They'll slap the franchise tag on him to stop all the rumors and by the time camp opens he'll sign a long term deal

Yeah. The problem will be if Flacco stinks the place up and the Ravens get blown out.-

Let's hope his deal isn't dependent on how he plays in the Super Bowl. That's some serious pressure. Not only the Super Bowl but you also got millions of dollars riding on it.

Even then I'd assume his job to be safe.

Attempting to replace him is likely to result in a downgrade.

Agreed, Flacco would be hard for the Ratbirds to replace,and he wouldn't be unemployed long.

At the worst he gets at least 16 million for one year. Not like any of us will see that in a lifetime.

His performance in the Super Bowl can only make his next contract go up, not down.

The guy is a good Quarterback and improving each year, he's got the respect of his teammates, coaches and owner, he's on his way to the top, whatever that means!
