Late Saturday night, after the Baltimore Ravens had bounced their archrival from the 2014 playoffs, John Harbaugh touted Joe Flacco as the NFL’s best quarterback, telling reporters, “We’ll take him any day of the week, twice on Sunday or Saturday if that be the case.”
For obvious reasons, quarterbacks are almost always statistically worse in the playoffs than they are in the regular season. Why? There’s immense pressure. There are no Titans or Bucs or Falcons on the schedule, no three-touchdown, zero-interception, laughing-on-the-sidelines-while-Matt-Flynn-takes-some-fourth-quarter-snaps afternoons.
Since the 2010 season, Joe Flacco has been awesome. Maybe he’s been a tad fortunate, too. He’s one of 14 quarterbacks with multiple playoff appearances in the past five seasons. He’s one of four with a better postseason passer rating than regular season rating during that span. source: http://blog.masslive.com/
Furthermore, the Manning vs. Luck heavyweight battle is coming to Denver this weekend. Manning was the greatest, a champion, until injuries sidelined him, reduced him. A new kid, a protégé of sorts, emerged and took his place in the spotlight, while the old champ battled demons and Father Time. But then, triumphantly, the old champ arose again, and sure enough, here he was, engaged and enraged in battle against the new kid.
The Colts’ current quarterback spent numerous summers at Manning’s summer camp, learning from the gunslinger. Gunn, meanwhile, became Balboa’s protégé. Luck, of course, was also drafted first overall by Indianapolis, as the Colts cut ties with Manning, uncertain about Peyton’s future due to his injuries. Gunn, of course, becomes a sensation.
Andrew Luck completed 31-of-44 passes for 376 yards and a touchdown in the Colts’ 26-10, Wild Card win over the Bengals. With the Bengals lacking any semblance of a pass rush and undermanned on offense, the game wasn’t competitive. Roughly half of Luck’s incompletions were drops. The third-year man out of Stanford simply put on a clinic, continually climbing the pocket to avoid Cincy’s “pressure” while dropping dimes with whatever touch was necessary. source: denverpost.com
