing his team from a repeat SB appearance , at this point we could as easily debate whether we should have not screwed around and grabbed Flacco @#1.
"Yep. Blow it up. This might the worst team I've ever seen constructed in my life.
And then you throw in the terrible preparation and in-game coaching. There is no defense.
But do it right. Fire everyone in the building. No survivors. , JiF Jetnation
