Canty prefers Flacco to Eli

New York Giants v Dallas Cowboys Getty Images

Maybe he’s just sucking up to his new quarterback.  Or maybe he genuinely believes it.

Either way, new Ravens defensive lineman Chris Canty would take quarterback Joe Flacco over Eli Manning.

“He won a Super Bowl and he’s one of the best deep-ball passers in the NFL,” Canty said during an in-studio Friday visit to Pro Football Talk on NBCSN.  “Take a look at the tape.”

While Canty credits Eli for being “good in clutch situations when you’ve got to have that fourth-quarter drive,” Canty believes more in Flacco.

“He throws a beautiful deep ball, he throws it only where the receivers can get their hands on it,” Canty said.  “You’re talking about in the vertical passing game and they’ve got some vertical pass threats.  They got Torry Smith.  They’ve got [Dennis] Pitta.  They’ve got [Ed] Dickson.  They’ve got some good weapons for him to use down the field.”

It also was fitting that, with Canty choosing a current teammate over a former teammate as the better quarterback, Canty also picked another former teammate as his favorite quarterback to sack.  “I’m on Tony Romo more than the Dallas media,” Canty said.

For more of Canty’s foray into the national media, check out his full chat with Erik Kuselias below.

    Cheerleader, dumb, liar. Take your pick.

  2. Mr. Wright 212 says: May 25, 2013 1:16 PM

    Still bitter he got cut, huh?

  3. jhein23 says: May 25, 2013 1:19 PM

    I totally agree and not a fan of either team. Eli has been blessed with a great OLine – sacked fewer than almost anyone over the past 5 years. Great receivers. Good solid running game most of the years. And yet half of his games he looks lost. And the first SB win he totally lucked out with that David Tyree catch which was more the WR than QB.

    I wouldn’t put Eli in the top 10 QBs. I don’t believe in the SB wins vaulting you over others.

  4. surfinbird1 says: May 25, 2013 1:22 PM

    Yeah, now convince me the moon is made of cheese.

  5. Mr. Wright 212 says: May 25, 2013 1:22 PM

    Offensive line is not great.

    Sounds like a Pats fan with that “lucked out” line.

  6. scoobies05 says: May 25, 2013 1:23 PM

    he also said he would never ever want to play with those losers in pittsburgh. pretty smart guy

  7. deathonwings410 says: May 25, 2013 1:25 PM

    Both are underrated. I’ll leave it at that.

  8. walker615 says: May 25, 2013 1:26 PM

    I wasn’t going to comment on this obviously ridiculous statement by Canty til I saw jhein’s comment… Do you understand the irony of what you just said? “I don’t believe in the SB wins vaulting you over others”??

    The Super Bowl win by flacco is the ONLY reason wer even having this conversation. He’s been pedestrian at best in the regular season throughout his career. Eli, on the other hand, has had a couple of pretty staggering seasons statistically, in addition to the clutch playoff moments.

    _______________________

    So it’s safe to assume Canty failed first grade math? What other conclusion can one come up with when he doesn’t know that 2 is more than 1.

  10. kgun80 says: May 25, 2013 1:32 PM

    They both average around 60% completion rate.. They are both very good QBs. And they both have had a good running game to back them up as well as a very good D to bail them out. Flacco doesn’t take as many chances and is definitely better at limiting turnovers, but doesn’t throw as many TDs. It’s actually pretty close. They both are pretty accurate deep but I definitely feel Eli is better throwing quick and is definitely better on the intermediate throws. I don’t know at this point it actually may be a toss up and the best way to judge them is on titles..and that goes to Eli, but Flacco still has time to catch him.

  11. bigbluewreckincrew says: May 25, 2013 1:34 PM

    Jhein- take your tight cowboy jersey off, it’s impacting your brain function. Eli blessed with a great o-line? What are you smoking? His line hasn’t been the same since 2007. Playing your best when it counts the most is what separates great QBs from the rest. Montana’s regular season stats do not come near some others, it’s what he did in the post season that elevates him the the GOAT. Romo has great regular season stats and can’t do squat when it counts. Don’t let the haterade cloud your judgement. As for Canty, suck it. Eli has 2 rings, and if he could’ve stayed healthy for a full season then he’d have credibility.

  12. mswravens says: May 25, 2013 1:46 PM

    5 years in the league. More wins than any other QB since entering the league. 5 playoff appearances. Tied for most playoff road wins in NFL history. 3 AFC Championship games. 1 SB win (should have been 2 SB appearances if Lee Evans squeezes the ball). 1 SB MVP. Ties Joe Montana for greatest post-season by a QB in NFL history.

