Top 20 Quarterbacks: #15 Joe Flacco

While he’s played well in big moments over the last few years and was the MVP of Super Bowl XLVII, Joe Flacco still doesn’t sniff our Top 10.

He led the Eagles from last place in 2012 to an NFC East title in 2013. He was an MVP candidate despite starting only 10 games. So why isn’t Nick Foles higher on this list? Continue reading
