Best Answer

Joe Flacco became the starting Quarterback for the Ravens during the 2008 season.

Initially drafted out of Delaware with the 18th pick in the first round, he was at the time the Ravens 3rd string backup QB. The Ravens signed him to a 5-year, $30 million contract.

Critical injury to primary QB Kyle Boller and illness to backup QB and former Heisman Trophy Winner Troy Smith during pre-season, propelled Flacco to the starting QB position.

He is the only rookie quarterback in NFL history to start all 16 games in the regular season, take his team to the playoffs and win 2 playoff games (lost to the Steelers in the AFC Championship game). He is also the only quarterback in league history to lead his team to the playoffs in his first 5 seasons, with at least one playoff win in each year.

For his efforts during the 2008 season and 2009 playoffs, Flacco was awarded Rookie of the Year.
