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.
You make good points on the surface but Colts, Broncs and Pats = NO PASS RUSH and go back and look at all his playoff wins prior to this year and look at who he beat or his D beat ? Chiefs were one of them..
An elite pass rush is coming in 2 weeks and like I said, IF he wins against the niners I will change my mind.
