I think Green was far more accurate on intermediate routes though, and yeah, I definitely think he was as composed. He was a better decisionmaker and ran a far more complicated offense than I think Flacco's capable of running.
They're different, but in the end I think Green was a more productive and versatile QB than Flacco is now.
That is a well thought out post, and you make me re-think some of my position. It is just hard for me to get it out my mind seeing him overthrow balls into the ground when under pressure.
That offense was very complicated, and that is a great point. But Trent had the luxury of the best running attack this team has ever had, and among the very ever.