    Yeah, there’s no reason why anyone would prefer Flacco over Eli.

    You meaningless statistic obsessed fantasy football losers who have helped diminish the game need to get a clue!

  13. Joemontanaflacco says: May 25, 2013 1:51 PM

    Flacco is the SB MVP. In the post season, he threw 11 TDs and 0 interceptions. He also put up those numbers in the midst of tremendous financial pressure (rather than accept the Ravens’ offer, he opted to dramatically increase his worth by leading a severely injured team to a world championship). Now, the angry, bitter, jealous haters don’t want to hear any of that. Their broken down scandalized QB was never SB MVP, was he? Thank you.

  14. navyeoddavee9 says: May 25, 2013 1:56 PM

    joemontanaflaccid: once upon a time, a player was a SB MVP on the losing team. So yeah I’ll take 2 SB’s over 1

  15. mattsydney47 says: May 25, 2013 2:00 PM

    I completely think that Flacco is better than Manning, but the way that Canty explains it makes no sense. “He won a Super Bowl.” Okay, but Eli Manning has won two Super Bowls. “He’s one of the best deep-ball passers in the NFL.” Isn’t Eli Manning known for his deep ball?

  16. jhein23 says: May 25, 2013 2:02 PM

    I’m not a Cowboys fan or a Patriots fan or a fan of any team in these 2 QBs divisions.

    I would take Eli Mannings Offensive Line any day of the week over Aaron Rodgers, Tony Romo, Matthew Stafford, Ben Roethlisberger and they are all better or equal to Eli.

  17. jhein23 says: May 25, 2013 2:03 PM

    Half of last season Eli looked like total garbage. And he has the deer in the headlights look in many of these games. I don’t know how anyone can dispute that.

  18. bkeating51 says: May 25, 2013 2:05 PM

    Canty really dumb burning his bridges. If, as with many free agents, he doesn’t work out in Baltimore, has he noticed how many free agents the Giants take back. Most recently Aaron Ross.

  19. Mr. Wright 212 says: May 25, 2013 2:06 PM

    And the run game wasn’t great the past 2-3 years EITHER. What is with these people repeating what they heard people saying in 2007 or something?

    And he’s still not better, or even as good as, Eli. Which is the point here.

    Not a statistic or fantasy football mention made.

  21. toybkshr says: May 25, 2013 2:11 PM

    DUH! What else is he gonna say? The QB of my new team isn’t as good as the QB on my former team? Really a non-story

  22. zaggs says: May 25, 2013 2:12 PM

    Here is the thing. When Flacco wins another Super Bowl with a completely different set of receivers (not to mention almost new team), then we can compare the two.

  23. kd75 says: May 25, 2013 2:21 PM

    “He won a Super Bowl and he’s one of the best deep-ball passers in the NFL,” Canty said

    Which one? Oh, I guess the one who’s one A Super Bowl instead of the one who’s won TWO Super Bowls.

    If Canty don’t think Eli can’t wing it deep with the best of them, I don’t know what he was watching on the sideline for the past 4 years.

    Eli is 2x superbowl mvp and the last one was with a injury plagued team so whats ur point?

  25. scoobies05 says: May 25, 2013 2:29 PM

    in an article about a raven player talking about a giant player and a raven player, isnt it funny that a steeler troll was the first one to post? their jealousy is funny

  26. renaldorigglesworth says: May 25, 2013 2:42 PM

    Is it actually possible we went 24 comments without a mention of RGIII?!?

  27. Mr. Wright 212 says: May 25, 2013 3:03 PM

    And I don’t have a single problem with Ravens fans in general. So that ought to tell you something about the first post. Ravens fans *shouldn’t* have any problem with Giants fans, either.

  28. mhohmann says: May 25, 2013 3:11 PM

    Odds of RGIII playing more that 10 games???

  29. t3dstrik3r says: May 25, 2013 3:13 PM

    Like Canty said – just watch the tape. Just watch the two guys play. It’s obvious that Flacco is better. NYG homers are the worst.

  30. SAV says: May 25, 2013 3:32 PM

    Simple.

    Flacco last name is not Manning.

