I think joe flacco is good but Matt ryan is way better Matt Ryan deserves the rookie of the year because matt ryan's defence is not so great joe flacco got a good defence to help him. matt ryan is the better player. Matt ryan is like peyton manning joe flacco reminds me of Big ben.

thats not true
flacco is better
his team is worst than ryans
and he can surprise with some rushing TD or a CATCHING TD
he is more complete than ryan

Ryan has a better QB Rating, more yards per game, a better TD to INT ratio and a higher completion %. Flacco's Ravens have a far better defense than Ryan's Falcons. The Raven's D has been responsible for a majority of their wins, whereas Ryan has actually led his team to wins. No comparison, Ryan has had a significantly better year and deserves the award. I like Flacco and I'll root for the Ravens in the remote event that they meet the Falcons in the SB, but Ryan is clearly better this season IMHO.

The statement about the Defense is not true (for once). In previous years we would pray for the Defense to score and alot of the time they would. However this year we've won the majority of our games because the offense put up points and didn't give the ball away (like they normally would in another season). In fact against the Titans and the first game against Pittsburgh...the offense did it's job and the D could get a stop.

Wacko 4 Flacco. Flacco and the Ravens are rarely recognized for their accomplishments so it really didn't surprise me to hear that neither Flacco nor Harbaugh were recognized as best rookie player or rookie coach. All I can say at this point is, which Rookie Flacco or Ryan won the first round of the playoffs? Which Rookie will be playing this weekend and which rookie will be home watching on his tv?

I'm waiting for the trend to continue and Ed Reed to not get Defensive MVP.
