Phil SimmsCorrespondent IJanuary 23, 2013

Joe Flacco has heard his fair share of criticism since entering the NFL.

With the Baltimore Ravens defense not living up to their stout reputation for much of the season, Flacco had to take his team on his back several times.

Now Baltimore will be playing in Super Bowl XLVII, and Joe Flacco is a major reason why.

After his magnificent postseason, can we finally call Joe Flacco an elite quarterback?

Boomer Esiason and Phil Simms know a thing or two about playing quarterback in the NFL. They sat down with Behind the Mic on Bleacher Report to discuss whether Joe Flacco has earned the title of elite NFL quarterback.
