Honestly he played well, but this is incredibly surprising. I was sure that Ryan, RG3, or even Tony Romo would've taken home these honors. I wonder what put Flacco ahead of the others.

... not that I'm complaining.


They all play in the NFC, Laughing.

Lol, that too. Saw the title of the thread and didn't bother to read the tweet.

In that case, Why no Sanchez? Why no Spiller?

Flacco easily trumped them both. Spiller produced in a losing effort plus his stats weren't as impressive. And Sanchez did well... but besides the additional touchdown, Sanchez was worse in every category. Flacco had a good 30 yards passing on him, 2% higher completions, a higher YPA, and was 5 points higher in QBR.

Plus the Ravens blowout win was by a greater margin, so Sanchez really has no case. I'd put Andre Johnson above Sanchez in terms of this award.

I don't think putting up those numbers, especially against the Jets rush D, in a losing effort should hurt Spiller.

I can agree with AJ, I just forgot to mention him. And I thought I saw on ESPN that sanchez had a higher QBR?


Sanchez had a higher ESPN QBR (97.1 vs 95.1 for Flacco), but Joe had a higher traditional passer rating (128.4 vs 123.4 for Sanchez). Seems that this is primarily driven by Joe's 2 additional throws and corrresponding 2 additional completions as their YPCs are nearly identical. Sanchez also had a pick, which hurts his care relative to Flacco's. Also, the Ravens offense as a whole was churning. Rice had 2 TD's from in close, so it's not like Flacco wasn't a factor in those drives as well.


Why are we debating this, can't we as true Ravens fans be happy for our guy and move on from there. Let Joe have this one, Sanchez is going to fall apart anyway (TEBOW).


I actually agree. I was just clarifying the stats question. I feel like I'm always the resident purple shades guy. I don't know why anyone feels the need to debate it. It's not like a homeristic ravens fan said this. It's a mostly impartial group. Let's just be happy.
