Is Joe Flacco "elite"? Phil Simms thinks he needs to win today to prove it. "There's no doubt. He's going to ...
... have to go to the Super Bowl," Simms said earlier this week. "Not only that, if he didn’t play well and they win the Super Bowl, then it’ll be, ‘Oh, well they overcame Joe Flacco.’ I don’t think I’m overstating it. It’s just the way it is. Players get labeled. That’s the story…When he plays well, no mention. When they lose? Oh, well they let Joe Flacco throw too much. But when Joe Flacco or any other quarterback makes an outstanding throw, to most fans and most people, it’s just another throw. They don’t realize that that throw was made by somebody maybe only five guys in the league can make. So maybe that’s a little unfair, but he’s got to win this week, win in the Super Bowl before he probably ever gets the accolades and the dues that maybe he deserves."
