In doing so, Flacco became just the second quarterback ever to beat both Manning and Brady in the same postseason and he did it in spectacular fashion.
Against Manning, he overcame two back-breaking special teams touchdowns and threw for 331 yards and three touchdowns. Then this weekend against Brady, he goes for 240 yards and three touchdowns. Keep in mind the context here -- he outplayed two of the best quarterbacks to ever play the position, and he did it back-to-back weeks. And he did it on their home fields.
Joe's the man! He has the strongest football throwing arm on the planet and he can put it where he wants. 2006 and 2007, we quit TG an hour early just so we could go in to the Tub and watch in awe as he warmed up throwing every type of pass imaginable. The rainbow pass was my favorite. Gannon was great, EDD is great, but Joe is the greatest talent ever to play for a UD team.
And on another note, Gino must be enjoying this tremendously. First year in the NFL and he's played in playoff games including the Conf Championship and now on to the SB. Enjoy Gino because there are no guarantees you will return. Although, with Joe at QB, the chances are better than normal.
