The lad has made a massive step up this season. He's going to get a big contract and he (insofar as anyone deserves the sort of money these boys make it) he deserves it.
I think there was almost an exact moment to me he stepped over from "good" to "elite".
I was listening to the UK commentary of the Bronco's game and towards the end of normal time the commentators were saying in a mocking, jokey way "Well Joe.. you keep saying why doesn't anyone think you're elite. If you bring your team back now people will believe it".... obviously thinking the game was about to be over... and then he makes that huge throw.
And I know a lot of people concentrate that the defender made a mistake, and he did... but the reason he did was he didnt think that Flacco could throw the ball over him from the distance he was, and not just the distance but how flat the pass was. To me that was nothing like a "hail mary"... it was just an astonishing play that no other QB in the league makes even 1/100, and he absolutely meant it.
It doesnt suddenly make him better than Rodgers or Brees maybe, but he is in their class now.
