But is Joe Flacco elite?

In the NFL, the legacy a quarterback leaves behind and their rank on the all-time list of greatest QBs is determined by a number of factors. Perhaps more so than passing yards, TDs, or career wins, the number of Super Bowl rings a QB has is one of the most significant measurements of their greatness, fair or not. While some of the greatest QBs of all time, like Dan Marino, Fran Tarkenton, and Jim Kelly, never won a ring, some far inferior gunslingers have been able to pilot very strong teams to victory in the Big Game, showing just how inaccurate a measurement “counting the rings” can be when discussing NFL history.