    Flacco has never had stud WRs.
    Flacco has never had a pro bowl WR.
    Flacco has never had major interception problems.
    Flacco has made it to the playoffs every year.
    Flacco had the greatest postseason in NFL History, taking out Peyton, Eli (to make it to the playoffs), and Tom Brady.
    Flacco has a bigger arm, stronger body language, and communication skills.
    Flacco has smaller ego. (Did not force a trade to a better team.)
    Flacco has played in a better division for his career, add up playoff appearances of Ravens, Steelers, and Bengals and it destroys the NFC Weak. Sorry East.

    Flacco us just getting started and Eli’s replacement has already been assigned. Ryan Nassib.

    Bold Prediction-Flacco wins at least 3 more Superbowls, starting this year.

    Credit the whole team around him but Flacco will be instigating critics eternity as he runs rampant through the NFL for years to come. Beware the Ravens are just getting started CAW!

  31. Nofoolnodrool says: May 25, 2013 3:51 PM

    What would you expect him to say, ” I hate Joe Flacco”? Only a Raven fan would believe that ..
    Scoobie you are such a hypocrite always complaining about others saying hurtful mean things about your dear ravens and you make a smart ass remark about Canty not wanting to play for the Steelers. Can’t have both ways …Raven rules only work within the city limits of Baltimore.

  32. arpy911 says: May 25, 2013 3:58 PM

    4th quarter, 2 minutes left, Super Bowl, down 4 points. Who would you want taking the snaps for your team? Is there even a question?

  33. scoobies05 says: May 25, 2013 3:59 PM

    aww nofool. whats the matter. dont you like pointless insults and meaningles insults. you and your steeler brethren postin on the ravens mt rushmore thread helped me see the light. when i see steeler fans being the first to post negatively on raven threads i figure, they have 6 rings…they must be right. hypocrisy…just doing what steeler fans do

  34. scoobies05 says: May 25, 2013 4:01 PM

    mr wright….that post was not meant to knock eli or the giants. more of a response to the steeler fans who cant mind their own business

  38. goldrush36 says: May 25, 2013 4:31 PM

    Flacco has never had stud receivers? Put the pipe down son. Boldin and Smith certainly aren’t scrubs. Since im not a fan of either I will use my best comparative measure. Games my team played against them.. Eli throwing a laser to Manningham which was ultimately the game winner after he had been on the turf at least 15 times.. and other pinpoimt throws throughout, or Flacco throwing a moon ball that Jones had to come 10 yds back to and tons of other jump balls after his line provided him ample time to pass by blatantly holding. Yeah my science for this evaluation is rough but tape don’t lie.. Eli>Flucco. Its hard for me to say that because I truly hate the Giants but its fact

  39. goldrush36 says: May 25, 2013 4:37 PM

    Smaller ego is funny too. The guy that turns his nose up at a huge deal and demands to be the highest paid qb ever even if it only lasted a few weeks… LOL even though most analysts STILL say he is a 2nd tier to middle of the road QB. Many of those analysts have been pretty spot on when it comes to the best guys in the game too.

  40. ravenunitas says: May 25, 2013 5:02 PM

    Flacco better than Eli…not even close.
    Goldrush36 still has his feelings hurt over Superbowl loss….priceless.

  41. truths4all says: May 25, 2013 5:09 PM

    Who out there is actually fooled into believing this suck-up nonsense? Of course he has to suck-up to and stick up for his current teammates. Otherwise, he might get cut again. And what will he do when his former teammates ALL assert their teams are better since they cut Canty. This guy is just shucking anything out there in order to keep his head above water.

  42. themage78 says: May 25, 2013 5:11 PM

    How soon we forget. 4th and 29, if Rice didn’t make it then the Ravens be sitting at home. Also Flacco has a top 5 D every year he has been in the league. Give that defense to Eli and we would be talking dynasty right about now. Flacco is going to choke next season. No Boldin to cover his ass anymore.

  43. pixelito says: May 25, 2013 5:31 PM

    Didn’t Ravens fans wanted to dump Flacco last October?

  44. TheWizard says: May 25, 2013 5:44 PM

    I think the main point is that this jerk should have had the class to come up with a better answer.

    Comparing QB’s is great for guys on a message board. The guy actually playing with both of them should have a higher standard.

  45. censoredagain says: May 25, 2013 5:54 PM

    Hey Chris?

    Try not to speak from now on, because you’ll only succeed in making yourself out to be more of an idiot. Even your teammates are probably secretly laughing at this one

  46. egal99 says: May 25, 2013 6:29 PM

    Jealousy over Eli Manning’s success and his ascent to elite status and his 2SBMVP’s in five years can produce the most staggering stupidity. Some of these comments are unbelievable. Lol.

