08:09 AM ET 01.04 | Joe Flacco has an opportunity to right what to date has been an up-and-down fifth season in Baltimore -- all he has to do is beat the inspiring story that is the Indianapolis Colts. "Joe really needs to play well for them to win," said former NFL quarterback Rich Gannon, a CBS analyst. "They've got a bit of an identity crisis. When you watch Joe and Torrey Smith, their longball hitter, they miss a lot of throws. There are a lot of overthrows. You get the sense they're not on the same page as far as timing. Joe has the ability to get hot. He's big, strong and tough. He's a Top 5 talent in terms of arm strength and has a lot of mobility. Yet something's not right with this team. Something's amiss."

Colts have one more week of feel good left in them...

Some guys need a change of scenery to improve. Hopefully not with the Jets. Rex doesn't have enough arm space to tattoo all his QB's

I'm a big time Ravens fan and has seen Joe show flashes of greatness but I hope they do not sign him for long time unless he shows consistency.

I think the Colts might just win this one. What about an Alex Smith straight up for Flacco trade?

Funny how if Flacco wins a couple of playoff games all this negative crap goes away. deal with it Joey boy you are paid millions to win.

Fact remains he has been awfully limp lately.

Flaccid in fact (as Harry Crack said the other day).

I don't know if it's just me but I don't see nothing mobile about Flacco... kid is a flat out pocket passer...

The Ravens are about to have a bad run of "Luck."

January 4, 2013  10:04 AM ET

Joe Flaccid is the weak link on that team.

January 4, 2013  10:46 AM ET

Good arm, questionable head. Makes too many bad decisions for someone who's been in the league as long as he has. He won't take the next step until he gets past that.

Throw in a draft pick.

Why would the 49ers want Flacco? THey could trade Smith for a good player or a pick that could be used on a good player...

Attention Joe- this just in ; give the ball to Rice. Repeat with great frequency !

Yea! your right making the playoffs 5 years in a row really sucks, and prior to that they were in the playoffs 3 of the last seven years, when they had all those hall of fame quarterbacks!

"Ravens facing identity crisis with Flacco"

Once he talks to Ray-Ray and goes out to commit a murder, he'll have his identity back.

looks like my buddy AG is still grumpy about missing the playoffs this year...

A big win changes everything for Joe's psyche......a loss.....well the critics will have to sharpen the knives they carved up Romo with.

January 4, 2013  01:57 PM ET

I wonder if he still thinks he's elite

January 4, 2013  02:12 PM ET

Say.. let's have the Ravens trade Flacco, and all their 2013, 2014, and 2015 draft picks to the Redskins, for RG III. Or, let's not and just say we did<g.>
