Ravens’ Joe Flacco Is Close To Taking Over An NFL Record That No Quarterback Wants
Unlike any other QB in recent history, Joe Flacco has always been the focal point of an argument about whether or not he is an elite QB. This next story definitely doesn’t help his cause.
The Baltimore Ravens QB has a Super Bowl and a Super Bowl MVP under his belt. He also had one of the best playoff showings a quarterback during the 2012 NFL playoffs, becoming only the second quarterback in history to throw 11 touchdowns and no interceptions in a single postseason.
But Flacco is set to enter his 10th season in the league, and if he throws 283 more pass attempts, he will then become the all-time leader in pass attempts among quarterbacks who have never made a Pro Bowl.
Flacco needs just 283 passes to surpass Steve DeBerg for the most pass attempts in NFL history without a Pro Bowl appearance. https://t.co/T2pTChD1EV

The complete list:
That’s right. Flacco, who has a s Super Bowl ring, has less pro-bowl selections than Vince Young, Brian Griese, and Elvis Grbac.
