Can’t-do attitude

“Elite” isn’t the issue. And as Joe Flacco taught us in the first two months of 2013, it never really was.

Sure, prior to Flacco’s flabbergasting run through the post-season, the club of Super Bowl-winning winning QBs had an exclusive membership of just six current NFL signal callers. Those players are of course:

Tom Brady (3 Lombardis)

Ben Roethlisberger (2)

Eli Manning (2)

Aaron Rodgers (1)

Drew Brees (1)

Peyton Manning (1)

Correct me if I’m wrong, but –- regardless how you’d rank those half-dozen names amongst each other –- we can agree they’re the NFL’s six best QBs overall. (I know, I know: you aren’t positive I’m right. Think it through, though, and you’ll realize I am. Go ahead … take your time. I’ll wait.)

Shek and Rank honor the classic divisional round playoffs with an equally spellbinding edition of the podcast.  Highlights include Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo (@Brendon310) discussing his tweet about the New England Patriots’ “gimmick” offense, driving to the stadium with Ray Lewis, why Joe Flacco succeeds in January, and the response a gay player would receive from his teammates. NFL personnel guru Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) breaks down another postseason Peyton Manning choke, the emergence of Colin Kaepernick, and who to draft first in 2013. Around The League’s Dan Hanzus (@DanHanzus) talks about where last weekend’s games ranked all time, who was at fault for the Denver Broncos’ loss, the Atlanta Falcons’ near-collapse, and the most annoying people in commercials inspired by Black Tie’s (@TundeSMD) weekly shout out.
