Joe Flacco is a gunslinger. Those who doubted him during the regular season 
now sing a different tune.

It was hard to believe that a quarterback whose jersey was selling for 50 percent
off in Baltimore stores was named the player of the game in the AFC

As the quiet and mellow Flacco led his team to a Super Bowl victory and tied
NFL records, it was hard to believe there were doubters and naysayers at the
start of the 2012 season up to the start of the playoffs.

Synonymous with Baltimore are guys like Johnny Unitas, Cal Ripken and with
the end of his NFL career Ray Lewis is among them. As Joe Flacco completed
passes that would make a Greek god jealous, in the first half of Super Bowl
47, he may have earned his place among them.
