ESPN Sports Nation: Matt Ryan Vs. Joe Flacco Contract

Is the entire northeast still bitter about the AFC Championship?

As bmoreraven on Reddit points out, folks in New England seem to think that Matt Ryan should be paid more than Joe Flacco, who just signed a six-year, $120.6 million deal — the largest in NFL history.

The Ryan versus Flacco comparisons have been plentiful since the two were drafted in 2008. If there were any doubts about the argument before, Flacco quickly put them to rest during the postseason. He now has eight more postseason wins, one more Super Bowl ring and one more Super Bowl MVP honor.

Update: Apparently they’ve wised up, but it’s still close.