    Kinda classless of Canty, btw. He didn’t have to cut down the QB that basically carried his sorry giants defense to SB 46. Eli Manning was out of his mind clutch the year they won SB46. His Oline was garbage, that D was putrid, and the run game was dead last. Canty can’t kiss that ring without Eli Manning and everyone knows it.

  47. bkeating51 says: May 25, 2013 6:38 PM

    These off-season debates get so tedious, so quickly. There are a thousand different ways to measure one QB against another. Depending on which you use you can make either QB look best.

    Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback in the history of the league (so say most people). Manning has beaten him three straight times in great duels: two Super Bowls and, probably the hardest, a regular season game at Foxboro where Brady had not been beaten by an NFC team in about 99 years.

    So Manning is better than Brady. But the Ravens massacred the Giants in the week 16 or whatever game, effectively killing the Giants’ playoff hopes. So Flacco was obviously a lot better than Manning and therefore better than Brady also.

    Etc., Etc., and so forth.

    It may not be fair, but the QB whose team wins the big playoff games and regular system games is going to be favored.

  48. ahostiletakeover says: May 25, 2013 6:51 PM

    I’m sick of all of the criticism of Flacco’s first 4 and a half years without mentioning two key words: Cam Cameron. Its no coincidence that Brees and Rivers careers took off statistically when they were separated from Cameron and if Flacco’s 6 full games last year with Caldwell at the helm are any indication, the Cam-free formula will hold true next year with Flacco. Cameron himself even said that his firing was a smart move by the Ravens, so what does that say about him holding that offense back since 2010?

  49. classyjacklambert says: May 25, 2013 6:53 PM

    Both are streaky, Flacco and Eli can have great games in the Super Bowls and lose to mediocre opponents on a regular basis as well. Both have shown signs of greatness but neither is consistently brilliant. I would say Flacco is probably the 9th best QB in the league and Eli the 10th, it’s close but Canty might be right in this scenario.

  50. scoobies05 says: May 25, 2013 7:10 PM

    anquan was certainly on fire and a key ingredient in the playoff run. but that facts are hes slow and cant get open. i think the ravens can replace 60 to 70 catches and 4 tds.

  51. scoobies05 says: May 25, 2013 7:49 PM

    no whining nofool. i believe your quote was that you loved all the hatred being directed towards the ravens on the mt rushmore thread. so i am just doing what you do. if it good enough for the steelers its good enough for me

  52. ravenunitas says: May 25, 2013 8:16 PM

    ahostiletakeover…..that was the best and most intelligent post I’ve read on here. Cam Cameron is a good coach but his offensive schemes are well…….offensive. It was no coincidence that Flacco took off after he was fired,you are correct.

  53. Joemontanaflacco says: May 25, 2013 8:21 PM

    Check again, Nofool. You’re the one who’s wrong. Oh wait, you’ve exceeded your screen time for the day. MOMMY?!?!

    And classyjacklambert, please don’t tell us Roethlisbooger is ranked higher than Flacco. Not in any category on or off the field.

  54. barbeaux says: May 25, 2013 8:54 PM

    Boldin made Flacco and not the other way around. As I recall, most of flacco’s deep balls were terrible. I’d find myself thinking “oh wow that’s way off” then I’d think “oh wow boldin made an adjustment and caught that!”

  55. cmb986874 says: May 25, 2013 9:01 PM

    Flacco outplayed every gb to ever play the game in the playoffs and matched Montana… enough said!

  56. cmb986874 says: May 25, 2013 9:02 PM

    oh and top 5 defense every year check the stats again my friend!

  57. eagles512 says: May 25, 2013 9:50 PM

    Not a huge Flacco guy but I’d take him over Eli.

  58. ceschatz says: May 25, 2013 10:46 PM

    they both are mediocre and get bailed out by their defenses, what’s the difference?

  59. scoobies05 says: May 26, 2013 7:07 AM

    flacco played at an elite level in the playoffs and super bowl last year leading an offense that put up over 30 pts against 2 top 5 defenses. he was far from mediocre and was not bailed out by the offense.

  60. kev86 says: May 26, 2013 10:15 AM

    Eli and the Giants beat the 18-0 Patriots. I think a well deserved thank you is long overdue. Enough with the Eli bashing already. He is already a legendary QB and not even close to being done.

