Flacco isn't elite, but he's having a hell of a nice run in a contract year.
The elite discussion has to be revisited then.
What makes them elite? Stats? the ability to bring teams back in big games?
If the criteria is big inflated numbers, then no, Flacco isn't elite.
However, if it's winning in the playoffs and coming back in those playoffs, then yes, he's an elite QB.
He's a Lee Evans and/or Cundiff kick away from going to the SB in back to back years. He beat Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in 3 straight weeks.
