Joe Flacco. Baltimore Raven. Super Bowl XLVII MVP. And the latest NFL Quarterback to benefit from the “Lombardi Effect.” That happens when an average looking quarterback hoists the Lombardi Trophy and goes from Joe Schmoe to Holy Hotness overnight.
I mean, if you look at the picture, you can almost see it happening. At the beginning of the season, I would have said the prettiest thing about Joe Flacco was his spiral. But not anymore. Suddenly…he looks stronger, smarter, handsomer.
And he’s about to be richer. By $100 million dollars. Yes, with everything else he has going for him, Joe Flacco also has timing. He won a world championship for the Ravens. In a contract year. He hit the jackpot…and it’s about to pay out. Flacco is expected to be on the receiving end of a Tom Brady/Peyton Manning payday.
If that doesn’t make him elite…I don’t know what does.
Little Joey Flacco is all grown up.
“Joe Cool” just became “Joe Hot.”
