The slights against Miami and the Super Bowl Champion Giants are just bitter envy coming from a blind Jets fan.
I am afraid your take on Flacco seems correct. The potenital to be an elite QB is there for Flacco, but for some reason he can't seem to make that hurdle on a consistent basis. We are winning ugly, but will get crushed by NE, or Houston come crunch time.
Our D is weak but we are making some plays when it counts. But without Lewis and Webb it's an illusion of strength.
NE is back to paper-tiger status until further notice. They can fatten up the point differential at any time as we saw againt the Rams, which always looks good at a glance in the standings, and there are some bad offenses that can't take advantage of the Patriots' D, but come playoff time, I think they can probably lose to anyone, including the Ravens. Put it this way...I won't be surprised if they lose to anyone who makes the AFC playoffs. It's crucial that they find a way to nab the #2 seed...they need as short a path and as much help as possible come playoff time. That loss against the Ravens really hurts NE from a tie-breaker standpoint...if NE finishes as a #3 or #4, no way they get to the Super Bowl...no way their D holds up.
The key thing about Flacco is that you can win with him, provided enough other pieces are in place for him to succeed. The elite QB class doesn't always take home the prize, as we've seen many many times.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!
Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
