The interwebz has been buzzing since ESPN's Merril Hoge said yesterday that Joe Flacco is now the NFL's best quarterback.
Honestly, if we're talking about right now, I think you could make a legitimate argument. He did just win the Super Bowl, for Christ's sake, and throw 11 TDs with 0 INTs while doing it. We've got to give him a little credit. Flacco might not have the strongest arm, or be the most accurate, or present a mobile threat. But he's a winner, plain and simple.
Anyway, we're getting off topic. Because my beef with Hoge isn't that he's wacko for Flacco, it's that he doesn't think Brees is the bees knees.
That's right. Check out the video. Hoge's other top five quarterbacks behind Flacco are Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger (are you crapping me!?!?), and Matt Ryan. Drew doesn't make the cut but don't worry, Roethlisberger's there.
Drew Brees Isn't a Top Ten Quarterback
