PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – “Is _________ an elite quarterback?” is an often-asked question that’s difficult to answer. That blank was filled with Eli Manning’s name after last year’s Super Bowl, and is filled by this year’s Super Bowl MVP, Joe Flacco.
The “elite quarterback” question is so hard to answer, because it’s so hard to define. It doesn’t really mean a “top five quarterback,” as there could be more or less than five elite quarterbacks depending on the talent in the league. People like to use post-season success as part of the measuring stick, but it can’t be everything. Dan Marino is proof of that.