  61. CKL says: May 26, 2013 4:02 PM

    They were bashing Sanchez on some show recently and they put up a list of Qbs with the most turnovers since 09. Eli was third to Sanchez and Rivers. One thing that makes a QB elite is not making bad situations worse. Eli is fully capable of doing just that. He’s also fully capable of making big plays in big spots. He’s just not consistent. Neither is Flacco. Flacco doesn’t turn the ball over nearly as much as Eli, but I also wouldn’t count on him as much in a tight game as I would Eli. Both had amazing playoff runs in their first SB victories. They are obviously both QBs who are capable of QBing SB wins. That’s really all that matters.

    Well like Canty, you failed math and statistics and would not make it as a quantitative social scientist. First of all many seasons Eli had between 60% and 81% completion rate, as a mean average with a standard error of less than 5. 2 superbowls and MVP in both, and he has no ego. i think you are thinking of Peyton. Eli is one of the most humble ppl in the world. He never talks about himself and always credits his team. In fact, Eli Manning used the same quote as Peter Senge in his book the Fifth Discipline” about team learning and not about his legacy but the legacy of the team. I am not taking anything away from Joe Flacco as a talented QB but he is not in the same league with Eli. We will talk in 5 years, then compare.

  63. bosspower says: May 27, 2013 12:30 PM

    I’m a Giants fan, 1) Canty U didnt win a SB with Flacco so wat are U doing???? 2) since we on the subject, I like Joe Flacco, He is a Winner. Joe Flacco was leading fourth quarter playoff drives when his recievers were dropping the rock in the clutch, while Eli is a winner and the Recievers CATCH the passes in the fourth quarter in the clutch. That is the difference really between the 2. If I couldnt have Eli on my Giants, I wouldnt mind having a QB who could go to Denver, then go to New England, and as long as time is on the clock he expects to win these games. Wouldnt mind it at all!!!!!

  64. bosspower says: May 27, 2013 12:36 PM

    I would say Eli’s last Postseason was better than Flacco’s. Eli went thru Matt Ryan, Aaron MVP Rodgers on the road, the 49ers on the road, and Tom Brady. Flacco went thru Andy Dalton, Peyton 9-11 playoff record Manning on the road, Brady on the road, and the 49ers in New Orleans.

  65. gammynomnom says: May 27, 2013 12:44 PM

    Eli, on the other hand, has had a couple of pretty staggering seasons statistically, in addition to the clutch playoff moments.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    LOL, you mean like throwing a staggering 25 ints?

  66. bosspower says: May 27, 2013 12:45 PM

    LOL I mean guys still talking about Eli forcing a trade???? That showed how smart Eli was, He stuck Phillip Rivers over there in that mess called San Diego, Eli had respect for Drew Brees and knew that it was the Defense that was blowing games and did not want to be apart of a superbowl less franchise. Eli said “I could start in NY and bring Multiple Championships to NY”…..which he has done along with 2 SB MVP’s. that just smart business. The NFL is a business and You have to be a business man. He didnt feel his talents would be maximized in SD. From the looks of things he was right!!!!!

    Flacco us just getting started and Eli’s replacement has already been assigned. Ryan Nassib.—Eli is only 4 years older.

    Bold Prediction-Flacco wins at least 3 more Superbowls, starting this year.—-Extremely bold. Let’s see how he does without Boldin.

    Credit the whole team around him but Flacco will be instigating critics eternity as he runs rampant through the NFL for years to come. Beware the Ravens are just getting started CAW—Bye bye Ray and Ed

    He’s just saying what he thinks people, mostly in Baltimore, want to hear from someone playing for their team. He would say the same thing if he signed with Pittsburgh (pun intended).

    Bold prediction – Even bolder than skins winning it all this year but more than likely to happen. Asked the same question, Canty will be saying the same exact thing of his new QB vs. his old QB (Flacco) when his contract expires in B-more and ends up signing, a league minimum, one-year deal with another team.

    Take it easy on Canty. What do you expect him to say now that he’s a Raven? And he did it without bashing Eli. Class act who gave us all he had – and a few glowing moments – in NY when he could stay healthy. Wish the man luck – unless he’s playing Big Blue.

    As a Raven’s fan, I agree with alot of the posts listed-both are good quarterbacks-I wouldn’t put Joe ahead of Eli just yet. Let them play out their careers first. I just hope that the Giants take care of that bunch of wannabees in Wasington. Go Gints!
