ESPN’s Ron Jaworski ranked Joe Flacco #9 on his top 30 quarterbacks list—a move that has a lot of fans and critics calling Flacco one of the most overrated players in the league.

The facts can’t be ignored. Joe Flacco has led the Ravens to four straight playoff appearances in as many years he’s been in the league, not to mention two AFC Championship game appearances. In case anyone forgot, Flacco’s losses in those two AFC Championship games were to their arch-rival Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots—two teams who don’t exactly lose easily in the playoffs.

ESPN pointed out that Jaworski ranked Flacco higher than some other premiere quarterbacks, such as rookie sensation Cam Newton, Eagles star Mike Vick, Tony Romo, Matt Ryan, Matt Schaub, and Matthew Stafford. Jaws got this correct, as those six quarterbacks have only combined for one playoff victory in the last four years.

Other than Jay Cutler, Flacco will likely be preceded mostly by quarterbacks who have won MVPs and or Super Bowls.
Jaws got this one right, Jaws has Flacco ranked right about where he deserves to be, and no higher.
