Let’s ask this question again; Joe Flacco, are you an elite quarterback?
He said yes to that alright.
With a 15 point lead as the Baltimore Ravens dominated the San Francisco 49ers in the first half, 21-6, let’s Flacco this question; Joe Flacco you just won Super Bowl 47, where are you going? He’s going to Disney World, as of now because he is poised to be the championship’s MVP.
Flacco completed 13 out of 20 attempts for 192 yards and three touchdowns.
Flacco connected with wide receiver Anquan Boldin for a 13-yard touchdown on their opening drive. After a 10-play drive early in the second quarter, Flacco hit tight end Dennis Pitta for an uncharged, play action pass for a one-yard touchdown pass.And he was able to connect with his new found deep ball friend, wide receiver Jacoby Jones for a 56-yard touchdown pass, reminiscing the 70-yard bomb they hooked up for in their Divisional Round matchup against the Denver Broncos.
The 49ers has been in this position before as they allowed 22.1 points in the first half this postseason, but only give up 5 points in the second half.
If Flacco and the offense can be successfully aggressive in the second, with the defense playing lights out, the quarterback that people thought that couldn’t (including many Baltimore fans) would.
