Simms: Flacco Awesome On Ravens, Not Good

Jul 15, 2012 3:32 PM EST

Phil Simms is among those who consider Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco to be a franchise quarterback.

"Joe Flacco has had a lot of success, not some," Simms said.

"I never look at Joe's completion percentage and say he's inaccurate. I look at him as a guy who makes great throws, not good ones, every single game. If someone gets open, he hits them. He moves around well. He's a giant of a man and can throw the football with basically anybody in the NFL. If that's not a franchise quarterback, I don't know what one is. All the experts and the networks can continue to debate Joe because he hasn't won the big one and of course that completion percentage."

Flacco's career completion percentage is actually a respectable 60.8 percent during the regular season. It's the 54.3 percent figure in nine playoff games.
