    Flacco Stakes Claim as Top AFC North QB

    You gotta admit, Fucco has been nothing but amazing in the clutch. His accuracy and "touch" is among the tops among all NFL QBs. I expect this post make rankle the rank and file SA reader, though that is not my intention.And I'm not saying that I'd rather have Joltin' Joe than Big Ben. I'm just saying that the dude has ice water in his veins and mad skills. One good Superbowl showing will have people affirming his self-proclaimed "elite" status.

    He has been much much better then Ben in the clutch the last few seasons and especially in the playoffs. Say what you want about the Ravens who I think are very very lucky, but their receivers such as Boldin,Smith,and Jones come up huge in the clutch and make plays for Flacco unlike the young money crew who drops balls and dont make plays. The Ravens as much as it kills me to say have shown a ton more heart and guts then the Steelers last year and especially this season and that is why they are one game away from playing in the Super Bowl...

    The thing that sucks the most is that both teams, Steelers and Ratbirds, entered the season with question marks on the offensive line, secondary, and linebacker. Both had strengths at QB, WR, and RB. The Steelers went in the opposite direction and could not close out games. They lost their edge last year and never regained it this year.

    I'm not ready to say that Flaccid is a better overall QB than Ben, there's no way just yet but he has stepped up his game in the clutch these last two seasons. It's up to Ben to regain that edge.

    It kills me to see other WR's make plays to the ball and make catches. The only guy on the Steelers who does that is Miller. If the ball is not thrown perfectly to Brown or Wallace, even Sanders, they won't make a catch. It is maddening. I am soooo tired of our stable of 5' 11" 190 lb receivers. They need some size.

    Lets make no mistake with Wallace and AB, IMO they aren't the sharpest tools in the shed, they've got the talent/skills. What they lack are smarts/willpower/heart. I do think AB has the willpower/heart his biggest problem is the smarts. Just watch the videos on the Steelers website neither of these guys can make a complete sentence. I like the potential of Wallace/Brown/Sanders/Cothery. Sanders is one of my favorite players on the team and I think he can become a nice receiver for this team. IMHO if we could have kept Hines one more yr, I think it would have at least benefited AB and Sanders. Looks to me, we need a coach that can teach the mental part of the game and not just the physical!
