  1. I think you have to give the QB honorable mention, if not the whole award to Trent Dilfer.

    • I agree Dilfer was a great QB for us and led us to our only Super Bowl win, but it’s hard to call someone a “player of the decade” when he really only started half a season’s worth of games. I think the people of Baltimore will always have fond memories of him and I get a feeling of nostalgia whenever I see him on ESPN, but for this award I don’t think his body of work was quite worthy of going ahead of the other two listed.

  3. While I agree with Rabbieli about Trent Dilfers body of work, if you are using that argument Flacco has only had 2 seasons. His body of work is not that extensive. If both players have such a short body of work the nod has to go to the player with the hardware. I think that Flacco will turn into an excellent player, however I dont think you can give a second year player the award for player of the decade. When the decade started Flacco was 15
