Find Out Which State Googles 'Is Joe Flacco Elite?' the Most

Folks in Maryland want to know if their QB is one of the best in the NFL.

What Each State Googles The Most


Is Joe Flacco an elite quarterback?

This age-old sports question regarding the Baltimore Ravens quarterback has stirred as much national debate as the infamous O.J. Simpson trial, or even whether the infamous dress was black and blue or white and gold.

And no U.S. state argues about Flacco's quarterback skills more than Maryland, where the Ravens play their home games.

Estately, a real estate search database that provides detailed information about the surrounding area of homes, among other things, created a map that shows what each state Googles the most in comparison with other states.

What did Maryland search the most? "Is Joe Flacco an elite quarterback?"

Ravens fans—and NFL fans in general—can't seem to reach a consensus on whether the one-time Super Bowl champ is an elite quarterback. The debate is real, and it's starting to pick up again, like a bad cold that won't go away.

Remember when a fan held up a poster asking the time-honored question at the first Republican Presidential debate in Cleveland last August?

Who would've guessed that the question that continues to stimulate so much debate among sports fans would make it into the political arena? Flacco isn't that polarizing. Sure, he won a Super Bowl in 2013, when he had one of his best seasons, throwing for 3,817 yards, the highest in his career at the time; he also threw 22 touchdown passes.

Flacco is a quarterback who makes plays when plays need to be made. He's not flashy—he simply does what he needs to do. He proved that in the Super Bowl, throwing for 287 yards and three touchdowns to help the Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers 34-13.
