The Raven’s playoff run this season can be summed up in one word: magical. And a lot of that has to do with just one person, QB Joe Flacco.
Throughout his entire professional career, experts and analysts have criticized Flacco as “average” and “not good enough.” Flacco, however, has always considered himself elite. And why shouldn’t he? He has led his team to the playoffs and has won at least one game in the playoffs each of his first five seasons. That’s a NFL record. He’s led his team to the AFC Championship three times, and now to the Super Bowl. He has also beat Peyton Manning and Tom Brady on the road.
But looking past all that, Ravens fans are looking towards the future; what is Flacco going to do on Sunday night? If he keeps his current streak going, an efficiency rating never dropping below 102.2, with eight TDs without an interception, he will be your Super Bowl MVP.
If he brings that Joe to the Super Bowl stage, with his powerfully inspired defense, the Ravens will defeat the 49ers. He will not only get a ring at just 28 years old, he will also be elite, a title he has been looking for since his rookie season.
