If you’re the kind of insane person who subjects yourself to sports talk radio for more than a half-hour at a time (and really, what the hell are you doing with your life, man?), then you know the deep love-hate relationship Baltimore has had with its quarterback. Christ, the debate over whether or not Joe Flacco is “elite,” as if that is in any way quantifiable, raged on for weeks. None of this seemed to bother Joe Cool, who balled the fuck out during the Ravens’ historic playoff run and brought a Lombardi Trophy back to Baltimore on Ray Lewis’ last ride, earning a fat contract as a result. We’re hoping for more big things in the 2013 season, even with a gutted receiving corps. In short: Suck it, haters.
