It's been a good past few months for Joe Flacco -- he won a Super Bowl, silenced legions of detractors, and signed a humongous contract. Now, he'll be portraying NFL legend Johnny Unitas for part of a movie about Unitas' life. Not everyone is happy with that casting choice, however -- Unitas' oldest son called Flacco a ''goofball'' and said the movie (which is being co-produced by Unitas' son from his second marriage) should have gone with Peyton Manning. We're not sure about Flacco's acting ability, but we're positive that it's better when the actor portraying an athlete possesses at least a modicum of athletic ability.

Joe Flacco made a case for a new contract with his postseason performance, culminating in a Super Bowl win and MVP honors. Now the Ravens decide how much money they should pay their quarterback. Is he worth as much as Tom Brady, Drew Brees and the Manning brothers? Will the Ravens be able to pay Flacco elite QB money and maintain a championship-level roster under the salary cap?
