    To answer the original question -- it kind of depends on what you mean by "prime" Joe Flacco.

    You essentially averaged his production which isn't what I'd consider Flacco at his best, but if that's what we're going with? No, I don't think that passes. Especially since Flacco's numbers which were "solid" in the late oughts and early 2010s look pretty pedestrian now.

    Believe it or not, that average is pretty indicative of his best and worst year.  He was basically around 3600-3900 yards every year with low 20s TDs and low to mid teens in picks.  He was incredibly consistent.  Usually right around 60-62% completion.

    I’d argue his best year was 2012 which was 60% completion.  3800 yards 22 TDs and 10 picks.  He threw for 4300 yards one year, but was 20 td 15 picks that year.

  2. I’ve been thinking about this quite a bit lately.  Some will say it’s a dumb comparison because Zach is much more mobile, but strictly as a passer I think there are tons of similarities between Wilson and Flacco in his prime.  Huge arm, inconsistent accuracy at times.  Occasional “wtf” decisions. When he gets hot, can look all world.  But overall Flacco was a “good” starting QB for nearly a decade.  Never great though.
     

     Flacco's average 17 game season over his 10 years as Baltimore was 3950 yards 22 TDs and 14 Ints.  He was pretty consistently that type of state line for a decade.

    Is that successful in your mind?

    Seemed like MW wants it on his chest?

    There’s a longer clip out there where this whole sequence starts with White purposely letting a ball hit his chest plate first then catching the ricochet. He’s calling for round 2 and Zach ups the trick shot magic.

  4. One of the bigger “learning” items(imo) from Zach last year that was a big contributor to the fewer turnovers was using his legs to get yards instead of for living throws.  That seems to be continuing and encouraging.

  5. I will say this.  Maury doesn’t need me sticking up for him, but he knows his stuff.  Just because he sees a play differently doesn’t mean he’s a hater or wrong.

    Davis should have caught that, however, the ball gets there late and is behind him. The QB needs to start releasing that when Davis gets to the top of his stem. That's not all on Davis. It is difficult to allocate blame on "drops" if you can't watch the play. 

    I see you already got a million responses so I won’t pile on, but that’s not what I see on this one.
