Baltimore Sun readers-poll picks Steelers Roethlisberger over Ravens Joe Flacco

Justin K. Aller

Contrary to popular belief, Baltimore residents do know what an elite quarterback is. They proved as much in a recent web poll asking who the better quarterback was.

As soon as the Baltimore Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers for their second Super Bowl championship, people began calling Joe Flacco an elite quarterback.

Later, in the off-season, Flacco signed an elite contract to remain with the Ravens, which some took as a forced show of support to the "elite" theory. In a further act of biased enabling, the Baltimore Sun recently ran a readers-poll on their website asking the question, "Who is the better quarterback: the Ravens Flacco, or the Steelers Ben Roethlisberger?

At the time of this CBS Sports report by Josh Katzowitz, Roethlisberger held 95 percent of the votes.

Maybe the folks in Baltimore finally figured out what an elite quarterback was?

Turns out they still don't know, as the results of the poll may or may not have been tampered with by Steelers fans, looking to defend their quarterback's honor in a cowardly biased contest, knowing a Flacco victory would have only been used to perpetuate rumors regarding Flacco's elite status.

Whether the results were scientific or not, the poll did prove one thing. Anything resembling a contest between the Ravens and the Steelers is sure to bring out the best in Pittsburgh fans.
