GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump finally laid to rest the question that has been burning for so many sports fans: Is Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco elite?
Trump says without a doubt, he is.
The question, much debated about in the sports realm, gained national attention during the GOP debate when a man held a sign asking that question in the back of MSNBC's "Hardball" broadcast in Cleveland.
"I think Joe Flacco is actually a very elite quarterback," Trump said during a question and answer segment hosted on his Twitter account. "He won a Super Bowl, he did it really to a certain extent with that great arm of his. I would say absolutely, he is an elite quarterback."
There you have it, it's settled. Flacco has thrown for more than 26,000 yards and 150 touchdowns in his career, and led the Ravens to a Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII.
