Not as head coach he doesn't.

How much of a HC Gruden was of that 2002 team? I think the years 2003-2008 tell us some about his abilties being a HC of THIS team.

Make the best our of your strenghts. Grudens strength was to win a SB with a team he hardly did put together, someone else did for him. Raheem won as a quality coach.

So why let those guys run your franchise? Keep Gruden away from from drafting and signing FAs. Let him do his job, the job he excells at. His .500 record after 2002 actually tells you something about how he can get the most out a team, which is his strength. Apparently do not let Raheem run the locker room, he already showed he lost it in the past. Being a good quality coach ain't bad. (although i do not want to make Raheem a good quality coach, just because he won a ring as one)

It was obvious we needed a chance after 2008. Our team ran out of blood. Should the Glazers not have thought about just using Grudens strengths, hiding his weaknesses, i'm with you, the firing of Gruden was a horrible move. Just i think Gruden would not have accepted such demotion.

The Gruden bashing is assinine.

The guy wins a Lombardi, and you crap on him?  awesome.  Not.

The Schiano bashing is asinine and unfair as well.

Trust me, if Schiano ever wins a Lombardi, I will not bash him.   Only a moron would bash a head coach who won a Super Bowl for the Bucs.   But until Schiano does that, he's

 You bash somebody until they win a SB, and then jump on the bandwagon,  really brave of you.

This SB proves average QBs win Super Bowls.  Elite QBs are great to have, but rare.  Also not necessary with a good defense.

Neither Kaepernick nor Flacco played "average" getting their teams to this point. Flacco is about to cement himself in that echelon of QBs with Ben R. and Eli. Not elite, but a pretty good QB.


Hell, brees might not be as accurate as manziel.

So, when Flacco throws balls up for grabs to Boldin and makes easy throws when Jones and Smith burn their CB's by a good 4 or 5 steps, he's considered pretty good, but when Freeman does it, he sucks and V-Jax and Mike Williams get all the credit. Which one is it man? Can't have it both ways.

Still neither one have played elite tonight.  Flacco is throwing jump balls like Freeman and every other average QB.

Cause EVERY throw that Flacco has thrown these playoffs has been a jumpball.... ::)

He is putting the ball in spot where his guys can make plays and has been incredibly consistent. Of course he is a very good QB. Don't worry...admitting Flacco is very good doesn't diminish Freeman...Freeman does that himself with his inaccuracy and poor decision making.

Chase - under thrown, thrown into coverage - jump balls - not altogether different than the issues we face in Tampa.  Did you happen to catch the Ravens eval of Kap - he doesn't read the D - he simply throws to the assigned target... odd to hear from others

You are 100% correct, and that is why average QBs win Super Bowls when they have good teams around them....Joe Flacco, Brad Johnson, Eli Manning, Trent Dilfer, Ben Rothlisberger....etc....

K....but all I said about Kap is that he has not played just average during this run. Never said that he read defenses better than Freeman.

Of course not every throw has not been a jumpball, but a good amount of his passes (especially TD's) during these playoffs have been a jump ball to Boldin or a throw where Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones burned his guy by a good 4 or 5 steps.

The TD pass to Jacoby Jones was an awful pass. If Jones didn't have him beat by as much as he did, it would have been picked. Very under thrown. He's done it multiple other times during these playoffs. In the Broncos game, he overthrew a wide open Torrey Smith twice, which should have been 2 more TD's for him.

I know you don't want to admit it, but Flacco is ALOT like Freeman. Inconsistent and will never be elite, but if you put a good team around him, you can win games.
