Chris Canty would take Joe Flacco over Eli Manning

Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Chris Canty seems to have forgotten who got him his one and only Super Bowl ring.

During an appearance on Pro Football Talk on NBCSN he said that he would prefer to have Joe Flacco as his quarterback over Eli Manning.

“He won a Super Bowl and he’s one of the best deep-ball passers in the NFL,” Canty said, per ProFootballTalk.com.  “Take a look at the tape.”

Canty gave Manning credit for being “good in clutch situations when you’ve got to have that fourth-quarter drive,” but he believes in Flacco more.

“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.”

I wouldn’t expect Canty to say anything else since he’s no longer on the Giants.
