    I bet Trent Dilfer would have liked to get $20 million a year after one good playoff run....

    Granted, a lot Smith's success can be contributed to Harbaugh and co but no more than Flacco and the tools he has in Baltimore.

    Flacco hasn't proven anything to be, other than a middle of the pack QB.

    Baltimore will likely be making the most costly mistake in their history resigning him to that kind of deal.
    Not to mention it would be Harbaughs product going to Harbaughs brother, If anyone can keep smith rollin it would be John Harbaugh.. Sure Jim wouldnt mind giving a few secrets on how to coach smith to his brother

    I bet Trent Dilfer would have liked to played in an era where the salary cap was $120+ million...just like every other QB in history.

    Smith threw nowhere near as much as the Ravens needed Flacco to. Flacco has thrown 531 and 542 times the past two seasons, versus Smith's projected 387 (had he started all 16 games) and 445 times. Flacco (as well as several other QBs) could have similar success that Smith had if they had an OC that barely asked them to throw and a defense that has been widely considered the #1 defense over the past two seasons that could prevent the offense from having to win with the pass.

    While Smith appears to be much cheaper, everyone knows Flacco isn't getting $20M/season without earning it first. He'll be franchised at least two times unless he takes a lesser deal. The Ravens have at least two more seasons to figure things out.

    Where Joe Flacco has his biggest leverage is his past three seasons in the playoffs AND versus the Steelers. As much as people want to rag on Flacco, he's been a key player on that team, even with Ray Rice and the defense being as good as they are.

    With the rookie compensation in place, it's going to become the norm with the very rich in the NFL. Middle class will shrink.

    "We have been watching and waiting, but I wouldn't say we intend to continue to do that. I think you watch and wait to try and assess a situation and act accordingly. It might involve more waiting. It might involve moving in one direction or another. We've done plenty of watching and waiting. If we can move in a particular direction, we might do that."

    And they will have to dismantle this team anyways. If they use the franchise tag on Joe Flacco they will go into the offseason like $12-13 million over the cap.

    My offensive formula for the modern NFL salary cap era.

    Long-term deals for your franchise QB and offensive line

    Use rookies at running back and wide receiver
