Sportsman of the Week Ending 1/20/2013

On a weekend with two huge comeback victories to propel (Harbaugh-led) teams to the Super Bowl, this blog was particularly impressed with the performance of one of the quarterbacks.  Joe Flacco significantly out-dueled Tom Brady, to the point that he looked like the Super Bowl veteran QB instead of Brady as he led his team confidently to multiple second half scores (three in a row to span the critical end-of-3Q-start-of-4Q).  Flacco threw for 3 TD's, all in the second half, overall was 21-36 for 240 yards (157 in the second half), but consistently made the right decisions and avoided putting the ball in peril.  Flacco certainly thrust himself into the elite QB conversation, and is a worthy Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
